Once you have confirmed you would like a copy of your raw footage, I import all the files into my editing software and scrub through every file. These files often total 3-6hours, so this becomes a long process. I do this to ensure that the data I provide to you while yes is raw I want to ensure no issues are lurking in there. While this is a long but, in my opinion, essential process and I will not provide raw footage without it.
Once I am happy that all files are as they should be, I purchase a storage device and transfer all the files across, package up and post them to you.
As there is a cost to this process, in time and also financially, I charge for this service. I understand that this service is not for everyone. For me, this is useful for couples who want to have a backup of everything that was filmed on their day and who may want to see every moment captured on their wedding day.
