Wedding videography also known as traditional videography, is a video production that documents a wedding on video. The final result of the videographer’s documentation is commonly called a wedding video. It is also referred as a wedding movie, or a wedding film.
Wedding videography can discover its roots back to before the invention of the modern video camera through 8mm and 16mm films. When film was the only way to capture running subjects, a few enterprising individuals would take the family 8mm camera and film the weddings of friends and family. Those film cameras had a major limitation in the form of 4-minute load times. After capturing 4 minutes of film, the creator would have to load a new film cartridge. There were a few individuals who were able to turn the documentation of weddings into a business.
The ancient days of professional wedding videography were marked by primitive technology and technique, with the equipment generally producing low quality image. Cameras required better availability of light but still had fuzzy pictures, poor color saturation, and single-channel, poor quality audio. The weight of cameras was too much, with a separate unit that connected to the video recorder via a cable, severely limiting the videographer’s movement. In post-production, many wedding videos were not edited.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the state of the industry began to improve. Videographers start to establish regional and national organizations. The manufacturers told the existence digital cameras, removing the last of the technological barriers that had impeded wedding videography since it was established at the mid-1990s. The size cameras was improved. They were small in size, mobile, worked even better and faster than the already existing good analog cameras on the market in low light situations, and allowed the videographer to be discreet and not an intrusion to the events.
In the late 1990s, wedding videography had expanded beyond documentation of weddings. Most of the wedding videographers preferred to add the additional term of “event” to their description of service. New trends, such as Love Stories, Photo Montages (a retrospective collection of photographs set to music), music videos, family biographies, anniversaries, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, graduations, and many other one events happening once were also being documented in large numbers on video. The skill level of the industry’s members improved and post-production capabilities reflected the standards of commercial productions.
