Starting in 1981, Claus Martel produced many videos when he served in the US Army and continues today to produce documentaries for the U.S. Government. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the same university.
For the 15th straight year, he is under contract with the University of North Alabama to document special events. He is the only videographer in North Alabama to receive an award at the White House in 2002 for one of his productions. His videos have been broadcast on nationwide television. His production of first-class video products has produced a loyal following, and the majority of his work comes through referrals from satisfied customers. References from other customers are available upon request.
Maximum coverage of your wedding day is achieved by using up to five high definition Sony cameras, contingent on the site circumstances. This ensures full coverage of your wedding without the videographer being seen or heard. During weddings, the groom is outfitted with a small, discrete microphone to ensure every word is captured. There is never an extra charge for standard DVDs. Every customer will receive two Blu-ray DVDs.
Philosophy of work
Every wedding is different! They are as unique as the participants. Claus' approach has always been to be in the background and never seen during a ceremony. His shooting and editing style is documentary - the finished video is a document of the wedding weekend, something that you can watch and share over and over again.
Ask any client and they’ll tell you that customer service is Claus Martel’s calling card – not just a buzzword. He will work tirelessly with clients, wedding planners and church coordinators to ensure the best possible video product. Delivery time on the finished product also is the best in the industry. Clients see their completed wedding video in approximately 45 days.
Why a Wedding Video?
Wedding photographs are a tradition. A wedding video is never a substitute for the art of still photography. However, photographs cannot replace the live action of your wedding day. Only a wedding video can record your special day as it happens.
