DON'T JUST REMEMBER YOUR WEDDING DAY...
* So many moments are happening throughout your wedding day and it's impossible to see them all. Imagine 10, 20, or 50 years from now- will you remember exactly what your partner said during their vows? What about the heartfelt memory your father or maid of honor told during their speech? With videography, all of the most important pieces of audio are captured during your wedding day. This isn't just a wedding film- it's a living memory. Everything from getting ready, the ceremony, first kiss, speeches, details (and all the moments in between) will be stored on video forever.
* My filming style is a mix between documentary and cinematic. I want to capture the "candid and real" you on your wedding day. I'll work directly with your photographer, DJ, wedding planner, and other vendors to capture all of those intimate and loving moments throughout your day.
* Every wedding film is unique and authentic to YOU. Not every couple is the same so your wedding film won't be cookie-cutter either. I use bits of audio from your vows, ceremony, and toasts paired with beautiful details and moments from your day pulled together with perfectly chosen songs to tell your love story.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How soon should I hire a videographer?
Depending on the month you are getting married in, it's recommended to book your videographer at least 6-8 months before your wedding day. However, I've had couples book me the month of their wedding and others that booked a year in advance. Don't hesitate to connect with me!
Can we pick our own music?
Unfortunately not. Legally, I have to license my music through specific sites and mainstream music is usually not available to license. Also, choosing music is a huge part of my creative process. It is inspired by the two of you as a couple as well as the vibe of your wedding day. Music truly brings the film together. So, long story short- no. But I would love to hear the types of music you're drawn to!
Do you travel?
Absolutely! I'm based in central Ohio but love to travel!
Do you have insurance?
Yes! If your venue requires proof of insurance, just let me know and I can provide my certificate of coverage.
How do you protect your videos?
I use dual memory card slot cameras, so videos are immediately backed up. After a wedding, I back up all videos in multiple places. Your wedding day is priceless and keeping those memories preserved is my top priority.
Do I have to choose a collection when I book?
Not at all! If you're still deciding on which collection is best for you but want to secure your date, I would recommend booking The Classic. You may upgrade your collection and add additional services at any point before your wedding day.
How soon will I get my film?
You will receive your online video album within 12 weeks of your wedding day.
What else should I know about wedding videography?
The biggest regret from wedding couples today is that they didn't hire a videographer. You simply can’t be everywhere at once and see everything that’s happening. It goes by in a flash. After your wedding day is over, the food and cake is eaten, the flowers die. What remains (besides your marriage obviously), are the photos and videos.
The major difference between photo and video is AUDIO and movement. You can look back on your beautiful wedding pictures but they don’t tell the whole story. With video and audio, you can actually hear the vows you said to your partner, hear the speeches your loved ones gave, and hear the crowd cheer as you kiss for the first time as a married couple. Video is powerful. Your wedding video will outlive you. This is something you can show your grandkids someday- an heirloom.
I'm ready to book! Now what?
I'm beyond excited to work with you! Please fill out the form below so I can get all of your information. We'll jump on a quick phone call/FaceTime (or meet up if you're near Columbus) and talk about your wedding! In order to reserve your date, I require a $1000 retainer and a signed contract.
"Sami was one of the best investments we could have EVER made! I could not be more grateful with the amount of time and effort she put into our video. It’s beautiful, I told her she could take it and do what she thought was best and it was more than I could ever have imagined! You would not regret booking her for your wedding!"
