Videographer?

Recommended Posts

I'd really like to have a DVD of our ceremony, one, for us to have a copy but second, to have one playing at our AHR

 

The Dreams Punta Cana DVD is $350

 

The Photo souvenior DVD is $390 + $60 shipping and it takes at least three weeks, which will be to late for us and you pay the day fee

 

Lastly, do you thikn I should consider buying a camcorder and asking a guest to videotape for us? They make some nice ones that are shake/blur resistant and have pretty good optical zoom

 

I don't know what to do, I'd really like the DVD but I don't think a 30 min or less video is worth almost $400 bucks but then again can I trust someone who doesnt' have a lot of expperience to get a decent video

 

Thoughts?

Personally, I plan on asking one of my guests to use a camcorder and record it for us. I just can't justify the expense of having the resort do it.

 

I have seen dvd's of friends weddings where a 'novice' guest did it for them and they came out very nice. They don't have all the 'bells and whistles' of a professional; but in the end, do you really need them if you have a professional photographer taking amazing photos?

If you can't find one to borrow or plan to buy one for yourself, I would consider "borrowing/renting" from a store. What I mean by this is that a few big electronic stores (eg.bestbuy) have camcorders that people returned. These are sold as open items and can be returned in 14 days without a restocking fee.

Not really the honest way to do things but can be useful in tough situations.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
