Q + A
Q: Where are you located? Do you travel?
A: We’re based in Lancaster, PA and available for travel worldwide. We don’t charge any travel fees within three hours of Lancaster, PA. That’s right folks! For weddings further afield, we’ll simply ask that you cover an overnight stay. We’re down to go just about anywhere, so for destination weddings and adventure elopements, please reach out with more info so we can discuss a custom quote. No matter what, we aim to keep travel fees simple and as small as possible.
Q: How will you approach filming my wedding day?
A: Folks have described our vibe as chill and calming. Preparation is key - we spend the time getting to know you and your plans in advance so that we can be more open to intuition and spontaneity on your wedding day. We let events unfold naturally and we won’t direct or pose you except maybe a couple of little prompts during portrait time (when we’re alone with just the two of you and your photographers). For most of the day, we’ll just be doing our thing and you won’t really know we’re there. We’re not afraid to mix it up on the dance floor to get some badass party footage though!
Q: What is your pricing like?
A: Every wedding day is different, so we offer custom options to suit a wide range of plans and budgets. We’re laid back, easy to talk to, and absolutely love to be a friendly resource. Even if you’re just starting to explore video options or aren’t sure if you can afford us, or don’t know exactly what you might want yet. We work with folks with all sorts of plans, venues, and budgets. Drop us a line and we’ll schedule a time to connect and chat more about your celebration! Just to give you a general idea, full day wedding coverage with two filmmakers currently at $3900 and elopements and intimate weddings with one filmmaker start at $2800.
Q: How will you work with my photographer?
A: We embrace working collaboratively with all of our couples and vendors. We especially love photographers though! We always reach out to the photographer to say hey before a wedding.
If you’re still searching for a particular vendor, please let us know and we can recommend some of our favorite peeps. We also highly recommend checking out any of our fellow vendors who participate in Catalyst Wedding Co. and Equally Wed’s vendor directories.
Q: Do you have insurance?
A: Most definitely! Let us know if your venue requires us to provide them with a certificate of insurance (COI for short) and we’ll send it right over.
Q: Do you require a retainer to book our date?
A: Yep, in order to reserve your date on our calendar, we require a signed contract and 50% retainer. The remaining 50% payment is due 30 days before your wedding date. If you’d like to split that up into a few smaller payments, that’s ok too.
Q: How do you accept payments?
A: I accept debit/credit card payment via Square! Once we have a date/time picked out for you, I’ll email you an online invoice. You’ll click the button to pay, enter your payment info, submit, and we’ll be set! If you’d rather pay by check, let me know & we can definitely work that out!
Q: How can we share our films?
A: We host all of our short films on Vimeo so you can easily share them to your heart’s content.
Q: Do we get all of the footage?
A: Yes! Every collection includes all of the raw footage from your celebration. Most videographers don’t include this, or it’s an additional charge. But here’s the thing. Many of those clips won’t make it into your edited films, but might be special to you now or in the future for reasons we can’t know or anticipate. Just like those old home movies on VHS or your iPhone, we want you to have all of that footage for posterity. Also, just FYI, you can always purchase additional edits from us after the wedding (e.g. as an anniversary gift).
Q: How long will it take to receive our films?
A: For weddings and elopements, you can expect to receive a sneak peek film within a week of the wedding! Our artistic highlight films take longer to put together, usually around 4-6 months. We know you can’t wait to see your films and we’re so excited to share them when they’re ready!
Q: We love your work and you sound pretty ok in general! How can we book Love More for our wedding?!
A: Yay! First, you’ll head over to our contact page to say hey so we can schedule a time to chat. Once we’ve heard more about your wedding plans and what’s most important for you, we’ll send you a few different collection options. Once you choose an option that you like, just send me an email and let us know. We’ll send you a contract and invoice to review, and once we receive your payment and signed contract, boom, your date will be booked!
