Single Videographer Wedding Packages

Vanilla Video™ Makes it possible to film your Wedding.

  Affordable like None Other

We made wedding videography affordable. Vanilla Video™ is the only video production company that offers wedding videography for as little as $99. However, our average single videographer wedding package is under one thousand, with most customers spending between $769 - $1,499.

Please know, that while we do have affordable videography packages, and do cover $99 weddings from time-to-time, certain dates throughout the year are subject to Waitlisting due to heavy-demand. If you're planning a wedding on a budget — understand that Fridays and Saturdays may be subject to waitlisting, or require a minimum order.

We truly do turn away hundreds of weddings per year due to our limited number of videographers. Please plan ahead — we do not offer holds on dates or reservations. We practice first-come, first-serve booking.

  Wedding Ceremony Video Coverage

We recommend an extra 30 - 60 minutes. If your ceremony is only half an hour, we still recommend getting a full hour of coverage. Likewise for hour-long ceremonies, we recommend 90 minutes. Yes — we want you to get more coverage. Here's why, and what you'll miss:

  • Establishing Shots of the Venue. When we arrive, we like to gather b-roll shots of the atmosphere, building, who's there, and any additional footage you may want for memory or editing later on.

  • Candids of Guests. Prior to the start of the wedding, we film guests naturally interacting with each other. If you want to remember who was there, this helps.

  • Photo Sessions Afterwards. Some of the best and funniest moments are in-between all the major events. Because we film candidly, we try to capture unexpected moments during the photo sessions.

  Wedding Cocktail Hour Coverage

Yes. Get cocktail hour video coverage. This is perhaps the best time to get candid video of guests. Your friends & family are at their peak during the cocktail hour. Guests look good, they're mingling with one another, smiling and having fun, and excited to see the night unfold.

Capturing candid video of guests prior to reception and enjoying dinner allows us more opportunity to gather B-roll footage for editing and memory later on. More video coverage is generally always better.

  Wedding Reception Video Coverage

Cover the main events, plus an hour of dancing. We recommend full-coverage of the wedding reception from start to finish, especially if you are having a fancy exit. If on a budget, we recommend covering all the main events of the wedding reception, with an hour of dancing footage.

  • Establishing Shots & Details. Having us arrive early to the wedding reception allows us to get establishing shots of the venue, and capture details / decorations.

  • Capturing the Speeches. By far the most important aspect of wedding reception coverage is getting the speeches. Enough said.

  • All the Main Events. Beyond the speeches and toasts, capturing any quirky events is always a good thing to have on video. The obvious things like the Bride & Groom dance, parent dances, cake cutting, and bouqet / garter toss should be covered too.

  • An Hour of Dancing. Once the night is in full party-mode, and there's nothing left but to dance the night away, you will still want to capture about an hour or two of the general dancing and partying.

  What do most brides choose?

Most brides choose 6 or more hours of coverage. A common combo is 90 minutes for the ceremony and 6 hours for the reception. Our 10 hour package is great if you are looking to capture some of the bride / groom getting ready. But there's no right or wrong way — so please feel free to choose what works best for you and your budget. Just get it on video!
