Do you shoot a wedding video with a DSLR camera ?

NO. Do not get me wrong DSLR camera are great and very popular. This has been the Holy Grail of independent filmmakers for the last 5 years. The large 35mm sensors give a film, cinematic quality to the video. But there are full of issues, such as aliasing, rolling shutter etc..

What equipment do you use, and why does it matter ?

I shoot with Super 35mm Sensor camera 2 X Canon Cinema EOS Camera .
Canon’s “Cinema” line of cameras are dedicated video cameras that use the same family of lenses as Canon DSLRs and pack a ton of power into versatile bodies with better image quality then any DSLR camera.
We also pay careful attention to the sound recording. We use various techniques involving wireless microphones, tapping into the venue sound system. We are experts at hiding them and placing discreetly so that they work away in the background .
I am constantly updating my gear for my wedding couples to be able to offer them the absolute best quality currently available. No expense is spared in providing the best quality equipment for my wedding couples!

Why if these cameras are so good not everyone is using them ?

There is a major difference between using a cinema camera and a regular hd video camera, and knowledge and experience are crucial especially during a live event. Remember in weddings, there is no second shot, thus, focus becomes a critical point, especially during low light situations inside a church when there is shallow depth of field. In plain English, it means that you have to manually change the focus as a bride is walking down the aisle. Follow focus is in itself a career, so in this case, the cinematographer needs to master cinematography as well as focus pulling.

How do you handle booking ?

I am excited to work with couples that are excited to work with me! I am strictly first come first serve, booking on a deposit-received basis. Our deposit to hold the day is 200eur. The balance of payment is due in full on the wedding date.

What happens if the pricing changes in the future ?

Our costs are fixed at the time of booking. So you are protected from future price increases.

Can I have the raw footage ?

Sorry, I don’t provide the raw footage. It’s probably the one thing I am not really flexible on. I believe my clients are hiring me to make an artful film of their wedding day, and trust me, raw footage has not been colour corrected ( I shoot with canon c-log, picture style that is very flat to retain as much information as possible ) and the colour grade this footage in the final films. Raw footage has not been edited down to remove camera movements or to enhance audio quality, etc..
