FAQ

01. HOW DO I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE?

We ask for a $250 deposit and a signed contract to officially secure your wedding date. This is an important one, because often, we'll receive same-date inquiries. We handle these on a first-book basis, so if you're ready to move forward, try your best not to wait!

02. DO YOU OFFER DRONE COVERAGE?

Yes! Drone coverage is in included in every wedding package we offer.

Please note if your wedding or elopement is in a national park, near a military base or airport, in a no-fly zone, on a day that we're experiencing unfortunate weather, or if the wedding is far behind schedule, we will not be able to fly. It's important to abide by laws and no fly zones to protect our lands, and make sure everybody is safe. 

03. DO YOU TRAVEL?

Absolutely! We are based in Texas, but are open to film weddings around the U.S. and Internationally. 

04. HOW DO YOU HANDLE TRAVEL EXPENSES AND WHAT DO THOSE LOOK LIKE?

Travel expenses apply to any wedding further than 100 miles from Texarkana, TX. (If your wedding is within 100 miles, woohoo you're in the clear!) Contact us for a custom quote. 

05. CAN WE PICK OUR OWN MUSIC?

Unfortunately, no, but we strongly believe it's for the better. There are a few reasons as to why this is, both for law purposes and creative purposes. We license all of the music we use in our films, and often, most mainstream music isn't available to license. Picking music is also a huge part of our creative process, as it's really the driving force behind your film and where we draw a lot of emotional inspiration from (aside from your love story). During your wedding and after spending some quality time with you both, we get a good feel for the type of music you're drawn to. We use that as our inspiration as we start our music search, while also making sure my choices reflect who we are as artists. 

06. DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes! If your venue requires proof of vendor insurance (which some do) just let us know and we'll be happy to send you our certificate of coverage.

07. WHAT IS INVOLVED IN MY WEDDING FILM?

Each wedding film is edited in a fashion unique to you and your wedding day. During your coverage time, we will film the special and candid moments happening during your day. We use audio recording devices to capture ceremonies, letter readings, special messages, etc. Each clip is carefully chosen and color graded to give a cinematic feel to your film. A minimum of 24 accumulative hours will be spent crafting the perfect video that represents the magic of your wedding day.

08. HOW LONG IS THE TURNAROUND TO RECEIVE OUR WEDDING FILM?

You will receive a 30-60 sec teaser within 10 days of your wedding. The delivery of your full wedding film will take up to 6 weeks from wedding date.
