Wedding planning can be overwhelming, with so many decisions to make and expenses to consider. One key aspect of your big day is capturing the memories on film. When it comes to your Sunshine coast wedding videographer, you may be wondering how much to allocate in your budget. But why is having a budget for your wedding video so important? In this blog, we’ll dive into the reasons why setting a budget for your wedding video is crucial, and what factors you should consider when determining your budget. Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a groom-to-be, or a family member helping plan the wedding, this article will provide you with valuable insights and tips for creating the perfect wedding video within your budget.

Your Investing In Something That Will Last Forever!

When it comes to budgeting for your wedding videography, it’s important to think about how you want to cherish the memories of your special day for years to come. Your wedding video will be a lasting keepsake that you’ll be able to look back on and relive the emotions of the day over and over again. Whether you’re watching it on your first anniversary or sharing it with future generations, your wedding video will play an important role in preserving the story of your love.

So, take some time to consider how long you’d like your wedding video to be and how often you imagine yourself revisiting the footage. With a little forethought, you can make sure that you’re investing in a wedding video that truly captures the essence of your celebration and allows you to relive the magic for many years to come.

Get The Right Balance Between Cost vs. Quality

For wedding videography there are three main categories of cost. Budget, Professional and Luxury / High End. Typically budget is less than $1500, these wedding videographers are typically new and you cannot always guarantee quality. Professional starts at around $2000+ and at this point you are generally hiring a full-time wedding videographer who specialises in wedding videography, to help you with your day. High End videographers are typically the highest quality and most experienced in your area, they typically charge $5k+ and you are guaranteed to have a fantastic film.

My recommendation is if you are looking to have a wedding video, choose a professional videographer (or a luxury videographer). You may regret choosing a lower quality videographer – as they may not be able to properly capture your day. The only exception is if you’re not too worried about the quality and are just happy to have them capture your full ceremony or speeches, then at lower price points wedding videographers can be helpful.

Here is an example of one of my wedding films, I would say (at the time of writing) I’m at the lower end of a Luxury / High End wedding videographer.

Compare Your Video Budget To Your Photography Package

When planning their wedding, many couples tend to prioritize photography over videography and allocate a higher budget to the former. However, both photography and videography services often offer similar features and cost around the same. For example, both services generally include a set number of coverage hours and camera operators. Additionally, both the photos and video will require editing after the wedding. It’s important to remember that you are not only paying for the final product, but also for the vendor’s years of expertise, top-of-the-line equipment, customer service, and credibility within the industry.

Determine Your Preferred Style And Research Videographers In Your Area

When it comes to choosing the right Sunshine coast wedding videographer, it’s important to consider their individual style. With options ranging from traditional to vintage to modern cinematic, there’s sure to be a videographer whose style fits your vision. A great way to get a feel for each style is to browse wedding planning websites and see what catches your eye. Once you’ve found a few styles you love, reach out to three to five wedding videographers in your area that offer similar styles. This will help you get an idea of what you can expect to pay. When comparing prices, be sure to look at all the details of each package, like the number of hours of coverage, the location of the service, and the items included. By making sure you’re comparing similar styles, services, and package details, you’ll get a clearer idea of what the average cost for your dream Sunshine coast wedding videographer will be.

Determine Your Top Priorities

It’s essential to consider what moments are most important to you. Do you want to capture the excitement of getting ready in the morning with all of your best friends? Or relive the magical moment when the wish lanterns were released into the night sky? Maybe you want every single second of your special day to be recorded because of its significance in your life. Or, perhaps you need to stick to a budget because you’ve overspent in other areas. By considering these factors, you’ll be able to determine the number of hours you need your videographer to capture and the budget you want to allocate for this part of your wedding.
