How big is the team?
We usually have a crew of 1-2 photographers and 1-2 cinematographers. Everyone on the team works together and specializes on different lenses and styles.
What elements are included in the Wedding photography package?
In addition to this, all the soft copies of the images are also provided.
What elements are included in the Wedding cinematography package?
The standard package consists of two videos; first is a traditional 50-60-minute-long film, capturing the best moments of your wedding, including bytes of you and your loved ones narrating your story. The second film is a three to five-minute trailer of all the functions, capturing the highlights.
How is the music for the video selected?
Music and song selection are a joint decision between the client and the editing team. The song titles are usually suggested by the client or the editor and approved by both.
Is it possible to make a trailer to show on the wedding day/reception?
Yes, this service is referred to as “Same Day Edits” and they are a great way to showcase some of the best moments of the wedding instantly. However, this is an expensive process, as extra equipment, setup and editor is required to produce this, which adds to the final cost of the package.
How many pictures are provided in the wedding package?
It’s difficult to determine the exact number of images that will be taken over a typical wedding. However, we aim to shoot approximately 1000-1500 throughout all the functions. All images are coloured, and given to you in a high-resolution JPEG format on a 1tb hard drive, which is provided by you.
Is it possible to bring in another team of photographers/ videographers apart from your team?
Yes, but it is not preferable. You are paying us big bucks to do the job. Save money and hire only one team. The other advantage of this is that all your footage and images will be of the same quality and you don’t have to worry about coordinating with two separate teams.
During a wedding shoot, the stills team and the video team should have harmony and co-ordination in order to get the best results. Although, we prefer handling both together, we are comfortable with handling either depending on the comfort of the client.
Can you explain the concept of a pre wedding shoot?
A pre-wedding shoot is a private photo/video shoot of the couple, shot prior to the wedding that portrays the bond they share with each other. Since wedding is a hectic and stressful time, the couple gets this day off with each other. This shoot can be taken in a casual outfit, which is different from the typical heavy wedding attire. It can also be used in the highlight film or as a separate pre-wedding film, which can be shown during sangeet or on the wedding day. A typical pre-wedding shoot lasts between two-four hours. The clothes / styling / makeup for the pre-wedding shoot is to be arranged by the client.
How do you deliver the raw footage?
Everything that has been shot by us is your property. We do not hold back anything. You get all the RAW videos as well as the final videos on a 1 TB hard drive provided by you.
What are the timelines for the elements?
As per the contract, we deliver everything within 60 to 120 days from the last day of shooting. This means the simpler deliverables like images are delivered within 30-60 days after the wedding and the full films can take about 60-120 days depending on the season workload. Please note, during the wedding season, we can run a little behind on our timelines. The highlight film and trailer can take up to 120-150 days for the delivery.
However, in order to meet the timelines, we require basic documents from you for the highlight film. Document is for the music selection, consisting of sound tracks you want for various sections of the film. A delay in receiving these documents will exponentially push the delivery dates of the highlight film. As a thumb-rule, we expect these from the couple within 30-45 days after the wedding.
Why does it take 60-120 days for the HL video?
Film editing is a tedious and creative process. After seeing hours and hours of footage we select the best of the best shots for the HL film, which is a very time-consuming process. As a thumb-rule, each minute of final edit takes about one day to finalize, from the day the final edit begins. We can assure you that once you see the final result, it will be totally worth the wait!
