How do I make a reservation?
The first thing you should do is contact me to see if I’m available and to let me know what kind of services you are interested in. If your date is open, we can schedule a time to meet in person in Tallahassee or do a video call if you are not in town. This way we can meet each other, I can answer your questions, and we can talk about your wedding day and ideas for your films. If you decide to move forward with the booking, I will prepare the contracts for us to sign. I will also send you the information to make the first payment. After receiving the contract and first payment, your wedding date will be reserved!
When do I pay and how does the payment work?
The first payment will be half of the total due and is non-refundable. You date is not reserved until this payment has been received.
The second and final payment will be due at least one month prior to the wedding day. Failure to make this payment will result in the loss of your booking.
The preferred payment method is with personal checks.
What areas do you cover? Would you travel for my wedding?
I provide wedding videography services in the Tallahassee area, the Panhandle and North Florida (Pensacola, Panama City, Destin, Gainesville, Jacksonville, San Agustin, etc), Georgia (Thomasville, Valdosta, Albany, Columbus, Macon, Atlanta), South Alabama (Dothan, Mobile, Montgomery).
I would love to hear about your plans for destination assignments! Send me the information about where you are headed and when, and I’ll get back to you about prices and arrangements.
Weddings within 2 hours from Tallahassee don’t have a travel fee.
How long does it take for you to deliver the final product?
I try to deliver your film within 3 months after the wedding day. Editing is a huge project and it needs a lot of time and dedication. I know you are eager to see your film, but it cannot be done overnight. Remember, this is where the magic happens!
What style of films do you make?
Every film is unique. I use a cinematic approach to create an aesthetic and contemporary wedding video. Live audio, soundtracks and storytelling enhance the footage and create a beautiful and memorable film that will endure through time.
What is the process of having a wedding film made for me?
My first contact with a couple is usually via an e-mail or telephone conversation. However, if after the initial contact you may be interested in contracting a service, I recommend a face-to-face meeting or a Skype chat as the next step. This conversation will let us get to know each other a little bit. This is important because the wedding film will be your story, and I want to get to know you if I’m going to tell it.
After you make a booking, we’ll have a detailed discussion about your wedding plans and we’ll be in touch before the big day, just to confirm all the logistics.
The filming of your wedding day is then done with professionalism and sensitivity.
Next comes the extensive and careful editing process – and within 3 months you’ll receive the final product.
Do you shoot alone or do you have an assistant or second shooter?
For my basic service, you will get one shooter: me!
However, I understand that sometimes you want the detail and visual diversity that a second camera can provide. If you plan on having more content included in your package I usually recommend adding a second shooters to the service. This will guarantee more content and more possibilities in the post-production phase.
While I’m filming, I may have an assistant with me, at no extra cost. If I do bring an assistant I will let you know ahead of time so there will be no surprises on your big day. If you have questions about the differences between one or two shooters, please get in touch. I’d be more than happy to talk you through the differences in detail.
Do you license the music used on your films?
Of course! I use different filmmaking music libraries to license the music for your films, so you will be able to share them in any platform. I don’t use commercial music for my films.
Are you a licensed drone pilot?
Yes, I am a Licensed FAA drone pilot with a part 107 certificate.
FYI only licensed pilots are allowed to get drone footage in commercial events, like a wedding. Be sure to request always a official license to anybody flying drones for commercial purposes.
Will my film feature on your website?
Not all the films I create will feature on my website because I typically only show a select few. I select the films in order to showcase a range of styles, and this is not a value judgment about the quality of your film! Although I hold the intellectual rights to the film, I have no problem with you showing the film anywhere.
How many cameras and what type of equipment do you use?
I use different types of gear during the day, depending on the moment and style of visuals I want to achieve. I shoot with professional Cinema Cameras and DSLR from Canon and Sony, with a variety of pro lenses and pro audio equipment. Sliders, steadycams, tripods, monopods complete the list.
When shooting solo I will record the ceremony and speeches with my main camera and set two extra static cameras on tripods to get a nice variety of angles.
Do you speak Spanish? ¿Habla español?
¡Claro! Spanish is my native language (also Catalan!). I’m happy to cover bi-lingual or Spanish-speaking events.
