Videography: Why It Should Be In Your Wedding Budget

May 31, 2022 Blog

Time and time again, couples ask an important question when planning their wedding: “Is wedding videography worth it?

The question is often asked once the wedding photographer is chosen. Why not get the best of both worlds with a photographer and videographer?

Remember, photographers aim to capture the essence of each special moment through a series of photos, while videographers focus on documenting your wedding story in its natural flow.

Here are three great factors to consider when deciding whether wedding videography is worth it:

Hear Everything

The biggest difference between the two is that your wedding video will offer some of the actual audio from your big day.

You will be able to hear the moment you said “I do”, the heartfelt speeches from close family and friends, and the special moments in between. As you celebrate each anniversary, you’ll be able to relive the day exactly as it unfolded. You’ll be able to hear your father’s words, and see his expressions.

Capture All The Moments

Looking to capture all of those amazing wedding moments? You won’t miss a minute with effective videography.

Aside from the big memories, you’ll also have the in-between moments on film – the groom’s emotions before the first look, your grandmother dancing at your reception, your flower girl walking down the aisle, and more.

Take It Anywhere

Once documented, your love story can go anywhere with you – and can be shared for many years to come.

If you’re really stuck on whether wedding videography should be a part of your budget, think about other items that are only temporary, like flowers, food, and even the dress.

Now, consider the value of a video that will last a lifetime. Think it’s worth it?

Weddings Safety During COVID-19

September 30, 2020 Blog

Wedding Safety Covid-19Allure Films’ Commitment to Wedding Safety

Weddings are still happening right now, and our Allure Films team wants to make our clients feel as safe as possible on their wedding days. We work with clients in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, primarily, and we follow all Pennsylvania COVID-19 event requirements. Pre coronavirus, our goal was to capture a celebration while not being intrusive. That is still the case for today as well, just with extra precautions. Some additions include specialized sanitation practice, Zoom video, and physical distancing.

Over the years, we received many reviews from clients saying that they did not even realize we were filming until seeing the video after. Our videographers tell a story from the background and catch the intimate details that make the wedding so special.

Now, a little has changed. Generally, the only time we need to interact during the event is to put a microphone on someone. These microphones are wiped down and sanitized before and after. There are quite a few ways to limit interaction between us, the couple, and the guests. There are even ways to include those who could not attend.

We have introduced the idea of a Zoom Wedding. Weddings are not only for the couple, but also to celebrate among family and friends. To adhere to safety conditions, we set up a Zoom call for guests to join. Guests can use a specialized link to view their loved ones special day and wish them congratulatory remarks. Streaming a wedding is a simple and safe way to include guests who cannot attend.

Along with sanitation practices, our videographers wear masks and social distance from the couple and their guests. We adhere to all CDC guidelines to ensure that any event is the safest it can possibly be. Some of our cameras are also remote operated. These cameras are meant to stay in one place and capture that area while we control how they operate from a distance. We do everything we can to ensure that we are out of sight and out of mind, while still presenting a beautiful film at the end of the day.

A Heartfelt Wedding at the Kimmel Center

September 11, 2019 Blog, Jewish, Kimmel Center

kimmel centerJames and Kara dated for four years before tieing the knot at the Kimmel Center. Together, they read each other personalized vows. James chose a poem for Kara, mixed with funny anecdotes and heartfelt thoughts. James wrapped up his vows by saying, “Kara you mean everything in the world to me, you complete my life, it’s time to end this poem, so I can finally call you my wife.”

Their ceremony had many touching moments. Family members took turns wishing them well and helping to join them together. Holding back tears, Kara’s brother and best friend officially pronounced them husband and wife.  In between the ceremony and reception, the Kimmel Center transformed for the reception. All About Events made sure that everything went smoothly and beautifully for the happy couple. We also worked with Emily Wren Photography who helped capture this special day. For entertainment, BVT Live’s Jellyroll also performed at the reception. The loving atmosphere and excellent music kept everyone together on the dancefloor.

Our Allure Films team was so grateful to be a part of James and Kara’s day at the Kimmel Center.  We hope every day is filled with happiness and love. Congratulation Kara and James!

A Beautiful Wedding at the Phoenixville Foundry

August 22, 2019 Blog, Phoenixville Foundry

phoenixville foundryLisa and Jaime compliment each other in every way. From the start, Jaime made sure to go above and beyond in their relationship. Lisa’s father recognized this when Jaime arranged a surprise party for Lisa’s birthday. It was then that her father knew that Jaime would be the one for Lisa. This all led to their wedding day at the Phoenixville Foundry.

The Phoenixville Foundry was a perfect place for Jaime and Lisa to have their wedding. The venue’s rustic style, high ceilings, and mezzanine gave them a unique space for celebration. At the Foundry, we were happy to work with Dhoom Events, who provided entertainment, and Uncorked Studios who took photos of the day.

Throughout their wedding day, the two never stopped smiling. Lisa and Jaime share a connection like no other that everyone in the room can pick up on. We were so lucky that our Allure Films team could capture such a special day for them filled with dancing, laughter, and love.

Congratulations Lisa and Jaime! We hope you have many more happy memories together.

Karen and Matt’s Wedding of Laughter and Love

Our Lady of Lourdes Crystal Tea RoomEveryone knows one of the keys to a good relationship is being able to have fun together. Throughout their wedding day, entertaining moments showcased Karen and Matt’s personalities.  They tied the knot at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Glassboro, New Jersey and celebrated their reception at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia.

With wedding day nerves, Matt accidentally said, “I, Karen” when starting his vows. Laughter spread throughout the church and nervousness turned into hilarity. After the mishap, Karen said this moment made everything so much better. The rest of the ceremony went off without a hitch. Family and friends watched this special couple come together as one.

Our Allure Films team captured all of these wonderful wedding moments on video. Our partners at Philip Gabriel Photography took photos of the endless smiles throughout the day. We followed the wedding party to their reception venue at the Crystal Tea Room. This beautiful venue gave the couple a gorgeous space to continue their celebration. BVT Live’s Jellyroll Band kept the fun going with entertainment that kept everyone on the dance floor.

It is always a privilege to film couples that are undeniably right for each other. The newlywed couple celebrated their day with so much laughter and love.
