'WHY YOU DON'T WANT THE RAW FOOTAGE FROM YOUR WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER'
This is a very common question amongst brides and grooms these days.
You could request raw footage of your wedding for a multitude of reasons, but few couples understand exactly what raw footage actually is.
Most of the time it never even ends up being watched. Storage Space The first caveat has to do with the storage space that the raw footage takes up.
For us, an average wedding clocks in somewhere between 125 - 350 GB. and now as we sometimes shoot in 4K these files can be even larger
For most home computers and laptops, this is too large to save on your computer among all your other applications, music, and photos, so it becomes necessary to purchase an external hard drive to store the files.
Thousands of Files Raw footage is not easy to watch. It’s not something that can be burned to a DVD and watched on your television. Nowadays all videographers shoot on digital media, which means every time we start and stop recording, a new video file is created.
Now imagine how many times we do this throughout the entire 10-12 hour wedding day, not to mention that most of us are using 2-3 cameras for each wedding and shoot in an unprocessd RAW format such as SLog
Colour corrected footage
What you end up with is hundreds of 10-60 second clips which we must then sort, color correct imperfections, and then ultimately piece together to create a story.
Do you have the time to sift through and double-click, watch for a few seconds, close, double-click, watch, close, hundreds of times?

Our Documentary Edits run anywhere from 1-2 hours in length, and are an easy way to watch all of the raw footage from the day without the hassle of scrub through video clips all night.
