Who will film and edit my story?
I don’t outsource any of my work, so if you choose me for your film, I’ll be the person filming you on the day(s) and I’ll edit and craft the final film in its entirety.
What is included in the package?
The short answer is every wedding is different, so it’s best to get in touch and give me as much information about your plans as possible. There’s a difference between an elopement for two people close to home, a traditional wedding and a 3 day destination wedding. However, all of my packages include a pre wedding shoot where we take a couple of hours to a day to go somewhere epic and film you in a place away from the formality of the wedding day. This provides a contrast in the film from the wedding day, showing you in a different light and providing a rich contrast within the film.
For some people this could be a few months or weeks before the wedding, for others a few days before the wedding (if its a destination wedding) and some take place after the wedding. The timing doesn’t really matter to me, but you’ll receive your final film quicker if the pre shoot is before the wedding.
How long are you with us on our wedding day?
I’ll be there from the preparations in the morning to the dancing, and everything in between. Don’t worry if you’re not comfortable with me filming the preparations, I won’t start until you are comfortable. I can always film the venue and surroundings in the meantime. If you want me there the day before for the set up and preparations, or the day after if you’re having another get together, I can add that into the package and tailor it for your unique circumstances.
What do I receive after the wedding?
You’ll receive your wedding film within 8 weeks from the end of filming, and the films you receive will depend on the package you choose. All the packages include a 3 – 5 minute highlights film (these are the films you see on my site). You can then add on an extended highlights film (20 – 25 minutes), the full ceremony (with high quality audio), the speeches (with high quality audio) and an extra edit of the dancing in the evening. These are all optional, so it’s best to get in touch for more details!
What type of cameras do you use?
For the whole day, I film handheld with DSLR cameras. If you google them, you’ll see they are very small and discrete, allowing me to blend in and capture natural moments. Everything is filmed in HD.
