Most wedding packages include a full-length wedding video with a run-time of about 60-120 minutes long, where you will see and hear everything just as it happened, We call it raw footage. Every package also includes a 3-10 minute edited highlight reel available online and on your professionally authored DVD or Blu-ray.
3. How long does it take to get my wedding video?
We put great care into producing high-quality wedding videos for every one of our clients. The typical turn-around is 8 to 12 weeks, and up to 16 weeks during peak season. We make it a priority to communicate the status of your project as we know how excited our clients are to see the footage from their wedding or special event. Most do not know the behind-the-scenes process it takes to produce a beautiful wedding video. There is many stages to production such as cataloguing, archiving, then there is the review and rough-cut. Next is the final cut where music, transitions and video and audio effects are applied. Then there is exporting, DVD and/or Blu-ray menu authoring, finally there is the custom designed DVD/BR case, then it’s off to the mail!

6. What is the benefit of a wedding video?
Wedding photography has been a long standing must have for planning any wedding. And a wedding video was really expensive and only available for those with a large budget. With the digital age, wedding videography has really taken off. With smaller DSLR cameras and amazing lenses, really dynamic angles and beautiful high-definition footage is much more easily obtainable.
As a professional wedding videography company, our experience gives us an edge over “Uncle Johnny.” We are always ready to shoot, ensuring we capture every moment. And we are always ready for the unexpected. We strive to get the best picture and sound quality with professional lighting and audio equipment.
We know what to look for. Every wedding has had a ton of pain staking planning that has gone into it, and we notice. Including shots of your hand-crafted decor, favors, centerpieces and table dressings are just a few things that really set the tone for your wedding video. You would not normally get to see your guests reaction to your custom designed place cards or wedding programs, because you will be so busy throughout your special day.
Also our footage will be less biased than “Uncle Johnny’s.” Your mother’s brother might be more interested in his own children, brothers and sisters. And while I am sure Little Johnny is super cute, you might be more interested in seeing if those dance lessons paid off during your first dance.
A wedding video is like a time capsule for your family. This will be the first time your two families come together, and shots of great grandma and grandpa will be priceless in years to come. Those 5 and 6 month olds will be 5 and 6 year olds before you know it. A wedding video is a great way to capture one of the most special days spent with your closest family and friends for many years to come.
7. How many hours are included?
Every wedding or event is totally different. We try to remain as flexible as possible. Typically, our event video coverage begins at the start of the ceremony for weddings. We wrap up shooting at approximately 9:00PM. That gives us enough time to capture all the main events at your reception.
We are so happy we went with
Uptown Video Productions! Not only a great price but great service and we love our video! Thank you Uptown!!
We knew we wanted a video done
of our wedding in addition to our pictures to truly capture the look and feel of the event. We found Uptown Video productions during a search on-line and were impressed with the quality of their videos and their reasonable pricing. We booked with them and hoped for a great video of the wedding. They arrived promptly and captured ALL of our event – from pre-ceremony pictures to the last dance. The video staff were incredibly helpful and courteous, and often times, I didn’t even realize they were there. They worked wonderfully with our photography staff to make sure to not appear in our pictures in the background. A few weeks later, Don worked with us via email to finalize our preferences and compiled our video. The result was beyond our expectations. We were so happy we made the investment…it was absolutely worth every penny! We highly recommend Uptown Video productions for your videography needs!
Please review us!
We would love for you to share your experiences with us.
We were originally not going to do a wedding video due to the cost and then about 3 weeks before our wedding we decided to look into videography, I found out about Uptown Video productions Whilst looking for a DJ and was ecstatic about their options as well as their affordability. We were impressed with their professionalism and how they were at our wedding from beginning to end and were even more impressed with our final DVD of the wedding. I would use them again in a heartbeat! Thank you for preserving our memories in such an amazing way.
