Wedding Videos – A Guide to Wedding Videography


When planning a wedding, you will be required to make a plethora of decisions.  You will be forced to decide on the details of the ceremony, the décor, the music, the venue, the food, the clothing, the guest list, the favors, the cake, the budget, the photographer, the programs, the attendants, the honeymoon, the transportation and a host of others.  And all that aside, one of the big ticket items on the ‘to do’ list will likely be choosing the details of your videography.   

The advent of the home video camera has led to a boom in the popularity of capturing important events on film and what could be more important than your wedding day.  Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event and, as such, the wedding industry is booming with professional videographers. 

The two main focuses of a wedding video should be, of course, the ceremony and then the reception.  The exchange of vows is a must have for the video and most people desire shots of the attendants and guests.  Because weddings are often emotional, these shots prove to be priceless in the final product.  If your budget allows, you should consider hiring a professional videographer that’s will film all the aspects of your big day, from the rehearsal dinner to the reception. 

Wedding videographers range all over from amateur to professional and the decision of who to hire will depend largely on your budget.  If you wait too long to hire a videographers you may have to go with a beginner or an amateur.  So a good rule of thumb, when at all possible, is to choose early and choose a professional with a good report. 

Professional wedding videos can cost anywhere from five or six hundred to fifteen thousand dollars (depending on the complexity of the video) and while the general rule of thumb is to allocate five percent of your wedding budget to the video, many couples end up spending more along the lines of ten to fifteen percent for quality videography.  When budgeting for your video, you should concentrate on which details cost more and what factors, exactly, shape the price of a video. 


The wedding video is a wonderful way to ensure that all the events of your special day will live on forever.  Wedding videos are invaluable to couples because they are living photographs; they offer couples a constant reminder as to the love, the romance, and the excitement of the day.  Many couples find that viewing their wedding video will rekindle romance years down the road and, when looking even further into the future, their children and their grandchildren will enjoy being witness to the big day on which their loving family was founded.   

Most couples day find that opting for a wedding video is a decision that is never regretted and never goes unappreciated.  So remember, if you’re searching for a great way to capture the memories of your wedding day, videography is just the way to go!
