When and where is the wedding?

We will need full names of the couple, the location of your ceremony, the location of the reception, the wedding date, and the start time. If we’ll be filming before the ceremony as well, we need to know where hair and makeup will be done, what the groomsmen will be up to, or any other places we may need to film that day.

General Questions

When and where is the wedding?

The location of your ceremony, the location of the reception, the wedding date, and the start time. Do you need us to film before the ceremony?

Where will hair and makeup be done?

What will the groomsmen be up to, or any other places you may need to film that day. 

Are there any planned special moments outside of the ceremony?

We need as much detail as possible. Is the couple going to have a first look? If so, will it be indoors or outdoors? Maybe the bridal party will all have a morning tea or breakfast you want captured. Groomsmen may take off for a round of golf or lounge around the pool.

Are there there are any big choreographed dances or any fun things planned for guests. I’ve seen everything from funny sketches and dances, surprise bands, Marine saber arches, to a family friend hand rolling cigars for guests.

Do you have any special items you want captured?

Will the bride have something old, new, borrowed, and blue? Will the groom be wearing his father’s cufflinks?

Are there any special decorations on the tables or in the entryway.

Do you have any other vendors booked?

I’m always most interested in knowing if the couple will have a DJ or band. 

Do any venues need a signed waiver or Certificate of Insurance?

Every church, chapel, synagogue, and venue has their own set of rules. Some require videographers to stay out of certain locations, others have a much more lenient policy. Many big churches ask you to sign a waiver, agreeing to their own church polices. Most often they will require you to use natural lighting, banning any video lights. Other rules are more focused on common sense, like not standing on furniture or pews. Many venues that solely host weddings will have strict rules — mostly because they’ve seen everything happen. If there is a rule, that rule was created for a reason. Some venues also require videographers to provide a Certificate of Insurance — or COI. This is a document issued by your insurance company proving that you have insurance.

General Questions

Do you want a custom quote or package deal? Do you have a set budget?

I am very straight forward with my pricing. There is nothing worse than dragging things out between multiple emails. To simplify the process, I offer different packages — each with their own starting cost

What type of coverage do you want?

This will tie into the package you choose. Do you want the ceremony and reception filmed, or do want us to shoot all day? 

Will you want us to follow the bride in the morning to capture hair and makeup, or do you also want to film the groom hanging out with the groomsmen? 

The type of coverage directly ties into the overall cost. 

What type of edit do you want?

Do you prefer a traditional straightforward and chronological wedding video, or do you want a modern cinematic storytelling edit.

What kind of music do you like?

By knowing the music you like, we can start looking for music for the edit. Is this a rustic country wedding or an all-night dance party? 

Is there an exit or getaway planned?

After the reception, does the couple have a grand exit?

We need to know what time the exit should take place — this will help us decide if we need to set up lights or not. We also need to know some smaller details like if the guests are tossing anything or holding sparklers. Is the couple driving off in a car, horse and carriage, just walking away? Knowing this will help us keep an eye out for the getaway vehicle.
