Is it worth spending money on videographer? Did you watch your wedding video?

Eh, it really depends on people. We’re big on videos and have lots of random videos of ourselves at special events or trips. We watch them together often and laugh at our funny selves saying funny things. 

So it’s a no-brainer that we’d have a professional videographer and $2500 is worth it for us.

But if you’re not a fan of watching yourself or even looking at your own photos, then it’s a wad of cash down the drain.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am all for the videographer!

We were on the fence about it until one of my best friends told me not having one was the one big regret she had about her wedding. We decided to go for it and I’m SO happy we did. I do watch mine all the time, but even if I didn’t it would still be worth it because the day is SO busy and there were just so many things I missed. I LOVED seeing my friends and family break it down on the dance floor and their reactions to the ceremony. Our videographer also recorded all of our toasts which was so special for us. For me the joy of watching the videos is not watching myself get married, it’s watching all the little things I never got to see or forgot about 2 seconds after it happened because things were so crazy!

We are having one, but I went with a less expensive friend of a friend who does freelance cinematography. I figured we would regret not having some video documentation, but I didn’t want to spend a few thousand on it.
