Yep. Remember, we were an at-sea wedding so things were a little different.

The videographer was very nice, but the end product just wasn't worth the dollars paid. He did end up in some of our pictures and that was not ideal. Also, frankly at some points in the video it just gets really boring watching us walk around the ship and "fake shop". It would have been nice if there had been video of us actually doing the things we liked to do on the cruise- like the water slide or air hockey or playing the slots in the casino (maybe we're boring, but that's what we liked to do :-). Some of the footage is nice to watch, but overall, the video is the one thing I most regret spending the money on.

I'm actually going to change my mind and disagree with my own post. This thread prompted me to re-watch the wedding video last night with my DH. We laughed and smiled through the whole viewing. I think I wasn't happy with it for the price right after the wedding because it wasn't perfect and I wanted everything to be perfect. Now that it's pretty much a year or so later, I am so happy to have the video. I still wish we had gotten different footage other than the shopping, and I still think the price was outrageous for the quality, and I still wish I had lost a few more pounds before being filmed :-) But overall I am so happy to have all of those memories on video.

How did the videographer capture the on board activities? Did he schedule time with you or was he a bit of a lurker and captured candid footage?

Your question just made me laugh :-) No he wasn't a stalker/lurker. But I was honestly worried it would be like that :-)

We scheduled a time before dinner on elegant night to meet with him. It was pretty staged. We sat in the library and did "interviews" (wish I'd known the questions beforehand :-) Then he had us get on and ride the glass elevator. Then we went to meet the Captain. Then the fake shopping (I think because the shops were pretty empty). Then- this part I did really like- he filmed us up on an unpopulated aft deck looking out over the ocean and sunset.

It was candid in that there wasn't a script or anything, but it was pretty obvious to everyone he was following us around and directing us at some points. We could have had him go to the beach or on a shore excursion with us and maybe that would have added to the video's diversity, but I didn't want to have to worry about being filmed while trying to relax on a shore excursion or at the beach. We should have asked him instead to film us engaging in some of the other activities we enjoyed on the ship.
