Wedding Video and Cinema
Wedding videography is something that I've had a lot more interest in over the last few years. The trouble I hear about however, is that videography can cost so dang much! I get it. Good wedding video coverage, like photography, doesn't come cheap. You've gotta pay for another wedding professional to come out and cover your day. That's where I came up with the idea, or adding video coverage to my existing photography coverage.
We do this one of two ways.
Option 1 - I shoot it $750-1000
1. I shoot the photos and the video myself, or with a second shooter. Photos are the primary concern. And we will not compromise the quality of your precious wedding photos, video plays second fiddle. That said however, we still do a great job. This is a way primarily to keep costs down. We want something impactful, that you'll be happy to remember your big day with, and share with your friends. But shooting and editing time are kept smaller, to save on costs.
Option 2 - Dedicated shooter $1500 plus travel costs
2. So the other option is that I can bring along my dedicated video shooter. He's an accomplished wedding film maker, whom I have worked with over the past couple years. He didn't come from a wedding video background, but was really good at other video styles. I trained him up on the wedding side, and now we collaborate to really put something special together.
Here are some quick examples of a few couples videos, and which option they chose.
Molly and Ian, Option 2, $1500
There were also some travel costs involved here. But all together, we came in under cost compared to some other options that they were looking at. Super fun day! Great couple, a neato old car, and lots of time for photos made the images and video really something special.
Minka and Jorge, Option 2, $1500
Shot in early September, Minka & Jorge's wedding was a beautiful day. Their venue Spencer's At The Waterfront in Burlington was breathtaking with its amazing views throughout the entire evening.
Rachel and Peter, Option 1, $1000
A cool wedding shot at her parent's getaway motel. It rained half the day, but it didn't put a damper on the fun we had!! Shot solo. Just me.
Matt and Melissa, Option 1, $1000
A fun and energetic local wedding here in Stratford. Some crazy dancing!! So much fun.
