Wedding and Event Videography

Shane did great at filming the video FAQs! There was a small hiccup along the way but he rectified it almost instantly and I'm happy with the results.

Shane is by far the best Videographer out there.  I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone that is professional, easy to communicate with, and dependable. He put a lot of thought and time into creating amazing videos for our website. We will definitely work with him again!

Wedding and Event Videography

Although I haven't seen the finished product of what Shane and his team shot for me that really is not important at this stage because if the video he shot is even close to the quality of his responsiveness, flexibility, and professionalism, I'm not worried about it. We had a lot to overcome with this video shoot and we were in constant communication via phone and email for weeks leading up to this event and he was on top of everything. There were a lot of unexpected demands and unnecessary stresses placed on me and Shane by my clients the event meeting planners. Shane rolled with the punches helped me to brainstorm solutions to the unrealistic and misunderstood demands being placed on us. I'm excited to see what came from the video shoot that also may have been negatively impacted by circumstances outside of his and my control during the event as Shane again stepped up in those moments to improv solutions immediately in the moment. He truly came prepared for any eventuality, that is the sign of true professional.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our standard rate for a single camera operator and equipment for a full day is $950. On most jobs we recommend using a lighting professional as well, our lighting gaffer is $750 for a full day rate. If you need a make up professional we can supply that as well. We can scale up and down your production based on your specific needs. Our post production services are $100 per hour and include color grading and visual effects.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get an over view of the project the customer has in mind and then look at any sample videos they have seen in the past. Looking at work the customer likes, gives me a good idea of what they want in a final product.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attend a minimum of 2 seminars and or courses per year while viewing 10 to 20 hours of online content. This industry changes daily and you have to stay on top.

No problem: we have pros for every job.
