Are you a bride planning your wedding who would love to have video footage of the wedding, but cannot work it into your budget to hire a videographer? If so, you are not alone. According to The Wedding Report, the average spend for a videographer in the Sacramento area in 2018 was $1,279. As an experienced wedding planner in the Sacramento area, I can tell you that price seems kind of low as I’ve seen many clients book video packages for $2500 and more. So if you are working with a limited budget, what do you do if you want video footage of your wedding day? We recently partnered up with a company called Wed It which may be just the perfect solution for you.

 

With Wed It, they send you 5 HD cameras in the mail the Wednesday before your wedding and you pick 5 guests/friends/family members to capture every moment of your wedding, from the rehearsal to the after party. And they send you good cameras; iPod Touches, which have an extremely user-friendly interface, as well as their ability to take HD photos and videos in 1080p, along with flash, zoom, and sound. You send the cameras back on the Tuesday after your wedding, and Wed It hosts your footage online so you can easily view, download, and share the footage with friends and family. And they can even edit your footage to create a personal, professional and priceless wedding video
