Videographer Recommendations

Hi can anyone recommend a good videographer? It hasn't been a priority in my wedding planning. But I've decided now that I want one. However, my budget for it is relatively small ~$1,000


Thanks!

I just did my research on videographers so I have a bunch of recommendations.  For that budget its gonna be hard but I noticed most videographers have associate packages.  Also I found out lot of the better videographers are from So Cal and they were much cheaper than the ones up here.


The only one that would possibly be in your budget is below.  They are an up and coming husband and wife team.  They just did m4rcla's wedding today and will have the video posted tomorrow.

If you can budge a little more, let me know and I'll give you more recommendations.

wow I'm really impressed with capture me- especially if it's for around $1000. That's so hard to find!


I know of some cheap videographers that would do a video/editing for a full day for around $500. But they editing is cheesy. If you really want their info I can get it for you. Otherwise I'd go with the one rkrupan suggested

Yeah I'm really happy with the love story video that capturemevideography did. I'm still waiting for the wedding video but I'm sure it'll turn out great!


They are an up and coming husband/wife team so the price is still great right now since they are just starting, but they are very talented and I LOVE their cinematography style.

I'm impressed with capturemevideography. I'd like to have them for my wedding too, but they don't do Sunday weddings.  Mine is on Sunday. Recommendation on others around the same price range?  I don't mind ~$500 ones either; I'm sure they will still be better than home made.

Hi


I know someone that does videography but Im not sure if he is in your budget. However he will def know people who are.


you can email him and let him know your details (time, location, edited, raw footage) and who knows....he may be able to work something out for you. I already told him that you were looking for a videographer so tell him "Liesel" told you about him. He wanted more details like amount of time etc. which i didnt know. Hope he can help!

depends on what your budget is.  i got quotes from $1500 to over $5000.  i ended up booking fantasy sound event services b/c they gave me $500 off for booking the videographer and dj with them.

We used Silasbarker.com.  He was awesome!  Less than $800 for the entire day and we loved our video.  The nicest guy too!

FYI: Alaina at capture me Vid. is going into maternity leave for at least the month of August.  She's expecting her 2nd child around mid-month for any bride who is interested.


I just did my consult with them and booked them on the spot.  They are a lovely couple, talented (from what I can see), resonable, and professional.  They only take the jobs if they are able to accomadate. 


My wedding is around 16 hour long and we worked out a great package with 3 videographer so they can do small jobs as well as large jobs.  Although they work as a husband and wife team they do have a 3rd member who they can bring on. 


Their prices are very reasonbale as Marcela said as they are just starting out, but they have done 4 weddings and are booked for 5 more including mine this fall.  Their prices range from $1000-$3000 with most 9 hour package falling in the $1800 range for highlight video and 30-45 minute feature film.

I ended up finding someone wonderful to do our videography and Same Day Edit video. If you are interested take a look at our Same Day Edit posted on YouTube (link below).


Feel free to PM me for more information. Videography was something I thought day in and day out about before the wedding. I'm so glad we decided to hire someone great to do it. I've watched our Same Day Edit about 30 times!


Prices are also very reasonable as Simon Wong is just starting but the guy is seriously talented and good at what he does.

Simon Wong my Videographer just launched his website. www.blissfulpixel.com He will definitely do videography for less than $1K. He's building his portfolio so his rates are negotiable. You can also email him at simonwong@blissfulpixel.com

This is Simon Wong here of blissfulpixel! Thanks very much to Twiggy987 and Tomileen! I had a great time working with these two wonderful brides last year, and I'm only now getting around to posting back here at PW.


I have done very little advertising at all - and I was completely blown away by the number of folks who found out about me through the posts above. 


As of way of expressing my gratitude back to the PW community, and because I am expanding my photography portfolio, I'm offering free, complimentary engagement shoots to celebrate Spring! That's right! No obligation! 


In addition I'm offering great discounts on my standard videography rate. 


To find out more about either of these promotions, just drop me an email at simonwong@blissfulpixel.com!


Hope to hear from you, and happy spring!


 


Simon

I have done quite a bit of research myself and I'm in your same boat Twiggy. 


Try www.http://grapevideo.com/ or http://www.passionartphotography.com/ 


They are both Bay Area based and have several different packages and can customize any package for your budget.
