Frequently Asked Questions

How long are your films?

On average, our highlight films run between 4-7 minutes. Our wedding documentaries run between 45-60minutes and our teasers are up to a minute long. We also offer separate ceremony and speeches films. 

How much should I expect to pay for you to shoot our wedding?

Can I choose the music for my wedding?

The speed of progress throughout the film is very important. This is why we choose the music. Some songs may sound great to you, but they may not translate with the film or they may throw off the pace of the film as well. The music sets the entire mood, so we carefully choose songs that build and and create the perfect ambiance.

Also, we license all of the music we use. We don't want to get into a heated (monetary $$$$) battle with a mainstream artist for using their song(s) without a license.  

Our wedding and elopement packages start at $2900. On average couples spend $3700, but it all depends on what add ons you want.  

How well do you work with photographers?

We love our fellow vendors! They are our biggest fans! As soon as you book us, we get in touch with the photographer and introduce ourselves. We keep in touch during planning in order to work seamlessly throughout your day. 

At your wedding, we work as a team and feed off each others' ideas. We let the creative juices flow as a unit and make your day flow as seamless as possible.

Do you pose your couples throughout the wedding?

We don't like posing our couples because it doesn't look great on film. We want the experience to be as unique and wonderful as you are, and by adding certain elements such as movement, minimal direction, and direct intent to the shot, we can accomplish this. Candid, documentary, style suits us best. 

How long does it take to get the final product and do you or another company edit?

Typically it takes about 3 to 4 months (sometimes much sooner) to complete and deliver our final product. It depends on how many weddings we have during that specific time.  All films are processed and edited in-house in the order we receive them. To keep our vision consistent and clear, we do not outsource our edits.
