In my hunt for affordable photo and video services, I’ve already accumulated a good list. (Read: Affordable = Less than 60K PHP. That’s what I mean by affordable.) I’m only sharing those who reply fast, who seem professional and who have good reviews.
Note: The posted rates are for both of the suppliers’ photo AND video services. For individual services, you can send them an email.
Rates: From 20,000 to 60,000 PHP depending on the inclusions. They’re the most affordable I’ve seen with quality. Their SDE’s have also improved a great deal. We would have availed their package worth 44,000 (Package Diamond).
Inclusions of Package Diamond: 2 videographers, 2 photographers, SDE, STD E-session, album, cinematic highlights
Personal Thoughts: Their SDE’s appealed to us but the cinematic quality seemed darker than others. Even their pictures are not as light and airy as we wanted them to be.
Rates: 50,000, 60,000 and 80,000 PHP. We considered getting the 60,000 (Elite Package) but it doesn’t include cinematic highlights.
Inclusions in the 60,000: 2 Photographers, 3 videographers, E-session, Album, SDE, raw wedding video.
Personal Thoughts; We only considered Kreativemotion because this was referred by the editor we really want to get. (He’s leaving for the US so he can’t do our wedding.) Their photos and videos are okay. We decided not to get them because the video we’ll get is raw. (We’d rather get the next one on the list)
Rate: 40,000 to 70,000 PHP depending on the inclusions. We would have gotten the Ever After Package worth 60,000.
Inclusions of Ever After: 3 Photographers, 3 Videographers, E-Session, SDE, Cinematic Highlights, STD video, AVP of E-session, Wedding Album, Prenup Album
Personal Thoughts: We really wanted to get them but due to budget constraints, we didn’t. (sad face) Ms. Jane is also soooo nice even if we just corresponded through email.
Rates: 55,000 PHP
Inclusions: 3 Videographers, 3 Photographers, SDE, E-session, Album, Frame, Edited Video
Personal Thoughts: This is one of our shortlisted supplier cause their deal is really good. We didn’t get them because their SDE’s seem too dramatic for us.
Rates: 25,000, 57,000 and 75,000 depending on the number of videographers, photographers and inclusions. The most ideal affordable package is worth 57,000 PHP.
Inclusions of 57,000: 3 Photographers, 2 Videographers, SDE, E-session, AVP of E-session, Album, Thank you cards.
Personal Thoughts: We just don’t feel that they are the right P/V for us.
Rates: 30,000, 40,000 and 50,0000 PHP depending on the inclusions.
Inclusions in the 50,000: 3 Videographers, 2 Photographers, E-session, SDE, Love Story, Album, Wedding Portrait
Personal Thoughts: They really offer great value for money but we don’t like their SDE’s. Their OOT is also pricier compared to our chosen P/V.
Rates: 40,000 and 55,000 PHP.
Inclusions in the 55,000: 2 Photographers, 2 Videographers with editor, SDE, E-session, album, AVP of e-session and growing up and edited video. (They also include some technical sounding equipment)
Personal Thoughts: They’re prompt to reply but we just don’t feel they’re the right P/V.
Rates: 37,500 PHP
Inclusions: 2 Photographers, 2 Videographers with Editor, SDE, E-session, album, cinematic highlights.
Personal Thoughts: We chose them to be our photographer. Their individual photography service is only 20,000 PHP with e-session and album. We don’t like their SDE because it feels generic so we searched for a separate videographer.
Rates: 40,000 PHP
Inclusions: 2 Photographers, 3 Videographers with editor and PA, Album, SDE, AVP of E-session and growing up.
Personal Thoughts. We chose Cupcake Cinema because their SDE’s have good narratives and minimal dramatic shots. We only got their video services because we prefer another supplier’s photos. For only 25,000 PHP we have 3 videographers with editor, PA, SDE and Cinematic Highlights.
