For a wedding, find a photographer who can do both wedding photography and videography. This usually costs you a lot less if you can find a company that can offer you it as a single package. Wedding photography is usually much more expensive than videography services. In fact, most brides and grooms focus on finding your wedding videographer as one of the last things they do, even though studies show that in later years, wedding video becomes the most important. Just think for a second. If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a video worth? If you have kids, you'll understand. They will be glad you have the wedding day of the camera so that they can survive in the memories as if they were there.
So ask your wedding videographer if he/she offer a discount on the combined package wedding photography and videography. Explain that you are looking to save as much money as possible, and you will be going with the filmmakers that can offer you the best deal, but still has a proven track record and great-looking portfolio. If they do not know it's a bad sign and you need to go. There are many talented professionals out there who have a tremendous passion for recording wedding videos, so do not be shy.
Even if you can not get a huge discount by combining your wedding photography and videography services, you will at least be able to negotiate a little more in the form of value-added services.
If your money goes further into more value in the form, you basically just saved money! Who knows what you might get? You never know until you ask. So, get out there and talk to the videographer if he/she specializes in wedding photography as well as videography!
Maybe you want to take one with your whole family in your album or as grandparents now. Some photographers only work in their studio, where they have all the necessary equipment at their disposal. Others specialize in less formal photo shoot, and are happy to come to your house.
