Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the difference between “documentary style” and “creative/cinematic”?
A. Our creative and cinematic style is what you see in our montages, or highlight reels. We strive to shoot creatively, giving different looks to our shots while trying to complement the events as the day goes on.
Our documentary style is more observational, which means we work for the “fly on the wall” look to our events. We capture them in real time and try not to interfere with the presentation of the events, other than selecting the best shot throughout.
Q. Why are your prices not listed on the website?
A. We really like the one-on-one interaction that a phone call or a face-to-face meeting has. It allows us to hear all about your wedding day, tell you about our business and get into packages/prices in a short 15 to 20 minute time frame. All while getting those important questions answered to help find out if we are a match for each other.
Q. What does “The Knot - Best of Weddings” mean?
A. That means we have been given a 5 out of 5 rating by a particular number of our brides in a year’s time. It is given to us by our brides and is a very important award to us.
Q. Will you work well with my photographer?
A. Yes, we reach out to them before your day to touch base and figure out a cooperative shooting plan for the day. We feel it is better to “meet” beforehand rather than on the wedding day when we are all trying to do our best work for you.
Q. Do I get to pick my music for the montage?
A. No, but sometimes it seems like WE don’t get to pick your music, either. We go through many different songs put against the footage of your day, and usually it’s your day that tells US what music to use. It’s an organic process, and rarely have we preselected a song and have it actually work. It’s a “feel of your day” thing.
Q. Can you recommend other vendors?
A. Of course! Having shot over 50 weddings and worked all across the state of Wisconsin, we have worked with many vendors in many cities. From DJs to photographers, photo booths to limo buses, we probably know someone who does what you are looking for.
