Well, before you read too far, yes I am a wedding videographer. I see these questions often and one of my first thoughts is "If wedding video was free, would these questions exist?" My point is, is it a matter of wanting video or rationalizing the cost? I would imagine its rationalizing the cost and perfectly understandable as the planning process can chew up the budget in no time. Some may prioritize ABC while others prioritize XYZ, but in the end, it all comes down to where YOUR priorities lie. You have probably heard this before, but the day really does go by so quickly and being able to look back, and listen, to everything is a priceless treasure. Watching on your anniversary, playing for your children and grandchildren, and now that my wedding video is 20 years old, revisiting with loved ones who are no longer with us, is genuinely irreplaceable. If you can manage your budget to include video, I am certain if I asked you in ten or twenty years if you are happy you did it, the answer would be a big YES.
