Videography Questions

How long have you been filming weddings for?
I have been capturing love stories for over 6 years.

What is the difference between you and other videographers?  Why should I choose you?
I come from a cinematographer background and use that style when shooting weddings.  I’m not your standard leave a tripod in a room and press record.  I take pride in my work, and I create each video to fit the couples’ style and edit the video footage professionally and artistically.

Do you bring an additional shooter to cover more video footage and extra angles?
Absolutely yes.  It is not possible for one person to cover all angles of your wedding (ex: like the father/daughter dance and the reaction on mom’s face), and since we don’t want to miss a single precious moment of your day, all of our wedding packages come with 2 videographers.

What kind of camera, lighting, and audio equipment do you use?
I use

  • 2 Canon 5D mark 3 cameras (high-end HD camera that records high-quality video footage)
  • Steadicam (motion stabilizer camera that keeps shot still when I’m following the activity)
  • Arri Lighting kit (reflects light so couples and guests look their very best on camera in every angle)
  • tascam recorder (wireless recorders are hooked up )
  • wireless senhierser microphones (ensures high-quality sound when the most memorable vows and touching speeches are read)

What is the point of having my wedding filmed when I already have a photographer?
Your wedding will be one day in a lifetime, and after that, your wedding is a memory.  Having your wedding filmed allows you to relive that moment of new love and excitement again through the active video footage, the touching speeches, and the emotional music.  No photographer or florist or DJ or event planner or caterer can do that for you and bring that back for you.  It is also a wonderful gift to share with your loved ones who could not attend your wedding.

How long will the final video be?
The trailer will be 2-5 minutes.  The wedding video recap would be 20-30 minutes.

When will the final version of my video be completed?
Within 30 days.

What is your editing process?
This process includes watching all of the footage to carefully select the memorable moments that best represent your wedding day.  I also add music to set the mood of the movie with input from the couple, and I professionally edit the raw footage and spend time with color-correction, post-production, and processing.

Do you offer HD-ready video?
Yes
