What is the pre-wedding/event process?
You’ve seen our work and either want to know more info or you want to jump right in and book! Either way, go to our “Contact” page and fill out the form. We will email you back about your big day + any info to come with that. (Expect a response within 24 hours). Then we can keep emailing or set up a phone/coffee date. Once you want to make it official, you’ll pick your package, we will send over contract, you will pay your retainers. Then BOOM! You’re booked. Welcome to the Light Burst family 🙂
When do I get my photos, video, or both?
Our turnaround time for a wedding highlight video is 8-10 weeks. Wedding photos get delivered in 3-4 weeks. Our turnaround time for an engagement session is 1-2 weeks. Corporate videography is based on contracted time.
How do I receive my images or videos?
I will email you your online gallery. From there, you can purchase your prints and have them sent straight to your doorstep! You also have the option to download your images to your computer. We do not put watermarks on the downloaded images, once you’ve paid for them they are yours!
For video, you will get a link to share on social media and with family + friends, as well as an option to purchase a personalized USB drive.
How many photos will I receive?
It all depends on how many hours we are there! It’s typically about 25-50 images an hour. We give only edited images, We do not send any obvious duplicates or blinks, nose picking, blurry photos, or photobombers (unless its funny or adds to the story). We do NOT give out RAW, unedited images or video clips. (Unless you’re down to pay copyright price.)
Please understand that with shooting video, we literally take thousands of shots, which could range from one second to 15 minutes of video. There’s no easy way to send off those clips to begin with, and we assure you we put a lot of time into picking the best clips for your time frame!
Do you travel?
Absolutely, we love it! Travel + lodging fees are required on top of wedding fee. We custom quote travel elopements/weddings so please email us and we will figure out the perfect price!
I really want you to be my videographer/photographer, but our budget is a little lower than your package prices.
Okay, time to talk money. Don’t be afraid to open that door, We are an open book and welcome ALL questions. We get it, money is rough. Planning a wedding/event is rough. It sucks when all you want are stunning photos/video for your big day but looking at wedding photographer or videographer prices have you super discouraged. Here are some suggestions… A) Have your wedding during “off season”. Here in the Midwest, off season is November-April. B) Have your wedding on a Friday or Sunday. A lot of venues offer weekday discounts! C) You’re a last minute bride (and if you are, that’s totally cool!) and the wedding is in 3-5 months! If I am available, I will offer my services to work out with your budget. But honestly, if you are getting married 12+ months out, try to save save save! Your photos and video are all you’re going to have to look back on.
Can we have any music we want in our wedding video?
The short answer is probably not. Unfortunately licensing popular music can cost tens of thousands of dollars per video, and that creates a large legal issue as well online. However, we have amazing instrumental artists we work with to get unique songs that fit the mood of your wedding/event and will compliment it beautifully! Each song is licensed specifically for you :)!
