FAQ

WHAT IS A SAME DAY EDIT
The SDE is footage of the preparation and ceremony edited into a one-song highlight video ready to play within a couple of hours into the reception. This is a great way for couples to sit back and watch the important moments playback alongside their friends and family.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
Tools are only as good as the person using them. With that in mind, we use a variety of  gear to capture your day in cinematic form. To name a few: multiple HDSLRs, dollies, sliders, glidecams, tripods, and even a camera crane.
WHO PICKS THE MUSIC
We do, but we’ll select the music based on your style and how the day unfolds. We prefer to not use overplayed music that may be commonly selected for other wedding videos, making yours unique. Of course, we’ll take your lead on ideas and emotional preference, then go from there.  Additionally, there are a bunch of music rights and legal stuff we look out for.  Don’t worry, we license the music for all of our films.   By doing so, we support and respect the artists that make the music and that makes everyone happy.
IS THE HIGHLIGHT FILM STRICTLY 5 MINUTES?
Not at all. This is an approximate time. It all depends on the events of the day.
IS THE FEATURED FILM STRICTLY 15 MINUTES?
Not at all. Same with the Highlight Film, it depends on the events of the day. We’ll be sure to include all the special moments that tell your story.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
We are primarily journalistic with a smidge of visual cinematics. Our cinematographers let things unfold by themselves as to document your day in it’s purest form. If there is time we’ll get some ‘glam shoots’ to top it all off.
DO I HAVE TO FEED YOU?
You don’t HAVE to feed us, but we sure hope you do. The last thing we want is Betty White (Snickers candybar reference) documenting your reception. Just let us know ahead of time so we can take a lunch break.
CAN I HAVE A DISCOUNT?
Every package is customized to deliver the best quality and affordability without cutting anything out in the back end. We take great pride in being accessible to every couple searching for a videographer.  With that said, discounts will not be considered.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY WEDDING FILM?
Same Day Edits will be online the following day to share with anyone and everyone. Highlight and Featured Films typically take between 4 to 6 months to start the editing process depending, on our current work load.
YOUR PACKAGES DON'T OFFER DVDS or BLU-RAYS, WHY?
DVD and Blu-ray discs are a thing of the past and will one day be obsolete. DVDs use low resolution which defeats recording in HD and Blu-ray was never completely adopted. We provide you with HD files that are PC and MAC friendly that can stream online or on your personal device. If you really want DVDs or Blu-rays we do offer them as an add-on.
