To video, or not to video?

                                   To video, or not to video?

I have been thinking about whether to have a videographer at my wedding or not.

We have our photographer sorted but I am unsure about a videographer because of my budget.

We don’t want to go overboard with cost, so while I’d love to have a videograph document my big day. But I sometimes wonder if we will ever watch it.

Another part of me thinks it would be awesome to be able to sit down one day and relive my wedding day. A video is more interactive than a photo and much more emotional.

And how good would it be to watch it back with our children? Even Grandchildren?

Also, what if the whole day goes so quickly and I can’t remember anything? If I have a video, I can watch back on it.

Recently, I’ve seen a lot of videographers creating film clips to a couple’s favourite song. That interests me, too.

I’ve got lots of relatives who’ll be filming on the day, so that’s an option because I know of lots of videographers who will edit your own footage.

Hmmm, I don’t think I’m ready to make that decision yet.

I need to weigh up the pros and cons. Any feedback or thoughts?

    I’m in the same boat.. I would love to have our wedding day videoed but dont really have the budget for it. I’m not interested in the fancy editing and music background or anything like that. I would just like the ceremony taped but finding someone who’ll do that for under $1000 is impossible!!! What to do, what to do!

    I am the same. Wanted it taped. I have seen some beautiful clips and have found a reasonable videographer that whilst he may not have 2 camera operators and be a big flash company I had to decide on whether I wanted a basic affordable package and have the day captured than nothing as I wasn’t about to pay $2000. I’m lucky that ours is based in tassie and is about $1200. Most interstate operators only ask in additional their airfares so that would be maybe $200 both ways, accomodation so find a chea venue, another $100 so you could get someone for $1500.
