Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!
Below are many of the questions we have been asked over the years. If your answer is not here then drop us a line and we will promptly get back to you with information to help you with your big day! Red Empire prides itself on great service and excellent quality. We want you to be comfortable knowing that your videographer can take care of themselves, so you can sit back and enjoy the wedding unfold.
Yes, we accept cash, EFT and all major credit cards for your convenience
Whilst filming a Wedding we always try to adopt a ‘fly on the wall’ approach and sometimes you won’t even know we are there! We also work well with photographers and allow them to direct their favourite shots during the photoshoot.
After your wedding is filmed and your song choices have been recieved it takes between 8 and 10 weeks to get the first look at your wedding draft. We also shut down over Christmas for 2 weeks which may cause additional delays
Yes, minor changes will be accepted. We consider minor changes to be less than 2 hours of editing time. Any obvious editing mistakes or omissions will also be fixed where possible.
Yes! Customised wedding video packages are our specialty. We can adjust coverage times to suit your day and you can add a second Camera Operator at any time.
There are no travel costs inside of the Perth metro area (within 50kms of Perth). Travel outside of Perth is calculated at $1 per Km and is calculated on a two way trip.
We use the most up to date Video Cameras, which are regularly serviced for your piece of mind. All our cameras shoot in high definition and can also shoot in slow motion. We use Sony lapel radio microphones to achieve excellent sound on your video. On most weddings we set up microphones on the Priest or Celebrant and the groom. If there is a lectern we also set up additional sound recorders to capture cleaner audio where possible.
Our tripods are of the highest quality to get super smooth shots. On larger wedding shoots (2 cameras +) we also have a tracking system that can be used where time permits.
Get all your rooms nice and clean for the big day. This makes life much easier for the cameraman and photographer and allows us to get many more angles and set shots. Have some nice glasses and a nice bottle of champagne or whisky to toast to.
For the lads, a few antics, games, sports and a couple of drinks always looks the part. Have your clothes neatly laid out and make sure you have mastered the Double Windsor Tie.
Set-up an area to show off your Jewellery, we recommend a room that can be lit up well or has good natural light.
Have some nice family photos set-up in a clean room. It is a great way to start the preparations off.
Go and meet your celebrant or priest. Ask to hear their speakers or P.A in action. There is nothing worse than discovering that the equipment is unsatisfactory on the day. Find out who will be talking and where they will be talking. For video, we set-up audio recorders where we expect people to talk. However, in some cases people will make up their own mind on where to speak. A Microphone and lectern is a great idea if you want great audio during your service.
Red empire uses the most up to date backup systems and guarantee your jobs safety up to a year after filming. To date, we have kept all our weddings (over 270!) ever shot and can restore them for a setup and access fee. However, we strongly recommend getting plenty of copies and a hard drive at completion to ensure your wedding can be relived in 50 years or more.
