Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some commonly asked questions about my wedding video & photo service.

For the toasts I have a special wireless mic that I place on the head table. Having a mic that is in closer proximity to whomever is speaking is generally enough to get a nice clean signal. However I can also run a feed from the DJ’s mixing board, this would be the signal from the mic that the person is holding. While it is possible to do this, it doesn’t always work, so I don’t usually count on it, but it is nice to have if it will work. For audio in general, I like to have a variety of sources to choose from, so all the¬†cameras has it’s own microphone in addition to any wireless systems I am running. Redundancy is a good way to ensure a good quality signal as some venues can have not so great acoustics.

For the vows I have a wireless lapel mic on the groom. This will pick up the vows from both the bride and the groom and is generally very clear. Depending on the venue (i.e. if it is outdoors) I will also use a separate wireless lapel mic for the officiate, I will also sometimes run a wireless mic to the platform for readings if possible. Which mics I run vary from place to place, but there is always a lapel mic on the groom. For audio in general, I like to have a variety of sources to choose from, so each of the 3 cameras has it’s own microphone in addition to any wireless systems I am running. Redundancy is a good way to ensure a good quality signal as some venues can have not so great acoustics.

I typically will just use whatever song the bride & groom danced to in their first dance, however I will sometimes use other music that was in the wedding.  If the bride & groom request a specific song I can certainly accommodate any requests.
