It seems that there are so many wedding photographers offering contests for free wedding photography, but I haven’t seen anything similar for wedding videography. We’re on a budget and can’t afford a videographer, so I would love to enter a contest for videography. Does anybody know of any videographers who are doing contests?

I don’ t know of any, but we are purchasing a video camera and a tripod and having my brother video the ceremony. I figure it is a better use of our money b/c we get the video camera and it gives my brother a way to participate. Also, every married couple I know says they only watch their wedding video on their anniversary, and most say they wish they hadn’t spent the money they spent on videography.

I would try craigslist for anyone just starting their business out or looking to build their portfolio. My FI and I got lucky and came across someone doing exactly that and was only charging $400 for the full day and edited final DVD. We were going not have a videographer until we found his posting on CL.
I belive when we met with him he said his promotion of building his portfolio was fulfilled, but he didn’t sound like his packages would be that expensive. If you’re located in Northern California PM and I’ll give you his information. He may have referral prices, I’m not sure.
