What equipment do you use?
We use the Canon Mark III DSLRs with a range of lenses and external audio recorders.

How will you coordinate with the photographer? Are we mic’d for the ceremony?
We like to get in touch with your photographer beforehand to introduce ourselves and they can get familiar with our style. As one half of us is a photographer, we aim to work together with your own photographer so we can both get amazing images and footage! During the ceremony, we usually mic up the groom as he has a pocket to pop the recorder in discreetly.

Can we have any/all of the RAW unedited footage?
We spend a lot of time going through the footage and ensure only the best bits are used, so this is not a service we provide.

Do you use additional lighting?
No, we use natural light all the way!

How long will you be filming on the day?
Either between 7-12 hours depending on what coverage you choose for your day.

Can we choose our own music?
Yes! Music makes your wedding film more personal to you so we would love to hear your suggestions. We use a variety of great music websites where we can licence some really beautiful songs. We ask a few weeks prior what songs you would like, so we can start editing straight away!

Do we need a license for music played in a church?
Yes, if you have a church wedding with an organist or would like music recorded. You will need the MCPS-PPL Joint License.

Do you offer any discounts/offers?
No, not usually, but we do have a ‘wish list‘ of weddings we’d love to capture! Let’s have a chat about what we can offer πŸ™‚

What happens if you are sick/emergency on the day of the event?
Thankfully, this hasn’t happened! We are part of some great videography emergency groups and can reach out for some help on short notice.
