Q: Why invest in a quality wedding video in addition to photography?
A: Your wedding day is one of the most celebrated days of your life. We believe that budgeting for an amazing photographer and wedding filmmaker is a necessity and should be one of the top decisions you make when planning your wedding day. You have spent months deciding on each and every detail. Your wedding video will allow you to relive not only the beauty but also the sounds and atmosphere of your special day for a lifetime. Ask any bride and she will agree that the wedding day flies by. Avoid the regret of not having a way to experience your day again by choosing to capture your day on video. And – we work wonderfully with photographers!
Q: What packages do you offer and can they be customized?
A: This is a very common question we get from couples. While most companies have three or four boxed packages to choose from, we approach things a little differently. We want to hear from you regarding your wedding details, timeline and goals for your video. That helps us to make recommendations on hours of coverage and customize a package that fits your day perfectly. However, every package we customize includes everything you need to receive an amazing wedding film. Necessities such as high definition DSLR coverage, full editing of all events, professional audio recording and our guaranteed delivery within 12 weeks are always included. You may choose to further customize your package by adding any of our optional enhancements such as Blu-ray HD discs, rehearsal dinner coverage or our popular highlights video to share with friends. We also offer a more cinematic feature film package if that is more your style.
Q: How long will it take to receive my final wedding video?
A: We believe that you should not have to wait half of a year or longer to receive your final wedding DVDs. We only accept a limited number of weddings each year, allowing us the time to craft your video within 12 weeks without compromising on quality or artistry. This is a key difference that sets us apart from the majority of wedding studios and we take this commitment very seriously. If you purchased a highlights video, we often complete it sooner and can provide it as a ‘sneak-peak’ while putting the final touches on your full video.
Q: Who is Wedding Storytellers and who will actually be filming my event?
A: Wedding Storytellers was created to provide documentary style videography paired with our more cinematic brand – Atlanta Wedding Productions. AWP is recognized by clients and wedding professionals as one of the top wedding film studios in the Southeast. All events are shot and edited exclusively by owner Mike Henry as the lead videographer. Mike has over a decade of experience working at some of the most premiere venues in the region. These venues include Cherokee Town Club, The St. Regis, Sea Island, The Mansion at Forsyth in Savannah, Old Edwards Inn and Spa, Capital City Club, Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee, Piedmont Driving Club, Atlanta History Center, The Fox Theater and many more. We officially opened shop in 2002 but have been in love with the art of filmmaking since grade school.
Q: Will filming be disruptive? I do not want my day to be a production.
A: Our goal is to capture the genuine moments from your wedding day. Therefore, we do not stage shots or conduct those cheesy interviews some old-school videographers are known for. In fact, most clients mention after their wedding that they did not even notice us, yet loved all of the candid shots that we were able to capture.
