The footage is recorded by high-quality 3ccd digital video cameras at full high definition resolution. It is important to note that the footage is completely untouched and unedited. However, it makes great b-roll footage if you have someone putting together a wedding video for you or we can arrange for videography services and livestreaming as one package.
