    Well I think that it is great that you know what your priorities are! That is sometimes the hardest part! We paid only like $600 for ours so I feel like you can get something for a much more reasonable price. Especially since it isn't your biggest concern - you may be willing to have less time or even a little less quality in exchange for a lower price. That will help you keep the $$ for the photographs which are more important for you.

    So you're half way there!

        I have decided video just isn't in my budget. So I'm going to make a picture video like this one
        YouTube - Levi and Christinas Wedding

        I love this video. I have watched it so many times. They have mostly pictures with a mix of video. Hopefully the footage taken with my camcorder will be good enough to merge in with some pictures.

            ha ha! I posted those key rings on a different thread & I guess I didn't hit ctrl C for the new llink.

            Instead of a wedding video, I'll just go with some key chains :)

              Thanks for the all your opinions! It's funny because it wasn't until two days ago that someone had asked me if I was hiring a videographer that I actually thought about it and now that's all I have been thinking about!! It never even crossed my mind. Pictures are much more of a priority to me, so I saved most of my budget for that. I'm afraid I'm going to regret, however, not recording my fiance and I exchanging our vows. I've been checking out some videographers, but so far a lot of the samples videos that are in my budget seemed a bit cheesey and dated . I don't want to spend a lot if I do hire one, but I also don't want to settle for a poor quality video just because the price was cheap.
