Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions. We look forward to elaborating on these or answering additional ones in our time together
What is your pricing?
Standard full-day coverage starts at $3,000. Inquire for destination rates Schedule a consultation with me - a quick phone call or in-person meeting. Once I understand what you need, I’ll be able propose options for you. If you’re looking for a bargain, Aperture Lane is probably not the right fit for you. However, if you’re looking for quality and piece of mind that your day will be captured well, we are a great start.
who comes to the wedding?
The Aperture Lane team will be at your wedding. We don’t subcontract our cinematography to other studios. I (Ryan) would like to maintain consistency so you get what you see on the site or better.
Do you offer wedding photography?
The short answer is "no". However, we’d love to refer you to photographers who complement our style, whom we work well with, and whose work we love and trust.
Will there be a whole production team at my wedding?
Yes. Our production team consists of two videographers for the greater majority of weddings and events. For events of much larger scale than typical, there will be additional team members as needed (and you’ll be made aware upon booking).
Do we pick the music for our film?
Typically, no. After we’ve all experienced your day, we can choose music that fits the “vibe” of your event and that complements the footage we walk away with. Also, due to copyright laws, we can’t just slap on a song from your personal music library. However, suggestions are more than welcome as they are also taken into consideration.
Do you provide raw footage?
If, by “raw footage”, you mean the files directly from the camera without any editing, yes. That can purchased in addition to your packaged content. If, by “raw footage”, you mean the events of the day in full, yes. We offer an Extended Cut, which is the key moments of the day edited as they happened.
How long will it take to get my videos?
Our standard delivery window is 3-5 months. If your event is in the slow season, it could be even shorter. We definitely appreciate your patience and use that time to give each client the best product possible!
How do you deliver my content?
We use a platform that we affectionately call the “Digital DVD”. You’ll receive a private link that is password-protected. Once opened, you’ll have a menu (just like a traditional DVD) and you’ll be able to watch your content, download it and share it with whomever you please. You’ll also be able to share your film on social media. In an effort to be environmentally conscious, we no longer offer physical media like discs.
Do you only offer those mini-feature videos?
Aside from our signature mini-feature films, we do offer other services and products, like same-day edits, concept videos, raw footage and much more. Have a look at our info and pricing.
