We shoot in a creative photojournalistic style. This means that not only do we capture your day in full, we do it with a creative eye. This allows us provide you with a cinematic video.
We shoot in 1080p Full HD and 4K.
We always capture audio from multiple source to be sure that we our are getting the best audio. An example of this is at the ceremony. We will plug into the sound system at the church (If provided), put a lavaliere mic on the groom, (for the vows) and have a shotgun mic on the main camera (for ambient sounds).
We shoot video on (Low Light) DSLR’s/Mirrorless cameras that shoot in 1080p Full HD and 4K. By shooting with DSLRs/Mirrorless cameras it allows for us to capture cinematic style. For Photo we use high megapixel cameras.
Lighting is one of the elements that can make or break a shot. We go out of our way to make sure we have the most ideal lighting set up, while still not being intrusive. We mostly use lighting at the reception during dances to fill in just enough light to get amazing shots. We do all our lighting off camera. This allows us to set up lights that help improve the quality of the image while not being as distracting as a light on the camera.
Please check out our photo and video pages for previous work we our very proud of. For testimonials please check us out on The Knot or Wedding Wire. We can also put you in contact with a previous couple who can share their thoughts upon request.
Length of videos can vary mattering on your package and the length of your wedding day. On average the short film will be 5-8 minutes, and the full length film will be 1-2 hours.
We can adopt to any schedule that is required for a wedding. With that said we highly recommend a time of the day called "Golden Hour" this is the time right before sunset.
We try to wrap up the family photos within 20 mins. This often takes place right before or after the ceremony. We have some tips to to make these go quickly. Ask us for more information!
We love to travel! Most of the time you will find us serving the Chicago-land area, but are happy to travel to any city, state, or country.
Yes! We would love to bring it to your wedding to get some awesome ariel shots of your wedding day.
Of course! We love any creative feedback you have for your album. We can also design the whole album if you would rather leave it in our hands.
