WEDDING FILMS

 
 

Should I get a wedding videographer?

I know a wedding is a big investment in time and money, so you will have to make decisions. But remember that your wedding day is not going to last forever and the only thing that will stay from this whole investment are the images. And trust me, films are the most vivid memory you will have, full of sounds and movements that allows you to go back in time.

Through your wedding film, you will be able to see your guests’ reactions and a few details you may not be able to perceive in your busy day as a bride and groom. It is your chance to re-live this stage of your life when you miss it, designed to provide lots of laughs and lots of tears for you and future generations.

Even though photography is extremely important, it will never replace a high-quality wedding film. Those are two very different treasures you will never regret having.

I don’t feel comfortable in front of the cameras.
Should I still get a wedding videographer?

That is a very common feeling, where most of my clients don’t feel comfortable in front of the cameras. Don’t worry, I know how you feel, and I don’t expect you to perform.
As an experienced videographer I’ll guide you in a few specific moments, but what we most want is that you enjoy your day, so the natural beauty of love and happiness will appear without pressure. Most of the time we will be in the background seeking candid images, where you won’t even feel our presence.

What do I get on my wedding film package?

What is included depends on the wedding film package you choose. The most popular one includes a high-quality storytelling film (15-20min), highlight video (5min) + snippet for social media (1min). All packages include music licensing, professional colour grading and complementary still frame gallery.

You can also include some add-ons such as full ceremony video, full speeches, and aerial footage.

Please get in touch to receive our standard packages and pricing list. We can also personalise a package specific to your needs.

Do you do wedding photography?

Despite being a videographer and photographer, I wouldn’t be able to perform or direct both at the same time at a wedding. It means a risk of missing important moments and compromising quality. That is why I’ve decided to specialise in wedding films and be fully committed to what I most love. The only moment where I do photos and films at the same time is for family sessions, where I can easily manage the time and repeat an action, if necessary.

I’m more than happy to recommend amazing wedding photographers that I trust, and I know will deliver a stunning result as well. Let us know in case you need it.

Should I include drone images in my wedding film?

Aerial footage is great to show where your wedding took place and the whole landscape around. The scenes will be included in your film, combined with a variety of angles to create an amazing cinematic style.

We only don’t recommend using it during the ceremony as we are talking about loud and distracting equipment. We really want to keep the focus exclusively on you too with no disturbance.

You can choose a package where it is included or add at any package you want.

Should I get two videographers?

Your wedding deserves the best videography coverage, that is why we recommend two videographers to guarantee multiple angles and reaction shots of family members. Also, it allows us to create better transitions to have a more dynamic wedding film.

It is especially recommended at the ceremony, where it is essential to capture things happening at the same time, such as the reaction of the groom and guests while the bride comes in.

What is cover in my storytelling film?

The storytelling film covers all the wedding taking the best of each moment to create a unique film that tells in a sensitive manner, the story of your wedding day. We’ll not only document it, but we will also create a cinematic, fun and beautiful film that is pleasant to watch. We are also proud of giving full attention to the audio, extracting the very best of it, including vows and the most special ceremony speeches.

It is usually 15-20 minutes long, but if we feel it would be better to have a few minutes more, we will do it with no extra charge. We still offer a full ceremony film if you want to include this in your package, but the one my clients most treasure is storytelling films.

Can I request changes in my wedding film?

Once you receive the videos you are more than welcome to request some changes, so if you really miss anything else and I have the footage to include it, I will be happy to do it. The most important thing is that you feel satisfied and receive a real treasure from this day.

How long does it take to get my wedding film?

In approximately 7 weeks from your wedding, the highlight video, approx. 5 min. long, will be available to be watched online in a private link. The storytelling film, 15-20min. long, takes up to 10 weeks to be ready.

This is the maximum time frame and we often get it ready earlier. The last version of the videos is delivered in USB via postcode.

Where are you based?

Le Birck Films is based in Adelaide, but also available for worldwide weddings and all over Australia. Travel fees varies depending on locations.

How can I guarantee my date?

We require a non-refundable 30% deposit upon booking to secure your date and this is deducted from the chosen package. The remaining balance can be cash or direct deposit up to a week prior to your wedding.

How much does a wedding film package cost?

Standard packages start from $1400 for 4 hours coverage, which usually includes the ceremony and photoshoot. The most popular package is the 8 hours coverage, which is enough time to cover preparation, ceremony and reception. You can also include extra hours if necessary.

Get in touch to get a full pricing list.

Do you charge for travel?

A travel fee will be applied only for locations further than 1 hour from Grange, SA.

Do you provide a contract?

We will always develop a wedding videography agreement covering all the details discussed with our clients. It is a safe document to protect all parties. By that you will know exactly what to expect, avoiding frustration and misunderstandings. It also covers all legal aspects, according to Australian laws.
