Frequently Asked Questions:
What’s your booking process? We like to set up a quick phone call first to make sure we’re a good for fit each-other then we’ll send a questionnaire, contract and invoice. Our booking fee is $1000 down which goes toward your total and reserves your date.
What is a highlight film and a documentary film? Our highlight films are what you see here and on social media and are very polished, story driven, and sometimes jump from different parts of your day (time-shifting) to show emotional moments and tell a story quickly (4-8 minutes depending on the collection). Our documentary films cover prep all the way though the send off and are usually 30-90 minutes long. They are generally in chronological order and not as polished as our highlight films but much more polished than raw footage. They are completely watchable in one sitting (press play and sit back) and flow from one scene to the next with mini highlight/montage sections sprinkled though-out. Here’s an example of a documentary film.
How are my videos delivered? We deliver all of our films via flash drive, digital download link, and streaming with apps like Vimeo, YouTube, or other platforms that work for viewing on phones, iPads, and smart TV’s, etc.
When are my videos delivered? We try to deliver all films ASAP and will have them to you within 90 days of your wedding. Our teaser films are delivered within a week.
What’s a teaser film? A 60 second mini highlight video delivered within a week of your wedding. Our teaser films are included with some of our collections or can be added in addition. Here’s an example.
Who picks the music? We have certain licensing regulations that we must follow so we pick the music. We always pick music that best matches our couples personalities and the footage captured from the day.
Do you video the full ceremony, first dances and other important events? Yes, even if your collection does not include a full documentary film, we will film it for future upgrades. These are once in a lifetime moments so we want you to have the option to upgrade later.
What is rehearsal dinner coverage? The main point of rehearsal dinner coverage is to capture the speeches from your friends and family. These speeches are perfect to mix in with your highlight film to help convey story and emotion. You’ll also receive the speeches in full as a separate video.
What is the engagement session shoot? This is a separate day of filming with shots of the couple mixed with an interview session (optional). This could be used as a save the date style film or something to show at your engagement party or rehearsal dinner. Here’s an example of an engagement session film.
Can we hire you to film our ceremony only or less coverage than one of your collections? We believe that future you will want a family heirloom to show to your kids and grandchildren and our style of wedding filmmaking is best fit for our starting collection. Occasionally we will film a Sunday or weekday wedding with less coverage and customize a package for that.
