HOW IT WORKS?
Here’s our step-by-step guide to experiencing our wedding videography services:
99.9% of bookings start with an enquiry to check if I’m available on a given date and to know prices for a given event. An email or quick phone call is all that’s needed.
2. Booking (Contract & Deposit)
To make things clear and legal, I issue a contract for us to sign. It’s a couple of pages long and outlines the way I work, what you should expect (and what I should expect from you) and what you can hold me accountable for.
A few months before the wedding, as soon as the schedule takes a fairly solid shape, I meet with my couples over personally or via video call (Skype, WhatsApp or FaceTime). We get to know each other, talk through the schedule and answer important questions.
4. Wedding Day
As a documentary videographer, I don’t setup shots nor do I use shortlists. To me, there are very few “must film“ items. I film what makes storytelling sense in your particular wedding. Of course, all the important bits (ceremony, speeches, first dance, etc are always filmed). I will interact very little with you throughout the day as I’ll be focused gathering content.
5. Post Wedding; Editing and Delivery
After the wedding, whilst I am generally eager to get my hands on the footage and start editing, a backlog starts to form around June. To make sure things are fair, I deliver films in the order of shooting. When it comes to editing, video takes a lot longer than photography. Whilst we have photographers delivering weddings in two or three days of shooting, videographers have a tougher deal. As a rule of thumb, it generally takes us 1 to 1.5 hours of editing per hour of film. And that’s only on the wedding film; it excludes the trailer, the full ceremony and the full speeches.
