Frequently Asked Questions

How do you work on the day?

 

Natural, real shots are my favourite! I set up as little as possible - this is because in my experience, as soon as you know a camera is watching you, you tense and lose yourself.  The best films come from moments when you aren't aware a camera is on you. I work alongside your photographer, remaining in the background and I just let you enjoy your day. 

Do you have a second shooter?

 

Currently I am a solo wedding videographer, but if this is something your day will require then it's certainly something we can look into.

Do you use a drone?

 

My main job throughout your wedding day is concentrating on you and creating a film that shows your personal story, with this in mind, I do not use a drone. However, I totally agree that aerial shots can make your wedding film look amazing therefore I outsource it from someone who specialises in aerial videography and who has the right insurance and licences to do so. If this is something you want to add to your package just let me know and I can contact them and get a quote for you.

Are you insured?

 

I am insured and always happy to show my documents when required. I would always encourage anyone to take out wedding insurance.

 

Do you use microphones?

 

To create your wedding film it's vital that we capture the best audio possible.  All of my cameras are equipped with microphones and I also use lapel microphones during your ceremony and speeches. These are very discreet sound recorders that will not interfere with any other equipment being used throughout the day.

 

 

How long is our wedding film going to be?

 

This is very dependant on the day but can range from 45 - 90 minutes long.  You also get a highlights film which is 3-5 minutes long.

Is there a contract?

 

There is, which is there to protect myself and you. This is sent via email and is asked to be signed and returned along with the 10% deposit to secure your wedding date. The remaining balance is then due 6 weeks before your wedding.

 

Should we feed you on the day?

 

If you would like to feed me that is very kind and I will be very grateful, however if that is not possible please let me know so I can bring my own food.

 

Do you do photography as well?

 

No I'm afraid not, however I can recommend a number of fantastic photographers who would be very happy to have a chat with you.

Can we meet?

 

Absolutely! It's incredibly important to feel comfortable with all the suppliers you book as they are very much a part of your day. I'm very happy to meet before, or FaceTime if a meeting isn't possible.

 

 

When will I receive my wedding film?

 

Post Production can take quite some time, there's a lot of editing involved and a lot of watching everything back multiple times. I aim to deliver your film by 12 weeks after your wedding date, however this can take longer. These things can't be rushed so please be patient and I promise it will be worth the wait!
