Tell us a little about your business and the services you offer:
We offer many different package for local and destination brides. We shoot all weddings and events in HD (High Definition). We do only one wedding per day and that way we don't have to use contractors to shoot wedding like some in town. We offer Blu-Ray HD packages for a little more the our SD packages. We also do destination weddings at the beaches and Disney. We also do other events--corporate parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs etc. We shot video for the NACE (National Association of Catering Executives) Convention party at Universal studios a couple of years ago, and the ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants) here in 2007

How did you get started?
I started out with video for myself and family as I wanted to capture surfing, diving and the kids growing up and save those memories . Then started doing weddings when that got popular in the late eighties.

What professional organizations or networking are you a member of?
Wedding Professionals of Central Florida
Association of Bridal Consultants
Professional Videographers of Central Florida
Wedding and Events Videographers Association

Furthest place and/or interesting place you have travelled to while working on a wedding assignment?
Not the furthest but unusual was a wedding I did inside The Penguin Encounter at Sea World here in Orlando. It was snowing, 33 degrees with penguins squawking.

What are a few suggestions you would make to couples as they are selecting a professional in your service are for their special day?
They shouldn't shop for the lowest price, make sure you watch videos and meet your videographer to make sure they are a fit for you and your wedding day. Tell them what type of video your looking for, short cinematic version or longer documentary type. Give them your music selections before the wedding, that way your videographer can get an idea on how to shoot the pre-wedding activities to go with the music you have chosen. If you go to the videographer first, they will have live shots of reception sites, DJ's, flowers, cakes, officiants, almost everything you will be looking for and can see them in action with sound.

What are the trends and innovations in your service area?
Trends from my brides seem to be more of them wanting the day captured in HD even though it costs a little more. Even the parents now have HD TV's or will be getting them. They also get standard definition dvd for others. Some people are trying to save money but a lot are still going for what they really want for this special day.

What are your three favorite blogs besides the Joie de Vie blog?
I really like my photographer friend Domenico Castaldo blog and Still Motion, a photo/video company, in Canada that does amazing work. I like to see what they are doing. I also go to Cinematic Bride's blog to see what his latest videos look like. He works out of Louisiana.

If you weren't a working in this industry, what field would you be working/involved in instead?
I would like to make films or documentaries.

What show do you Tivo/DVR?
I make sure I get 24.
