Your WorksFor those that just want the unedited video files
The packages above are just a snapshot of what I offer, please get in touch to see my full list of options. Scroll down for my contact details below the FAQ.
All my packages are based on the options I've set out below. Tap the options to see more info.
+ ONE VIDEOGRAPHER INSTEAD OF TWO
I still use two or three cameras on the day but additional cameras will be unattended and completely static.
+ CHOOSE THE MOMENTS YOU WANT CAPTURED
You decide how long you need me on your wedding day. One of my popular packages is 'Ceremony Only.' With this option I'm at your wedding from arrival of guests until shortly after the end of the ceremony.
+ JUST HIGHLIGHTS
Receive a USB stick with just the highlights of your day. This option is great if you don't need my full length feature or you want to make your own with my unedited video files from the day. With this option your highlights video will be between 5-7 minutes in length.
+ JUST Full Feature
Receive a USB stick with just the full feature of your day. This option is great if you don't want my highlights video.
+ SELF EDIT
If you'd like to put your own personal touches to your wedding video and edit it yourself using either professional software or more mainstream programs such as iMovie and Windows Movie Maker, all you'll need is an external hard drive so I can give you the entire library of raw footage from the day.
Some couples like this option simply because they receive everything that was professionally captured from their special day. A collection of video clips that can be dipped into at any time.
Please contact me for specific details on what you'll receive. It's helpful to know whether you plan to edit the video files or just keep them as a collection.
+ VINTAGE SUPER 8 CINE FILM
Did you know I can also capture your wedding day on Super 8 cine film? Go to my vintage wedding page here to get some more info, packages and example films. This option isn't in the HD video package and prices list I send in replies to enquiries so be sure to let me know if this is the style you're after. Just so you know, I can even create a HD video and Super 8 film combination package.
If I've edited your films you'll receive a USB stick to store the files. However, if you'd like DVD's as well I can create as many as you need. Production of DVD's will be at additional cost.
You might find that after seeing my packages and prices list you don't see an option to suit the record you want of your day. This isn't a problem because I'm more than happy to listen to your plans and create a bespoke package based on your needs.
+ WHAT'S IN THE FULL FEATURE VIDEO?
This film starts with a short montage set to music. This may include guests arriving at your ceremony venue or bridal/groom preparation depending on what you'd like me to capture. I prefer to let your music preferences guide my choice here.
After the montage the ceremony begins and you'll be able to relive the full event from start to finish. Almost unedited, this part of your film will include multiple camera angles and clear sound of the bride and groom saying their vows as well as any friends and family who have planned to speak.
This will be followed by another montage set to music. The content of this will vary depending on what you've got planned for the occasion.
Speeches will normally follow the montage and these too are kept virtually unedited. They will contain decent sound of all the planned speakers and multiple camera angles will also be included.
What comes before the first dance depends on what you've got planned. However, it's likely to include a few short clips of guests mingling before the bride and groom take to the floor. The first dance is filmed in full and from multiple camera angles. Music will either be added in editing to match what you danced to or if you've got a band I'll make a recording on the night. Either way you'll likely hear sound from the night, just to capture the ooohs and aaaahs that often accompany this romantic part of the day. What follows will depend on what you've got planned but it will most likely include friends and family packing out the dance floor, having the time of there lives!
If you'd like to see an example full length feature, just let me know and I'll send you a link so you can watch one online. Drop me an email or text / call - firstname.lastname@example.org / 07557448526.
+ WHAT'S IN THE HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO?
The highlights video is made for sharing! It includes the most memorable, funny and romantic parts of your day. I put a lot of thought into how it flows and how it looks, all of which is based on the atmosphere of your day. This ensures you receive something completely personalised to you as a couple.
As each video will contain so many different elements from a wedding day it's hard to describe what you'll receive so I recommend checking out some examples if you haven't already done so by going to my contemporary wedding videos page here.
+ HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?
I'm happy to travel anywhere in the world! But just so you know, I usually add a travel charge and any other costs involved in getting to your venue if you're over 50 miles away. It's a very reasonable charge and only covers my fuel and time. I'm within an hours drive from many wedding venue destinations based in and around Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Southampton and Portsmouth.
+ What equipment do you use?
I have three cameras in my kit, suitable for a range of different scanerios, all with large sensors so I can produce life like, cinematic quaility video. For those who need to know details, here's what I use: Sony A7sII, Sony a6000 and Sony VG-30.
For sound I have two small Tascam recorders. They are perfect for discreet placement almost anywhere. I also use a Zoom recorder so I can connect to sound systems, allowing me to capture speeches where microphones are used. During the ceremony I use a lapel mic on the groom which does a beautiful job of capturing both the bride and groom saying their vows.
+ What's your booking process like?
First, you let me know where and when your wedding will take place. I'll tell you if I'm free and we'll talk about your options. I'll hold your date whilst you make your decision or until I receive another enquiry for that date at which point I'll be in touch to let you know another couple is interested and give you first refusal.
If you decide to book, I'll give you a booking form which we'll both sign if you're happy with the terms. I'll then ask for a £350 deposit to secure your booking. I'll request the balance within two months of your wedding, and it's payable no later than 10 days before the day.
+ How long do you take to edit the videos?
That depends on what package you've chosen. For most wedding videos my average is 12 weeks but this can fluctuate throughout the year depending on how busy I am.
