Hi, I'm Kristin.


Hiring a wedding content creator is an increasingly popular way to document candid moments on a wedding day. A content creator’s job is to take photos and videos on a phone camera throughout your wedding day. Then they send the raw footage of your special day over within 24 hours for you to share, post, and relive precious moments! If you are considering hiring a wedding content creator, here’s a few things you should know:

What Does a Content Creator Do?

A wedding content creator can play an important role in capturing and preserving the special moments of your big day. Their services include photography, videography, or a combination of both. Unlike a traditional photographer or videographer, a content creator captures special moments on their phone camera. They will take photos throughout the day just like a photographer does, but they will focus more on the candid moments—the moments you want to see footage of as soon as possible! Depending on your vision for your wedding day, you can have a content creator focus on taking unposed photos of the two of you and the wedding party, family members enjoying the day, or guests getting down on the dancefloor. They can take the photos you wish you had the time to take! Then you will receive a full gallery of unedited media the very next day so you can see the moments you can’t wait to relive and the ones you didn’t even see happen right away.

How Much Does a Wedding Content Creator Cost?

One of the first things you might wonder is, “How much will it cost?” The answer depends on several factors. For example, what is the scope of the services they offer? How many hours of coverage will they provide, and how many images and videos can you expect? Pricing also depends on how experienced the content creator is. On average, wedding content creators may charge anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Content creation is also a newer service, so there may not be many service providers in your local area yet. The price will change depending on the location of your wedding. It is a good idea to inquire about content creation with your wedding photographer to see if they offer this as an add-on to their services. We’ve recently added this service to our services at Lively Photography! It has been such a fun way for couples to get natural sneak peeks of their wedding day right away.

Should We Hire a Wedding Content Creator?

Whether to hire a wedding content creator depends on your priorities, budget, and vision for your wedding day. While some couples may choose to rely on friends and family to capture candid photos and videos, hiring a professional content creator ensures that you receive all of the high-quality images and videos to document your day accurately. You will also be sure to receive images within 24 hours! You won’t have to chase down photos from multiple people or wait for friends to send photos your way just after your wedding. Additionally, having a dedicated content creator allows you and your loved ones to fully immerse yourselves in the celebration without worrying about capturing every moment.

Reasons We Recommend Hiring a Content Creator

Hiring a professional wedding content creator offers numerous benefits that elevate the quality and experience of documenting your special day. Here are a few reasons why hiring a wedding day content creator is worth considering. A content creator offers a creative vision and style. They bring expertise to the table to ensure your content is high quality and beautiful! A content creator is also dedicated and focused on taking photos and videos. While guests may get busy enjoying the festivities and forget to capture moments, a content creator will ensure no moment is missed. You and your loved ones can enjoy the day knowing your memories are in good hands! In summary, your guests and loved ones will surely enjoy taking fun photos and videos on your wedding day. But hiring a professional content creator ensures that your wedding memories are captured in a way that is visually stunning, emotionally resonant, and cherished for years to come.
