@Miss Tattoo: What exactly are you looking for? I’m not sure I know the term. Do you want them to tell the story of your day ? I’m still looking to book someone to but I was leaning towards Big Day–idk they seemed to have the best look.

If you were talking about photogs I could give you a handful of names but I have no idea for video. I didnt even look into one based exactly on what you stated. Every memory I have of friends wedding vids is super crappy. It has turned me off to the idea completely.

 

Good luck in your search. What I would do is go onto modelmayhem and see if there are any on there.

@Miss Tattoo:I’ve been to every Pittsburgh videographers website and I am not impressed. I want an emotional piece…not a video that looks like it was shot by Uncle Bob.”

Translation: yinzers in jean cut off shorts and Donny Iris t-shirts that have one video camera they bought at best buy during football off season to start their video wedding business need not apply.

@Miss. Meeps: The fact that you said “yinzers” just made my day.

I’m sorry that you’re having such a hard time. Maybe try expanding a few hours outward? Maybe Philly would have someone great, or something. And if you find someone awesome, make sure to share with us, because videography/cinematography is really up there on my priority list!

I know several good cinematographers, but all are going to charge $5k+.

Try Moho Creative out of NYC; I know them from college and are excellent.

In Pittsburgh, for my own wedding, I used All Pro Video (Bob Hartnett). My video is excellent and I’d be happy to send you a clip if you want to see it, plus Bob is so nice!

Contact Lifestage Films out of Wilmington, NC. They are awesome, not sure where they fall in your budget though. But what a great group of people to work with and amazing results.
