Reception Same Day Edit

Some videographers and wedding photographers offer a "same day edit" service.

With a same-day edit, wedding video or wedding photographs from the wedding day are shown during the reception. Although same-day edits sound great, I can't recommend them.

First, with a same day edit you'll spend your reception viewing what you just experienced instead of spending quality time with friends and family.

Second, the same-day edit was invented as a photographer and videographer sales tool. They realized that if they shared their photographs or video at your reception, they could impress guests and garner new business.

In other words, engaged reception guests and guest who knew someone getting would ask for videographer or photographer business cards.

Personally, I'd feel uncomfortable taking advantage of your reception celebration, and that's why I recommend against this service—even if it's offered at no charge.
