Why Video?

Are you asking yourself why you need professional cinematography or video for your event?  Maybe you are struggling with justifying the cost of professional film?  Especially since you will have a photographer taking still photos and your friend (with a good camera...wink, wink) offered to gift you by doing your video.  It will be covered and all sounds good, right? Sadly, no. It’s not always a happy ending.

Top 4 Reasons for Pro Video

1. Your photos don’t speak to you like your video. The vows, the toasts, the service, the oohs, and ahh’s. The gasp when you enter the room for the first time. Your professional film mixes the audio with the visuals for a full, emotionally charged viewing experience.

2. Not all people with a camera are event filmmakers. Take the bride who decided not to hire us and had a ‘friend’ film her wedding. The friend's one camera malfunctioned and, in a panic, the friend erased all the pre-reception footage.  Professionals, like Mares Productions, are prepared with gear, back-ups, alternate production plans, and calm demeanors.

3. Your day will quickly fly by and you will want more. You will want to go back and have a ‘re-do.’ With your professional video, you can be back there again, on the dance floor, or with loved ones, every time you push ‘play.’ Your film will transport you back to a day that you brought you immense joy and happiness.

4. Hiring a professional is not as expensive as the painful price of regret. It’s one time. Why chance it to someone who isn’t experienced? This is more than just another day in your life. It’s a day full of your hand-selected details and decisions. Everyone you love in your world is with you this day. Your Mares film will encompass the people and play that want to enjoy again and again. It’s an investment, not an expense.
