Wait Time For the Perfect Video

David and I often wonder, when some industry professionals look at us in confusion, as we tell them it usually takes 3 months for a couple to receive their edited wedding video. A bit taken a back at the long length of the process, David and I kindly explain- that the shooting is not even half of the work, it is all within the editing. Of course you have to have amazing shots to edit a great masterpiece wedding video, but that's not the half of it. After all we are taking something that is totally in the raw and adding to it the reality of life that existed that day- not an easy task. Certainly, the most creative task I can think of.
That is why when looking for a wedding videographer creativity should be the word of the day when scrutinizing the final product. Remember the person you hire should easily be working for 40 hours or more on your wedding video, otherwise they aren't really doing anything for you. There may be something to the old adage saying "Good things take time"- and it holds true for the wedding video as well. Just a little advice we offer you to ponder.

    I was happy when you told my fiance and myself that it would be within 4 months...that seemed like a perfectly reasonable time to me. In searching for a wedding videographer, I have come across far too many who have claimed to get the video back in about a month. Such a short time frame concerned me, leaving me to wonder how much time they would actually be spending on the video, and how much would just be "cookie cutter" effects (if any effects at all). I have to say that I was VERY impressed with your demo and know that my own video will be WELL worth the wait!
