HOW MANY VIDEOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT OUR WEDDING DAY?
There will always be at least two videographers at your wedding.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU FILMED?
I've been creating films at Owl and Tree for 4 years and filmed a little over 130 weddings.
WHEN'S THE BEST TIME TO BOOK?
I usually get about 300+ requests per year and only book 20ish. So I always recommend reaching out as soon as your thinking about booking.
WHAT'S YOUR LIMIT ON HOURS?
We don't have a limit on hours. We film until we've captured everything we need to tell your story. Generally, from when you're getting ready in the morning, till you formally exit your wedding reception.
DO YOU YOU SETUP DISTRACTING LIGHTING ?
Additional lighting can be bulky, distracting and interfere with your photography. Because of this we've adapted to a shooting style that requires no additional lighting. We utilize the already available natural light during the day and during the reception we utilize our cameras ability to shoot in low lighting.
DO YOU RECORD THE VOWS?
In both collections we give you the vows:)
DO YOU RECORD THE AUDIO FOR THE CEREMONY & SPEECHES?
Yes, in both collections we record the audio for the ceremony and speeches.
HOW DO YOU ENSURE IT'S TOP NOTCH PROFESSIONAL AUDIO?
For the ceremony we use two Lav mic's to capture the audio for both the Bride and Groom, as well the officiator. We take special care to make sure no wires are ever showing. As well, we use an extremely small form factor with our mic setup, so it's neither uncomfortable nor noticeable. If you wish to not use a Lav mic we have other options as well. We record the speeches by plugging directly into the DJ's soundboard.
SO DO YOU PUT A LAV MIC ON BOTH THE GROOM AND THE BRIDE?
No, we've found it works much better to put a Lav mic on only the groom. This Lav mic is able to pick up the audio from both the bride and groom during the ceremony at a clear crisp quality.
WHO ARE THE VIDEOGRAPHERS THAT WILL BE AT MY WEDDING?
Myself and a second shooter will be there. Sometimes thats my amazing wife Alex and sometimes it's one of the few guys I work with on a regular basis. However I'm always personally invested into every film I make.
WILL YOU GET IN THE WAY ALOT?
We do our best to blend in on your wedding day. Our hope is that you would notice us about as much as you would notice your photographer.
HOW DO YOU INTERACT WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHER?
We love working with photographers and do our best to work with them beforehand if needed so everything goes smoothly during your wedding day:)
DO WE GET TO MEET YOU BEFORE THE WEDDING?
Of course! We always try to arrange to meet our brides and grooms beforehand so we can go over the details and just say hi:)
HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING DO I GET MY SHORT FILM?
This can vary, but normally my turn around time is 6-10 weeks for the short film.
I'M A GROWING FILMMAKER LOOKING TO MAKE BETTER FILMS, DO YOU OFFER ANY RESOURCES?
