What options are there for Video?

We understand that photography and video often get paired together, as they are both visual mediums. We have always had the philosophy that it is best to specialize and master one specific craft. By focusing our energy on photography, we have been able to produce top level images to our clients. Having said that, we also understand the convenience of booking both photography and video at the same time. So, our studio has found the perfect solution, and now offer video in a unique fashion. 

In order to better serve our clients, we have collaborated with Tidal Wedding Films who like our studio as few hand-picked video teams that have always done an amazing job. They know how we work and we know how they work, ensuring everything is streamlined and smooth. You are now able to contract the videography straight through our studio, and all under one contract and bill. As a result you get the benefits of two vendors who specialize in their craft,  while having the convenience and savings of booking them together. 

What's Included?

Included in the video packages are two high-definition cameras (same hours as photography), a 3-6 minute Produced Highlights Video, and all un-produced coverage from throughout the wedding day. That way if you are wanting to watch your entire ceremony uncut or speech, you can. The Highlights Video is the perfect length for frequent rewatching and social sharing, and the additional coverage gives you all of the footage from throughout the day for your archives.

Typically the videographers will stay for the same amount of time as the photographers at the event. The video is ready within 30 business days to share with family and friends :)

Pricing will range from $2500-$5000 depending on the  number of hours, number of videographers, drone work, etc. Please contact us Aaron at 760.271.4853 and we are happy to go over the best video options for you.

When I order a wedding album, how does the image selection work?

When I order a wedding album, how does the image selection work?

You have two options with image selections - use our complimentary selection service (included), or choose out your own images. Here is an explanation of each option:

  • Option A (strongly recommended): "Please choose for me" - Once we receive your order, our design team hand-selects, retouches, and sequences the images to be included, and lays out each spread to best tell the story of the day. This is the easiest way to have a beautiful album in the shortest amount of time.
  • Option B: "I will make my own image selections" - If preferred, after placing your order, you will be the one making the image selections. This involves reviewing and evaluating the entire event photography for album potentials, and choosing out the final images to be included (6 - 8 hour time commitment on average). Your image selections will be considered final, and we will design around your chosen images.

Have you worked with my coordinator or videographer before?

Most likely we have worked together, especially if your coordinator and/or videographer has a well-established reputation within the community. The advantage of being around for 17 years is we have worked with so many excellent vendors! Regardless of whether we have worked together, we work well with everyone. So no matter what, you will be just fine ;) We know how most of the pros work, and they know how we work at this point. We’re able to rely on each other’s experience to make sure the day is stress free for our wedding couple. We also communicate with the coordinator or videographer before the wedding to ensure the process is smooth. There’s definitely less to figure out as the years have gone by!  

For example, Christine of Lavish Weddings is one of the coordinators we work with frequently, having done 28 weddings together to date. She shared her take on working with our company: “I love working with photographers from True because I know they get there early and they’re prepared. They communicate with me ahead of time so we’re always on the same page, and they’re very reliable.  I don’t always have that same experience with new photographers.”

Our goal for our wedding couple is to document the day with amazing photographs. By having great relationships with coordinators like Lavish Weddings, and knowing their approach, it enables us to stay ahead throughout the day. And when working with a videographer outside our studio, sharing the same objective helps us to work together, so you end up with the best of both worlds. Check out some highlights made possible by wonderful vendors we work with, and even some of them in action.
