Why Get A Video If We Have Photographs?
Many of our brides tell us later how much of a blur their big day became. After all the preparation, the day speeds by. And the bride isn't even allowed to see many of the events leading up to her entrance to walk down the aisle!
After all is said and done, all that's left to remember the day, and share it with friends and family (and eventually your own kids!) are the photographs and your video. And the video is the only way to relive the day with sights and sounds, motion and emotion.
Why Are We Different From Other Videographers?
We are a husband and wife team who specialize in weddings. We do video full time, not just as a hobby on weekends. We will meet with you in advance and get to know exactly what kind of video you like for your wedding. If you like, Janet can capture some emotional video of the bride interacting with the other ladies in the bridal party as you get dressed.
We strive to provide a wedding video that captures more than simply what happened during the day. If you like, we can capture treasured interviews from family members you select. We specialize in getting interviews from friends and family, then using those comments to tell the story of the couple. Stories about their childhood are creatively grouped at the beginning, with stories of dating and the engagement period later. After the ceremony video, there will be special sections with other topics depending on the couple. Each video is different and customized to convey who you are. At the end, before the artistically edited and emotional recap of the day, friends and family wish you the best for your honeymoon and ever after.
What you want on your wedding video is not just what was said during the day, and what everyone wore. We create a video to show your kids and grandkids who you are now. We've had couples come back years later and say that their daughter found their wedding video, and watched it over and over!
If you think of what you would like to see from your Mom's and Grandmother's weddings, it's more than the photographs you might have seen. Who were they? What were their wishes? We capture the answers for you while also capturing the sights and sounds of the day's events.
We Capture Clear Video and Audio
Using our state-of-the-art microphones and low-light 3-CCD camera, we can capture your day regardless of the lighting. Please note that we never use any additional lighting for the ceremony, only if needed for the reception!
(We include some video clips to give you an idea of what we do, but we do want to emphasize that the quality you see depends on your computer, monitor, and Web connection speed. Also, note that even with the best system and connection, the quality will be considerably inferior to a DVD.)(For the best quality, or if the clip does not play correctly, upgrade to )
Here a couple of clips of a beautiful wedding we did in a Charlottesville church...
If you like, Janet can get some unobtrusive footage of preparations before the ceremony. (This if one of many that we've done of a sibling of a bride or groom we had previously videoed...)
We also capture the reception to let you and your kids relive the celebration...
Here is a clip from the "pre-reception" mingling...
and here is a message from the phone answering machine about the previous video...

And of course we also capture your special getaway...
