FAQ

Why choose Still Moments Studios?

We are the best. Whoa, that just came out. Sorry. All kidding aside, we are humbled at the prospect of anyone entrusting us with something as important as their wedding day. We take our craft very seriously and prepare prepare prepare so we can be beyond ready for you. We put in plenty of time before, during and long after the wedding is over to ensure we deliver amazing results. We also have cute smiles and smell nice.

Do I need a wedding videographer?

Goodness yes. We often wonder why so many couples choose to defer or skimp on their wedding video when it’s one of the only things that lasts beyond your actual wedding day. The other thing is of course, your eternal love. Even if it’s not with us, please seriously consider investing in a competent wedding videographer to capture all the special moments that make up your momentous day.

What is your style?

Photo-journalistic. Fly-on-the-wall. Documentary. Cinematic. What does that really mean? We try to stay out of your way and just sit back and watch as your day unfolds. We think there’s enough going on that you don’t need a bossy videographer telling you to be here and be there. We find that we capture the most genuine heartfelt moments when we don’t intrude or “manufacture” moments. However, if we see a potential Academy Award winning shot we’ll give you a heads up.

Who picks the music?

You do. But if you want to leave it to us we’ll dig into our massive iTunes collection and find something to suit your personality as a couple. Don’t worry we’ll go over the song selections with you prior to immortalizing your wedding with an epic 80’s love ballad. Please send us any and all music that you’d like to see as part of your main feature film. We cannot guarantee that every song you request will make it to the final edit.

What cameras do you use?

Our tools of choice are Canon DSLRs like the 5D Mark II and the 7D and our beloved L Series lenses. We’re hoping saying this will encourage Canon to supply us with more goodies but truly we are Canon loyalists and shoot with little else. Safe to say we are well equipped with every geeky gadget to capture your day.

When should I expect my finished video?

Wedding highlight takes about 1-2 weeks and main feature film usually takes up to 3-5 months to deliver sometimes much sooner. It really depends on our wedding workload but rest assured, although we try to deliver your video as soon as possible, we don’t rush anything and focus on stellar results.

Do you shoot outside of Orange County?

Yes. Especially locations with palm trees and sun-soaked, white sand beaches. Of course pricing will reflect differently as a result of travel expenses, time and lodging but we’d love to come hang out with you wherever you are.

What is your payment policy?

Dog the Bounty Hunter will discuss financing options with you. Just kidding, we fired him because of grooming issues. We have a 20% non-refundable deposit to hold your date, if anything should happen and you have to move your date we will do our best to accommodate you. 60% is due by the wedding day and another 20% when we deliver your videos. We find this works best for most people but some people just prefer to pay all in advance so they don’t have to worry about it. Don’t worry we won’t run away with your wedding footage or money, the iron-clad contract we sign prevents us from doing so.

Can you work within my budget?

We get this question a lot. You know the saying “you get what you pay for”, this holds especially true of wedding videos. Although we can work with you in terms of catering a package to fit your needs, we work passionately to give you something we’d be proud to have at our own wedding. With that being said we can’t give you half our effort for half the price, it just doesn’t work that way. Our pricing reflects the perceived value of our work.

Do I have to feed you?

It would be rude of us to insist that you feed us but if you were to offer us steak and lobster I assure you it will not be rejected. We tend to think and work more creatively when fed as well. Wink Wink.
