Has anyone used Wedding Bug for videography

So at the last minute, after seeing so many posts on here about people regretting not get a videographer and watching so many wedding videos online, I decided I want a videographer. I found a great deal through wedding bug but it makes me a little nervous that the price is so good. I have found other videographers with similar prices, but I didn't like their work as much. I just feel like the quality and price don't match and I'm afraid the video I get back will look nothing like the samples they have. They have a bunch of bad reviews on here, but they also have a lot of good ones. If anyone has used them I would love to hear your experience!!

    I booked them for my photography. I originally told them I was booking with another company and they were willing to price match. I think maybe because they are so big they can afford to be affordable.

    I'm assuming (and I could be wrong) that like most agencies, they book you and then they send someone. Anyone they have available. It really is a crapshoot.

    This is why I only recommend owner-operators.

    They quoted me ~$1250. I had a few other vendors quote me similar prices but I really didn't like their work. I like the work of people who cost upwards of $3,000 But I just can't get myself to spend that much. If I don't find someone in my price range i like I may just skip it =/

    Another generic company that uses subcontracted photographers. Meh. If you only care about getting photos in any capacity and getting seemingly more for less, they're for that. Otherwise, hire an independent provider who fits what you want. Good photography costs for a reason....not the place to be short sighted for the sake of pride.

    Usually if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    You should look into George street! We picked our photographer and they're sending us a videographer for under 4,000. The videography is about 12-hundred

    I know I'd hire a tuxedo company to do my photography or video. Nope.

    Since I'm a video editor and know how to edit, personally-it just doesn't seem worth it to me to pay someone a bunch of money for a product I know how to produce and produce well.

    DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE! STOLE OUR MONEY! unauthorized took money from my account without ever notifying me. They refused to give me my money back, did not give me the photographers info until 10 days prior to the wedding. forged my signature on the contract. I will be seeing these people in court. A wedding is supposed to be a happy event and these people are not professional, and liars.

    Absolutely HORRIBLE, the raw footage I received not only missed the BRIDE entrance it missed the GROOM as well. My husband and I were SHOCKED! we paid money for such a horrible quality video. Everything was dark and cut off, we were wondering why our short film was the way it was (weird shots) and now we know why because they had barely anything good to work with. I will NOT recommend, in fact I will go out of my way to let people know not to book with wedding bug, This is absolutely ridiculous.
