Re: Are Weddings getting out of control....

I figured as much! That's why I love doing live broadcast ceremonies (and receptions) When I get home I have finished the job (and money is in the piggy bank too) No staying up until 1:00am transferring raw footage and then spending the next morning trying to sort it out before a mammoth edit session. I'm really getting too old for that!

Re: Are Weddings getting out of control....

By the time I did my very first Wedding, it seemed Weddings had already abandoned that low key factor for something more extravagant. There were Casino tables and an Elvis singer and this was back in 2005. It's funny that Wedding Videos had this reputation even then of being cheesy and cheap looking. Yet now I'm filming on 4K, a resolution higher than most TV shows and some movies are being shot on today; and whilst 4K maybe my personal choice for most Weddings, some couples are already demanding it.

I don't think some article will convince couples to hold back; in fact with Wedding videos being more widely available on the internet, it is almost encouraging couples to go overboard as they see what others are pulling off and want their own Wedding to match or even top it as they work to impress their guests. It's showing off in a way; then again, can I criticise as I pull out my gimbal, slider, jib, drone and countless cameras and equipment to achieve cinematic results that try to rival TV shows and movies for quality shots.

Although I only started my Business in 2010, it does feel there has been more changes to the Wedding Video industry in the last 7 years than there were in the 20 years previous. Though maybe others with more experience, will disagree.
