Hi, I'm new to this forum and looking for some advice. I'm a wedding photographer that shoots the odd video in my spare time, nothing serious, just of my kids etc. A full frame canon dslr is my weapon of choice as I already have it for photography.

I would like to take my videography further and maybe venture into weddings in the future. I'm already familiar with the wedding environment and have a good friend who's a wedding photographer that said I can accompany him to weddings to get experience.

As I've not taken this seriously in the past I haven't bothered with any editing software I've just messed around with movie maker. I know that I now need to invest in something better so this is what has brought me here. I only want to buy once, meaning I don't want to buy something basic them as I progress have to upgrade to something different. On the other hand I don't really want to jump in head first and spend 600 in case I decide it's not for me after 6 months.

Can somebody please recommend some editing software that is capable, but maybe not the highest end of the price range.
