    So Joe went and picked up our wedding video last night, and I was really let down :o( I'm glad we have something to look back on, but I guess I am let down b/c it wasn't what I expected maybe, ? I saw videos that were so great, my sisters video for example, and I remember thinking "WOW, this is great!" It was very well put together. I should have used her guy but I used a diff company that a friend suggested, it was $500 cheaper, so it's my own fault. Ones I've seen in the past were almost like mini movies, with the effects and all, but mine, I mine as well just paid a friend to video tape it.

    Well, the reason I am not happy is b/c for one, I felt like it was cheaply done, or something. It was shaky, some parts of the video skipped, some parts more than 5 times, the picture got muffled looking, almost like a checkered look, and no, it wasn't the "effects" or anything , it was a screw up. Joe kept trying to make excuses for it and that was one, that it was done purposely. I also felt like all he did was set the video up in one spot on the dance floor and that's all he taped- even if it was empty. There was a total of 5 seconds he taped by the bar, but didn't get much.

    I am writing an email to the owner, who is the guy I've been mailing etc. I don't want to be mean or get anyone in trouble, but I have to let him know how I feel. The video probably can't even be fixed :o( Idiots.

      I'm so sorry that your video turned out bad. Definetly email the owner and let them know. There must be SOMETHING they can do to make you rectify this. This is not very good for business. You cannot give a poduct like this. Hope you get good results!

        Awww.... that really stinks. Hopefully, you can get some kind of reimbursement even though it won't get the video back. Good luck!

          Damn, Jac, that sucks. The video that Beaches made for us is laughable it's so bad, so I feel your pain. I would definitely talk to someone about it. They obviously can't fix it, but they can address it for future brides.

              Aw man sorry to hear about that, I would be totally bummed too. Sometimes it's hard to know how good someone is going to be or not. Price can be an indicator but there are also great ppl out there that are inexpensive. I would for sure write a letter though and let them know exactly how you feel about their services.

              That's terrible!!! I'm so sorry that you're let down. Hopefully something can be done, maybe there's footage that they didn't put on there.

              Also did any family members or friends take videos? Maybe you can take all the footage to someone and have them put it together?

                When you talk to the owner try to get them to hand over the raw footage from your wedding. Maybe you could take that footage to a different videographer/editor to try to make something better for you. I'm hoping that perhaps there's a lot more good video that they have but maybe the person who edited it just was a slacker. Even if there isn't a lot of good video I'm guessing that a better editor might be able to make it look nicer for you. Good luck. I'm so sorry that happened to you.
