Are you willing to travel?
We love travelling! We ask that any necessary accommodation charges to be taken care of before the day of the wedding. Travel costs are only applied to weddings that occur outside 125 miles outside of Indianapolis.
What is included in your video packages?
Some may look at our list of packages and think “that’s all?” Others may hyperventilate with the task of deciding between them. To make things as simple as possible, we’ve differentiated our packages depending on how long we are with you on your day. With The Full Experience (Package #1), we’ll be there as you and your spouse get prepped and ready, through the ceremony, until the late hours of the reception, and all the photos and transitions in between. With the Deeper Cut (Package #2), you get a little more than a traditional ceremony video: we capture the reception as well! The only thing you miss out on in the Deeper Cut is footage of the preparation at the beginning of the day. Although the longer video is the more popular option, if you’re on a tighter budget, we suggest opting for a shorter video. With the short video, only one song will be used to canvas the entire day (as opposed to two or three songs used for longer videos).
Why are even your longer videos so short?
We believe that a lot can be told in a short amount of time. Your video becomes faster paced and more viewable as a ten or fifteen minute piece as opposed to a thirty minute video. Trust us on this one.
What is a Dance Video?
We're glad you asked! A Dance Video is a seperate video that will come on your DVD, or in a digital copy form. It will include the first dance of the bride and groom, as well as the Mother/ Son and Father/ Daughter dances.
What are speech videos?
Speech videos are separate from your final video. They include the video and audio of all the speeches at your reception. These are included on DVDs if you decide to order them.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do we reserve you for our wedding date?
To reserve your date, please make sure we’re available by e-mailing us! Then we require a $200 deposit along with a signed contract.
What sets you apart from other videographers?
If you can’t tell by our pimples and our perpetual SpongeBob quoting, we’re pretty young for the wedding industry. However, we see this as an advantage! With us being film students, we’re always on top of new techniques and equipment. We have a zest for learning and are always finding new ways to better our craft. Not to sound cocky (then again, we’re millennials), but we have a fresh approach to creating wedding videos that make them fun and flowing, easy to watch and heartwarming. Each of our videos have the cinematic look and style of a music video. We tell our stories chronologically to build the same structure as the actual wedding day and we work in music you already love to make it all the more special. We love connecting with you through social media and really getting to know you beforehand. It helps us get a feel for your personalities and style, which helps in editing your video.
When will our DVD's be ready?
Your wedding video will be posted online for you and your family and friends to see approximately 8-9 weeks after your wedding day. Therefore, your wedding DVDs will be ready at the same time as well. We can ship them to you or drop them off at your convenience!
How many videographers will be at our wedding?
We like to keep things pretty tight-knit at N&S. You’re promised both of us (Nicole and Stuart) on your day. This keep ours quality of work consistent.
Will you meet with us for a consultation about your services?
Of course! We love meeting with our couples before their wedding. If meeting in person is not possible, we are open to Skype, phone calls, or carrier pigeons.
What time will you arrive on my wedding day? How long will you stay for the reception?
Because we do not charge by the hour, we arrive at the start of the day and leave after the reception. Our goal is to capture your story. We will stay as long as there are special moments happening.
Are we able to get the raw (unedited) footage of the wedding day?
We do not offer raw footage from the wedding. We shoot several hundred gigabytes worth of footage captured in thousands of shots, so handing over raw footage would simply be overwhelming. We prefer to edit it down and show you the best parts of the wedding in the final video.
Will there be a lot of bulky equipment?
We don’t use any artificial light, so you don’t need to worry about obtrusive lighting or giant stands. We use similar cameras to what your photographers will use, enabling us to remain inconspicuous, yet still able to capture all the action. N&S is our name, bulky equipment is not our game.
How do you work with the wedding photographer(s)?
We consider photographers to be our friends and colleagues. We understand that wedding photos are very important to the bride and groom as well as their families and friends. We work directly alongside the photographer, making sure we do not interfere with what they are there to do. We collaborate with the photographer as much as possible to ensure that we are both getting the best possible shots.
How do you pick the music?
We want your video to be something you enjoy, so we want to use music you both love. We’ve worked with brides that know exactly which songs they want, and we’ve given suggestions to brides who are looking for input.
