FAQ

Why Hire a Videographer when I have a Photographer?

We love photography and think pictures are important to have, so find an amazing photographer! The thing that always amazes us is that video tends to be in the Maybe category for couples. While photos capture a snap of what happen, video captures the reality of what happens. Seeing motion pictures and hearing audio of your vows being exchanged is something you’ll want to have in 5+ years.  To capture your grandmother laughing is just a glimpse of what video is capable of doing. Your loved ones wishing you an amazing future is something still photography can’t do. Most of our clients say they cried while watching their highlight video. We explain Your story through the art of filmmaking. The style of wedding videography is evolving and becoming more cinematic. Its like a movie! Modern Technology has made it possible for us to have high end video productions at weddings. So before you skip over a videographer, just ask around and read some blogs about the couples who choose to invest into a videographer. Watch our videos and imagine having that for the rest of your life.

How do you work with the photographer to get your shots?

If we don’t know the photographer we always call them before the day of the wedding an introduce ourselves. Most photographers and videographers have developed a method of working together. We take turns to get our shots. Overall, the Inventive Films team is a cool group of guys and easy to work with. :)

How do you handle Low Lighting situations?

What do you do with our raw footage?

We save your raw footage on an external hard-drive for about 2 months after you get your final product. Clients must own external hard drive compatible to MAC to retrieve the footage.

What is the game plan for Inventive Films going into weddings?

Every filmmaker scheduled to shoot has an agenda. Weather it be operating the jib and glidecam, giving interviews or getting detailed shots… everyone has a specific job to get done. After shooting many weddings we have developed a strategic method to film the day the best we can. Weddings are difficult to film, we think they are the most challenging thing to shoot in the film business. The reason why is because it’s a live event that only happens once, they move extremely fast and we are challenged to creatively capture things on the fly with 150 people present. So bringing on a film crew with a game plan is important.

How are we involved with the process?

We strive to make YOUR vision come alive, not ours. Some couples like to choose their music, which that is fine! We may put a twist to it such as adding an introduction song before the video kicks in! Or if the song suggested doesn’t fit the vibe of the wedding day we will suggest to choose something similar to the energy of the day. We ask our clients what they want in their videos and make it happen.

Is our raw footage safe?

We back up everyones footage on multiple External Hard Drives.

Will You travel for weddings?

Yes we travel! It’s 1 dollar a mile, unless you are in Napa Valley/Sonoma.

Do we have to provide a meal for the Inventive Films Crew?
Its about a 12 hour day on our end so packing a lunch never works well with no refrigerator. It’s always nice when our lovely couple offers a snack. :)
