Why do you use the word cinematographers?
Because we are so much more than videographers! Your day will be beautiful and a lot of people could take video of it. But not everyone can tell your story and that’s what we do. We tell your wedding day story and essentially your love story. We combine visuals and audio to evoke all the emotions of your day.
What equipment do you use?
The best we can afford. Trust me, Stan has shopped more for his equipment than any girl for a closet of shoes! To film, our creative minds are our greatest equipment. In addition to that, Canon everything: Canon Cinema cameras, Canon DSLR cameras, Canon L lenses. You get the point! To edit, sticker covered Macbook Pro with Final Cut Pro X.
Can we get the raw footage… for an additional fee of course?
NO!…Well maybe. We really want to make sure you understand what “Raw Footage” is before we answer this question. During an average wedding, we capture 800-1000 clips. That means raw footage is 800-1000 individual files. Most of the files are 3-30 seconds in length. While we prefer not to part with our creative property, if you really want it, raw footage can be added to your complete wedding package for $500.
What do you wear?
Whatever you want… with restriction to speedos. Normally, our team sports black. At a wedding? Yes, it helps us blend into the background. However, we dress for the occasion, so if you prefer formal, we’ll pull out our suits.
How do you get along with photographers?
Well! We contact every photographer before the wedding to introduce ourselves and talk through any relevant details. Then, we continue the communication throughout the wedding day to ensure that we are both getting the essential shots.
What is a Same Day Edit?
Immediately following the ceremony, Stan enters “the zone” and creates a 3-5 minute video that features your venues, bride and groom prep, ceremony, creative session and first dance. The team sets up a projector and screen for this video to be played during the reception. While you watch your video, we capture your reaction.
What is the booking process?
Once you feel comfortable with your package, just send the signed contract and a 50% deposit to secure your day. Then, the remainder is due 2 weeks before your day.
