What Is the Difference Between a Wedding Film and a Wedding Video?
Nothing! They are the same thing. The reason why people are now using the word ""film"" over ""video"" (myself included) is due to the fact that sometimes the phrase ""Wedding Video"" conjures up images of boring long old time wedding videos from back in the day before the industry really started stepping up their game. A lot goes into wedding videos and the wedding videographers(or filmmakers) want to be closer... Read More »
