Our Approach to Wedding Video

Preparation

Before recording the first frame of footage we know exactly what we will film, how we will film it, and where we need to be for every big moment.​

Cinematography

Using the classic language of cinema helps ensure your wedding video will become a timeless classic, and not feel dated in a few years.

Audio

There really is no wedding film without great sound! We place mics where needed and take audio feeds from the house system and DJ/band.

Lighting

We use lights at the reception for speeches and dancing. But only the minimum needed. We want to preserve the ambience just as you've planned it!

Vendors

We enjoy working with other vendors! Prior to the wedding, we reach out to the photographer, DJ, and wedding planner to coordinate our efforts.

Transparent Pricing

We offer maximum flexibility in options and transparency in pricing to make choosing your perfect wedding film easier than ever.

It really depends upon your wedding day schedule, and which events you wish us to film. We arrive 30-60 minutes early to set up, and depart a half hour after coverage ends. Full day wedding coverage would typically be about 10 hours. If you just wanted your ceremony filmed that would likely need only 1-2 hours.

Yes we do. We pay to copyright music from a number of websites. Most popular songs are either far too expensive or are unavailable to license.  If you wish, you can look through the music catalogues from the sites we use and let us know what you like.

Raw footage is the original video and audio we filmed and recorded on the wedding day. It is unedited, consisting of hundreds of separate video and audio files.

Full Ceremony or Reception videos match the length of the actual event. A 20 minute ceremony will have a full ceremony video that is 20 minutes long. Speeches that lasted 30 minutes will have a 30 minute video. Because we use more than one camera and multiple mics, full length videos are fully edited to show the best camera angle and use the best audio source for any given moment.

Cinematic Films are documentary-style highlight videos. A Cinematic Film shows the best moments from the wedding day and tells the story of the bride and groom.

Our turnaround time is normally within 3 months. Videos from weddings later in the year might take a little longer. Excellence takes time!

We pride ourselves on having good working relationships with photographers. We understand that photo and video have to work well together. Positive collaboration is always mutually beneficial.

Dream Day Films was established in 2001. Since that time we have filmed hundreds of weddings.
