Logistics

You do your homework! I dig it. Here are a few of the logistics of what it’s like to work with me on your big day.


WHY MY COUPLES HIRE ME

My couples tend to be joyful, crazy-in-love, upbeat people who don’t take life too seriously. Killer! I’m the same way. Here are the big reasons those couples choose me:

  1. I try to go above and beyond in everything I do. Questions? You’re going to get a detailed response. Advice? I’ve got plenty. Interesting films? I’m going to push the limits every time I pick up a camera. My work doesn’t stagnate because I’m constantly learning and trying something new.

  2. I have the world’s coolest hobby (typewriters).

  3. My work is how I see the world: lots of colour, lots of fun, and lots of life. While being deep and serious has its place, I lean on showcasing the happiness and good vibes of your day more than the dark brooding tone some videographers prefer to aim for.

  4. I’m dedicated to the two of you. How do I put my money where my mouth is on that one? I take on less than 20 weddings annually so that I can be available for you guys and not so overwhelmed with work. I’d rather make a little less money annually then be burnt out and unable to give you the best experience.


CONTRACT

Yes, we definitely will sign a contract together when you decide to bring me onboard your big day. This isn’t a one-sided, dense, legal-jargon filled rip-off, but it’s a really detailed account of exactly what working together entails for both of us. You guys will have every aspect of the work I’m guaranteeing you outlined in full so that we can all rest assured we’re going to have a good time.


PAYMENT SCHEDULE

While I do offer flexibility on how you’d like to pay the total sum of your collection, the standard payment plan involves taking that number and chopping it into roughly 3 equal chunks.

Let’s say you guys went with the Basic Collection and added on Social Media Snippets (Totalling $4000):

  1. $1300+hst - Due at the time of booking alongside your contract

  2. $1400+hst - Due 2 weeks before your wedding date

  3. $1300+hst - Due after the wedding when your photos are finished + being returned to you

As for how you pay, I accept credit card and eTransfer (preferred when possible).


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR FILMS BACK?

In my contract, I put in a maximum of 3 months from your wedding date when you’ll get confirmation your films are finished up and ready for you to check out. That being said, I always do my best to get everything done faster and would say the average turn-around is only 2 months.

You will get all of your films back at once, so you don’t need to worry about seeing one film now and another a couple more months after.


HOW DO WE GET ACCESS TO OUR FILMS?

Everything is done online for maximum convenience. When that final payment has been made, I send you guys the link to your films page where you are able to view, share, and download each and every film you’ve hired me for. See below for a few examples of other couples’ finished products.


ARE YOU LEGIT?

Too legit to quit (Hot Rod, anyone?)!

In all seriousness, absolutely. I’ve been fully self-employed with Hush Hush for more than 2 years now (having been shooting weddings for more than 6). I’ve got all relevant business insurance (happy to provide proof if one of your vendors needs it) and have to charge HST as a result of my legit-ness.


CAN WE WATCH SOME REAL WEDDING FILMS?

Yes, of course! Check out these three couples’ wedding film pages to see exactly what the final product looks like. Click on the photo to be brought to their gallery page
