What makes a good story? This is the question you need to ask yourself when trying to choose a videographer for your wedding. Often it’s the unspoken words that tell the real story – the small details and moments that might otherwise go unnoticed and untold.
A talented videographer, whilst still documenting the entire day is able to stand back and quietly capture these real and honest moments like a brushing of fingertips, the wiping away of a tear and knowing glances. It is these small moments for us that can transform a wedding video in to a unique story. For some inspiration have a look at 2 of our favourite and very talented wedding videographers from South Africa.
