For many people, documenting a wedding is a very important task. In fact, many couples may spend hundreds of dollars ensuring that each special moment is captured on film. Fortunately, if you want to capture memories without emptying your wallet, here are 3 tips on how to get more video footage of your wedding day for less:
Ask guests to upload videos to YouTube so that you can download them later
For almost any event, it is a given that someone will have a camera handy. Whether they have a camcorder or mobile phone, you may be able to find great footage of your special day to use. In fact, you can ask guests attending the festivities to upload their videos to YouTube so that you can download the content using YouTube Downloader.
Along with collecting videos, you can also ask guests to upload pictures that they have taken as well. Fortunately, it’s very easy to gather pictures since many people upload images to Facebook to share with others. When people start uploading pictures of your special day, you can simply download the best ones to keep for your own use as well. However, it’s best to always ask for permission before downloading and using images to prevent any ill feelings.
Once you have all the videos and pictures downloaded (with permission), you can use the best pieces to create a very unique wedding video.
Use an inexpensive video editor
To create a unique video of your wedding day, you can simply use video editing software. Fortunately, many computers include a free program for putting together videos. However, if you want something a little more fancy, you may have to purchase a video editor with more features and better performance.
When using a video editor like iMovie, it is very easy to put together video clips and images to create a special recording of your wedding day. By familiarizing yourself with the program, you can also learn how to add voiceovers, sound effects, music, text, transitions, and more. Once you export your movie, you have the option to upload it directly to various platforms or download it onto your computer.
Put your video onto DVDs
Once you have the wedding video downloaded onto your computer, it’s easy to burn the video onto DVDs to share with your friends and family. Fortunately, you can buy packages of blank DVDs for relatively cheap, so you will not have to worry too much about the additional expense.
If you want to be really fancy with your DVDs, you can print out unique labels to place onto the disks. By creating a unique label, the DVDs will look more professional and impressive than regular disks labeled with a marker.
As you can see, it’s easy to create great videos without making your wedding day that much more expensive. With free footage and inexpensive video editing software and DVDs, you can watch your special day over and over for years to come.
Make sure to remember to respect IP.
