Our Approach to Wedding Videography
Most frequent questions and answers
Yes. We must use music for which we have the rights, and unfortunately it is almost impossible to get a license for popular songs. The good news is that these days there is a lot of terrific independent music available for licensing. And better yet, it helps personalize your video with its own custom soundtrack. We do this by finding out what you like and don’t like, then choose suitable music for you that works well with your video.
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 range between 10 and 12 hours.
We can offer photography as an add-on if you are looking for “one stop shopping” and would like your video and photography bundled together. Let us know this is something you’re looking for and we’d be happy to provide you with a custom quote that includes still photography.
Raw footage is the original video and audio that we filmed and recorded on your wedding day. It is unedited, consisting of hundreds of separate video and audio files.
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’ve gone from filming on standard definition mini-DV and delivering on VHS tapes, to filming in gorgeous 4K with online streaming and download. It’s been truly amazing to see how far the technology has come, to the point where the quality rivals what you’d see on the big screen! What hasn’t changed in that time is our belief that for a wedding video to have lasting value, the story must come first.
