Las Vegas wedding videos have changed dramatically over the decades. Thankfully, its changed for the better.
Twenty years ago, my wife and I were married in Las Vegas. Wedding videos were relatively new then. We had a wedding video made and it was horrible. It could best be described as the National Geographic Wedding Channel 90-minute documentary of my wedding day. We’ve watched it twice, or maybe three times, and my mother refused to watch it for fear of dying of boredom.
Today, wedding videos have changed and Cashman Brothers has changed with the times.
Wedding videos are now short, entertaining pieces you can watch on Facebook. They aren’t docudramas any more. Now a Las Vegas wedding video tells a story, but it’s a shortened piece for our sound bite-filled world.
Even five years ago we would ask very few questions when our Las Vegas brides wanted wedding video. Is the wedding inside or outside? Do you want a traditional video in chapters or do you just want a clip to put on Facebook?
Now wedding videos can be short wedding films. We ask a few questions, just to get the conversation started. Then, as we learn more about the bride and groom, we build storylines. This could lead to a lip sync video shown at the reception with some of the guests participating. Or it might lead to a two day shoot telling a melodramatic love story, also shown at the reception.
It starts with some ideas from our Las Vegas brides and grooms. Then we add some of our own touches to the story to give it some production value. The final product is always something truly amazing, and absolutely personal for the bride and groom.
Not just any videographer can pull off a Las Vegas wedding film. It takes a team, a script and the right equipment, especially if the world premier is to be at the Las Vegas wedding reception. Even for Cashman Brothers it is always a challenge. But maybe that’s why we like shooting them so much. We like to push ourselves and create something new. After all, every wedding is as uniue as teh bride and groom themselves.
