Wedding videographers record and edit together various elements of a wedding to create a professionally produced wedding video. The engagement party, day-of preparation, ceremony and reception are commonly included in the footage. Multiple videographers may contribute, depending on the wedding size and desired outcome. Many factors affect the cost.

Hours

The longer the videographer is required to work at the wedding, the higher the overall cost. In addition, longer recording time at a wedding means more hours spent in the studio reviewing and editing all of the footage. This increased time affects the overall cost.

Number of videographers

Large weddings or weddings with a variety of components may require more than one videographer to capture multiple angles and elements. The production company will have to pay each videographer for his or her time, so the more cameras requested, the higher the cost to the client.

Packages

Many videographers sell their services in packages with tiered pricing, which allows the client to select hoped-for final products and the level of coverage desired. For example, videographer Gary Magill has two wedding day packages he provides:

  • Package 1: $1,400

    • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple

    • Two cameras with audio equipment

    • DVD including a 3- or 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event

    • Recordings of well wishes to the couple
  • Package 2: $1,800

    • Two videographers

    • Aerial videography

    • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple

    • Two cameras with audio equipment

    • DVD including a 3- to 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event

    • Recordings of well wishes to the couple

Equipment

Higher-end video, sound and aerial videography equipment will mean a higher overall price because the costs of purchasing and maintaining the equipment are generally reflected in the cost of services to the client.

Add-on services

Special effects, highlight reels, raw footage and additional DVDs can all be added on to a standard video package. Each special feature requested adds an additional cost, although some features cost less per item when purchased as a bundled package. For example, here’s how Illusion Media Works breaks down pricing for individual services and add-on services:

  • Ceremony-only video: $550 = edited footage solely of the ceremony

  • Photo insertion: + $350 = edit photos from the entire day into the video footage

  • Extra DVD copies: $35 = per DVD

  • Honeymoon photo add-on: + $350 = honeymoon photos provided by couple inserted into final wedding video edit

  • Raw footage: $150 = provide all the unedited coverage taken

  • Cinematic look: + $250 = add a movie-type effect to the wedding video

  • Photo montage: $750 = create a montage to show on the wedding day using the couple’s baby pics, dating pics, etc.

    • + $500 = screen rental

Reputation and location

Areas with a higher cost of living typically see higher costs for wedding videography services. In addition, highly requested videographers or those with celebrity credits often have higher fees.
