Highlight Film- A wedding highlight video is usually a 3 to 6 minute short film that highlights the best moments of the wedding day in a non linear fashion meaning the video focuses on story telling, thus, footage & speeches are sometimes shown out of chronological order to tell an engaging story. Is quite common for clients to share their highlight video on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram and other social networks to family and friends. The shorter highlight video is quite often popular for showing to friends, while immediate family members and close friends might want watch the full-length wedding video.These kinds of videos create a cinematic style to increase the emotional impact through use of slow motion and transition effects, creative camera angles and dramatic music. It has that 'wow' factor to tell your story in a unique way.
Documentary Film- Segments are edited as they occur to preserve continuity. This style of editing produces a polished documentation of the day as it unfolds. This type of film includes the ceremony, speeches, first dance and any other large important moments through the day, captured in full.
How are you different from other wedding videographers?
A.Starting out as a photographer for so long I was able to watch what goes on at weddings, all the little things that make it hard to portray in an image. I knew there and then that I had to start offering video as well. Video can capture emotions in ways that sometimes can be overlooked in an image. And that is where audio comes in.
We love it when couples write their own vows, when the officiant says something really profound about how they met or when there are speeches during the reception. We then use all the amazing audio we capture to tell the story of your wedding.
What is included in the final product?
A.All packages include a highlight film which showcases your day using audio and video to display a true love story.
Depending on the time frame you ask us to be at your wedding, your video could include your entire ceremony from start to finish and the full toasts, as well as any other moments that we know you would want to see. The full documentary style edit can be added on to any package.
Do you film all types of Weddings?
A.Love is love and that's all that matters to us!
We film all types of love whether that be different cultures, religions, etc.
How will I receive my film?
A.We provide all our highlight and documentary style films to you via an online link. Here you can watch your film back via phone, computer and even TV. It also has the major feature of being able to share this with all your family friends so they too can watch and download the films.
What kind of equipment do you use?
A.Equipment really should be my middle name. Buying the latest gear is my major fault......or can be considered having the best of the best for my clients. Depends on how you look at things.
My Cameras shoot in 4K, the highest quality currently available on the consumer market. During the Wedding we have 4 cameras going. One faced at the groom from the side away and unobtrusive, the second facing the bride again away to the side s not to be obtrusive during the ceremony. The second will be at the end of the aisle behind the last row of guests. This is done again so as not to disturb your guests. Filming your wedding is important but we also want your guests to feel the emotion of the day and be present in the moment without having to peer over a tripod. The 4th camera is our roving camera. This is what captures those smooth motions of you walking dow the aisle, the guests emotions as they see the first kiss, the parents tears as they give away their child. The roving camera is not on a tripod but controlled by me your videographer and it goes wherever is needed to capture your wedding in full.
Do you use big bright lights?
A.No. Our cameras have excellent optical chips, and lenses that can capture video as low as one lux. That is the same as shooting by candlelight. We use the optics of the camera to obtain the maximum quality video under the given conditions. In some rare occasions we use small, camera mounted lights to add to the ambient light, but only where permitted. Some locations such as churches, do not allow using any lighting at all. We are well versed in all the limitations of different locations, and in getting the best video captured by our professional video cameras.The only time this really can change is if I use audio from something like the first dance or such for
Do you give us the raw footage?
A.We are happy to give you the raw footage, but we’re pretty sure that you aren’t going to want it. Giving you the raw footage is like a baker giving you the ingredients for your cake but not baking it.
We shoot in a format that uses 12 bit colour ProRes RAW format (not just a basic video file that a phone can produce such as MP4) that requires specialised software to playback. Please let us know before your wedding if you are wanting to purchase the RAW footage.
Can my family and friends order DVD/BluRays?
A.Of course! We offer two ways of your friends and family ordering your wedding DVD. Either you can order all the DVDs for everyone (and we will offer a discount on the discs if 10 or more are ordered at one time) or we can place the DVDs up for sale on our site so your friends and family can order a disc themselves.
Our footage is filmed in 4K so we offer both BluRays which can host such large files as well as DVD which will have a version of your video with High Definition footage rather than 4K Ultra HD.
