I’ve been doing same day video recaps of weddings for the past few years and I have to say that it’s one of my favorite things because of the reactions it received. When I did my first one 3 years ago I heard audible gasps at the wedding for it was new and innovative and not seen in many other weddings. Although it’s more common now, it still garnishes some surprises and it always brings the largest smiles to the bride and groom.
It’s the first time they get to see what just has happened. The ceremony that united them is usually a blur of a memory even hours after it occurred because of the nervous anticipation felt before it and the unquestionable anxiety and emotion of the event. So to look up and see again the smiles and emotion is always welcome.
We offer the option of using a screen and projector of one or two plasma screens set up for easy view to all your reception guests. We put together slide show presentations of photos and videos provided and play them throughout the night or at special times (ex. entrance, parents’ dances, etc.) We also provide a photographer that takes candids throughout the day and have those displayed. There’s also a mounted video camera that can capture the live action of the reception as it occurs.
Just this past weekend we offered this for Paul & Bel. This was the quick edit we showed during dinner. We were not the principle videographers for this wedding and we respect the position of the videographer and work around that to ensure that they get their quality shots while we get the kind of footage we need for the day. We work hard to not disrupt the job of our fellow wedding vendors.

I really do love doing these things. I plan on being more creative with the edits in the short term future. We can even extend the edits to cover the before the ceremony footage. We do offer this service independent of our other services. So if you just need plasma screens and photo slide show presentations, same day edits, etc. we provide that on its own.
