To Video or Not to Video You’re Wedding Day

Videography has always been a great way to capture one of your most precious moments in your life. In the past, video and photo album’s was the only way to view your wedding day and share it with family and friends.

Many professional photographers in NYC have now switched over to digital photography and are no longer using film photography. With digital photography now becoming more popular for weddings and other special occasions you now have an alternative choice when it comes to viewing your wedding day.

Digital Photo Slideshows have been around for a while now and are being used in advertising, fashion industry, real estate and many other areas of business. They are now being used to produce professional slideshows for weddings and special occasions. Here is an excellent example:

Wedding and special occasion slideshows when artistically produced will have a high emotional impact on the viewers. This is accomplished by special photo effects on each slide as well as slide transitions and background music.

With photo slideshows you, the customer, help in the creation of your slideshow. You can capture the events leading up to your engagement as well as your milestone anniversaries in the years to come. All this is possible by adding these events to your DVD menu.

There are many slideshow services being offered on the internet and it can become difficult on which one to choose. You may also want to ask your wedding photographer if they offer the service. Some photographers may create your wedding slideshow for you or contract it out to a third party.

The following are the services a good Photo Slideshow Producer will offer you:

The Producer works with you in how you would like your slideshow to look. This also includes the DVD label and case as well as the DVD menu.

You may also want to ask the Producer if he or she can add your engagement photos leading up to your wedding as well as special anniversaries in the coming years.

The option of viewing your slideshow on the web before the Producer finalizes and burns the slideshow to your DVD. This gives you a chance to tell the Producer of any changes you want to make.

Ask your Photographer or Producer if they can save your slide show in another format so that you can upload it to YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video or any other free video hosting service for viewing by family and friends. With videography you are only capturing your wedding day and nothing else leading up to that special day and in the years to come. Video is just not the ideal choice any longer in capturing your life events.

A Wedding Photographer, on average, will take as many as 500 plus pictures with their digital camera. These pictures can be made available to you on a DVD. Why not put these pictures to good use.

Combining your own digital pictures leading up to your wedding day along with your milestone anniversaries and even the birth of your children, will become a keepsake of unforgettable memories.
