In today’s world, almost everything points to convenience. People cannot wait, attention spans are short, and we all want to share our special moments via our smartphones.
If you are considering a videographer for your wedding, you will be met with several choices. When brides reserve Jeffrey Cook Videography for their wedding, they have several packages to choose from. One of our most successful packages is our eight-hour coverage. With this package, you get a three to five-minute wedding trailer film which highlights the best parts of your wedding. We cover you getting ready, the full ceremony, toasts, and all the events at the reception. The wedding trailer film is usually completed within a 24-hour period so that you can share it with friends and family while it is still fresh in their minds. The film includes professional licensed music with the best images that were captured. I like to use toasts, card readings, and ceremony audio to help tell the story. There isn’t anything better than allowing your family and friends speak about you to tell your wedding story. Speeches, especially those that are heart-felt can truly make your video shine and stand out. While the toast is happening, I am not only recording but I am listening for great soundbites. I gained this skill as a photojournalist working for the news. We had to listen for soundbites, edit them, and then send them back to the station via a live truck. I believe working as a news photojournalist for fourteen years really prepared me for wedding videography. People want their videos the next day. I can deliver next day edits because of my editing experience in news…so thank you news.
We upload your longer wedding video into a Vimeo album that only you have access to. This album will have your full edited ceremony, all the toasts, reception introductions, garter and bouquet tosses, cake cutting, first dance and parent dances. These segments of your wedding will be broken up in shorter length videos. For instance, the first dance and parent dances will be one video. The toast will be one video. We break it up like this so you can easily stream the video, and you get to choose exactly what you want to watch. No longer do you have to scrub through a disc to find your best parts of your wedding video. Not only are you able to stream your videos, you can download them too! Maybe some of your family members were not able to make it to the wedding. You have the ability to send them the link to your album so that they can experience your wedding. Streaming your video means you can pretty much walk around with your smartphone and watch your wedding whenever you want. The next time you visit your friend you two can pull up your video online and watch you cousin’s speech. It is easier than trying to use a dvd or a bluray. Some discs are not compatible with certain players and then you’re out of luck. Streaming is so much easier, so much more continent, and so much now!
So, I believe we at Jeffrey Cook Videography offer the best of both worlds. If you choose our best value package (8-hour coverage, two videographers) you get the wedding trailer film and full edits of your ceremony and reception. All these will be uploaded so that you can stream them wherever you go. Play them on your tablet, smartphone or laptop. The wedding films are great to share with friends and family. The longer portion is great too. You want to share your memories with your children and other family members. By having both the wedding trailer film and full ceremony and reception you truly get to revisit and cherish your special day. We use two videographers for all our weddings with at least two camera angles. This gives you a variety of viewpoints when you watch your full ceremony and reception.
