Please have a look at some of our most commonly asked questions as we'd like to ensure we clear up all concerns related to our services!
- Is this your full time profession? -
It is! We specialize in Wedding Films and only take on a limited number of weddings each calendar year. This allows us to deliver our clients a film with the utmost of quality and professionalism.
- How much will you charge? -
To help give you an idea for budgeting purposes, our Wedding Cinematography rates begin at $3,500. To ensure we're a great fit for you and your spouse, please send us an email via our contact page or call us anytime @ 1-502-627-0469 for more details!
- What is the process of your films from start to finish? -
We wish this were an easy question to answer, but unfortunately it's not. Our process is very detailed so we often tell our couples, you hired a professional so sit back, enjoy your wedding day and we'll take care of the rest! The only simplified answer we can provide in relation to this question is that from start to finish, our Feature Films require 80+ hours of production to complete. There's so much that goes on behind the scenes that we typically just try to leave it at that, "behind the scenes".
- Do you travel? If so, what additional fees are included? -
Of course! We live for travel and never turn down the opportunity to document our wonderful couples in the most exotic and adventurous landmarks. We'll go anywhere there's a love story to be told and ensure every exciting moment is captured to forever remember! All travel expenses vary by location. Please contact us today for more information!
- How would you describe your style of wedding films? -
As we're both huge film buffs, we always appreciate a beautiful score to accommodate to the overall cinematic experience. We absolutely love motion pictures and are working endlessly to achieve that look in our productions. Sometimes we use a lot of dialogue to help tell the story, sometimes we choose a little less. We love breathtaking aerials and loved to be truly swept away by what we create. As artists, the beauty of our work is that we never know how a final production will turn out until it's complete. What we do know however is that we absolutely LOVE couple's who open up to us on their wedding day, allowing a few good minutes of beautiful, intimate moments to be captured on film!
- Do you book by the hour? -
Our packages begin with 8 hours of coverage as we work quickly and always know exactly what we're going for. Additional hours are available if you'd like us to stick around however!
- Do you offer additional films? -
We do! Our most requested film is the Full Length Ceremony Film. While we always include parts of the couple's ceremony in our Feature Films to tell the story, we simply cannot add the ceremony in it's entirety (for pacing and story telling issues). If the ceremony is on the shorter side sometimes it may be included in it's entirety but say it's a Catholic Ceremony with a full mass, it would be recommended the couple order an additional Full Length Ceremony Film from us if they'd like to watch their ceremony in it's entirety. Please contact us today to see what other additional services we provide!
- When can I expect to receive my Feature Film? -
Feature Films are always delivered within 4-6 months from the date of the couple's wedding. We are full time wedding filmmakers and often shoot anywhere from 25-35 weddings a year so we're working endlessly on films to ensure a happy turn around time!
- Can I select the music for my Feature Film? -
Music selection is a tricky subject. While we purchase all of our music from a musical licensing provider (in most cases The Music Bed), our couples are more than welcome to suggest their favorite songs to us. If the couple suggests songs that we cannot license, their Feature Film will not be allowed to be shared publicly for copyright issues.
- We prefer beautiful, candid moments of us in our film. Are you going to direct us? -
The direction we give to our couples is very minimal with just a few shots possibly staged throughout the day. Because we typically meet all of our couples well in advance and stay in consistent communication up until the day of your wedding, by the time filming has begun we all feel welcomed and comfortable around each other. Some of the best moments we've ever captured of our couple's on film have been spur of the moment, everyone laughing and having a great time. Those are the raw, beautiful moments you never get back. Once again however, we absolutely LOVE couple's who open up to us on their wedding day, allowing a few good minutes of beautiful, intimate moments to be captured on film. This process is required to ensure we tell the best story of your wedding day possible.
- Can I purchase the RAW footage? -
Absolutely, we hold onto all of our couple's footage for up to one (1) year so contact us at anytime to purchase. *External Hard Drive to be provided by couple.
- Can I purchase DVD's, Blu Ray Disc's or USB's at a later date? -
While we no longer offer DVD's or Blu Ray Disc's, we do provide Keepsake USB Wooden Boxes which are beautiful and include all films. *Additional Fee for Keepsake USB Wooden Box.
You're a great fit for us, how do we start the booking process?
We're completely honored to hear that you trust our vision of providing you and your spouse with the most beautiful wedding film possible. We know how precious these moments truly are and you'll cherish them with friends and family for a lifetime to come. Please inquire with us from our contact page to ensure we currently have your date available. We typically book our couple's anywhere from 12-15 months out so the sooner you inquire with us the better. The next step if we're available on your date is to set up a meeting to go over all of your exciting wedding day details. For couple's out of state, we love nothing more than a good Skype or FaceTime session to get to know you on a more personal level. Once everything has been discussed, we confirm our couple's date with a 50% deposit (the remaining balance to be paid 30 days before the wedding date) and a signed contract from both parties. After this process, we strive to stay in consistent communication (for any slight changes in plans, extra details or special moments you'd like documented) with all of our couple's up until the wedding date!
