FARMINGTON HILLS – A local company near Detroit is helping couples make their wedding day a little more Do-It-Yourself while also adding in a professional feel with the help of top grade HD cameras.
Wedit is a five-year-old DIY wedding video company that has helped thousands of couples capture and preserve videos and photos from their big day. Kari Burnstein and her husband partnered with another couple earlier this year to purchase the company from Bizdom. Burnstein and her friend were looking for something to do and the opportunity nearly fell in her lap.
“It was too good of an opportunity not to buy,” Burnstein said. “And what we’re trying to do is grow the the business beyond weddings. We’re trying to change the market.”
The average price for hiring a wedding videographer for a six-hour wedding costs around $1,900. Through Wedit, couples, family and friends have an entire week to fill up to 15GB of data on each of the five cameras. The extra time allows for a more diverse range of video to be captured, an option that those who hire a one-day videographer rarely have.
“Weddings are the most special point in two people’s lives. They have two goals. One: they want loved ones to have a good time and two: they want to legally propose their love infront of people. We’re really focusing on making Wedit more fun, capturing more footage and getting guests involved. We insure the video for life,” Burnstein explained.
A videographer only has one lens. Burnstein says that through Wedit couples can capture all sorts of stuff through various lenses. Instead of having only one angle of the cake being cut or only one clear angle of the first dance couples can now see almost a panoramic experience of their wedding, through the eyes of invitees.
“You’re not going to get all of it. A 30 sec clip is one thing to text over, but a seven-minute first dance… no one is texting or uploading that for you. I’ve had people say that the coolest thing for this experience was the cake cutting. With five cameras, one can capture everything from every angle and you never know what you’re going to get,” Burnstein said.
“It’s not as professional as a someone with the lights and the stuff. But in today’s world that’s not what weddings are,” he said.
All video shot is uploaded online for download and a hard copy is sent to the newlyweds. For an additional price, the Webit editorial team will take the footage and create additional video from further edited material equipped with a song of choice. For an upgraded price folks can request the team to edit down the video, add five to ten songs and the final product will include the vows and speeches. All video is stored online on a private server for 12 months and available for download.
For Burnstein and the team at Wedit weddings are all about having fun. And they want to ensure that folks have the most memorable experience possible.
