Carlotta- I can't remember how far back your post was about a videographer (I am pretty sure I remember you saying you did extensive research trying to find one). Who did you end up choosing?? We are in the process of doing research and want to book one now but we are noticing a very big difference in price and in quality! We can't afford to pay thousands of dollars, but we don't want to go too cheap and get a really bad looking video. Right now we are finding some that are about 1700 usd, and they make really great videos, and the resort is offering for cheaper, but I don't have a lot of examples from them to really get a sense of their style. Are we in the right ball park for quality based on what you found? Who are you going with if you don't mind me asking?
Hi Jen, of course!! The videographer is Matias Zalazar, from Indigo Wedding. We found him in January after looking for options. For the same time, other videographers asked us 900 usd!
This is the website:
How many hours are you looking for? We have just wanted to have a video like the Chrestena. We talked with Matias and he told me no problem. So we booked him and an assistant for 90 minutes for 400 usd. If you dont book an assistant is 300 usd. We just wanted to have the before moments, ceremony and after. But I know he has several packages so you save money.
He is an Argentinan guy based in Playa del Carmen and I liked his videos. He is very flexible so you can ask him how exactly you want the video.
For example, in a lot of the videos he has in his website this starts with people talking while a song sounds and mix with some images without words. I prefered to have an structure as Christina's videos, I mean no people talking (except the minister).
We payed the 40% of the total amount thourgh Paypal. He is going to give us our video before leaving Mexico. Living in Spain neither the videographer nor the photographer wanted to pay the high costs of delivering so both are giving us our dvds some days later.
For 400 usd we are going to have 2 videos: one of 4-5 minutes and other longer of 15-20 min
Matias speaks English so you can talk with no problem with him. He is also available for Skype sessions if you want to ask him directly any questions.
Hope to be helpful ; )
