download (1)Over the years I have had many couples ask me this question. While the question itself is one of personal preference, I always direct couples back to their working wedding budget. What does your budget allow? If your actual working budget includes photography and videography then go for it. However, if your budget does not include both, you as a couple should decide which is more important to you, photography or videography?

I would in turn say that photography should always be on a must-hire list, but videographers are sometimes considered less of a priority. While your photographer will immortalize much of your wedding day, think of the sounds that can’t be captured in a photo, like your vows, the reception music, and the toasts. If your budget allows for both vendors, it’s worth the investment.

Here are some great articles that highlight some of those reasons why hiring a photographer and/or a videographer are so important.
