Thats stinks! Videography is so expensive. Atleast you have something on video to watch though. I think it will be neat to go back and watch our wedding video (which I didnt originally even want.) Sorry that your video turned out that way though. I think I would be a little ticked but  **Its nice to know that the bride craziness does eventually wear off.**

That’s so upsetting! Thanks for sharing though, I know I’ll be sure to research in the future. I’ve very impressed by how well you’re handling it! I think I would loose my mind on someone! I hope you post some honest reviews around.

I agree to leaving a review, and I’d also leave one with the videographer (who needs to know what went very, very wrong) and the photographer (who recommended this dude and should know exactly what he’s recommending).

@meliss: If your photographer offered video as a side service, it is the photographers responsibily and their fault that the quality of your video is poor and they should be told that you’re unhappy. 

When my sister was looking for her vendors last year, she was offered a great deal for photo/video from a photographer she met at a bridal show.  Later when she met with her DJ, they suggested that she look for a separate vendor because of the way these package deals are generally done.  The DJ said that they outsource the video to someone else and in some instances, they don’t even know who the videograher will be when you sign your contract.  The DJ said to make sure you could see work by and actually meet the video person before she signed anything because that is the only way you can be sure of the quality you’ll get.  When she met with the photographer, they said they have samples, but she couldn’t meet with the videographer, so she walked away and looked for companies that did each service separately like her DJ suggested.  You have to be careful with the companies that offer one stop shopping.  Some are good and reputalbe, but most are just greedy and out for more money. 

If your photographer is reputalbe and takes responsibility for the work they are providing you, at the very least, they should offer to redo the video and take out the scenes that are blurry.  $1500 is not cheap for a video.  You should be happy with it.

If you can get the original unedited footage the company I work at can probably turn it into something you’ll enjoy.

Let me know and I can even provide a coupon.

Of course I’d try to get your money back, but be careful that you don’t end up with no footage.

I’m really sorry you’re dealing with this but yeah I agree just from watching the clip it’s like they were using a small hand video camera and a very unsteady hand.  Just seemed very shaky.

I do think you looked gorgeous and loved your husbands reaction to seeing you 🙂

Oh gosh, good for you reaching out to your photographer! I hope they can fix it or at least give you some kind of refund..
