It’s definitely not customary or required to use them from the same company. And it’s not weird to hire a photographer you love and a videographer you also love!

Most photographers and videographers are seperate and distinct businesses.  It’s sort of rare to find it all under one roof – and have it all be good.  We have a specific video guy we love to work with, but it’s definitely not uncommon for us to be working a videographer for the first time.

I would be more hesitant to use photo & video from one singular company. Photo and Video are so completely different. I agree with continuum, it is rare to find it all under one roof and it all be good. Likely they will specialize in one or the other, and the secondary they are offering for added business. I’d rather have two separate companies that each are amazing at their specific craft.

As a wedding photographer I can tell you that most companies do one or the other, not both.  Also, be sure both know about the other and are willing to work together.  There is nothing worse than having the videographer planted in the middle of half of the wedding events, as you jockey for a decent viewpoint.  I’m sure the videographer says the same thing about the photographer as well.  😉

@Fallicious1012:  Good video is just as much as good photography. Expect to spend equal what you are paying on photography, or more.  It really depends on what you value most where or not eliminating video should be considered.  Obviously as a photographer I think still images are more important, but good video can be pretty amazing too.
