Here at Living Memories we aim to capture family memories and special occasions through film so that you can treasure these moments forever. In our view, the most important things aren't the usual 'posed' moments that every videographer captures but instead the true emotions of your big day and the reactions of those closest to you.
Hayley & Chris Gordini• May 26, 2019
I would highly recommend Sally, she captured our wedding day perfectly. She was easily contactable and professional although extremely personable and fitted into our day seamlessly. Thank you Sally x
What services do you offer?
Professionally industry trained edited and graded videography.
What does the wedding package include?
A wide range of packages with different options that can suit what you would like to show of your big day.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
What style of photos do you take?
Natural although posed can be an option
What kind of technology do you use?
x2 DSLR Camera's with multiple lens options to cover different angles and reactions. Professional Lav Microphones for good quality speech recordings and a professional edit software (Adobe Premiere) and Grading Software (DaVinci Resolve)
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
They can be featured on your own password protected dropbox folder which you can have access to at anytime.
Do you send all the photos taken?
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I can work alone depending on what is needed but usually if it's a big wedding and there is a lot to cover I do have a colleague who I employ to help me.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
No but I can try and help to find someone who will be of help.
Is it just Videography or can you do Photography as well?
I can do both, however I am more experienced with videography
What about extra copies? Are they included in your packaging prices?
Unfortunately not. The couple will usually get an online version of the montage that I will film that they can choose to share on their social media sites as well as their own DVD/Blu Ray copy. However, if any other copies for family/friends need to be made it will be an added extra charge of £10 for DVD and £15 for Blu Ray - DVD artwork will be created for the couple too.
How soon after the wedding should I expect to see my video?
It depends on the package. With a 3-5 minutes montage (which is what I usually edit and grade first) it can (depending on other work priorities) take up to about a week and I will send it to you right away (even for you to view on your honeymoon!). Speeches and any other requests will be a few days after that but will have to be placed onto USB/DVD/Blu Ray due to the sizing - I shall post 1st class once completed.
What about Social Media? Will it be posted on Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube?
That is up to you both. If you are happy with us sharing your happy moments and your big day on our social media platforms then it will be an honour for us to do so. If not it is completely understandable and only viewable for your eyes alone.
What do you need from me once I book you?
If I am the right videographer for you and all is confirmed with dates and pricing then the more information the better. I will need a timetable of what will be happening throughout the day and if you are having a church wedding then I will need to know if any rehearsals will be taking place and if the priest is happy with filming inside the church - this also goes with permission at reception weddings too.
What if we don't like your first edit that you send to us?
Then that is completely fine. I offer 1 re edit (if needed) for free, whereby you can tell me to change anything you don't like about it. After that has been applied however and anymore edits are needed then I will have to charge extra for my daily rate.
What music can we have for the montage? Can we pick it?
Due to rules of copyright and royalties I will not be able to put on well known songs over the top of a montage - especially if it is going to be shared on social media as it will be muted and not viewable. I do have my own library of royalty and copyright free music that I am allowed to use and will carefully choose to fit your wedding montage.
What expenses will you need? Why isn't it included in the package pricing?
Usually it will be an overall cost to cover the day such as food and refreshments to keep me going e.g. lunch, water and some snacks (unless I will be catered- don't feel like you need to as I am very happy finding somewhere close by to have a bit of a relax.) . It will also include travel cost e.g. mileage as well as if I need to pay to park anywhere - so it is very varied depending on location.
