What Determines the Price of Your Wedding Video?

  • Experience: Shooters who have been doing this for years generally come at a higher price but also provide peace of mind that your videographer will be well-prepared for your wedding.
  • Equipment: Cameras, lighting, audio equipment costs money and the value of that equipment can range from $1000-$10,000+ including multiple cameras, professional lenses, drones and more.
  • Availability: Some videographers like to cover weddings weekly, others monthly. The less availability will drive costs up but also assure that your videographer will have plenty of time allotted to your project.
  • Hours of Coverage: This is obvious. Most packages are around 10 hours but if more or less time is needed, price will change.
  • Inclusions: Covering your day is only a small portion of your wedding video price. The brunt of the work will come on the editing side. So the amount of final cut versions will play a role on the cost of your wedding video.
