I was only saying that we'd agree that video has a higher value. The comment was somewhat tongue in cheek. (grin)

I still contend that bundling photo and video has potential. An n% discount on the dual package might get people over the wall.

Well, I still disagree, since I personally view both mediums as totally different .. and neither of them is more valuable than the other in my mind. But regardless, it's no big deal.

The fact is we're in the one the worst economic downturns the recent history, if you're not already thinking about how your business is going to be affected, you're not paying attention.

I'm with you Travis, it comes down to this.... your house is on fire, you're naturally going to grab the photo albums... not sift through your dvd collection looking for your wedding video. I mean, that's just me. Maybe it's different for wedding videographers. After all, it's the wedding picture that's going to hang over the mantle.

However, with that said, I feel video can evoke emotion more than a still picture. Good video that is.

When you watch a wedding dvd, you get to relive the day. You'll hear and see what happened. With photography, you only see a brief glimpse of a kiss, dance, etc. but you can't relive it like video. Yes, they are two totally different mediums but considering that photography commands a price almost twice as much as video, video has more value PER DOLLAR.

This opinion is not mine, it's from brides I talk with many months after the wedding is over and done with:)

If only they had known this BEFORE the wedding.....
