1. How long have you been in business and how did you become a wedding cinematographer? Great question. Ive been in business, full time documenting weddings, since 2003. I graduated with a Film and Video degree from Georgia State University in 1995 and have been working in the industry ever since. I became a cinematographer right after my wife and I got married in 2003. I knew I wanted to work for myself and knew that I could offer a wonderful product to brides looking for a professionally documented video.
2. We love your services, portfolio, testimonies and everything sounds fantastic. Can you tell me what sets you apart from other cinematographers? I think what sets us apart from other cinematography companies is that Im truly passionate about documenting the best wedding possible for my clients. I love hearing your story and what details are involved for your special day. Im quick to answer emails, phone calls and most importantly, edit your video in a timely manner for you and your family.
3. This all sounds so wonderful, are we going to be able to afford this? Yes you are. And I say this because money well spent on a professional cinematographer like myself, is something that you will not regret doing. When you have danced your first dance and spent a wonderful night filled with family and friends, the two things that you are going to have to remember your wedding day by are your photos and video. Pictures are great to have but a well documented wedding video is priceless.
4. Who do you work best with? I work well with just about anyone. Maybe its because Im a Taurus and am very laid back but Im very professional and work well with all vendors. Most of my referrals come from vendors that Ive work with over the past 13 years.
5. Do you have a second shooter and back up equipment? I use a second shooter during most of my ceremonies but it really depends on which package that you select. Some packages have three shooters and some just two. Yes, I do have back up equipment.
6. Will you work with the vendors that Ive already found? Absolutely I will. I dont have any problem working with vendors that you have already spent time picking out.
7. Do you take credit cards and do you have a payment plan? Yes and yes. I accept all major credit cards. I will send you an invoice from www.paypal.com. Im flexible with my payment plans. Traditionally I require a $1,200.00 retainer fee with half of your remaining balance being due three weeks before your wedding day and your final payment being due once I start to edit your video.
8. Do you have liability insurance? Yes.
9. This sounds like everything we are looking for. What is the next step in booking you for our wedding? Perfect. Your next step is to contact me either by calling my studio or emailing me at [email protected] This way we can go over in more detail your wants and desires for your wedding video.
10. Can we contact some of your previous clients? You sure can. I actually recommend that. Feel free to contact me and Ill be more than happy to provide those for you. In the meantime, please visit my Testimonial page to read over some great reviews from my previous clients.
11. We have a few more questions. May I contact you further to go over a few things? Yes you may.
