You all were so helpful with your photographer suggestions. We haven’t booked yet but we are in the process of meeting a few this week.
Now we need a videographer. I think I want super 8 in order to avoid the big light blinding guests on the dance floor but I’m pretty open to any type at this point.
So recs? If I can get away with doing this for less than 5K I’d be thrilled.

I had a great documentary videographer for my June 2008 wedding. $2K, he didn’t use Super 8, but I really don’t remember the light being annoying at any point. He is quite good at being unobtrusive, probably due to his background. The edited version is pretty simple, which is what we wanted – no cheesy effects, NO voiceovers, etc. And he is really nice, incredibly professional (showed up an hour early!) and I couldn’t be happier with the end product.
Given being a documentary guy is his main occupation and weddings are not seen favorably by his peers, he doesn’t advertise, just relies on word of mouth. PM me if you want his name and #!

I booked the videographer from Barnaby Draper Studios (his first name is Craig). And they have several different options, which also include Super 8. Just keep in mind that Super 8 will ALWAYS cost more. I don’t know any videographer that charges the same for Super 8 as s/he would for typical digital videography (even hi-def). They are unobstrusive and do not need to flash a crazy light b/c of the quality of their cameras. Plus, they’re amazing 🙂
