Hmmm...

This is sort of a vent...sort of a question...sort of I dunno!


I really want to get a videographer. It's not about the money. I have somebody almost booked who is a friend's friend trying to expand his photography business. FI just "doesn't want one." His first concern is that he doesn't want a camera in his face all day. Ok, photogs and videogs are trained to stay out of the way and still get the shot. Then FI says he will be acting like an idiot, and doesn't want it on film. Um, what??!?! lol.


So my argument back to him was that I really want somebody to film the wedding. So either we pay somebody to shoot and then EDIT the "idiot" parts out, or I have a family member just shoot film of whatever and we get what we get-even the parts that we would have edited out.


UGh, we never really finished discussing it, so I dunno. This is something I really want and he obviously knows it. But I don't want to book it without having FIs approval...it's almost like we're at a stalemate. I can probably talk him into it but I'm surprised at how much he says he doesn't want one! WTH!? WHat should I do? lol

My DH HATES pictures, video, all of it.  I had like 4 pictures of him in the 6 years we were together before getting married (basically, I saved all the picture "requests" so I could have as many as I wanted for the wedding and I could say "I NEVER ask you to take a picture!" - it worked, I got over 1100 wedding pics and he didn't complain once ;))


I did not ask for a videographer, I knew I was getting all the pictures I wanted - my aunt did not know that we didn't have a videographer but brought her own equipment as she and my uncle do wedding videography on the side - she just wanted her own video.  She edited and made copies and even my DH says he's so happy we have it.


What is this friend-of-a-friend charging?

I'm sorry dear :( I do want to let you know DH was hesitant at first... but when I showed him our videographer's sample videos, he fell in love!! We now have our video back, and besides the photographer it's the best money we spent!! And, to be completely honest, I didn't even notice them. They did such a great job blending in with our photographers... All I remember is our photographers, not them LOL.

He would charge $500 for 5 hours of shooting and then all editing, and a copies of the dvd. We have enough extra money saved at this point to be fine with an extra 500.


The funny thing is, FI is not camera shy. We have a ton of pictures together! So I'm not sure why exactly he doesn't want one. *Shrug*

Has he ever seen one? I was talking to FI about one last night and he was thinking of 1980's style plinky-plonky music and soft focus and didn't want to have one but when I showed him the ones the ladies were posting the other day he completely changed his mind and has even asked a couple of ladies at work who they used!!
