Is there such a thing as a "cheap" videographer?

This is more of a want, not a need for our wedding.  All of the ones I'm finding just seem so high priced.  Any recommendations ladies?  If you have one, what do they include for a package?  Just a highlight dvd or a highlight and ceremony as well?

    We used "Complete Video" (associated with Complete Music) for our wedding because their videos on their website make me and my mom cry without even knowing the people getting married! LOL!  We liked that they gave my husband and mic which was directly hooked to the camera.  For JUST a ceremony video it was $400.  We upgraded and did the full day so we could get the first dances, toasts, interviews with people, etc - I think it was $850? 

    This was something that I knew I'd want because as the bride, you miss a lot.  You don't get to see your groom walk down, or any of the wedding party, since you're the last in (and first out!)  Looking at it now, we are both SO GLAD that we did the video. We haven't gotten it back yet, but they were very professional through the entire thing.  The owner is a little weird, but still very nice and good at what he does :)

  • I used www.studio-rewind.com Her name is Megan Owens. she was absolutely amazing!!!! It was the best decision that we made for our entire wedding, and I can't imagine not having a video to look back on now that we do! Her price was extremely reasonable as she just started out but I don't know if they have gone up yet. still worth looking into.She was there for the entire day and night! we absolutely love our video and have no regrets. You can check it out at her website.www.studio-rewind.com under "Megan and Andrew."

  • Oh and she included the entire ceremony with no editing as well
