It’s that time of year, folks, our pro-pics are in!

Before I show you all the pretties though, I’d like to first show you our wedding video. Remember how I mentioned that our videographers were doing a Same Day Edit?

And remember how I showed you this picture of Mr Big at the first shoot we did with our videographers:

Mr Big and the Camera!

Well, they took the footage from the day above, and the wedding day, and folks… they made a masterpiece. Redge and Marlon worked full slog to make the video, and showed it at about 9:30PM at the reception. They said we’d be getting the full documentary soon, and from the work they did on the day, it’s safe to say Mr Big and I are enormously excited!

So without further ado, here is our Same-Day Edit:

Last time I talked about our photographers. Now, I thought I’d talk to you guys about our videographers. I’ve talked a lot about our photographers and how they’re frakking awesome, but I haven’t mentioned our videographers!

You see, when Mr Big and I first started planning this whole wedding shindig, we knew we wanted videographers. We wanted to see moving pictures of our day, hear the vows being said, the whole shebang! The catch? We also wanted a Same-Day Edit (SDE).

For those of you who don’t know what a Same-Day Edit is, it’s basically video clips compiled together to be shown on the ‘same day’ it’s shot. Therefore, our videographers will record most of our day, and then spend the other part of it editing a small film clip together before showcasing it at our reception.

The reason we wanted so much to have the Same-Day Edit is because a lot of people won’t be at our ceremony. Most of my family will be coming up on the day, and have given me the head’s up that they’ll likely only make it for the reception. By showcasing an SDE, we can give the folks who couldn’t make it to the reception a little snippet of the day, including the ceremony.

However, searching for videographers who do SDEs in Australia is NIGH impossible. I emailed out at least 10 videographers, maybe more, and the response was usually a resounding no, although all of them were pretty polite about it. The wedding videography team that we did like were insanely priced, so we decided against it.

Glumly, a few weeks went by where we were deliberating not having an SDE and then I found Onsight Films. Onsight Films is a two-man team – Marlon and Redge – who hail from South-West Sydney (where I come from!). Our first meeting with them was over chocolate brownies and chocolate coffee. We talked packages, gaming, weddings, chocolate, and travel. The two of them were awesome, and  Mr Big and I booked them in the next day!

When we received our package we fine-tooth-combed it (like we always do) and realised that they had given us travel at no extra expense and we were also receiving raw footage. SCORE! Also included in our package is a pre-wedding interview, where Marlon and Redge will go through our “love story” as they say. It’s pretty exciting!

We met up with them in November to film our pre-wedding video, and here’s picture from that day:

As for the quality of their work, I’ll let the videos speak for themselves:

So what do you guys think? Anyone else a SDE-r?
