makes Walkabout different or special?
Have you ever actually watched
someones wedding video? Were you just a little
bored? Well, dont be discouraged by what youve
seen or what you think wedding videos typically look
like. Our videos are created like a documentary film:
every one is unique and creative, capturing the essence
of your personality and your story. Incorporating
ambient sound as well as your favorite music, well
compose a fun, moving depiction of your day that youll
want to watch again and again. Were sensitive
to your need for space, however. We try
to stay on the periphery whenever possible, making
sure the focus is on you & your group, not the
all the costs included in your package
Even though we dont charge
mileage costs in the Boulder / Denver metro area,
there may be a mileage charge if youre out of
this area. See our rate page, or call us if you fall
into this category. Also, if youre getting married
60 miles or more from Denver / Boulder, and were
working late at night (after 9pm April-October and
after 7pm November-March), for safety reasons we ask
that you book us a hotel for the night.
long will it take me to get my video?
Around 4 weeks.
been to weddings where the videographers really get
into peoples faces and are intrusive. What do
you do about this?
At Walkabout, were very sensitive
to the fact that people dont want to be distracted
or annoyed by Video cameras. We use 3 chip digital
cameras that allow us to operate under extremely low
light conditions where we dont need to turn
on lights, and we can zoom in from a great distance.
We use wireless microphones so we get broadcast quality
sound without being too close. Finally, we get a feel
for whats happening so we can be at the right
place at the right time- and not stepping on peoples
toes! Whether you want us to interview guests or not
is also a decision that rests entirely with you.
Absolutely; weve done weddings
all over the US and abroad. Weve yet to see
a video company that produces such a great product
as we do, and we are in demand in many places where
it is difficult to find our quality of work at such
do you wear?
We wear suits and other semi-formal appropriate
many cameras and people do you bring?
We bring two professional camera
operators to every edited wedding, and they bring
2-3 cameras. This allows us to get a variety of perspectives,
have an active camera ready when emergencies arise,
and insure that we always have a good angle on the
type of equipment do you use?
All of our weddings are video taped
with Cannon XL1 cameras or comparable digital cameras.
These are 3-chip digital cameras that are often used
even for the production of television programs. In
addition, professional audio equipment including a
variety of wireless mics and professional lighting
equipment that allows us to create soft, warm, non
obtrusive lighting when necessary. Quality tripods,
steady-cams, filters, wide angle lenses etc., also
play important roles.
What are the advantages
of hiring the same company to do video and photos?
It is a good idea to hire both
from the came company because they will work well
together. The last thing you want on your big day
is conflict between your photographer and videographer.
Also, when the same company does both photos and video,
still images can easily be used from the photography
to be included in the video.
is needed to retain your services?
First, the most important issue
is whether we are available for your date. We only
film a limited number of weddings each year and dates
book up fast. If were available, we require
a deposit of $500 to secure the date. The balance
is due up to a week before the wedding. The deposit
you hold the date for me?
Sorry, were unable to hold
a date without a deposit. Our services are provided
on a first come, first served basis, and we book up
fast. I suggest contacting us early in your planning
stage; lately, clients have been booking well over
a year in advance. Even if youre unsure of which
package youd like or what time to have us there,
you can still put your deposit down and well
hold the date for you.
