Everyone says that your wedding day goes by in the blink of an eye. Photographers have become our second set of eyes for these special moments but there is a rising trend of hiring a videographer to film weddings! Videographers provide a different view of the day, their art captures actions and feelings through the emotional stories they tell through their lens. We have never seen a wedding day trailer that didn’t make us tear up, making it mission accomplished by the many videographers of the wedding world!
Blue Eyes Productions is a videography company based in Scottsdale, traveling country wide capturing love stories and special moments. We wanted to take some time to get to know the company and get an industry insight into the growing role of videography in the wedding world.

Owner Sarah Henry gave us some background on Blue Eyes Productions that she co-owns with her fiancé,
6 years ago my sister was getting married and I was helping her plan her wedding. During one of our conversations I asked her if she was going to hire a videographer and she said no because she already had a great photographer. I was shocked! I was currently finishing my Master’s Degree in Digital Cinema and spent years producing, shooting and editing videos, so I knew the value of videography. I reminded the soon-to-be bride that photographs weren’t going to capture her vows or the toasts, or even my inevitable tears throughout the day…which happened when she put on her dress, when I tried to give a speech in the limo and when my dad gave his toast at the reception! (I’m a sucker for weddings!) Finally, she agreed to let Kyle, my now fiancé, and I shoot and edit her video for her. To this day she still thanks us for capturing her wedding day and says it was the best gift anyone ever gave them! The excitement from her and her husband is the very reason we started shooting weddings and creating timeless memories for couples
What do people want to know about hiring a videographer:
A lot of couples want to know how the videography process works for the day. We work with couples to decide what is the most important events of the day for them and create packages based on that. We always tell couples that this is YOUR video, so we want it to be exactly what you want. If you want footage getting ready along with the sparkler exit from the reception, we will be there all day and capture everything in between. If you want a memory of your grandma on camera wishing you and your spouse a long and happy marriage, we can do that!
What can videography offer that photography cannot:
Photographers have always been one of the most important vendors you book for your wedding. However, videography offers something that photos can’t – the ability to relive every aspect of your wedding day, from the emotional vows from your spouse during the ceremony, to the toasts and first dance during the reception. These moments are a blur to a bride and groom the day of their wedding. Every event happens so fast and when you mix in the excitement and nerves, it’s easy to forget the special toast your dad gave you or the first words your mom said when you put on your dress. Unfortunately, these are memories a photographer just can’t capture. A wedding videographer captures those moments and allows you, your friends, family and future little ones the opportunity to relive your wedding day
