How soon should I hire my videographer?
We typically book 6 -18 months prior to the wedding.
How does your pricing work?
We have a couple of preset packages which you can view on our pricing page, however, we are happy to work with you to put together a package that fits your wedding. We require a deposit to reserve the date at the time you sign the contract with us and the remaining balance is due no later than the wedding day.
How long have you been filming weddings? And how many do you do per year?
We have been filming weddings since 2010 and we typically film 20-30 weddings each year. We limit the number of weddings each year to make sure that we can give each wedding our full attention.
How many videographers will be at my wedding?
Our premium package includes 1 videographer, our exclusive package includes 2 videographers. Having 2 videographers
adds to the depth and quality of your video.
Do I get to review the edited video and request changes?
Yes, you will receive a password protected link to preview your video once the initial draft is completed. At that time you can request changes and we will do our best to accommodate them for the final edit.
How long will it take to receive my finished wedding film?
Depending on the time of the year, we typically have a 6-8 week turnaround time for you to receive the first draft of your video.
Can we meet and talk about my ideas for my video?
Absolutely! We would love to meet with you and go over any ideas you have. We can also go over all the details to make sure we are ready for your big day.
Do we get to choose the music for the video?
We have access to several music licensing services that provide a ton of options for music that can be used in your video. Many wedding videographers illegally use music that is not licensed to be used in their videos. Besides being irresponsible and illegal this can cause copyright problems (such as your video being silenced or removed) when you want to share your video on social media. If there is a song your really want, let us know and we can see if we are able to get a license for it.
What does your equipment look like?
We use a variety of high quality professional cameras. We always try to not be a distraction while still making sure we capture the important moments. All our cameras work well in lower light conditions, but we also bring lights to help in darker situations that we sometimes encounter throughout the reception. To capture audio during your ceremony, we have a wireless lapel microphone for the officiant, as well as the groom. These microphones pick up the bride’s audio during the vows as well. We also work with your DJ or AV provider to plug into their system to record anything that goes through their speakers or through the house system.
What else should I know about wedding videography?
The reality of wedding videography is that you only get one chance to do it right. If you are considering someone that is willing to film all day long, with multiple operators, give you all of the raw footage, dvds, etc., etc. for one low price, you might want to take a step back and see what is missing. Most of the time they are offering you a 2-3 minute highlight reel with the best of their shots, and will often not include audio from the ceremony or reception. Your wedding video is one of the few items you get to take away with you from your wedding day. You can’t go back and get more footage, or better audio once it happens, so are you going to really trust an inexperienced videographer or your friend, or family member to do that for you?
