I blend into the background and capture the big and little moments as they naturally unfold. I also pay attention to the little details that I see on the day. I don’t orchestrate any setups or get people to perform cheesy routines. It’s a relaxed, natural documentary style which films people at their best, having a great time and enjoying the wedding day. Discretion and unobtrusiveness are very important to how I work.
For my style, I borrow elements of both! It’s kind of a complicated answer so I have written up a little piece all about the differences between a wedding videographer and a cinematographer.
I strive to create a unique wedding film for all of my clients. On the wedding day, I get a good sense of whether a fast energetic or slower romantic vibe will best suit the couple. This involves editing the footage to appropriate music. I will choose a pace of storytelling that just feels right. It might sound like a cliche, but every wedding is different.
No, unfortunately not. Before editing begins, I select appropriate licensed music which best tells your story. The task of selecting music which has the right pace and mood and then editing this to the video footage is an important part of the overall creative process. Due to music copyright laws, we cannot use unlicensed music or songs for your wedding video. This is still the case even if the video is strictly for your own personal use. The licensing fees for the tracks used are included in the pricing.
The usual turnaround time is usually anywhere from 12 to 16 weeks. During busier periods, it may take slightly longer. Editing can take a long time and we want to achieve perfection. Couples are always informed when their wedding films are ready for viewing!
It’s important to maintain a low key footprint on the day. For this reason, small cameras are used which are of very high quality. Discreet audio recorders are used for the ceremony and speeches. You probably won’t notice equipment on the day.
Yes, we use Stripe to process payments. The majority of major credit and debit cards are accepted.
Super! The next step is to get back in touch to see if we still have your date available. You will then receive a link to a contract and the secure booking page where you can pay the required booking fee. Then your wedding date will be in the diary!
This is a good question and it’s also a complex one. It requires a lengthy answer and so we’ve created a helpful guide to wedding videography pricing to assist your research.
