Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Bliss Images Photography & Cinema offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


How much does wedding videography cost?

Ignore the 'from' prices, no one ever pays that price.  The national average for wedding films last year was $2700.  But what's average?  Some people no doubt had as short as 2hrs coverage, and others the whole day at 16hrs.  Some only had 5 minute high quality clips, while others had 2hrs of less than exciting extended footage.  Some had their wedding filmed on a single $2000 semi-pro camera, many (like ourselves) take out $20 000 of gear.

 

One thing is for sure, regardless of price, you should be asking, how are you going to use this video, and what do you need it to do?  Most high end studios are producing wedding films with insanely high production values (to rival short films from 10 years ago that cost $100K+), but on relatively low budgets of $3k to $10k.  These films make couples feel glamorous and special, but in the pursuit of perfection, almost fall short with real (but rough) behind the scenes footage.... the stuff you’re going to want in 5 to 10 years.  

 

So ask yourself.... do I want this to make me feel special and my friends envious, with epic drone shots, sweeping slo-motion, and emotional music?  Or do I want to have some rougher footage with less polish, but actually see all the behind the scenes stuff that happened?  90% of couples are choosing the path of glossy glamour, but I feel that they'll regret that down the track.  BTW, we do the glamorous videos, and our price is $3800 for all day and night coverage, but we're trialling a more documentary style as we go.  

Can I choose my own music for my wedding video?

This is an area that even most videographers don’t fully understand, so not surprisingly, a lot of replies so far are not correct, or don’t tell the whole story.

 

We can legally, and at very reasonable cost, allow clients to include copyrighted music in their wedding film.  There will be restrictions: eg If you were to put it up on Youtube, it will likely get instantly taken down/silenced/monetised, so instead, we allow clients to legally watch it online from our own video streaming service (this is technically for review purposes only and is required to be password protected).  This path also provides for multiple physical copies of the wedding film to be legally made, but just not streamed publicly online.

Alternatively, at zero cost to you, let our editor pick from our library of royalty free music tracks, as other have alluded to.

 

For those in the wedding film industry wanting to know how to legally include copyrighted music in your video at a very reasonable cost, just ask!  As long as you don’t pretend to be a client, I’d be more than happy to share how it’s all done legitimately ??
