wedding cinematography

I'm having a hard time deciding whether we should have a proper wedding cinematographer...they are costly! i'm talking 5K min. My fiancee thinks that's its just too much money spent in one area. But...:( feel like crying) have you guys seen those videos?! They are so touching and catch the moments so beautifully and are expertly filmed and edited. sigh..


Can someone talk me in or out of this ? lol. 


here's an example from one of my fav cinematographers here in Toronto.

Everything adds up doesn't it!? That was a beautiful video. This was an area that we weren't sure about either. I think having some sort of wedding video is SUPER important!! It tells so much more than the pics sometimes. Have you thought about finding a film student at a local university? Or having somebody that's handy with a camera film the day? (There are a lot of editing sites and software that are cheaper than hiring a videographer) You just need somebody that's saavy. I definitely would suggest having a videographer if you can find a way to work it into your budget

We found a photographer that we absolutely love. We are paying $3500 for photography/videography. This is one area we have agreed we want the best. This is a day you can never redo the same and to have pictures/video to remember that day to us is PRICELESS. You aren't the only one who cries at stuff like this. I'm a cry baby

see if this is an area you can splurge on and steal in other areas to save money. I think the idea of using a film student is brilliant!

Videography is the only area we splurged on! I think its totally worth it and I was determent to do a ton of DIYs so we can afford it.. 


It is expensive but we did a lot of reacerch and found one that ok is no cheap but at least is not totally out of reach. 


BTW I just HAD to shear the video that made me fall in love with videography in the first place. (Of course we could NOT afford this one.. but ow well..)
