How Much Does a Wedding Videographer Cost?

Updated: Mar 9

Wedding Videographers in Toronto & GTA

Most Wedding Videographers are independent contractors, so it often varies. Typically, videographers will offer packages and a la carte pricing for extra services, extra time, or extra editing to allow you to customize your package. It is recommended that you start with a standard package and customize it from there to make sure all your bases are covered. You can often get a better bargain this way. “Every video is personalized and custom-made, so it really depends on what the couple wants, like the length of the video, inclusions of whole speeches versus snippets, add-ons like raw footage, how many cameras they want floating, and even the style of the video, like how it’s shot and edited,”


Peak wedding season may also affect the cost for some vendors, making coverage from June through October a bit pricier and harder to secure. In Findlay Future Films, the range can often run between $1,749 and $2,799 in Toronto and GTA or as much as $12,500 for a luxury shoot that turns you into a television-quality star for a day.

What’s Included in the Cost?

The exact inclusions may be personalized to your needs, but certain services are part and parcel of any professional wedding videography package you may book. Expect from 4 four to 9 nine hours of coverage, and know that additional time can cost as much as $200-$500 per half hour, which pays for the videographer’s and assistant’s time (if applicable), time spent editing additional footage, and video cards,". “But don’t worry if your day is expected to be longer! This amount of time is usually sufficient to cover everything from wedding day preparation to the cake cutting ceremony.” 

However, all the key moments in between should be accounted for in your contract. That means working alongside the photographer as the couple gets ready, arriving at the ceremony site in their own vehicle to film it in its entirety, capturing candid moments while syncing up with the DJ during cocktail hour, the couple’s reception entrance, and dances and speeches. Use of your videographer’s gear should also be included, like lavalier microphones, which are discreetly clipped-on mini-mics wired to bodypack transmitters, as well as necessary enhancements like music beds. Licensing fees should not come into play, as the end video is for personal use.
