We consider your wedding unique
There's no one size fits all package for wedding videos. Some couples want our Full Video to watch their wedding play like a movie (with credits and outtakes) while other couples are only interested in a Highlight Video and Teaser. Some couples want 2 wedding videographers and other couples only need 1 wedding videographer. For this reason, we prefer to customize every package we offer to fit the type of wedding videography package that you're looking for exactly! So, please fill out our contact form (at the bottom of our Home Page) with as much information as possible to help us determine a couple options to create wedding videos that will allow you to relive your day forever! If you're just looking for a budget range, we can tell you that most couples who hire us spend between $3,500-$4,750 for a full day of video coverage but we can customize packages for smaller weddings/elopements or we can customize larger packages that allow us to be your paparazzi for the entire weekend!!
To help you understand the type of wedding videos we make and everything that we include in all of the packages we offer, please read through the information below. When you contact us let us, know which edits you're most interested in as well as which portions of the day are the most important for you to see in your video!
Descriptions for the edited videos we offer:
-Full Length Video
One of the biggest things that sets us apart from most current videographers is that we offer a Full Video. This video gives you with the opportunity to watch all of the events that happen during your wedding day in their entirety in a long-form video that you watch like a movie, complete with a credit roll at the end and outtakes of the most funny candid moments that take place throughout the day. Most current wedding videographers only offer a 20 minute version for their Feature Length Video and a Ceremony Only edit. Our Full Length Videos are typically 45-60 minutes for 4-6 hours of coverage and 60-120 minutes for 7-10 hours of coverage. The amount of time varies depending on the length of your ceremony, speeches and other main events because you'll be watching them in their entirety, edited to give you the best shots from two or more camera angles. The other portions of the day (ie. Getting Ready, Photo Session, Decorations, Mingling, Open Dancefloor, etc.) are edited into montages throughout the video and set to a soundtrack of your choice. Our Full Videos are more personal, which is why we don't share them publicly. So, contact us to see a sample of these videos.
Highlight videos are designed to be shared with your family and friends and are the one video that most people will watch a lot more often than every anniversary. Depending on the amount of video coverage, the Highlight Videos we create normally last 7-12 minutes and include audio from your vows, speeches and letters that you write to each other. The Highlight Video is delivered through a link online that will allow you to download, watch and share it. To help make your story more compelling and personal, we suggest that you write your own vows or letters to each other. We do understand that some people are more private and/or too shy to do something like that so if you're not comfortable with writing something don't worry, we will still be able to tell your story by using great music and all of the special moments you shared with each other and your guests on your wedding day. We use Vimeo and Mediazilla to host our Highlight Videos and with most video hosting websites, it is illegal to upload videos without a proper music license. To stay compliant, we pick the music used for the Highlight Video from a few different music libraries based on the style of music you selected to be used during your wedding day or something that just matches the flow and style of your unique wedding video. The cost for licensing the music is included with every package we customize.
-Facebook & Instagram Wedding Teaser
We realize that sharing something quickly, while people are still excited and talking about your wedding, is important. So, we include a 60 second teaser video of your wedding day with several of our packages, which is delivered through Facebook & Instagram within 3 days of the wedding.
-Ceremony & Speeches Edit
Let's face it, the portions of your wedding day that are the most important to almost every couple we've worked with are the Ceremony & Speeches. So, we include them in their entirety with just about every package we offer. We use 2-3 cameras for all wedding ceremonies and 2-3 cameras for the speeches as well as professional audio recording devices. So, we edit these videos to give you the best angles and audio of your entire ceremony and speeches/toasts.
All Video Packages Include:
-Minimum of Two Video Cameras
It is essential to have more than one camera angle for the main events on your wedding day! If the view from one camera gets obscured for a moment by a photographer or guest, we always have another angle to work with. We provide 2-3 camera angles for all of the major events that take place on your wedding day. The more footage we have to work with, the better your video will be.
-Audio Recorders with Lapel/Lav Microphones
Clear audio is very important to us and should be to you as well! We provide two audio recorders and lapel mics, which we put on the groom and officiant during the ceremony to ensure that you are able to hear all of the important words spoken during your ceremony. For speeches/toasts during the reception we connect an audio recorder to the DJ's soundboard to make sure that we capture clear audio of anyone who speaks into the microphone.
We try to use natural light as much as possible but there are some moments during the reception when there's just not enough natural light to keep the quality consistent, no matter how good your camera is. In those instances we use 1-2 LED panels on stands when the natural light is dim. These lights are elevated high enough to not shine directly into the eyes of you or your guests and small enough to be discreet.
-Drone Footage (Weather & Location permitting)
We love to use our drone to capture aerial footage of the venue(s) as well as the city or region your wedding is taking place in. The only thing that will prevent us from using it is the weather or a no-fly zone.
