Originally, Mr. Sea Monkey and I had decided against videography, so it was never in the budget. One night, I was checking my email and received a promo video from a videographer, and I cried. I’m not an emotional person, so this was big for me. I sat and watched as many videos as I possibly could that night. They were beautiful. They are very cinematic now, so they look like movie trailers for your wedding and, honestly, who hasn’t secretly dreamed of being in their own movie?

Watching them got me thinking. We were going to have a beautiful beach ceremony and nothing but pictures to capture it. Don’t get me wrong, pictures are beautiful, but they can only capture so much. They can’t capture the feelings and emotions that a moving video would be able to. They can’t capture the audio from the day.
