Okay, I just booked who I believe to be the most expensive photographer in Philly, so now I have very little money to spend on videography. I got prices from VideoOne and DVideography – both are around $3,500 (they won’t offer me less expensive packages because of my wedding date, they must think I’m made of money).
Has anyone used or researched videographers in the Phila area that are under $1,000? I am desparate for recommendations especially since almost no one lists prices on their websites, so it takes so long to actually get a number.
Thanks, Bees!! 🙂

I am in Chicago but used Well Spun Weddings (http://www.wellspunweddings.com) which is based in Philly. They are not "cheap" but they are more affordable than a lot of other places, and we LOVE our video! I cry every time I watch it (in a good way!).

Craigslist!! I found videographers in LA charging $400 (and this isn’t exactly a cheap city). I don’t know how professional you want your video (maybe you could just pay for raw footage and then get it edited by someone pricier/more "experienced" when you have more money to spend again!), but I’m sort of questioning the value of the video at all so I plan to go cheap!!

I know a lot of Philly Knotties have used Martin’s Video, who I think are even less than $1,000, and loved them. I only ever looked on their site and some looked a little too weddingish for me.
Well Spun is $1,800 I believe for their cheapest package. My videographer Pete Malone of First Floor Films starts at about $1,500 with 2008 pricing. I don’t know the pricing for Ken Stillman but I’ve also heard good things about him as well. Good luck! Any questions feel free to PM me.
