Q & A
Pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am happy to customize any package to fit any size budget. Don't be afraid to ask.
There are many ways I can customize something for you.
What is my typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to first speak with couples to determine what their needs are. Customize a package based on their needs. Once they have decided to book I will email them out a contract, and deposit invoice to be paid online or mail a check. Deposit is $200 to book and final payment is due by the event day. Preferable before, but I am ok with final payment being the day of. I also can set up installment payments if needed. About a week prior I will reach out to the couple and ask for any updates and a timeline, if there are any special details or surprises I need to catch. For instance the brides mother wanted to surprise her with a Bag Pipe Player after the ceremony. I raced to make sure I caught that shot. I will remain in the background during the duration of the wedding and Reception. I may only ask for a few shots during the photo session time. the rest I let happen naturally. Since every wedding is unique I look for anything and everything I can do to make it special to the couple. Afterwards I need Apx. 90-120 days to complete. It's a creative process and every artist needs a little time to pull everything together seamlessly. Then I will email the link to your video and finally if a DVD is requested ship out the DVD(s).
What education and/or training do I have that relates to your work?
Graduated in 2000 with a BA in Art with a concentration on graphic design from Colby-Sawyer College in New London New Hampshire. I am a graphic designer for the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. And have held that position for the
last 13 years. I work in the Marketing department and have worked on several professional video shoots for VisitMyrtleBeach.com. I incorporate quite a bit of graphic design into my videos.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
A coworker of mine asked me if I could video her sons wedding on New Years Eve 2012 I excepted and then from there I got a recommendation for another wedding in June of 2013, then 2 more weddings in 2013. At one of which I met a DJ who was looking for a videographer to add to his wedding packages. And by 2014 Balzotti Creative Wedding Films was born. I like to say wedding videography found me.
What types of customers have I worked with?
Lots of different couples from Charleston to Wilmington to Darlington. Whether a traditional wedding or beach bedding or LGBT, it's just so important to capture moments in time. I've also done several birthday videos and Happy Retirement Videos.
