She took videography up professionally in 2011 and will be the one by your side on your wedding day. Darlene has a major love for travel and has been to over 45 countries but more than anything, she loves to be with her family. Whether it be a family ski day or just watching Netflix while eating pizza, they are her driving force for life.
I wanted to share a few thoughts I've had since doing video for over 10 years. I feel, especially for weddings, that video is on the bottom of the totem pole. Many times it's 'if' it can squeezed into their budget, they will have one. I can't tell you how many times I've been told how grateful they are that they have a video to relive all the feelings. The day goes by really fast and as important as photos are, they don't capture the emotions like video does. I've also been told countless times that they hardly ever look at their wedding photos but love watching their video on their anniversary. Now this brings me to the investment part. I don't quite understand why videographers aren't valued as highly as photographers.. We do as much work on the wedding day and then even more after with editing. Countless hours are spent editing a video. Truly countless hours. Then there is an investment in equipment. Higher end equipment means higher prices but it gives you a better quality video. I've had my fair share of hiccups which is why I've invested in equipment that will hopefully prevent anything tragic from happening. This includes microphones, drones, stabilizers, cameras, lenses, memory cards, external hard drives, editing devices... and the list goes on and on. I hope that this sheds a little light and value to your decision when it comes to having a wedding video. I truly feel it should be a priority! And I'm being totally honest, I just want to party with you on your big day!
