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 planning the wedding ceremony, one big decision is, “What time should we start?” Because the ceremony time dictates the schedule for the rest of the day, there are several factors to consider.

1. Sunset. Sunset time is one of the most important things to consider! As a general rule, the ceremony should start well before sunset, and end at least one hour before the sun goes down. This ensures that you will still have quality light after the ceremony, which is important for romantic portraits together, as well as family photos.

2. Reception. Length of the reception is another thing to consider. An earlier ceremony start time gives room for a nice long party afterwards :) You’ll want to leave plenty of time to accommodate dinner, dancing, and any other traditions/event you want to include.

3. Venue Rules. Most venues have a mandatory end time. Your venue may also have a strict ceremony time. If your venue’s required ceremony window is less than one hour before sunset, you might want to consider doing a “first look.” This will allow the majority of the couple’s portraits and wedding party photos to be done before the ceremony, and ensure that you have beautiful photos in the best available light.

If you have specific questions about your wedding ceremony, and how it will pertain to your photography timeline, please feel free to contact us!

Although we can’t control the weather, we have learned to treat everything like an opportunity. Even when the forecast shifts in an unexpected direction, we choose to seize the day, whatever it may bring. If it does rain while we are photographing, we will take it and make sweet batch of lemonade :)

Especially on the wedding day, there’s something thrilling about running headfirst into the rain, and capturing the beauty of nature in unexpected ways. Once you see the potential a rainy day holds, you just might find yourself hoping for raindrops!

Kristin and Ryan possess a stunning image that few other couples have. This photograph was taken in Colorado at 5,500 elevation. Being that both our camera Kristin and Ryan's umbrella were both metal, it wasn't our brightest idea. But since we all survived, it sure made for an amazing picture. We photographed 100 frames in about 20 seconds to precisely capture this bolt of lightning.

Yang and Kaisu had shifting weather patterns on their big day, and took every photo op in stride. This resulted in a breathtaking collection of photos, like this candid shot. The beautiful, floral framing alone would have made a nice image, but the rain falling in the background really kicked it up a few notches :)

Jenn and Nick's' wedding started off with bright, golden rays of sun during their day at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club. However, an unexpected blanket of fog quickly set in. Working within these conditions, we backlit Jenn and Nick, and captured the ambience of the moment.
