Every wedding is different; sometimes, you don't need a videographer for 12 hours. Sometimes you need them there to capture the core elements of your day. Other times, let's say you go all out on the decorations, dress, flowers, ceremony, and more. You'll want to capture every inch of the room as much as possible for the entire day.
A part of the job is the production of the actual wedding day; the other part is the post-production. Here is where the magic happens. At prospect cinema, we carefully select only the best of the best from your day and implement editorial techniques to edit a curated film just for you. But what if you don't want a fancy highlight edit? What if you only wish for the 30-minute ceremony and speech documentary? Will this be filmed in 4k or 1080HD? Do you want the raw footage of the day? Delivering the end product is essential in this part of the process.
Depending on what you have scheduled for your day will determine the amount of personnel needed. As a precaution, we always will be filming with two videographers and an assistant. This helps capture almost every angle and limit missing anything from the day.
An Instagram teaser is a popular way to showcase the best moments from your day. Are you having a rehearsal dinner or a prewedding trip? Are you interested in an engagement film? These are the important events to capture, and you don't want to be in a position where you would've wished to get a videographer the day before the event.
Destination weddings are a little bit different. But a good videographer should still know the ins and outs of a wedding, whether it is in your city or on the other side of the world.
Compared to a photographer, although both do an excellent job of documenting your day, the emotion is where it is. You will be able to go back to this film 20 years from now and still be able to hear your father and mother's speeches. Video captures the essence of the moment, the audible laughter, crying, and joyfulness of the day.
