Shooting Style

Special Event Video is very discreet. Almost all recording is done from positions and angles that are not in the general view of the couple and their guests. No blinding lights are used, nor are big bulky tripods used at the reception. Lots of candid and natural reaction shots are captured of the couple and their guests throughout the day.


Special Event Video uses professional High Definition Widescreen Cameras for all video recording. In addition, sound is captured through the use of UHF wireless lapel microphones, minidisc audio recorders and other on-camera microphones.

Your Wedding DVD

Depending on the length of your ceremony, as well as reception coverage, most finished productions range between 60 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. Most wedding film productions are completed within a 3 to 6 month period from the date of your wedding. Your wedding discs will have a custom menu screen and various chapter icons from which you can select. All packages include Blu-ray and DVD copies, additional copies can be ordered.
