The Short Story (Required for Weddings)
A 2-4 minute cinematic edit including high definition footage, quality audio, and a romantic soundtrack incorporating:
Venue footage to capture the beauty of the location and decorations, including aerial coverage (drone flight dependent on venue & weather restrictions)
Brief 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
Two story tellers (videographers) to capture and highlight all the best moments
Post ceremony couple session (similar to what photographers do)
Early portions of the reception
Your Story, Your Way
(Optional 'A La Carte'Add-On Packages)
the 'Wedding Party' Preparations
This popular add on captures both of the wedding parties important pre-ceremony preparations and activities. This element adds a bit more backstory, depth, and additional time to your story
The First Look (Day of Wedding)
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 short story; adding more time to the film as well
This option elevates the storytelling as we record audio of your vows and incorporate portions into the short story. We will plug into the DJ's system and also use lavalier microphones on the couple. Additionally, we will provide a separate audio file for you to listen to the vows in their entirety.
For this selection we professionally record audio of your toasts and may incorporate portions into your video. Miss a speech or want to relive it? We will give you the unedited copies of the best speech footage and audio we have available!
the Party Package
This addition transitions the intimate story of the ceremony and bridals into an upbeat celebratory vibe that showcases the excitement and atmosphere of your reception. We stay longer and provide the necessary lighting (not party lights) to capture dancing, fun, and liveliness of the celebration. This option adds at least an additional minute to your short story.
the Couples Departure
For this option, we stay to the end of your event and capture your special farewell, which adds a happily ever after ending to your film
the Wedding 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 "Fomo" Film
Have a 'Fear Of Missing Out' on all your wedding day moments? Our FOMO option is essentially an unedited (no soundtrack either) 'home movie' style video of everything we shot. We drag all of our footage (potentially hours worth, depending on package selections) chronologically into our editing timeline.
The Pre-Wedding Day First Look & Bridal Session
This two to three hour detailed bridal session, including first look and couples poses, at an alternative (different from your wedding day) outdoor location is a perfect stand alone edit to show at the wedding (if it's done a few weeks prior to the wedding) or to have as an addition to your Short Story.
