frequently asked questions
01. DO YOU TRAVEL / WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?
I love to film outside of my normal locations any chance I get! I am based out of Utah County & Las Vegas (meaning my current home is Utah but my roots and family are Las Vegas). If your wedding isn't within 100 miles of those spots you'll need a travel fee. Because I don't want you paying more than you have to, I will need some wedding details to come up with a custom travel fee for you which will be in addition to the package you choose. I'll take this along with your deposit to start booking. Whenever I travel I am flooded with inspiration, so if you fall into this category you're in luck!
02. WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
Weddings: eight to ten weeks is standard for me. Inspiration comes in waves and so does a busy wedding season. The edit you'll watch back for years to come is something that I don't want to rush through. Each detail and step of the process is important to me.
Brand work: the short answer is that it depends! Turnaround time can be in as little as one week with clear communication and planning. More detailed and elaborate projects such as interviews and "behind the brand" stories may take up to 5 weeks.
(I promise that it is worth the wait!)
03. DO YOU OFFER DRONE FOOTAGE?
Yes! Drone footage is an add on to whichever package you choose. This is because I often have to come early to the venue or stay late to get the right shots. If I am traveling I also have to check an additional bag. Please be mindful that I can't fly in poor weather conditions like rain, wind, and snow, and in some locations laws ban me from flying there. Contact me for more details on this!
04. WHO CHOOSES THE BACKGROUND MUSIC?
Music can completely change the feel of a video. Thats why it is so important for the selection to be a collaborative effort between myself and the couple. I want your video to emulate your style so naturally I’m open to your song suggestions. If you’d rather leave it all to me, that’s an option too. Five minute edits typically have two songs and three minute edits have one. We will work together throughout the process to make your vision come to life!
*copyrights on certain songs may prohibit them from being used, which unfortunately is out of my control.
05. WHAT IF I WANT A LONGER EDIT OR MORE COVERAGE THAN YOUR PACKAGES?
Let’s do it! My packages are outlines for what most couples have needed in my experience. Each wedding is unique, so are video needs. Email me to talk to me about what you have in mind.
06. DO YOU WORK ALONGSIDE PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Yes! You can expect this to be a smooth experience. Both your photographer and I have the same common goal: to help you remember your wedding in a beautiful way. I will get many of the same shots and poses as they do so that we are efficient as we collaborate, then will occasionally stepping in to give my own separate instruction.
07. WHAT IS THE SUPER8 FILM ADD ON?
I will film your wedding on my vintage camera! If this is your style, it adds such a unique and nostalgic element to your video. Mine was manufactured in 1964 and I use Kodak vision3 color negative film. This is then digitally developed and woven in with the digital camera footage in the final edit.
08. DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER?
Yes! My second shooters availability will be dependent on how far in advance you officially book, so I recommend mentioning that right off the bat if it's one of your needs. Adding a second shooter begins at $150 per hour plus travel (if applicable)
09. HOW DO I OFFICIALLY BOOK YOU?
Official booking is made through a deposit, paid travel fees (if applicable), and a signed contract. I will email you the contract along with a questionnaire to learn more about your day. I will invoice the deposit and travel fee through either Venmo or Pay-pal.
