Shoot-It-Yourself is an amazing idea that we are very excited to be able to deliver to you. The Shoot-It-Yourself concept is simple and the results can be outstanding. Simply expressed, your guests take the photographs and video recordings of your Special Day and then either post them to us or they upload them to a secure location on our server.
We then take all of the photographs and video recordings that your guests have taken, capture them onto our powerful video editing suite, produce them and deliver to you as retail quality print and packaged DVDs.
Although the Shoot-It-Yourself service sounds simple, in actuality, the Shoot-It-Yourself production can be quite complex. For example, it can be difficult to synchronise the different clips from different people and they will be different qualities, different colours and have varying tonal qualities. So, leave all that complex stuff to us, we revel in that, and let us deliver your special day in a way that you could remember for ever.
It is better if the same manufacturer and model of camera can be used for the video recordings. So, we are able to hire out HD quality cameras for your guests to use to take the Shoot-It-Yourself footage. We also have a short introductory course on how to shoot good quality wedding video. This is ideal for novices. Alternatively, we are equally happy to accept the recordings from your guests. Ask us for further details of the course.
As an option for your Special Day, Shoot-It-Yourself can be very cost-effective as well as provide a degree of surprise in what your guests record. For example, everyone knows the photographer and videographer at a wedding, but they are so much more relaxed when someone that they know is videoing the special day. This can result in footage and shots that the photographer and videographer, however experienced or able, might miss. Imagine the fun when you and your guests see the footage that they have taken of your Day. And, it means so much more, as people that you know and Love have taken the footage for you.
