FAQ

Why should we choose you?

There are three questions you should ask yourself when choosing your videographer. Am I excited about this? Do I like these folks? Do I like their work? We’re a husband and wife studio and we notice that this is a huge advantage for us on a wedding day. We see love because together we know love. As a married team, we look back at our own wedding (and wedding video) and have a greater understanding of what’s important to us and our couples. While this is our career and source of income, we have yet to feel like we’ve worked a day. We’re invested in our couples, excited for them, and truly honored to be asked to document such a special time in their lives.

How much of an investment is Captured In Frames?

Wedding videography pricing starts at $3095. Our average couple invests around $3700. We frequently run specials, discounts, and freebies! Feel free to contact us by email or phone for more information on current pricing info.

Are your wedding packages customizable?

Yes! We understand that all weddings are unique and situations vary. For this reason, we offer one all-inclusive starting package with extra glitter and glam available as add-ons. We would love to chat and work together to decide what should be included and what should be tossed!

How does your studio approach a wedding day?

Excellent question! We prefer to treat every wedding day differently because, after all, no two weddings are the same. We generally start a wedding day an hour or two before the bride hops into her dress. From there, we follow the two of you around, to the first look, ceremony, reception,…etc. You get the picture. We typically wrap up a wedding day after all of the main events at the reception have happened and the dance floor has been open for around 1 hour. Here at Captured In Frames, we embrace a very documentary style of film making. We want to capture your natural reactions, rather than staging shots (although sometimes a grand idea strikes and we HAVE to act on it πŸ˜‰ ). That audio that you hear in our edits and not staged or read for the camera. It all happened naturally!

What kind of equipment do we bring to your wedding?

The gear in our bag changes from one wedding to the next. Some wedding films need a drone or stabilization kit. The equipment we bring depends on what will best suit the spaces and the couple! A few things are always included, such as multiple HD cameras, tiny lav mics, and natural light. Being a natural light studio means that we don’t bring extra lighting for the ceremony or reception. We prefer to remain as documentary as possible, i.e. using God’s great light! Added bonus? This allows us to remain extremely mobile to ensure that we capture as many of those special moments as possible!

What is the average turn around time for our wedding films?

The turn around for our wedding films time depends on the style of edit that you choose. Same-day-edits will be delivered at your reception (yay! πŸ™‚ ) while a Short Story is edited and upload roughly 2 weeks after the wedding. Longer films like the feature film or documentary film are typically delivered 4-6 months after the wedding. We promote quality over quantity, and we try to create the best films possible for our couples; however, we understand that some situations require a faster turn around time. Keep us in the loop and we’ll make our best effort to deliver your weddings edits to you by your deadline.

How do we pick the songs for your wedding film?

Each soundtrack is carefully selected based several factors: your personalities, the flow of your wedding day, your ceremony and reception venues, or even the weather. We are open to suggestions; however, we must license all of the music used in our wedding videos. As your wedding day approaches, you’re more than welcome to browse the licensing websites that we use.

Can you recommend other vendors?

Of course! We keep a current list of other vendors available should you ever need suggestions or help with your wedding planning.

Will you travel to my destination wedding?

Yes! In fact we love traveling. Destination weddings often have multi-day timelines and events, so please call or email for custom packages and pricing. We’d love to hear about your destination wedding plans!

What is a same day edit?

Awesome! That’s what it is. A same day edit is a wedding highlight film edited and played at your reception. Everyone at your reception has the opportunity to see and relive your wedding day before the night is over. It’s such a fun experience for you and your guests!
