The “marriage” of photography and videography

It’s been said that a single image may be worth a thousands words.  That said, video footage speaks VOLUMES!  So, when it comes to one of the biggest days of your life, why wouldn’t you want it all?  Why would you limit yourself to photography OR video?

We photograph and videotape many of our events simultaneously.  To us at ACCSVP, it’s the perfect “marriage”.  Just as the day itself is about the union of two people, the merger of two families, and the making of memories, the job of the photographer and videographer is one that should be performed on a united front.

Isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?  You would think.  But, not always.

Why?  Well, it’s a little like courtship.  At ACCSVP, when we enter into the relationship with our clients as a photographer AND videographer, it’s as a TEAM.  Our goal is to capture the day in tandem.  This involves communication and cooperation, just like any relationship.

What happens when photography and videography go on a “blind date”?  As in any relationship, the results can be unpredictable.  Can it work out?  Sure!  We’ve been at a multitude of weddings that started out that way.  The couple just “clicked” (pardon the photo pun).  But, when it comes to photo and video, why take the chance?  It IS possible that a photographer or videographer who is used to working alone will be uncomfortable or even angered by working with another professional.  It can often times be a battle of wills—when it SHOULD be about satisfying the client.

Many clients are unaware of the “undercurrent” that goes on with vendors on your wedding day.  We strive to avoid the drama — there’s no “I” in “Team”.  Just something to think about when choosing photography and videography services.  Our photo and video services have been happily married for many years—with many more happy years ahead!
