I don’t know exact price since we’re getting add ons but it’s going to be somewhere between $5-7k.  This includes editing and is in New England.

I went through a company called “The Pros” for my photography/DJ/videographer.  We are paying $4400 for everything, and it includes a 1/2 day second photographer.

@ladyhoneybee:  St. Louis, Mo. $7,000 (regularly $8,000, but discounted $1,000 because we are using them for our photography as well.) This includes: 2 videographers for the entire day, cinematic music video, full coverage Blu-Ray DVD set (7), and all the raw footage HDD. (mics, lighting, etc.) Hope this helps!

$1,800 but The company is owned by one of my bridesmaids parents who do it for a living,  So they’re  helping us out a lot in giving us a lot more than what we’re paying for. this Is in Hunterdon County New Jersey

I put a wanted ad on here and on Craigslist and a set of guys based on the east coast contacted us and said they would do our wedding in exchange for plane tickets to LA (basocially working on expanding their destination wedding portfolio). I checked their website to see their work and their reviews on wedding wire and loved everything they did so we created a contract and I started looking for tickets.

Tickets were looking to be about $600-$650 per ticket (NYC-LAX in Sept) and I was willing to pay that because even cheap videography is like $2500-$3k in our area BUT then I found this great Jet Blue deal and it was only $325 a ticket making the total $650 for both! They asked me to book them for a Monday-Monday so they could make sort of a vacation out of it and I was happy to because it was so afforable anyway!

I was a little nervous but made sure to keep in contact and everything went perfect! We got a highlight video a less than week later (https://vimeo.com/50395606) And we got an extended version of our vows and everything a few months after!

I was really pleased with their professionalism, equipment and editing skills.

I don’t think they’d be doing such a deal again but if you’re on a tight budget like I was, I would definitely recommend searching for recent graduates or trying to get someone to work with whatever budget you’re trying to keep to.

I had two options. I could either do multiple cameras for 2000 or do per camera per hour. I decided to do the per camera per hour. Since we only wanted the highlights, we did one camera. It is going to end up costing 1000 for four hours… The editing is included in my price

2k-2500-they’re a great deal. The starting price for other ones in the area was 2700.

None. My fiance and I think we’d never watch it and would be far more likely to look at the photos again and again, so we’re putting all that money into an amazing photographer.

$1650. I didnt want a videographer but Fiance did. Anyway, it includes: 2 videographers, 8 hrs, full editing, HD, 3 DVDs with custom cases, steadicam

Videography wasnt part of the original budget but it was the only thing my Fiance spoke up and said he wanted. They were very affordable bc he is just starting his own company after working for one for years.

my wedding is in NJ…about 15 miles from NYC
