When it comes to time to think about “wedding day memories”, most people turn to photographers to capture their special day. But have you considered a wedding video?

Wedding videos capture all the subtleties and nuances that you may have missed during your special day.  Wouldn’t you just love seeing your husband or wife prepping for the big day with their friends? Capturing their every beautiful movement; the melodious tones of excitement in anticipation of walking down the aisle – who would want to miss that?

We wanted you to hear it from the dream makers themselves, so we called up nine of Toronto’s top videographers to compile this amazing list for you. All the videographers have included a sample of their work, so kick back with your sweetheart, read up on each videographer’s style, and take a watch.  Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments section!
