Philadelphia Wedding Videographer : BG Productions Photography and Videography
As photographers we run into people thinking they can use our photographs without our permission. Or people who think that they shouldn’t have to pay for our services or our photographs. It can be frustrating, even infuriating at times, but in the end it’s something that all photographers face at one time or another.
As artists, we understand the importance of getting paid for your hard work and talents. After reading this article in Philadelphia Magazine about music licenses, and some careful consideration, we’re happy to announce that all wedding teasers produced by BG Productions will use licensed music or royalty free music! We’ve been getting around it by the excuse in the article, that we’re producing videos to be viewed only by our clients. But after reading the article we got to thinking about how it makes us feel when we do an image search and find our images being used without our permission – and we don’t want to be a part of doing that to musicians. We have always had royalty free music or bought a license for certain songs for our corporate videos. And now that our wedding videos are being shared around- we realized we have been in the Wrong!So lets get it Right now!
There are a lot of options for license free music these days and we plan to utilize these options which can really help new artists get their music out for people to hear. As always, we will continue to use the emotion from the day to dictate the music that we choose to go with your wedding video.
If you’re interested in adding video to your wedding day package shoot us an email! We’d love to tell you more about it! Also check out our blog series from last year about the importance of wedding videos: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
