FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What equipment do you use?  We use Sony 4K cameras, Sony lenses (wide and long), Sigma lenses, gimbals (stabilizers), professional microphones/recorders, professional lighting equipment, monopods, and tripods.

How long is your turn around time?  We have an average 3-4 week turnaround time.  Anything longer than that would only be for weddings that may need additional filming dates, a more complicated editing style, or that fall within the holiday season.

Do you travel and does it cost extra?  Yes, we love to travel!  Locations 30 miles or nearer from Tampa there is no additional cost.  Locations in Florida but farther than 30 miles will require additional travel fees.  Contact us for destination wedding costs.

Do you require a deposit?  We require a 25% non-refundable retainer to secure a wedding date.  The purpose of this retainer is to offset any loss of work if you were to cancel for any reason.

Are you insured?  Yes!  We carry full liability insurance.  Proof of insurance can be sent by request.

Will we meet you before the wedding day?  All of our packages include a pre-wedding interview session.  We like to meet 1-2 weeks prior to your wedding to conduct this audio-only interview, officially meet if we hadn’t already, and go over your wedding day timeline.

⭐ Do you do custom packages?  Yes!  We are very open to adjusting our package options to fit your wants, needs, and budget.  Keep in mind that the location(s) of your wedding, popularity of your wedding date, and other factors may affect our ability to do that.

⭐ Can we choose our own music?  Prior to your wedding, we will ask you to send 3-4 songs that you would like used in your wedding film.  There’s no guarantee that we will use them/use them all, but we use them as a guideline for the choices we do make.  Popular radio songs have a 50/50 chance of being acceptable due to copyright reasons, unless you are willing to pay for the song license.
