My experience in video production began at the tender age of 18, back in 1990. A stint at the Art Institute of Atlanta where I was pursuing a degree in audio engineering also included some video production classes. It didn't take long before I had developed full blown video fever.
Upon returning home to the Mississippi coast, I landed a position at WLOX TV13 in Biloxi. It was here where I was blessed to train with an award winning staff of news videographers, reporters, anchors and show producers; learning every aspect of the game.
I was in the field shooting and editing my own stories daily with reporters, working under deadlines, honing my creativity and technique for 3 years straight. It was the best kind of bootcamp-style training a videographer could ask for and it gave me a rock solid foundation that would serve me for the rest of my career.
It wasn't until years later as a freelance videographer in New Orleans, LA that I was offered the opportunity to shoot a wedding. I discovered a fondness for covering this kind of event and realized how personally gratifying it was to capture this pivotal moment for a family. I was completely drawn to it; so much so that from 2008 on, I decided to focus solely on weddings.
I find that producing a wedding video draws on all of the things I do best: the live multi-camera aspect of the ceremony and getting the technical execution right, capturing all of the important audio and sound elements, the run-and-gun style of shooting that is required to cover the rest of the event while remaining unobtrusive, having a sensitivity for following the action in a way that is both journalistic and creative... and finally, sharing my love and instinct for blending the right music together with the visuals to create a finished product that crystallizes those memories for life.
If I can create a piece that weaves all the elements of your day together to tell the story, reflects the joy of the day... and lastly, jerks on the heartstrings; I've done my job.
I have created some standard package suggestions which I can advise you on. They start at $1499, including two manned camera coverage of your ceremony and single coverage of the reception (approx. 6 hrs.) However, I'm happy to customize a package that fits your exact needs.
Let me guide you so that we can bring your vision to life. After all, this footage will be the start of your family legacy! I look forward to speaking with you.
Warm regards, Daniel Ramsay
