The Short Story (Required for Elopements)
A 2-3 minute cinematic edit including high definition footage, quality audio, and a romantic soundtrack incorporating:
Venue footage to capture the beauty of the location, including aerial coverage (drone flight dependent on venue & weather restrictions)
Couple pre-ceremony preparations.
Love story interviews: Individually sit down with us prior to the ceremony to candidly answer a few questions; portions will be intertwined into the film
One story teller (videographer) to capture and highlight the best moments
Post (or Pre) ceremony couple session (similar to what photographers do)
Early portions of the reception if applicable
Your Story, Your Way
(Optional 'A La Carte'Add-On Packages)
The First Look (Day of elopement)
This is a great opportunity for the couple to share a private moment before the ceremony, and the footage is a welcome addition to the film; adding time as well
This option elevates the storytelling as we professionally record audio of your vows, and incorporate portions into your video. Additionally, we give you the unedited audio recording (to the corresponding video when able).
the Elopement Trailer
This 60 second independent film edit is perfect for sharing the highlights of your big day on time restrictive social media sites. We will provide a different soundtrack than your main video
the Special Requests
We want to tell your story, your way; if you have special requests or additions in mind that aren't listed in one of our add ons, contact us and we will include a quote in the invoice proposal. Also, if you have a specific shot, pose or angle you've seen and want, let us know
The Just Film Us
Want to tell, aka edit, your own story? Let us do the recording and simply transfer the footage to you at the end of the event to do with what you like!
This is the only item that does not require "the Short Story" package be selected. For this option, we charge by the hour on the day of the event, including 30 minute set up time.
