Frequently Asked Questions
Why Are Your Prices So Reasonable?
I personally film every wedding to the same standard.
Two years ago, a bride asked me, " I just want you to film my wedding and
give me six DVDs and a USB stick, I dont want the Bluray disc or anything
else, what would you charge me"?
I discounted her price from 1200 to 850.
A wise bride but, but hold on what she said made alot of sense!
Now everybody gets the same deal!
What is your style?
I would describe my style as very definitely documentary
For me, it's all about the events of the day and the people that were there. Anyone watching your wedding video in the future will know the full story of what happened on the day and who was there, with nothing left out.
Will you do the cinematic/arty style if I want it? Give me a phone call and we can talk about the difference between cinematic/arty and documentary style, and I think I know which one you will go for when you have all the info.
What type of camera do you use?
That is like asking a racing car driver what type of tyres he uses, the answer is that there is a different camera for each different situation
Eg. For the guests arrivals and bride arriving, and shaking hands with everyone afterwards , you dont want a big camera in your face, so I use a tiny small Sony EX1 Pro video camera.
Then for the speeches, so I will not have to shine a video light in your face, I use a $22k Sony 350 broadcast camera, a bit big but great in low light and it allows me to film farther back from the speaker at this nail biting time.
Do you use a drone? I do bring a drone with me but as it is very weather dependent, I don't advertise it as part of the service, but I will use it if weather permits.
Do you use a SLR camera, like I have seen being used, to video my wedding?
No, I use only professional, broadcast quality, Sony video cameras
What type of training/experience have you?
I have photographed and videoed over 1000 weddings over the past 25 years.
I did my formal training at Bournville College Of Art in Birmingham and served
my time under Terry Walsh, a senior producer for the BBC, then running his
own video production company in Moseley, Birmingham.
I moved to Ireland in 1999 and have been working here at weddings ever
OK, I'm happy to go ahead and book, what do I do next?
