My FH and I have been going back and forth on a videographer for awhile now. First of all, we didn't want to spend the extra money because let's face it, videographers are expensive. We also weren't sure about it because we are afraid we'll spend the money and then only watch the video 2 or 3 times. My parents and his parents have said they have barely watched theirs but it is nice to have for us "kids" to watch. We have been considering it again though because several people have been telling us we don't want to miss out on that. I would kind of like to have it just to have to show our kids some day. With that being said, what are your thoughts on it and who do you recommend in Indiana? We live in Crawfordsville. We also would really not like to spend over $1000 if we don't have to...
I don’t have any specific recommendations in the area but I’ll tell you that I am SO glad we had a videographer. We originally decided against it but throughout our entire engagement I was honestly stressed and upset about it. Then 6 weeks before the wedding I couldn’t take it anymore and just booked one (thankfully he was still available). I’ve watched it a handful of times, I’m sure will be less and less as time goes by, but it’s honestly a priceless memory to have even if you do only watch it every few years. It captures your day and allows you to relive it in a way that photos just can’t.
I used wedding bug. I'm pretty sure they are all over the east coast. We are getting 6 hours of video, all the raw footage and a USB with a 5 minute highlight type clip of the day and spending about $1,100 with taxes included. I would look into them and all the reviews I have seen have been great!

Exactly, like you can always make more money but you’ll never get another chance to get a video of your wedding. I started freaking out and knew I’d be devastated if we didn’t get it so that’s why I hired one last minute... now having been married for... almost 8 months... I just feel totally relieved that we have our video, and honestly in disbelief at myself that we almost didn’t get one lol. I would be so upset without it. It was expensive, but that’s money that I haven’t regretted spending for a single second!
Once you book with them you can go onto the website with your online account and pick different videos and pictures that you like so they can get a feel of the styles that you like and they will pair with a videographer that specifically fits your style. I think you may be able to do that before you book with them too. I'm not sure. My FH uncle used to work with a lot of the guys that are with wedding bug in Jersey and he said it's great and I will be more than pleased.
