Wedding videography FAQ's
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES AND PACKAGES?
Elopement Collections begin at $1500 and Wedding Collections begin at $2500. Your package can be customized with several Add Ons or modified for budget. Contact us to see all our options!
WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT PLAN?
To reserve your date, we require a 30% deposit. The remainder of your package price will be due no later than one week before your wedding day.
HOW CAN I PAY?
We have accounts with various secure online payment services, including Stripe, Venmo and SquareCash. We also accept checks by mail, or if you are local, we would love to meet up with you to put a face to all the emails and to chat before the wedding day!
HOW SOON WILL I RECEIVE MY WEDDING FILMS?
A Social Teaser will be delivered within one week of the wedding dates, and Highlight Films will be delivered within 3 months! Depending on the wedding season, the delivery could be as soon as 6 weeks! All Documentary Films and Raw Footage can take up to 6 months, and will generally be delivered after your Highlight Film. This is due to the length of the video and the amount of footage that needs to be organized and compiled and colored to perfection so that you can enjoy a perfect final product for many years to come.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF? DO YOU TRAVEL?
We are a husband and wife team based out of Austin, Texas but are available to travel anywhere! For locations in Texas that are 50 miles outside of the zip code 78717, there is a travel fee based on mileage roundtrip (58 cents/mile per IRS Standards 2019). Overnight accommodations will also be requested for weddings over three hours away. We have specific Collections for U.S. Elopement & Destination Weddings. A custom package can be created for International Weddings.
CAN WE SUGGEST A SPECIFIC SONG OR TYPE OF MUSIC FOR OUR HIGHLIGHT FILM?
Absolutely! We'd love to hear what some of your favorite artists/songs are! We only use licensed music in our films, so we probably can't use your favorite Ed Sheeran song. However, we always take into consideration the musical taste of our clients. We use a website called Musicbed to license songs for our wedding films, and there is some pretty amazing stuff on there. We love to collaborate and can send you a list of songs on a curated playlist before we start the edit to make sure it is music you will want to hear and enjoy forever!
DO ALL YOUR FINAL FILMS TURN OUT THE SAME?
The short answer is no, but this is not a bad thing! Our goal is to create a video that authentically and beautifully represents the couple and their wedding day. We take into consideration every detail of the day from the venue, to the flowers, to the music choices and try to capture all those vibes in your Highlight Film. No two weddings or couple are the same, so each video should be as unique as possible!
What we never compromise on is excellent coverage and hard work. We show up fired up and don't stop until you make your grand exit. We make sure to be in the right place at the right time and have a questionnaire for every client to fill out to ensure we are on the same page and get the best capture possible!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR VIDEO STYLE?
One of our favorite life mottos is 'authenticity trumps cool every time' and that is exactly how we see our work. We want to make videos that last, not hindered by fads. We strive to make each video as personable and real as possible. Whoever the couple and whatever the wedding, we want people to watch our videos and see purpose and heart above all else.
HOW DO YOU WORK WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS?
We love to work with photographers! We understand that every photographer is hired to get excellent coverage just as we are. When we show up for a wedding, we immediately introduce ourselves and establish mutual respect and a teamwork mentality with all vendors involved! If we have the chance to get in touch with your hired photographer before the day of the wedding, we are always happy to do so. We don't do a lot of posing, as the photographers usually know what kind of shots they want to get and will do that for us. We communicate with them for the most part if we want to grab something specific, and work as quickly as possible to ensure the timeline is stuck to. All in all, we work to be as non-invasive and team-oriented as possible on the day of the wedding.
WHAT IF YOU AREN'T IN OUR BUDGET?
The number one regret we have heard from others about their wedding day is that they didn't invest in videography. We understand how expensive wedding days have become. And we by no means want to gouge you for money. We do believe that videography is an investment worth while, as very few things are left over when the day is all said and done, and your Wedding Film allows you to relive every moment that flew by and see all the hard work you put into your day. We also believe everyone deserves to have a Wedding Film, no matter their budget. So please don't hesitate to reach out to us to discuss your budget and we will see what we can do!
