Q) What's the next step after emailing and contacting you?
A) The next step after texting and emailing would be to get together for some coffee to get to know each other and discuss your wedding in more detail. If we are unable to meet up because of distance or time, we can also FaceTime or talk over the phone. After we finish talking about your wedding and getting to know each other, you’ll have the chance to deposit if you like or take a little more time to think about it. The deposit is $400 and non-refundable.
Q) How many videographers will be at our wedding?
A) In order to film your wedding correctly, all of our packages include two videographers
Q) Is it possible to add 1-2 hours to the coverage? If so, what is the additional cost?
A) Yes, our coverage usually last about 8-10 hours of filming depending on the package, but if you would like to customize a package only to add coverage it is $100/HR to keep both videographers there.
Q) What is a wedding trailer? (aka wedding teaser)
A) A wedding trailer is a way for me to give you a quick sneak peek of what your wedding edit is looking like. It generally lasts about 30 seconds and does not include any critical moments of your day. This trailer usually comes out 2-3 months after your wedding. It’s great to share on social media and to remind your guest of the final highlight to come.
Q) What is a 4 Minute Highlight?
A) A four-minute highlight is the culmination of many editing hours which is generally finished 4-6 months after your wedding. This highlight is usually set to one song chosen by both of us drawn from themusicbed.com to follow copyright rules. The genre of the song can change, but it is generally set to a singer-songwriter, folk, country or pop song.
Q) Can we use popular music?
A) Preferably no. In order to comply with copyright rules and edit your video correctly, we would need an instrumental and standard track which I can only get from individual websites. If there’s a song that you are strongly set on, we may be able to choose that song, but that is something we can discuss over time.
Q) Where do you get your music and do we get to choose the song?
A) We draw all of our music from a website called the thmusicbed.com. Once your highlight is close to being finished I will send you 4 to 5 song options I feel go well with your wedding video. At that point, you will approve 1 or all songs, and then I move forward with your final edit. If you do not like any of the options, we go back to the drawing board and continue looking. My main goal is for both of you to love your song and wedding video.
Q) What is a 1 Minute Instagram Highlight?
A) A 1-minute highlight is a condensed version of your 4-minute highlight which shows lots of key moments of your wedding. Great to share on Instagram and other social media outlets. This highlight will also be finished 4-6 months after your wedding.
Q) What is a cinematic highlight?
A) A Cinematic Highlight is a longer highlight which is 7+ minutes set to, two ambient songs. It will have a lot of the same elements as your 4-minute highlight. However, it will have more substance from your ceremony and speeches. All of the in-depth techniques are used for this edit as well.
Q) What is a documentary edit?
A) The documentary edit is a more traditional wedding video that covers the majority of all important events such as, your ceremony, speeches, first dance, and more. This edit is usually 20-30 minutes and does not contain in-depth post-production techniques such as color correcting, color grading, etc. This file will be on your final flash drive
Q) How long does it take to finish our video?
A) I spend many hours editing over a period of 4-6 months to finish your video. As you saw in my sample videos, they are highly edited. I allow changes to the final video only if mistakes were made on our part.
Q) How much is your deposit? When do I pay you the remaining balance?
A) The deposit is $400 and non-refundable. The remaining balance must be paid four weeks before the wedding date unless discussed otherwise.
