@mandb122: What’s the website?

Would it be possible to spruce up the video a bit on your own? You could probably just load it into iMovie and set it to music and whatnot! You could even mix in a few professional pictures!

@mandb122: Ooh… yeah. This sounds like it’s not the way to go.

Is it totally crazy how expensive videographers are?! Who knew!

I wouldn’t use him.  Rent a video camera and a tripod and ask a friend to man it during the ceremony.

Unfortunatly, in weddings and in any other creative indrustry, you get what you pay for. There may be a local film school or business starting out that can do a better job. If you budget is 1k you should be able to get a pro with pro gear for ceremony (depending on your region). If you already have video budgeted… keep on looking, beacuse there is a HUGE diffrence between a real pros video and your friend getting “stuck” with the job on your wedding day.  Look for videogs who are appart of a local association.

Good Luck!

I wouldn’t pay them if you’re not going to be happy.  don’t hire someone who you know will do a crappy job.  Put out a craigslist help – sounds like you can get a student to do a better job!

like other said – what about having it all just raw filmed and put some of it together yourself?  I learned imovie real quick!

also – what about talking to the videography company?  Telling them you’d like an edited video higher quality/different than the sample.  It can’t hurt to ask them if they do other work!  The worst they can say is thats their best stuff!
