WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
We are based in the Raleigh, NC, but love to travel.
DO YOU CHARGE TRAVEL OR FOR MULTIPLE LOCATIONS?
Every wedding day is unique and some have more locations than other so we don’t discriminate that or charge travel for it. If your wedding is more than 60 miles from Raleigh, NC then travel fees may apply but are evaluated on a case by case basis. We love to travel and we love being a part of weddings everywhere.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
After being in the industry for several years, we consider our equipment top-of-the-line. Without getting into nerdy specifics, our cameras are small enough to be inconspicuous and powerful enough to capture high quality color and clarity.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR?
We try out best to blend in but not look like we’re attending a funeral. Mostly dress pants and a blouse or a dress along with cute but comfy shoes.
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE AT MY WEDDING?
That depends on the amount of coverage purchased through the packages. In general, we arrive 2-3 hours prior to your ceremony and stay until after the last major event at your reception. A typical wedding day needs about 8 hours of coverage, maybe more if you are planning any special events prior to the ceremony, have a special exit or there is travel involved.
HOW DO YOU CAPTURE SOUND?
We put a small mic on the groom and officiant during the ceremony. If the dress allows we will also place a small mic that will not be seen on the bride as well. During the reception, we plug into the DJ's system. (Confirm with your DJ if you want to be sure!) We always have a backup mic during the ceremony and reception.
DO YOU WORK WELL WITH OTHER VENDORS?
We pride ourselves in having awesome relationships with vendors we've worked with. Being that we offer both Photo and Video services we have a keen insight into both sides so we find that we work with other photographers. Photo and video have to work well alongside one another, and we make sure we do our part.
HOW LONG DO OUR FILMS TAKE AFTER THE WEDDING?
Depending on the time of year, we aim to have films completed between 2-4 months after your wedding. Not fast enough? You can get expedited editing as an add-on!
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE YOUR FILM?
This depends on which package that you choose. Your film will either come on a custom USB or it will be made available to you through a digital download. We will post your film to our Facebook page and Vimeo.com, where you can share it with friends and family and post online.
HOW CAN WE KEEP IN TOUCH WITH YOU?
Easiest way is using the contact form built into the site. You can also shoot me a text message at 919-830-0194. I only listen to voice mails a few times a week so email, text or even reaching out on Facebook are the best ways to reach us. After an initial chat or email exchange we love to set up a meeting to get to know one another either face to face or video chat. It's a wonderful way of learning about each other, chatting about the wedding and answering any questions you might have for us.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
The sooner the better. Right now couples are typically booking us 9-12 months out from their wedding day, but if your wedding is in one of the prime times of the year like May or October here in North Carolina you may want to book earlier to ensure we are available.
HOW DO WE GO ABOUT BOOKING?
Once you let us know which package you would like, we’ll send through the quote and contract with all the details. Then from there, you just need to forward the deposit, accept the quote, sign the contract electronically and we’re all set to go!
