I paid for 10 hours of video and was told I would receive all the raw footage plus an edited 9 minute film. When I got all my original tapes, there was only 3 hours of footage on there, but they did get all the important parts. They also cut down the 3 hours into a one-hour raw DVD indexed by moment (cake cutting, vows etc.). I think they are there for the whole time but not filming for the whole time. So your package sounds similar to mine and I think you’ll be happy with it. I was extremely happy with what I got and I don’t miss the other 7 hours of raw footage.

I don’t remember…honestly we only watched the raw footage once, it wasn’t that interesting. But we watched the 9 minute video about a million times already (and that does include the processional, ceremony, and recessional).

i wouldn’t want to watch 10hrs of raw video of me haha. it doesn’t sound very entertaining. we’re getting a full days footage edited into a 15-20 cinematic highlight type clip and then just getting the straight-cut ceremony. 1hr of video is a lot and i wouldn’t expect, nor want that, from my videographers.

Ours is about two hours long. It includes a photographic montage of us growing up and our entire ceremony whch was a one hour full Catholic Mass.  Our highlights video is the length of one song, which is Come What May from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.
