Frequently Asked Questions
What is your booking retainer?
When do I pay the remaining balance?
Our booking retainer is $1,500. This assures you that we will be present on your wedding date.
The remaining balance must be paid 30 days prior to the wedding date.
The retainer is non-refundable (inquire with any questions.)
Is your business insured?
We are fully insured with both business liability up to $1,000,000 and aerial liability (drone.)
How many videographers do we need?
For weddings of 50-200 people we recommend 2 videographers and 1 assistant and for larger weddings we would recommend a 4th videographer- this is to ensure that every single aspect of the wedding day is captured. There is no way to achieve the quality that you see in our videos with only 1 videographer.
How do you edit our video?
Your wedding will be edited into a 3-5 minute Trailer, and your Feature will be anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes long. If you have questions as to how this will look, please request a sample link.
In order to maintain style with all of my wedding videos, I personally edit all of them myself.
In booking with us you acknowledge you have seen our past work, our look, style & feel.
Can we buy the raw footage?
How long do you keep a master copy of our video on file?
Raw footage is available for transfer onto a hard drive for an additional fee of $500. I keep raw footage on file for six months after you have received your wedding video. After that time period, I cannot guarantee that I will have your wedding footage, aside from your Vimeo/Youtube links.
How do we select our music for the video(s)?
As a professional studio we must purchase and license any music that goes into our public videos.
If you would like your video to be public and shareable- this is non-negotiable.
For feature videos- any music can be used as long as the video is not posted online.
If you wish to have your Trailer video made private there is a flat fee of $500- our version of an NDA.
How long does it take to finish our video(s)?
You will have your finished video(s) within an estimated 6 months of making your song selection, often sooner. This is only an estimate- I cannot fully start the editing process until you have selected your music.
