Here is what I've thought of so far:
1. much cheaper ($1200 vs. $200)
2. professional editor can create essentially the same product as far as compilation, music, etc.
1. have to ask guests/friends/family to do this rather than having a pro dedicated to it
2. risk having bad or un-useable footage (shaky camera, not in focus, etc)
3. have to have your own camera (we do, so this isnt really a con for us)
The best videos I've seen are between 6 and 12 minutes with some video mixed with photos as well. I'm thinking a home video might be an option for us.
Any insight is appreciated!!

The perk of having a family member do the video is that you get so much more video to use. We are having my sister do a documentary style filming for the week we are in MX for the wedding so we will have video of rehearsal dinner, reception, excursions, etc. But we are hiring a pro for an hour for the ceremony so that my sister is not having to worry about the video while she is being part of the ceremony.
Does that help? Carla

Well back to the drawing board. If I find a person to do it for just an hour I will let you know. Carla
