This area of the website answers some of the most common questions we are asked. Please e-mail or call us if you have questions that are not answered here.
There are many things that relatives could provide for your wedding day, but with all due respect, it does not mean that they will necessarily do a good job of them. Home movies are a world apart from professional wedding videos. Our cameramen have many years of experience in capturing wedding day memories. We have heard so many horror stories about relatives running out of batteries at crucial moments, not having enough tape and so on, surely it is just not worth the risk. Besides, "Uncle Joe" is a guest at your wedding and surely he should be free to enjoy your day.
Still photography will capture highlights and moments, but only video enables you to relive the entire range of emotions that you felt during your wedding day. As the years go by, only video will allow you to recreate the sights and sounds of your special day in glorious detail.
Yes, in fact we shoot everything in digital format. We film and edit everything on professional digital equipment, and the quality shows!
Will our wedding be available on DVD?
Yes, of course. DVD is a much higher quality format than VHS, and it will last longer too. Whilst most companies charge a substantial premium for this service, we include it in all our packages as standard. Be sure to check this when making comparisons!
Can I choose the background music for our video?
We are more than happy to accept your choices of any songs that have special meaning to you.
How long will the completed video run for?
When will the finished video be delivered to us?
Can we be involved in the editing?
Can we see examples of your work?
Yes, of course. There are some samples on this website, and we will be happy to send you a DVD of our work too. Please use the contact page to submit the details of your event. If we are not already booked for that date we will send you a full information package which includes samples of our work.
Yes of course you can, we just ask for a small additional fee for this service. However, please bear in mind that the editing process is designed to highlight all the best aspects of the recorded footage and by contrast you will be receiving raw, unedited footage.
Will your cameramen be professional in appearance?
Absolutely, rest assured that we will blend in with other guests. Our professional cameramen take great pride in presenting themselves with the utmost class, and if you have any special requests they will respect your wishes and happily comply with the dress code you desire.
How customized will our video be?
Your video will be completely unique, creatively produced for you! We are not a production line for wedding videos. Just as you are a unique couple, your wedding video will be uniquely created for you.
Yes, a deposit of one-third of the total cost is required at the time of booking. The second one-third balance is required one week before the event. The final one-third balance is due at time of delivery of the finished product. The deposit is non-refundable.
I am nervous about cameras, can you reassure me?
You’re certainly not the first person to tell us this, so don’t worry. We are experts at being unobtrusive so you will hardly notice we are there. Remember, you are the star of the "show" and our job is to make you both look as good as possible so that you can be excited at reliving the day with your friends and family.
I believe that our ceremony location restricts video taping inside, is that a problem?
Will you attend the rehearsal?
Should we provide the cameramen with a meal?
Since we will be working long hours during your wedding day, it is very much appreciated when a meal is provided for the personnel involved in filming your wedding day. The alternative is for us to have to leave the reception at some point in order to eat, which we would rather not do. Bear in mind that there will likely be other professional service providers in attendance, such as a DJ and photographer, so it would be wise to notify your caterers of the total number of such personnel well in advance.
Can you interview some of our guests?
Absolutely! All we ask is that you notify us beforehand with the names of specific guests you would like us to interview. Generally, it is not our custom to interview guests unless a specific request is made.
How early do we need to book your services?
Simply stated, the earlier the better, as dates fill up quickly and we only undertake one wedding on any given day. Bookings are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
We encode all of our DVD’s in NTSC, 30 frames per second, MPEG-2 format. The sound is high resolution Dolby 2 channel. These formats have proven to be an excellent balance of providing the highest quality possible with the most efficient cost to you.
I have family members that live overseas and I want to send them a copy of the DVD. Can I get my video in PAL version?
Yes of course. Just let us know in advance and we’ll produce the DVD in PAL.
Although we are based in South Florida, we have traveled all over the state of Florida. From Key West north to Jacksonville. Please do not hesitate to contact us about your wedding in a different area of the country, or a destination wedding. We are happy to travel, subject to availability.
