    I personally think a videographer is worth investing in. Although I’m sure some of my family and friends will have their cameras with them, I would like them to be able to enjoy my wedding and have fun without feeling obligated capture things on video. That’s why I wouldn’t mind paying someone I don’t know to do it. However, if you’re on a tight budget and are ok with your family/friends doing it, then it’s up to you. 🙂

    I had my BIL film our ceremony and the wedding highlights.  He didn’t mind, especially because his wife and kids were in the wedding.  Our video is fine, not professional quality by any means but I’ve watched it once.  It is nice to have that video and be able to watch it if I wanted to but I can’t imagine paying thousands for a video that I will watch less than 5 times in my life.

    If a videographer isn’t in budget, there are a few options you might look into.  One would be to post an ad online at Craigslist or somewhere similar to see if you can find someone starting out that needs to add to their portfolio that will do it for a very small amount.  Check with a local community college that has a video class and see if the instructor can recommend a student.  Or look into something like Wedit where you pay a small fee, get several small cameras for guests and they edit together a wedding video for you.
