I'm torn on the video.....I know that I won't watch it often; however, pictures will adorn my walls. On the other hand, it would be good to have to post online for friends/family who couldn't make it. I guess that's enough of a reason to spend only $300, huh?
Our package of 36 photo's & edited video was $600. GET THE VIDEO!!!! It is amazing, better than the sample ones I seen and better than we hoped for. I believe I've watched it 4 times now....(we got married on the 9th at CSS). It is well worth every penny!!
I'm double checking with Debbie the stateside wedding coordinator on this. She gave me the price of the videography of $400 separate from the photo packages.
She said that the CD listed in the photo packages is just a copy of the pictures they are printing for you.
I'm getting a lot of conflicting information from her. Totally maddening. I hope to get it worked out yet this week.
Spending over $600 on pics and an extra $400 on videography is pretty steep.
Ok, first what I would do is request the pricing list. I had 2 copies of that printed out and brought it with me just in case. This list will give you prices for: Wedding upgrades like location, bouque24 ts, music, cake, etc...also includes all photography pricing and such.
I will list it here:
36 photos- $400
24 photos w/vhs- $450
24 photos w/dvd- $500
36 photos w/vhs-$550
36 photos w/dvd- $600
*deluxe pack w/vhs-$610
*deluxe pack w/dvd-$650
DVD's seperately are $400
We did the 36 photo w/dvd option for $600. Keep in mind with ANY package you get the photos are both printed out for you and copied to a cd. The only difference in getting a deluxe pack is there are different SIZES of the pictures printed out. They do actually offer different photo packages there too. We opted for a little different one where we got some more photo's but ours are not printed out they are just on the cd. We can get them printed out for cheap so that doesn't matter...
Marie and I are getting married at CSA on 6-27-11 at 11am, We are purchasing the resort package 36 photos and video.. But also I am bringing my personal nikon dslr and movie camera as I don't feel 36 photos will quite be enough.. If a couple would attend our wedding to use our camera and video camera we would gladly attend yours and do the same.. I am no professional, but have had years of experience taking pics and movies.. I'm sure the resorts will be better but we figure we may get a few nice ones to add just the same.. If anyone is interested let us know all we ask is that you bring a spare SD card for your pictures, if you forget it's no big deal as I'm sure I will have a spare.. We will be there from 6-23 till 7-1..Hope to see everyone there...
We got married at CSA in 2004. We got the smallest photo package and had them do the DVD besides the VHS(it was a while ago!). We then had a few blown up for our home but honestly we haven't looked at the album for years. The DVD turned out AWESOME and we watch it a couple times a year. Well worth the money. I blubber every time I watch it. Just my two cents.
