Videographers - price, recs, etc.

Recommended Posts

If you are using a videographer, are you flying the videographer down or hiring him/her from the area. any recommendations? I'm trying to figure out pricing too, so knowing what people are paying for videography would be super helpful.

 

Thanks!

We trusted Paul Schrank at Playa Weddings - Videography in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya to produce the video at our wedding. Here is a peek at our first dance: Sol & Matt's First Dance on Vimeo Paul lives in Playa del Carmen = NO travel fees!

 

Paul offers delivery in HD and doesnt overload himself during the wedding season so he can truly dedicate a high end product to you. He also uses lapel mics. MANY MANY videographers use on camera mics which pick up wind and ambient noise, robbing you of a beautiful video.

 

Do you have a widescreen TV / plasma at home? Ask your videographer if they shoot in 4:5 format or 16:9 format. If you do have widescreen and your videographer shoots in 4:5 format, then you will look like a CLOWN on your widescreen as the format will stretch your 4:5 video picture to make it 16:9. NOBODY wants that, eh?

 

Make sense? There are LOTSA questions to ask videographers...

 

Good luck!

remember: paul schrank = quality product.

Paul is getting married on the same day as me, which is why I'm searching for someone else good. I'm kinda picky since I have film and editing experience myself and I edited my sister's wedding video.

 

I also wanted to know what other brides' videography budget looks like. I found one woman from LA that I can fly out with 2 HD cameras, wireless mics, 3 copies of edited dvd, and raw footage for $3000 + $1000 travel expenses, which seems a bit on the high side - but since my friend shot my sister's wedding video (she borrowed a good camera from work), I don't have a ton of perspective.

The person who posted at the beginning of this thread, Mike Cantarell, did my video. He does the videos for dreams cancun.

 

I wasn't planning to get a video, but it was included in our package so we got it. I really had very low expectations, it was included so it wasn't like I was hiring my own vendor for it. But I'm so happy we got it and I was so happy with the quality, he did a fantastic job!

Well I also wrote Mike/Miguel Cantarell through his site 2x but have yet to hear back from him. Paul from playaweddings suggested writing Miguel. Mike - if you read this - please let me know if you got an email inquiry re: May 4, 2008 and write me back, thanks!

Remember that you can only enjoy the true HD experience if you have an HD TV and an HD player otherwise you will end up with a Standard Definition (SD) DVD or an HD DVD you cannot play on your SD system.

you might want to send him a private message in case he doesn't see your post.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
