01. HOW DO I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE?
I ask for a 30% deposit and a signed contract to officially secure your wedding date. This is an important one, because often, I’ll receive same-date inquiries. I handle these on a first-book basis, so if you’re ready to move forward, try your best not to wait!
02. DO YOU OFFER DRONE COVERAGE?
Yes! Drone coverage in included in every wedding package I offer.
Please note if your wedding or elopement is in a national park, near a military base or airport, in a no-fly zone, or on a day that we’re experiencing unfortunate weather, I will not be able to fly. It’s important to abide by laws and no fly zones to protect our lands, and make sure everybody is safe. Hate to break down the rules and kill the mood, because drones are fun, but these things are super important :)
03. DO YOU TRAVEL?
Absolutely! I’m based in Colorado, but have filmed weddings around the U.S. and Internationally. I do keep my travel limited and only take a small handful of destination weddings per year.
04. HOW DO YOU HANDLE TRAVEL EXPENSES AND WHAT DO THOSE LOOK LIKE?
Travel expenses apply to any wedding further than 100 miles from Denver. (If your wedding is within 100 miles, woohoo you’re in the clear!) Because travel expenses differ so much by location, I charge travel separately from my packages as opposed to a flat rate. Based on personal experience, I think it’s the most fair and straightforward for both of us, so that you know exactly where your money is going. If your destination is within driving distance for me, you’ll be responsible for my mileage and lodging. Should I need to hop on a plane , I ask that flights, transportation, and lodging please be covered for myself and my second videographer. I cover any other expenses along the way (food, tolls, parking, etc. so there won’t be any surprise bills coming your way).
If you want to get a rough estimate of these expenses before inquiring, I suggest researching flights from DIA, as well as rental cars and/or lodging in your area to incorporate this into your budget. Pretend like you’re planning a trip to go visit a friend, this is the exact same process! To make the experience as stress free as possible, I book everything so that you don’t have to, and of course, all numbers are run by you before booking so that we’re always on the same page. Travel expenses are invoiced separately and due at the same time as your final wedding payment.
I know this is a lot of info to digest, but don’t stress! I’ll walk you through every step of the way so that you can continue to focus on planning your wedding.
05. CAN WE PICK OUR OWN MUSIC?
Unfortunately, no, but I strongly believe it’s for the better. There are a few reasons as to why this is, both for law purposes and creative purposes. I license all of the music I use in my films, and often, most mainstream music isn’t available to license. Picking music is also a huge part of my creative process, as it’s really the driving force behind your film and where I draw a lot of emotional inspiration from (aside from your love obvi). During your wedding and after spending some quality time with you both, I get a good feel for the type of music you’re drawn to. I use that as my inspiration as I start my music search, while also making sure my choices reflect who I am as an artist. A long-winded answer, but important nonetheless.
06. DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes! If your venue requires proof of vendor insurance (which some do) just let me know and I’m happy to send you my certificate of coverage.
