We have a lot of fun at local wedding shows when we reveal to couples our unique concept in wedding videos. A bit of surprise ('oooh that's new'), a bit of excitement (mostly at the price - $898) & often a healthy bit of skepticism (especially before we had great customer reviews to back us up). Over the course of meeting hundreds of couples, the number one concern - Can my friends really do this?Our answer? H#% Yeah!

When our clients book our wedding video service, we typically have 6 months + lead time on the wedding. We use that time to work out a plan with the couple, their wedding planner & two of their friends who we affectionately call your #filmityourself crew, to create a plan for shooting a wedding video that is 100% uniquely them.
The professional part - we take care of that. We provide pro quality video cameras that are easy to use and of course our editors who specialize in editing ametuer shot footage. The DIY part is where the couples' friends come in. However, DIY is a bit of a misnomer as you are not truly 'doing it yourself'. We think of our business as a hybrid; part DIY part professional. We take pride in coaching you & your friends in the months leading up to your wedding. The result is a super sharable wedding video that is full of your personality, your style and your unique wedding.
"Working with Clipsake was great! Jen offered great advice on how to capture some awesome shots and answered all our questions. She was just as invested in capturing our wedding day as any videographer who was attending your wedding would be. Not only were the cameras easy and fun to use but they really allowed us to capture our special day in our own way!" Marylin - married summer 2017

So How Easy Is It?
If your friends can use a smart phone, they can DEFINITELY work our video cameras. The manual settings are there to provide stabilization, light optimization & record audio without you needing to adjust any settings. Our instructions on how to use the cameras are a couple of quick bullet points because that's all you need!~
Of course, there are also technical fail safe's in place. There is a backup SD card in each camera so if one corrupts, there is a back-up. We send extra batteries as well as the chargers, just in case someone forgets to watch the battery life (we've all been there ;). We send 2 video cameras so that you can capture some shots from different angles and get two unique perspectives. As a bonus, even if you accidentally drop one down a well - you will still have one ready to capture your 'I do's' and your amazing wedding exit.
Any location, any time, anywhere in BC!
Because our wedding video booking system is online we have gotten to know some amazing couples & many intimate details of their unique weddings yet never met them in person! One of the reasons for that is we send our video cameras anywhere in BC for the same price. So besides working with couples in the Lower Mainland where we are based, we've also made wedding videos in the Kootenays, in the Cariboo and can't wait to book our first Vancouver Island wedding.
We Skype, text, email and phone chat our way through prep for your wedding. We are flexible becuase we understand that every couple has a unique style and way of communicating. So, let's chat in a way that works for you.
We use rugged, waterproof, Canadian made NANUK cases to ship our video cameras anywhere in BC
Wanna try them out?
This Saturday February 24th we are one of the local vendors at the Lower Mainland's first ever DIY Wedding show. This show has some great non-traditional wedding vendors who offer affordable and creative ways for couples to add personalized touches to their wedding.
Besides goodie bags, and some great giveaways, we will be hosting a fun video scavenger hunt (yet another chance to win prizes!). This will give people the chance to put our cameras to the test & see what its like to be one of our #filmityourself crew.
