    Our photographer (who is a friend, but has a legit photography company) had his crew do video as well for $1200 on top of what we were already paying for pictures… It probably would have been around $2k if we weren’t getting the “friend” discount.

    I agree that if someone is in the wedding party it would be very difficult for them to do video.

    We got an awesome last-minute deal- $350 for 2 hours of coverage (basically just our ceremony, first dance and cake cutting), plus $175 for the high def raw footage on flash drive. So glad we got it- the day went by so fast, but now we have the video to watch and remind us of the day forever.

    We didn’t think about a videographer until a week before the wedding, so my wedding planner sent me my videographer’s info and there happened to be a “discount package for booking within 6 days of wedding”. We didn’t ask for a discount or shop around, so no idea what other companies do? It wasn’t as editorial/journalistically as I would have liked, but he was only filming for 2 hours so there was no getting ready, speeches, talking about how we met, dancing, etc etc etc in the video. But, it captured our ceremony and that’s what we wanted! We also got the raw footage so if we ever want to edit and make our own or have a different video made, we can!
