Frequently asked questions.
Why do we need a wedding filmmaker?
Photographs are fantastic but there is just something special about being able to press play and see motion. To hear voices. It is just an entirely different experience. Video does something that you don’t realise until after the day. My approach is to capture the emotions and moments of your wedding day, not just still images.
What kind of films will we receive ?
Highlights - A beautifully crafted selection of the very best moments from your day. Running for approximately 5 minutes, it includes hand picked highlights, ensuring you can re-live those extra special moments.
Feature - Running for approximately 15 minutes, the feature film is crafted in the same style as the highlights film but has a longer running time. This allows me to expand on the highlights film and showcase an entire day of memories.
(The highlights and feature films are hand crafted with high production values, professional editing, colour grading and have a natural narrative style.)
Complete Ceremony & Speeches - These are films that capture all the details of your formalities as they happened from several camera angles.
Do we meet ahead of the wedding ?
Absolutely. If you are within the Perth metro area I'd love to meet up and discuss all of your plans in person even before you decide to book. If you are further afield or a meeting in person is difficult we can always chat online.
How much deposit do we need ?
A 25% deposit is all that is required and that reserves me for your special day.
How long will you be with us for ?
When you book me I'm yours for the day. I'll be there to capture all of the detail from morning preparations until late in the party to make sure I can produce a set of films that accurately reflect your day. No time limits, I simply leave when I'm certain that I have everything I need to make you a perfect set of films. If you have a special farewell planned at the end of the night I will be there for that too!
Do you travel ?
I'm based in Perth but will happily travel across Australia and abroad to capture your special day. If your day is going to take place within Perth and the South West then all travel costs are covered in the Essentials service. If you are getting married further afield there may be an additional fee to cover travel and accommodation.
What can we expect from you on the day ?
I like everything to be as natural and relaxed as possible. I do my best at staying unobtrusive to you and your guests. A skilled wedding videographer, for the most part, will generally remain unseen during the day.
Can you include drone footage in our films ?
Certainly. I offer drone footage as an extra to the Essential service. A drone is the perfect way to create stunning shots of your venue and the surrounding landscapes.
Do you have insurance ?
Of course! I hold full public liability insurance to cover against any potential accidents and can provide documentation if your venue needs it.
How do you choose the music ?
The music is handpicked to suit the feel and pace of your day and is selected to be perfectly paired with your footage. The music is sourced from specialised licensed music websites. I enjoy finding songs that couples will love as well as discovering unique and original songs that give a personal feel to each film. Unfortunately, due to copyright laws I cannot use songs released by commercial artists.
