We are looking at a videographer but havent decided if we can swing it because of our budget. the videographer we’d be using is the tpe that makes the wedding seem very high class and super professional and like a movie. he’s super good. this is what the cheapest package includes, we really can’t afford any higher than the cheapest package.
-seven to nine minute highlight of wedding day (what does that mean?)
-two camera coverage (1080 HP video)
-bride and groom getting ready
-highlight shots of ceremony
-highlihgt family and wedding party photos
exclusive bride and groom shoot
-highlights of reception
-wedding footage edited with music of choice
-three custom DVD’s and cases
you can add the complete ceremony coverage for an extra $200.
does this package include alot for the price? would what it includes be enough? being the cheapest package has me worried, but again, its all we can afford.
Opinions greatly appreciated!!!

Do they have example videos on their website? A highlight film shows small clips of the entire wedding day (getting ready, ceremony, reception) within 7-9 minues. The “wedding footage” sounds like a documentary film, which is longer and goes into more detail of the day.
For the price, I think you’re getting a good deal. I would ask them to send you an example highlight film and wedding footage so you know exactly what you’re buying. The only thing I would add is the additional ceremony coverage- out of everything, you’ll probably want to watch your vows again.

You need to ask how many actual edits you get. The word “highlight” usually means a short edited movie, a couple minutes long. It will not be chronological or include everything. It will just be the “highlights” of your day.
Since he uses this term over and over and over again, I’m confused how many edited videos you’re actually going to recieve. Is he just talking about what he’s willing to film and what he’s not? That’s weird.
And he should be including a full ceremony, basically edited, film anyway. That’s what you’re paying for when you buy videography!! You’re paying for them to capture your wedding day!

I’m also a bit confused about the “highlights” for the different portions of the wedding so I would get that clarified (will he cut out portions? Does that just mean they’ll edit it to get the two different camera angles?). That aside, I think that’s a good price for the package.
