Is there anyone that can recommend a good, but affordable videographer in the chicago land area? We just decided that this is something that we might be interested in doing, but they are just so expensive. I have no idea where to start.

What is your budget?? Out of the videographers I looked at, Sterling Wedding Cinema ( http://www.sterlingweddingcinema.com/ ) was the most affordable while still at a high quality (although we didn’t choose them in the end.. and I see from their menu page that their prices went up >_<). However, they’re still going to be expensive for budget brides. We also looked at I Do Films and Blu Couture (we went with them!!), both amazing hq Chicago videographers but both also more expensive than SWC.
If those are outside of your budget, I would recommend going through reviews on WB, Wedding Wire, The Knot, etc., and finding some videographers with example videos that you like and checking out their prices. Also, if you already have your photographer, try emailing them and asking about any videographers they’ve worked with or recommend.

@elysion: Can you tell me how much the packages are for Blu Couture or I Do? I am looking into them both! Thanks.

We used Loudbyte Cinematography. They were reasonably priced when we booked them 2 years ago. I’m not sure how their prices are now. We did receive so many compliments on our video. My husband and I love it! It is a beautiful piece of art. We also looked into Orange films, but they were already booked. Good luck!

Congrats on the wedding! My friend is a photographer and she just told me about this site:
They will find local photographers for you who pitch for your business. Apparently it’s great if you’re on a budget.

I’m also debating on doing this I know I want video but I’m thinking of maybe just asking someone to videotape for us I really just want to have the footage of the ceremony and the basic stuff at dinner… first dance, speeches etc…

We were on the fence about having a videographer up until the very end. We were very hesitant because of price but looking back we are SO HAPPY we decided to “splurge” we went with Leap Weddings and recommend them to everyone, they were amazing! http://vimeo.com/4567915yo good luck with your decision!
