Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I contact you?

Of course the earlier the better but I've recently filmed a wedding with less than 2 weeks notice so it is possible - it usually depends whether I can get childcare for my kids however

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No

What is the charge for traveling?

None in terms of mileage but if it's more than a 3 hour round trip (from Banstead) then I would need to overnight at a maximum cost of £60

What kind of technology do you use?

Digital

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

My goal is to make the video as beautiful and memorable as the day is to you without interfering with your day, and I've found the best way to do that is to focus more on the people than the location

What kind of equipment do you use?

I have two cameras; a smaller DSLR-type camera (Lumix GH5) and a slightly larger tripod-mounted camera (Canon C300) that I use during the ceremony and speeches

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

Alone

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Yes

How do you charge extra time?

I Don't have an overtime charge. I typically work out the schedule with the couples beforehand but usually 12 hours coverage would see us from bridal prep to the end-of-night dancing

What are the forms of payment?

To confirm a date I'd need you to fill in a small form and send a £200 deposit to the account and sort code on the form

How do you work?

With all my films I'm looking for an emotional feeling but whether you want me to take a step back and not interact too much or you want me to be right there with you the whole day is up to you

    More Than We Could Ever Have Hoped For

    As someone who works in the film industry, I could not be happier with James and his work. His videos were cinematic, emotional, and completely captured the heart and story of our day.

    Strongly recommend!

    James videoed our wedding and I couldn't recommend him enough!
    Our wedding video is so beautiful, better than I could have imagined. Something we will treasure forever. He wasn't intrusive at all on the day, in fact I barely noticed him which was exactly what I wanted. And he was super flexible in the run up to the wedding - would definitely recommend

    Loved it!

    Thanks so much for the films you made. We had 2 films made for us, one short and glamorous and the other longer (25 mins) and more personal...but still beautiful.
    We're so happy with what we got and at a good price - bargain. x

    Highly Recommended Wedding Videographer

    JAMES OHALLORAN STUDIOS is absolutely fantastic and captured all the special moments from our wedding reception in such a perfect way.

    James has done an excellent job with the filming on the day and the editing of our final videos. Thank you James you've been wonderful throughout the entire process and we will be sure to recommend your services to everyone we know. Thank you for making us feel relaxed throughout the day and thank you for all the support you have provided. We would give more than five stars if there was more ! Ruwan & Prashanthi

    James The Great

    James did our wedding on Saturday 8th February 2020 and it is not an exaggeration to say this man is not just a videographer, he is a magician. I found him via Google search late last year and after watching the videos on his site I told my wife, "this is the guy". So we booked him, and close to the wedding we spoke briefly to explain what would happen on the day.

    On the wedding day he was extremely professional, punctual, friendly, helpful beyond his remit and collaborative with the photographers.

    After the day I had full confidence that he will make a video for my wife and I to cherish, on our minimoon I said to her that he will make it magical. The biggest compliment I can give is that he did just that. I was suffering from a little bit of post wedding blues and the video cured that and reminded me just how great a day it was. The music selection accompanying the video was perfect, he even made me look like a half decent dancer which in itself is sorcery because I was born with two left feet. There is not a single thing I would change about it. I will be forever thankful to him.

    Trust James to make your day even more special.

    Highly recommend!

    We organised our wedding and babies christening in one very last minute, and found James O’Halloran studios just weeks before our wedding online. We asked if he would be available and as it was a Sunday in December he had the day free. We were anxious at first as we found him online and not through recommendations but the moment I spoke to him I knew he was trustworthy and I was so excited about the video. We spoke beforehand and ran through everything thoroughly and James put me at ease with everything and was always there if I had any questions and got back to me so quickly. On the day James arrived promptly and was so lovely and friendly. He fitted in perfectly and worked so well with the photographer. He was discreet and was there to help on the day with anything we needed. Our sneak peak video was ready within weeks and we were soooo impressed and couldn’t believe it. It was so intricate and captured the day perfectly. When we received the full video a few weeks late we were blown away. It Thank you so much James for such a fantastic service. We will be sure to contact you again for any other weddings or events within our family. We can’t thank you enough!

    A wonderful day

    Thanks so much for a great experience and a truly lovely film. It was so nice to meet you and it was like a breeze. I wasn't sure what it would be like having a camera in my face all day but for most of the day I barely noticed the cameraman and when he was doing more personal filming with my husband and I we got used to it so quickly and it became fun.
    We love the finished films. It's such a great memory!

    Thank you

    Thanks to James and the crew for making a potentially very stressful day actually quite enjoyable.
    It helped that we'd met with James a couple months before our wedding to do a short video shoot which was a part of the package we ordered.
    It looks stunning and it's such a great memory!

    Exactly what we wanted

    Thanks for the fantastic videos.
    James was great at communicating with us before the wedding and we were able to run through exactly what we wanted...our wedding was a little complicated.
    We had the more cinematic, stylish shots in the build up to the ceremony but after that we wanted a more documentary approach and the two styles combined worked perfectly for us.
    He's a great choice if you want someone you can trust.

    Perfect

    We had such a good experience with James during our wedding and in the free day's filming he gave us after our honeymoon. It was such a good idea to have the extra day after the wedding because we were both so relaxed and calm (and didn't mind my dress getting a bit dirty) and that bit of filming we did made our film so 'movie-like'. I would definitely recommend him!!

    Incredibly professional

    We got married at the start of the year and weren't sure whether to get a wedding videographer but we're so glad we did.
    He was very kind and calm and it never once felt like it was obtrusive to have him there.
    The videos were amazing!! So beautiful and magical and so much better than what my wife and I had imagined.
    I would highly recommend the company to anyone getting married.
    Thank you!
