Should you have a Wedding Video?

To have or not to have a wedding video.

I get asked this question often by couples who book me to take their wedding photos. Everyone is different. But let me ask you this? Will you regret not having one? That is the real question you need to ask yourself!


I myself was not that interested in a wedding video, but I knew I would one day regret it, so we had one, it wasn’t edited, no fancy highlights and special effects, just the coverage, as it happened on the day.
I loved it, it’s the real thing, its how the guests saw my wedding on the day.

Videography can be quite an expense so if you want all the bells and whistles, ie cinematic editing expect to pay on average $4000 to $6000 and sometimes more. This amount of money is not in everyone’s budget. If its not, consider engaging someone who can at least provide the raw unedited footage of your day, this will cost about half as much, and you will still come away with some fantastic memories. Remember your wedding day will go so fast, your vows will probably be a blur. Video is the perfect way to watch all those tiny little moments you missed on your special day.

A quote from a bride who wanted a video but the groom was not fussed, this is what she sent me after she watched her wedding video.
“Wow, I have to say I’m MOST pleased about the video, we barely new the videographer was there. I’m so happy I talked Greg into having it, we were able to recap so much of the ceremony that we truly missed, I think because we were so nervous and focussed on our vows. All those special moments, Greg got to see me at home before the wedding and I got to see him pacing nervously before the ceremony at the church. Thank you thank you thank you it’s just perfect!”  Angela Catlins.
