AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE
“Holy moly...it's like a movie! Of our wedding! We are astonished by your high-quality work and craftsmanship!”
MIREILLE & KENN
We're invested in learning more about your relationship, style, and the things that matter most to you. Once you fill out our contact form, we would love to schedule a call to get to know you and hear about all the little details to do with your wedding. That way we can create a personalized proposal that will bring your vision to life and we can start planning out your amazing film.
Around the month prior to your wedding, we will connect with you or your wedding planner to discuss the specifics in greater detail. Your only task is to unwind and savor these final moments as an engaged couple.
Prior to the first event on your wedding day, we'll dedicate time to capturing footage of the location you've chosen for your wedding weekend. As soon as the celebrations commence, we'll allow the narrative to develop naturally, documenting both grand and intimate moments. Our aim is to be unobtrusive, merging effortlessly into the crowd to showcase your genuine selves on film.
The morning after your wedding day, while the feelings and energy of your day are still fresh on our minds, we sit in our office sipping on coffee to pick out music that best fits your film. This sets the overall tone of your story. Next, we familiarize ourselves with your footage and the words spoken throughout your day so that we can start piecing your film together. This is where the magic happens. We fully engulf ourselves into your story and retell it from our point of view. The last step is to color correct and add the final touches onto your film. By this point we will be able to tell the story of your day by heart!
After dedicating lots of time and energy perfecting your story, it’s time to deliver your wedding film! We love to be a part of this exciting experience with you and seeing your emotional reactions when you watch your film for the first time if you are comfortable sharing it with us. We're even more thrilled when you invite us to your premiere watch party to share it with your closest friends and loved ones. When our film captures the essence of your special day and you can enjoy it for years to come, we know our job is done.
PLACES WE HAVE TRAVELED CAPTURING WEDDINGS
WILL YOU BE THE VIDEOGRAPHER AT MY WEDDING?My wife Kayla and I personally shoot most of our films! However, since we are only able to personally film a limited amount of weddings per year, we are fortunate to have been able to grow our company and build a strong team of shooters that we love and trust to represent our brand as well. This allows us to capture a couple weddings in one day instead of having to turn couples away! Although Kayla and I make every effort to be the ones that spend the day with you, you may have the opportunity to work with some of our talented team of shooters if we are unavailable. In that case, our skilled team will spend the day with you capturing every moment and then hand off the footage to us to start the post-production process of your film. The editing and story telling portion of our creative process is such a huge component so even if Kayla and I don't get to personally be the ones there with you on your wedding day, we still add plenty of our own personal touch and love to your film. If spending your day with Kayla and I as your filmmakers is very important to you, the best way to ensure to reserve us personally is to book our Timeless or Exclusive package. There is no better way to get to know you and your story better than spending your entire wedding day by your side taking in all the sights, sounds, and emotions right there with you. The next morning, we sit in our office, sipping on coffee, and selecting music for your film while the energy of your day is fresh on our minds!
DO YOU OFFER PHOTOGRAPHY?Yes! Much like our associate videography team, we also have an associate photography team that you can reserve with us as well. Although our primary focus is videography, we appreciate the importance of photography as well and want to make sure you have the perfect photo and video team for your taste and style. Let us know if you are interested in photography services as well and we can send you some of our full photo galleries for you to check out and see our photo packages would be a good fit for you! Just to add to that, it is definitely not a deal breaker if you choose not to book us for your photography! It is more important to us that you have both a video and photo team that you love, so we are happy to work with any photographer you choose. We even have a list of photographers we have worked with in the past that we absolutely LOVE and can recommend to you! Talk to us about the photography style you are going for and we will try our best to send you some of our favorite photographer recommendations based on your specific taste!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY WEDDING FILM?Post-production on your wedding film is a very detail-oriented process, from finding the perfect music to the perfect color grade, I never want to rush the process. Most wedding films are completed within 12 weeks of your wedding date. Depending on the season you may get your film back sooner! Everyone’s wedding is put in queue in the order they are filmed. If you want us to prioritize your edits to get your content back sooner, we also offer rush edits options such as a social media teaser or a faster turnaround.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK WEAVER WEDDING FILMSOur packages start at $2000. You can view our packages at the link below. However, since every wedding is unique we customize most packages for our couples so that can build one that is perfect for you! If you don't see a package that you are completely in love with, reach out to us so we can talk about it!
CAN YOU TRAVEL TO MY VENUE AND IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?We love to travel! We include travel in our packages for up to 120 miles outside of Greenville, SC. However, if your wedding location is beyond the 120 miles, we do add a fee to cover the additional travel expenses for 1-2 nights stay depending on the distance. We always look for the best lodging rate in the area or are happy to be flexible if you have a room block, vendor airbnb, or something similar - so just talk to us about it! Also, if you are getting married at a destination that is on our bucket list, we may be able to work with you or even waive travel fees to make your dream wedding film come true! Let's talk about it!
HOW TO BOOKFirst, fill out our contract form so we can meet you! Then, if we are a good fit and available for your date, a retainer of 50% and a signed agreement will be required to secure your event date. The remainder is due 30 days prior to the event date.
HOW WILL MY FILM BE DELIVERED?Your film(s) will be delivered to you online through a custom webpage and interactive Netflix-style gallery link to easily share and download your all of your content.
CAN I CHOOSE THE MUSIC FOR MY HIGHLIGHT FILM?Each wedding film is unique and music is an important part of telling your story. We love to have the creative freedom to carefully select music for your film based on your personality and the vibe of your wedding day. If you prefer, I can send some websites with music that I can legally use due to copyright laws. Most likely, I will not be able to edit your film to your favorite popular song(s). You can also suggest a style or genre of music for me to use and I will be happy to accommodate your request.
CAN YOU FLY YOUR DRONE AT MY VENUE?In most cases, yes! We include drone in all of our video packages at no extra cost to you. Most venues will not have an objection and in most cases, they welcome aerial footage of their location. That being said, permission by the venue is not the main deciding factor. We are Part 107 Certified by the FAA to fly our drones. This means we may not be able to fly our drones depending on various factors like proximity to airports, political dignitaries in the area, and safe flying conditions. However, we will always do our best to prepare in advance and get the footage if possible.
DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT OR SAVE THE DATE SESSIONS?Yes, we do! The Save the Date Film is a short 60 second film that you can share with your family and friends announcing your engagement and wedding date. The Love Story Film is a longer 3-5 minute film that thoroughly tells the story of your relationship. We also really love it when our couple decide to display their film at their wedding reception - some have even chosen to watch theirs for the first time on their wedding day!
HOW IS AUDIO RECORDED FOR MY WEDDING DAY?We take great care to capture audio for your wedding. We believe that not having great audio is just as bad as not having great footage. We usually do our best to plug into the audio system at your ceremony. In addition, we may also mic the officiant, the groom, and the bride. We have backup mics attached to our cameras in case those fail. Your consultation is a great time to let us know if there will be any special readings or music performances. For speeches and dances, we work with your DJ or band to connect to their system for the best quality audio.
DO YOU OFFER RAW FOOTAGE?In short yes! Lots of our couples want to have more footage from their day in addition to their highlight film. For that reason, we offer a few different options! Your wedding highlight film is a creative edit of all the special moments crafted into a cinematic and artistic video. We include shots like the surroundings at your venue, your guests, details, and any special events you have planned. We mix high-quality audio and visuals we have captured throughout your wedding day to tell your story, such as parts of your vows or speeches. This version makes it easy to share with friends and family and relive your entire day in just a few minutes. You will be the stars of your very own movie. In a full edit of your wedding events, this is where you can watch your full ceremony from start to finish. You also have the opportunity to watch other events such as your first dance, parent dances, toasts, speeches, first looks, the entirety of your vows, and anything else you may desire. Since these moments will only happen once, we always run multiple cameras and audio to make sure nothing is missed. We select all the best angles from these moments and edit them together so you easily watch these special events in full. We get asked all the time about raw footage. We capture anything and everything we can while on location at your wedding; however, the raw footage straight from our cameras can include hundreds of files of short clips and multiple camera angles of the same event in very large file sizes. Most computers may not even be able to view the footage. For this reason, we compress your raw footage into a much easier format for you to view and download in which we call our "FOMO film". When you purchase our documentary-style "FOMO" film, you essentially receive a 2-4 hour video of everything we shot that day, in other words - a glorified Home Video Edit of your special day. We drag all of the footage we shot from the entire day and place it in our Editing Timeline chronologically, and deliver it to you. We will remove horribly shaky, or duplicated shots. Delivered separately from your final Wedding Film. It’s a great way to relive the behind-the-scenes conversations and candid moments of your day.
DO YOU HAVE LIGHTS ON THE DANCE FLOOR?In most cases, we will set up lighting for your reception. Unfortunately, many venues have very dim lighting. We do our best to respect our use of lights and use them only when we need them. We almost never use them for ceremonies, except in rare situations.
HOW LONG DO YOU KEEP A BACKUP OF OUR FOOTAGE?We normally keep your footage backed up for up to 1 year from your wedding. After this, we may delete the raw footage and edited video files from our servers and hard drives. This is one reason why we recommend buying raw footage and downloading all of your content once it is delivered. You should always back up your digital files in a secure place as well.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?Yes! We have liability insurance. We can also provide a certificate of insurance. Simply have your venue coordinator or wedding planner reach out to us and we’ll get it to them as soon as possible.
WHAT IF I WANT MY FINAL VIDEO RE-EDITED?We put a lot of effort into editing an intricately structured film for you. We blend visuals together with audio from your wedding day and music that we have specifically selected based on our artistic choice. We will offer 1 minor editing revision at no extra cost. Any additional or significant changes to your film will require a re-editing fee.
