Did you know that only 38% of couples opt to have their wedding professionally videoed?
According to the same survey, of those that don’t, a whopping 68% regret their decision not to. Every newlywed will tell you that your wedding day rushes past. There will inevitably be amazing moments that you will miss but a good videographer would capture. Also consider that there are some things that just cannot be recorded with stills like your vows, speeches and first dance music.
We chatted to Dewitt Cillié of Light Lounge Cinematography, one of our favourite videography teams. Dewitt is head of lighting and in-house videographer, sound technician and video editor
