Frequently Asked Questions
yes i know that this is lengthy but i promise--it's worth the read!
California, New York AND Minnesota?? Where are you based out of??
Total nomads, I know! We currently live in Minnesota part-time in an actual house(!) after 2.5 years on the road in our van. We are constantly traveling to California & New York, and at times are spending 4-6 weeks in our van in California as we film weddings during busy season. We plan to make a big move to New York City in 2020, so we love when clients book us to shoot in our soon-to-be home (did I mention no travel fees? Keep reading!)
Do you have any added travel fees?
There are currently no additional travel fees for weddings in California, Minnesota, or New York!
Please include when and where your wedding will take place on our Booking Form, and we can let you know if your location requires additional travel fees.
How long will my film edits take to complete?
Editing video is a lot of work and time, and we never want to rush the process—we deliver our films typically between 3-5 months and we promise that the wait is worth it <3
What's your filming style day of? Are you going to be all up in our faces?
Our mission is to be super stealthy ninjas! My two favorite compliments are “Our wedding film made me cry!” and “We didn’t even realize you were there!” We literally hate when photographers and videographers are in your face the whole time, but especially during the ceremony. That’s why we have super high quality zoom lenses :)
Can I use my favorite song in the video? Can I choose the music?
We have to follow copyright laws (because no one likes jail or $500,000 fines), so some popular songs are restricted. We license our music from amazing catalogs of high quality music and we always chat with our clients about their favorite music genres & likes/dislikes to help guide us to songs they will love. While we typically select the music for each film ourselves, if choosing music is very important to you, we can definitely chat & send over the catalogs so you can do so!
Are you able to work with our budget? Do you have payment plans available?
I’m all about transparency when it comes to scary money talks- I was a bride on a budget once, too! We always try to be flexible and accommodating of budgets, so reach out and we can talk through everything and see what we can do! I promise we don’t bite and are very nice people:)
We also offer payment plans as well, which has been helpful for a lot of our couples.
Here are a few other creative ways to work within a budget:
- Wait to order your ceremony or reception films until after the wedding (you can order these up to 6 months post-wedding!)
- If you have your wedding during low season (December- February), on a weekday (Monday- Friday), or book us less than 3 months out (if we happen to have a free day, we might be able to make it work!).
