Cinematic, Documentary, Storytelling, Traditional
What do your packages include?
Ceremony, DVD of Raw Footage, Edited Video, High Definition Video, Montage - Childhood / Dating, Montage - Wedding Highlights, Multiple Cameras, Multiple Videographers, Online Highlight Films, Pre-Ceremony, Reception, Rehearsal Dinner
What formats can the final video be in?
Blu-Ray, DVD
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Are you a commercial studio or a home-based business?
My business is run out of a home office. I run a full-time business and all of my equipment is professional and state of the art. I also have equipment and liability insurance.
Do you offer demo DVDs for potential clients to look at?
I no longer mail out a DVD samples. I have many video samples to view on my website, blog and facebook page. Clients are also encouraged to come to my home office where they can view both DVD and Blu-Ray samples.
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
I normally produce a tightly edited, High Definition video that gets mastered to Blu-ray disk and/or DVD. I use multiple cameras. I offer a bonus DVD of out takes as one of our enhancements. I rarely use special effects unless i can be tastefully done (do not want it to look cheesy which tends to be more apparent as time goes on).
Describe any special editing services you offer:
I can edit Standard Definition or High Definition footage and author both Standard DVD's and Blu-ray disks. I have a state of the art editing system. I myself have many years of experience in both Broadcast and Event Television Production and my partner is catching up to me.
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Yes, I have access to an array of lighting instruments but for weddings and events where we need to be unobtrusive, I use state of the art Sony low light cameras and a small light on top of my cameras, usually just for the reception.
How many videographers do you work with?
I am the chief videographer and I have a stable of excellent videographers to draw from. I usually work with a second videographer, so there are normally two of us at a wedding event.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
I encourage a free consultation at my home office where the bride can meet me, the chief videographer. The 2nd videographer would be hired based on the wedding package chosen by the bride and would not be present during the consultation but of course would meet the weddding couple on their wedding day.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, absolutely.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No, I do not book ourselves for more than one wedding in a day. As far as the whole weekend, I would only do that if both weddings were close by and both relatively short events. A long wedding day is physically draining and I would not want the 2nd wedding on any weekend to suffer due to exhaustion.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
Yes, as stated above, I have a stable of videographers to draw from if I become sick. However, this has never happened. I frequently exercise and keep myself in excellent shape.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I normally bring up to 3 High Definition cameras, 3 tripods, numerous microphones, a Steadicam device, lighting equipment and other accessories. All this equipment is neatly packed and stored on site, out of the way of guests.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, I have a backup HD camera, extra microphones and extra lighting equipment.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We normally only take breaks when there is really nothing happening, which doesn't happen often. One of us is always at the location in case something comes up that cannot be filmed over.
Do you charge overtime?
I charge a nominal fee if we stay over the hours booked on the contract. However, we do not stay unless it is clear that the bride and/or groom request one or both of us to stay and are aware of the extra charges.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
Yes, I can supply raw footage on DVD in the form of a bonus DVD of out takes. I normally do not include all the raw footage of what is already on the edited version. This has been a better deal for our clients. They all love it.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
My contract states that I can use some of the footage as samples to show to other prospective clients, or to put up on my website, blog, and/or business facebook page. If there are privacy issues I can enable password protection on the web or not post the video at the client's request. I do not use any footage in contests.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
I normally do not have anyone at my work place involved in the editing process, it just takes too long. However, if couples have specific ideas either before or on the day of their wedding, I include their requests during the shooting and editing process. I also encourage couples to pick out the music.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
I can usually get everything completed and in the bride's hands in about a month, but it may take be longer once the fall season arrives (when things get backed up). The actually delivery date range is anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months.
Do you require a minimum number of hours to book?
My starting package includes up to 5 hours on site. This would be my minimum numbers of hours from start of ceremony to end of reception.

Stephen from Dockside video is a true professional. During the wedding ceremony and reception he did not interfere with the events at all but managed to get a great video! We received the video very quickly after the wedding and it was edited very professionally. The video captured all the great moments of the wedding and I really felt like I was reliving the day!

I could not be happier with video! It was very high quality and at a great price!

If you are looking for beautiful and creative wedding videography, please look no further than Stephen Gradin, at Dockside Video, in Nottingham, MD. From the moment we met with him at his home office, we were drawn to his ideas, creativity, and most of all, his kindness. He took as much time as we needed and never once pressured us into a decision. He showed us a few examples of his work which we found so impressive. We had looked at other videographers before meeting with Stephen, and no one compared to his body of work and class of videography. Stephen is very flexible with his packages and lets you add things on during the whole process which enabled us to really see what we wanted by time the wedding arrived.
The part we loved the most, were the short interviews done with our bridal party and family members which then were heard on the video as each of them were shown. We strongly recommend getting this feature, as it was so special to hear all their words.
At the ceremony and reception, Stephen and his partner were AWESOME! Not only did they capture the greatest moments of us, our wedding party, and our guests, but his ideas are so creative! Not to mention, it is hard to notice him, which we found surprising since he captured everything. We had a viewing party of our video and everyone was blown away and asked who did it. We were so happy to give Stephen’s name and Dockside Video.
Thanks so much, Stephen! We LOVE our video so much and will cherish it forever!!!! You are the BEST!!!

Stephen and his crew were absolutely amazing from the start. His work is top notch and he does a great job of capturing all the moments of your day. From start to finish he was probably our most organized and accessible vendor and we are grateful we were able to find him to film our wedding. He is very passionate about his work and everything he does and it shows in his final product. Compared to the final videos we have seen from friends and family that have been married our video is far and ahead the best thanks to Stephen. Six months later we have still been in contact ordering more copies and additional footage for friends and family and he has been very accomodating. We would recommend Dockside 100% to anyone looking for a top of the line and very professional videographer. Thanks again to Dockside Video Productions and Stephen for helping us relive of special day.

Dockside Video(Stephen Gradin) was far superior than other video production companies. The response I got from family members about video was phenomenal. Everyone has been asking for the information for the videographer. Stephen and his team were so professional during the event. The video captured EVERYTHING we asked for and the music selections couldn't have been better. Thank you soooo much Dockside for capturing our day as beautifully as it was in reality!!

My husband and I got married in November 2010 and are thrilled that we hired Stephen Gradin of Dockside Video Productions to capture our wedding on film. We met with Stephen last summer at his home to view some of his wedding videos and discuss our upcoming wedding. After viewing Stephen's work, we knew instantly that we wanted him to film our wedding day.

We chose to have our Catholic ceremony videotaped in its entirety, with highlights from our reception. Another plus was that Stephen videotapes in High Definition so all images are crisp and as clear as can be.

Stephen was easy to reach over the months leading up to our wedding and kept in touch to make sure he had all of the details about our ceremony and reception so that no important detail was missed.

He attended our rehearsal at the church the night before to get a better sense of where the best shots would be during our ceremony. We chose package level 2, which included 3 cameras and two camermen, Stpehen and his assistant. This was the best decision as the church we were married in is very large and has intricate construction, so all the special details could be captured perfectly.

Stephen is extremely kind and professional. He arrived to the church well in advance to videotape the outside areas of the church and the inside details before the ceremony began. He captured everything we wanted from our ceremony and we did not even notice there were 3 cameras around.

After the ceremony, Stephen headed to our reception site to interview guests for our video, which was a wonderful touch. He stayed throughout the reception and captured all of the details we wanted (first dance, parent dance, toasts, dancing, cake cutting, bouquet toss). We also had 30 minutes of Polka dancing, which Stephen taped in its entirety to include in our video.

Stephen kept in touch over the next month after our wedding to keep us up to date on his progress with our video. Although 3 DVDs were included with our video package, we chose to purchase an additional Blue-Ray DVD since the video was filmed in High Definition and we knew the details from Stephen's work would be incredible.

About 3 weeks after our wedding, our photographer called to let us know that she lost one of her memory cards, which included all coverage from the morning and afternoon of our wedding day. Specifically, none of the ceremony was captured by her or her assistant. We were devasted and starting reaching out to our vendors to see what we could do.

I immediately thought of Stephen and reached out to him to see if perhaps he could make still shots from his video of our wedding, as he had taped the ceremony in its entirety. Those special moments (my father walking me down the aisle, the first kiss, the vows, and the ring exchange) were all lost by my still photographer, but I hoped that we could obtain those images from Stephen's video. Stephen got in touch with me right away and said he would be happy to help in any way he could.

We received our wedding video the following month and viewed it to see what areas of the film we would like to make still shots from. The video was absolutely beautiful, full of all of the details and emotions from our special day.

Stephen invited us over to his home again to view the video together and pull still shots from the footage so that we could develop pictures to use in our wedding album. He is extremely detail oriented and took his time making sure we found the best angles for each picture we wanted. Because Stephen shot his video in High Definition, he was able to obtain a higher quality of still frames that were very clear and detailed. Within a day after our meeting, Stephen went through the pictures we chose to make and edited each one to ensure they were the richest format possible.

We are so thankful to Stephen of Dockside Video Productions for not only the beautiful video of our wedding day but for his kindness and willingness to help us by making still frame pictures from his video of our wedding when we were left without pictures from our ceremony due to our photographer losing one of her memory cards containing those images.

We highly recommend Stephen's work and are thrilled with the outcome of our wedding video and the still frames he was able to produce from it. We not only have an amazing video to look back on over the years, but beautifully detailed still frames from our ceremony that we can use to put in our wedding album. Thank you Stephen!

When we met Stephen and saw samples of his work, we decided to hire him on the spot. He was warm and welcoming, and his professionalism shows thru on all levels. Stephen took the time to come to the rehearsal to see the church, and this is evidence of his dedication to getting the best video footage. We were so excited when the video arrived. It far exceeded our expectations, and we were very impressed with all the emotions he was able to capture. The multiple cameras and wireless mics he used really picked up everything going on and the audio was perfect. As we watch the video over time, it never fails to bring us back to that special day and it's as if we're re-living that day all over again which is a testament to the excellent videography and emotional capturing or our special day. The personal interviews were such a wonderful touch. I would definitely recommend getthing this option. Likewise, I would definitely recommend Dockside Video for your special event.

When it came time to select a videographer for our wedding, there was no doubt in our minds that Stephen was the right man for the job. Our very close friends had used him for their wedding, and had nothing but great things to say. After viewing their wedding video and speaking to them about their experiences, we knew that we could count on Stephen to provide us with the quality and professionalism that we expected for our special occasion... and, we were right! By the way, the HD Blu-ray that Stephen offers is truly AMAZING! For those of you that have viewed HD Blu-ray videos, you know what I'm talking about. We're so pleased with our overall experience with Dockside Video, and are so thankful to Stephen for helping us preserve all of the wonderful memories from our wedding day.

Not only was it the best wedding video we have ever seen, but he also finished it very quickly. We have some friends who recently got married and it took them over 6 months to get their video. Stephen had ours in less than a month.

Not only was it the best wedding video we have ever seen, but he also finished it very quickly. We have some friends who recently got married and it took them over 6 months to get their video. Stephen had ours in less than a month. Read less

Dockside Video did a great job on my wedding in March of 2008. Stephen is wonderful to work with, was always available for questions and did an amazing job on our wedding video. From our first meeting with Stephen we knew he was the guy for the job, he showed us his previous work and made us feel comfortable in his abilities to provide great service and a great wedding video. Stephen and I were in contact throughout the wedding process and he even came to our rehearsal. The day of the wedding he was there on time and was ready to get to work. The interviews were a great addition to our video and it really made us feel good to hear what our friends and family had to say about us. From start to finish Stephen was great and we got our moneys worth. We got our video within about a month and I cried about 5 times watching it because the video captured all the magical moments of our wonderful day. Definitely recommend Dockside Video, Stephen is awesome.

Dockside Video videotaped our wedding on one of the busiest wedding days ever (07/07/07). They were timely, easy to work with and worth every penny. Family and friends have continued to comment on how professional the video is. It surpassed our expectations and is something we truly treasure today. The video was completed on time which is not what we can say for our photographer whom we're still waiting on some pictures for.

My wife was skeptical about getting a videographer but now she says it's the best thing we purchased!

The dvd was one of the best parts of our wedding, we had so much fun...and so did our friends. My husband and I were so happy that it was all captured on a DVD for us! We have watched it over and over again, laughing until we had stitches in our sides. Steve was so nice and helpful (yet unobtrusive), we didn't even notice we were being recorded during the entire ceremony. Many of our friends have since used him, since viewing our video!

Stephen and his assistant did a great job filming and editing our wedding video. We were presented with a personalized DVD and DVD case that was created using images from our wedding day. My husband and I have enjoyed watching the video several times since our wedding and will continue to share it with friends and family.

The wedding video that Stephen created for my husband and I is amazing. He captured moments that without our video I would have never seen, and he captured moments that I was part of in such a way that still give me goosebumps when I watch them today, 4 years later. Our video was one of the best investments from that day that we made and I'm so glad that we chose Stephen for the job. His professionalism, responsiveness, and attitude leading up to and on the day of our wedding were exactly what I was expecting and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best wedding video possible, it's definitely an investment worth making!

Stephen was very professional and we were thrilled with the final outcome! We never imagined how powerful a video could be to capture every emotion from walking down the isle and the exchange of rings to the reception and all the dancing. The video produced by Dockside is timeless and the best decision, besides getting married, we made to remember our wedding day.

We also enjoyed the interview prior to our wedding day, which our responses were input into the wedding video. Our wedding was uniterrupted even though we had a video being taken. Stephen was also very tactful and intuitive with his production. My husband and I highly recommend Stephen and his natural skills in videography. He is also very passionate, which allows him to be the best in the business.

Sincerely,

Emily and Jim Morrison

It is with the utmost confidence I would recommend Stephen Gradin for wedding videography. I was married last summer and it's true what everyone says: Your wedding day will fly by and be over before you know it. There are a lot of things you miss during the day of your wedding and Stephen Gradin captured every moment with class and style. The quality of the DVD far exceeded my expectations for a wedding video. From the editing, to the music, to the presentation, the video is one I can look back on and treasure for years to come.

I recently was cleaning and stumbled upon my wedding video. I watched it once again and it felt like it was my wedding day all over again. I do not even have the words to express the amount of gratitude I have for Stephen Gradin for capturing my wedding day in such a beautiful and professional manner. I recommend Stephen for every special event you want to capture. He is fantastic!

I think what makes Stephen great is that he is extremely organized!! Luckily, I'm an organized person as well, so we were able to work well with each other. After seeing numerous disasterous wedding videos from our family, we wanted to make sure our wedding video was one that we were proud to show off to our families and friends. We were so happy with the final product. We got a blu-ray copy along with additional dvds. The sound quality...Amazing! You can hear everyone, and it was so crystal clear. He even got a nice shot of my husband crying at the alter! The video quality...great! He was able to edit the video so that it was actually entertaining to watch! Sometimes, I just pop in the video and watch the highlights video. There is probably only one downside. Like I said, he's very organized and definitely has a plan for everything. I asked for interviews, so he gave me a few questions to share with the bridal party so that they can plan what they would say. Of course, none of them really prepared, so he did get frustrated (which was visible) when one of my bridesmaid couldn't figure out what to say. I wasn't there to witness it, but it was something my bridesmaids told me.

Anyway, I was extremely happy with the final product! I thought for the price, it was a great deal! Do your share and he'll do his!

Stephen is a true professional, very organized and extremely responsive. He got our wedding video to us less than two months after our wedding and was able to capture the essence and feel of the wedding beautifully. The quality is wonderful, and the highlight video set to music was very sweet to watch as well. Definitely reccommend Dockside!
