Why should we have a wedding video?
You have put so much time, money, and effort into your wedding and then all of a sudden it is over. One of the biggest regrets from brides these days, is the fact that they didn’t invest in capturing their wedding on video. Either it wasn’t in the budget or it was something that wasn’t a priority during the planning process. A wedding film helps capture the whole day for you to relive each moment, each toast, and even the moments that you weren’t present for. Your video will allow your to WATCH the moments (not just see them) over and over again for many years to come.
Do you travel?
Absolutely! We love to travel and do it quite frequently! We actually travel quite a bit for weddings that are outside of the Kansas City area, not just for destination weddings.
If you are having a destination wedding then all the more reason to have a wedding video! Not everyone might be able to travel for your wedding unfortunately and having a full video of the wedding day will help those experience it that weren't fortunate enough to be there in person. Please contact us to talk about what it would look for us to travel for your big day!
Can I make an appointment to meet with you?
Certainly, fill out our contact form and we would love to set up a time to meet. If you aren’t from the Kansas City area not a problem at all - we will set up a time to do a video call with you!
“We would love to meet with you but we just don’t have the time. Are there any other options?”
We would love to meet with you before your wedding but it time doesn’t allow or if we are just too far away, we can handle everything from a distance. If you think about what you are wanting to accomplish from meeting, we can most likely achieve them remotely. For instance, if you are wanting to see more examples of our work or get a sense of who we are and talk more about what we offer then we can set up a video call (or just a normal phone call - we just like video because, well, that is what we do after all).
So it takes 3-4 Months to get my videos back, WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG?
After a typical wedding day where we are on location(s) 8 – 10 hours we’ll end up with 100-200 Gigabytes of footage, and if it is 4K is even more. That equates to around 5 -6 hours of continuous footage per camera, 400-600 video clips and 2-3 audio sources. So going through and organizing all of the footage, synching audio to the ceremony and each reception event, putting your wedding footage together to re-create your wedding day, sourcing music, color correction and grading all can take up to 40-60+ hours over the course of 3-6 months.
How far should we book in advance?
Typically 6-12 months in advance, but really as soon as you have a date. If you’re not the “plan way in the advance" type of guy or gal - no worries. Please feel free to check for our availability no matter how soon your wedding is. We've booked everything from 2 years to 2 weeks!
Will we be able to hear our vows? I’ve seen wedding videos where you can’t hear the bride and groom.
Yes. We use a lapel mic on the Groom to get the clearest, cleanest audio to hear everything you say to each other. That being said, the vows might not be put into each video that is made for the public to see. If this is something you are interested in having, let us know and we will put it in your film for you!
Will the bride, groom, and wedding attendants have to pose for the videographer?
Nope! We try our hardest to be invisible the day of your wedding. We try as hard as we can to stay out of the way and film the events as they occur naturally.
I already booked a photographer, is that a problem?
Absolutely not! We do our best work with photographers, not and any other vendor you may have. We are professional and do not value videography over photography and we try our best gets all the footage necessary to provide you with memories of your once in a lifetime experience.
My friends videographer was horrible, how are you different?
It is so important to mention what we DO NOT do. Unfortunately there are some companies who are not considerate of the fact that this is a day comprised of delicate and unrepeatable moments that you will remember for the rest of your life.
◦ We value your day over our shots. Meaning we will not ruin a moment to get the shot we need - we plan accordingly to get shot while at not disrupting your day
◦ We don't run around in desperate attempts to get footage (we plan our shoot very carefully).
◦ We don't get awkwardly close (we invest a great deal in the right lenses for the job).
◦ We don't leave until we have a solid body of work (even though our base package says 10 o'clock, if the party doesn't get started until later, then we stay until we have a healthy amount of reception celebration).
◦ We don't use lights (our cameras are quite capable of capturing low light footage) unless it is style choice and the lighting would be completely intentional. But 99% of the time we don’t and we would check with you before we did something that could be that distracting.
◦ We play nice. We try our absolute best to not have issues with other vendors.
◦ We are not going to be following you down the isle to get the shot
