I only do documentary style weddings and like someone before have found most of the weddings are 1:45 to 1:50. They include too much stuff for anybody but the most interested parties (bride and her mother and maybe sister(s) ). My DVDs have menus and scene selection as well as many chapter points. Most customers are interested in the little details and mild embarassments that one might think should be edited but I have found they are part of the unique character of the event to the interested parties.
My biggest value contribution to the video is to deliver a level of technical skill of camera use and quality and sound track that UncleRoy could not deliver. The editing is chronological and I make little attempt to manage the time of the final video. On a rare occasion I will “fix” something that did not go as well as it should have or do stills to music bits.
