Our Video Company
        Because we did not like the quality that we received working with Maui's wedding videography companies, 1st Choice Maui Weddings developed our own video company, which is #1 Maui Wedding Videos. In this way we could stay in total control of the quality of videos our couples receive.
        We have been shooting film and videos for many years. We have written and produced professional films in both 16mm and Super8 film, as well as many video productions. We approach video more as a labor of love than as a way of adding to our business. 1st Choice Maui Weddings is a member of WEVA (Wedding & Event Videographers Association) and regularly attend their conventions and seminars to improve our video production values.
        We have invested in digital video equipment costing many thousands of dollars. Our camcorders have been carefully selected for their ability to hold the incredible quality that digital is known for as well as their lightness and maneuverability. Quality is extremely important element to the videos that we produce for our wedding couples.
        Our camcorders have three CCD chips and resolution which is more than twice that of VHS camcorders. We also own the lastest video editing equipment which we choose because we wanted the ability to edit quickly and professionally in a timely manner. We're always adding to our equipment and constantly at work finding new ways of improving the quality of our video productions.
Our Videos
        We do five basic video productions for our wedding couples. (If you have more specialized needs, please let us know what they are):
        "A" Video. This video is shot with only a little editing on our editor. (We add music where needed and touch it up just a bit.) The "A" Video uses limited dissolves and fades but you'll find the quality of this video is about the same as the more expensive productions of many of our competitors. The big advantage of the "A" video is the low price.
        "B" Video. This video is fully edited with many long dissolves, slow motion and professional titles. Editing is done to arrange scenes in the best possible order. Scenes are trimmed when necessary to eliminate awkward action or sound. The slow motion gives the quality of your finished video a romantic, dreamlike feel.
        We edit your wedding footage to your favorite song (if you provide us with a CD) or we can choose a romantic song for your video from our library. Our couples tell us that this song is the highlight of their video. Your family (and especially your relatives who do not come to your wedding) will enjoy viewing it for years to come.
        This video is for shorter wedding services only, with the finished video running between 15 and 20 minutes. If you will be having an elaborate wedding (and/or a wedding in a church), the length of your service necessitates your selection of the "C" video below.
        "C" Video. This video production is far more than just a wedding captured on video. It is a customized "love story" set to two of your favorite music selections.
        Before you arrive on Maui we will ask you to think about the two songs to which you would like your wedding video edited. We will also include up to eight photographs if they are large (preferrably at least 5x7") to be shot and edited into your love story.
        "D" Video. This wedding production is for couples who want two songs (as in the "C" video above) and they want extra footage taken both of the wedding ceremony (with a second videographer) as well as other special features such as on-camera comments.
        With the "D" Video you will have two videographers for the wedding ceremony and extra time by your main videographer (up to two and one/half hours). We also allow up to 12 of your still photographs to be included and concentrate on putting into your video all those extra special editing techniques which make our videos so well received. Running time of your video is approximately 25 to 35 minutes.
        The "D" video receives the kind of TLC that makes you look good, ensuring that you and your new spouse will have something to show your friends and family that is of exceptional quality. It will provide inspiration for your relationship for years to come.
        "E" Video. This video involves two videographers who stay throughout the entire wedding and reception (shooting from two different angles and points-of-view). They both shoot live interviews of relatives and guests (and/or the couple) as well as shooting all of the romantic footage of the couple so that it can be edited to three of their wedding songs.
        The "E" video involves much more of the videographers' time, as both of them stay through the wedding and cover your reception as well. With these two different points-of-view, it is so much easier for us to capture so much of the fun and romance that take place at your wedding. With the "E" video, each videographer can record images of both the bride and groom getting ready.
        The editing of your video is done with extreme attention to detail. We have so much footage to choose from that we will take only the best to put in the finished product. You and your entire family will cherish this video for the rest of your lives.

Extra Tapes & Masters
        Extra VHS tapes are available for $25 per tape.
        We shoot your wedding in digital video. It has the distinct advantage (over regular videotape) in that the information on the tape is composed of numbers (only "ones" and "zeros"). Therefore, it never loses it's ability to give clean clear copies of itself no matter how many generations are made from the master.
        We make the master tape available to you. The cost of the Master Mini DV tape that we shoot is $100 (except for the E. video which is $200 for the two master tapes).
        These tapes will eventually disintegrate (as all tapes do), but if the data is copied every few years to a new tape it will remain in its original condition indefinitely. You can also use the master tape to have a DVD made at some time in the future if you do not allow us to do it. Your master tape should become a resource that will last for years to come.
        Because of this fact, the value of the master videotape becomes priceless for most families. Your great, great grand children will still be able to view your wedding video, making it into a family heirloom.
        Because these Mini DV videotapes are re-useable, we copy over most masters three months after the wedding. For this reason, we highly recommend that you buy the master while it is still available.
Obtaining the DVD Format
        We all know that the VHS format will soon be gone, so we highly recommend that you order your wedding tape in the DVD format. Because we shoot in digital, the quality of our master is perfect for creating a DVD of your wedding. This format is highly resistant to being damaged (unlike VHS) and has twice the quality of the older VHS standard. Just a few years from now you will be so glad that you had your wedding recorded on a DVD.
