Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
While we do take pride in capturing all of your great moments without taking the focus away fro you, sometimes the lighting is very poor. Good lighting and great video go hand in hand. We do use a light that attaches to our camera for such occasions if they arise.
How many videographers do you work with?
There are two videographers as part of our company, but we do have 1 other that is used on occasion( if we book more than one wedding in the same day)
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
Ray Beaudoin, the owner and lead videographer with Vegas Bones Productions likes to meet with every bride and groom at some point. There is a pre-wedding interview(Love Story) included with the Premier and All Access Wedding Packages. This allows both parties to get to know each other.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Unless stated otherwise in your wedding contract or a sudden illness or injury comes up, Ray Beaudoin will be your videographer. In the case of an illness, videographer duties go to our second videographer, Cristina. She is fully trained, creative, and capable of giving you a great video.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
For the most this does not happen. Our team is small and we like to keep everything consistent. We sometimes do multiple weddings in the same weekend, usually in the summer when most brides in Colorado get married.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
Yes. Cristina Beaudoin is the replacement, should Ray become unavailable.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We film all weddings in High definition. Our primary camera is the Panasonic HMC-150. We also use Sennheiser microphones, wireless and shotgun. To keep your wedding looking smooth we will use the Glidecam Stabilizer system during portions of your day.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
We always have two cameras on location during your event.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
As stated in the wedding contract, a meal must be provided. The videographer will eat at a time when video is not needed, usually while everyone else is eating.
Do you charge overtime?
All times are set within the contract. If our video services went over a few minutes, that is not a problem. Depending on which package you choose, there are different hours that we are present. If you wanted to add more hours though, we can do so at a rate of $80/hr.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
Yes, you will receive a DVD copy of all raw footage.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
As stated in our contract, we reserve the right to use your video for promotional purposes on our website, etc. We do not hold the rights to your final video, however, and you can do anything you like with it( Copy, disperse, etc.)
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
We will talk at length before hand about anything the client may want to see in their video. However, the editing process is very lengthy and requires a lot of creativity that could be hindered if the client were around while it was happening. That being said, it is our goal to give the bride and groom exactly the video that they want. We may give one(1) copy of the final video for approval before completing the project.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
The contract will state a 65 day timeframe to return the completed video. However, it is always our goal to edit videos as soon as possible. As it happens though, during our busy Summer business we may need the extra time. The final turn around time will be included in the wedding contract.
Do you require a minimum number of hours to book?
Our Wedding Packages cover most of the hours that you would need for an event. It is all inclusive and not hourly. We do have an hourly rate available for extra footage and for special events, but the hourly rate by itself is not available for weddings.
