Cinematic, Film-Quality Detroit Wedding Videography
Your wedding day can last forever.
Should you “splurge” on a wedding video?
We’re a Michigan wedding videography company, so of course we’re going to recommend having a video. But we’re not the only ones saying so: 93% of brides who don’t hire a videographer regret it—often as soon as the day after their wedding.
The truth is, your wedding will be over before you know it. At the very least, you’ll likely be a bit distracted that day. You might have beautiful moments slip under your radar. Cute moments, too. And hilarious ones. Maybe even stuff-of-family-legends ones. Your Detroit Wedding Videographer will catch all of your memories.
A wedding video is not a “splurge.” It’s an heirloom you’ll watch every anniversary. (And it’s more affordable than you think!)

Detroit Wedding Videography | What to Look for When Hiring
Has the wedding video company been in business for at least 5 years and have other wedding professionals heard of them? We hear a lot of horror stories about videographers going out of business without returning deposits, taking 6 months or longer to deliver completed videos
Is the finished product emotionally charged, interesting and fun to watch? Is the picture quality what you are used to watching on TV or does the camera shake often and seem grainy? How is the audio? Never settle for anything less than film-like quality.
Are the videographers dressed appropriately? Do they belong to any professional organizations? Do they maintain an office location with a full time staff? Do they return phone calls promptly? Are they easy to get along with and give you a sense that you are their #1 priority? Mike Staff Productions’ mission is to provide the “absolute best customer service that you have ever had, anywhere, and at any time in your entire life”.
Most importantly, can you fit them in your budget? Are you pleasantly surprised by the price compared to similar quality work? Do their packages include a lot of value or do they try to “nickel and dime” you? Keep in mind, lowest cost usually means lower quality, while highest cost does not always mean highest quality.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, but your wedding video allows that day to live on forever. While some memories are bound to fade over the years, having every moment on film is a truly priceless benefit of hiring a Detroit wedding videographer. Getting to see and hear your spouse recite their vows, again and again, is irreplaceable. A videographer can capture that exact moment in time, in a way that photographs would never be able to capture. The same can be said of the toasts at the reception.
The length of your wedding video depends on how many hours your Michigan wedding videographer documents your day. You will receive both an edited wedding film AND an 8 to 10-minute highlight video with our 8-hour wedding videography package.
