the prices. Below are the options and a description of what we do to obtain
this type of footage for your video.
Bridal Preparations -
We tastefully video tape the bride getting
ready, putting on her earrings, necklace, garter, dress, and veil. We videotape
the father's reaction to first seeing his "little girl" in her wedding dress.
As the photographer takes pictures of the bride, her mother, the bridesmaids,
maid of honor, and more, we video tape the memory using the "cinemagraphic"
style of videography. We also will go to the groom and videotape his
preparations, such as putting on his cuff links, jacket, shoes, and getting his
boutonnière pined on and getting wished "good-luck" by his best man. Although we
need to pose a few shots, it takes only a few moments and we do not conflict or
take much time away from the photographer. The
is where the bride is in her regular clothes and slowly turns around three
times. Later when the bride is dressed in her gown, she stands in the same
spot in the room and turns around the same way and as slowly as before and
through the magic of editing we make it appear as if the bride wasn't ready one
second and "poof" the magic wand turns her into her wedding gown and she's ready
for the wedding.
Growing Up Montages -
Many brides love having their
photographs professionally scanned into the computer. We remove red eye,
recolor and "freshen" the photos from when the bride and groom were babies.
Many brides only use pictures from the groom and herself, others use pictures
with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, yet others use pictures of grandparents,
parents, brothers and sisters. For the bridal photo montage we ask for up
to 60 photographs, add titles (words you choose, or we can chose them for you),
cross fading between each picture, instrumental music from our royalty paid
music collection, or you can provide your own music. Sample
Additional Ceremony Camera
If you require 3 or 4
camcorders at your wedding, we can offer you this extra coverage. Many
brides ask us "Why would someone need 3 or 4 camcorders." This
allows us to have our cameras focused on up to 4 different events or people at
the same time. For example, we have been able to get the emotion of the mother
of the bride as she watches her daughter walk down the aisle on her fathers arm.
What are the first two cameras doing?. One is fixed on the groom as he watches
his bride walk down the aisle and we can see the change in emotions as he
watches. The other camera is on the bride. The fourth camera makes a nice
wide shot to see everything at once. We edit and cut back and forth from
each camera to show the emotion of the moment. We have samples of one, two
and three camera weddings.
This is our #1 add on!
Brides receive a "highlight" segment of their wedding, set to music from the
ceremony or the reception (we take outputs from
church and DJ soundboards so you can hear the music that was actually played on
this special day). But what makes this video re-cap
different is that we use footage from the rehearsal in black and white and then
show how it actually happened at the wedding in color. It's like having a mini-recap of your
wedding in 3-5 minutes. Many brides and mothers-of- the-bride have said
this is their favorite part of the wedding video.
Love Story -
We interview the bride and groom separately
and then together to find out personal things about their love story, where did
you meet, how did you know he/she was the one. What makes him/her special
to you. We have a list of specific questions that the couple are given in
advance and then a few questions they are asked, not being able to prepare for
the answer. We want both the in-depth answer and the spur of the moment
Cinemagraphic Bridal Portrait -
We videotape your
outdoor bridal portrait that your photographer is taking, at a date weeks in
advance of the wedding day. Done with permission of your photographer. We tastefully
and very creatively capture the time you spend with your photographer as he/she
takes your formal portraits. The experience is set to romantic music and
is done in slow motion, black and white and we use the cinemagraphic style of
Wedding Shower Coverage -
We attend your bridal shower
arriving about 45 minutes before your guests arrive. We videotape the
emotion, the atmosphere and the event. This is a way to document this very
special event, leading up to your special day.
Video Projection Rental
- Many brides want to show their Photo
Montage on a large screen at the reception. We have both. If you
choose to show your Photo Montage at the reception or rehearsal dinner we can
set up our projector for you. It also rents separately from our other services.
We have the adaptor to hook it up to your lap top, DVD or VCR. Call us for
more information. (We have a 9 foot screen available when WE do
the set up and showing)
