Why Wedding Videography?
Since the announcement that I am now offering Wedding Videography services, I have been asked why. Why of all things did you choose Wedding Videography? And, I am going to be honest; I understand the line of questioning. When you sit down and look at my what I have set out to do and why I created ENH Studios; this definitely comes as a surprise. I have always wanted to make movies, so when I made the decision to produce Web Sites instead of movies, it came as a shock. And now I have made even more waves by saying, "We are slowly stepping away from producing Web Sites and stepping into the world of happiness."
And with that, that's the answer. Happiness. Simple but elegant.
I remember most of my wedding; it all flies by in a blur. And looking at the photo's of the wedding, it helps paint that picture of that wonderful night. But photo's only go so far. If I had a video completing that picture, I could remember everything. While wedding Videography isn't as popular as it used to be; it's still an important overlooked piece.
So, who pushed me to start offering Wedding Videography services? My wonderful wife of course. She started a photography business not too long ago and had a desire to provide Wedding Photography services, and in truth; her dream was for the two of us to work together as a husband and wife team. She, taking the primary camera and being the face of our business together. However, there is only one thing about that plan: I am not a Photographer. When we discussed the idea of a husband and wife team, I wasn't thrilled. Not because I didn't want to work with her, far from it. I would love to have business where I get to work alongside my wife. But, again, the problem lies within the fact that I am not a Photographer.
It then became, okay; I want to work alongside my wife, what can I do? I thought about being a manager of sorts, then realized, "She is incredibly smart, she will have no problems managing her own business.". If not a manager, what else could I do? It hit me thinking at that moment, "I am a Videographer!". The dream has always been to make movies, but then thinking realistically at this moment, there is not much money I can make without going to California, Georgia or North Carolina. I can however; utilize the skills I have and skills I obtained from working with SIU School of Medicine, and produce phenomenal wedding videos
I am super excited for this adventure. Not only do I get to capture the memories of wonderful weddings and make those memories available forever; I also get to work alongside my wonderfully talented wife. This will be a hard and difficult journey for sure and in the end, it will all be worth it.
With that, I invite you to take a look at the packages that I offer. You will notice that there is only two packages available; I find that the simple the choice is, the better. Let's face it; planning is a wedding is filled with difficult choices. And of course, that is why there are only a few add-on's available. I designed my packages based on what other Videogaphers offered and how complex they made it. In the end, I came up with the aforementioned packages. Offering everything you will need.
With everything I have presented to you about why I chose to offer Wedding Videography Services, I will leave you with a wonderful quote about marriage. "The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife." - Barbara De Angelis
