"The video of our wedding has become more important to me than our pictures because it truely captures the magic and excitement of that day. When I watch our video I can relive that wonderful day again.".
"Our wedding video exceeded anything we could have ever imagined or hoped for; it was simply perfect. I don't know what else to say Tim, but from the bottom of our hearts...thank you.".
"Tim did an excellent job with our wedding video. It was exactly what we were hoping for! Many of the other videographers we had researched tried to make the video too artistic by making it into a montage or were at the other extreme and basically filmed it like a documentary. Tim did a great job of finding middle ground with his editing...".
10 years of experience. In video production vigilance is attained by experience. 2015 marks our 10th year of wedding video production. Without experience, a videographer will follow the action. An experienced videographer, on the other hand, will stay ahead of the action. Because of experience shooting all kinds of weddings, the action can be anticipated and captured from the front and not from behind.
A high view of marriage. Attitude, exposure, and outlook. An artist can't escape the mind-set he or she brings to a wedding or event. A professional video it is an expression of an experience as seen through the eyes of the artist. An idealistic view of marriage fuels the energy that is expended to capture, edit and produce great wedding videos!
Attention to style and vision. All of us come packaged with preconceived notions, preferences, likes and dislikes. Therefore, every effort is made to thoroughly understand what each couple foresees is important. If we make sure we understand what people and plans are involved in your wedding or event, then we know what subjects and themes to build into your story.
Careful planning. As the itinerary is laid out, the videographer knows how to plan for each venue and event. Every detail of timing, anticipated lighting, and requirements for premium sound capture is planned ahead of the event. Because of this planning beforehand, the videographer can give attention to spontaneity and randomness of human interactions.
Priority given not only to the best video, but also to the event sound track. The days of the silent films are over. Unless you're trying to achieve an old film feel, you hopefully won't need subtitles in your video. Filmmakers and sound design artists understand the importance of primary dialog, subtle dialog, and ambient sound. Equal weight is given to both video and audio planning. All dialog and scene sounds are monitored and recorded live. All audio is recorded with premium professional equipment using both on-camera mics, and off-camera wireless mics. A mufti-channel field recorder set up, close to the source, to record live music and performance music.
