+ Do you work well with photographers?
It's kindof sad that this has to be asked, but... of course. About 80% of our wedding inquires are referrals from photographers we've worked with in the past, if that says anything.
+ What's your setup like?
I believe that subtlety is a lost art form. While it would be neat to have a huge production crew, with tons of fancy camera equipment, I like to keep things simple — one backpack-full of gear, and a few small accessories. That way, the focus stays on you and your darling fiancé and I'm not making a mess of your venue.
+ So tell me about drones.
It's true, we do fly drones. We're insured and ready to make your wedding look incredible, from above. However, there are a few things to make note of: Per FAA regulations, we aren't able to fly anywhere near airports and certain landmarks; we always comply with venue rules w/ drones; and, if it's looking like it'll rain, we won't be able to fly. We always choose safe over awesome.
+ How long are your films?
Our highlight films range from 3 - 6 minutes. We've found that this is the sweet spot for visually telling a story in the most captivating way, while still retaining a cinematic feel.
+ What if I really want a longer film?
We try to be open-minded and accomodating to what our couples want, including footage of as many details and moments from their wedding day as we can. However, we also know that compromises lead to more compromises... so, if you're looking for anything close to a documentary edit, I may not be the right videographer for you.
+ How do you approach choosing music?
As a musician of over 10 years, I know that music is the driving force behind anything that makes people feel deeply, which makes it absolutely crucial to be meticulous in selection. Most times, multiple hours are spent choosing the perfect song for a film, as every film is different. This is also why the length of highlight film varies drastically — the perfect song may be 5:25, or it may be 3:10.
+ How long until we receive the film?
We aim to deliver films in 3 - 6 months from your wedding date.
+ Where do we watch the film?
We upload all of our films to Vimeo and then embed them to a short blog post with some writing, screenshots, and links to all of your wedding's suppliers.
+ Do you offer revisions?
I do my absolute best to deliver a film that will knock your socks off with the very first draft. However, if you're deeply unpleased with something, at my sole discression, I'm willing to make very minor adjustments (take out / add a clip of your grandma, etc.) — if more major adjustments are requested, our re-editing fee of $150/hr will be applied.
+ What are your film inspirations?
Firstly, I believe that there's something just spectacularly whimsical about Wes Anderson's style of storytelling — "Moonrise Kingdom" is one of my absolute favorites. Furthermore, J.J. Abrams' use of light is jaw-dropping, Christopher Nolan hits you in the brain feels, and let's be real... Pixar movies are the best movies, hands down.
+ Do you keep backups?
We ensure safe local storage of your wedding footage for up to a year — if you're the nervous type, you may seek to purchase the Home Video Edit for your own personal collection. Please inquire for more details.
