Beautiful films that tell a love story or what the day means to the couple are always valuable and exciting. Wedding videos can be full in that they cover the wedding ceremony in entirety, including speeches and everything in between or they can be short just highlighting the couple as individuals and as one. Your preferences should guide you in making the best videos you will enjoy years after the wedding.

Even though everyone attending the wedding is important in one way or another, the bride seems to always take the day. All eyes are usually on the bride and as the bride you need to be at your best in the wedding video. A little preplanning can go a long way in ensuring that your wedding videographer accounts for every frame.

Tip 1 – Let your videographer know about lighting in the wedding venue and if possible let them visit the venue before the wedding. This is a simple way of ensuring that they are able to capture the clearest images possible in relation to the lighting conditions.

Tip 2 – For indoor venues, make sure that your videographer is conversant with low wattage camera features so that he is able to diffuse light and spread it evenly for best video results. The lights should be turned up for special moments such as cake cutting, toasts, garter removal and bouquet tossing.

Tip 3 – To make outdoor wedding videos stunning, ensure that you are not in direct sunlight as a couple because this only washes out the vibrant colors making your wedding video dull. Consider canopies and shady areas that allow some light, but keeps direct sunlight out.

Tip 4 – Avoid chewing gum and other habits that do not come out well on video. It also helps to request that the bridal party keeps off such habits; provide mints if need be to avoid chewing gums moments. If you are working with a professional wedding videographer, you do not have to worry about unsightly eating, smoking or gum chewing moments on your video because they know best not to record such.

Tip 5 – Be as natural as you can and request same ease from the bridal party. Reacting to camera presence is not advisable so avoid turning back on camera or waving and smiling too hard when the camera rests on you. It is advisable that you look at the photographer rather than the videographer unless otherwise requested when you are not very sure of where to look.

Tip 6 – For unobtrusive shots during the vow exchange, face each other as a couple or face the guests rather than the officiator of the wedding. If this proves to be a challenge, then your videographer should use small hidden cameras in strategic ceremony location areas to get multiple camera angles he can incorporate when editing the video.

Tip 7 – If the ceremony has key moments such as unity candle lighting or sand ceremony, make sure that you stand directly in front of a vase or candle to avoid blocking. Exchange of rings should be done in a similar manner.

Raleigh wedding videography can be done to match your personal preferences in terms of length and what needs to be covered. Choose an experienced Raleigh wedding videographer to get quality footage you will enjoy years down the line.

Wedding Photography / Video – Simple But Important Information to Optimize Your Destination Wedding

Comments Off on Wedding Photography / Video – Simple But Important Information to Optimize Your Destination Wedding

By Roger J Curley

Sure it’s OK to bring your own video camcorder to your Dream Destination Wedding; but before you assign a Loved One to be stuck watching your entire Dream Wedding through the camera’s tiny peep-hole… Consider This!

More often than not, that Loved one is not a professional and may not even get the thing turned on and recording, I’ve also seen numerous times the battery dies out or the memory chip runs out of space part way into the Ceremony.

The times the video is recorded, the tiny microphones built into most camcorders, iPhones or tablets can’t clearly pick up the softly spoken personal, heartfelt vows unless the camcorder is placed Obtrusively close to the Ceremony which also spoils the otherwise fabulous High Resolution still shots being taken.

Most couples tend to speak their Heartfelt Vows in a soft intimate voice, so using a Clip-on Wireless microphone ensures the best clarity while the Minister’s Ceremony, Conch Shell Blessing, Flute Blessings & the wonderful sound of the ocean is picked up perfectly with an Audiophile quality microphone. We highly recommend covering up this mic or any other obtrusive gear that needs to be placed in the Ceremony view with a mix of tropical flowers & foliage.

One consideration that seems to get overlooked with every wedding that does not include video is, the Ceremony Audio is often way more precious than most would expect! The Heartfelt vows, the quivering emotional little voice, sniffing back a tear, the relief of the “I do’s”, not to mention when couples have worked out special things to say adding to the vows and making truly a “one of a kind” True Love Story–like this Amazing line – “I only wish I could kiss you for each time my heart beats”. Wow, that’s sure to raise the bar for the ‘Romantically Challenged!’

Also consider whether you would like to have your otherwise grand professional pictures of the darling wedding couple with the priceless Destination Island views sort of ‘compromised’ by having a bevy of camera toting guests in the picture!

Oh sure, it’s cute to have Auntie Eagle-Eye workin’ a tablet video camera only to be forever captured as a headless wedding embodiment… just an iPad with a body in every picture at just about every camera angle – This is highly distracting. Hire a professional wedding videographer and let All your loved ones enjoy your Destination Dream Wedding on the Beach… and get better still shot photography as well!

A lot of still shots will capture all the honorary guests, whether or not they are hiding behind a camera or worse, the huge tablet video camera. If you would rather see their lovely faces instead of ‘camera holding human tri-pods’… Let your guest know they should take only an occasional shot & not stand there the entire ceremony behind a camera.

Be very aware of what the ‘not cheap’ Professional Photographer is shooting at so as not to compromise otherwise priceless pix with a highly distracting ‘Scene Killer’ view of an amateur videography “artist”.

It’s fine to have a loved one shoot video, but they need to become more of a ‘Camera Crew’ & less of a guest in attendance. They will need to coordinate their shots with the Professional Photographer – this way they both get great shots.

When getting both video and still shot photography, inquire about having a Photo Fusion Video created from the enhanced High Resolution wedding Highlight images. With professional high-res pictures, you can draw focus to inspiring details by zooming in, then out and panning… The moving picture that is created is a very unique production that brings great still shots to an even greater perspective. These Photo Fusion Videos can be edited into the regular video to create a longer version of the main wedding video, but often both the main wedding video and the photo Fusion Video stand on their own perfectly well. When showing these at a reception, it is best to have two shorter videos than one big one since attention spans decrease exponentially with each drink!

If at all possible, scout your perspective wedding locations beforehand at the same time of day as the wedding will be. The best video camera angle will be ‘the sun’s view’ so that the subjects are being nicely lit by the sun that’s close to directly behind the video camera. You’ll want to take note how the background looks with these considerations. Most people choose a great sunset beach for their wedding expecting glorious off shore views as the background of the video, but on west-facing beaches the video would then be pointing directly AT the sun with the wedding party subjects reduced to just dark shadows contrasted with an overblown sun that hasn’t set yet. With photography you can use powerful flashes shot closer up and heavy Photoshop to tame the brights & bring out the shadows, but most wedding Videos don’t normally use big production flood lights to spoil the romantic vibe and aggressive highlight/shadow modifications to video can easily add un-desirable side effects; so it is imperative that the video camera is positioned with the sun close to directly behind it.

Another aspect of wedding videos that is certainly overlooked is the Aerial Videos with remote-controlled un-manned ‘quad-copters’. This is still very new but rapidly gaining popularity. The main reason for having a destination wedding is because it’s so beautiful. Still shots and ground video capture the intimate close up detail of the wedding party and their view of the wedding site’s natural beauty, but the ‘Jaw Dropping’ Awe-inspiring views from above are breathless! The ‘quad’ can elegantly fly smoothly by the wedding party and rises to expose the dynamic beauty of the shoreline with rocky outcrops and clear turquoise water. These flying camera views are for the most part ‘never seen before’ and the real helicopters would not be able to get in that low to people.

If you hire a professional photographer that is there to capture every emotion and offer lots pictures there is no need for a beautiful wedding party to morph into a presidential press release event; just make sure your photographer will be shooting and offering ‘many to all’ the pictures taken to include something for everyone. Plus, most technically hip photographers offer to post the highlights on Facebook right away so this should take care of everybody in the wedding party trying to take their own pictures to post on Facebook. Let the professional photography pick out the highlights and apply the standard enhancements and post to Facebook, the entire wedding party is encouraged to jump in and tell all their friends by sharing the wedding highlights.

All of these tips are highly recommended to consider before hiring your destination wedding photographer and videographer. You can certainly have all of these amenities for a fraction of the cost that you would previously imagine. The average cost of a US wedding is over $30,000.

Why Wedding Videographers Are So Important by Arvel harris

Comments Off on Why Wedding Videographers Are So Important by Arvel harris

Wedding videographers provide wedding video services and will go around your wedding event filming and recording the proceedings for posterity. Often the wedding video services are provided by the wedding photographers and these two services are merged. While most people get wedding photography though, not everyone gets wedding video services and this is a real shame as it means that they will not be able to see in as much detail what happened on their big day when looking back.

Wedding videography is an important service for anyone getting married and is something that everyone should invest in. While pictures can be beautiful and nostalgic to look back on, they don’t tell a story in quite the same way as videos where you get to see your family and friends dancing and talking and drinking together – where the crazy dancing is actually captured, where you get to see their expressions and their mannerisms and where you get far more of a ‘feel’ for the event.

When you go on holiday chances are that you will take hundreds of photos of the view off the top of a mountain hoping to capture the feeling of being so small and at awe of nature, but when you get back these photos won’t tell the story as they can’t really capture the scale or the feeling. Try instead taking a video of that same scenery and pan up and down or left and right and you will notice that this does a much better job of capturing what it’s like to be there. Likewise then with wedding viedographers this way you will get to feel what it was like to be there, to hear the music and the laughter, to see how busy it was, and what the moods were like when people weren’t posing for photographs. This is the best way to truly relive the experience.

In some cases though you won’t just be reliving the experience – but living it. You will get to see what you looked like from an outside perspective and whether you were wearing your best three piece suit or a long white flowing dress then this is something you will likely want to witness. Likewise you get to see the friends and family mingling when you were too busy cutting the cake or had your attentions drawn in every direction. It allows you to see the things you might have missed and to enjoy the whole experience over again.

And it’s highly important that you do live this over and have a record as it is probably the only time that all your friends and family will be in one place. Birthdays and other events are never quite as important in the eyes of guests, and it’s only for weddings that your family will travel from miles around to come and see you. Many of these people might have travelled from other countries, or from across the country at least. At the same time some of them you might lose contact with, so it’s important to take this opportunity to make a record of everyone together and happy lest it never happen again. You will be glad that you did.

Weddings are such a special day that it’s crucial to capture them with wedding video services. For wedding videographers Toronto, follow the links,

The Importance of Wedding Videography by Christopher Figueroa

Comments Off on The Importance of Wedding Videography by Christopher Figueroa

If you are solely planning on hiring a photographer to capture the magical moments of your wedding, you may want to think twice after reading this.

Wedding photography certainly has its perks. A photographer can record a kiss, a hug, or even a smile as a beautiful image forever cemented in time. For this reason, couples feel that pictures are all that is needed to document their perfect day. However, pictures are only stills of a single point in time. They are one-dimensional and lacking any back-story or sound. To truly capture a momentous occasion like a wedding, videography is the key.

In the past, prospective customers frequently looked down upon the wedding videography industry. Particularly with the rise of video in the 1980’s and continuing into the 1990’s many wedding videographers produced poor work and offered even worse customer service. Such videographers contributed to the development of a stigma that was attached to the industry as a whole. Due to the fact that wedding videography, invented in 1980, was such a new industry, there was a lack of quality control and hence sub par work. Those in charge often performed so poorly because they hadn’t yet formulated a proper approach to treat video as well as their customers.

All of this changed in the beginning of the 21st century. With the start of the 2000’s came in a new wave of wedding videographers, with a different approach to creating the wedding video. Today’s videographers no longer see a couples’ wedding day as just another gig, but rather the opportunity to film a family documentary. Videographers of this era recognize that a wedding is the one special day where 200 people from two different families come together, perhaps for the first time, to celebrate the union of their loved ones. Therefore it is important to the videographer that he or she chronicles the first kiss, the father and daughter dance, and even the surprise guest who travels hundreds of miles to be at their families’ wedding along with all of the other special moments that may occur.

That is why wedding videography should not be ruled out simply because there will be a professional photographer present at the wedding. Photography and videography offer different aspects of documenting an occasion. Wedding videos chronicle the entire story in moments instead of single framed images. When a crowd circles around a groom and his father-in-law as the two exchange jokes and laughter occurs, a photographer can only document the smiles or the crowd. A videographer will make the crowd, the joke and the laugh all visible and audible for the couple’s family to watch on video for years to come. Wouldn’t it be a pleasure for a couple’s children to see their parents’ wedding and be able to relive the moments as if they were actually there?

It is the role of a professional wedding videographer to know just when such moments will occur. A modern experienced videographer is seasoned to anticipate when a spontaneous and exciting moment during a wedding will occur. He or she knows that it is recounting those moments along with the standard events like vows and dances that will make their customers happiest. The goal of the videographer is to tell the tale of a special occasion, while offering those other dimensions that photography can’t, like sound, motion, story and spontaneity.

Memories for a Lifetime: Wedding Videography by Classicinvitations

Comments Off on Memories for a Lifetime: Wedding Videography by Classicinvitations

Event videography, such as shooting weddings, requires more than basic video production knowledge. It also requires having a good eye, being spontaneous, courteous and thinking on your feet. Planning to shoot a wedding video on a small budget? Here are a handful of tips.
When you start to shoot a wedding video you have to be prepared to work all day without a break! Shooting weddings requires active participation because there will always be something to shoot, whether it’s the ceremony itself, cutaways, family and friends’ speeches and the reception. Everything happens at a lightning pace and you can’t miss any of it.
At least the day before, visit the location where the wedding will take place. The most convenient time is usually during the wedding rehearsal. This is when you’ll get an idea of where everyone will be standing. It’s always helpful to meet the wedding coordinator so that he or she may assist you with the details, such as exact times and order, wedding party placement, wedding length, reception set up, etc.
When you’re visiting the location(s), locate places to set up the camera(s), location of the power sockets; look at the lighting condition, especially where the wedding party will be standing; how will everyone fit into frame? Will you need to bring lights just in case? How large is the room?
Think about how and where you’ll be connecting and placing your audio. Will you be using lapel microphones? A digital recorder? Is the location able to record audio on a separate disk for backup? You may also choose to use the audio from a static camera up front just in case. Does the location have any rules that may restrict your ideas? Plan for the unexpected.
Make a checklist of everything you’ll need and make absolutely certain you have everything ready to go: camera(s); blank tapes (about five for each camera), film stock, etc.; additional lens; tripod(s); BATTERIES (plan to bring extras if you have them); audio equipment; lighting; etc. If you’re shooting with more than one camera, now is a good time to make sure all the cameras are set on the same settings: aspect ratio, fps, gamma, etc.
You’ll need to white balance each camera on location once they’re set up. However, if you need to move a camera around during the service, you may want to set the white balance on that camera to automatic.
If this is a multi-camera shoot, you’ll also need an additional camera operator or two to help you on the day of the wedding. Work out their pay or any bartering services beforehand.
Camera and Placement
To get the best shots possible of the wedding ceremony, it’s best to have at least two or three cameras (preferably the same brand all set on the same settings!). To save the camera’s battery power for the reception, bring a couple of extension cords to use during the ceremony. Since the camera(s) will most likely be on a tripod during the ceremony versus the reception, this is the best time to save your battery power.
The following is a basic camera setup plan for a wedding service and will certainly differ depending on the actual location. Remember, use your eye to get the best angle and composition:
Set a camera up in the back, preferably at a higher angle where no one can block the frame (for instance, from the balcony). The closer to the center aisle, the better. This camera should be able to capture the entire wedding party and perhaps even the guests. You may choose to keep this as a master shot and/or a static shot; however, you may also want to also use this camera to zoom in during key points.
Set another camera at about a 45-degree angle from the front on either side, either facing the bride or groom. This camera should be able to capture special highlights of the service up close and the entertainment, if any.
If possible, another camera should be placed in the front, except facing the bride and groom from the other direction – perhaps even an OTS (over-the-shoulder) shot of the minister or priest. This shot works great for the seating of the parents, bride and groom’s vows and any close-up reaction shots. If you position this camera right, you shouldn’t be able to see another camera/ camera operator in the shot. Try zooming in – this camera should always have an operator.
You don’t necessarily have to keep one camera static the entire time, but if you feel you should, choose the camera that frames the widest shot. You can rely on the camera that has the widest shot because it will be able to capture the important points taking place. When you edit, if the other shots from the other cameras aren’t what you want, you can cut to this shot for backup.
If you’re using more than one camera, come up with a simple game plan with the other camera operators. For instance, see to it that they only capture close-ups while you shoot the pans and zooms and any other shots.
Cutaways work great when using them creatively. Think: “Shoot to edit”. You can never have enough cutaways, which saves you in post. Cutaways may be used as montage sequences during opening/closing titles, mattes, establishing shots, DVD menu and labels and transitions.
You’ll definitely need cutaways from both the wedding ceremony and the reception. Therefore, plan to shoot the cutaways of the ceremony right before the wedding. If possible, use a separate tape from the one the service will be recorded on. You certainly don’t want to run out of tape during the service! For the reception, shoot cutaways before the reception and in between the highlights.
Some cutaway shot ideas include: flowers and bows on the pews, exterior of location with sign–perhaps with cars pulling up, water fountains, wedding cake, candles at the wedding service or center pieces at the reception, wine glasses, crowd mingling/eating/entering, etc. Cutaway shots don’t necessarily have to be static; you may use pans and tilts, zooms, etc. Don’t overuse any one of them though!
Things to Keep in Mind
Know what’s expected of you – Depending on the agreement you’ve set up with the bride and groom, what to shoot will determine the plan they’ve arranged beforehand. Make sure you know what they want before you begin shooting. This may save you lots of footage, energy, space and time, especially when you’re editing! A basic package plan some videographers set up usually includes just the ceremony and the highlights of the reception. However, if the package is extended, this could include additional footage, such as the bride and groom getting ready, a slideshow, after party, etc. It’s up to what they want when deciding what to shoot.
Dress appropriately – Button-up blouses, dress shirts, slacks and comfortable dress suits are preferable. You’ll be doing a lot of moving around, kneeling and bending so wear comfortable dress shoes.
Work well with others – Get to know all the vendors who’ll be helping out with the wedding: wedding coordinator, photographer, DJ, musicians, singers, etc. Everyone needs to work together and these people can help you. Making good relationships can also lead to networking and future opportunities. If there’s a wedding photographer, ask him or her if you may use some of their photos for a video slideshow.

How Interviews for Wedding Videography Should be Done by Bill Cotter

Comments Off on How Interviews for Wedding Videography Should be Done by Bill Cotter

Interviews have helped us in many ways. In news casting, it has helped news reporters to communicate to their viewers what the real issue is in controversies that concern the public. In hospitals, doctors and other health care providers are able to trace the causes of illness among clients who seek professional health to cure their health problems. Researchers are also able to get their raw data through interviews and they become an integral part of their studies that can help them create a conclusion. These things may only be sets of questions but they can uncover many truths and many stories from different people that can affect their lives.

In weddings, an interview can also be part of the celebration. Well, it will not contribute to changing the world or cure illnesses but definitely, it is something that can tell the world how love stories come to their happy endings. It is also a way of letting the guests (especially those who are close to the bride and groom) express their best wishes for the couple. It may not be something that can contribute to world peace but it is something that can tell people how successful love stories are made. And this is done through a wedding videography.

This may be difficult to do especially on the wedding day because people will be very busy chitchatting with their friends. Some may be too busy helping out on the wedding. The bride and groom might be too busy entertaining the guests and focusing on their programs. However, the person who is tasked to do this job must know the right timing in order to get the job done. He or she may interview the couple days before to tell their stories in a different venue. It is important that prior to any interviews questions are already laid out to have spontaneity in the conversation. You also have to prepare questions that are asked in the right way, nothing too offensive and nothing too personal. Questions should be directed about the couple and highlighting their best moments and admirable challenges. Bottom line is every question should be asked with tact and they must be interrelated with each other. Remember, an interview for this activity has a goal. The interviewer must have control and must make sure to get the best parts of their story.

This is not done to sugar coat their love story in a wedding videography. It is also better for people to hear stories wherein they can smile and believe in love again; not to be gasped and to be disappointed with the awful truths in every relationship. This is because their stories and the good things about it, which has brought to this special moment, what makes weddings magical and happy. It is sacred and people who joined there did not come to witness or see the bitter part of every relationship.

In addition, when it comes to guest interviews, the interviewer should also ask them randomly, particularly the most important persons in their lives. He or she need not to ask all them. To make it more exciting, it should be quick and lively. That way it can be more fun and spontaneous as well.


Try to do this when taking videos in a wedding. It can have an amazing impact on the guests. In addition, greetings from the heart can reach the couple, as it will focus the person. Just remember, to plan it, have a flow and be tactful.

In today’s time, the couples are not satisfied with just having photographs on the wedding day. Most couples want to have a wedding videography that they can watch in times they want to revisit their wedding day. The photographs alone sometimes are unable to capture the moments as well as the emotions, compared to videos. With the advancement of technology, a lot of couples want to have video on their wedding day.
