For more information please visit our FAQ page for helpful tips or contact us for any further questions.
Why do you only take on a limited number of weddings a year?I would love to shoot more weddings as I find them so much fun. However, I also love producing TV shows and presenting on screen- this takes me overseas a lot of the time. I find that working in different fields and continually working with some of the best directors and TV networks in the world keeps me creative and constantly learning new techniques, which I bring to your wedding day. A win-win for both of us.
What’s all the fuss about same day editing?Your wedding day can go by in the blink of an eye with all the running around expected of a bride and groom. We are equipped to edit the pre-wedding and ceremony footage with lightning speed turnaround, so you can show your guests a highlight video that can be played during your reception dinner. It’s an amazing way for you and your guests to unwind and take a moment to look back on your special day. As Cinematographers, this is by far the greatest gift we can give you on your big day.
What do the crew wear?We dress according to your dress code. If it’s a suit and tie, we rock up in our Sunday best. If it’s a beach wedding, we come in shorts and a shirt. Our aim is to blend in with your guests so they feel comfortable (best environment for capturing the memorable moments). Oh and Commando is optional of course hehe
How many people film the wedding?You will have a minimum of two cinematographers plus an editor cutting up your footage for the Same Day Edit. We will be sure to let you know in advance
How long will the video go for?Your Same Day Edit will go for 3-4 minutes. Generally speaking, this is more than enough time to capture the highlights of your special day- plus in my experience, the perfect time to keep the guests wanting more and before their eyes start wandering to the wait staff for another drink.
Your cinematic highlights video goes for around 15 -20 minutes. We don’t set a specific time on our videos as we keep editing until the point that we feel best suits your story. We take hours and hours of footage on your wedding day, and it’s our job to sort through the best parts and bring your story to life.
What’s your style of shooting?Our cinematic style is about letting your story unfold naturally rather then scripting certain scenes. We want to be as minimally invasive as possible, capturing the moments when you don’t even know we are there. We understand that there is nothing worse then a camera in your face.
Was Kanye West arrogant to work with? No, he is extremely professional and to be honest a really nice guy. I partied with him a few times in NYC and Melbourne and believe it or not he was always humble. Was kind of hoping he would punch me in the face when the cameras were rolling, now that’s some good TV.
Do you accept tentative bookings?Unfortunately not. No tentative bookings.
Do you shoot outside of Melbourne?We sure do. We shoot internationally, having done weddings across the seas from Bali, to Hong Kong.
Why should we choose you?Oh no this is the part where I have to sell myself ……..I feel we offer the best package, I honestly believe that. We are the only production company that includes the same day edit as standard when you hire us. We have two cinematographers and no time limit on the wedding day. Above all, we are so passionate about filming- we love it and I feel that our love for shooting really comes across in the finished product. I am a visual story teller and creating your story is a crucial role in a wedding video. I would never put my name on something I wasn’t proud of.
Do we have to feed you?Mum still packs our lunch so don’t worry about us.
What advice on marriage can you give me?Lads listen in carefully, just say YES to everything she says :)
How long until I get my video?You will have a copy of the Same Day Edit straight after your wedding. The Cinematic Highlight video generally takes around 3-4 weeks. The reason for this is because we take our time building your story and making it original. Plus we color grade all your footage so it pops out of the screen and we make sure that your audio is perfect. Believe me it’s a long process!
Can you shoot in 4k?If you have a 4k TV we certainly can shoot your wedding in 4k however there will be extra costs. Let us know.
Why do you only offer one package?We have made this process very easy for you. We feel we have created the perfect package that enables you to utilize your time on other aspects of your wedding that may not run as smoothly without your supervision. For us, we find that options are confusing for any couple. We figure that you can trust us in making the decisions we need in order to create the best possible wedding video we can, to our highest set of standards. It’s our name and our pride and our passion, which means no short cuts on our side.
Do you do photography as well?Nope, we focus purely on Video. We would prefer to keep our highly trained team small and dedicated to the ins-and-outs of all things Video. Personally, I would avoid companies who offer both as a lot of the time they are not experts in either. It’s places like these that have been known to take screenshots of their video footage and use them as photos (whilst charging you for a photographer). Naughty.
Who Chooses The Music?Music plays a big part in your video as it sets the mood. Most couples leave the music choice in our hands as we can select a track that suits your personality and works with our editing style. Word on the street is that it’s illegal to download signed artists from Napster, so we prefer to license original music. Lol
HOW MUCH WILL LICENSING MUSIC COST ME?Zero, naught, zip, nadda… in other words we pay for it.
