How many wedding videos do you typically produce at a time? How many weddings do you work each year?

It is not uncommon for videographers to have several projects in the editing/design phase at the same time and we are no exception. I do not double book shooting dates and block out appropriate time

Will you be taking digital photographs? Is there an extra charge for this service?

New York, NY

Our systems are all digital. Some old pros like to talk about the "look" of film being superior, but almost anyone would find it impossible to see the difference. And I shot film for a lot of years
