The cost varies because every wedding is different and every couple has different ideas, desires and budgets.
Often video is an afterthought, once you've locked in the venue, celebrant, photographer, hairdressers, invitations, etc. Budgets are usually quite tight so one of my goals is to make a wedding video that's affordable.
I keep the costs down by shooting most weddings as a solo operator. You are welcome to have additional cameramen, it just adds a bit to the price.
The idea of the 5 minute movie is that it's a great length for quickly showing an extended mix of friends on Facebook or YouTube.
The longer movies generally run from 20 to 60 minutes, based on how much filming happened on the day, how long an actual movie you would prefer, and how much of the ceremony and speeches are included. For example, some brides want the entire ceremony, or entire speeches included, which will obviously make the movie a lot longer.
The reason I target 20-30 minutes duration, is because it is the optimum length, in my opinion, for family and friends to watch a movie of your day and get all the best highlights, without having to sit through really long speeches or a really long ceremony.
However, if you want those longer elements included in the movies, there is no extra cost.
Ways to save money: Eg. Drop the 5 minute movie. Reduce filming time. Just get the raw vision.
A popular cost strategy now is for you to quote your budget. Tell me what you're prepared to spend: eg. $500, $1,000, $1,500, $2,000 or any number in between or beyond, and I'll work out exactly what I can do for you.
Here is an example of a 20 minute movie, edited from 12 hours of filming on the day (10am to 10pm):
