Complete documentation of the sights, sounds, and emotions of your wedding events using multiple cameras and redundant audio inputs. Cinematic touches, highlights and bridal prep set to music of your choice, wedding party interviews (if desired), five custom-designed DVDs with motion menus in custom cases plus up to five more copies in paper sleeves, and your highlights posted on the Web. Many options, including closed-captioning.

Why would someone like me want to do Special Event Videography? Very simply, most of the events involve people who are together for some special reason. Friends and families come together to celebrate life. They are enjoying themselves, and everyone is happy. How many times in today’s world does that happen? Certainly, not enough. But for me, it can happen every time I start my cameras.

I also bring the perspective of a father who has seen his daughter marry, and knows the value of the video we had made. Just nine years later, there are already people in that video who had passed away or were greatly changed...but we can remember the happy times. My 5- and 8-year old grandchildren are old enough to appreciate their parents’ video and seeing and hearing the great grandparents they never met.

I’ve covered weddings and mitzvahs for more than 25 years, starting with piecing together Super-8 film. It had been a second job for me, but is now my greatest labor. I truly enjoy the technical challenges, the artistic effort, and your satisfaction and enjoyment. I generally limit myself to one job per weekend, and two jobs a month, so I can devote full personal attention to your video. Read less

INFO FOR VIDEOGRAPHY

What primary style do you identify with?
Documentary, Short Form
What do your packages include?
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?

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Are you a commercial studio or a home-based business?
I'm it. I shoot and I edit, and costs are best-controlled by my having my studio in my home.
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
Multiple cameras and microphones are used, although one camera is usually unattended. A second manned camera is an option. Special effects are introduced in editing; my desire to be unobtrusive means that I will stage very little. Unedited footage is available for a nominal charge.
Describe any special editing services you offer:
Photo/video clip montages and Love Story Videos that can introduce your video or be shown at your reception or rehearsal dinner. Rehearsal and rehearsal dinner activities and speeches. Other special events can also be covered, including mitzvahs, sporting events, reunions, etc. Captioning is available.
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
I routinely use a 20W on-camera light during the reception. No lights are used during the ceremony.
How many videographers do you work with?
I have several others who I call on for attended second cameras.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
I'm it. Please, let's meet so we both understand what is desired and what can be provided!
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
As with others, barring acts of God or war.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
One event per weekend. Prefer no more than two in a month.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
I have people I can contact.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Multiple cameras and audio recording equipment (I use mp3 recorders in multiple locations). Several tripods, a monopod, two microphone stands. Two on-camera lights and batteries.
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 may sit down for 5 minutes two or three times...otherwise, I am on the go throughout!
Do you charge overtime?
Not on my unlimited package!
Do you give access to your raw footage?
An option for a fee. I actually have a raw footage only package for someone willing to do their own editing!
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
Yes.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
One review when video is ready for encoding to DVD or Blu-Ray.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
Depends on time of year and number of prior jobs in the queue. Usually takes about 14 weeks.

Allan was wonderful. The wedding was at Moxley Gardens at the University of Maryland. He created such a beautiful video with the gardens, flowers and fountains also highlighted. The background music which was added to the video was perfect.

Allan is a great man who is passionate about his videos. We cannot wait to see our video! Allan helped us find a bilingual DJ, which almost felt impossible. Allan attended our rehearsal and was at the start and end of our wedding day! If you want a recording of your wedding don't go with Allan. If you want a movie of the story of your love, Allan is your guy!

Allan is an exceptional videographer who gave us more than we could have ever hoped for in our wedding video. His edits, interviews, and personal attention before, during, and after our wedding demonstrated a level of customer service uncommonly seen. Allan takes the time to know the faces and relationships of important family members to help him appropriately piece together and personalize the video. We are incredibly happy with Allan’s work and highly recommend him.

Allan was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. He came to the rehearsal just to get a view of the church, check out set up and meet us prior to the ceremony. He was on time to everything and got some really great photage.
I also have to add that he was always straight forward and kept us in the loop 100% on everything that was going on.

Allan was wonderful! My husband and I could not be happier with our choice for a videographer. He is dedicated to creating truly unique videos that capture the joy of your event. With Allan, you don't just get a wedding video - you get a full documentary of the event from start to finish. After our first meeting with him, it was clear to us that he has a passion for this and as a result treats each client and their video with care and gives it his full attention.

He went above and beyond capturing footage of our wedding - from the rehearsal, to the salon that morning, interviews throughout the reception, and even an interview with my husband and I after all the events of the day finished. His prices are very competative and he provides better comprehesive video coverage than all of the other videographers that I interviewed.

Allan is an absolute pleasure to work with and we simply cannot say enough good things about him. Please feel free to contact me with any questions on my expereince with Allan. I am more than happy to be a reference.

I have known Allan personally and professionally for many, many years and not only know the quality of his work on my wedding, but on several other weddings as well. Allan is creative, hard-working, and very professional. His creative eye added much to my wedding video that other videographers could not have provided and his skill and professionalism made the quality of my video unrivaled. Two thumbs up!
