As I was heading home from work today, it dawn onto me why would anyone else be a wedding filmmaker? or in Singapore, we can call ourselves as videographer.
Technically, both a filmmaker and videographer’s job are almost the same. We create videos for our clients be it corporate or couples getting hitched and would like to have their wedding day documented on film.
So the question comes to my mind. Why a wedding filmmaker?
For myself, I am able to answer with ease. I would want to document a wedding couple’s happiest moment in their life. The day when they pledge their love to one another. The day where everyone is happy. Besides that, I want to like for my wedding clients and people who view those videos know that true love or love itself between people exist.; be it parents and children or husband and wife.
I was a finance manager in a research centre in a local university in Singapore before jumping the bandwagon to do wedding videography with the team at Alvinadeline Weddings. If it wasn’t for Alvinadeline, I would probably not have chose to leave my job then. You may wish to take a look at their works and you will know why.
For the past few years, I have watched countless of wedding videos, many touched my heart and many made me wonder why did the videographer chose to do this full time.
If you do engage any wedding filmmaker or videographer for your wedding, do ask him/her why they chose to leave their previous occupation to pursue wedding filmmaking.
