Why Wedding Videography Is a Must

See why these Pittsburgh brides opted for a videographer to be present when they said, “I do” and throughout the day.


Budgeting for both a photographer and videographer can seem overwhelming, but it’s one investment that couples are opting for, especially as highlight and preview videos are becoming more common.

In fact, one in three brides hires a videographer, according to a 2018 Forbes magazine study.

“It was definitely a no-brainer for me and my husband,” says Heidi Cain, who married Tom Sochacki on April 13, 2019. “We have had friends who had wedding videos and shared those on social media platforms before and it was fun to watch other peoples’, but we also knew it would be fun to have one of our own.”


According to Alyssa Thomas, owner of Alyssa Thomas Events, a common wedding highlight video can be anywhere from three to seven minutes. With such little time to fit in a day’s worth of material, it is important for brides and grooms to find the videographer that they feel will capture their day in the best way.

Heidi and Tom spoke with three videographers before connecting with Adrienne Wager at Driftwood Stories.

“We had a wedding planner (Kimberly Allera from Olive & Rose Events), and she had recommended some videographers for us to look at and I chatted with them to kind of get a feel and watch videos to see if it was the same style we were going for,” says Heidi.
