When will I receive the finished video?
Generally about 2-3 months after your wedding date, or after all necessary photos and music have been given to me (whichever comes last). This may sound like a long time, but I always take great pains to produce a meticulous piece of work, and doing so can often take several weeks.
How long will the finished video be?
This depends on the package you select and whether you choose to have a Cinematic style film or a Documentary style film. Cinematic style films generally run 20-30 minutes and also include the raw footage on a separate DVD. Documentary style films generally run anywhere from 60-120 minutes and do not include raw footage.
What equipment do you use?
We use only High Definition (HD) camcorders and DSLRs. In addition, we employ high quality wireless microphones, allowing us to capture the best possible sound. During post-production we use Final Cut Pro, Photoshop, LiveType, and sometimes After Effects or Motion.
Who actually shoots my wedding?
Unless I am ill or have an unexpected personal event that requires my attention, I shoot every wedding. Should I be unable to shoot your wedding, I have a number of skilled videographers whom I can call on to take my place. If no one is able to attend your wedding, you will be issued with a full refund. After 17+ years of producing wedding films, I have had to rely on another videographer only once and have never failed to produce a finished product.
Can you produce my wedding on Blu Ray?
Absolutely! The Extended Package includes a Blu Ray disk, and you can order one for the Basic Package as well.
Do you use harsh lights?
I never use supplemental lighting at the ceremony as it detracts from the sanctity of the event. At many receptions, it is necessary to employ a small light to ensure I am able to produce a quality image.
