I’ve already PMed you in response to another thread, but I’m going to answer here for other people as well.  I only looked at about 4 different videography companies (all “artistic” who do the cinematic shots, highlights or movies).  There was only one that had packages that started below $4000, but that one has since raised their prices to match the others in their industry.  So, depending on what package you decide on, I would say prices can range from $4000-8000.  I believe all or almost all companies come with a “documentary” edit though, which is like your ceremony, cake cutting, first dance, etc., with no editing, just the recording.  If this is too much for you, try looking at the lesser known videography companies, or those that are just starting out.  You might be able to find some with a quality of work that is just as good, but because they don’t have as well known a “brand name” as the studios that have been around longer, they may have more deals or be cheaper.

I didn’t speak directly with I Do Films, but I did contact them, and I would say they seemed the most professional (had me submit my budget, sent me a webpage of pricing instead of emailing me directly.. could be a pro or a con), I liked their sample videos the most, but they were also the most expensive.  I would recommend looking for their reviews (and other videographers’) on weddingwire and yelp etc.; sometimes people link their video so you will be able to see an example of a “real” video and not just a handpicked example of the company’s bestest best work.

Good luck on your search!!

I would recommend Orange Wedding Films.  JJ and his team are exceptionally professional and warm.  They are in the same price range as I Do.
