This depends on when you're getting married. If you're getting married during a very popular wedding month (the most popular month to get married in the northeast is September), you should typically hire your videographer about 10-18 months before your wedding date.
We're usually booked 12-16 months out for our most popular wedding date.
If you're having a short engagement or making a last minute addition to your vendors, we might still have your date (so always check). The earlier you can reserve your date, the better chance you’ll have us be there!
We are so grateful that you're considering us for such an important day in your lives..
We request a 50% deposit and a signed contract to secure your date. (Although, we do offer flexible monthly installment payment plans for your wedding film with no additional fee).
we'd love to hear from you
Our wedding film crew is made up of 3 people. Sean and Cindy are your lead cameras and an assistant. We no longer offer single camera packages as our style cannot be replicated with a single camera person.
Having an assistant means that we get to spend more time filming your wedding and less time setting up our equipment or running to get fresh batteries and extra memory cards.
Absolutely! We're honored to be a part of LGBTQ+ weddings.
We're believe that the love between two people is sacred, regardless of who loves who. We want you to feel comfortable and excited that we celebrate your marriage with you.

Every wedding is different and the range for what people will spend on their wedding film varies.
We've created elopement packages for four hours on a weekday in January for a small budget, but we'll also film three-day weekend events during peak wedding season for 5 figures.
We film weddings locally and are up for filming weddings that take place thousands of miles away. Please contact us and I'll send you detailed pricing information and package options for your wedding.
Our custom packages start with 2 shooters (Cindy and Sean) and a videography assistant with 8 hours of coverage, a feature film, and a sneak peek.
From there, you can customize your package with exactly what you want from drones to trailers, rehearsal dinner coverage, to entirely separate films.
There's no stress of trying to figure if a package includes something you don't want and if you can swap this for that because you get to build it to your exact needs.
We have access to an amazing catalog of licensed music that is 100% cleared for lawful sharing on the internet. This music spans from emotionally moving to fresh and poppy—you've already heard it in our films if you've checked out our work.
By the time we're in post-production we usually have a very good idea of what you like and are able to pick music that's spot-on to your personality and preference. But we love your input on the music you like and want to have included, so send over your ideas! We want to hear them.
Why are we so adamant about using licensed music? Copyright infringement laws are tricky (and those lawsuits can get ugly) which is something we do everything in our power to protect you from. We like our house, we're sure you like yours, and we want everyone to not have to sell them to pay for a copyright lawsuit (on the off chance, heaven forbid, something happens with unlicensed music).
It might sound weird, but I'm so glad you asked that.
First, and most important to our process, your projects stay in-studio from the moment you contact us until the moment we say, "Here's your final film, enjoy reliving your biggest day all over again (and again, and again)!"
We've been on this journey with you, we know your story and it's our responsibility to craft a gorgeous, heartwarming film for you.
We wouldn't dream of using third-party editing companies to create your film (though, a lot of other companies do to save time and money).
And we never use boilerplate editing templates to create your films, which is why our films are always so personal, captivating, and engaging. If our films have you addicted to watching the weddings of people you don't know—just imagine how you'll feel when you watch the film we create for you.
There are decades of filming and creative experience under our belts and we've filmed over 600 weddings in that time—weddings of all different customs, denominations, and budgets. We know the wedding industry inside and out.
If we charged what other videographers charged—our films would look like everyone else's and the feel they generate those big feelings because we would have to change our process.
Depending on the time of the year it can take anywhere from 2 to 4 months to receive your feature length wedding film. Highlight films average about 6 weeks. Your sneak peek is released within 7 days of your wedding.
In 2018, our feature films averaged around a 2-3 month editing time.
