I didn’t think we needed a videographer. Once we started planning our wedding and booking our vendors, we went through what many couples go through regarding the gross underestimation of exactly how much a wedding costs. We started making lists to see exactly where we could cut costs. A photographer is a must. A caterer is a must. A venue, obviously…a must. Videography fell lower and lower on the priority list. Then,http://www.597788.org/597788_com/201503/179.html, one night when I was deep in wedding Googling mode, I found Long Haul Films.

I originally came across Long Haul via Pinterest when I discovered this beautiful wedding on Style Me Pretty. I hesitantly clicked through to learn more about the filmmakers, knowing that videography wasn’t really in our plans. When I read that they were based in Boston,http://www.78456.org/www_78456_org/201503/186.html,香港天下彩报码, I felt like it was fate. These people who, in the last five minutes,http://www.47492.info/47492_com/201503/16.html, had become my dream film team were also based in our area??
I then did what any normal bride would do and watched nearly every wedding video on their website. I’ll be honest with you (because I always am) and admit that some of them made me cry. Take a moment to picture me,http://www.872879.org/www_872879_org/201503/188.html, alone on the couch with my laptop and my cat, watching videos of strangers getting married on the internet and weeping.

In the next several weeks, I watched all of the videos again. I made Mr. Tractor watch some. I sent some to my parents and Mr. Tractor’s parents. I watched more. Mr. Tractor used to yell to me from the other room when he heard the music, “Are you watching wedding videos again??” “Yes!” I would pitifully sniff. Eventually we emailed Lindsey, the studio manager at Long Haul, to inquire about their prices and availability. Yes, they were available on our date. Yes,http://www.47492.info/www_47492_info/201503/15.html,http://www.k930.org/www_k930_org/201503/182.html, videography services would be a big monetary investment. We met with Lindsey, as well as Megan,http://www.47492.info/47492_com/201503/14.html, one of the cinematographers, to get more information. One of the things they said to us was this (I’m paraphrasing, of course):
“You will spend months, if not a year or more,http://www.448448.org/www_448448_org/201503/187.html, planning out every tiny detail of your wedding day. It will be so meaningful and so beautiful, but it will go by in a flash. Photography helps to capture many of those details, but film can help to transport you back to the day.”
Sigh…they’re so right. Additionally,日月谷心水论坛, the more we thought about it,香港天下彩报码, the more we concluded that you’ve gotta go big or go home on videography: no uncle with a video camera would ever compare to the talented, artistic work of film professionals like Long Haul. We talked it over some more, discussed it with our family, and then finagled our lists and budgets to make room for videography.
We feel so lucky to have Long Haul on our team. Not only are they professionals, but they are true artists. Imagining our wedding day through the Long Haul lens makes me giddy with excitement.http://www.88829.info/xianggangzuizaokaijiangjieguo/201503/13.html, MA Occupation: Occupational therapist Venue: Smith Barn at Brooksby Farm --> PREVIOUS POSTGallery of the Day: February 17, 2015 NEXT POSTClassifieds: February 17, 2015 Related Posts Wedding Bands: The Musical Type02/12/15 @ 9:27 am The Wedding Vendor I Didn’t Know I Needed02/09/15 @ 9:27 am Bridesmaid Mini Books02/13/15 @ 10:32 am Venice, California Engagement Shoot: Part 102/03/15 @ 12:13 pm
