Alternative Ways to Capture Moments That Last Forever

Of course, a wedding is very important, and at times it gets very serious; you are pledging yourself to another human being for the rest of your life after all. However, the moment that you want to capture forever should have more smiling faces than stern faces in it. It’s a celebration, and thus, it should show up as such when you look back in 20 or 30 years from now. Sometimes it can be an afterthought, because hiring a photographer to captivate your special day, isn’t as important as all the other things that actually, make the day possible. On the other hand, it could be something fun, interactive and very personal. It isn’t just about capturing the dress, the moment the bride and groom meet at the altar, it’s about the friends and family, the joyous occasions with the children and making the best out of looking your best, that matters.

Video vlogging

You could give the responsibility of capturing the day to a few of your closest friends and family. Modern retail video cameras are very high quality and have the ability to store a ton of footage onto their SD cards. You can easily switch out a card, and put another in, and within seconds, resume filming. Vlogging the entire day from multiple angles is a very, very personal approach. It’s the inside view of the entire wedding. You’ll get to see what your friends and family were doing when you were getting your hair ready. Instruct the wedding vloggers to go around and do interviews with the guests, and ask them what they think about the lucky couple, the party they put on and reminisce about old times. Even though you as the bride will technically be, behind the scenes, while the guests are the audience coming to see you, the truth behind the scenes is all the cogs and gears in the form of organizers, who should be filmed too.

Fun photography

A wedding is essentially a big party and the celebration of love. After you take your vows, the serious part is over, and now it’s time to have fun. You may never look this good again, with a lavish white dress and perfect hair and makeup, so strike the poses you want with Booth Boy. A booth-style photography is a great way to get that fun mood and vibe going. It captures all the friends and family while they let their hair down. There are props you can use and much around with a bit of role play. There are many different backgrounds, colors and lighting styles you can choose from to suit the current party mood. It’s a much more informal way of capturing the day, and not as serious as professional wedding photographers.

Capturing the moment can sometimes be a bit fake when you’re doing so with a traditional wedding photographer. It’s a lot of forced smiles and standing up straight and being perfectly still. There are alternative and more personal ways to capture your happy day, which show the true atmosphere and love you share with family and friends. You’ll look back on that day of fun and flair, while also reminiscing about the different personalities that were on show at your wedding.
