Cinematography is an art of making a video motion clip out of still images. It is equivalent to videography, but it is typically edited to add background music and unique styles. The result is an animated video clip of photographs. This method is unique in its own way and creates terrific experiences for events, such as weddings.
Cinematography maybe termed as a way of telling a story in motion photographs. This enables the editor to add various effects to the storyline as well as text to explain the happenings. As much as it may seem similar to standard videography, you will appreciate the fact that cinematography incorporates several aspects of filming which results in a custom and unique storyline for your event.

In a wedding scenario, the cinematographer may make a storyline of all events in summary for of the best moments ever. This storyline brings the event out lively to anyone who will be watching later in the sense that it incorporates relevant music background and text explaining the scenario after editing has been done. The wedding will always be live in the sense that anyone watching the produced storyline feels as if they are inside the moments due to the variation of the moods which are achieved by the lighting, music and angle changes of the photo.
