FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ SHOULD I BOOK A WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER?
By far one of the most common complaints I hear from newlyweds is that they considered a wedding film, decided against it, and now wish they had. A professional wedding film captures the day in a way that photography alone cannot. Video has the incredible power to transport you back to those precious moments. When captured in film, those memories can be cherished forever. If you had the chance to see a film of your grandparents' wedding day, wouldn't you like to see it?
+ WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT ROWE FILMS?
ROWE FILMS blurs the lines between art and wedding videography. Each and every ROWE FILMS wedding production is unique and tells the story of the individual couples. One of the most common compliments I receive from my clients, and others that follow my work, is that my productions look and feel like movies. But most importantly, I focus less on inanimate objects and more so on the people that make memories. I love to film people. The expressions on faces and those intimate, sentimental moments. When editing wedding films, I strive to create real atmosphere, mood and emotion. I am often told that my films are powerful enough to make complete strangers shed a tear. This is quite possibly the greatest compliment anyone could possibly give me and continues to enshrine my love for wedding videography.
+ Why do you choose to specialise in wedding videography?
In a nutshell, because I am fascinated and intrigued by human beings, our relationships, and how we interact with one another. Weddings encapsulate the most powerful of human emotions. Love. As a storyteller, what better way to tell a compelling story than to capture one of the most important days in a couple's lives? On top of that, there is no better 'job satisfaction' one can get than to provide two people with real lifelong memories, and something they can show to their children and grandchildren for generations to come. I do believe I have the best job in the world. Period.
+ What is your approach to filming a wedding day?
To have fun. My number one mission is to ensure that the footage I capture on the day, and the resulting edit, truly reflects the essence of the wedding and the personality of my couples. In order to do this, you as the bride and groom, as well as your guests, need to have fun and feel relaxed. This is why I do everything possible to ensure that everyone feels completely at ease with my presence. Expect lots of laughter, and at many points throughout the day, to forget I am even there. This way, I get to capture the most natural footage possible. I also strive to work with your other suppliers, such as your photographer, to ensure all of us do the best job and get the best results that we possibly can.
+ What if we don't enjoy being on camera?
Some people feel more relaxed in front of a camera than others. However, my clients often tell me that thanks to my approach, they felt completely at ease and even enjoyed being filmed! Even if you don't particularly enjoy being photographed or filmed, this is nothing to be concerned about. I always work with my couples and approach the day intending to make them, as individuals, feel as comfortable as possible. Never will you be made to feel awkward, or asked to do anything you do not want to do. My job is to ensure you enjoy every moment of your day, as much as you possibly can.
+ How far can you travel?
I predominantly cover the South West including Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, however I do not place limits on how far I am willing to travel. So far my wedding videography services have taken me as far as Cyprus, and I am willing to travel to wherever a wedding takes me. My quotes will always factor in expenses relating to travel.
+ How many hours do you cover on the wedding day?
Unlike most wedding videographers, I do not work on an hourly basis and do not place limits on how long I am willing to stay on the night. My job is to produce a compelling wedding film so it is very much in my interests to stay on if there are events still to happen that will add value to the final production. This is something I like to call on the day and I will only leave when I am personally satisfied that I have covered all of the main events, and have sufficient footage to tell your story. All weddings vary, however most commonly I will be with you from bridal preparations in the morning, right through to the evening reception, first dance, and stay on to capture some of the evening celebrations too.
+ What videography equipment do you use?
Like any skill, it's important to continue to invest in the tools required to do a job well. ROWE FILMS is no exception. I utilise the latest technology to get the best results possible. I film most weddings with two cameras and a variety of lenses which serve different purposes. I use tripods, monopods and a stabilisation gimbal in order to achieve those beautifully smooth, cinematic shots. I also use high quality microphones and audio equipment to ensure I capture clear audio during the ceremony and speeches. Then of course, there is the drone, which I employ to capture those beautiful aerial views. When it comes to the editing stage, I have invested in top of the range hardware and software, to ensure the post-production process produces the desired results and the end result is something to be proud of.
+ Is drone use included?
Yes, as standard with no additional cost. My drone travels with me to every single wedding! However, drones cannot fly in adverse weather conditions - high wind and/or rain. Doing so would put people and property at risk and for any drone pilot, safety must come first. I will do everything possible to ensure that those amazing drone shots are captured, however it will be dependent on the weather on the day.
+ Are you a licensed and insured drone pilot?
Yes. I am a fully insured and qualified 'Small Unmanned Aircraft' pilot, with permission to carry out commercial operations from the Civil Aviation Authority. In the UK it is illegal to fly drones for commercial purposes without the necessary qualifications and permission from the CAA, so this is a must have for any supplier intending to operate a drone at a wedding. Without this, there can be no valid insurance and an accident could be extremely bad news for all concerned. I am a responsible drone operator and adhere to UK Air Law and the rules of the air at all times. I always carry out the necessary pre-operation checks before the wedding day, and pride myself on being up front with my clients about any potential issues flying in the wedding locations (such as restricted airzones and nearby airports, for example).
+ Can we meet you before the wedding?
Absolutely. In fact, this is very much my preference. I always like to meet with my couples face to face whenever possible. I do believe that I actually get more out of these meetings than my couples do! I strive to capture the personalities of the bride and groom in every one of my films, and it really helps me to get to know you a bit before the big day. It is also a great way to run over the details and logistics of the wedding day to ensure plans are in place and everyone is on the same page. Where this isn't possible, due to distances being too great for example, a simple telephone, Skype or Facetime call will work just fine. If you book ROWE FILMS as your wedding videographer, I will be on hand via telephone or email during the run up to the wedding, to answer any questions you may have, and assist in any way I can.
+ How do you deliver wedding films?
All of my films are delivered in full High Definition via USB stick. The USB stick is presented in a ROWE FILMS branded gift box and posted to your home address, or hand delivered if distances allow! I am always contactable should you require any assistance with playback.
+ How much do you charge?
Check out my current wedding packages, with prices and information above!
+ Do you require a deposit?
Yes, a deposit is required to secure the booking. This will usually be around £250 but the exact figure will be discussed with you on confirmation that you would like to proceed with a booking.
+ When do we need to book you?
Demand for my wedding videography services is currently increasing quite rapidly, and I can only take one booking per date, so I would definitely recommend getting in touch as soon as you can so that you don't miss out!
+ How can we contact you to discuss our wedding?
You can submit the enquiry form at the bottom of this page to send me an enquiry and start your journey. I will respond as soon as possible. Another enquiry form, as well as my email address and telephone number can also be found on the CONTACT page of this website, however I recommend submitting the form at the bottom of this page first and foremost. I'd also recommend providing as many details as possible about your wedding in the form submission, as I will need to know this information to discuss your enquiry.
