1. What is a Highlight film/video?
A highlight film is a short film with all of the best moments of your day that help tell your story. It typically includes all key moments, but if something did not make it in we do offer raw footage as an add-on!
2. What is an archival edit?
The archival edit is a video of all the moments from the day combined. Similarly to raw footage but combined into one or multiple videos.
3. What is a Wedding Feature Film?
The highlight film is something that if you wanted to show a friend, family member, social media - some of the best moments from the wedding. A wedding film is a longer form video which would be something that you play during the holidays or an anniversary where you want to sit down, pop some popcorn and relive it!
4. What is ‘Raw Footage’?
Raw Footage are all of the individual clips taken from the camera, straight out of camera. This is offered as an add-on!
5. Do you back up our footage?
Yep! emergencies happen, and we guarantee that we will have your footage for at least three months after delivering your wedding film!
6. Do you choose the music? Can I help you?
We definitely want the best film for you so we’d love any input on genres that you love and don’t love. However we choose the music for multiple reasons – the first and foremost being pacing. The song choice helps create a cohesive film. While some songs are great, others may not be the best choice for a wedding film. Additionally, we license all of the music we use. It is illegal to use any song without first purchasing a license. With mainstream music, this can be very expensive.
7. How does your approach from a highlight film to a feature films differ?
The approach to filming a feature film to a highlight film is ironically the same - Its simply about the edit! This is because we want to provide the best experience possible and take a documentarian approach rather than a completely creative approach.
8. Do you film creatively or documentarian?
We do both! However we place an emphasis on the documentarian approach, which is much more important long term! By that we mean, we film everything! We fully document the ceremony, speeches/toasts, dances, private letter/vow reading, first look, so that we can do a longer edit any time upon request!
9. Do you pose of direct us?
A mixture of both! For most parts of the day, we take a documentary approach – a majority of events are captured candidly. However, there are parts of the day where we will be very intentional with every detail of the shot, such as the composition, lighting, and movement.
10. How do you move throughout the day?
In the beginning we are very close and intimate and then as the day progresses, you are on the stage and in front of everyone - we try to blend into the crowd and shadows!
11. How much to book our date?
25% is due to secure the date upon signing of the agreement!
12. When is final payment due?
Final payment is due 30 days before the wedding, and I will confirm with you two weeks before the wedding date!
13. How are photos/videos delivered?
They are delivered, through a cloud/drive for viewing, but physical copies will be mailed to your address!
