I don’t know whether or not this issue has been addressed, but I’m going to whip out my questions anyway. I think it would be a really cool experience to have videography incorporated at my wedding, but I don’t want it to break the bank. I saw some instances of DIY videos that were through the guests perspective and I thought it was an awesome idea. However, I want a reliable, good company that I can send my videos too, to make the video worth while. I understand the quality won’t be fantastic, but to me, I just want to see how fun the night is from friends and family. That doesn’t mean I want it to be terrible and not worth the money. Any suggestions if any of you have done this? If you have did you like it? Why or why not? Which companies were the best?
Thanks in advance!

- Wedding: September 2014 - Waldorf Astoria, Chicago
aubrizzle34: What a good idea, I never thought about collecting videos from my guests to send somewhere to be edited into a movie. The only issue I can see with asking guests to record the ceremony is that they might get in the way of your photographers…
We didn’t want to hire a videographer, but we have a friend who does work with videos, and we’ve asked him to set up a camera off to the side of the ceremony that will be out of our photographers way to get a video of the ceremony. It won’t be perfect, but I figure it’s better then not having one, and the photos are much more important to me!!

You can definitely ask guests to send you video footage that they filmed at the wedding (everyone has smartphones and fancy cameras that shoot high-quality footage these days), and then ask someone who is good at it to edit it all together. 🙂 Crowdsource it!
