YOUR LOVE STORY.
THE WAY IT SHOULD BE TOLD.
ACROSS THE BAY FILMS
How long are your films?
On average, our highlight films run about 5 minutes long. We feel five minutes is the perfect amount of time to keep your attention and to display some of the best parts of your awesome day! Our wedding documentaries run between 45-60minutes and our teasers are up to a minute long.
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.
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 so that your day goes on without a hitch.
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 seamlessly 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. We prefer to be candid and organic to get the most authentic YOU.
How much should I expect to pay for you to shoot our wedding?
Our wedding package starts at $3000. And of course, we offer add-ons to make this package just to your liking.
Our elopement package starts at $2300.
