Making a wedding video as a gift for a close friend or family member is a wonderful thing and can be a labor of love as well as giving you something you can use in a demo reel.
I don’t usually do weddings but am putting together another gift as I type (sis-in-law – I have several pieces done but need a lot more work). Were I to charge for what I did and plan to do, it would approach five figures. (Fly into NY from FL with all my equipment, spend a day with them for the rehearsal and all day during the event itself – over seven hours of raw footage, five separate videos on DVD, BD and web – trailer (3 mins), love story (5 mins), special song during ceremony (3 mins), highlights (25-30 mins) and full edit (75-90 mins).
Anybody you know getting married soon?
