1) Do you use rechargeable AA and AAA batteries for various equipment, or do you buy brand new one-time only batteries each new job?

Mixture of both. Recharges go into the MP3 recorders and lights and Fresh Batts go to the wireless

2) Do you wear a suit to weddings?

Just black pants with a dark button down shirt.

3) How many audio devices other than on-board mics (wireless, shotgun, external, etc.) do you use for ceremonies?

We use 3 Yamaha Pocketraks and one Azden wireless, 2 shotguns

4) If you were only filming the ceremony, which began at 7:00 PM, how early would you arrive to set up?

Probably around around 6pm or 15 til

5) Do you offer referral bonuses to vendors? No

6) Do you state an estimated completion time on your website for a typical wedding video?

Contract only and it states 6-8 weeks

7) What's your favorite piece of equipment that cost under $500? Monopod

8) Does anyone not require a signed contract? No

9) Have you ever bartered services? NO

10) Do you only film weddings? If not, other than weddings, what do you film the most (commercial, concerts, events, etc.)?

Mostly weddings but we shoot live acts every now and then.

Kren, how do you like this kit (the 2-piece set)? Do you find that it is sufficient for most of your lighting needs?
