What distinguishes your work from other videographers?

Other videographers are really in your way and in your face. We like to shoot from a distance, work with the other professional vendors on your wedding day to make it an amazing experience.

How do you work with photographers? What is your philosophy when working with photographers?

The photographer is in charge, they have ONE chance to capture the moments. I have a blog post where I show the backs of videographers who have walked right down the aisle with the bride to where the photographer wasn’t able to get the father passing off the bride to the groom. This is why all your vendors need to work together.

Do you have backup equipment?

Yes, we have backup cameras we bring just in case. Our equipment is under a year old and I’m always updating.

How will you be dressed?

We come dressed professionally in a collared shirt and slacks.

Do you provide USB? Digital delivery?

Currently, you get a beautiful customized USB of all the edits. We’re working on streaming and online delivery. I’ll update this when things change.

Do you provide color correcting?

We color correct most of our documentary footage. We completely color correct the short film to optimize for web viewing.

Do I get to make changes after I receive the video?

We typically allow a couple changes if they’re necessary. For example, if there’s a person you don’t want in the film or if there’s a spelling error. If you have a list of changes we charge $100 per hour for editing. 99.8% of our weddings never need any changes done.

After the wedding, when will I receive my film?

It takes up to 3 months to get your wedding film.

Do you have liability insurance?

Yes, we do have liability insurance. All professionals should! I’m a  licensed drone pilot and carry insurance on my drone.

How much is your deposit and when is a payment due?

Our deposit is currently $200 but September 1st that will be raised to $500.

Do you have a written contract?

Yes and you can sign it online or print it from online. Save a tree and do everything digitally!

Are you a licensed drone pilot?

Yes, I am a licensed drone pilot. Why does this matter? If something was to go wrong and the drone crashed or accidentally ran into someone if you’re not a commercially licensed pilot insurance would not cover the expenses.
