We live and work in Salem, Oregon. We do NOT charge travel fees for any weddings or projects within a 100 mile radius of our business. We can discuss filming anywhere you'd like, though we do ask for reimbursement of hotel stay and airfare should they be required for travel or destination events.
What wedding/elopement packages do you offer?
We proudly offer a base package for $950 which includes 2 videographers, 6 hours of coverage, 4K resolution, aerial (drone) footage if permitted, and lav mic audio recording for vows/speeches if desired. We then select the very best audio and video clips we obtain -- the most important and defining moments of your day -- and interweave them into a 5 minute, fully edited and color graded film that you and your loved ones will enjoy watching time and time again!! Couple's may also elect to choose additional toppings from our A LA CARTE menu which includes additional hours of coverage, additional minutes of edited footage, and/or wedding day/first look trailers. This set up fully allows you to customize your perfect wedding package! If you'd like to discuss availability and move forward with a potential booking, please visit Our Pricing page to complete your intake information. We honestly can't wait to hear more about your wedding day/elopement plans!
How much deposit is required?
We kindly request a non-refundable $500 retainer to reserve your wedding date. This amount is applied toward your total package cost, except in the case of client cancellation. We do not charge for rescheduling a date of service, though we cannot always guarantee availability. We will continue to do our best to work with clients who experience unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances -- such as a global pandemic!
What do you charge for business or family films?
Pricing can vary depending on time required for filming, audio needs, and overall anticipated time for editing video depending on project complexity. To provide you the most accurate information possible, please drop us a few notes using the Our Pricing form and you will hear back from us shortly!
Who chooses the soundtrack?
Due to strict laws that govern copyrights for artistic/intellectual property, we will ONLY use properly licensed music for our films. As a perk to our clients, we carry at least 2 paid annual subscriptions each year to large catalogs of music from which we choose our material. The song libraries we utilize are mostly comprised of songs from independent artists so are not likely to include mainstream radio music. While this might initially be disappointing to hear, most couples adore having their own unique sound track once their film is completed!! Especially once learning that most commercial radio songs are not available to license for independent films, or when possible, may cost upwards of $15,000 per use. We are always open to input regarding song selection and overall vision for the film, but also we also highly value the importance of matching the proper pace, rhythm, and cadence of the sound track to the visuals of the film. Selecting the perfect sound track is a huge part of our creative process! We really enjoy doing that work for you and always base our picks on the genres you listen to and samples of music you love -- our aim is always your style, not ours.
Where can we find reviews of your service?
Our main source of formal client feedback has historically been the review section of our Facebook business page, and although our Instagram page does not have a formal review section, it might also be a great place to check out the interactions we have with our friends, fellow wedding vendors, clients, and followers! We have more recently established with Google Business and Yelp so you can expect more there in the future. Please contact us via e-mail if you have any other questions.
