Wedding Videography is one of the most important things in your wedding priority list, so obviously, you want to find a talented and creative videographer for your big day—but you also want to spend your money wisely. To do this, you’ll need to ask any video pro you’re considering for information on their wedding videography packages. 

The price which you’ll definitely want to know before signing on the dotted line. They will give you all the details you need to know before hiring them. If you haven't worked with the videographer before, you might find some of the terminology confusing and wedding videography packages will likely vary from one videographer to another.

We’re here to break it all down and help you learn about wedding videography packages, and figure out to get the most for your money. 

So, let's get started with all the terms you need to know as you start comparing and narrowing down the videographers in your area.

The Basics

A wedding videography package should answer all the basic questions and doubts about the videographer, his work, and services. Who will be present at my wedding, for how long, and what type of equipment will he or she use? All sorts of questions matter, after all, you are going to invest in it and also it is one of the most important things.

Hours of Coverage

The more time a videographer spends at your wedding, the more you’ll pay. That’s pretty much how wedding videography packages work. Many videographers offer several packages like- a four-hour package, an eight-hour package, and a 10-hour package. You can also think like that if you are tight in your budget you might consider hiring a videographer for a shorter amount of time, whether that means covering your ceremony only, skipping the pre-ceremony prep time, or leaving your reception early. It all depends on you so you work with your videographer to choose from many options. 

Number of Videographers

Videographers often work solo and sometimes they bring an assistant(or two!) to shoot from different angles, help with lighting, and more. If budget is a major issue in your wedding and want to keep it short, videography companies may offer less expensive packages that come with one shooter and one videographer may be sufficient for it.

There are more expensive packages that come with an assistant (or assistants!). For most weddings, it’s preferable to have at least two pros on hand. Assistance really helps with a variety of angles and lightings.


In wedding videography packages, you might notice information about a videographer's types of equipment like-cameras and audio equipment. Even if a videographer is working solo they carry at least two cameras to cover the wedding. With two cameras they will be able to capture two different angles at the same time. Either an assistant will hold the other camera, or a tripod will be used. It is also important for you to ask them what audio gear they have brought to shoot the wedding, the microphones they are using, etc as the sound quality also has its own importance. If you have forgotten to ask the videographer to bring the audio gear with them you can add it to your list ask them for it, as you want to capture the clearest sound possible in your wedding.

Final Products

It is also known as deliverables, this refers to what you’ll receive from your videographer after the wedding: an edited video, unedited footage, or a combination of the two.


Highlight videos are the most popular wedding videographer offering nowadays, usually a short, 5-10 minute video. It is often set on a piece of music or soundtrack that shows the most important moments of the day. This type of wedding video is popular and in-demand because this is the wedding video that you’ll likely watch the most, and share with loved ones. It’s long enough to show the highlights of the day, but not too long so the viewer won’t lose interest.
