Daytona Beach Orlando Wedding Videography – USB Drives

Wedding Videography USB Drive

A new feature that I will be adding to my wedding package is this super cool looking credit card style USB flash drive.  It will also feature a handy little case that the drive will actually slide in to.  The great thing about this addition is that the new bride can carry it in her purse, her pocket, etc. and can simply take it out and plug it in whenever she needs.  I’m excited to be offering this, and all new brides that I work with will be receiving one of these.

The one question I’ve already been asked is, “Will you be getting rid of your offer of DVDs?”  No, not at this time.  Many couples that I work still would like this physical media and I actually enjoy jumping into the DVD authoring program and creating your animated menus, scene selections, and fancy DVD artwork.  There are many videographers who I know who simply don’t know how to create, author, and render a DVD – and it is for this reason that this option is not offered by them.  The other reason is also that many see physical media as an outdated technology (and I see this point – think about most of your new laptops and computers now a days — there is no media drive at all).  While there may come a time when I will discontinue DVD rendering, for right now this will simply be an additional bonus and no extra charge to the bride.

I’m looking forward to handing these out and I’ll take numerous pictures of the drive when they come in (and I’ve got several coming to me very soon).

Fall / Holiday Mini Sessions Now Booking – Port Orange, Ormond Beach, New Smyrna Beach

Fall Colors in Daytona Beach

Fall / Holiday sessions are now in full effect!  This is the time, as many of you know, when I love to give back to the community as well as also drop my prices significantly for the holidays.  Give back to the community you ask?  Oh yes!  If you missed out – let me fill you in.

I did a shout out online about a week ago looking for some families to assist me in some promotional material that I’m working on.  The purpose behind this was two fold: (1) I honestly did need a few families to work with to enable me to not only capture some great images (which we will do), but to capture some great video footage also.  And secondly (2), I decided that whoever contacted me – their session would be completely free, no questions asked.  So, those of you that did reach out to me, congratulations to you and I look forward to working with you!  If you missed out, I may do this again down the road here, so be sure to follow my website and social media pages!

Back to the Mini Sessions!

Fall Colors in Daytona Beach

Information about the session can be found online on the front page of my website or by clicking the “Holiday Sessions” link across the top menu.  The sessions are mini sessions (30 minutes) and are designed to capture some great images of you and your family while also not being extremely long.  I understand some of you may have little ones and I completely understand how they can become restless, distracted, etc.  I’ve got two boys, so I definitely understand about kids and their short attention span (at times).  :-)  I’ve had a great time in the past with families, so I have no doubt that we’ll also have a great time during the session together.

Again, all of the information is on the Holiday sessions page and if you have any further questions or comments, you can always contact me here through the website or call me directly.  I look forward to working with you and your family!

Drone Footage – Venetian Bay

Real Estate Video Daytona Beach OrmondBeach

I’m working on several homes within the Venetian Bay area and this one in particular is just gorgeous – absolutely huge and the pool itself reminds me of a little lagoon.  Here’s some rough draft footage from flying over the home and from behind.  The sun took a turn on me once I got behind the home, so I’ll probably end up reshooting that portion – but I’ve flown around it getting a 360 perspective and from different angles, showcasing what the home looks like.  I’m also shooting in other areas of this sub-vision and will have that video up online shortly.

In the meantime, I just wanted to share some of this video for now!  Check out the Real Estate portion of my website if you’re interested in having your listing showcased with a real video virtual tour.



Real Estate Video Tours and Photography – Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Ponce Inlet

Real Estate Video Tours

I’ve been working on my website for a couple of days now – a few minutes, a few minutes there – and with the interest regarding the video tours that I’ve posted recently on Facebook and Instagram, I went ahead and launched a subsection on my website highlighting this service that I offer.  I’ve talked to many Realtors who want to do something different besides just photos and a “virtual tour” with images that scale and fade in and fade out.  That type of technology has been around for quite a while, and so I’m offering something different and an experience that gives the user a complete visual experience of the home, both from an exterior and interior perspective.

I start with exterior video of the home, offer complete aerial footage (not an extra cost at all), and then proceed inside the home and move through it, again, as if a potential buyer is walking through the home.  Additional features that are offered are elements such as an introduction video from you (the Realtor), a complete voice over (as you’ll see in the example video on the web page), and many others.

I’m still adding to this section of the website, but check back shortly and you’ll see it continue to grow.  I still have a great deal of both aerial and interior video to go through, so I will post more posts as soon as I have these particular projects wrapped up.  If you’re a Realtor and looking for something different such as this, please give me a shout – I would love to work with you!  (And if you’re reading this on mobile – be sure to hit the site on a Mac or PC and you’ll immediately greeted with some sample footage of a beautiful home in Venetian Bay.  More to come soon!

Fall Colors in Daytona Beach

Fall Colors in Daytona Beach

With the cooler weather beginning to sit in (well … somewhat …. at least it’s not in the 90’s anymore), now is the time to begin thinking about those family portraits that you want to capture coming up here – or for your holiday portrait around the corner.  Many of these images below were taken around the October, November, and December time frames and although all we have is green here in the Daytona Beach area, with a little magic in the editing process, we can definitely enjoy those fall colors, yes, even here in Florida.

You’ll see a lot more of these coming up shortly with several families that have inquired about family portraits.  I’ve worked with many families in the pasts who have other family up north and they get to experience the leaves changes, the cooler weather, and everything else that goes into the fall weather sitting in – my family enjoys this every year.  And I thought, ” … just b/c we live in Daytona, doesn’t mean we should miss out on the fall colors either!”  So, as I mentioned, stay tuned over the next few weeks and you’ll see some more of these “Fall images” as well as some behind the scenes video so you can see the magic happen within their images.
