Why Videography is Essential

A fresh 2012 survey found that the number one regret of newlyweds is not hiring a pro videographer. We can help! Professional videography captures your vows, toasts, music and laughter in real time with real motion and real sound -- without intrusive flashes and shutter noise.

We use pro wireless mics to record your vows and the conviction that comes with them; generations down the road will hear in your voice how much this day meant to you. They'll both hear and see the toasts, the music, your first dance, and the laughter as you cut the cake.
About Us

My wife and I both grew up in Washington. We're both romantics. Both pro FT wedding videographers. When we film a wedding, we're not just a shooter with an assistant -- rather we're both shooting, and later we both edit. When you hire us, you actually get us -- not hired help. Most companies send staff members with varying degrees of experience.

We've also invested heavily in our equipment. Each of our cameras is $5,000, and we're so serious about your special day that we bring twice the battery power that we need and twice the card space. We dress conspicuously as well, and with multiple cameras, we set up behind the photographers, so if we get blocked, we simply cut to the other camera(s). Photographers love us because we help them light shots -- so they don't have to flash as often. With our soft lights, their cameras often don't need to shoot the red laser on the couple either.

Because we are both Full-Time, you don't have to wait several months for your video, but rather 2-6 weeks.

So we think you'll like us, just like countless couples that we've served.

Set Your Uncle Free!

Your uncle may have offered his snazzy camera services, but is he thinking about sound, and what will he do with the raw footage?
It's better for everyone that he puts the tripod away and enjoy your wedding from the safety of his chair.

Legacy's award-winning videography recreates what it feels and sounds like to stand at the alter with the love of your life. We dress professionally, with dark colors to be discreet.

If you have a photographer we suggest that they “art-direct” the wedding. If you don’t have a photographer we provide the art direction.

When we catch the groom and pastor we equip them with wireless microphones and test sound levels. This takes just a minute or two.

For the Ceremony we attach all of our cameras to tripods so that all ceremony shots are steady and all zooms/pans are smooth. We will have all three HD cameras on you.

You will love the quality of our shots. We use two HD videocameras for close-ups/pans/zooms and a static HD videocamera for the wide angle shot positioned discreetly at the beginning of the aisle. We bring backup batteries for everything along with extra tapes and an extra wireless mic unit. Of course we will stay for as long as requested, and the final DVD is Royalty-Free for you to copy and distribute.

Finally, we will incorporate any music that you would like us to include in the video. We listen closely to your ideas, as our goal is to represent your style.

How Essential is HD?

High-definition (HD) is a jaw-dropping new technology to us, but it won't be to our children and grand-children. They will live in a high-definition age and wonder how us old-timers could stomach watching standard (SD) television.

HD is shot at 1080 pixels, while SD uses 480 pixels. That is a huge difference in detail and color. HD is the highest level of picture quality, offering increased image resolution and detail.

To view HD in the highest quality you must have an HDTV (High Definition TV) and a DVD player that plays HD, such as Blu-Ray. If you don't have these, you will someday soon and will be glad you chose HD, while in the meantime you will enjoy your DVD at SD detail.

You'll notice my demos are widescreen -- this is a hallmark of HD. At home, if you have a traditional standard television set, you're watching a movie or show on a box, or square-shaped screen, therefore missing out on the extra action that takes place on the sides (because it has been clipped or "letterboxed" to fit the square shape).

If you have a HDTV (the newer rectangular shaped TV), often when you view shows or movies, they are letterboxed (clipped with black on the sides) because they have not been shot in High Definition Video yet.

One reason why movies at the theater are so much more captivating is because the screen occupies a greater field of view, especially peripherally, making you feel like you are actually there, experiencing the action.

The resolution is outstanding and breathtaking, like looking through a window. The average resolution for VHS is 240 pixels, DVD is 430 pixels, Standard Television is 480 pixels, with HDTV surpassing them all at 1080 pixels. It is the best.
