Why Choose us

Is Videography worth the money

worried it may not be worth the money. This is understandable, because weddings are expensive, and tough choices are going to have to be made when putting together your budget. But when you consider the ability of video to fully commemorate an event, from perspectives that you never would have enjoyed otherwise, you can see that the money you invest in video will be giving you returns for years afterwards.The simple truth is that photos aren’t enough when it comes to remembering your big day. Photos aren’t able to capture your vows or the speeches afterwards. Photos don’t have audio afterall. They can’t capture live music performances or poetry readings. And pictures of the dance floor certainly can’t compare to video. Professional video allows you to share your wedding with people who couldn’t attend, or even your children years later. They also offer a great way to remember your older loved ones after they pass.The bottom line is, nothing competes with video in terms of creating memories and memorializing the most important moments of our lives.

My background in lighting and sound translates seamlessly to produce wedding films that are not only visually stunning but are also engineered to reproduce the highest quality audio so that no important moment is lost. I love the energy and the emotions that weddings bring out. Perfectly capturing those moments on film fuels my passion for the work I do. It is this drive for perfection that allows me to bring your most precious moments to life in a way that you will treasure forever.

Pre-production is the first phase of the video production process, and it involves planning and preparation before filming begins. Here are some of the key steps that go into videography pre-production:

Step #3

Do you offer Full Ceremony Videos

Weddings are a time of joy and wonder. It's easy to become absorbed in the moment, making it tough for couples to take advantage of the occasion together and appreciate all of the hard work that went into bringing their marriage vision to life! This bundle will allow us to capture every minute of your wedding from start to end. Full wedding ceremony video coverage lets us capture every moment of your big day.

We are more than happy to travel as far as needed to capture your perfect wedding day! There is an additional cost for us to travel. We want to make sure that your wedding film is everything you dreamed it would be, and we're willing to go the extra mile to make that happen. If you have travel needs for shooting your wedding, please contact us for a free consultation so that we can discuss travel expenses and how they may affect your final wedding video cost.

How do you capture audio during the wedding?

We use a combination of wireless lapel mics and an omnidirectional microphone. Omnidirectional microphones pick up sound from any direction and don't require a boom pole. They are typically placed on stands near the bride and groom. Lapel mics are worn by the wedding party and picked up good quality audio. We have a set of traditional microphones as well, in case the wireless audio has problems. We'll never let your wedding day be marred by bad sound.

Elopements and Micro-Wedding Films

Recently, couples have been opting for smaller intimate weddings. That's why we provide elopements and micro-weddings films for couples who want a more cinematic and intimate experience for their wedding day.

Do you Offer Raw Footage

Yes, however, Videographers regularly charge for the raw footage as they want to discourage the use of this footage in other mediums. It's a licensing issue as well as a brand issue. If someone takes the raw footage and edits it themselves, they can transfer to any medium they want, and if done poorly, this can reflect badly on the videography company that shot the footage. Remember, when purchasing raw footage, you are essentially purchasing the rights to someone else's creative work, so you have to compensate the artist for that transfer of rights.

Wedding films or Wedding Videos?

How is a wedding film different from a wedding video? A wedding film is a short film that tells the story of your wedding day. It is a more cinematic approach to wedding videography and will typically be around 10-15 minutes long. A wedding video, on the other hand, is a more traditional style of video that captures all of the moments from your wedding day. Both styles are equally beautiful and will capture the memories of your wedding day perfectly.

What is a Wedding Highlight Film?

The highlight film is designed to show off the best parts of your wedding day. From the first dance to the cake cutting, we'll capture the highlights of your wedding day in a fun, fast-paced format. Our goal is to create a compilation of memories that you can enjoy over and over again.

DO you offer Engagement Films

Will you be my witness? Will your love sustain me through this day, and help make it perfect forever? We are on the brink of something incredible. This is not just an engagement film; it's a love story. We at DJ Cutt Entertainment specialize in filming beautiful and timeless engagement films for couples in the Portland area. Our team has a lot of experience filming weddings and knows how to capture the emotion of this special time in a couple's life. We take great care in capturing everything from the proposal to the planning stages of the wedding. Our films are tailored specifically for each couple, and we want to make sure your film is unique to you.

How long does it take to edit a wedding film

Our editing process typically takes about 4-6 weeks per wedding film. We want to make sure that we take the time to get it right, and that you are absolutely thrilled with the final product. Our editing process includes adjustments like color grading, adding music, titles, transitions, etc. The importance of your wedding day doesn't just fade away after it happens. We want you to have a beautiful film that will remind both yourself and those who were there, how much love was felt during this special time in both partner's lives

Do you offer Full Feature Film

This option is for couples that want a separate wedding film that is shot in cinematic quality in the form of a documentary or Hollywood-style film. We dive deeper into the wedding planning process and provide behind-the-scenes footage of the couple, interviews with friends and family, and combine it into a more narrative-type film. This is the best way to tell your love story the way you want it to be told. We'll capture all of the intimate moments you'll want to cherish for the rest of your life.
