frequently asked questions


Where are you located? Are you willing to travel?

We are based out of Lynchburg, Virginia, but love to travel! 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 which will include your wedding film and any other add-ons such as ceremony/toasts coverage. DVD copies can be purchased at $10 a copy. 

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. Crafting a wedding film takes time and we want to ensure that each wedding film gets the attention it deserves! 

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 large equipment getting in the way of your guest's views! 

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 speeches?

Of course! 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 typically film 8-10 hours on a wedding day, depending on the time of events. 

Why should I hire a wedding you for our wedding day?

We're so glad you asked! :) Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most important days of your lives. Our goal is to bring all of the joy, emotion, excitement, and love between you and your spouse to life through your wedding film. If someone were to tell you that there was a way to transport you back to all of the incredible moments from the most special day of your life, wouldn't you go for it? Well, there is a way! We aim to bring the spirit of your day back to life for you, so that every time you watch your wedding film, you are able to relive every perfect moment.
