Here are the start-to-finish steps once you fill out our contact form & make sure we're available for your day:
1. WE'LL CHAT.
We want to get to know as much about you & your day as possible and see where you are in your search for the right companies. Any questions you have are open for asking and we'll help to guide you through understanding how we work and which Collection & add-ons work best for you and your budget.
2. THE CONTRACT & RESERVATION FEE.
When we settle on a Collection that has exactly what you're looking for Emily will write up a contract for us. The contract will have your essential information, Collection choice, and our terms & conditions for post-production and final products. We like to keep our booking accessible but need to know you're serious. As such we require a small reservation fee, but further payments may be made in any amount you'd like as long as you're paid in full one month before your date. Once we receive both your signed contract & reservation fee you may consider yourself booked!
3. GATHERING THE DETAILS.
Approximately 2 months before your wedding date we'll send over a brief questionnaire to fill out that will provide us with timeline & gather vendor contact information, then 1-2 weeks before your wedding date we'll schedule a time to chat over the phone about your the details of the form. From there we'll make a timeline for ourselves and call your planner/coordinator, photographer, & anyone else necessary to introduce ourselves and make sure your day goes as smoothly as possible.
4. YOUR WEDDING DAY.
On your wedding day we'll plan to arrive about 30-60 minutes before our start time. This is to ensure we have enough time to "debrief" with our team before we head out, do any necessary equipment prep, & make sure we're 100% ready to shoot when your coverage time begins. Toward the end of your day we'll ask you approximately 30 minutes before our end time if you'd like us to extend our coverage to Over Time (to be billed later, no cash necessary) to cover more of your celebration. When we're finished we'll say our goodbyes to you & your vendors and be on our way.
5. THE DELIVERABLES.
After your big day we immediately backup all footage to multiple locations for safekeeping & enter you into our queue. We'll keep you posted on your position in the queue and when your films are next to be edited. Be on the lookout for sneak-peek frame grabs on our social media pages too, we like to post from our current projects. Once you're up we send a draft of your Wedding Trailer, you let us know about any minor fixes, then we'll post! From there we finish up your lengthier films of choice, then design & place an order for your USB Box or DVD set. When we ship out your films we'll send you a tracking number & ask that you give us a quick shout to let us know you received everything safe & sound. Next, sit back & enjoy your films!
