4 Reasons Couples Schedule Time for Romantic Shots on their Wedding Day

At Zpro Films, we adore working with couples who recognize the importance of all of the finest details, as well as the power of romantic motion picture shots of the bride and groom on the wedding day. Regardless of how far along you are in the wedding planning process, scheduling dedicated time with your wedding cinematographers for romantic shots is a must from our perspective, and here are 4 reasons couples love scheduling dedicated time to capture these cherished moments:

1. Couples desire dedicated moments captured together apart from friends and family

From start to finish your wedding day will be jam-packed with hustle and bustle. From getting ready leading up to your ceremony and reception, couples sometimes don't realize how little time they actually spend together on their wedding day apart from family, friends and other events scheduled throughout their wedding day timeline. If you and your partner desire dedicated moments captured together, it's a must to schedule 15-30 minutes of alone time at a minimum and even up to 1 hour if possible to ensure your wedding film includes footage of just the two of you.

2. Couples desire more variety of memories to relive in their wedding highlight film

So many couples we meet with tell us how important it is to have an upbeat, creative, highlight film with a variety of moments shared together laughing, embracing, and simply spending quality time beyond the wedding ceremony and reception. We also love a fast-paced highlight film, and these kinds of films require more time for filming because we are utilizing more footage captured at a faster rate throughout your film. For couples who want a variety of b-roll sequences throughout their highlight film, romantic shots are crucial.

3. Couples desire to remember moments together in a unique way

Whether your wedding venue has picturesque views, unique architectural features for motion portraits, romantic spots to steal a kiss, or you simply take advantage of golden hour right before sunset, couples usually have these things in mind regardless of the style of film they have chosen and understand the importance of dedicated romantic shots for the bride and groom.

4. Couples desire to relive moments that carry on their legacy and represent who they are

Your wedding day is often one of the greatest days of your life! As such, you'll want to relive the stunning details of how you looked - hair, makeup, custom bridal wear, and how GQ your handsome groom looked gazing into your eyes. As much as these moments are for you and your future spouse, imagine showing your future children and grandchildren your keepsake wedding film. These romantic shots embody everything you are as a couple, the emotion, the passion, the joy, and love that brought you together in the first place. It will also represent your forever love and commitment to each other throughout your marriage!
