I might need to add something like that to my contracts...

It is your call though, no pressure lol
Just took a look at your site, no wonder the comment ;). I didn't know who I was talking to.

Not to detract from Ram's video, I'll send you an email on this issue.

Thanks

Pat,

Don't panic! I'm not gonna use Shania Twain; Instead, I'm planning on using "I will always love you" by Whitney Houston ;-)


Randy,

Thanks for your suggestion. But I don't think letting Shania and the Priest fight for the attention of the viewer for the first part isn't a good idea. It will be distracting for the viewer when different tracks of voices are played at the same time (even if one is set at a lower level). Plus, I want to personalize my wedding video as much as possible, that's one of the reasons I've used priest's voice in the beginning. And finally, the song you mentioned is overly used at weddings and wedding videos. It's a great song don't get me wrong, but it is not to my taste.

I can understand why Pat got freaked out when you mentioned Shania's name. If you check some of his videos, you will know his song selection ability is unmatched. That's one of the reasons why he is part of the Top 25 dream team.

Ram -

Fully understand :). I don't have access to the musical score Pat and most of you have so I usually have to make due with great (but VERY overused) songs. I could only suggest with what I know and up to this point, my wedding editing has been limited to songs that are well known.

Personalizing videos is something I'm striving for at this time and which is the reason why I am here learning. I can only hope to reach Pat's level and achieve that top 25 in my lifetime.

Given the situation, I'll admit using Shania's song would be a giant step backward. However, the style in which the song begins and starts is what I was ultimately eluding to.

Thanks and congrats on your wedding!

I agree, I give good videographers credit for their music selection as much as the images they shot.. many times even more for the music selection..

I think Patrick was kidding around, but I could be wrong.
