COVID19 has no doubt had an unprecedented affect on us all. Jobs have been lost, travel restrictions have been imposed, food and other necessities have come up short, and our daily routines have been completely upended.
For me, as a videographer, business has had to change. I've had many reschedule and some completely back out of their wedding date. As much as I want to shoot every wedding that I've had booked, I can't imagine how some of you must feel who can't hold the ceremony of your dreams due to venue closings and crowd restrictions.
While there may seem to be a lot of negatives in these trying times, I want to somehow spark a glimmer of hope and resolution. We've all had to get a little crafty in some way or another. I guess that's what happens when you're quarantined!
I'd like to present two new opportunities that you can take advantage of during this COVID19 era.
Venue closures have ultimately been the biggest hangup for many of us. If venues haven't closed, they are more than likely following state and CDC guidelines limiting room capacity to 10 or less.
If you're one of those who doesn't wish to reschedule for a later date, this means you either hold an elopement style wedding or you cancel your reservation.. resulting in the loss of that expensive deposit.
Live streaming is your best bet. In true cinema style of my own, I want to offer something worth your while. Let's face it, while a simple Facebook live stream from your phone could do, you'd be left with terrible audio and probably a terrible view as well.
I have invested thousands into audio and video equipment over the past few years. All of it to offer the best possible quality you should expect to receive.
My live streaming services would include:
Two professional camera angles with that beautiful background blur.
High quality audio allowing you to hear the bride, groom, and officiant in crystal clear perfection.
