Six to twelve months in advance is a perfect amount of time!

Our most popular by far is the "Gala" collection!

Yes! I make sure I film each and every wedding that we take on! There will be between 1-3 people and 1-3 cameras on wedding day!

We charge no travel fees!

All travel costs are already included in our collection pricing.

Each wedding footage folder is backed-up onto three secure and encrypted hard-drives, and two encrypted online cloud accounts. We keep the physical footage safely backed up, literally forever!

9. How long after the wedding will the couple receive the video? And how will the video be delivered?

You can expect to receive your wedding film teaser between 2-4 weeks after your wedding, and your full wedding film between 12-18 weeks!
