FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why did you get started in videography?

As a father to three beautiful daughters, I found myself always with a home camcorder filming those unforgettable moments, cheerleading, sports, and other activities. With boxes full of old video tapes & media, I realized the need to archive these to DVD to save the memories for future viewing. Transferring my own memories soon turned into family & friends asking me to do the same for them. After starting Rush Videos in 2005, we filmed our first wedding in San Destin, FL. Rush Videos started with fifteen weddings that first year and has grown since with hundreds of events each year, including weddings, sports, church, and commercial productions. As I always say, "Some people have to go to work, as a videographer I get to go to work". Enjoying what you do is definitely a blessing & I consider it an honor to be founder of a company that brings so much joy into so many lives.

How long have you been in business?

Rush Videos, LLC was originally founded in 2005 by Gary. Although we started as primarily a wedding videography company, we now offer a variety of services for individuals and businesses. 

Why do I need a professional videographer?

While there are many consumer devices available, nothing matches the quality or reliability of professional grade video equipment and a properly trained crew to complete the project.

What is a common misconception about video production?

That you simply hit record, point the camera in a general direction, and when you're done you hand over a DVD containing the recording. From the initial planning stages, finding the perfect shot, editing the raw footage, and distributing the video to a multitude of platforms there are many more steps to succesfully complete a video production project.

Can you record in High-Definition (HD)?

Yes we can shoot and deliver in 720 or 1080 resolution which is considered "high-definition" content. The consumer market has been very slow to trade in their old reliable DVD players for Blu-ray devices so we can still create standard DVD's as well. For online viewing, we optimize the video to retain the highest quality possible while keeping the files small enough to meet platform requirements.

Dedra Rush vice president of Rush Videos

Dedra / co-founder

Hey I’m Dedra, thanks for taking time to read my bio. In 2005, while attending Samford University School of Pharmacy, I also co-founded Rush Videos with my husband, Gary. We filmed our first wedding in San Destin, FL and since then have traveled throughout the southeast filming weddings and events.

While I love weddings and working as a pharmacist, I also enjoy cooking, watching Alabama football, “Roll Tide”, and spending time with my family, my husband and my beautiful daughters. Yes, we have all girls and my husband still can’t braid hair but does an awesome pony tail. Maybe having daughters is what makes us love filming weddings so much! Capturing the awesome memories from the most exciting day in a girl’s life makes it all so rewarding. I feel that a wedding video is so essential to have in order to capture the special moments that you may have missed or just want to relive over and over.

My most enjoyable moments of the wedding day are the bride and bridesmaids getting ready and of course the dad and daughter walking down the aisle together. All of this brings back memories to my own wedding day and the attention to detail that comes with making this day the most memorable day of your life. The pure joy of getting to sit down with your spouse and family and watch the events of that day together is so fun and so worth it.

The best part of my job at Rush Videos is hearing the testimonials and knowing that somehow we had a small part in preserving those wonderful memories.

Aaron / production assistant

My name is Aaron. I attended the University of Alabama, majoring in Telecommunications & Film. I began developing a love for editing as I attended film classes. While at Alabama, I worked for Crimson Tide Productions and interned at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater.

At CTP I shot video, edited highlights, and provided video board footage at live events. While at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, I worked on the camera crew at concerts featuring, Merle Haggard, Ringo Starr, and BB King.

When I'm not editing, I enjoy deer hunting, fishing, hanging out with friends, and watching movies. During football season, I root on the Tide. I try to make it to as many games as possible, but even if I can't I can usually be found keeping up with the score in one way or the other.

I love working for Rush Videos, because it gives me an opportunity to be creative. Nothing is more satisfying than getting feedback from satisfied clients.

  • Best videography ever!! Rush Videos went above and beyond the call of duty when I hired them for my wedding. I get to relive my wedding day over and over every time I watch my video. It was an amazing day and Rush Videos helped make that possible.

  • Unbelievable! These (2) guys, Gary & Ben are a true blast! We loved working with them both every minute from the slide show for the rehearsal dinner, the Father/Daughter wedding dance slide show, and the entire wedding day. If you are uncomfortable with a camera around, then these are the guys for you. It seems you don't even know they are there. After 'The Day' when you see the 'Coming Soon' video - it is tears all over again. They will capture the day and then some. XO

  • Gary and his crew at Rush Video produces the most amazing videos. If you want something extra, ( besides photography) to remember your wedding event with, then RUSH is the place to call. The thing I like is that he is never in the wrong place and never in the way of what I do as a photographer.
