What is your approach to photographing and filming a wedding day?
Our approach is purely candid storytelling, with very little direction. We prefer capturing the events of your day as they unfold naturally. In fact, many couples choose us for their wedding videography because our wedding films look natural and people don’t look posed.
Who chooses the music?
As filmmakers, having the creative freedom to choose the soundtrack to your wedding film is absolutely crucial to how we go about editing and telling your story. Music plays a huge part in setting the tone for the film, and our experienced editors know which track will fit best for your film. Just as you knew when he was “the one,” our editors know when the song is right. We haven’t had a single complaint about soundtracks so far!
However, if you absolutely have a specific taste in music or a specific song in mind, feel free to discuss this with us and we will try our best to work it out.
How much of a deposit do we put down in order to secure the date? And when’s the total amount due?
$600 CI ($750 US) non-refundable retainer due to reserve the date. Balance due prior or latest on the wedding date. Your date is not secured until the retainer is paid in full. The remainder balance is due 30 days before your wedding.
When will I receive my video?
We will do our best to deliver the final product within three months.
What does consecutive hour really mean?
Our hours of coverage are continuous. For example, we are contracted for 10 hours and our start time is 10:00, you have our unlimited coverage from then till 20:00.
How can I share my video with my friends and family?
We host your Cinematic Film online, so that friends and family across the globe can cherish in your big day. The online film is viewable in stunning high definition clarity, which means they’ll be able to see all the joyful tears and tender moments of your wedding
Do you have any advice or suggestion to help in the production of our film?
Absolutely we do!
- Optimize the breadth and depth of the reception speech ceremony.
Please make sure the speakers stand underneath the spotlight or at the podium while delivering their speeches, as in previous weddings, several speakers have moved a bit too much for our videographers to film them properly. The speech ceremony will appear much better on film if speakers try their best to mostly stand still during their speeches.
- Have a slow entrance and exit at the ceremony.
You’ve just gotten married, you’ve made the most important decision of your life, now go slow and take it easy. There’s no need to rush, especially on your wedding day, you’ve got your entire married life ahead of you. Enjoy these moments, as the slow stride to and from the ceremony lasting mere minutes will be etched in your mind forever. For our videographers and video cinematographers also, a slower-paced walk appears more elegant and graceful, and really adds depth to the storytelling experience. For the photographers, they’ll have more time and better opportunities to take your best wedding day shots.
