That does sound worth it me. The majority of brides I have heard from say that they love having a wedding video, even if it is raw footage.

Yes, having a videographer is TOTALLY worth it. I am so thankful we had one at our wedding.

i think its definitely worth it…..i would just make sure that he is still going to capture what he would capture if he were doing the editting himself….and not just end up say, standing in one corner with the video camera rolling….he is a professional so just make sure it is crystal clear what he will be capturing for that $500….

I am glad we did get a video.  We watched the edited version and then the raw footage.  It was nice to see everything that we missed on the day of.  However, I don’t think we watched it since the week we received it.  As for sharing with family, it’s s tough sell maknig them sit through 4 hours of uncut footage, the 3 minute highlight is really nice for sharing.

When I started wedding planning, I re-allocated videography budget to my photography because I figured I didn’t need videography. Well, a deal came up and we ultimately decided to get videography. It was a great idea because some of the photography didn’t quite capture the emotions of the day. Plus, it’s great to look back and literally relive the day. $500 is an awesome deal for all day coverage!! I say get it!!!

I absolutely must have a videographer, thats the only way you get to relive all the moments of the day. I wont pay anything extravagant for fancy editing and all the bells and whistles, but I dont a professional captured video of the whole day.

Do it.  NOT doing it is my biggest wedding regret.  We didn’t think we’d want one, but man, I wish we had one now!  It all goes so fast that some of it is still a blur!  And really it’s the only time some of these people will ever be in the same place, so it would be nice to have video of that. 

And not to be morbid, but my father passed away and I would LOVE to have more video of him so that I could see his face and hear his voice again.  So while you might not watch it alot, someday your kids will love to have it!

Yes, yes, and yes!  We’ve probably watched the video about 4-5 times since the big day and will most likely watch every year on our anniversary.  So much is captured on video that cameras cannot.

 I didn’t personally want a videographer until I talked to a couple, and this couple has been married about eight years, and they talked baout how their one wedding regret was not gettnig a videographer. if you can make it work in your budget go for it!

YES! Biggest wedding regret!! People kept telling me “youll never watch it” but now all I wish is that we had some live evidence of the day!
