same day edit video
wedding highlights: 2  20-30 minute dvds of wedding highlights
2 videographers
1 editor

 The kwento: Sir Junnel was our second best option(financially speaking) and we met him july 2011 for the initial meeting. He was very easy to deal with and that time, we were undecided on which package to get (budget constraints) so we said that we'll just finalize everything a few months before the wedding. He was trying to convince us to get the package including the pre-nup video but we couldnt afford it so we just decided to get the package indicated above.


They were right on schedule about everything! They arrived at about 9:45 when in fact, the call time was 10:30. Call me weird but I was dismayed that they had to come so early- I knew it would be harder to move around with cameras everywhere and I was right, I felt very conscious with all the cameras around. But, they were very discreet and it was still okay to move around despite their presence.

In showing the sde, they were also right on time. We told them that they'd show the clip after the dinner and they were able to deliver right on time. We're due to receive the wedding clips this july and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'd be able to deliver just as well as the wedding day.

They really know their craft. There were times when I was starting to get annoyed because I didnt feel like they were shooting anything during the preps but I WAS SO WRONG. I saw a lot of clips from the preps on the onsite video meaning they were just very discreet. Our guests were also amazed by Sir Junnel's efficiency- sabi nila, he was working relentlessly sa church and sa reception and he knew exactly the clips that he wanted to include in our video. I also commend the other videographer in the team. Kuya kept throwing jokes to lighten the mood but I found him really cheesy, but when the video came out, most of the shots that I remember were from him and I really liked how he did them.


The only con I can think of is budget. Some teams offer as low as 15k for photo and video packages, including the albums, pre-nup pictorial and wedding coverage. However, I believe what one photographer said in his website: photography and videography, no matter how similar they may be, are two crafts that are quite different. Therefore, a good photographer may not necessarily be a good videographer and vice versa. Thus, I believe that even if sir Junnel's rate is higher since it is not bundled with a photography package, it is worth every penny.

Trivia: There's a woman whom I cannot necessarily call as a "third party" in the relationship. All the same, she caused turmoil in our life a few months before the wedding. it is through her that I first learned of our sde song. So there's some kinda sense in the saying that there's a silver lining to these things after all.

Happy viewing and hope ya like it! (I still watch this from time to time and it makes me all mushy and floaty again :D)

Hi. Very nice po. May tanong lang po ako. After ilang month po nakukuha ang video po?

Arnold and April said...

Hi Kristine.. Ang nakalagay sa contract 2 months ung final edited video, nameet naman nila Sir Junnel

Robert said...

Mag 2 years na wala pa din kami nakukuha na video, ayaw pa sagutin ang phone nya... I don't know what happened to Junnel, but seems he does not set his priorities right... we are actually planning to file a legal case against him

Arnold and April said...

Hi Robert..I'm sorry to hear that kasi kami hindi naman kami nagkaproblema kay Sir Junnel. Hope you get feedback from him soon

mariz said...

Kami rin more than two years na wala parin video namin. I think he is a CON!

Robert said...

Yes I noticed that his site has not been updated since Dec. 2012, marami siguro tinakbuhan, we are planning to file for legal actions na nga
