HOW DO WE BOOK?
Once you have decided on a package that fits you the best, a small deposit will be needed to hold the day.
WHAT IS THE DEPOSIT?
We require $300 to hold the day which will be subtracted from the total cost of whichever package you choose! The remaining cost will be due on the day of the wedding.
WHO FILMS AND EDITS MY WEDDING VIDEO?
Our head videographer Doug will be capturing your wedding day as well as editing your wedding videos. On the rare occasion that Doug is already booked you will be told before booking with us and another highly talented videographer that has been trained will capture your day upon approval by you. We believe you should know who your hiring and you shouldn’t be surprised on who shows up.
HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU FILM FOR?
Our packages all come with 8-11 hours of coverage! You have the option to add hours if your wedding will be over 11 hours at an additional cost. We start shooting when the bride begins getting ready!
WHAT'S A SAME DAY EDIT?
A Same Day Edit is a rough draft of the Highlight that is edited on the day of your wedding. After we film the Ceremony we race to the laptop to begin editing so that we can display the edit during your reception! The video is played on a monitor that we provide and is played on a loop so it can be viewed throughout the entire rest of the night!
We recommend Same Day Edits to clients who want to use a video to put their guests in Aw! It’s a perfect decoration piece and really gets friends and family excited! Plus who doesn’t want to see their big day on their big day?!
DO I NEED TWO SHOOTERS?
With two shooters you will receive two different types of footage. Our Head Videographer will capture all parts of the day with creative movement with the goal of making every shot artistic. Head Videographer footage is the only footage used to create your Highlight Video while Second Videographer footage is used for your Feature Edit (feature is included in Diamond Package).
The second shooter captures the entire day from a tripod and this footage contains all parts of the day in full with audio. Our Diamond Package comes with a second shooter and all other packages have the option to add a second shooter for an additional cost.
We recommend a second shooter to those who want the entire ceremony and speeches captured in full!
WHAT IS A FEATURE EDIT?
A Feature Edit is a documentary style edit made for those who want to re-live every moment of their wedding day. This means that every speech is captured entirely as well as the ceremony from start to finish. See an example of a feature edit here.
DO YOU PICK OUR MUSIC FOR THE HIGHLIGHT?
We ask every client to submit at least five upbeat songs that they might want to use. Some songs match days perfectly and If the songs submitted don’t we let you know so that together we can find the one that does! If asked, We have tons of songs that can be suggested and used upon your approval!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR VIDEO?
Depending on the season it could take anywhere from 2-8 weeks for you to receive a highlight edit. The feature edit can take up to 3-5 months depending on the season as well.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY RAW FOOTAGE AND WHEN?
After each wedding edit has been completed and sent to you, you will receive the raw footage via high definition digital download or by a hard drive provided by you.
