  1. Why have a videographer?
    The number one regret for weddings and special events is often "we didn't get a video". Video is the medium we use to communicate with our family and friends today. A video can capture the sounds, sights, emotions and overall tones of your special day better than pictures can. There's nothing like seeing your family members in action, hearing their voices, and watching them enjoy the day. Your children, grandchildren, and extended family will all be glad the day has been captured in a way that will allow them to re-live the festivities whenever they choose! Many people also attest to the fact that their special event goes by at a dizzying pace, and after all those months of preparation! Because you’re going to be so busy and involved in what’s happening, you’re going to miss a lot of what’s going on around you. Your wedding video will bring you back to all those special moments we weren't able to see during the event.
  2. What kind of camera do you use?
    At Titus Productions, we use the latest in HD technology. The Sony PMW-EX1 is a 3-chip, 1/2 inch cmos sensor camera that captures 1920x1080 native lines of resolution and offers the 1080-24P film like digital format. This allows us to provide true HD footage. Many video packages out there are labeled HD, but yield a highly compressed version known as HDV. This is not true HD, nor will it provide you the quality you expect. When comparing video packages, always refer to camera model and image sensor size. HD quality is directly related to the bit rate at which the camera captures. The Sony EX1 captures 35 MB/s per second while many competitors cameras capture at 25 MB/s or lower.
  3. Can I have my wedding videographer shoot things besides the ceremony and reception?
    In addition to your ceremony and reception, we can be available for pre-ceremony coverage, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner coverage, and interview sessions.
  4. How will you pick up the audio?
    For weddings, we use a UHF wireless mic system which is usually worn by the groom or officiant to capture the wedding ceremony. During the reception, we will use the on-camera shotgun mic for speeches and dancing coverage. Don’t forget to speak up! If your sound expert or DJ will allow, we can also hook into the direct audio system being used at your event.
  5. How long will it take for me to receive the finished video?
    Turn-around time is approximately 4-6 weeks from the time all editing materials and music selections are received. Raw footage packages may be received 2-4 weeks from the wedding date.
  6. How does payment work?
    We require a 50% non-refundable deposit with return of the signed contract to secure the date. The remaining payment is due one week prior to the wedding date. Please remember that until your contract and deposit are received, the requested date is open for booking.
  7. Do I have to provide the videographer with food?
    When a videographer shoots six or more hours, meal arrangements are expected. If you have a vendor table at the event, this is where the videographer and assistant will sit and eat. During weddings, we ask that we be allowed to eat when the bride and groom are eating so that we can follow them with the camera once the action resumes.
  8. What kind of DVD format do you use?
    Dual layer discs are most commonly used for consumer DVD burning, and should work with both +R and -R players. We also use Blu-ray discs for our edited packages, and you can always upgrade your dic format to Blu-ray for an additional cost of $75.
