We are natural storytellers. We love to capture wedding days and join in the fun!
The day goes by SO fast! It’s a blur afterwards. Video captures the sights AND sounds of the day and the emotion in a way photography alone cannot – the vows, toasts, and the songs! It’s one of the few days in your life where everyone important to you is there for a celebration – some will not be around later in your lives and video is a great way to have that memory!
Packages and pricing are listed and are a good approximation, but is contingent on location of wedding (travel) and coverage needed for the wedding. Reach out for more exact pricing.
The current trend over the past decade is for generally 5-7 minute trailers and raw files with prices ranging from $3000 – $7000 with cinematic feel. They are very beautiful, but do tend to be very formulaic. This is not us.
We’re new school and old school. Our video highlights blog is unique even throughout the United States. We’re old school in that we offer an edited version of more complete events of your day, instead of just snippets in a trailer with raw files. Our behind-the-scenes, making of the day, Candid Video Extras segment is hugely popular and it’s one of the best things we do.
We don’t go by hours. We go by coverage of events for the day. This works to your benefit. If things are running behind on the day, we’re not asking you for overtime charges on your wedding day.
If you don’t see something that fits or want to tweak our packages or create your own, we’ll happily customize for you!
Getting great audio for the ceremony for your vows with a lavalier microphone and the toasts at the reception taking a direct feed from the DJ’s board. Check out samples on our blog for audio quality.
Whatever you prefer, however, we recommend and most people want ceremony and major events at the reception in the entirety. Includes getting ready coverage if opted, photo shoot recap to song, and some general dancing – running time 1 ½ hours to 2 hours.
For raw files a wedding can have between 150 and 250 raw files simply numbered. They are varying lengths and not user friendly for viewing. As a final product we don’t recommend, but it’s better than not having anything. Edited files are combining multiple cameras and edited version of events in their entirety and is a file version of disc delivery and are easier to view.
With us generally no. However, if you’re wedding is in downtown Philly or with Catholic ceremonies with far away getting ready locations we may need to discuss further.
Great. We defer to them and workaround what they’re doing. The key is day-of-communication. Photographers by and large love working with us.
1/3 with contract to book, 1/3 on or before the wedding day, and final 1/3 when your final product is ready after the wedding.
We are as prepared as well as we can possibly be. We have back-up videographers (with TV News & Wedding experience). We also have back-up cameras and microphones, as well as dual, back-up recording. You can never eliminate every scenario, but we do everything we possibly can to prepare for come what may.
Highlights are generally a day or two, but definitely within a week and edited video is within 6-8 weeks.
