What Sets a Focal Point Wedding Video Apart From the Rest?

THE DIFFERENCE EXPLAINED

We’d Rather Do One Thing Well. It might seem simplistic, but we just genuinely love weddings and it shows in our work. They are the one and only thing we film, exclusively. While we don’t try to be all things to all people, we do strive to be exceptional at one thing: creating the most stirring, authentic, and artistic wedding videos possible. It’s the biggest day of your life and it will only come once, so trust your wedding memories to the highly specialized experience of Focal Point Digital Media.

A Low Key, Unobtrusive Presence. To the extent possible, we prefer to keep out of the way and to not stage shots but instead to capture a more organic record of your most important day. We try very hard to let your wedding day unfold as you intended and to keep the attention focused on you, not us.

Full-Time Studio. Full-Time Experience. We are not a part-time or home-based side business, but a full-time professional studio with over 400 weddings filmed at leading venues throughout the region. We have no other job commitments, no distractions, and no other priorities beyond creating outstanding wedding videos. Our comfortable studio alongside the Willamette River exists to serve our clients, and you are welcome and encouraged to visit.

Award-Winning Productions. Proud to be voted “Best All-Around Wedding Vendor” in 2010 as well as “Best Wedding Videographer” six consecutive times and counting (2009-2014) by the readers of Oregon Bride magazine, we were also previously honored as the Northwest's only 2007-2008 WEVA Creative Excellence Award winning studio, our industry's most competitive international peer recognition. As a local and regional leader within our niche, you can be assured that we actively strive to remain on the cutting edge of creativity and artistry in our wedding video productions. For additional information about our WEVA Creative Excellence Award click here.

Happy Past Customers. The greatest part of our job is experiencing the response of our clients upon receiving their completed wedding DVDs. Seeing a couple laugh and cry together while watching their video for the first time, or hearing about a dad’s reaction to seeing his Father-Daughter dance onscreen makes the many late hours of editing extremely worthwhile. Scores of unsolicited comments from past clients are available on our website, by visiting WeddingWire.com, or we will gladly provide specific references upon request. We are a certified Wedding Wire Gold rated videographer, one of only two in Oregon.

Our Signature Cinematic Short-Form Edit & Full-Length Edit, Both Included for No Extra Cost. Your completed wedding video features both our highly polished, deeply moving short-form edit of your wedding day as well a full-length "exactly as it occurred" documentary version of your wedding ceremony and the major events of the reception. Whether you wish to be swept by the emotional imagery of the cinematic edit, or sit back and relive every single word that was spoken, it's truly the best of both worlds!

Professional Equipment. We shoot using both DSLRs and high-end Canon professional camcorders, resulting in lusciously drenched colors, exquisite detail, powerful close-ups and excellent low-light sensitivity. Audio is provided by up to five professional UHF wireless microphones--almost unnoticeable and yet sensitive enough to pick up a whisper, they result in crystal clear, lifelike sound.

Multi-Camera Coverage, Standard. No risk of missing a shot that won't come again like with a single camera! All of our standard wedding packages include the redundancy and expanded perspective of at least two live-operated professional high definition cameras, as well as an unmanned third camera for the wedding ceremony. Blu-Ray delivery available.

All-Digital Production & Editing. HD editing is done in our 100% digital Final Cut Pro X non-linear editing suite, including editing, color correction, multi-track sound and music, motion graphics, titling and visual effects seamlessly orchestrated to fit your particular project. And since it’s completely digital there is no loss of quality compared with the original footage.

Highest Quality DVD Media Available, Bar None. The bride and groom's final video is transferred onto exclusive hardcoated archival DVD media that far outlasts standard DVDs. This media is literally 100x more scratch resistant and 3x more UV resistant than standard professional-grade DVDs. Rest assured, your memories will be safe for generations.

Complimentary DVDs for Parents. Besides yourself and your fiancé, no one is likely to be more interested or more involved in your wedding than your parents. Each set of parents receives their own custom-packaged copy of your finished wedding DVD to cherish, free of charge. Depending upon your package additional copies may be included as well.

Active Members of WEVA International. We are award-winning members the Wedding & Event Videographers Association International (WEVA), the largest and most recognized organization of professional wedding videographers worldwide. We adhere fully to their high ethical and professional standards and actively participate in their continuing education and national conferences yearly, keeping us on the cutting edge in our industry both regionally and internationally.

Excellent Relationships with Wedding Venues & Vendors. We are actively involved with multiple wedding industry networking groups and are proud to work alongside and be referred clients by many of the Northwest’s top-rated wedding photographers, wedding planners, caterers, florists, DJs, wedding officiants and other vendors. Additionally we are on exclusive Preferred Vendor lists at many premier Oregon wedding venues some of which include the Oregon Golf Club, The Allison Inn & Spa, Zenith Vineyard, Abernethy Center, Youngberg Hill Inn & Vineyards, Skamania Lodge, Langdon Farms Golf Club, Willamette Valley Vineyards, BeckenRidge Vineyard, Persimmon Country Club, the Oregon Garden and others. We are pleased to count many of these same colleagues as personal friends, and we work diligently to maintain excellent relations with them at all times.
