frequently asked questions
Where are you located? Are you willing to travel?
We are based out of Lynchburg, Virginia, but typically film in Charlottesville, Northern VA, Roanoke, and Richmond. However, we love traveling to new places and are available worldwide! The first 60 miles of travel are on us, and from there we charge $.54 per mile, which is based on the federal mileage rate. If travel will be over 2.5 hours one way, we request hotel accommodations as well.
How many cinematographers will be there to capture our wedding day?
There will always be two cinematographers there to capture your day. We are a husband and wife team and we have filmed almost every wedding together. If for some reason one of us couldn't be there, we have a wonderful network of skilled filmmakers that can help assist us on wedding days.
How will our final wedding film be delivered to us?
Your wedding film will be uploaded to Vimeo, making it easy to share with friends and family. Additionally, we will mail you a USB and DVD copy of your wedding film. Extra DVD copies can be made upon request.
When will we receive our wedding film?
Although turn-around times vary depending on the season, our typical turn-around during our busy wedding season is 2-4 months. We make sure that each wedding film gets the attention it deserves. Each 10-12 minute feature wedding film takes approximately 2-3 weeks of editing time.
Do you have a limit on how many weddings you take a year?
We usually take on a maximum of 20 weddings per year.
Will we notice you a lot throughout the day?
We take a very unobtrusive approach to filming weddings, and do everything we can not to distract from the special moments or bring attention to ourselves. Our cameras are no larger than your photographer's cameras, so no need to worry about huge rigs getting in the way of your guest's view!
Do you record the vows?
Absolutely! We understand that the vows are one of the most important parts of your day, so we wouldn't miss it!
Do you have liability insurance and a business license?
Yes! We have liability and equipment insurance, as well as a business license. Should your venue require proof of insurance or license, please let us know and we will send them a copy of insurance/license as soon as possible.
Is it possible to receive the full ceremony and/or speeches?
Definitely. You are able to add on both the full ceremony and full speeches from the reception to any of our packages. We are also willing to customize packages for you.
Do you have a limit on how many hours you film on a wedding day?
We are willing to film up to 12 hours during a wedding day. We will be there until we get all the footage we need to make your wedding film perfect! Typically this means we are there from the bridal party getting ready through your formal exit after the reception.
