Long story short, hiring a wedding videographer (or at least, the caliber of videographer that I would be willing to spend money on -- I won't spend money for it to be cheesy), is not in our wedding budget. To solve for this, my fiance and I decided we would buy a GoPro camera with the appropriate accessories and ask one of my coworkers to capture the day (I work in advertising so am fortunately surrounded by some pretty creative people). Our goal is to have candid, personalized footage of our day and a great camera to take on our honeymoon and future adventures afterward.
My concern is editing the footage afterward -- I may think that I'll have the time to tackle it right now, or find someone who can help, but I'm afraid it will fall by the wayside and never get done. Also, I'd love to not have to worry about whether everything is being captured. I'd trust a professional videographer to capture all of the right details, but not so sure about my coworker (or anyone else who isn't a pro).
Has anyone done something like this before? Would greatly appreciate any advice!
