I make wedding films

null

Here’s what wedding day coverage starts with:

  • Josh + one (two filmmakers to capture your day)
  • We arrive up to 4 hours before ceremony & stay through your send-off*
  • Multiple cameras and audio capture during ceremony
  • 4-6 minute wedding highlight film
  • Personalized flash drive with wedding film(s) and digital delivery.

Pricing begins at $3199

This is the least amount of coverage needed to create a film like what you see on my website.
I definitely understand that some weddings need less coverage, my style may not resonate with everyone or the cost of my services may fall outside of your budget, so I’ve created a sister-brand that offers paired down coverage and services at a lower starting price, and features a great team of videographers and editors.

If my pricing or style doesn’t fit your wedding, please check out Pixel Love Films.

Want More?
No problem! Additional services can be added to your wedding day coverage.

Which film is right for you?

Here are examples of the wedding films I offer.
Please have a look and see which is best for you.

Wedding Highlight Film

Highlight Films are generally 4-6 minutes long and are a peek at the special moments that make your day your own.
This short film is perfect for sharing on social media and with friends and family.
This option is included when you hire us and can be upgraded to a Wedding Story Film or Wedding Featurette.
Want a Highlight Film AND a Story or Featurette? No problem!

Wedding Story Film

An upgrade from our Highlight Film, Cinematic Story Films are usually 7-12 minutes in length and show all of the special moments from your wedding day. This option can be selected in addition to a Highlight Film also!

Wedding Featurette

An upgrade from our Cinematic Story Films, Wedding Featurette Films are usually 15-20 minutes in length and are usually edited with events  in chronological order.

 

 

à La Carte Add-ons

Here are the à La Carte services that can be added to your wedding video package.
Click on each service for a detailed description.

Wedding Ceremony Film

A full ceremony multi-camera edit, complete with professional audio.
If you plan to have something special happen during your ceremony (readings, singing, etc), please let us know before the wedding, so we can prepare to capture everything.

Ceremony Live Streaming

If you have guests who can’t attend your wedding, whether it be because of travel or safety reasons, or venue limitations, we now offer live streaming options for your wedding. We’re not talking about a webcam from the back of the room either!
Your friends and family watch straight from the cameras we use to film your day and with no pesky wires trailing behind us.
Here’s an example of how we live stream:

Editing options available! For more info, click here.

Additional Filmmaker

Think we’ll need help at your wedding?
Additional filmmakers are extremely helpful during weddings that are spread out.

Additional Hours

If you’ve picked one of the packages above, we’re already staying with you through the reception and exit. However, our packages are structured so you can choose how early we arrive on the wedding day. If the package you picked does not have enough pre-ceremony hours to cover your make-up, hair, mimosas, gifts, etc; you can add additional hours before your package’s scheduled arrival.

Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal Dinners are often when friends and family give those amazing, heartfelt toasts and speeches. Don’t let them be forgotten!
Our Rehearsal Dinner coverage includes two hours of rehearsal dinner coverage with multiple cameras and professional audio capture. The video from your rehearsal dinner will be cut together and included on the flash drive with your wedding films.
Need a microphone and PA? Let us know and we can make it happen too!

Video Guest Book

“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… live 😀

Reception Speeches

In most cases, toasts and speeches are given during the Rehearsal Dinner, but who makes those rules anyway?!

If there are speeches planned for your reception, let us know! Even if you don’t plan to add this option to your package, we’d rather know about the speeches and be prepared to capture them when they happen, so that if you’d like to add them later, we’ll have the audio and video. You never know, someone may give the most amazing toast and you may want to add it to your highlight or story film!

Wedding Party Interviews

Everyone who adds these interviews absolutely LOVES them!
We take a few minutes individually with everyone in your wedding party and ask them a few questions about the bride & groom. The results are often hilarious, but can also be a tear-jerker.
We recommend having a quiet room available early in the day for these interviews, – because after ceremony, its nearly impossible to wrangle bridesmaids and groomsmen for interviews and if we catch them after they’ve had a few drinks, you can only imagine what kind of responses we get!

Engagement Film

Perfect to be shown at rehearsal dinners, this short film highlights the story of your love. A few weeks before your ceremony, we schedule a time to meet with the couple to interview them and film a few intimate moments to be edited in with the interviews. These films are amazingly sweet and often funny! There won’t be a dry eye in the house.

 

Aerial Footage

Aerial footage is an epic addition to your wedding film. In most cases, we use drones for “establishing shots”, for the opening of your film, or a transitional point, showing that we’ve moved from one location to another.
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).

Instagram Teaser

These short films aren’t limited to Instagram, that just seems to be the perfect place for them!
This 60 second highlight film shows a few amazing moments from your day.
These are generally available within the week following your wedding.
Here’s an example from Chelsea & Alex’s wedding:

Full First Dances

Planning a choreographed first dance or just want to have a complete video of your first dances?
*This item can be added after your wedding, but only if we were able to capture the first dances in their entirety. It’s best that we’re notified that you want them before the wedding, so we can be prepared to film them from start to finish.

Additional Flash Drives

Each package includes one personalized flash drive with your wedding film(s). If you need more for friends and family, you can add as many as you like up to one month after your wedding. This allows us enough time to order the personalized drives from the manufacturer and have them here in time for delivery.
If you need more after this time, we can still add them, but we’ll have to send a new quote based on the manufacturing cost and shipping.
