Videography

INFO FOR VIDEOGRAPHY

Ceremony, DVD of Raw Footage, Edited Video, High Definition Video, Invitation DVD, Montage - Childhood / Dating, Montage - Music Dubbed Over, Montage - Wedding Highlights, Multiple Cameras, Multiple Videographers, Online Highlight Films, Pre-Ceremony, Reception, Rehearsal Dinner
What formats can the final video be in?
DVD
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Are you a commercial studio or a home-based business?
We are a home-based business.
Do you offer demo DVDs for potential clients to look at?
Yes.
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
Depending on the package, I offer multiple types of videography coverage, ranging from raw footage to tightly edited to highlight videos. It is all based on the client's personal preference.
Describe any special editing services you offer:
Unless otherwise requested, and depending on the ceremony length, I edit all of the captured footage into roughly an hour to and hour and a half video. All the unedited raw footage can be ordered separately if desired.
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Yes. I own a professional on camera light that is used if necessary.
How many videographers do you work with?
I am the principal videographer, but I sometimes bring an assistant to operate the second camera during the ceremony and assist me throughout the day.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
Yes. I encourage a meeting between myself and potential clients if possible. This gives me a chance to get a good idea of how to shoot the wedding and how I can fulfill any certain needs or requests of the clients.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. I personally shoot and edit every wedding I book, unless otherwise indicated to the client upon the signing of the contract.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I never personally shoot two weddings in one day. However, I sometimes book two weddings in one weekend.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
Yes. I have a network of videographers and assistants that could fill in should I become unavailable. However, as indicated before, becoming unavailable for any reason is VERY unlikely.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I bring two high definition digital camcorders, 2 tripods and a case of accessories.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I usually take a short break while everyone is eating dinner. I found that filming guests during dinner is sometimes obnoxious, so I find another room close-by to eat my dinner in order to allow the guests to eat in peace. Other than that, I do not take breaks during the day.
Do you charge overtime?
Yes. The contract will indicate how many hours I will be covering the event. An additional $50/hour will be assessed for anything beyond that.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
Of course. Raw footage is always a great thing to have. My Diamond Package includes all of the unedited raw footage on DVD. If you book any other package, you may add-on the raw footage for an additional $100.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
Yes. All of my work is copyrighted. However, if a client specifically requests that I do not use their footage for promotional purposes, I will accomodate.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
I usually take editing input in our meeting before the event. Some brides have "mapped out" how they want their video to flow. Others have given me a few ideas verbally about how they want their video edited. The video is yours, so it should be constructed however you want. As far as editing with the client present, this is very difficult because I spend at least 20 cumulative hours editing each wedding.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
Usually within 8-12 weeks after the wedding.
Do you require a minimum number of hours to book?
No.

After speaking with a number of videographers in the Orange County area, I was so relieved to finally stumble acorss Charles Amante on Wedding Wire. From the get-go, he was incredibly responsive and receptive to my ideas--which wasn't the case with those I had spoken to previously. He did not bat an eye when I requested he be present at our wedding for approx 12 grueling hours so I could be certain to capture everything. Charles was a delight to be around--my friends and family adored him and I felt entirely comofrtable in his presence all day. He managed to be "everywhere" without necesarily being seen. Following the wedding, Charles' follow-through has been impeccable. He is honest, hard-working, and exceptionally talented....his amazing work truly speaks for itself. Not to mention, the prices he charges for his work cannot be beat!

Charles was so great to work with. He always got back to us in a timely fashion and I knew I could count on him to capture all the great little moments on our wedding day. He did not let us down! We went with the diamond package so we could have him there the whole day and he was able to really able to capture the day from getting ready to our send off. As a surprise he even did a separate video for the surprise bride/bridesmaid dance! We looked at some other videographers but their pricing was outrageous. Charles was very reasonable for all he included. We would highly recommend future brides/grooms to use Charles Amante!

Charles was very easy to work with and practically made himself invisible, so it didn't feel like we were being followed by paparazzi on the day of our wedding. This was something I really appreciated! He even arrived early! He followed through with everything he said he would do and had the video to us in the time that we expected. Thank you Charles for being one of the best vendors that we worked with!

Charles did a great job for our wedding! We met many months before the wedding was going to occur and we mapped out exactly what to expect and how things would work. He always stayed in close contact with me when there was nothing to be done between the wedding and right after I proposed to Katherine which was a period of roughly 8 months. I had absolutely no reservations of whether he would come through or not which helped me a great deal so I could put my attention on everything else! Phew it was definitely a stressful 8 months and when the rehearsal and wedding came he did everything we had hoped for and more. He was courteous, profesional, honest, hardworking, and more! Anyways our wedding videos and highlights turned out great and we were very pleased to watch them. In fact they turned out to be better than we had anticipated which goes to show you how much hard work Charles put into them! The thing that stands out most to me about using him was that he was there for me personally. As he was shooting the guys part of the wedding we had a chance to talk about my personal feelings and how nervous I was and although I had many other guys to talk to, Charle's help and encouragement was just as appreciated and needed and he had plenty comforting words to say on my big day! With all that said, I will definitely be using Charles again for whatever videography purposes I may have!

Charles did such a fantastic job on our wedding videos. We received our video yesterday and were totally blown away at the packaging -- it looked like a movie, featuring myself and my husband!
We found Charles on 1-800-Registry.com. We asked to interview him via Skype since we were in different cities and decided to go with him right away. Charles arrived on time the day of our wedding and was extremely professional throughout the evening. Actually, I rarely remember seeing him, which means he did a good job at keeping a low profile.
We were expecting to receive our final product within six weeks of our wedding date but it was delayed by a few weeks due to Charles and his wife having a baby, but we were patient as there was no need to harass him about it. He stayed in touch with us to inform us that he hadn't forgotten about us and was working on our video, but that we would receive it later than planned.
When our video was done, Charles emailed us to let us know that it was on its way, and for our patience he provided us with a FREE highlight video and link to post online, our complete raw footage (which I don't believe we paid for originally), and 4 copies of our edited video with exceptional personalized packing. The video superseded our expectations. I cried when I first watched it.
It was a pleasure working with Charles and we totally recommend his services. We truly believe God sent him to us, since the moment we read his bio on his website.
Charles, you were a major part of our celebration. Just as important as our guests! We pray God blesses you in every aspect of your life and that you find favor in everything you do. God bless you and your family!

Charles Amante was the Videographer for my daughter's wedding and did an amazing job of capturing a Magical Day for all of us! His professionalism and care for detail was so appreciated. He caught the essence of the joy we felt on that special day from capturing close ups of us with happy expressions as well as zoomed in on the little details of our venue and decor.

Charles included the many important moments of the day, including the beauty of the Bride and Groom's love for each other during the ceremony with the special readings and Pastor's words and then he caught every detail of the awesome First Dance of the Newlyweds! (Later Charles even put that up on Utube for us!) During the reception, Charles included the special speeches and funny moments within that time, while still being able to later include the fun on the dance floor. We also enjoyed the format of the video, in the way Charles was able to put in music that fit the occasion and yet left in the original sound when appropriate.

Another great addition to the video was the separate interview section of the video. We thoroughly enjoyed it and thought that it was a great idea to have that section as a separate part of the video so that the Wedding Day itself flowed like Romantic storybook.

Additionally, we loved the additional package of the Photo Booth that Charles offered with his wife there managing it. Our guests and Wedding Party enjoyed taking many fun and hilarious pictures and now we have those pictures in a book that captures how the Wedding Day was such a fabulous day for us and our guests!

Thanks so much Charles! We will have wonderful memories for years to come!

Charles and his wife were GREAT!! We originally were not going to have a videographer at our wedding, but in the last few months before the wedding decided to do so. When contacting Charles, he got back to us and provided us with ample information immediately. Based on his great pricing and responsiveness, we decided to book him to shoot our wedding. In the weeks before the wedding, he contacted me to get all necessary information and details for the wedding video. The day of the wedding, Charles and his wife arrived to the venue and took care of EVERYTHING without needing any direction or help, which was extra helpful since things did not go smoothly during the set-up. My husband and I just watched the edited video from Charles and absolutely LOVE it!! He captured all of the perfect moments so we will be able to look back at our wedding day and remember how special our ceremony was and fun our reception was! In addition to the great shots he got, his editing of the video was very professional and music was great! I would definitely recommend Charles to anyone who is looking for a videographer in the area!

I cannot say enough good things about Charles and his work! Our video turned out amazingly and it was so special to watch it back with my new husband. :) We had originally scrapped a videographer because it wasn't going to fit into our budget but then I found Charles Amante and we changed out mind. He was extremely willing to work with us to develop a package that had everything we wanted but that was also in our budget. On the day of the wedding, many people didn't even realize there was a videographer because his style was so unintrusive yet he was still able to capture the most special of moments. I would recommend him to anyone!

If you are the type of Bride who wants your wedding DVD to really reflect your personality, likes and really captures your love story, then Charles Amante is the videographer for you. He was very attentive to what we wanted, the style of our video as well as the montage we had him create for our reception. He took the time to get to know us so that he can create a personalized feel to our video. I can't thank him enough and he also was available to create extra DVDs for those far away relatives that couldnt make it to the actual day. Charles was always there with the video camera not just for our special moments, but he captured all the fun times with our guests and wedding party. I can truly say that he is the only wedding vendor we hired on our wedding that we still keep in touch with because of his professionalism, talent, and we know that we can use his services to capture all of the special moments throughout our life. And that what ever he does, we're going to love.

Charles was always there with the video camera not just for our special moments, but he captured all the fun times with our guests and wedding party. I can truly say that he is the only wedding vendor we hired on our wedding that we still keep in touch with because of his professionalism, talent, and we know that we can use his services to capture all of the special moments throughout our life. And that what ever he does, we're going to love. Read less

Charles shot our wedding in August 2009 and he was a true pleasure to work with! Anytime I had a question before or after the wedding regarding our video, he would respond right away. He captures the day without being intrusive at all, and he put together both an amazing highlight video and also one just for our ceremony. Both are extremely professional and set up like watching a movie, with a full menu and where you can pick whatever scene you want to jump to. We had an Indian wedding and I gave Charles some Indian music to insert in the video and he did a great job incorporating that at all the right moments, my parents were impressed too!! Also, he is a great value, some others cost way more and I'm sure Charles work is comparable to them. I highly recommend his services!!

Charles was a pleasure to work with. We absolutely loved our video, every dollar spent was well worth it. We would highly recommend Charles Amante to our family and friends. We have watched our video a number of times and have sent videos to our family- everyone has really enjoyed watching it, it was put together beautifully! Still photos were also taken at our wedding by Charles wife which were great to have as well. Charles put together a slide show on our DVD with these pictures which was a very nice touch as well.

We can’t thank you enough for the outstanding job you did on the videography for our wedding. Your professionalism, quiet presence and non-obtrusive style were much appreciated. Somehow you were right where you needed to be to capture the important moments without being a distraction to our guests.

As for the final product, were are more than impressed. In addition to the excellent job you did in capturing the moments on tape, the editing, music and creativity in producing the final product deserve commendation. The presentation of the video in DVD format, with the cover and case are very well done. You have truly created a work of art.

Thank you so much for the outstanding work. The video you have created for us will be a timeless memento documenting our most important event. You’re the best!

Awesome video! Charles was extremely professional, did not get in the way of the ceremony at all! Was able to capture incredible moments without my even realizing that he was there. Highly recommended.

Charles did an amazing job filming our wedding! He caught all the 'big' events as well as the little details and private moments that are even more meaningful. He was very responsive and professional to work with and went above and beyond my expectations. My brother and I were both married around the same time and unknowingly we both booked Charles because his services are a great value. We are recommending his videography to our friends and he was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Charles!!!

I am VERY pleased with the video that Charles Amante provided for our wedding! We've watched it so many times and each time find something new and creative we didn't notice the last time. Let me just say that the only reason I did not give 5 full stars for quality is because it would have been nice to have an HD video. That being said, I knew this going into hiring Charles. I was not willing to pay the prices associated with HD quality and fancy producers. Charles Amante was, hands down, the best VALUE I found. Value does not mean cheapest, but for the price we paid, we received SO MUCH and such great editing! I love how he asked for songs we wanted included in the video and also surprised us with including our professional wedding photos on the DVD cover and disc! Such thoughtful touches. Also, what was really nice is that he really blended in during the ceremony/reception. I've had many people say "I didn't even know you had a videographer!" because he wasn't in everyone's faces! Yet surprisingly he still got awesome upclose shots! At the end of the day, I would highly recommend Charles Amante for your video needs!

Charles & his wife did an outstanding job. They capture every important aspect of our special day and produce a fabulous DVD. Would highly recommend Charles' services. We gave copies of the DVD to extended family members that couldn't make our wedding and after watching Charles' production they said 'it was like their were there'.
