Journalistic vs. Cinematic Wedding Videos


Journalistic Wedding Videos

Sometimes people refer to journalistic videos as documentary videos. Journalistic videos tend to document the wedding day events throughout the day in a linear fashion. The finished product tells a story from the start of the day to the end, and sometimes it includes sound bites. Common sound bites include the wedding ceremony and toasts. Journalistic wedding videographers are less obtrusive, staying more in the background to capture the wedding footage.

Cinematic Wedding Films

Cinematic wedding films are shot more in the style of a movie, with an emphasis on the emotional aspect of the big day. Videographers incorporate music, special effects, or montages into the film. Generally, cinematic wedding cinematographers interact with the wedding party quite a bit, sometimes setting scenes up in a similar fashion to wedding photographers.

In many cases, journalistic and cinematic styles interlap in wedding videography, and our wedding cinematographers at Yours Truly strive to customize our films to best capture your big day.
