Last week we talked about one of the newest members of The Shoppes Family, Amber Kay with Amber Kay Photography, and now we want to talk about the fabulous Steffanie Atkins with Pretty in Ink Productions! Much like the creation of the Glam Squad, Steffanie’s production company started as a dream that she worked extremely hard to make a reality! After graduating from college most people decided to spend money on an extravagant trip, however when Steffanie graduated from VCU in the Fall of 2013 she spent money on film equipment.
It started with one camera, then two and a new computer, and now Steffanie has an entire arsenal of camera equipment under her belt. Just like my passion lies within hair and makeup and the empowerment of women, Steffanie’s passion surrounds filming and videos. But most of all she loves being able to use movement and motion to tell a story, and while photographs can tell stories, it is the sounds that videos produce that grow her passion every day.
Most people don’t think about hiring videographers when it comes to their wedding day, especially after they have hired a photographer- but there are a few reasons why having a videographer for your wedding is so special!
A very important one being the capturing of movement and sound that Steffanie had mentioned! Still photos provide a moment in time, and those singular moments are amazing, however wedding vides capture the movement and sound that a picture can not. You’ll be able to hear your fiance gasp as they see you walking down the aisle, the laughter during the best man’s speech during the reception, and the heartfelt vows that you and your loved one recite to one another. For that reason a wedding video can bring to the table something a singular photo will can not! And when you pair the photos from the day with the video you are left with memories that can be lived over and over.
What makes a wedding video truly special though is the emotion that is captured. A skilled videographer like Steffanie is able to edit those moments together in a way that provides you with not only footage of those moments but footage edited to make your special day into a magical movie and every time you watch the video you will be living your wedding day over again! And what makes it even better is that all the moments that you didn’t get to see during that day are available for you to experience as well.
But the best part about the wedding video? You can share it with the people who weren’t able to make it, and you can share it with the little ones that will join your family in the future.
