FAQ

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
We are based in Melbourne, Australia. We film all over Victoria including the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula and Dandenong Ranges. We are also available worldwide.

WHERE CAN WE MEET YOU?
We are happy to meet you anywhere half way between both of us or at your favourite coffee spot!

WILL IT BE YOU FILMING ON THE DAY OR SOMEONE ELSE?

It will always be us (Alanna + Francesco) filming on your day, unless one of us is extremely unwell… then we will arrange for a contractor (someone we know and trust) to replace us for the day. You will be notified in advance if this is the case.

HOW DO YOU WORK WITH OUR PHOTOGRAPHER?

We believe that getting along with your photographer is absolutely integral to the day going smoothly as we all need to work together as a team. We always make an effort to reach out to the photographer in advance and introduce ourselves if we don’t know them.

WHAT DOES WEATHER AND REGULATION PERMITTING MEAN FOR DRONE FOOTAGE?

We cannot fly the drone in high winds, rain or within 5kms of an airspace. We also cannot fly the drone within some parts of the Melbourne CBD. We may also not be able to fly the drone due to the timing of the day if you have a jam packed schedule. So please keep that in mind.

WHO EDITS THE VIDEOS?

We (Alanna + Francesco) are the ones who edit your videos based on our understanding of what was most important to you on the day and the big moments that we know you’ll want to look back on forever.

DO I GET TO CHOOSE THE MUSIC?

There are a lot of factors that effect great wedding music. For example we choose non lyrical songs for the main films because we cut audio throughout. We also try to choose songs with a good beat or peaks and troughs to convey the emotion of the day. Because the song effects the editing process we would love for you to trust that we know what will work best. We only use professional, licensed music. If, however choosing the music is something that is important to you, please be in touch and we will do our best to accomodate you!

DO YOU OFFER THE RAW FOOTAGE?
We believe in the power and art of filmmaking to creatively capture your day, however you can add raw footage of the ceremony and speeches should this be important to you. Simply email us to find out more.

WHAT IF WE’RE NOT REALLY SURE WHAT TO DO IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
The good news is that you don’t have to worry about a thing! We will either be filming behind the scenes of what you are doing throughout the day, or we will be there to guide you during your photo sessions if you feel lost. We love to try new things so if we have some fun ideas for shots we will let you know in advance. If there are particular shots that you want to incorporate then definitely let us know as that is all part of the fun!


DO YOU INCLUDE AUDIO OF THE VOWS AND SPEECHES IN OUR FILMS?

Yes. For the main wedding film we include snippets of your vows, speeches, reading letters and first look if you are choosing to do that. For the teaser we don’t include any audio snippets. It is just footage edited to music.

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR FILM?
You will receive your teaser within 1-2 weeks and the full wedding film within 10-12 weeks.

DO YOU OFFER PHOTOGRAPHY AS WELL?
We don’t offer photography but please get in touch with us and we can recommend some amazing photographers!
