OUR FIRST REPLY

COMMUNICATION WORKS BOTH WAYS

You’ll usually hear back from us within the first 24 to 48 hours. We can be traveling for work and away from our email, so if you feel we’re taking to long you can also message us through our socials.

First of all, we’ll let you know if we’re available to shoot your wedding. We accept a limited number of weddings each year, to make sure we fully dedicate ourselves to every single one.

If we’re available we’ll send you our presentation with the various options, or a bespoke quote if needed.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR VISION

SOMETIMES EMAILS AREN’T ENOUGH

We feel it’s important to have a quick call with all our prospect clients. We understand sometimes clients just like to put a face to a name, but a quick call can be so much more productive to understand how we can work together.

Whether you have unique desires for your special day or seek a perfect alignment with your vision, we’re here to craft an emotional masterpiece that resonates with your heart’s deepest wishes.

BRINGING IT TO LIFE

WE’LL GUIDE YOU ALONG THE WAY

We want to create real and unique imagery for each couple that works with us. We want to capture your true essence and the feelings you had during your wedding day.

YOU SET THE TONE

You chose the location, you brought your family and friends, and you’ll set the mood for your wedding. We just want you to have fun with your friends and family and overall just enjoy your wedding.

WE MAKE YOU SHINE

We’ll guide you throughout the day, making sure we get the best out of every moment, planned or spontaneous. We’ll give brief directions or pointers to break the ice, but only as a tool to make sure your personality shines through our lenses – there’s no need for dramatic posing or cinematic acting.

A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE FOR UNIQUE COUPLES

We’ll retell the story of your wedding through our vision – an aesthetic inspired by cinema and fashion, with an editorial approach. You’ll re-live your day, from the big moments to the small unseen details, in a fully immersive experience.

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL
QUESTIONS?

We deliver your photos & films on an online gallery, making it easy to share with your friends and family. This also allows you to download everything for safekeeping.

We’re always looking to capture the essence and mood of a wedding – we believe that each wedding is unique.
We like to keep things simple and try not to intervene during the day. We don’t pose or direct our couples too much and we don’t fabricate moments for the films. We can, however, offer some pointers for specific moments just to get the best out you.

Yes, we use drones. You’ll find some drone footage in most of our films, but we approach drones the same way we do our regular cameras. It’s a tool to tell a story. We use drone footage mainly to show a location or provide context to our films.

For weddings happening in Portugal we have flat rates to some of the most common destinations. Other destinations or events that span across multiple days are calculated per each case.

For international weddings we have to check flights and accommodation to make an estimate.

Depending on the type of films you chose in your package, we aim to deliver something within the ranges stated in the package you chose, but we may deliver something shorter or longer, if we feel the story needs it.

For photos we aim to deliver somewhere between 800-1000 edited high-res photos.

Each package has a number of hours of coverage. We feel that usually 8 to 10 hours is more than enough to get everything we need. The time we stay at a wedding is not an indication of how long the wedding will take, it’s just how long we’ll actually be there. You can still have fun and enjoy your time with your friends and family after we leave – you just have to plan and decide what’s important for the film.

You can always add more time if needed.

For typical full day weddings we’re expecting to sit down and have dinner at some point in the day. Although we don’t have to sit with your guests, we’d appreciate if this is taken care of with the catering. The ideal time of our meal is at the same time you’re having yours – that way we don’t lose anything important are we’re ready to get back to work as soon as you’re finishing your meal.

We don’t need the full speeches for our films, so we try to record the audio and then film some segments of the speaker and the crowd reactions. If this is something the couple really wants to be filmed in its entirety, we recommend that they book the “Full Speeches” addon. That way we’ll record it in full, with two cameras, and deliver it edited in a separate film.
Please also note that, as we explain in the question above, if the speeches happen during dinner (specially between courses) we may not be there to film it.

We travel quite a bit during the summer so editing can take longer during the wedding season, but we pick it up fast by the last quarter. This means that the waiting time will not be the same for a wedding that happens in May or a wedding that happens in September, but on average delivery takes somewhere between 4 to 8 months to deliver the films.

Photography is usully faster and you can expect your gallery in a matter of weeks.

We welcome any creative input you might have about your wedding film. However, our creative workflow implies making many different decisions on each moment of the pipeline, throughout the time we spend thinking about each film, finding the story and editing it. This includes choosing the perfect shot, the perfect moment to make a cut, the perfect song and the perfect bit of dialogue. Due to this process, it’s impossible to involve every couple in every moment or in every creative decision – there simply would be no time. That is why any creative input you might have is welcomed before we start working on your film, and changes after the film is ready are minimal (replacing or removing a shot here or there).

Music is a very important component in our films. We’ll try to gauge your musical style by the songs you choose for specific moments during the wedding day, and you’re free to send us a playlist of songs you like beforehand, but we’re limited to using songs we can license for your film. These are incredible songs that you won’t hear on the radio, and will be forever associated with your wedding film.
