Do you offer photography?📸 GENERAL
Unfortuantely no — We specialize in videography but can recommend some bad ass photographers who are amazing to work with!
Do you offer drone footage?🚁 GENERAL
Drone piloting has a ton of regulations, laws, tests and insurance requirements that vary from state to state. Along with that, it also takes us away from the wedding and that’s where the real moments are happening.
I recommend either finding a local drone videographer who knows your states drone laws or purchasing drone footage from creators on sites like YouTube or other stock video websites.
How big is the Wild Light team?👨🏽🤝👨🏻 GENERAL
My team is actually just a small group of 5 select videographers including myself.
We’re based out of:
- North Florida (Steve) 👋🏼
- Los Angeles, CA
- Oakland, CA
- Jacksonville, FL
Can we meet our videographer before the wedding?🤳🏻 General
Of course, we love video calls. Plus it’s always a really nice way to put a face to the name and connect with you on a more personal level!
What's your creative process and who picks the music?🎹 GENERAL
I always want my films to reflect my couples taste in music and style so I ask them to send me 8-10 of songs that they love and think would be fun for the video. Of course if you want me to find a song, I totally can! I’ll send some songs that I feel match your wedding and you tell me which one you love the most. Music is super important to the video because it sets the tone and mood, so picking the one that fits you might take some time but will totally be worth it.
What is your turn around time?⏳ GENERAL
I strive to have a QUICK turn around so you’re not having to wait 6 – 8 months enjoy your videos. Most wedding films are completed within 4-5 Months of your wedding date. We also shoot with real super 8 film which has to be mailed off, processed and digitized which takes about a month and a half.
Where can I leave an amazing review for you guys?🖤 GENERAL
What is Super 8?🎞 FILM & VIDEOS
Taken from Wikipedia, “Super 8 film is a motion picture film format released in 1965 as an improvement over the older Double or Regular 8 mm home movie format.”. So basically Super 8 is a type of camera from the late 60’s – 70’s that shoots on real 8mm film that is not only unique looking but also super fucking cool!
Can we have all of the raw video files?📂 FILM & VIDEOS
Sure! I do charge a small fee and just ask that you don’t try and make your own social media edits 😊
If you’re just looking for a longer video that shows the entire day, I do offer The Home Movie. It’s where I go through all of the footage from the day, mildly color correct, and lightly edit it to a long playlist of enjoyable music (that you can pick). This video lets you see the entire day as a long edit and is much more enjoyable than a folder full of unedited video files.
Do you travel? Are there any fees?💳 Travel
We don’t need much, just the basics: food, shelter & travel!
📍 There is no additional charge for weddings within 2 hours of any of our videographers.
🚘 Weddings driving distance but not close enough for a same day drive (3-5 hours), we would just need a hotel for 2 nights.
✈️ We love traveling for our weddings but totally understand that it adds up and can break the budget real quick. Because of that I don’t charge any fee to have my videographer block off their entire weekend. I’ll also cover everything from weekend airport parking/ridesharing, the expensive airport food and drinks, hotel parking, fuel, per diem for the weekend, and any other travel expenses they normally wouldn’t have. I just ask that you cover flight, rental car and hotel for 3 nights.
Why 3 Nights? Anytime we fly we give ourselves a “buffer” day so that if we run into any issues or delays we still have plenty of time to get there before the wedding.
For the hotel, some couples will get a block of rooms for guest/family and will just add an extra room for us but if you would rather not have to worry about booking, I can search the average price of hotels within 15 – 20 minutes of your wedding location, confirm with you and add that amount into the final pricing.
I do prefer to book our own flight and rental car but will always confirm all travel costs before booking anything.
Where are you based?✈️ Travel
We love to travel and do for about 90% of our weddings. Our Videographers are based out of:
- North Florida (Steve)
- Los Angeles (Charles)
- Oakland (Mark)
- Georgia (Robbie & Scott)
