Can you film the bridal party getting ready?
Our packages are continuous hours so that couples can choose when to start the clock. Typically, I recommend starting with the ceremony start time for the best coverage value. Depending on the time-line, geography, commute, traffic and that I need to be at ceremony location 60 minutes prior to start time, bridal preparations may not always be a good choice. The best scenarios are when everything takes place in just one location, bridal prep, ceremony and reception.
Lets say that your ceremony is 5:00 and bridal preparations are 2:00, thats 3 hours used before the ceremony even starts. In this case, a 6 hour package would start at 2:00 and end at 8:00. If you started with the 5:00 ceremony start time, the 6 hour package would end at 11:00. Also consider the size of the room that you will use for preparations, the people involved, the photographer, then add the videographer. In most videos that include bridal preperations, 1-2 minutes of footage is what is used for the edited video.
Its your wedding and your video package, you may start your coverage time whenever you wish. For the best coverage value, we recommend starting your coverage time at the ceremony start time.
