Pricing

What does it cost to film a wedding?

My most basic package starts at $3,500 and gives you a full day of coverage with two vidoegraphers, a feature length film and a 2-5 minute highlight reel. From there you can add highlight reels of different lengths, extra hours, drone cinematography, extra coverage - you name it! Please reach out to talk about a custom tailored package. Every wedding is unique, and so I price it that way!

The Process

How does it all work?

The first step is reach out to me and set up a time to talk! We customize a package with coverage and videos that are right for you. Then I have you sign a contract and make a deposit to hold your date - this guarantees I don't book someone else, and also holds me accountable to you in terms of what I am delivering. The final payment is due one week before the wedding day. You can expect your final film no more than three months after your wedding day!

Do you travel?

I do! I've been all over New England - mostly in the Portland, ME and Boston, MA areas, but I do go down to Cape Cod, central and western MA as well. Reach out to me about your wedding location and I will give you a quote on travel costs.

What's your style?

My background is in documentary film, so working with me day of is pretty hands off in terms of being an unobtrusive presence. I let the photographer run the show, grabbing what I need to capture the authentic feel of the day. I direct when necessary to make sure I have the material I need to tell your story in a beautiful, visual way, but otherwise I try to make sure you can be present on your special day. You're not movie stars and actors and I want you to be able to feel natural, present, and like you're on your wedding day - not a parading dog show.

What else can you provide?

I have a wonderful group of videographers and licensed drone pilots in my network to help you get the coverage you want and need. My package includes myself and a second shooter, but do you want a third cinematographer? Do you want drone coverage? Let me know!

What about music?

For copyright purposes I use liscence free music from several websites. I work closely with my couples to get a sense of their aesthetic - being there day of, listening to the songs they choose for their ceremony, first dance etc. to make an informed and thoughtful choice for music. I also love weaving in audio from the ceremony and speeches to make your story come alive.

What kinds of weddings have you filmed?

I've filmed Jewish, Hindu, Nigerian, Catholic and non-denominational weddings as well as same sex couples. My background in documentary, and experience shooting weddings for the past six years, allows me to think on my feet and be prepared so I don't miss any special moments no matter what kind of ceremony you're having.
