Frequently Asked Questions

What can you do for me? What sets you apart from other filmmakers?

With a background in fine art photography, I have a deep understanding of storytelling, design, and composition of light. Beyond the careful composure of visual elements, I want to create wedding films for you that you will want to watch over and over! I seek those intimate, joyful and candid moments. From start to finish, my focus as a filmmaker is on your story. The more I get to know you, the more that your wedding films reflect you as a couple. My goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible when capturing footage. Investing in a love story film will allow you to repeatedly immerse yourself and others in future generations in the excitement of your wedding day.

How many weddings do you film per year?

I am a strong believer in quality over quantity. With that being said, I only take on 20 weddings per year to ensure that I am dedicating enough focus and time on each love story. Every couple is important to me, and so I want to produce the best reflection of the day possible!

What is a highlight film?

A highlight film is the main collection offering that include snippets of the big day including getting ready, first look if you plan on having one, ceremony, and reception moments all edited into a short film. To view one, click here. In addition to the highlight film, I also offer social media sneak peeks, a full ceremony film, a full toasts film, full reception moments film, engagement films, rehearsal dinner coverage, and more! For more details, please complete the contact form and I’d love to answer any questions you may have.

Do you travel for weddings?

I sure do! I absolutely love to travel and have a passport! I am based in South Jersey in the Philadelphia metro area. If your wedding is outside of the tri-state area, I will account for additional travel as per the investment guide you will receive upon inquiry.

Do we get to select the music in our film?

While I have a preliminary discussion with you about your music preferences, I accommodate these requests as best as I can and curate the music in your films accordingly. Because of various copyright laws and regulations, popular song requests are noted and considered for stylistic purposes only.

Do you film elopements and intimate weddings?

Absolutely! Upon completion of the inquiry form, mention these details and I’ll be sure to send along the custom elopement wedding collection.

Do you have insurance?

I am insured and can furnish a copy of the certificate of liability upon request.

Do you provide RAW footage?

RAW footage is an A La Carte option available if you would like it. When purchasing RAW footage, the clips are stored on a hard drive and are organized by moment and are not edited at all. If you are looking simply to view everything captured from the day in one film, I suggest adding a Wedding Documentary edit. This is a film that has every clip lightly edited and placed in chronological order. Due to the nature of the filming process, the overall look and feel of the footage and its audio can vary from clip-to-clip.

What happens after filming our wedding?

The process of creating your love story films from start to finish is extensive, and I pride myself in putting a lot of extra care into the creation of your films. After filming your wedding, the footage is placed through my multi-step back-up system. When that is complete, I filter through every piece of footage and audio to select the best of the best to be featured in your films. Then I search for the perfect music, build a rough cut of the film, refine it, level the audio, add slight color corrections, re-watch it, and export and upload for delivery.

How long will it be until I receive my wedding film(s)?

Social media sneak peeks are typically delivered within a week after the wedding. The Wedding Highlight Film, Full Ceremony Film, and other films you’ve invested in are delivered within 12-16 weeks after the wedding. Engagement films are delivered within 4 weeks after filming

How do you deliver the wedding films?

I deliver wedding films digitally and privately accessible online. You can download them, view them, and share with others. In addition to digital delivery, I also offer custom engraved USB drives as well as our most popular option, the video heirloom album. Much like a photo album, you can grab it from your coffee table and share your films with friends and family.

How do we go about booking you and reserving our date?

First of all, thank you so much for considering me to document your special day! I consider that a tremendous honor! Filling out the contact form below is the best way to get in touch. I'll reach out, and then we can set up a time to chat about you both and your big day plans. I require a 40% non-refundable retainer fee and signed contract to secure your wedding date and rates. The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days before the wedding date. Other payment options are available as well.
