Wedding Videography

The Bride & Groom's Page

Purpose
To create a living memory of your happiest day so that you can relive it and share it with your existing family plus your future children and grandchildren. To capture those moments, sounds and movements that you missed. To help you remember your vows and the community to which you have committed yourself.

Style
Do you like old Hollywood movies that were made during the big studio days when acting performances were most important? Do you appreciate editing that is subtle and consistent? I shoot with up to 4 cameras at once so as to be unobtrusive yet well covered. My gear is small and portable so I can move quickly and fit it anywhere.

Skill
Do you respect a film school education from LMU and AFI? Do you understand that a photographer is as different from a videographer as a bride is different from a groom - then I'm the videographer for you.

Substance
Your video is delivered to you electronically in High Definition so it will look incredible. You can download it to any of your devices. You can also have Blu-Ray or DVD copies made.

Here's a 10 minute summary of my work.

Rehearsal Review, Bridal Preparations and Romantic Moments are interchangeable.

Every Wedding Video is a 3-Act Story

Act 1

Rehearsal Review
This sets the scene for everyone’s transformation from casual Friday to formal Saturday! This is the first time your families will meet each other and you won't want to miss these casual and funny moments! Special toasts & attendant gifts at dinner are worth recording too. This is set to music.


Bridal Preparations
It’s transformation time! My coverage begins when yours does! (nothing risque). As a woman I can stay with the bride and maids as they get ready so I can capture everything as it happens. I can catch the groom’s preparation if he’s nearby or you can hire my 2nd cameraman. This is set to music

Anticipation
Beginning about an hour before the ceremony officially starts, I gather scenes of of guests arriving, signing the guest book, bridal party hanging around, decorations being placed, flowers being pinned on etc.. This is set to music.

 

Act 2

Full Ceremony
I use one manned camera and two or three strategically placed remote cameras for the most complete yet unobtrusive coverage possible. The groom and minister wear wireless lapel mics so we can clearly hear all the words.

Reception Highlights & Review
I’ll capture shots of you and your families, guests mingling & dancing, children playing, waiters serving, people toasting & laughing….No detail is overlooked! You’ll be able to enjoy the party all over again and see the things you missed. An amusing time-lapse recording of the whole reception usually appears here too. The Review is set to music.

 

Act 3

Romantic Moments
This montage is all about the love between Bride & Groom. While you pose for your world-class photographer, I follow nearby and capture stylized shots as you kiss, hug, hold and smile. Mere photos cannot capture a glance, a giggle or the length of his gaze they way video can! This is set to music.

Wedding Day Review

This is the video that gets all the glamour and special treatment. The best footage from throughout the wedding day is recut into this final video segment. Add a few photos from your honeymoon if you wish! This is set to your favorite romantic song.

Sweet Dream

This is an abbreviated version of your whole wedding celebration underscored with instrumental music and natural sounds. It includes the vows. This runs about 15 minutes in length.

Optional Extras

Photo Montage . . . . $50/minute
Pictures are touched-up and edited with nice backgrounds and set to your chosen song. This is a show that you screen before a large audience. Requires 2 weeks advanced planning if you wish to show it at the party. 4 minutes minimum. 50 pictures minimum.

Motion Picture Show . . . . . . $100/ minute
Pictures are carefully touched up, color-corrected and sometimes colorized. This is a very polished, carefully edited show set to your favorite songs. You can request a few changes after the first cut is finished. If you want to change the music or tweak a lot of little things then be advised that my editing rate becomes an additional $50/hr Requires at least 4 days advanced planning if you wish to show it at the service. 6 minutes minimum. 70 pictures minimum. Video clips optional.

Photo Loop . . . . . . $20/minute
Pictures are cleaned up and color-corrected a little bit and then laid down over a nice background with cinematic transitions. There is no music with this video because it is intended to run as a looping (or repeating) presentation on a screen during a Viewing Service or Reception Luncheon where people can come look at it when they want to. In this case, you will surely not want to hear the same song playing over and over again. 4 minutes minimum. 30 pictures minimum.

Homespun Menu:
Pre-Ceremony with 1-camera = $85/hr
Ceremony with 3-cameras = $175 flat
Reception with 2-cameras = $100/hr
Footage delivered to your hard drive a few days later. You are the editor.
