So, I am about to sign the contract for our wedding Videographer who is quite pricey (Venue Recommended). I was able to strike a deal to have one videographer for 6 hours and this includes an edited high-def DVD, two ceremony cameras, etc. However, I am wondering if one guy will be enough to cover the entire thing. I have had people (other videographers trying to sell me their packages) tell me that you should have more if your wedding is anything but an intimate gathering. I am thinking they just tell you this to get you to buy a more expensive package.
Does anyone have experience with one videographer and wedding of about 125, how did it work out? Do you feel like the day was completely captured?

We had one and everything was captured, he used those things that hold the camera for a few double shots of the ceremony and stuff. It all worked out beautifully.

depends if you are just looking for a wedding video or the new type of cinematography. i would suggest two camera folks though. we are doing the cinematographer and having 2-3 camera dudes. its a mini movie though… complete with trailer, sooooo might be a different style.
if they are experienced, they can have just one. it depends on the company!

Well, it sounds like he is going the two camera route, so he will be able to have a steady camera as well as a roving camera. I think one videographer is more than enough, you shouldn’t feel pressured into spending more money than you feel comfortable. And if you’re posting it on here, you probably already know the answer 🙂

- Wedding: June 2010 - New York Botanical Garden
We had 271 guests and 1 videographer – I haven’t seen the video yet, but they seemed confident that for that crowd, one was enough!
