Wedding Videography – pronounced vi di og ra phy. First many people pronounce an “o” at the end of Video and again at the beginning of “ography”. This is not correct.
Videography is in effective the quite simply capturing a wedding with a motion media. It originally began in the 40′s and 50′s with 8mm or 16mm camera’s and developed by the year 2000 into means of storytelling one of the most important days of a couple’s life.
By the 70′s consumer available video tape recorders and cameras were available. With this very limited editing options were available. So many would pretty much just capture end to end coverage of the day. Delivered either on the tape it was captured on or as a duplicate. Very expensive editing soon became available and instead of keeping things simple videographer’s opted to add effects, titling which was often considered more cheesy. As 3 D and computer animation continued and became less expensive the options for cheesy 3d bells ringing or rings moving became more prevelent. Many people opted not to purchase videos because of this.
Bring on the advent of photojournalism and storytelling and video has become an incredible tool to deliver in a short form factor the more enjoyable and powerful moments of the day. Now Same Day Edits are king.
