    @Treejewel19: I went on to say that we’d found good videographers, so I’m not sure why you picked up on the only negative.

    I made sure to find some room in our budget with this. We deff splurged on photography, but I can’t imagine not being able to hear us say our vows or listen to our Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor read their speeches to us…. I want to be able to relive those moments…

    I am a huge fan of home movies though, so that might just be me. 🙂

    @pinkshoes: agreed! while i love seeing others’ videos (and Bakerella’s totally made me cry!) all i really wanted was basic footage… no crazy awesome cinematic masterpiece necessary (though if we had found a great deal i would have, i just couldn’t justify the cost to myself given what I spent on photography). so we had 3 videos, all on tripods at different angles with my cousin operating one of them to get the zooms and stuff like that. i’m in the process of piecing it together and it’s looking great!

    We are going to have a guest do the videotapeing, As long as I get the ceremony talking thats all that matters. Hopefully they don’t mind holding a camera for 10-15mins straight, or maybe I will get a tripod lol 🙂

    @Genuine513: DEFINITELY invest in a tripod! they’re really not even that expensive. or if you’re having a photographer, see if they can lend you one. your guest will be able to better enjoy the ceremony and there won’t be any shaking/operator noise!

    I didn’t think too much of getting a videographer…. I went for it because of the advice of everyone and I only paid $1300. Now that the wedding is over though I can’t WAIT to get the video back. I can relive my vows over again, I can hear my mom say how beautiful I was, watch my dad cry, listen to the messages from grandparents and wedding guests.

    Yeah I will invest in one for sure. We have one guest that hates being in front of a camera so she will have no problem being behind one 🙂

    We had a few guests film it.  Honestly, the only part that I really would love to watch again are the speeches.  Other than that, I’m happy just having the pictures.  I like the way I remember the day.

    @Tanya5484: I didnt want one…it was one of the first things i crossed off the “to do” list when planning. I ended up stumbling upon a guy trying to break into the videography biz and was willing to do a wedding for free…I emailed him right away and he did it!! I wouldnt have changed it for the world!! The video is amazing and i watch it tons..much much more then the pictures…video captures emotion that photos simply can not.
