This is a very good question. The answers will probably end up being all over the place. I know for me I use an alacarte approach. I have the complete wedding experience broken down into sections with prices attached. The wedding couple then has the option to pick and choose what they would all like included. This way if money is an issue they can pick what they want. If money is not an issue than they just check everything. In fact I have one of those this weekend. Its a lot of work but then again its a lot of money too.
So I guess I cant really provide a strong answer because my play times vary all the time. All I know is that if you get too long it can get somewhat uninteresting. On the other hand, if youre good at editing you should be able to take a lot of content and put it together in a way that will keep everyone interested. Thats whats unique about wedding videography. Everyone has their own style. Is there a right way and a wrong way? I guess it’s always in the eye of the beholder. Its kind of like looking at art. Some people will look at a painting will like it and some will think its awful. Just remember that when it comes to a wedding video the only people you have to worry about pleasing is the paying couple and that comes from understanding what makes a good wedding video in the first place.
