Cinematic, film-quality Detroit wedding videography
Your first look can last forever.

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 them all.
A wedding video is not a “splurge.” It’s an heirloom you’ll watch every anniversary. (And it’s more affordable than you think!)

Frequently Asked Questions
Is a videographer worth it for a wedding?
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.
How long is the average wedding video?
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. Overall, your full length, edited wedding film will be an average of 1-2 hours depending on your package.
How much does it cost to get a wedding videographer?
According to WeddingWire.com, the average cost for wedding videography in Metro Detroit is $1800. Our Detroit Wedding Videography prices start at $1,595. But you’ll find that capturing your wedding day on video is priceless.
Will I regret not having a wedding video?
In a recent survey, 93% of newlyweds who did NOT hire a professional wedding videographer regretted it, often as soon as the day after their wedding.. Additionally, newlyweds that used both a photographer AND videographer agreed that video does a much better job of capturing the emotions of the day, recording the history of the day, and creating a visual memory that future generations will enjoy more.
