— By Raashka Mannie
19 June 2020
The phrase 'forever and always' comes to mind whenever we talk about videography because there's nothing quite like your wedding day immortalised in film.
Over the years, wedding videography has grown increasingly popular. It's one of the benefits of technology that we get to relive our special moments not just through stunning imagery, but through the careful art of filmmaking. Wedding videography offers a whole new facet of memory-making, the kind that doesn't fade or change like in our minds, helping to preserve your day in all its glory.
Auckland has several wedding videographers out and about - and the number is continuously increasing. Finding a good wedding videographer has come to be the question, rather than just finding one in general. We've got a list of some of the best wedding videographers in Auckland, with years of experience and a knack for making magic last forever.
