    Hi! Anyone not use/using a professional videographer for your wedding? I'm considering not using one because we have a pretty decent camera and can edit it when we get home. I'm just nervous about the sound quality due to the wind and ocean.

    If you are using a videographer, how much are you paying (if you are comfortable sharing) and what is included in your package? Thanks so much!

      hi we used the resort videographer it was $350 i think for the hour and then they edited it all we picked a couple of songs we wanted on it, in the end we got about 1/2 of video it was worth it though they did a great job and it was nice to see it as the actual wedding went by so fast..

          I've been thinking about the video..but can't make up my mind!

          I personally think it's best to go with someone there..mainly for the wind/sound factor.

          You can go on YouTube and type in ROR Weddings and see some videos.

            I am in the same boat we were going to do our own sine I wont get to see everyone go down the aisle but now I am leaning towards getting one.

            A question for someone who hired one. I want to see the kids and my MOH come down but I was want to see my FH face also does your video show his expressions also? Or do you think its best I have someone just video tape the groom and another person video tape everyone walking in and then have it edited at home?

              We are more concerned with the photos than the videography. I mean pictures can be looked at every day if you want, where videos aren't quite the same. We hired a professional photographer and are having a friend do the videography.

                We decided not have a videographer, I agree with Davematthews16...we will look at the pictures a lot more than the video..and with the pics that we take we can make into our own video later on....

                  We just had a friend video for us and although its not that great, it will do for memory sake. For some reason our minister didn't have a mic so the sound is not that great. You can hear everything i say b/c I was facing the camera but DH had his back turned to the camera most of the time so you can barely make it out. I have heard very mixd reviews about the video from ROR, but i think no matter where you go you just have to decide how important is it really. How many times will you actually watch it? If you are planning an AHR then it might be worth it to have a nice pro video to play.

                    We did both... my dad went out and bought a really nice video camera right before we left, but we also got the video from the videographer done since we want to show parts of the video at our AHR. We thought my dad might be mad he bought the camera then went with the videographer anyhow... but let me tell you, when he saw what the videographer did, then got home and listened to his own version... he said it was well worth the money to have someone do it. All you can hear on his version is the wind, where as in the professionals one, there is no wind sound at all because the minister and my husband had microphones. In my opinion it was well worth it just so we can show it at our AHR (we plan on being introduced right after hearing our vows!)

                      We used the hotel videographer and for three hours we payed 498 and change. And the DVD is amazing, he edit and added music we loved it. Well worth the money. He did use microphones for the ceremony because of the wind. It's once in a life time get the professional.
