Our wedding video was virtually free to capture, edit, and make copies. --- and so can you!
Who were our videographers? Two of our good friends. (thank you Gadget & Lyric). Neither of them had much experience with a video camera, but they did awesome. They felt free to experiment with angles, focus, etc. Friends can make the best videographers. They feel comfortably with both the bride & the groom, and it is a great way to involve friends in the wedding in a unique way.
Did we pay the videographers? Like other members of our big day team, we paid them in gift certificates to a local coffee shop. We were really cheap. But I think they appreciated it. If not, sorry, and thanks for still being our friends!
Who edited the video? Kameron did. Mr. Toews went to school for video editing. So this was Fa-REEE! He used Final Cut Pro. and created a highlight video and also edited different chapters of a longer DVD, with features about Getting Ready, Decorations & Details, Taking Pictures, Ceremony, and Reception.
I love looking back & watching our wedding video. Makes the big day seem so fresh in my memory!
