    I used Alvin Shen and he did an AWESOME job for our wedding. Like you, most of my family was overseas so I needed to get a video of our wedding done. In retrospect, I regret not having him film our reception. I found him on Yelp and highly recommend him! 🙂

    I’m using Lightbulb Videography for my wedding.  You should check out their past work online!  They are based in the southbay, but work all over.

    For what you’re looking for, you will likely end up paying $4k or more (depending on the package you chose of course..i imagine for a 2 day event, you are looking at paying a pretty good amount).  I looked around and for a 10+ hour day, we found that most of the quotes (with the same day edit) came in to $4k (we’re in socal).  We ended up going with a group of guys who wanted to market to weddings, so we got a great deal that way…and they’re willing to come the day before to film the preparations too without charging us for it.

    1500 is usually the lowest a company will go, and many in the area don’t go below 2k

    Mine is below 2k because I chose an amateur.

     

    There are a lot of EXCELLENT packages out there for 4-6k.

    I went with Graham from Final Frame Studio (www.finalframe.com) and he did a WONDERFUL job. I purchased the 12-hour day + raw footage + Same-Day-Edit and it was all under $2K. Oh yeah… my wedding was a 2 day affair and he charged by the hour for our tea ceremony. His prices have increased since we booked him, but still affordable.

    Here was our same day edit. http://vimeo.com/25533394
