We are using Ryan from http://www.djrt.com

He is young but just a great personality and I really like that you can order the stuff online.  Also he will meet with you and see if you’re a good fit, which is nice and he can download music on the spot at your reception if you have a request and he doesn’t have it, free of charge.

Prices start at $399 for the basic package.  My place is wired for sound too. We are paying around $700 for a 6 hour reception and 1/2 hour ceremony before that.

We’re using Sounds Unlimited, which I think had a package at about $800 for four hours. That was the rate we got when we booked last summer, it may be more now – though you still have a while before your wedding, so it is worth looking into whether they’d give you a discount as well.

I looked high and low for a videographer in the area that was up to the quality of production that we were interested in, and just didn’t find anything that satisfied me. I believe the best in the area is Edit 1 Media, so you might want to check them out though.

Has anyone shopped Edit1Media yet?  I am wondering what their price range is and I couldn’t find any info on their website.

@Miss Root Here is an excerpt from the email they sent in response to my inquiry last July:

After being in business for over 10 years, we realize that brides & grooms don’t fit in to “packages” so we do all custom pricing based on the needs of our clients. But to give you a general idea our prices range from $3000 to about $6000 or more depending on what options are needed. I am including a short questionnaire for you to complete (by clicking the link at the very bottom of this email) which will help us understand more about your wedding so we can create a custom proposal that will best fit your needs.

Good. Lord.  $3000 to $6000?  Well, that’s definitely not “in the budget”..  Looks like I’ll be hitting up my friend who’s trying to break into the videography business for a good deal.  🙂

Yeah…I have found that most videographers are really high priced. I never thought a video was in our budget…but then we came across Studio 517 and was shocked at what I could get for my money.

I would like to recomend the people we used. There were amazing. We jsut got back our video last month and I am blown away. If you go to thier blog…we are the “Laura & James” wedding.

We did the package that was origionally  priced at $999  (unsure of current prices)

That package gave us 6 hours of shooting with 2 cameras. We received a dvd that was about an hour long an also a “Wedding Highlights Video” which was like a music video of all our footage into 4 min. I was really impressed with these people can I cannot recomend the highly enough to anyone in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Not only was the footage they got great, but the editing was AMAZING. I am so happy with our wedding video

I will have to give Studio 517 a look as well.  I’m still debating over whether or not I really need to have the whole wedding on video or if I want just the ceremony… but then again, I love those video shots, especially of the groom when he sees the bride for the first time… I feel like even the most amazing photographer can’t capture that one film the way a video can.
