HD Video for your wedding
By Paul Keenan, Banquet Manager, Highlawn Pavilion
High-quality “HD” or high-definition videos are all the rage for capturing many of today’s wedding ceremonies and receptions. The better the quality, the more easily viewed the video will be when you post it on YouTube and Facebook. HD video will also last longer and stay “up-to-date” for more years than the alternative video technologies. Another benefit of state-of-the-art video equipment is that they can record well even in low light situations, so the videographer doesn’t need to set up lights, which can be intrusive and time consuming to set up. The downside is that HD videography costs more than a standard formats – after all, the equipment costs more. But the cost differential should come to a plateau as all videographers will be using this technology in the near future.
If you’re considering having your wedding ceremony or your wedding reception professionally recorded on video, consult the staff at the venue for recommendations. Here at Highlawn Pavilion, for example, we have a rolodex of qualified videographers. They’re all very good, but some might be more suited to a particular size or kind of wedding ceremony than another videographer might be.
All the best,
