  • Can you describe the editing process?

After a typical wedding day where we are on location(s) 6 hours and up, we’ll end up with around 2-3 hours of continuous footage per camera, 300-800 video clips and 2-6 audio sources. We organize all of the footage, sync the footage and audio, and put your wedding story together to re-create your wedding day. We also source music, and provide color correction and grading. We want your video to be as close to perfect as possible!

Yes! Most of our weddings are posted online (at the discretion of our couples). We can also send you links if you choose!


  • Why do I receive a digital file as a finished product?

DVDs, although great for their time, are only able to display DVD resolution 720x480. Most likely, the TV in your family room is capable of 6 times that resolution and they are all external media ready. DVDs are also prone to a condition known as Disc rot. So receiving your finished files digitally will allow you to copy the files to multiple computers, multiple hard drives and/or store them in the Cloud (Justcloud, ZipCloud, Mozy, or DropBox) for safe keeping and future proofing. It’s important that once you receive your files to take the proper steps to backup and safeguard your investment.


  • Do I have to tip my wedding videographer?

While tipping isn't required, it is always appreciated. Typically the rule of thumb is that the average tip as a thank-you is $100-$200 for exceptional service.
