We’re doing both. Videography is something I’ve heard a lot of ppl regret not doing for their wedding.
Photographer only. Having a video is nice and if you can afford it then do both! We just can't justify the money spent on a video we'd watch maybe 3 times. Plus, we'll frame our photos and gift them to our family, which can be put on display. Can't really do that with a video unless you play it nonstop on the tv or something lol.
But if you can afford it and really want one, then do it!
I definitely recommend a photographer at minimum, and if it's in your budget, also a videographer!
We are going to do both. Originally, I had just planned on doing a photographer, but after hearing from so many ladies here on WW about how they regretted not having a videographer, we reconsidered and decided to hire a videographer as well. I think if it’s in your budget, it is well worth it!
We did both! Having a videographer will be like re-living those memories! And you can also gift the video to family members as well! I'm going to make DVDs and send them to our families that couldn't be there in person.
Having professional videography is a personal preference, but almost everyone these days has professional photography. We decided not to have a professional videographer (we didn't feel like it was necessary) so we spent our money on a top of the line photographer
If you can afford both, then do that. At the very least, get the best photographer you can because that is all you will have at the end of the day. Negotiate a deal with a videographer via Thumbtack.com or invest in a couple GoPro cameras tgat you can use for future events.
We're doing both. It's a lot of money, but it'll be worth it. I'm spending hours and hours a day researching the best videographer for me. I do get emotional watching wedding videos of random people! I think it something we'll watch over and over again, or at least once a year. It captures emotions that pictures won't. There are basic packages that include 3-6minutes of video --vow, speeches and dancing
We’re doing both! We struggled with deciding but figured I would rather have the video and only watch it a couple of times, than not have it and want to see it. In order to save some money we discussed with our videographer what was important to us to have forever in video and we were able to find a package that works for us! If you’re on a budget like us - just think about what means the most to you and talk about it with your vendor!
Multiple people have said they regret not having a videographer, so we will be having one. Honestly you can pay a random teen to pick up the video camera if you want. It's just having a way to rewatch the day, especially as you get older
