Our Approach to Wedding Videography

Preparation

Before recording the first frame of footage, we know exactly what we will film, how we will film it, and where we need to be for every big moment.

Cinematography

Using the classic language of cinema helps ensure your wedding video will become a timeless classic, and not feel dated in a few years.

Vendors

We enjoy working with other vendors! Prior to the wedding, we reach out to the photographer, DJ, and wedding planner to coordinate our efforts.

Robert Ramage

Lead Videographer
My goal is to a create wedding video that will provide you with real value for a lifetime. To help remind you how you felt on your wedding day and why you fell in love! I put my heart and soul into telling that story. My team and I have a fairly laid back filming style. We're professional without being obtrusive. I strive to build a great relationship with my couples that allows them to relax and be confident knowing their big day is in good hands. I grew up Calgary and attended the U of C. Prior to starting Dream Day Films, I served as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy, specializing in navigation. In 2001 a friend asked me to film his wedding which led to more weddings, and eventually a full-time business. I fell in love with it! I have two formerly stray cats - Toga and Cato - who moved in and decided to help me with editing. My favourite moment on a wedding day is seeing the look on a groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time...

It really depends upon your wedding day schedule, and which events you wish us to film. We arrive 30-60 minutes early to set up, and depart a half hour after coverage ends. Full day wedding coverage would typically range between 10 and 12 hours.

Yes we do. We pay to copyright music from a number of websites. Most popular songs are either far too expensive or are unavailable to license.  If you wish, you can look through the music catalogues from the sites we use and let us know what you like.

Raw footage is the original video and audio we filmed and recorded on the wedding day. It is unedited, consisting of hundreds of separate video and audio files.

Our turnaround time is normally within 3 months. Videos from weddings later in the year might take a little longer. Excellence takes time!

We pride ourselves on having good working relationships with photographers. We understand that photo and video have to work well together. Positive collaboration is always mutually beneficial.
