How is Ripple Effect Studios different from other videographers?
We go the extra mile to ensure the lasting quality of your wedding video, and that starts with investing in the right equipment. While most videographers use compact, prosumer video cameras (even those that advertise HD video), we will capture your wedding day with high-end broadcast quality cameras that feature superior lenses and sensors. What does this mean to you? You can expect far better color reproduction in a sharp, clean, appealing picture – even in low light.
Why do we need multiple cameras during the ceremony?
We include at least two cameras in each of our wedding packages, and recommend a third camera at the ceremony whenever possible. In order to remain unobtrusive and keep steady shots throughout the ceremony, we keep our cameras mounted on tripods. Since we are not roaming throughout the ceremony venue, it's important to have two or three key angles. Having more than two cameras makes your edited ceremony video that much more dynamic and interesting. While our primary camera at the front of the venue gets a great closeup of your faces, we can have two cameras at the rear of the venue to capture both a wide angle of the ceremony as well as additional closeups focused on any speakers, singers, or musicians. Take a look at Sara and Chase's wedding ceremony for a great example on how important it is to have three camera angles:
Why can't I have a friend shoot video at my wedding instead?
You aren't likely to have a friend DJ or photograph your event, and we don't recommend you ask them to shoot your wedding video either. Your well-meaning family member may want to capture some video with their new compact digital camera, but these cameras don't compare to our broadcast quality HD cameras, and they certainly do not share our years of experience in capturing your wedding day in professional, artistic style. Also, keep in mind that the editing work is equally as important as shooting the video. We have the experience to create a lasting heirloom that you will want to want to share with your family for years to come. And, we focus on delivering your video in a timely manner. If you have friends shoot your wedding video, you'll likely only get shaky, candid video – and there's no telling how long it will take to get it! Let our experienced camera operators and editors take care of your wedding video, and leave your family and friends free to enjoy the celebration. You won't regret it!
Will my videographers be obtrusive?
Absolutely not. Our job is to capture the day as it happens, not to direct the action. We will work with you well in advance to plan for all the activities of your day, so that we are well-prepared the day of and not bothering you with unimportant questions. During the wedding ceremony, we do not move about the venue to avoid being a distraction, and we plan our camera locations in advance to make sure we can capture everything without getting in the way.
When do I receive the finished wedding video?
Our normal turnaround for the finished highlights video is about two weeks after the wedding. At that time, we will first deliver the video via a web video link. This allows you to do two things: You can watch the video as soon as possible and make any suggestions or request changes to certain elements, or give us approval on the video before we make the finished DVD. Also, you can share that video online via Facebook or email while you wait for the DVDs to arrive. After you receive the highlights video online, you can expect your DVDs approximately two weeks after that.
