Frequently Asked Questions
What's the Documentary Edit?
With my Documentary Edit you are going to see and hear everything I recorded on the wedding day. I shoot the most important parts of the day, like the ceremony & speeches, in their entirety. You get a complete recording of everything that was said and done. In between those moments, I shoot whatever I see: candid shots of you and your guests mingling and having fun, kids playing, detail shots, location shots, etc, etc, etc.
Now, on a typical 8 hour wedding shoot, I don’t actually record 8 hours of footage because I record selectively. I typically record 2-3 hours of footage and that’s the typical length of the Documentary Edit, because again, you are going to see everything I recorded.
I take all that raw footage and I put it together in such a way that when you get it, it feels like a polished, finished product. No shots of my feet or the ceiling. You simply get incredibly high quality video and audio from beginning to end so you can press play and enjoy it all the way through, reliving the entire day. It really is the documentary of your wedding day.
The Documentary Edit is what I’ve delivered to over 500 couples. And in fact, over 80% of them did not upgrade to a Highlight Package. They went with my Documentary Package and they have been thrilled with the results. They write me all the time to say so.
The day really does fly by. My Documentary Package is all about capturing the day so you can relive it later. Besides, why would you pay a videographer to record the whole day and then all you get is a short edited video that’s their interpretation of the day? My Highlight Reels are great because they’re short and sweet and perfect for sharing with friends and on social media if you like. But when you want to relive the day, hear what was said and see what happened, the Documentary Edit is what you will look back on.
I want to share with you a couple short samples of my Documentary Edits. I don’t want to post 2-3 hour long videos on my website so I made these short samples so you can get a feel for how my Documentary Edits look and feel.
