Super 8 Pickups is an option for someone who treasures the classic look of vintage home movies. The film stock we use is Kodak Black and White Reversal Film and creates a stylishly grainy look. This coverage option is to pick up shots with film during key moments of the event such as getting ready, the ceremony, and photographs, which will then be edited together with the digital footage in the Wedding Day Feature as well as cut together into a Super 8 Recap. For more extensive coverage, other film options are available upon request.

Additional Videographer is recommended for events where more extensive coverage is desired. This can include events with over 250 guests, when the schedule requires the need for simultaneous coverage in two different locations, or when extra coverage is desired. Having an additional videographer allows for more thorough coverage of the event so that the edited Feature offers an enhanced re-telling of your day.

Confessionals are a staged area at an event where an additional Camera Operator and Producer will be on hand to interview guests as a Special Feature for the final DVD.

Commentary Reel is a filmed interview up to 2 hours with the Bride and Groom prior to their wedding day. The interview will be edited into the Wedding Day Feature or added as a Special Feature on the final DVD.

This feature offers a unique perspective on your wedding and allows you to reminisce about everything leading up to the special day.
