      YES! Please share! We have to have our wedding videotaped as we plan to play it at our party when we get back for everyone who wasn't able to make the wedding! I've been wondering about cost and quality!

                quick question: Does Michael work with an assistant? How does he shoot pictures and do the video at the same time?

                  Thanks Mo!! So would i still have to pay Michael, or should I go thorugh Chandlyn? If I don't use Michael's photography, but do elect to purchase the video, will the other guy just show up, or will Michael be there. I'm glad that you liked the DVD. I will probably get one too!

                    oh ok, because from Michael's email, he makes it sound like i have to pay before i even get to the resort.

They mic the groom so you can hear the vows (just remember the mic is there and picks up things you may have only meant for the groom to hear). It was professionally edited. I was happy with it. There were 2 things I didn't like: 1. they add music to the video in editing so I couldn't hear the steel drums we hired to play. 2. the graphics they add to the video are a bit cheesy. But overall I was glad I got it and my family that couldn't make it to Jamaica were glad I got it too.
                      Thanks for the info Mo, the video you got made, I know he tapes the actual ceromony, but whats in the video before and after the vows? Does he start the video as you walk down the asile? or does he start with other footage, ie: coming from your room? After the vows are taped, does he follow Michael around and take video of picture taking? Just not sure how the video gets to be 25 mins, if the vows dont take that long
                      I want to get a video made just unsure of what to expect and also I read somewhere you can add your own music in mp3 format, did you do this? Thank you so much Mo, you're a wealth of information :)
