In recent years videography of weddings has changed and different videographers will offer wildly different products. Just be aware of the type of videographer you end up hiring. Some offer only short 10-15 minute edits of the day and will require that you set aside time for cinematic type shots with further coverage being charged as extras.
I am a traditional documentary style videographer who tries to remain discreet on the day and capture the day as it happens. The end product is a 90minute (approx) documentary coverage of the day with a 4-5 minute highlights package included.
Of course now that the world has changed and weddings likewise are no longer running like they used to I now offer individual pricing depending on your specific requirements. Call or email for custom quotes. I can shoot for any length of time required, from ceremony only, up to complete coverage of the day. Guideline prices are listed below.
The Finished Product : €1200 (Running time 90 minutes approx.*)
