• Do you offer photography?
    πŸ“Έ GENERAL

    Unfortunately no — We specialize in videography but can recommend some badass photographers who are amazing to work with!

  • Do you offer drone footage?
    🚁 GENERAL

    Drone piloting involves numerous regulations, laws, tests, and insurance requirements that vary from state to state. Additionally, operating a drone takes us away from the wedding, where the real moments are happening.

    I recommend either finding a local drone videographer who knows your state’s drone laws or purchasing drone footage from creators on sites like YouTube or other stock video websites.

  • How big is the Wild Light team?
    πŸ‘¨πŸ½β€πŸ€β€πŸ‘¨πŸ» GENERAL

    My team is just a small group of 4 select videographers including myself.

    We’re based out of:

    • Panama City Beach/30A, FL
    • Los Angeles, CA
    • Jacksonville, FL
  • Can we meet our videographer before the wedding?
    🀳🏻 General

    Of course, we love video calls! Plus, it’s a great way to put a face to the name and connect with you on a more personal level.

    Let’s schedule a call!

  • 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 songs that they love and think would be fun for the video. Of course, if you’d like me to find a song, I can do that too! I’ll send some songs that I feel match your wedding, and you can 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 be totally worth it.

  • What is your turnaround time?
    ⏳ GENERAL

    I strive for a quick turnaround so you’re not waiting 6-8 months to 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, taking about a month and a half.

  • Where can I leave an amazing review for you guys?

General Questions
FILM & VIDEO
  • What is Super 8?
    🎞 FILM & VIDEOS

    Taken from Wikipedia, β€œSuper 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.”. Β 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?
    πŸ“‚ 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 a Home VideoΒ  This is like one of those nostalgic home videos your parents would make back in the 90’s / 2000’s. It includes your Vows, toasts, bouquet toss, cake smashing and any other moments the day has to offer! These videos can run between 60 – 90 minutes so gather on the couch, make some popcorn and get comfy!

    *Just a heads up: The video kicks off with a single intro song. Then it switches to the raw, in-camera audio for the duration.

  • Do you travel? Are there any fees?
    πŸ’³ Travel

    We don’t need much, just the basics: food, shelter & travel!

    (Steve) I’m based out of Panama City Beach, FL
    My team videographers are based out of Los Angeles, Oakland, &Β Jacksonville, FL.

    πŸ“ There is no additional charge for weddings within a 2-hour driving distance from me or my team of videographers.

    🚘 For weddings that are within driving distance but too far for a same-day trip (3-5 hours away), we would need a hotel for 2 nights.

    ✈️  We love traveling and understand that costs can add up quickly. Because of this, I don’t charge any fee for myself or one of my videographers to block off our entire weekend for your wedding. I only ask that you cover the flight, rental car, and hotel for 2/3 nights.


    Why 3 Nights? β€”Depending on the location of your wedding, we sometimes need to fly, especially for longer travel days. We do this to allow for a buffer day so that if we encounter any issues or delays, we still have plenty of time to get to the wedding.


    For the hotel, some couples will get a block of rooms for guests/family and will just add an extra room for us. However, if you’d rather not 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 to the final pricing.

    I do prefer to book our own flight and rental car but will always confirm all travel costs before booking anything.
