Remember back in the time when your parents wedding video was a tripod at the back of the aisle, and the video was hours long? Those days are behind us. Accessing and reliving your day in a creative video that ranges in time frame captures the day in such a special way.
With every wedding collection you have the option to add on a Highlight Video for an addition cost. This video can include a second shooter depending on the collection type. These videos range in timeframe 3 - 10. minutes long. This is offered to all Wedding Photography Collections as an Add On feature.
You will receive your video through a link on WeTransfer to store and back up for safe keeping. You will also receive a public Youtube Link (you can opt out if you choose) where your video will always live. A way to share your video with family and friends.
If there's a combined effort to collection the footage it will always be me, Danica, editing the final product. This includes coming together on music choices, tone, and voice captured on your special day.
Yes of course! This is a collaboration and this is YOUR wedding video. I send a questionnaire before the wedding day to collect all your thoughts and priorities. With this information and the footage captured I'm able to create your dream video. This includes if you want speeches, vows, or any letter reading included. Music choices, live music, or voice overs too! Sound is HUGE part of a wedding video that isn't included in your photography so I take it seriously to get right just for YOU.
Yes and no. I do bring my drone with me on wedding days but it's never a priority to me. Why? I own a drone that is under the standard weight to NOT need a drone license. So yes I can fly it. Though flying a drone has a lot of permissions and weather dependant rules. If these things line up and I have time to put it in the air than we can go for it! It's never something I can guarantee (and no one else should for that matter) due to weather restrictions alone.
I like to keep it simple. I have microphones attached to all my cameras and I use a little lav microphone to attach to one partner during big moments. Big moments like the first look, ceremony, or letter reading. This is small enough to fit inside a pant or jacket pocket. It can pick-up on both partners anytime you are close, which are all the good times for sound.
Some videographers offer a same-day edit. An edit of one part of the day viewed at the end of the reception or during the reception. This is not a service I offer. I do not have a large team and offer my videography services as a high quality, fly on the wall, documentary approach.
This can mean different things to different people. RAW files are massive, and are not a true representation of my work. That's why you hire me, so give me perspective, creative vision, and documentary style to create a beautiful representation of how the day happened. This story telling does not lie in the RAW version of your wedding captured. RAW files are also very large and not something I ever give up. I do offer "an Unedited Speeches Video" if you have any during my coverage time. This is a video of speeches from beginning to end in one video file for you.

"During the entire pandemic, she has kept us updated with new restrictions and what to expect for the upcoming period of time. It made having an intimate wedding during this odd time very seamless. She helps with picking out locations and takes the time to visit the site beforehand so she knows exactly where to bring you on the day of.
I cannot stress how much I recommend Danica. From the photos to the experience, you will not be disappointed. If you are considering choosing her for your special day or to help document a special moment in time, she is 100% the right move :)

"I am so happy that Danica was the photographer on our wedding day! With COVID there were so many very last minute changes to our day but Danica was so understanding and accommodating. She really did roll with it when our entire plan for the day changed. Throughout the entire planning process communicating with her was so easy and comfortable. While taking photos she made us, our family and friends feel comfortable very quickly. We had a lot of fun taking pictures that day. Afterwards, the photos were sent to us very quickly and they are absolutely stunning. Danica is truly talented! We cannot wait to work with her again during our rescheduled wedding reception!"

"Danica was my wedding photographer this past year. She was everything we could have wanted and more. She was professional, organized, down to earth, and honest. Danica has the ability to catch a moment with a photo so perfectly. We have so many beautiful, candid pictures that remind me of some I’ve seen in a magazine. Not only is she talented, but she is so kind hearted and such a hard worker. We had the best day and part of that was thanks to Danica."

"What nobody tells you about wedding photography is how awkward it can be. My husband and I were definitely not used to having all the focus on us - and we were nervous about how to "be candid" and still look good.
Danica changed this for us! She was absolutely amazing and made us feel so comfortable. I have recommended her to three friends and they've all loved the photos she took and the entire experience, and if anyone asks me, I'm definitely pointing them her way."

"Just being around her reminded us to calm down and enjoy the moment. We were walking together after the ceremony to do more photos and I remember her whipping out her bluetooth speaker and blasting some good vibes for us, and the whole time she was cheerful, encouraging, and not afraid to put bossy relatives in their place (firmly, but politely of course). We even got a sneak peek of some pictures the very next day!"

YAY! Coming together and talking weddings is my thang! I have a series of questionnaires to best prep for your special day and I'm always accessible via video chat, call, and email. I always put my existing clients first.
Things like photo permits, scheduling, and coming together with any wedding planner you might have is part of all the prep before the wedding. I want to make sure this day is YOURS so please run all your hopes + dreams by me.
