Wedding Videography FAQ's

Commonly asked Questions + Answers about your Wedding Videography

How many hours are included?

How much do you charge for wedding films?

We're not focused on counting the hours on a wedding day - the best moments are unplanned and spontaneous. Simply put, we are with you from both parties preparations through to the reception formalities (think: speeches/cake/first dance); never leaving before some kicker dance moves have been captured. If you are wanting coverage right through to farewells, we've got that option sorted too.

Our preset collections start from $3890, which includes coverage for the full day, a short film (3-5 minutes) and the long version of the full ceremony + all the speeches.

You can view our prices HERE. We can customise something for you too.

What are the payment terms? Do you offer payment plans?

What secures our wedding date? Can we tentatively lock you in?

A $500 payment is required to secure your date with the balance due prior to your wedding day.

We offer a variety of payment plans as well, including splitting up the total balance between the time you book and your wedding day in monthly instalments. The first payment acts as your retainer payment.

Sorry, we don't take pencil bookings. Weddings often book 15-18 months in advance so our advice is to lock things in officially from the get-go to secure your date. Once our contract has been signed and deposit paid, this locks your date in.

Who chooses the music for our film?

Do you travel? Are there additional fees?

That would be me. I choose music based on the narrative I’m constructing for your film – a unique score that compliments your celebration and vibe of your special day. Music is such an integral part of what I do as a storyteller.

Every song is properly licensed and I can guarantee it won’t date like John Legends ‘All of me’ or ‘From this moment on’ by Shania Twain. And none of your friends will have the same song for their wedding film – your film is as unique as you are.

Yes we travel. Whilst I call the Yarra Valley home, I’ve been fortunate to capture stories near and far across our great Australia land (inc Byron Bay, Tasmania, Phillip Island, Echuca + Mornington Peninsula).

International destinations have recently included Vail, Colorado; Portland, OR; Vegas + London. Passport is ready.

There are no travel fees for anywhere I can get to by car, but if plane is the only option, we can sort something out too. (Canada please)

How long after our wedding day will we receive our film?

Do you offer photography as well?

We respect our craft far more than simply whacking together a corny teaser without any structure. Because I only take on a limited number of jobs per wedding season, it’s important for me to make sure I deliver the very best films possible… and that takes time. Our turnaround time is generally within 12 weeks (seasonal depending).

You’ll likely find in your quest that some photographers offer video services as a ‘side’, and not the main course. We prefer to focus on only what we’re actually good at… wedding films.

It's super important to have a photo/video team that are on the same wavelength and share a similar ethos to capturing your wedding day.

We offer some amazing incentives when booking photographers we recommend - check out our friends here.
