Is it even possible to get a good videographer for less than $1000 for 8-hour coverage? I think I’ve checked out all of them. The ones that are under $1000 have editing and transitions that make the final edit look like a wedding from the 80s. But I guess you get what you pay for.
Part of me is like “The hell with video!!”. We didnt originally budget for video – it was low on our priority list, but now part of me doesnt want to regret not having video for moments I do want to relive, even if I wont watch it regularly.

My original budget was $1,000 as well and I found that it just wasn’t possible for the quality I wanted. I met with one up and coming girl based in the North Bay and while she was really sweet and competent, I just wasn’t impressed with the sample DVD she sent me home with. I also was nervous about the fact that she had no one to fall back on if she got sick or something else happened the day of and that she relied solely on the microphone attached to her camera rather than having microphones.
Ultimately, we ended up spending closer to $2,000 for 7 hours with one videographer but the company (Thomas Hughes Films out of Marin County) has multiple videographers so there was always a backup if needed. They also had microphones so there was no question whether they’d get the sound from the ceremony (the most important piece for me). I haven’t received our final product, but so far my experience with them has been great and I’m SO HAPPY we splurged. Our wedding was 3 weeks ago but I don’t remember lots of details and I am really excited to see the wedding from another perspective since the day was such a whirlwind for us.
