I am new to videography and plan on shooting weddings. I have been editing for several years for myself, but not professionally. I have a wedding coming up at the end of April and I am trying to do as much research as possible.
What does your final product consist of? I have read posts that say NEVER provide raw footage? What do you consider edited footage? If you provide an hour of edited footage, what does that mean exactly? When I think of edited footage, I think of clips set to music.
The samples that are on everyone’s website are usually about 5 minutes long. Is that something you provide in addition to the 1 hour long edited product, or is that a shortened version?
I saw a post on here somewhere from compusolver suggesting ordering his sample DVD. I plan on doing just that. Are there any other posters here that would be willing to share their sample?
Also, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Thank you for your quick response. I have ordered your DVD and am anxiously awaiting it’s arrival!
Yes, I am doing it for "free" with one exception. They are allowing me to use any and all footage or edited product as my sample. This particular couple do not have the money to hire a videographer. The photographer they hired is a relative of mine and they were excited that I was willing to do it for "free" They are fully aware that I am "new" They even brought up the fact that they have some friends that used a "new" videographer that had problems with his equipment. They asked me if I was willing to incorporate still photos from the photographer in case I wasn’t able to get good footage.
I am doing as much research as I can because I realize that this is their Wedding. I am taking this very serious. I want their finished product something they will be proud of and something they will want to show everyone! I need referrals after all!
