It is important to consider high quality production as you cannot recreate your wedding day. High prices does not necessarily mean the best and some operators have high end equipment but just ‘shoot and dump’ with no creativity and video editing skills. Avoid low quality and cheap productions which produces just as good a job as anyone else could on your own video camcorder! Somewhere in the middle is ideal as you will be happier with value-for-money service and outcome.

Get a good idea of the prices by doing some research. There are a few ways of doing it, Internet sites or by phone. I must point out that just shopping on price alone can be VERY disastrous. I have met people in the industry that charge top dollar and have the best equipment. The problem is, they have NO IDEA on how to use it. The same is said for the budget shooters that shoot for below $1000; they are mostly shoot-and-dump. No professional editing skills and creativity. You will have a watered down wedding video, and it will show in your wedding video. Check the high-end prices with the low-ball prices. The average costs should be somewhere in between.
