@chrissyb464:  Have you considered maybe a graduate film student?

The highlight video should be priority over raw footage.  No one will ever sit there and watch 8 hours of video from your wedding. My sister was given raw footage, as well as a 45 minute video of the day. We have watched the video a few times but never the raw footage. 

Raw video footage = 3000 unedited photographs from your day!  The photo album is the main output I’m looking for from my photographer, the video equivalent of that for me would be the short edited film.  You’ll rarely look at the 3000 images on the CD from your day, but you will pick up the album on your coffee table.

@chrissyb464:  You can try searching on Yelp and looking at their websites. Darling Husband wanted Videographer and I didn’t and I didn’t budget for one. I ended up finding someone who was in the process of finishing his grad degree in filmmaking and was moonlighting as a wedding videographer on the weekends. We kept it under 1K in this case. 🙂

Go with the edited video.  You won’t want to watch the raw footage.  Raw footage is horrable and really boring. Think uncle Bob’s vacation video for 8 hours.  You will be much happier spending the money and getting the edited video.

You can always get that now and then hire someone to edit it for you after you’ve saved some more money. You could hire an art student to edit it with music and all that to your taste. Good luck!
