Wedding Videography By the Numbers

8–10 hours

The average length of time for a videographer to be at your event. “It’s just enough to get some [shots of] hair and makeup application and getting dressed through to the reception send-off.”—Adrianne Porcelli, Turquoise Video Productions

$3K+

Expect to pay $3,000 and up for an experienced videographer. “What you put in is usually what you get out—[a videographer] is an investment.”—Summer Saterfield, Summer Films

Under 10 min

It’s okay to ask for all the raw footage, the ceremony in its entirety, and even the rehearsal dinner speeches for posterity, but a great, attention-holding highlight reel will clock in “between seven and 10 minutes.”—S.S.

6-12 weeks

It’s reasonable to expect a “sneak peek” within a week or two and the complete video in six to 12. Just discuss with your vendor. “Some offer faster turnarounds for an additional fee.”—S.S.
