Videographer Frequently Asked Questions
1. What makes you different from other local videographers? Why should someone hire you?
We make every shot count. Our videographers are artist, not just a video technician. We can incorporate our Big Screen Projector where during the reception we are using your ceremony video as a background for some of the reception scenes. For instance when the bride is dancing with her father, you’ll see the bride & her father walking down the aisle. We also use cameras that are very good in low light situations so that we don’t have to blind you or your guests with bright lights. We understand the balance between capturing everything, but yet being as unobtrusive as possible.
That depends on your package. We always bring a 2nd camera as a back up, but if you’ve only purchased one camera for your Wedding, than the 2nd camera won’t be edited in the final video.
We use both Traditional Video Cameras and DSLRs(a camera that normally shoots still photos). Our Traditional video camera is Canon XF 305 which is a broadcast quality camera. The DSLRs we use range from the Canon 5D mark iii to the Canon 7d mark ii to the Canon 70d. The important thing in regards to picture quality is the lenses. We like to use low light lenses so that we do not have to use a harsh video light.
It varies with the camera & the situation. We use lenses that are good in low lighting situations so that in most instances we don’t have to use a bright light and in most situations do no use a light at all.
We do both cinematic & documentary with creativity. Our Love Stories though tend to be more on the cinematic style. The Highlight Video is a Cinematic style, whereas the Long Version is more of a documentary style.
We offer a Love Story where we follow you on a date, do interviews and a music video to a song of your choice. We show this at the Wedding reception with our Big Screen Projector and when using our DJs, we’ll play it with our 1000 watt Yamaha surround sound speakers so it will be like you’re at the movie theatre.
Yes, if you decide not to do the editing we can take $150 off.
You determine that during the booking. Our videographers only work for us.
The raw footage on DVD is available for $50.
We can video the rehearsal and dinner, but there is a charge to that. With over 2765 weddings we can deal with any situation and we do get there early the day of the wedding. We as any professional are paid according to our time.
If the Videographer is booked on your wedding for 6 hours or longer we ask that you either provide a meal or allow him 45 minutes to go get something to eat.
On All Inclusive Packages it’s 1/3rd down, then a middle third payment, and the balance being due 1 week before the wedding. For individual services its’ Half down and Balance due one week before wedding
