A family that has been using me for several years now hired me to make the souvenier video of Maeli’s  Quinceañera in October 2017 at the “Bungalo Event Center” in Cedar Park, Texas.

 

Bronze Package Explained

austintxweddingvideo.com/2017/10/03/bronze/

Congratulations on your upcoming Wedding.

Most folks are initially interested in my BRONZE package because it is the lowest price.  It costs the least because it is the least amount of work and you get the least out of me.

For my SILVER package I will shoot with at least two camera, an hour length ceremony and shoot all of the reception until it ends.

The BRONZE wedding video package is for a less than 30 minute ceremony and reception highlights.   I Will shoot the main parts of the reception, the entrance, the couples dance, the parent dances, cake cutting, bouquet/garter and 2 short ( less than 5 minutes long) toasts,

If your ceremony is longer than 30 minutes, and you want more than just the basics of the reception video-ed, you can get my SILVER package.

 

Quinceañera Videography

In addition to wedding videography, I also love to shoot Quinceañera’s!  Just like a wedding but with more candy and less alcohol!

Here are some samples of Quinceañeras families had me capture on video!

May 23, 2010. Ahh the old days. Standard Definition. Editing in the original Final Cut Pro and NOT Adobe Premiere.

The color and focus on my Sony VX2100 Camera still hold up, even though its not High Definition.

And they’re still such a cute couple I’d love them in any dimensions!

I always wanted to try this ( Go Pro behind the sand jar)!

Go Pros are great for shooting extreme sports and dangerous action shots.
But they often lack the “glamorous” look most families want in a wedding video.

But I always thought they might work hidden around the altar to catch brief moments a big camera wouldn’t fit in. Like behind the candles or over an archway.

Most of the time when the wedding couple is doing something like lighting the unity candle or the sand ceremony or the “Wedding Lasso” their backs are to the audience. And thus, their backs are to my cameras. Who wants to look at THAT?

About 2 years I had one of my “real” cameras behind the “Unity Candle” it looked great on video but it was kind of a distraction in the moment.007)

This was from a small digital camera hidden in the ceiling. Driping Spgs terrace ipod
You certainly wouldn’t want to look at THAT for the whole wedding video, but it’s an acceptable cut away shot.

In addition to my “real” cameras, I tucked my Samsung phone in the bushes behind the altar for THIS shot:

Advancing technology in all things, especially micro cameras, are making my job a LOT easier! I can use multiple cameras and not have to charge my couples any more money!

For my next weddings I plan on using more micro cameras to get lots of unique camera angles.

Youtube is a great place for filmmaking research.  Wedding Videographers like to show off their new ideas and I like to implement them!

“In any creative endeavor, if you see someone doing something you like- copy it! Because I assure you- They did!”

-Michael Caine.

I just typed in “gopro wedding video ” to start my research. Some of the results were just silly, but some were brilliant. All were though provoking.

These folks used several Go Pros to record the whole wedding.  

It’s interesting but I think THAT much fisheye is too much for a whole ceremony. You can see they also used a traditional dslr for other footage.

A good Go Pro on high end drone looks fabulous! ( Reminder! I am NOT claiming I made these!).

A Go Pro hidden in the brides bouquet?!?!? How clever!

I am SO jealous I didn’t think of this!!!
