Videographer or a second photographer?

If you had some extra room in your budget, would you rather hire a videographer? 馃帴 Or upgrade your photography package to add a second shooter? 馃摳 Which would you rather?

    Second photographer. May not be the popular opinion, but my FH and I talked about it and neither of us actually believe we would re-watch a video. We know we would talk the photos out and look at them though

    I think I might be the unpopular opinion, but I think I would go with neither. As long as I have a couple good photos that I will display or look at often, that's all the money I would want to spend and our photographer we have is affordable and amazing! I would rather put the money towards upgrading my wedding menu to surf and turf since it's on the east coast and I can never have too much lobster!! Realistically with the price of videographers it would probably come out to being the same price, haha!
    Instead, we will do surf and turf for our rehearsal dinner and we are happy with that!

    We had 2 photographers and it was amazing. It's cool to be able to see the posed pictures, as well as the candid view from a second photographer.

    My parents got married in '99 and my Papa (my moms dad) filmed the whole thing on a held video camera - I find it so sweet to be able to look back with my parents at their special day and so we caved and hired a friend in the business of videography.

    I do think Pinterest and Instagram has created an unrealistic expectation because many of those photos are staged - or cost a fortune. However if you do a little digging you might just find someone with an amazing talent that also fits your budget. I trust our photographers to capture our day beautifully I am only worried about my opinion and criticism of myself in those photographs.

    I would upgrade my photography package. I don't have time to watch tv right now let alone a video of my wedding.

    I absolutely LOVE the little clips from videographers, so I'd have to go with that. They are just so sweet and all the music and stuff that goes with it. They are just wayyyy out of my budget range. Again, bring on more money!

    Second photographer was a must for us. We need all the angles.
