1. Can we view a sample video?
We would love for you to see a sample video! We typically do not send out previous wedding videos in order to protect the privacy of our previous clients. We would be glad for you to set up a time with us to view a previously filmed wedding DVD.
2. What is your travel range?
We are fairly open and flexible with travel. Our most common wedding areas include Rome, Athens, Sandersville, Barnesville, and Thomaston. We have filmed weddings in other areas including Griffin, Peachtree City, Warner Robins, Watkinsville, Roswell, Savannah, and at Lake Lanier. In some cases a travel costs may be included.
3. What is the typical expected delivery time?
We ask that you allow 6-8 weeks for delivery of the wedding DVD in order to maximize the quality of editing. On rare occasions, delivery may be closer to 10 weeks.
4. Can you film outdoor weddings?
Certainly! Please consider having an alternate indoor location in the event of uncooperative weather. Please also note that the orientation of the crowd and wedding party can sometimes cause problems if the cameras must film into direct sunlight. If using an outdoor area, try to incorporate shade as much as possible.
5. I would like to have a ceremony with only candle lights or low lighting – is this okay?
Honestly, no, it is not okay if you want a nice video. In order to maximize the quality of your video, we will need a substantial amount of light. We can film dark ceremonies, but quality in such situations tends to be compromised. We encourage brides to consider providing as much light as possible in order to preserve the quality of video memories for decades.
6. Do you remain stationary during the ceremony?
Yes. We do not typically move around at all during the ceremony. Once we are in place, we remain there until the ceremony ends. Too much movement is distracting in our opinion.
7. How many cameras do you use?
We typically use 2 cameras at the present time. We can increase this if you prefer (see packages and/or contact us for a quote).
8. Our relatives have a video camera – why should we pay a videographer?
Quality and experience go a long way in creating a memorable wedding video. We have never encountered anyone who regretted using a professional videographer. We have, on the other hand, encountered couples who regretted not hiring us to capture their special day. If you want Uncle Ralph to use his brand new Sony cam-corder, that’s fine: just ask him if he plans to use wireless microphones or any other professional equipment to help make your ceremony memorable and of high quality.
9. Who has the rights to the video/DVD once complete?
We retain the copyrights to the media we produce. This is flexible, but it requires additional
10. How do we get started?
Simply call or email us to check for date availability. We will get a good idea of what you want in a package and we will get back with you with an official quote. Package prices are just possible examples. Asking us how much we charge before telling us what you want is like asking the restaurant server to give you the bill before you order dinner. We will send you a contract with the specifics of your day. We ask for a $250 deposit to secure and book your date. The remainder will be due on your wedding day. We can accept PayPal payments in addition to checks or cash.
11. What other events do you film?
While weddings are our highest demand, we have also provided promotional videos for churches and para-church ministries. We have filmed proms, dance recitals, and graduations as well. Please contact us for additional information about any of your video needs.
