I recently came across an awesome website and service called My Flip Wedding from Storymix Media. Everyone constantly tells me our day will fly by before I know it and will be done in the blink of an eye, and this makes me sad to think about. I've always been a "documenter." In High School, I was always the one with the camera, and video camera. If anyone ever forgot to bring their camera somewhere they thought "Oh that's ok, Laura will have hers". This has been even more true as I attend all my friend's weddings. I have documented and video recorded everyone's wedding to the best of my non-professional ability. I have all my friend's entrances, cake-cuttings, first dances, etc., to have on hand for slideshows, scrapbooks, and general memories. But this leads me to one question: Will anyone do that for me at my wedding? I realize that not everyone is as crazy about documenting as I am, so I can't honestly expect others to be as crazy as me about capturing every moment.
When we picked our photographer, we added on a basic videography package with our booking. But unfortunately, I have to say this was a decision based purely on getting a fair price for what it was, not about quality of product. I got the sense that Déjà Vu does not take their videography very seriously, and was not impressed by their video samples. I told myself that any documentation...was good documentation, sucked it up, and went on my way.
Besides the fact that we can get a great video keepsake to enjoy for the rest of our lives, the prices are really fabulous. Packages start at only $99.99. With My Flip Wedding there's no reason any couple can't capture their big day on video. Plus, with the cameras in the hands of your friends and family, you know you'll be saving the fun, personal, and intimate moments that you really want to see, especially since you won't be able to experience them all first hand.
And do you know just how lucky I am?! Storymix Media provided us with a coupon to use their product for our wedding!! After we get back from the honeymoon, I'll do another review to let you know how everything went but I can't wait to share my video with you all when it's done! For now, check out a sample from another wedding that used My Flip Wedding:
