My future husband had a bright idea of hiring 2 people (like task rabbit) and rent the video equipment. After the wedding he would send the footage in to get edited into a movie. He estimates this idea to cost $350 for two videographers + $300 for Video Camera equipment + $500 for editing. Has anyone tried something similar to this? Hiring a videographer and a photographer for around $4K+ is not in the budget. Can you suggest some alternatives?

Is there a local film school or a college with a film major around you? You could post some flyer ads. That might get you some better footage than a random.

On a budget, I am all for students.
I *think* I got crazy lucky… Wedding is in 2 weeks, so we will see. We found a new start up to work with. They are just getting into,weddings this year. I got a great deal- $500 for a guaranteed hour and a half video– 2 shooters, all rights, all raw footage- payment after delivery. They showed us a couple other videos they did- really good.

You could try looking on craigslist. I found a really great videographer for $600 which is insanely cheap in my area.

We had a cousin with our action cam. He does action cam a bit, so moved about for the different angles. We got thus All raw footage, so we can cut what we like. Free.

lucyspnz: My fiance and I were facing the same dilemma, but then we found WeddingMix! They provide videography service through an app that your wedding guests can download on their phones and upload videos and pictures throughout the event. It’s infinitely cheaper, too; their packages start at $99 for the app service, and they give you the option of adding some HD cameras, as well. They will also compile a video for you after the event. Overall, we’ve been very pleased with their service and customer support; definitely look into it!
