Frequently Asked Questions

Filming has been a passionate hobby of mine for around 3 years, I started filming family holidays and birthdays and then I received an opportunity to go on tour with the Knights of Nottingham (Jousting) which was an amazing experience. However, it was filming at my brothers wedding that made me realise the direction I wanted to take and develop into a new career which is where I formed JMC Production. My favourite part of doing what I do is handing over the final edit to the clients. Nothing compares to watching their reactions when they watch it for the first time. 

How long have you been a videographer and how did you get started?

My clients are treated individually and a different approach is required for each. My aim is to tell a story with the film in the couples preferred style. Some couples prefer a journalistic approach where as others prefered a natural flow with minimal interaction with the lens. Some may also prefer a more scripted fairytale style approach to capture their big day. As a videographer, I aim to be as discreet as possible and try to blend in with the guests. Where possible, I use my gimbal camera rig which allows me to stay on the move. I will only use a tripod set up when necessary.

What is your approach to the day and your style of shooting?

Bridal Preparation (3-4 mins - highlights to music)

Arrival of the guests and bride (3-4 mins - highlights to music)

Ceremony depending on the service

Photoshoot of Family & Friends (3-5 mins - highlights to music)

Speeches depending on length 

Cake Cutting (2 mins - highlights)

First Dance (3-5 mins)

Evening Entertainment (3-5mins)

On average I capture 4 hours of footage which I will edit down to 60 minutes. 

Which parts of the day do you shoot?

I aim to have the video with you in six weeks. It takes around 40-50 hours to go through the footage, select the crucial parts and edit the highlights to music. I am more than happy to use your selection of music for the video but would appreciate it if was given to me before the wedding so I could prepare the templates ready for the footage. It will be provided to you on a USB in various file formats.

How long after the wedding are we provided with the footage and on what format?

If you decide to go ahead and book a package, I ask for a £200 deposit to secure your date and then no further payment is required until I personally deliver the footage to you.

What's the booking process and how much is the deposit?

I prefer to meet with you a few weeks before the wedding to discuss the schedule for the day. You can inform me of your preferred style, requests and discuss any remaining concerns at any point. If possible, I also aim to attend the rehearsal.

Do we speak to you before the wedding about what we are looking for?
