Q. If I want to be filmed at the salon while getting ready, what do I have to do to be able to have you film at a salon?
A. If you are planning on getting ready at a beauty salon, it is always a good idea to check in advance to see if they will
allow you to take videos in their building.
Q. Is it possible to video everyone at the wedding ceremony and reception? How long do you work with me on the day of
A. No. It is impossible to guarantee that everyone will be filmed. As a general rule with our videos, we focus solely on the bride and groom. If you want to make sure that a specific family member is filmed, you must contact us before the wedding. We will stay at the event until we get the footage we need to finish your video/capture the proceedings. If there is an event that will take place later in the evening, please let me know ahead of time so that we can make arrangements in our schedules.
Q. How many videographers will there be?
A. As of now, only one videographer is available on the day of the wedding. If a new videographer is hired before the date of your wedding, we will contact you to see if you prefer more than one videographer.
Q. How do you edit our video?
A. The way we shoot and edit the video is by using candid camera film shooting and editing techniques through Adobe Premiere Pro. This means that your entire day will be condensed into a certain length video. Also please note, that in the film we only include the most important moments from the wedding ceremony.
Q. Can we buy the raw footage? How long do you keep a master copy of our video on file?
A. Yes, we do sell the raw footage. The cost is $175. We keep raw footage on file for only four (4) months after you have received your wedding video. We keep a master copy of your video on hand for two years after your wedding date. After that time period, we cannot guarantee that we will have a copy of your video. We highly recommend to every couple, that you purchase some brand of media fire safe: Sentry and Brinks make these. This will ensure that you will have a copy of the video in a protected location.
Q. How long does it take to finish editing our video? Can we make changes to the final video?
A. We allow changes to the final video only if mistakes were made on DL Wedding Films’ part. Such mistakes include misspellings and other changes, which were discussed with us ahead of time. Other changes to the final video can be made, but there will be a charge per hour to do so. Changes to the final video, which were not caused by DL Wedding Films, are billed at a rate of $10 per hour with a minimum of 2 hours charged. These charges are not meant to be a deterrent, but changes to the final video that were not discussed with us ahead of time still take a great deal of additional editing time and excess materials.
Q. How do we get our wedding videos/photographs when you are finished?
A. When we inform you that your video is finished. The final video will be available for online sharing to friends and relatives.
