Simple because, wedding videos can be overdone. You’ve seen it, Phoenix wedding videographers using cheesy transitions, inappropriate shots, overused effects. Sorry, none of that here. We keep it simple using subtle transitions, and effects that only add to a dramatic shot. A good wedding video is in the composition, not the effects. The software we use is the same that’s used to edit Hollywood movies, and it comes with a lot of effects. It doesn’t mean they all have to used. To be honest, we only use a handful. With that said, is your wedding video going to look great? You better believe it!
Most brides dream of this day their whole life. Knight in shining armor, white horses, riding off into the sunset, etc. Although there may not be any white horses at your reception, we’re romantics, and we’re going to make your Phoenix wedding video as romantic and elegant you dreamed it would be. We get the best shots of the day and weave it into a well composed work of art. If you don’t break out the box of Kleenex by the time your done watching your final video, we haven’t done our job.
We’re pretty easy going people. Although we take what we do very seriously, don’t be surprised if you find the urge to invite us out for a drink or two. You and I are going to spend a lot of time on the phone talking about your wedding day like an old friend from high school, just without the bad hair and blue eye shadow. My goal is to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Future memories should be the last thing you have to worry about right now. And yes…I just may take you up on that drink offer, if we aren’t filming the next day, that is.

WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOENIX WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHERS?
We’re cool, and the other Phoenix wedding videographers aren’t. Ok, they’re pretty cool too, but we love what we do, and enjoy creating lasting friendships with our clients. It’s truly rewarding for us as a company and individually to be able to provide a quality product that couples, their friends, and family can enjoy over and over again.
WILL IT COST US OUR FIRST BORN FOR A WEDDING VIDEO?
No, but… A lot goes into a quality wedding video: Consultations, pre-production, logistics, organizing, filming, and heck of a lot of editing. Bottom line is: My husband and I do not have a video of our wedding 23 years ago, and there’s nothing that I wouldn’t pay to have one now. And no offense to our photographer friends, but pictures just don’t cut it.
WHAT ABOUT THE LIGHTING. HOW WILL IT BE DONE?
We understand that ambiance is an important part of a reception. For the most part we like to remain unobtrusive and we understand that a glaring light during your first dance isn’t the look you were going for. What it boils down to though is if the venue is dark, the video will be dark…and you won’t be happy. We will go over all of the details during the pre-production process and explore all avenues for lighting before the wedding day.
IS THE PERSON I’M MARRYING TRULY THE PERSON FOR ME?
We can provide an unbiased answer to this question for the low, low price of $19.95 +processing fee, which can be added on to any package you book. But wait! There’s more…
MY WEDDING IS NOT IN PHOENIX, CAN YOU STILL FILM IT?
Of course. We love to travel. Obviously it takes a little more planning and logistics, but we’re use to that. Contact our office and we can discuss the details.
DO I HAVE TO FEED YOU?
We like food. Meals on any wedding videography shoots lasting longer than 6 hours is appreciated. And no worries, we always keep are equipment within arms length in case any surprises pop up.
OMG...WHEN WILL I GET MY WEDDING VIDEO!!!
Creating a high quality wedding video does take some time. Unlike some other Phoenix wedding videographers, we pride ourselves on having one of the fastest turnarounds in the valley, and can usually have your final package completed within a week or two. We feel editing footage that is fresh in your brains always has a better outcome than when it sits collecting dust for months. We also have text message alerts during the post-production process to keep you abreast of our progress. If for some reason your video editing is running a little longer than 2 weeks we will notify you ahead of time.
WHY DO YOU KEEP SAYING PHOENIX WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHERS?
It’s Google’s fault…they make us use keywords in our websites to make it rank higher in their search engine. So the more I say Phoenix Wedding Videographers, or Wedding Videographers in Phoenix or Phoenix Wedding Videographer…the higher it will rank on their search. Stupid, I know.
HOW WILL THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION BE EDITED?
Each of our packages are customizable to include full edits of certain parts of the day…The Ceremony and Reception being two of these. We use High Definition cameras to film the ceremony and Reception, and ambient sound. Lapel mics are used for vows, and line feeds for vocalists, musicians, bands, or Reception Sound System. For these full edits, we will create a documentary style edit. (All the good stuff as it happened with live audio)
WILL IT RAIN ON MY WEDDING DAY?
We live in a desert.
