The cost for a high quality wedding videographer is not cheap because their time, talent, and technology are not cheap. So when you book him or her, expect to spend at least $1,000 - $2,000 on their services.
High quality wedding videographers book up quickly and there is quite a bit of paperwork and consultations involved once you do book one. This means you should book months to a year in advance.
Make sure that the wedding videographer's work is of a high quality. The sound should be clearly recorded and the video should be crisp, sharp, and colorful. There should be no excuses for sloppy work.

Wedding Videos shoots come in both packages as well and ala carte. You can opt for packages will only cover the wedding party and ceremony. Or you can pay more for coverage of the full day from the bride and groom preparing for their day to the final dance. Consider what you would like shot and what you think your ideal budget would be. If there are multiple events you want covered like the bride and groom wedding preparation, be sure to let the videographer know as they may need to hire a second shooter and add that to their proposal price.
