Hiring a Videographer
More than photographs, a wedding video will truly capture the spirit and magic of your big day. Thanks to advancements in digital technology, the quality of these videos has improved dramatically over the years. Instead of using the large, analog (VHS) cameras that were standard 10 years ago, most videographers (including me) now shoot with small, discreet digital video cameras.
Also, you'll get a video mastered in DVD format, ensuring better picture quality and a shelf life of 100 years (as opposed to 15 years with a VHS tape). What can you expect your video to look like? Here's an overview of your options!
A New Twist: Documentary-Style Video
Want a wedding video that plays like a stylish HBO documentary or an independent film? Some videographers hold degrees in filmmaking or broadcast journalism, and they'll strive to shoot your wedding like a "fly on the wall," thoughtfully recording the event with a storyteller's understanding of real, dramatic moments as well as a cinematographer's eye for beautiful images.
These pros also use state-of-the-art editing software to create stylish, cinematic effects like split-screen images, panoramic letterbox views or turning certain scenes to sepia or black-and-white (to get that vintage look)
You'll pay more for a documentary-style videographer, but that's because he or she will spend 30 to 60 hours editing your wedding and artfully arranging the best scenes into a comprehensive, fun-to-watch film.
Stop-Motion Films: (See Mallory & Josh)
Depending on the wedding package you order, you will get between 150 and 500 proofs back. But the truth of the matter is that on your wedding day, we take anywhere from 1,000-2,500 pictures. You as the customer never get to see most of those. We wanted to come up with a fun way to give back to our clients and offer them all of their images, in a cinematic way. Enter, the 'stop motion' film!!! A stop motion film takes every single image from your wedding day, in very short increments, set to music in a film. Keep in mind, because there are so many images, this is all of your photos unedited and not retouched. See example from Mallory & Josh's wedding day below!
