Wedding Packages

Just out of curiosity, For those of you who do weddings what video packages do you offer. Meaning what final product do you give them. I am wondering how I should present my video to my clients. Should I make a highlight of the events during the day, from pictures, to "I do's", to reception. Or should I do something different.

This is an area I'd venture to guess you'll get a lot of different types of feedback. Personally my videos usually consist of Bridal/Groom Prep, Ceremony, Photosession, Reception, then Highlights. Add-ons include Growing Up montage (photomontage), Credits montage, etc.

There are sections that are edited in Vignette format (Bridal Prep, Photosession, and Highlights) and the rest is more standard coverage.

I recently started up a videography company where I make feature style mockumentary wedding films* (as well as shorts, special features/featurettes, audio commentary, etc). We shoot 20-30 hours of footage per wedding (generally 2, sometimes 3 cam ops - everything starts well before the actual wedding day). The feature is basically the story of the B&G and the looming wedding and all the drama that's attached to getting married (very interpretive). Like a custom one-off movie made for the couple based on their wedding experiences.


*everything is digital; I mean film in the filmic sense - narrative: story, pacing & continuity, and technical: editing, processing, 24p, etc

Patrick,

Your approach sounds very interesting.

Would you mind sharing how much you charge for this type of production? It's a lot of work -- 20-30 hours just for taping.

Also, I'd love to see some examples of your work if you have any you'd like to share.

Best Regards,
Pete

I offer two packages. One is event coverage without options. The other is expanded event coverage with one option included. Each package has a different price for single or dual camera coverage. All of my products include extensive editing to make a structured story line that is entertaining to watch.
