On the other hand, two photographers can cover different angles and locations at the same time, offering a more thorough capture of the wedding day, reducing the chances of missed moments.

1. What is actual day cinematography, and how is it different from traditional videography?
Actual day cinematography captures your wedding with an emphasis on storytelling, emotion, and detailed moments, presenting the event in a cinematic style. In contrast, traditional videography is typically more straightforward and less stylized, focusing mainly on documenting the event as it happens.

2. If I have only one cinematographer, can you create a similar effect?
While a single cinematographer can still capture beautiful moments, the coverage might be more limited compared to having two or three cinematographers. With just one, there are constraints in capturing different angles and moments simultaneously, meaning some moments might be missed. One cinematographer provides basic coverage, lacking the variety and depth achievable with a larger crew.

3. Will there be a full-length video in addition to the highlight video?
A full-length video is available upon request, provided it’s not included in your selected package. Please let us know if you would like this added before to the shoot.

4. Can we choose the music for our wedding film?
Absolutely, you are encouraged to suggest music that resonates with your personal style and story. Furthermore, please supply the chosen song in MP3 format.

5. Can we request specific shots or moments to be included in the film?
Definitely. In order to make your wedding truly unique, we welcome any special requests or specific moments you wish to be captured. Please discuss these with us before your wedding day to ensure they are included.

6. Do you provide drone shots?
Drone footage is available upon request. Please note that its usage might be restricted due to weather conditions, specific locations, legal requirements, etc.

7. What’s the difference between a teaser, highlight video, and full-length video?
Teaser: A teaser is a very short video, typically lasting about 30 seconds to 1 minute. It is designed to give a quick glimpse or “tease” of the wedding day. You often share teasers soon after the wedding to pique interest and keep friends and family excited for the full video. They usually feature a few striking shots from the wedding set to music, but they do not delve into details or tell the full story.
Highlight Video: A highlight video is longer than a teaser, typically running between 4 to 6 minutes. It serves to capture the essence and key moments of the wedding day, edited in a cinematic style. Highlight videos include significant parts like the ceremony, vows, first dance, and other memorable moments, all woven together with music, speeches, or vows as the audio backdrop. They want to highlight the best parts of the day in a way that’s emotionally engaging and tells a more complete story of the wedding.
Full-length Video: A full-length wedding video is the most comprehensive, usually lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour. In particular, this video aims to cover the wedding in much greater detail and includes footage from the entire day – from getting ready, the ceremony, reception, speeches, dances, and other significant moments. The editor cuts the full-length video for clarity but includes longer scenes than the highlight reel, offering a real-time experience of the wedding day. The couple particularly value this format for its completeness and often keep it for personal memories rather than for sharing widely on social media.
NOTE: Full-length videos typically need two or more cinematographers. To cover important moments, such as the ceremony and speeches from a variety of angles. Multiple cinematographers capture reactions, exchanges, and occurrences that a single cinematographer might miss, making the wedding day more dynamic and full.
