Hiring a Videographer

Growing up I was never the victim of endless parental videos of momentous occasions or random ones either. We never had a video camera so I never really understood the importance of home videos. Also the fact that "wedding videos" have a bad rep from the 80's and 90's as being your stationary ceremony video with little to no imagination.

Upon being introduced to the magical world of wedding blogs I started to notice more and more wedding videos. I didn't really feel like watching most of them but when my photographer, Meredith, posted about her sister's business, Inkspot Crow, I fell head over heels in love. I was hooked. (Y'all they ARE FAB so check them out!) BUT for me, I wasn't hooked on the price. Just getting the photographer was hard enough. So the more and more I looked the more my hopes got crushed because there was no way we could pay for one.

Then one day in September I saw this video:

Jenna & Jac Wedding from Scott Simerly Jr. on Vimeo.

It was a girl I went to college with and of course, the video made me tear up. So I decided to email the man behind the magic and he was AVAILABLE and in my price range!! OMG, fate right?! Then, I showed Fiance and low and behold, he KNEW the guy because he is a fellow Alumnus of NCSU! Obviously it was meant to be right?!

So as of Wednesday it's official, Scott Simerly of Simile Productions will be producing our wedding video and I honestly could NOT be more excited!! I about burst with glee when he said YES! I cannot wait to see what Scott can do and further more I can't wait for our wedding. It's so freaking close!!
