Answers to commonly asked questions
How do your packages work?
Great Question. We start each package with an awesome team to video your day using Grade A Gear and Lenses. That's standard for each package. After that the packages vary in 3 ways (for the most part): 1) time spent covering your day, 2) length of highlight film you get, 3) the cost of the package. We would be happy to explain the packages in greater detail or create a custom package for your specific needs.
Do you travel?
We are available for travel nationwide and are presently working with couples from all over the United States.
What are the costs associated with travel?
For weddings outside greater Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City an over-night is required and the costs associated with this travel varies, depending on the location. Usually its the cost of a hotel and gas money but sometimes we need plane. We would be happy to look into it for you! It may be more affordable then you would expect.
Have you shot my ceremony or reception venue before?
Maybe, maybe not but being at a new venue is awesome because everything is seen with a fresh pair of eyes. Coming back to a familiar venue is cool too because we know what to expect and challenge ourselves to elevate the game. Either way, we are going to do a great job or die trying.
Will you be shooting any other weddings the weekend of my wedding?
We will usually film 2 weddings a weekend. 3 is rare. 4 or more isn't happening! We have back-ups for our back-ups. Gotta be prepared when it comes to one of the most important days in a couples life!
How long does it take to finish my wedding video?
On average it takes us two to three months to finish a film, beating most of our competitors completion time of 4 to 6 months (and even a year is not unheard of according to some of the feedback we get). We have taken longer then 90 days but this is usually during peak parts of the season. 90% of our films are edited within 90 days.
Do you incorporate audio i.e., vows, toasts, etc.) into our wedding videos?
Most definitely! Great videos need dialogue to enhance the story. In a typical wedding we will use as many as 3 different methods to capture the best audio of your day: 1) the on-board microphones we have for our cameras, 2) Wireless & Wired microphones and, 3) digital recorders used to tap into soundboards. All three can be mixed to create the most realistic sound recreation for our films. It takes longer but sounds better!
How do you choose music?
We don't choose music, you choose music! It's your film so it should be your soundtrack! We are happy to help and guide you if you need help. We also reserve the right to veto any really bad music choices.
How do you typically dress?
Comfortable but presentable. We can really dress up too if need be.
Do you carry insurance?
Yes, we carry both general and liability insurance.
What are the payment plans that you offer?
You can split the balance of your package into 4 equal monthly payments.
Are there any other questions I should be asking?
Not sure but we do get this question often. Every couple is different and will have different needs. The best thing is to set up some time to chat with us. During our chat, as we answer questions for you, new questions that you didn't think of before may come up. We would love the opportunity to get to know you too!
