First off, the term “budget” is definitely a point of view. “Affordable” to a wealthy person may be totally unreachable for most people while “budget” may be undesirable for a wealthy person.

So how does a middle class person find an affordable wedding package that fits in their budget without sacrificing quality or risking total failure? How does a wealthy person obtain the perfect wedding package without spending more than they need to?

The answer is really quite simple… bundle your services!

The internet gives us all the opportunity to shop as much as we want to… but unfortunately life itself does not usually yield the time to do a proper job of it. Lack of experience at selecting a wedding DJ, affordable wedding photographer, and excellent videographer leads many people to making poor decisions based on 1st impressions, shortage of time, or costs.

The good news is that there are some very reputable companies that do all the legwork for you. They will select the perfect vendors for you based on your vision of your ultimate wedding celebration! They’ve already done the searching, verified references, checked BBB reports, looked at portfolios, discussed equipment, evaluated personalities, and most importantly, they know exactly what the right questions to ask are!

By combing multiple vendors under 1 overhead they are able to not only provide excellent talent, they can also offer much better prices that you can get hiring these professionals direct and individually. Don’t get me wrong, there are some BAD multiple operator companies out there so be sure and check out their reviews before you select one to provide the staff for your special day. Researching and selecting the right company will take far less of your time than selecting the individuals yourself, and you will be much happier with the results than if you selected the vendors yourself. How much experience do you have searching for a wedding DJ, affordable wedding photographer, and a wedding videographer? Why not find a professional to do it all for you?

They say a picture says a thousand words. Our personal video records at 50 pictures per second. With our average wedding ceremony being 15 minutes long that would be 45 thousand pictures!

From a wedding photographer’s point of view there are only 6 or 7 events that happen at a wedding:

  • you come down the aisle
  • you stop at the altar or arch
  • you exchange rings
  • you may or may not have a candle or sand ceremony
  • you have your 1st kiss
  • you turn and face the guests
  • you walk back down the aisle

Wedding video will capture every second of your ceremony including your vows!

The rest of the time you are pretty much standing there so the majority of your wedding photos will just be different angles of the same thing. If you get 80-100 photos of your ceremony your wedding photographer did a great job!

As newlyweds you will be very excited about your wedding album and look at it often… but as time goes on you will look at it less and less until eventually you might almost forget where that safe place you keep it is.

Wedding video is a lot different. You will have a DVD that you can keep right next to your DVD player and pop it in anytime you want. Your ceremony video will include every moment, every word, every tear, every bit of laughter, and is an archive of your ceremony that will last many generations.

Your wedding videographer will also probably make you a mini-movie with highlights of your special day starting with you getting ready until the last note of your last dance. He/she will also give you all of the raw footage they shot that day including video of family and friends that will not be with us forever. Most weddings bring together guests from all over the country and your wedding could very well be the last time that all of these people are together.
