Are there any hidden costs? 2017-05-29T08:55:27+00:00

No. The price agreed will not change, even if my prices have risen. You will receive your DVD copies each in personalised covers and each DVD cover will also be personalised. If you were getting USB option it comes in a branded box. Online delivery is also an optional extra for your full video.

How do you blend in during the day, we are concious of our guests feeling uncomfortable? 2017-05-29T08:56:35+00:00

I always dress appropriately and i will be unobtrusive and courteous at all times. Check my testimonials for more. You’re enjoyment of the day is more important to me than any cool shots i might get.

Some other companies are offering 2 or 3 camera operators, do you? 2017-05-29T09:10:04+00:00

No. I like to keep a small footprint as opposed to being a mini production company. Some of the larger companies produce amazing work, but don’t be blindly swayed by the amount of people or type of gear we use. The only thing that really matters is the end product.
I try to be as minimal in my approach as possible.

Will our finished DVD have a menu and chapters? 2017-05-29T08:58:54+00:00

Yes, if you ordered DVDs. There will be chapters and a personalized interactive menu on your DVD. The Actual DVD will be personalised too. If it’s USB you will receive the video as 1 or 2 separate files.
If you choose the online version too it will have chapters, just like a DVD would.

Will we be distracted by lights used by you on your camera or at the venue? 2017-05-29T09:00:54+00:00

No. The only time i may need a light(s) would be the dancing or very occasionally for the speeches and only if the venue is very dark. Even if i do use a lights, it will be small ones and i have full control over the strength of them.

Will you film the Bridal preparation on the wedding morning? 2017-05-29T09:02:37+00:00

Yes. This is an optional extra for both the “Couture” and the “Bespoke” packages. and 95% of the time people get them included as it’s a nice time to get all the details of the morning.

Who chooses our soundtrack? 2017-05-29T09:05:25+00:00

At the moment, for the main video it’s yourselves but with copyright laws this may change over time. You may supply me me with up to 12 songs on CD, which i will use in the editing process.
Alternatively i can choose the music for you. Because of my style of editing, for the Highlight Clip i will choose appropriate music and I have full control over this.

Yes. A non-refundable retainer of €300 is required to secure your date. The balance is due on or before the day of the wedding.
You may pay by cash, bank transfer, bank draft or cheque.

Do you charge extra for travel outside Dublin? 2014-01-30T17:35:49+00:00

I don’t charge extra to travel just outside Dublin, however a travel charge would apply for some areas further afield. Relocation costs may apply also. Full details upon inquiry.

Do you use backup equipment? 2014-01-30T17:32:47+00:00

Yes. I always have backup equipment with me. That is just another reason you chose a professional.

How will you record sound during the ceremony? 2014-01-30T17:31:52+00:00

Great Question! Sound is very important so i use up to 5 different wireless mics at the ceremony so that i always have the best source of sound.
I then edit these so the sound is perfect on the finished DVD. You will not even know the mics are there.

Do you shoot in HD? 2017-05-29T09:08:52+00:00

Yes. I use the absolute best equipment available so everything i film is in true HD ,and therefore future proofed should you choose the blu-ray option. Most couples still choose DVD.
That is why in 2017 i started delivering on USB, as it is FULL HD as opposed to DVD which is standard definition.
In fact most of my cameras can now record 4K which is much higher resolution than HD.
