Wedding Photographer and Videographer

One day. One chance. One moment. Everything needed to be captured perfectly.

That’s how we envision our big day. We want the whole 24 hours, every minutes and every seconds captured through the lens if possible because this is something that we’d definitely treasure for the rest of our lives. But finding the perfect wedding photographer and videographer that fits right on a couple’s tight budget is like finding a needle on a haysack. That’s how difficult and serious the task is. Being an overseas bride-to-be as well, the only way for me to find our perfect team is through images and reviews by other people posted online. (Thank you to the wonders of the internet!) But sadly, a lot of factors are still needed to be considered as well aside from the budget since the photographer and videographer’s creativity, style and packages differ a lot.

Since future hubby and I have an exposure in doing events — he’s a video editor and I’m a newbie photographer who have covered simple prenup and weddings before, this became one of the most difficult challenge to get through. Although we both know that we have more than a year to search for the BESTEST YET AFFORDABLE PHOTOGRAPHER AND VIDEOGRAPHER back home, this still makes us go AWWW, WHY ARE THEY SO EXPENSIVE?!

So far we have inquired a couple of photographers and videographers that are really good with their craft. But when it comes to the packages.. some would make us want to cry. 😦

Anyway, rates posted below is for 2015 to 2016 and is obviously subject to change without notice but usually prices increase after November or December.  The rates are their packages and they have stand-alone or customized ones which you can ask them personally. They’re listed in a random order and in Philippine pesos denomination (Php).

UPDATED LIST AS OF 23 JULY 2017

TPLEASE CHECK WITH THE SUPPLIERS DIRECTLY FOR MORE INFO (OOT FEES, DISCOUNTS, PROMOS ETC) SINCE ALL RATES IS FOR A MANILA-BASED 2015-2016 WEDDING 😊 INCREASED RATES ARE APPLICABLE FOR 2016-2017 WEDDINGS UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE 

** Disclaimer: All the rates that is posted below are those that we have gathered over the course of a few months while searching for our suppliers. We have decided to publicly post it here as a useful guide for all Brides-to-be and Grooms-to-be since we know how hard it is to find supplier rates and compare them one-by-one especially for those who are based abroad. The list is not intended for any other purpose and were not even connected with any of them. **

  1. Hi im abi, i am also looking for photgrapher and videographer for my wedding and tama nga its really expensive . I never thought ganun pala ang pricing nila wala akong idea since im the first one who will be getting married in the family. And i live in abroad i really really dont have a clue lalo na sa venue 😰 i hope you get to find your supplier.

    • Hi Abi. I know how you feel! We compiled these rates from weeks of researching from one supplier to the next. Nakakaloka to be honest primarily dahil sa pricing nila especially for us OFWs. I never really thought that the wedding industry lately is getting more expensive, it’s like a commodity na! By the way I will be posting later our list for possible venues. I hope these information can help you to find your photographer and videographer!

      Thanks by the way. So far meron na kami photographer..videographer na lang. 🙂

Yes I’ve asked all of them (literally) about on going promos, any freebies or discounts and tried to use my best haggling skills since we’re still more than a year away but not everyone has one.

  6. I highly recommend Indemand Wedding Films. They have a very professional team! Especially Jerome, When we met Sir Jerome in a wedding fair, we found a very humble man (not the typical supplier who will really market people by words). We signed in to their team for our wedding even without researching about them after seeing their sample videos coz we we’re really impressed. When our SDE was shown, BOOOOM! Our tears just fell down…and just said…”ang ganda”..They captured our happy, precious moments and made it a lifetime souvenir. We are so proud that we have their team for giving us that captivating video, I know that they’ll go places! They are one of the best suppliers:) Thanks for adding them on this blog… I was actually searching for a blog where I can post a review for them…

  9. Hi! I recently booked my wedding photographer from the Edsa Shang wedding fair last weekend, his name is Derrick Ian Lim and he is associated with Imagine Nation. He used to be a master photographer with Imagine Nation until he was finally given the blessing to start his own brand. I like his style mostly because his shots are true to color – i mean, they don’t look overexposed/ there’s no white wash on the photo (yung parang it’s too bright/white kasi mejo over exposed yung shot). Coz apparently, white washing is a trend these days to give photos that dramatic effect. What i love about Derrick’s style is that his shots are still dramatic without the overexposure effect. He has a knack for capturing those natural, candid moments. What’s more is that he tries to connect with his clients so their personalities shine during the shoot. This makes it easier for camera shy or camera awkward people to feel more comfortable in front of a camera. As for rate, we booked him with a discount coz of the fair but his regular rate for the package he gave us is around 85k. We got full wedding documentation + prenup shoot + 1 song prenup avp + same day photo avp + 100 prints 4r size photos + 12×12 40 page album + 2 copies 10×10 parents’ album and soft copy in usb.

    Still looking for videographers although im into this group called Rewind Media. Rates are also very competitive and the style is pretty good too. Good balance of fun and dramatic. Hope this helps fellow brides! 🙂

  11. I’ve checked out Jeff and Lisa, excellent artists but whew, costs an arm and leg. Their lowest package is 100K. We tried Ruffa+Mike but failed, we’ve checked out other local suppliers sa province but not our type. We are now in negotiation with Polk Wedding Studios, he’s done work for Nicolai Melicor so his craftsmanship is fresh and clean, the type we are looking for. Plus he is passionate with what he’s doing and easy to work with, this is something we look for in a supplier. Sabi ko, sisikat tong taong to. His package is affordable too, you can check him out: http://www.polkweddingstudios.com

    • Hi Missy Doria. Congrats on your engagement. As an OFW it’s really difficult to start the wedding preps especially if you don’t know where to start or who to talk to. I do hope all the info on this blog will be helpful on your preps. Feel free to ask away if you need any help. Thanks for appreciating! Happy preps. 🙂

  13. Great blog! Really informative and helpful! Will be getting married by December 2017 and currently checking out the videographers in this list! We already booked our photographer and unfortunately they’re not in this list. They covered my sister’s wedding last year and the photos were really beautiful! The photographer’s name is Polk Wedding Studios. The team was very professional and easy to talk to! especially their lead photographer sir James. Their website is http://www.polkweddingstudios.com
    They’re not that expensive too! great quality that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg!

  15. Hi. OFW bride to be here. We are eyeing One Carlo for photo and Dreamechanics for video. Over budget na kami dahil sa One Carlo. Do you think they have different rates for OFWs? Gusto ko sana manghingi ng discount kay OC since i heard pag wawie ka ung ibang suppliers nagbbgay sila ng discount pero nahihiya ako. I dont know how to haggle. But i think i have to learn dahil ayoko mag overspend

    • Hi Hazel. As far as we know wedding suppliers don’t have separate rates for OFWs. You can only get discounted rates if they have existing promos or if you book them during bridal fairs. It’s better to inquire with them directly and try to haggle with their rates if you can. True some suppliers give discounts if you’re a wawie but they would ask for waw tags to be sure if you’re a legit wawie. Good luck!

  16. Hi sis , we thinking to get Indmand wedding films for our videographer. I was just wondering if do I still need to get a photographers? It seems like all the service that we need are in their package? Or Photographers nalang and not videographers since other photographers also do SDE? O magkaiba yun? Thank you sis. Sobrang mahal lang tlaga if we going to do both.

    • Hi Jen. Magkaiba ang photographer sa videographer. Don’t be confused with SDEs or Same Day Edit. Both photographers and videographers do that. If you want to have still shots, get a photographer. If you want to capture video or moving scenarios during your event, get a videographer. Again, they are different and have different rates.
