Before Your Wedding

How much experience do you have with filming weddings?

I filmed my first wedding as a 19 year old college student - eager to get more experience behind the camera. Since then, I have shot well over 600 weddings over the course of 20+ years. I have also trained many cinematographers and overseen wedding day operations for other wedding video companies. But my favorite thing about all of my experience is that I have been able to partake in wedding celebrations of couples with dozens of different cultural backgrounds, religions, and including same-sex weddings. I can tell you: love is beautiful in all iterations.

How do I book Ellyce Wedding Films?

The first step is to schedule a call, or meeting, so we can talk about your wedding day. Based on that call, we will send you a written quote. Once you have approved the quote, we will draft a contract for your review. And once the contract is executed, you will pay the first installment. At this point, your wedding is booked!

How many payments will I make?

You will make three payments. The first payment is made at the time of booking your cinematographer. The second payment is made two months prior to your wedding day. And your final payment is made one month prior to your wedding day.

Can I add coverage time after we have booked Ellyce Wedding Films?

Yes, you can always add more hours of coverage as late as 48 hours prior to your wedding day. We will send you the invoice for the difference. You can add more hours of coverage within the 48 hours at a premium. Your contract will state the premium rate.

On Your Wedding Day

How long do you need to be there?

It is best practice if we arrive at least one hour before the bride puts on her dress, and for us to leave a half hour after the dance floor opens. You may want to add hours if you have a unique moment happening beforehand or after this time period.

Who will be at my wedding?

Depending on the package you pick, you may have one-to-three videographers on hand. Usually, for the getting ready part of the day, you will only have one videographer present. Everyone on the team is friendly and professional!

How do you capture sound?

We place a small lavaliere mic on the groom during the ceremony. If you have wedding gifts or letters for each other, you can decide if you want audio recorded; we prefer to have audio. During the reception, we plug into the DJ's system. (Confirm with your DJ if you want to be sure!) We always have a backup mic during the ceremony and reception. 

Do we need to feed you?

We do ask that you provide a meal for us at the reception. You do not need to have us sit with your guests unless that is easier for you or the venue. Most venues will have a space dedicated for vendors to eat.

After Your Wedding

Do you pick the music?

Yes, we pick the music for your final videos. We pay to copyright music from a couple of sites. Most popular songs cannot be legally licensed for a reasonable price. If desired, you can look through the websites we use and let us know what you like.

When will I get my videos?

Your videos will be ready between 8-to-12 weeks after your wedding. For some of you asking for several services we may ask for an extra week or two to make sure your videos are spectacular. You can request expedited editing to receive your videos in less than four weeks for an additional cost. Check out the pricing calculator on our pricing page to see how it effects your final cost.
