- You will receive copies of all the footage two weeks after the ceremony. After youï¿½ve had a chance to peruse the footage, and make any additional editing decisions, the master DVD can be created.
- I personally edit all of the footage into one master DVD with chapter links and a menu. All pre-ceremony, post-ceremony and reception footage will be edited to create a smooth flowing presentation that is sensitive to continuity, redundancy, pacing, and sound quality.
- A $100 deposit is required to confirm your date. Remaining payment is due on the day of the ceremony.
- You can contact me anytime to set up a meeting either in your own home, or my office.
- DVDs samples of any previous weddings, including edited options or raw footage are available upon request via mail, one-on-one meeting, or high-speed download.
- I am available anytime via my cell phone, or email. 610-420-4727, firstname.lastname@example.org
-I start with a flat hourly rate based on one camera or two cameras and how many hours you'll be needing our service. I have a basic editing packages, or I can customize your personal editing package based on either your desires or your budget. You do not have to commit to editing to hire me as videographer and you are free to choose editing decisions after you recieve your raw footage.
I have two other shooters that I've trained to shoot in my style and according to my standards. After I am booked for a show, I then book the other two shooters. Once they have been booked, I no longer book for that day.
Additional Wedding Extras
This is a 5 - 10 minute video for your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, reception, or bachelor party. Including interviews with friends or family; a photo collage set to music, etc. Use your imagination. We can even come and setup the TV/VCR and play the video on a looped tape during the cocktail hour.
It is always a good idea to have a few extra high-quality copies as gifts for friends/relatives, or just for safe-keeping. Quality is the same as original.
The bride and groom are interviewed separately, where they each tell their version of how they met, when they knew this person was the one, how they proposed, etc. The two interviews will then be edited together as an intro to the ceremony footage. Can also include pictures, music, video re-enactment, and even personalized graphics or video.
This is a 10-15 minute video featuring highlights from the event.
Great to give as gifts to friends and relatives who would otherwise not see the entire video.
Can also be designed to your own specifications to include scenes of your choice.
Photo Montage Video
Very popular to show at the reception. You can open up your video with a series of pictures from various occasions; the bride and groom growing up, shots of them dating and courting, family generations (great grandparents to grandparents to parents weddings, etc. Or even actual photos from the wedding). You pick the music, you put the photos in order, we will do the rest. Flat rate per finished minute.
Take any section of your video, or the highlights video, and we'll put it on the internet, for anyone in the world to watch, whether it's a dial up connection, or high speed Cable or DSL. Then email the link to all your friends, family, co-workers, distant relatives, etc. Video Case and label: Extra protective videotape casing with full color label and images from the day's events. Can include actual wedding photos, stills from the video, parts of the wedding program, etc.
We will film the preparation activities on the day of the wedding at your direction and edit them into a short 2-5 minute segment at the beginning of the tape, (bridal party at hair salon that morning, groomsmen preparing, limo arriving, ushers preparing church, etc.)
Your entire edited master can be made into a custom DVD according to your specifications. Anything you see on a store bought DVD can be done to your wedding DVD: interactive menus, bonus footage, easter eggs, commentaries, photo montages, etc.
Frequently Asked Questions
Over the past 15 years, A Cappella Productions has done approx 200 weddings, from Catholic to Protestant, Jewish, indoor, outdoor, one camera, two camera, lavish receptions, simple backyard gatherings, day, night, summer, winter, fall, spring, young couples fresh out of college, older couples getting re-married, etc. I've got samples of most of them I can show you.
What are the benefits of a professional wedding videographer?
Any experienced bridal consultant will tell you that there are major differences between the video and photography. For example, photos are posed. My videography is not. Video captures everything that happens as it is. Videos capture the reality; the real time images, movements and audio. It is watching the video that makes people cry, not the posed photos.
In addition, with all the new technologies, you are no longer limited to sitting down in front of a T.V. and VCR to watch a two-hour video. With the internet, CDroms and DVDs, you can re-live the moments with short video samples on any computer, worldwide.
Talk to other couples who videotaped their wedding. Many times, they will say something like "we weren't going to do a video, but then we did, and now, five years later, we're so glad we did. With the video, we get to see all the things we didn't notice before; the groom's expression when he first sees the bride coming down the aisle, the flower girl, ring bearer, the bridesmaids walking down the aisle, the opening music, the parents of the bride and groom when they start crying, etc."
If that isn't enough, you will also have your vows recorded forever on high quality audio and video.
You may not see the value now, but trust me. In a few years, you will be so thankful that you captured this once-in-a-lifetime moment on video.
How does your pricing structure work?
Over the years of learning what brides really want the most, I have chosen to structure my services so that I offer the bare minimum I would recommend as a professional, and then add all the additional bells & whistles and extra options on the side, that can be added A La Carte. You get a top quality videographer using professional equipment (camera, lighting and audio) and a professional presence, regardless of the editing package, or time coverage you choose. If you haven't budgeted for a Hollywood movie, you don't have to pay for it.

your most basic package?
The most basic service I can offer is simply me, with one camera, filming at an hourly rate. Most other professional wedding videographers are reluctant to offer this service, but it does allow the bride and groom to budget for other things. You can always commit to additional editing any time in the future, and still guarantee that you get a high quality footage of the day, with good audio and well composed shots from a professional.
back to topWhat if I don't know what I want?
I do this by taking all the bells and whistles that videographers like to add on their video (i.e.; photo montages, extra copies, highlights videos, pre-wedding day interviews, etc.) and have listed them all individually on a separate page of additional options that you can browse at your discretion. This keeps the cost of the meat of the video dramatically lower than my competition. If you do decide on any "additional toppings," you pay for them individually. If you do not want any of them, you will still get a great wedding video, with quality image composition and sound, and can make editing decisions later, after you review the footage.
Can I just trust your judgment for the editing?

Testimonials from satisfied brides and grooms:
WOW!!!!!! Paul and I just watched the amazing DVD that you put together for us. I feel like we just relived the whole ceremony...feelings and all! You did a wonderful job capturing the best parts. I loved reminiscing the ceremony, all the before and after moments, candid shots of the children and guests, the gardens, horse drawn carriage, gazebo, lake with huge "goldfish", and so much more. I can't wait to show it to our friends and family who couldn't attend. This is a wedding gift we will truly cherish all our days. With heartfelt gratitude, "

The wedding video was excellent.
The best part is the little details we have on the video we would have never thought of. It is extremely professional looking and we couldn't be more pleased. In the short time we have had it we watched it 10 times. It couldn't have been better. Thank you for all of your work & talent."
