Wedding Videography Toronto

There are more and more companies offering wedding videography services in Toronto. Before diving in, the first thing to consider is the cost and what to expect for the price you pay. A very simple package for wedding videography can start from $500-$1,000. Most professional videos range from $1,500 to $5,000 or more. An important aspect to note is the cost of equipment and software. Although the equipment doesn’t always equal quality videos, most professionals will have to purchase very expensive cameras, lighting equipment, rails, and video editing software; none of these things are cheap. Editing software alone, such as the popular Adobe Creative Cloud starts at $600 USD per year.

It’s not unheard-of for a videographer to invest in many thousands of dollars in equipment just to get started. Again, some innovative and highly skilled people are able to do more with less; equipment is always secondary to skill. All of these areas factor into what a videographer charges their customers.

If hiring a professional for wedding videography, it’s important to discuss in detail what all will be included. A starter package may only include an hour or two of the wedding ceremony, one camera, lighting, and minimal video editing. Video editing can be a very time-consuming process depending on the level of quality that is expected. Larger packages could include a wedding reception video, prewedding, extended videos of family or guests, and so on. Every additional feature and hour of video can drastically increase the price. A lot of wedding videographers have started out as photographers, so you can usually get a package that also includes professional photos.

Don’t miss this vital step, and that is to thoroughly look over the videographer’s video and photo portfolios, and ask for references to call! You want to make sure you are dealing with someone who will keep open communication with you throughout the whole process from beginning to end. Sometimes it’s only the beginning that goes well, so be careful with only going by the sales pitch.
