Welcome

A common misconception about wedding videography is that we set a camera on a tripod just before your ceremony, point it at the alter and call it a day.
Your wedding day is so much more than just the ceremony and your wedding film should be as well. While you’re making memories with your absolute favorite people, we’re capturing those moments for you to treasure for years to come. From your best friend’s sweet speech at the reception to your groom’s voice trembling as he recites his vows – this is your history in the making,
and memories don’t stand still.

Wedding Film Packages

If we have learned anything filming weddings, it is that each wedding day is a unique story. From touching moments with family, to the grooms emotion upon seeing his bride for the first time on their wedding day, we specialize in capturing the details that make this the happiest day of your life. Blending cinematic and journalistic styles, your narrative will come to life and Grindstone will no longer be just your wedding videographer – we become your storyteller.

Up to 3 hrs of Pre-Ceremony Coverage

We arrive up to 3 hours before your wedding ceremony to capture fun moments while you are getting ready – hair & makeup, mimosas and laughs with your girls, the exchange of gifts or letters, the dress, the groom hanging with his guys, and, my personal favorite, your first look. Your wedding day is so much more than the ceremony!

Ceremony Coverage

We capture the entire ceremony from start to finish with multiple full-HD cameras and professional audio equipment, including the wedding party processional, the groom’s reaction to seeing his bride, the vows, and the officiant announcing you has husband and wife. We incorporate these moments into your final film(s) to tell the story of your day.
If you plan to have something special happen during your ceremony such as readings, singing, etc., please let us know before the wedding so we can prepare to capture everything.
*We do not use wireless channels for our audio, so there is no interference with any of the venue’s audio systems. Our recorders fit comfortably in the groom & officiant’s pockets and require no action from you.

Reception Coverage

It’s not often that you get ALL of your friends and family in one place and we capture it all. Your grand entrance and first dances, cake cutting, bouquet and garter tosses, Aunt Linda and Uncle Bob getting down on the dance floor, and of course your final send off. Because our packages aren’t limited by a number of hours at the end of the night, we’ll be there through the exit and we’ll never ask you to pay for additional hours for reception coverage.
Planning to have toasts and speeches at your reception? Let us know in advance, so we can plan to capture them in full!

Two Cinematographers - Multiple Cameras

Having 2 cinematographers allows us to cover your wedding more completely and allows us the time to get more cinematic shots, multiple angles, and coverage of simultaneous events. For instance, if the bride and groom are getting ready in separate locations, we have the ability to capture details from both, rather than missing those moments.

Professional Audio Capture

Audio is an extremely important part of your wedding day!
We use multiple recorders to capture everything from the homily and vows, to special readings and musical performances, as well as your first announcement as a bride & groom.
*We do not use wireless channels for our audio, so there is no interference with any of the venue’s audio systems.

Wedding Highlight Film

Highlight Films are generally 4-8 minutes long and are a peek at the pivotal moments that made your day yours, making them perfect for sharing on social media and with friends and family.

Flash Drive with Wedding Films

Once completed, wedding films are loaded onto a personalized storage drive. Need more than one? Additional drives can be added for $35 each up to one month after your wedding day. This gives us time to get the drives in time for your guaranteed delivery.
If you need another drive after that, we can still get them! However, we’ll have to send a new quote based on the manufacturing cost and shipping.

Aerial Cinematography

Aerial footage is a great way to document your get ready location as well as your ceremony and reception locations.
Whether we can fly on your wedding day is based on the weather, location and several safety factors.
We’re sorry, but we do not fly during ceremonies.
We’re licensed by the FAA as an sUAS Remote Pilot (part 107).

Video Guestbook

“Congratulations from Aunt Sue and Uncle Bob!”
We take a few minutes at the beginning of the reception and ask your wedding guests if they’d like to give a special message for your wedding film.
If we wait until later, once the drinks start flowing, the messages get a little…lit 🙂
We compile these messages into its own film and include it on your storage drive.

We used Grindstone Wedding Films as our videographer for our wedding last week and had a wonderful experience working with Josh and his team. We met with Josh about a month before our wedding and got a chance to see his past work and talked through some of our ideas. Josh was very receptive to...

Josh was wonderful to work with and extremely professional. He was very thorough during our first conversation and knew exactly what I needed. I ended up adding more time to the day as Josh was spot on with the timing. He made sure that we felt comfortable and could have a special first look. I...

We could not have found a more perfect videographer for our wedding day! Josh was such a sweet and professional man to work with, and made us feel completely at ease in front of the camera. Both my husband and I agreed that we just felt like we were hanging out with a close friend! […]

The bottom line is, you already know your fairytale isn’t going to be cheap, and the last thing you need is one expensive vendor preventing another expensive vendor (or multiple vendors, GASP!) from giving you what you pay for. We are here to make magic happen for you, not just in our own product, but through your entire day. And let’s just say that IF they handed out awards for wedding congeniality, we would need a trophy room!
