S2 E7: DO YOU NEED A WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER?

As photographers we know the importance of capturing memories so that your wedding day isn't forgotten after the day. A photographer is usually very high on the list of things you need to book when you start planning your wedding, and hiring a videographer is seen as a luxury.

But we've heard that a lot of married couples (including Katie!) biggest regrets is that they didn't have any video footage from their wedding day, and that if their budget had allowed they would have definitely hired a videographer. So this week we're joined by Andrew Tregoning to talk all about what exactly a videographer can do for you, and how much the wedding video has moved on from the old days of huge camcorders and cheesy films!

WHAT YOU'LL HEAR

- Why wedding videography is so important
- What you should expect to pay for a videographer
- How different Wedding Films are now
- What to look for in a videographer
