Originally I was going to have my uncle film the ceremony, first dance & speeches. But then I saw films from professional videographers and loved it. I feel like there are pros & cons to each. Just curious what you all decided for your video. For those who had a family/friend film without editing, did you love your video? I can’t decide!!!

If you want something affordable but still with a professional touch I’m gonna use weddingmix videos – its an app that collects everyone’s photos and videos then editors create a wedding video from the scenes you like best.
I’m deciding between their summer promotion that gives a free short edited wedding video made from all the photos/videos http://www.storymixmedia.com/weddingmix/weddingmix-lite/
they also have packages that offer camera rental and longer videos so I’m still seeing how much of my budget I want to dedicate to video. ANyway my girlfriend used a medium sized weddingmix package for her wedding and her final video was seriously priceless!! Everyone caught so many hilarious mometns from throughout the entire day!!

grace14: Go with the professional videographer unless budgeting is a real big issue. Sticky situations can occur when asking a friend or family for a favor bec you cannot really “demand” (not sure if that’s the right word) and expect tons from them since they are guests too and they are just helping you out. While videographers, you are paying them so they have to deliver.

Totally agree – go professional. I’d consider terminating some of my vendors – who were truly the best! – to make videography happen again. And I was on the fence about hiring one to begin with. Now, my videographer is selecting his best to submit for an Icon Award, which he won for wedding videography in Colorado in 2015.
