Movie Memories: Why Video is the Best Way to Preserve Memories

There’s something about watching old family videos showing essential life events and memories of years gone by. Videos give you that nostalgic feeling and transport you back in time – like a lovely trip down memory lane. Here are some of the best moments to capture on video.

The Big Day

Record every single moment of that special day with stills and videos. Wedding videography packages come with different options, with basic inclusions like photo and video coverage on the day of the wedding. You can also have portions of the entire video stitched together to make a same-day edit that will show the highlights. Videographers usually have a team-up with photographers, so if you want full video and photo coverage, you can have both through the same supplier.

Snippets of a Beautiful Day

While the wedding is best left to the pros, recording snippets of a beautiful day is best done by you. These videos are more intimate and personal and can be documented using your handy camera phone. You can also stitch together short scenes and turn it into a mini-movie memory. Whether it’s documenting your solo travel, spending a day out with friends, going on a trip with the family, or capturing candid moments of your little ones, these videos will surely bring happy tears in your eyes and will never fail to make you say, “I remember that day.” And that’s just a lovely feeling.

Milestones

There’s something so wonderful about witnessing life’s different phases, from babyhood to adulthood. What better way to mark these big steps than by capturing moments in photos and videos? Photos can jog your memory and give you that feeling of excitement when you remember what was happening at that moment. Videos take you back, as if you were in that time and space again, watching the very same thing that happened years and years ago. You get to hear their voices and laughter once again. And if you aren’t convinced about the wonderful way videos can refresh your memory, perhaps the next one will.

The First 12 Months of Life

There’s nothing quite like the memories of the first 12 months of a child’s life. These long yet precious days go by so fast, they’re over before you realize it. Nothing is quite the same after the first year, which makes it so special and meaningful, especially when you see how quickly they’ve grown in such a short amount of time. Nothing compares to seeing that first gummy smile, hearing the sound of their first chuckle, and listening to them giggling and babbling. All their first and last times are preserved in videos that you can re-watch over and over again. And quite honestly, these are the best years of your life, too.

Photos and videos are your windows to the past. There’s nothing quite as touching and heartwarming to watch as the moving memories of happy days from years gone by. Keep everything worth remembering in stills and motion, so you’ll always have something to remind you of the most important moments of your life.
