I didn’t have one but I wish we did…I watch wedding videos and it makes me sad we couldn’t afford it.

We had one and I’m glad we did. I’ve only seen some raw footage but I can tell it’s going to be an awesome video. I liked being able to see what the guys were up to while they were waiting for us.

I want one!! There is a company in Vancouver called Love Story Media.  Google it and get your tissues.  Not only to cry because its beautiful but also the price.  It starts at like $5000 :*( It’s just not in my budget.

We weren’t able to work professional videography into the budget, and I kind of regret it, but not really. If we’d had a couple extra thousand lying around, it would have been nice to splurge. But I’m happy that we have amazing photos and that we were able to get some film. Darling Husband bought an HD flipcam the morning of our wedding, and he just gave it to his stepbrother who filmed a ton of the wedding (ceremony, toasts, first dance, etc.). Even though the quality isn’t fantastic (it’s basically just a high-quality home video), more than anything, we just wanted those moments captured on video. So this was perfect for us and was a totally affordable option. 

On the plus side, one of my friends actually filmed a bunch of our reception on her iPhone and turned it into this amazing wedding video. She sent it to me after the wedding, and I was so surprised! I didn’t know she was doing anything this amazing for us, and I was thrilled when she sent me the video. 🙂

That really is the good thing, so many people have camera’s on everything now.  Photog is def my #1 becuase 20 yrs from now no one will care what they ate, saw, or did, they will want good photos.

@EKwedding: “20 yrs from now no one will care what they ate, saw, or did, they will want good photos”  I really have to disagree with this statement.  Video, however it’s captured, is more important than photos. My father passed away when I was a teenager and the only recording I have of him is a comment he made on my aunt’s wedding video.  My grandfather passed away the year after my wedding and seeing the footage of him dancing with me is priceless.  Whenever my husband and I go through a rough time or have an argument, it’s nice to go back to our video to watch our vows and first dance.  We see how happy and in love we were and hear the personal vows we said and how we said them and it makes the silly arguments pointless.  My photgraphs are lovely and I woudn’t give them up for anything, but my video (and my aunt’s) are my most cherished possessions.

@wifegoodman:  A Video is totally worth it.  You may think it’s expensive now, but in a few years, you’ll be so glad you have it when you want to look back.  There are so many videographers out there at so many price points.  It’s not impossible to find someone who does an amazing job that can fit into your budget. You just have to look for them. Hope this helps.
