After watching tons of beautifully edited wedding videos and admittedly bawling my eyes out over some, (and yes I know it's cray cray to get weepy over videos of strangers getting married but unless your heart is made of stone, it's hard to control the waterworks!) I desperately wanted a videographer at the wedding. I started doing research into some videographers in Montreal and was pretty floored when I saw the price packages. These Hollywood style videos certainly do not come cheap--the one company whose style I absolutely loved would have been anywhere between $3,000 - $6,000 to book. And unfortunately we just wouldn't have been able to squeeze this in to our already bloated budget.
Discouraged, I shelved the issue for awhile and didn't really think about it again until a few months ago. I just kept going back to the idea that there was just something so special about being able to capture live video of the wedding and I just knew I would regret not having something physical to watch afterwards. So back to researching I went, but this time I was more interested in finding budget and "DIY" videography options. And that's when I came across WeddingMix.

And while I know of course the video edit won't have the same Hollywood style look and feel that caught my eye in the first place, I think there's something unique and even special about having people who actually know and love you capture the events of the big day :)
Anyone else going the DIY videography route or have you decided to hire a pro videographer?
