FAQ's

What is your approach to filming a wedding day?

Our approach in filming a wedding day is purely candid storytelling, not stage direction. We’ll still interact with you of course, and have a laugh every now and then, but we don’t want to interrupt with the flow of your day. Experience has shown us that this is the best way to capture those real, natural moments as they happen.

Why invest in a quality wedding film? I already have a great photographer to capture my day.
Your wedding day is one of the most celebrated days of your life. We believe that budgeting for an amazing photographer and wedding filmmaker is a necessity and should be one of the top decisions you make when planning your wedding day. You have spent months deciding on each and every detail. Your wedding film will allow you to relive not only the beauty but also the sounds and atmosphere of your special day for a lifetime. Ask any bride and she will agree that the wedding day flies by. Avoid the regret of not having a way to experience your day again by choosing to capture your day on film.

Do you offer photography?
Yes, we do! Check out our photography collections and don't forget to email us for availability and prices ;)

When will I receive my wedding video?
We need 2-5 months (depends on season) more or less to send you the video. We are not offering a mass-produced video package, so the process is very time-consuming. It’s for all the right reasons though – we want to make sure that we’re delivering the best we can to our couples. Please rest assured it will be well worth the wait.

Can I use my own music?

Of course you can. It will certainly make things easier when you give us a list of songs (10-12 songs min) that you like and we’ll use it as our starting point of selections. It is very important to send us your music selection by email before we start editing process of your video! If you don't send the list of songs on time, feature changes of music won't be our responsibility. 

How many DVDs or memory sticks will I get?

This depends on the package that you choose (check your packages). If you would like more copies of your DVD or memory stick we would be happy to make additional copies for you for a nominal processing fee.

How long do you keep a copy of our wedding footage?
Once the video is signed off and you have received your final copies we will keep the raw footage for 6 months after which time it will be deleted.

Should I inform my wedding coordinator about using external video services?

It is very important that you let your wedding coordinator on the resorts know ahead of time that you have offsite vendors arriving on your special day. It is important that the vendor day pass be organized and paid* for prior to our arrival and that all communication between your coordinator be saved and documented so that the morning of there are no issues or complications when we arrive to the resort. External vendors can't enter to the resorts as a guests unfortunately. We have to play by the rules and respect the policies in place or we will not be allowed to film future brides on these resorts for their special day. If we are coming to the resort to provide a service - it is a vendor day pass - unless the resorts policy states otherwise.
*no need to pay any fee for us in Majestic Resorts, Jellyfish, Huracan, Kukua and some other locations
