I think wedding movies are a really great way of capturing the day but, if you're on a tight budget, then it may not be worth the money. When I got married, I employed a fantastic wedding photographer in Dordogne and he captured photos and made a movie for me. As much as I got a beautiful video and photos
, I must admit that I look at the photos more often than I do the video.
I use the photos to decorate my house. They're also on my Facebook page, and I show them to friends and family when they visit, but the video doesn't get nearly as much attention. Me and my husband do watch it occasionally when we're reminiscing but I definitely think that photographs are a better investment if you just have to choose one. If you have the budget for both though, go for it!
