Just wondering if you think professional Photography is all you need? How important is it to get a video of the wedding as well?
Thanks for your opinion,

All I wanted was a keepsake, it wasn't important to have a really schmick wedding video. I'm really happy with it.

I was wondering the same thing about 6 months ago when I was looking into photographers/videographers. Alot of people have mixed opinions about it, but TBH, I have never spoken to anyone who got a video & regretted it. The only ppl who have told me that it was a "waste of money" were the ones who didn't get one - so they couldn't really compare. In the end, we decided that we would always regret NOT having one. We decided to save money by not hiring wedding cars & just borrowing nice cars from ppl we know and we put that money towards the video...
I also thought about getting my own video camera and getting someone we knew to record it for us.. but there was no one really who we could ask, that I wouldn't feel bad about making them see our wedding through a lense!

Many people will tell you that it's worth it as it captures moments they missed at the wedding or helps them relive the day. I think if it's well done and of good quality, chances are you won't regret it.
Do I think it's a waste of money? Only if it's poor quality. Do I think it is necessary? No.

I hired a videocamera and tripod, and my nephews (aged 18 and 16) recorded the ceremony and reception. They took their task very seriously, and had carefully planned what they wanted to do re camera positions etc
That is very sweet!
...It's because I can't stand watching myself or hearing the sound of my voice.
I didn't want a video for the precise reason katya describes above, so we didn't get one. Do I regret it?
Not at all...

I would suggest you get a friend to video the wedding. I wouldn't pay a professional.

I have plans to watch it again soon, but in my emotional hormonal state I know I'll cry, so I'm going to leave it for when I'm home alone .

Still not sure though? I have a few months to decide.

I do not regret a single cent we spent on it. She did a fantastic professional job and I watch the edited highlights (about 30 minutes) at least every 3 months, and we've been married over 5 years now. Adrey loves watching it too and gets so excited seeing Mummy and Daddy on the screen.
As others have said, I watch the video way more than I look at the photos. I am kinda over seeing the photos in fact. But I still love watching the video. It seems more real to me.
I say do it. You cant change your mind after the event!
