The biggest difference between photography and videography is audio. The power of good audio should not be underestimated for your wedding film. Whether that be the music selection, your vows, or the toasts given at your reception, having beautifully crystal clear audio is very important for your wedding video.
One of our most Frequently Asked Questions is how we will record audio at your wedding. Here’s the answer:
We record our audio in 2 ways:
- We place lavelier microphones with external recorders on both the groom and the officiant for the ceremony. These microphones are separate from the DJ’s microphones, and the only purpose of these microphones is to record the ceremony. Our system does not interfere with the DJ’s microphone system in any way, because we use wired instead of wireless microphone systems,
- We record straight from the DJ’s soundboard. We work closely with the DJ to plug into their system to record audio straight from either the soundboard or from their speakers. This allows us to record your ceremony music as well as any microphones that the DJ may be using to amplify the officiant’s voice, anyone who may be doing a reading during your ceremony, and your vows. This is also how we record the events of your reception – Grand Entrance, Toasts, and the music from your Formal Dances.
Our goal is to tell the story of your wedding day.
5, 10, 20, or 50 years from now, we want our couples to be able to listen to the vows they said on their wedding day. We want our couples to be able to hear all the amazing things their loved ones said on that day. And above all, we want nothing but the highest quality audio for the wedding films we deliver to our couples.
