Which package is best for me?
This is simple:
Deluxe package offers the most important aspect of our craft - out style of shooting. Let's face it, you can not make a great movie from crappy footage. With our vision, you will have footage that can be turned into a beautiful main feature movie later on. In the mean time you will enjoy a short highlights movie or SDE (just like the ones on the blog) that we'll edit for you shortly after the wedding, or better yet, at the wedding. Remember, while the Deluxe package does not include the main feature movie, you are still able to purchase one in the future.
Premium package includes everything the Deluxe has and adds our award winning main feature movie and a documentary edit of your ceremony and all toasts.
Finally, Supreme package comes with the most entertaining option videography has to offer these days: the same day edit. If you're not familiar, SDE means we will have a short highlights movie ready to play at the reception. Keep in mind, SDE requires 3-4 hours of editing time, so it might not work with every wedding timeline. Supreme package also includes a 3 videographer (someone has to keep shooting while one of us edits your movie) and all raw footage. The whole deal basically.

Q:Why do we need two videographers?
A: It’s similar to the way theatrical movies are made. The second camera gets a second angle, a second opinion, another view, another vision and, importantly, more footage which is valuable in the editing and production process. Two videographers help each other with equipment and set-up, saving important time that can be spent on shooting more of your wedding. Two videographers working in tandem create a more complete, more detailed, story of your day.
Q: What is SDE?
A: A same day edit (SDE) is essentially your wedding video, edited on the day of and ready to view at the reception. In my opinion, this is one of the best ways to entertain your guests. The look on their faces when they see you walking down the isle and realizing it just happened a few hours ago, is priceless.
With that said, a same day edit requires a lot of skills and experience. The movie has to be completed before your guests leave and in most cases that leaves us about 3-4 hours hours to edit! Talking about pressure...
Q: What is the main feature?
A: The main feature is a fully edited and produced, 20-40 minute long video that covers your entire wedding day; from the preparation, through the ceremony, to the reception. It includes the most memorable and important parts of the ceremony, the announcement of the new couple at the reception, the first dance, cutting the cake, the toast and so on. One thing to keep in mind that it takes 6-8 months to produce.
Q: What is a Love Story and how long does it take to produce one?
A: A Love Story is a video that we shoot and produce before your wedding. What it contains is entirely up to you, although we have lots of experience and plenty of good ideas to lend should you want them. It can be a story of how you met, how you planned your wedding, your favorite romantic spots, or just the two of you enjoying each other—taking a walk, playing around, dancing, kissing. It takes anywhere from four to twelve hours to film, depending on the story that you want to tell, the locations, and so on.
Q: What is a highlights video?
A: The highlights video is a summary of your wedding day, set to a song of your choice. It includes the most powerful images of your wedding. It's usually pretty upbeat and energetic, although that depends on the combination of the images and the music that’s chosen. The best part is that it's small and short and you can share it with anyone online. You can also put in your iPod or iPhone.
Q: What is Save The Date video?
A: It’s a fun and short video to let your guests know the date of your wedding so they can put it on their calendars before you send out your invitations. It can replace a Save the Date mailed announcement or can be in addition to it. We can film a Save the Date video during the engagement or Love Story session, or at another time.
