Most wedding videos come in two different forms: documentary and cinematic style. So how do you know which style you want? Here is an overview of each to help you figure it out.
Documentary Style Wedding Video
A documentary style wedding video, also known as a journalistic approach, essentially gives you a play-by-play of the entire wedding. It is typically shown in chronological order and edited to keep the audience engaged. This is the traditional approach for wedding videos, so it can capture all of the special moments of the day.
The cinematic approach is an artistic way of displaying your wedding without missing any of the important moments. It focuses on telling the story of your wedding, which means that it is not necessarily edited chronologically. The shots are placed wherever they seem more fit for telling your story in a creative way. It can move from your morning prep, to the toasts, to the wedding vows, to the dancing. It not only captures all or your special moments, but also the guests. Since you can’t be in two places at once, this video style will also allow you to see what your guests were doing when you were getting your photos taken. The cinematic style has that Hollywood feel, with special camera angles and high-end equipment that captures your wedding day in the most beautiful way possible. This movie of your wedding day will have a musical soundtrack that will help depict the emotion of the day.
