Pricing
I regard my company as kind of an “Every Man’s Video Production” shop.  Or to put it another way, if you’re Coca-Cola looking for a company to shoot a Super Bowl ad, you’ve come to the wrong place.

With that in mind, I strive to keep my fees well within reason.  Obviously each project is different, but I’d say my projects typically range from hundreds of dollars to a few thousand dollars.  Some of them I’ll do as a single fixed-cost, others will be based on an hourly rate.  If there are travel costs involved I’ll just bill those as-is, with no markups.

One thing I do want to emphasize regarding pricing is that I’ll never “nickel and dime” you on a project.  For instance, once when I was working a wedding 11:00 PM rolled around the photographer put down her camera and started packing up her gear.  She’d been hired for four hours of work, and since she started at 7:00 PM her job was done.  However, the reception was still going strong, yet the bride and groom weren’t going to have any pictures of anything after 11:00 PM.

There’s no way a situation like that will happen with me.  Particularly with a wedding, I take my job as the videographer very seriously–my goal is to capture this very special moment in your life, and I’m not going the compromise the video I can give you just because the reception goes longer than you thought it would.  I wouldn’t be able to look at myself in the mirror if a great moment happened in your celebration and I, as your videographer, had already left.

The moral of that story is if you hire me I’ll always go the extra mile to make sure I do everything in my power to give you what you’re looking for, and if it requires a bit of extra effort on my part that’s no problem.
