PACKAGE ITEMS KEY

Full Day Coverage starts from before the bride puts on her dress to cutting the cake at the end of the night and beyond.  I offer unlimited hours because I don't want to miss anything!  I make sure to stay for all the activities at the reception and get tons of dancing.

The Highlights Video is a short creative video of the wedding with music which is what you see on my website. My Highlights Video isn't a "trailer" of your wedding but a whole movie in itself, telling the story of the day with all the best moments from beginning to end.  I believe weddings have the perfect flow (the anticipation of getting ready, the climax of the ceremony, and then the celebration of the reception) so I edit the videos in chronological order, unlike a lot of videographers who edit the clips randomly together.  I also believe good music really brings out the emotion of the day and so I don't use a lot of voiceovers (except for the vows) which I find to be cheesy and over-dramatic.  I have found that 6-7 minutes is the perfect length.  Not too long, not too short, and it includes all the highlights of the day.  If you are most interested in the Highlights Video and don't mind that the full day video isn't edited, then the Highlights Package is the right package for you.  

Online Sharing I provide your Highlights Video on a personal page on my website and on Vimeo.  I also post it on my blog and Facebook page.  You will be able to easily share the video with your family and friends with a link and by posting it on your Facebook page.  

The Video Footage on Hard Drive is all the unedited video footage on a hard drive which is easy to watch on the computer.  The video clips are divided into folders (The Details, Her Preparations, His Preparations, The Ceremony, Photo Shoot, First Dance, Toasts, Parents Dances, Bouquet Toss, Cutting the Cake, etc) for easy navigation.  I shoot with the unedited video in mind so that the clips are clean and easy to watch.  

One Cinematographer I offer packages with one cinematographer (me of course!) because I rarely use my second shooter's footage in the Highlights Video as I am able to get all the shots in exactly my shooting style myself.  Because it isn't completely necessary to have a second shooter, it's a great way to save money.  Also, it's less obtrusive to have just one videographer instead of two.  Examples of videos with one cinematographer:
Beau + Allexa    Brooke + John      Alyssa + Nick      Kristin + Nick     Lauren + Brian

Two Cinematographers Two cinematographers is recommended if the bride and groom are getting ready at different locations (option to have a second shooter just for preparations- $175) or if you would like two camera angles during the ceremony.  Examples of videos with two cinematographers:  Nick + Bora     Kristina + Sean     Ashley + Blake    Jenny + Dan

The Edited Ceremony and Toasts are professional edits of two of the most important video/audio moments.  Both camera angles are edited together and audio from the venue/handheld mic is captured and synced with the video for the best audio quality.

The Feature Film on DVD is a seamlessly edited video of all the footage of the day with high quality audio and divided into chapters (The Details, Her Preparations, His Preparations, The Ceremony, Photo Shoot, First Dance, Toasts, Parents Dances, Bouquet Toss, Cutting the Cake, etc).  It is between 1-2 hours long and is created with chapter menus for easy navigation on DVD.  My DVD cases are custom designed to the colors and style of your wedding and are created in the highest quality.  With the DVD, I also provide all the videos in digital format on a flash drive.  This acts as a back up, a way to put the videos on your computer (and digital is better quality than DVDs), and for when DVDs go extinct.
