"We are so thrilled to have chosen Sound Originals for our wedding! From the beginning, we wanted to make sure our photographer captured the moments with family and friends that we would otherwise miss during the festivities of the day. Sound Originals understood that and was so easy to work with. Wedding photography really is an investment but I felt that Dan had both reasonable packages and overwhelmingly positive reviews and experience. I am so glad we booked him for our wedding! Day of, he was easy to work with and incredibly patient with our large families. He gave great directions for photos and also captured many of the natural moments between my husband and me. We had so many incredible photos after our wedding that I can't even pick my top 5 - they are so amazing! I also love his editing style since I found many photographers that had either an overly moody, dark style or were extremely bright and white. I know that my wedding pictures will look great for decades to come (and not look overly edited or styled). Also, the turn-around time was fantastic. We had a collection of initial images the next day (!) and our full album in a few weeks so I was incredibly impressed with the speed during a time when I know he had many other weddings he was working on. The one thing I wish we did differently is hire Dan for a longer time frame and also plan for specific pictures with us and our guests (we don't have enough with our favorite people). Overall we are so happy with the experience and we will treasure these photos forever!

We know you have a budget for your wedding. It can be overwhelming to find vendors that match your style and budget needs. The average price for Portland wedding videography is in the $2000 to $4000 range. There are many talented wedding videography companies in Oregon. Keep in mind, you get what you pay for. Cheaper videographers may have less experience, less reliable equipment and less skills. Your marriage is a once-in-a-lifetime event. It's worth it to invest in a filmmaker who can handle the unique challenges of a wedding to deliver a video you'll absolutely love.
Wedding videographers in Portland, Oregon have different packages and prices. Here are some of the important items that are usually included in videography packages.
Wedding Highlight Video
Couples love our wedding highlight videos! They're the centerpiece of Portland wedding videography packages. Highlight videos are 4 to 7 minutes long. They feature the best moments from your wedding day. Our talented team of editors crafts your moments together into a cinematic film you'll love watching forever. Some couples ask their wedding videographer to film letters, vows, gift exchanges or other emotional moments.
Full Video of Ceremony
Your emotions and excitement will be running high. You may not even remember what your officiant says at your own wedding ceremony. That's why we offer a full video of your ceremony from start to finish. Your wedding videography package will include this video so you can relive your ceremony.
Our filmmakers record the processional, flower girl, bridesmaids and groom walking down the aisle. Of course, we also film the bride walking down the aisle with her father. We use wireless microphones to record high-quality sound.
Full Video of Toasts and Speeches
We record the speeches using professional wireless microphones and our cinema cameras. You'll love looking back at the jokes, tears and memorable moments from your loved ones. The full video includes all of the speeches from start to finish.
Everyone loves aerial videography! Sound Originals is Part 107 Certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. Couples love drone footage in their wedding videography package. Gorgeous sunsets, mountains and landscapes filmed from the air. Drone footage is included at no extra charge in most of our pricing packages.
Number of Wedding Videographers
Our wedding videography pricing includes one or two videographers. We'd love to help you pick the perfect package based on your wedding, guest size, budget and other special considerations for your venue. If you're getting married in a church, two videographers is usually a good idea. That way, we can film the groom's reaction when he sees the bride walking down the aisle for the first time. Many grooms cry! Two videographers will be able to capture his tears.
Raw footage is available in some of our packages. It's usually 3 to 5 hours worth of 4K footage or HD footage.
What makes Sound Originals Photo & Video the top wedding company? For starters, we have the best team of filmmakers in Oregon. We love Portland and its rich diversity of venues to get married. We have the best team of editors, too. Editing is an important part of the process. Using your feedback and input, we'll craft a wedding video that tells your unique story. You'll love it!
My fiance hired Dan to take photos of our proposal, and then our engagement pictures followed. I was blown away by how beautiful the pictures turned out. Dan was incredibly professional, and spent a lot of time with us to make sure we got all the pictures we wanted and had a lot to choose from. I can't express how happy I was with the final product, and our friends and family loved them, too! Plus, we've had to reschedule our wedding for next year, and Dan was so flexible in working with us to make our new date work. Dan is a great talent, and we highly recommend him for your engagement and wedding pictures.

We know many couples ask us why wedding videographers are expensive. Every couple has a different budget. Couples also have different priorities. A wedding videographer might seem like a last-minute splurge or addition to the big day. But when your wedding is over, you'll quickly realize the money you invested in video was the best investment you made. Wedding videography pricing covers the videographer's time. It also covers their equipment, insurance and experience. It takes hours and hours to craft a beautiful video for each and every client. Our team reviews all the footage and assembles the key moments into a cinematic highlight film. We weave together bits and pieces of your day together with music and spoken words. It's truly a masterpiece that's worth every penny.
The cost for a wedding videographer and photographer in Portland varies. Sound Originals offers several package options for couples looking for both wedding photo and video. Our starting package includes up to 6 hours of coverage along with a photographer and videographer. This package is perfect for couples with smaller and more intimate Portland weddings. Every wedding filmmaker sets prices based on his or her experience and skill. You can expect to pay hourly coverage options as well as prices for add-ons like drone footage, full ceremony and toast videos, live-streaming, raw footage and more.
You can sometimes hire a Portland wedding videographer for hourly coverage. We charge $500 per hour if you are hiring one of our team videographers on an hour-by-hour basis.
