OUR BASE PACKAGE
As one of the top Wedding Videography companies in the US, we set the bar when it comes to filming your wedding! We have perfected our Base Package, which has been featured in “The Knot” magazine. It includes what they quoted as the 5 “Must Have” items when it comes to your wedding video. Unlike some companies, our package includes the full Ceremony, Grand Entrance, First Dance, Toasts and Cake Cutting. Also included are the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances. You would think all wedding videography companies would include these items. Nope. We know from our own experience that there is no barrier to entry when it comes to wedding videography and unfortunately, you don’t always get what you pay for. We know other companies who charge far more than we do often times do not provide you with your whole ceremony from start to finish. Often times they provide you with “ONLY” a short Highlight film. That’s it. Our Base package has been tailored over several years to give you exactly what you need, then allows you to add items that may be less common, or more specific for each wedding.
Recently I was surprised to find out from several other top companies only provided one microphone for recording the ceremony and toast audio. I was shocked! What happens if something goes wrong with that microphone? What happens if there is a malfunction? You simply must have back up sound. It is extremely important. We hear microphone problems consistently at weddings, so we make sure this will never happen to you!
What we use? We use two lavaliere microphones, and we also tap into the microphones being used for the ceremony and reception, plus we use boom microphones on our cameras. This is 3 levels of audio for safety – we want to ensure that you can hear everything clearly!
We are constantly educating ourselves on the latest technologies. Many of our team work as professional Directors of Photography for feature films, television shows and music videos. Their knowledge of the camera is vast, and knowing how to capture the best image is our specialty. For video we use professional neutral density filters that allow the camera to perform better in extreme sunlight. We use stabilization equipment such as motorized gimbals that give your wedding a true cinematic feeling.
When it comes to your wedding we don’t go cheap on our cameras. We have the best. We know some companies only use (believe it or not) 1 or 2 cameras for your wedding day. There is no way you can get the best angles with only 2 cameras.
What do we use? We use our exclusive 4 camera set up for the ceremony which includes a high wide angle, a wide angle from the side, and cameras on each side of the set up insuring we see the bride and groom’s faces. This is so important considering a walk down the isle is around 8 seconds long.
We make sure we use more cameras (manned and unmanned) so we do not have to dive into an aisle during a ceremony. Less movement is best, you do not want your guests to remember how disruptive the cameraman was. They are there to enjoy "you" not feel like they are in the middle of a photoshoot. By doing this we can remain relaxed and steady by our cameras because we are confident we have all the angles covered.
We will also do a similar set up for the grand entrance, first dance, toasts and reception items. This ensures we don’t miss anything!
What happens if a camera breaks down? Yes, we include back up equipment with us on site. This is mostly unheard of when it comes to other companies.
