FAQ

Will any HD Camera get the picture that I see on National Television?

No, Industrial and Broadcast video professionals use special cameras and lenses that are far superior to the HD cameras that you might buy in a local video store such as Best Buy or Fry's. Just because a camera is capable of HD resolutions does not mean the original picture is any good to begin with. Small chips, cheap lenses, and inferior circuitry all play a major factor in the original image quality.
Just like your diamond wedding ring has different grades and clarity, the same holds true for HD Video Cameras. Most videographer's use consumer or pro-sumer gear which will NOT compare to what you see on national television or the NFL. We at VIDEO KEEPSAKES™ use only the finest professional grade cameras made exclusively for the Weddinsg Industry. What this means to you is a much better picture when working under adverse conditions such as your wedding. We keep your faces sharper and evenly exposed and can enjoy more vibrant colors for a wedding video look that rivals a theatrical release.

Do we mic the groom during the ceremony?

Depending on the package choosen, Yes, but besides that, we might mic other key sound sources for the best enhanced sound quality possible during your wedding ceremony. Let's face it, the groom might be clearing his throat or indulged in a private conversation with the bride, and the clergy usually walks back and forth getting further and further away from the grooms mic. Many ceremonies have readings from a podium that is far away from the groom and the camera, plus you might have included a trio or quartet playing from the side.
The grooms mic is hardly a good candidate for perfect audio. Using the on-camera mic is an option, but in a church you can end up with a reverberated echo of a large hall which will be hard to understand. Outside you are plagued with wind and other sounds like honking horns and passerby's. Even the best shotgun mic's will only get sound directly in their path and at close range. The reason you hear a football player on the field is because they use a special parabolic shotgun mic (shaped like a disc) that is aimed directly at the mouth of a player. You will not find nor want this type of gear at your wedding, yet you want good clear sound. Our years of experience gained us the knowledge to master these areas to make sure you receive the best sound possible without leaving it to chance. Most beginning or unskilled wedding videographer's rely solely on their camera mic and/or a groom mic alone, which leaves your audio to chance and while the vows might be clear, the rest of the wedding ceremony might be very hard to understand.
Special Note: Nothing recorded on the grooms mic is heard over the house sound system, it only comes back to one of our cameras for later editing, and in most cases, the other audio sources covered hold the key to clear sound during your ceremony. The grooms mis is only used sparingly during the editing process since we usually rely on other sources to get the best overall sound. The grooms mic is removed immediatly after the ceremony to insure total privacy and comfort during the rest of your wedding day.

What about the sound during the Reception?

At VIDEO KEEPSAKES™ we believe that sound is half the picture and we use Enhanced Sound Techniques to make sure everything vital is heard including your Band or DJ and the ambience of the room and guests. Everything is mixed later for amazing sound quality no matter where we are positioned in the room. We cover all the bases!

Do you use bright lights?

In most cases we never use a light during the bridal prep session, the ceremony, or the post ceremony photo session. We use minimal or no light during the Reception based upon your needs or requests. We only use a small light if your venue calls for it, yet as you see in our Wedding Video Samples, our picture is stunningly clear and bright. Not all cameras especially HD Cameras are made for low-light situations, but our newly developed gear is made for low light situations. A videographer shooting with older HD Gear will only come back with muddy footage if not using bright movie lights indoors, we rarely shoot with this type of gear, yet almost 90% of all wedding videographer's shooting today are using outdated and dark consumer grade HD gear.
