@julesSF:  Would this be in lieu of professional photography, or with professional photography?  If you don’t have a photographer and are only doing a video, I’d chose still photography over a video.

I’m not having a private ceremony but do you need 5 hours of video? Is the videographer flexible on the price as you may only need him/her for 30 minutes. I agree with sienna76 photography is more important.

I agree with @tcgstar:  in saying that I don’t think you need that much videography… maybe like 2 hours if you want getting ready & maybe a bit after… 

I LOVE my videography highlight and it was important to share with my DH’s family overseas so I would definitely make room for it in the budget because I think its something you’ll cherish.

There is so much emotion from the day that the photos just don’t bring… 

While we spent much more on the photos than the video, I much prefer watching the video because its live and real and music sets the tone and I just love it and so did our out of towners because it really does bring them to the day in a non-evasive way.

Biblove on here had a videographer and photographer for her elopement.  It was really sweet to watch them get ready and go about their day before the wedding.  I too considered it – but opted not to do it.  I love my photographs though!  I look at those daily, but I am not sure I’d look at a video daily.  If you’re only doing it FOR family to see something, then I’d probably decline getting it.
