Frequently Asked Questions
…answered by Seth
First of all, why is it so important to have a video of my event?
Weddings, Mitzvahs, and any other major life milestone events are the most precious moments in our lives, and memories of these moments are priceless. Having a video enables you to “re-experience” the excitement, the emotion, the love and just the overall magic of these occasions over and over again, throughout your entire life. When the day is over and the money is spent, all you have left are these memories.
What differentiates Professional Video from the video services my photographer or DJ offer?
This is a question that I am asked very regularly – the difference is major. We are a team of exclusive videographers and editors whose expertise is solely in video production. Since we have such a specific focus in the event industry, we are at the best at what we do. Our attention to detail is unsurpassed by anyone in the industry. We customize every production to fit our clients individual visions.
How do you stay unobtrusive at my event?
We work very hard to make sure that we blend in seamlessly during your event. The best way to achieve this is by using less equipment. We typically use only one or two cameras to capture the best footage without being in the way. We do not bring extra staff, lighting, or use additional cameras, as we find these thing tend to get in the way of the guests and are unnecessary to produce a high quality, beautiful video.
Can I include videos in my photo montage?
Absolutely! Each montage is completely customized for the client! Many of our favorite montages have video footage! There are times where video clips are better than just a still picture to capture that special memory. We have a variety of package options for montages. Contact us today to plan yours!
Can I just have a highlights video of my special day?
At Professional Video, we pride ourselves on creating individualized products for each client. We will work with you to create the perfect package for any budget. From straight shoots, to highlight videos, to fully edited events, we do it all! You can book an appointment at any time to come meet with us and plan a video that is perfect for you!
How early should I book a videographer?
During peak season (fall and spring), it is important to book a videographer 12-18 months in advance. We often have availability closer to the event with our associate videographers, so do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
Do you travel out of state?
Yes! We are happy to travel out of state to cover your event! We cover events all over the tri-state area, and have covered numerous parties at different summer camps. Contact us to discuss the location of your next event!
Do you work with any photographers, party planners or DJ’s that you can recommend?
Yes, we are happy to share contact information for photographers, party planners and DJ’s that we work with frequently. Please don’t hesitate to bring this up when we discuss your event and video.
