“We loved all the photos you took and our friends and family have commented on how great you were. The video recording was excellent. We would highly recommend you for any wedding.”
Wedding Highlights Video
In addition to your wedding photos, you can also choose to bring the story of your wedding day to life with a short, a full HD quality (1080p) 'highlights' video of the day. A highlights video from a full wedding day will typically be around 5 minutes in duration.
Wedding highlights video prices start at just £199 and are available as a digital download with a no copyright backing track or on a USB drive with a licensed commercial backing track of your choice. With the USB option, you can also choose to add an unedited recording of your full ceremony to your package.
Both USB versions come loaded with all your still images and a video slideshow of your 50 favourite images in addition to the highlights video.
Video highlights from a Lake District wedding
This highlights video was created by taking video clips alongside the photos with additional footage from the ceremony taken using a static camera. While this example has a no copyright backing track in order to stream it on this website, the original USB version was set to a licenced backing track of the couple's choice.
Highlights Video Capture
Your wedding highlights video is captured through a technique called hybrid photography. Hybrid wedding photography is when your wedding photographer captures both photos and video on your wedding day, so you get a short highlights video as well as your wedding photos. While hybrid shooting by your photographer should not be seen as a replacement for hiring a dedicated, professional videographer for your wedding, it does offer an affordable addition to your package if you'd like a short highlights video in addition to the still images from your wedding day.
When working as a hybrid wedding photographer, my main focus is on capturing the story of your day in still images, while also capturing short video clips of key moments in a way that doesn't compromise your photos. These short video clips are then combined to create a 'highlights video' as in the example above. You can see other example wedding highlights videos on the Videos page of this website.
