About our prices

 

Some wedding-video businesses offer cheap prices by booking a massive number of weddings and contracting them out to different filmmakers. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to ensure consistent quality.

We take a different approach, committing to a limited number of weddings each year and guaranteeing that we (Mary and Myles) will be your filmmakers.

We bring technical chops from more than a decade of experience making films for brands like Google and Startup Weekend through our other video-production company Forward Films.

More than that, though, we give so many damns about making your wedding video the best it can be. We couldn’t sleep at night if we didn’t do your big day right.

Frequently asked questions 

 

Filming questions


What’s your filming approach?

We’re documentarians at heart who are happiest capturing real-time emotions. Our main goal is for you to enjoy the hell out of your wedding day and forget that we’re even filming. That means you’ll see us constantly buzzing around in the background while always respecting your event.

Of course, we’ll direct a few cinematic portraits if you’d like (and we’re armed with tricks to combat awkward posing and make you look naturally fab), but mostly we’ll capture you lost in unscripted moments with friends and family. Isn’t that your best look anyway?


What kind of equipment do you use?

Our gear includes multiple Sony Alpha cameras and lenses to capture any scene, a drone for breathtaking birds-eye shots, and a motorized stabilizer that produces smooth, dream-like footage.

We also bring lights that flatter faces and make dance floors look magical, as well as a suite of stealthy microphones to record clear audio of your vows, speeches, and priceless impromptu moments.


Do you have liability insurance?

Of course, and we’re happy to provide your other vendors with this information.


Will you step on my photographer’s toes?

No way! We’re only inspired by working with talented photographers, and we reach out to them beforehand to see how we can help each other.


Editing questions


What’s your EDITING TURNAROUND?

We always strive to finish your video within 3 weeks, but we might need a little longer during busy months.


Can we choose our video’s music?

Absolutely. By uploading videos to YouTube, we’re able to pay to use your favorite songs through occasional ads. #winwin


How will you deliver our video?

We’ll send your video to you as a downloadable file in case the internet ever explodes and as easy-to-share links on YouTube, social media, and our blog.


Planning questions


Can we meet before our wedding?

You bet! We’ll arrange a no-strings-attached video chat before you book. This lets us get to know you, learn what you’re looking for in a video, and answer any questions.

After booking, we’ll check in IRL or digitally to discuss logistics, music, most-wanted shots, and anything else you’d like us to know.


Will you attend our rehearsal?

You best believe we’ll be at your rehearsal taking lots of notes. We love being as prepared as possible.


Do we need to provide you with meals?

Couples who feed us hold a special place in our hearts, but we understand this isn’t always possible. Just let us know in advance.


Booking questions


How does booking work?

All we need is a signed contract and a 50% deposit to secure your date on our calendar. Both of these can be done online. The remaining 50% is due 2 weeks before your big day.


How do I start my booking?

Fill out this little form, and we’ll follow up within 72 hours to schedule video chat or call to get to know you and answer any questions. There’s absolutely no obligation.


Other questions?

We’d be happy to answer them. Give us a holler.
