As anyone knows weddings are a joyous occasion. One in which people come together to celebrate a happy occasion between two people. Unfortunately, weddings can also be quite expensive when it comes to things such as catering, invitations, decorations, and of course the one thing all brides want—wedding videos. Wedding videos are a great way to keep a memento of a bride and grooms wedding day and captures it in a way that can watch any time and share with others. However, just like photographers, if you’re planning to hire a professional to capture those happy moments it can wind up being pretty costly.
Just as when you hire someone to take photographs during your wedding, there are many options available for wedding videos. While those costs can add up rather fast here are a few tips that may help save you some money while staying within your budget.
Montage: While family members are eager to share this occasion with you and would love to have a few photographs (or video) to keep around you really want to skip out on this. It’s not unusual for couples to want to include cutesy photos from the time they were infants, to childhood, adolescence, to their beautiful moment. Chances are your families and friends aren’t going to be interested in these photos as they will the big day.
DVD: Either video’s or DVD’s are a great idea. They generally aren’t too pricey and you can make copies for fairly cheap and share with your loved ones.
Dressing up: While some photographers and video photographers alike will capture those moments before the wedding, some may not enjoy this attention. It can be equally for bridge and groom when they are gearing up for their big day and the undesired attention can quickly spoil an already stressful moment.
The Ceremony: As obvious as it make seem, we still want to point out this needs to be you’re main focus. After all, the guests came to see the bridge and groom marry so you want to capture the moments from the groom waiting at the altar, the bridge being given away and the actual ceremony.
Guests: While it’s a great idea to include you’re guests you don’t want to spend time allowing them to talk to the camera. While it’s nice to hear so many wishing you well and the best of luck in your new life, a few hours of this and it’s bound to get a bit tedious.
The Reception: The reception is a great thing to include in any wedding video. Not only does it capture those special moments like the first dance, but it also catches the guests celebrating your happy day.
Two videographers: Some people like to include a second videographer in their weddings. While this may include more photo’s you are also going to wind up with a lot of the same footage as well as a videographer videotaping another videographer. .

Now let’s talk about pricing and ideas. As mentioned before, there are often various packages available that can suit your budget and give you the coverage that you want. It often depends on both the company that you go for, the length of time the person is hired for and what exactly you are buying. A basic videographer is going to cost you between at least five hundred to a little over a thousand. Usually these are just people who film weddings for extra spending money and as a hobby instead of a full time, professional job. While it may save you money, you may not wind up with the best quality video footage of your wedding.
Most professional videographers charge two or three thousand. These types of professionals usually have been working weddings for some time and can provide you quality footage of your wedding. While it may be a bit more costly, it’s certainly worth it. If you have the extra money to spend a bit more and a budget isn’t necessarily an option then you can look in to a bit more of a creative videographer which will cost around three to seven thousand dollars. While they can show your wedding through a whole new perspective, sometimes their ideas and that of your other vendors may not always correlate in a pleasant way. In this case just keep in mind that quality and quantity are going to play a large role in this.
You basically get what you pay for and so if you want high class footage of your wedding you will be forced to pay a little bit more. If you are more concerned with having fun over the quality of the wedding then hiring someone who views it as a hobby over being a job is the best way to go. Ideally, you can always hire a friend or a loved one as well if you’re looking to cut some corners on a budget.
Tell your story: A great idea for your wedding for your guests is to tell your story. Have fun, go back to locations where you may have went on dates or the spot where he proposed. Putting together a small mini film where you can be interviewed and have a little fun can be a nice token for people to take home.
Project at the reception: Whether you choose to send copies to your guests or not is up to you. During the reception it can be a good idea to have your videographer hook up their camera to a big screen and allow you and your guests to watch high-lights from the day. Likewise, the same can be done with guests who bring a camera with them and make take their own videos.
The ways in which you can hire a photographer are endless as are your choices. Most videographers often have online websites where you can view their work, view bundles and see what fits to your budget and needs. .
