Frequently Asked Questions

Of course!! We LOVE traveling with you anywhere your love might take you. Adventure is where our creativity thrives! If you are having a destination wedding, please contact us and we can work on a custom quote for you. 

DO YOU TRAVEL?

The sooner the better! Our small team can only take on about 40-60 weddings a year so we can dedicate our best work to our couples. We are currently booking for 2022 & 2023 weddings.

That being said, the "wedding season", aka the summer/fall months tend to go first. Normally those are booked out 6-12 months in advance. But you never know! Contact us to see if your date is still available!

How far in advance should we book?

Depends on how many you book! We always tell couples that 90% of our films are done with a solo shooter since we ALWAYS have at least 2 cameras for your big day. But you can always add another videographer to your package!

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU SEND?

We have a couple! We would be happy to offer a referral discount or a military discount to you. If you or your spouse have served in the military, please let us know so we can offer 10% off any package. 

OR if you happen to be eloping at any of our "bucket list" locations, we would be happy to work with you on pricing ;) 

Do you offer any discounts?

Our travel Bucket List:

Grand teton National Park

Iceland

Italy

New Zealand

Hawaii

joshua tree

Yosemite

BAli

Glacier National Park

croatia

Zion National Park


You can expect to watch your completed highlight film within 2-3 months after your actual wedding day. If you added a teaser film, you will receive that gem just 2 weeks after your big day!

When can we watch the film?

You can! When we send your questionnaire 2 months out from your big day, we ask you what song you’d like to have in your film. We send you a few sites you can pick from, but we are open to anything that we can license. If you’d rather us pick, that’s an option too! Just let us know and we will surprise you!

Who chooses the music?

It could be any one of us! The "WHO" depends on the "WHEN" and "WHERE". 
We have a couple of lead videographers who are located in the L.A area who tackle the majority of our California weddings. We have a few Chicago area videographers (Katie included) who cover our Midwest area. AND we are just had one of our leads move to San Antonio so we will likely expand our reach there as well! :) 

Our small team of videographers have all been trained the same way and have worked together for years now. We have this down to a science AND an art. We still limit our wedding intake so that each one of us can dedicate our absolute BEST to your day. 

After you inquire, and we check schedules / location, we will let you know which one of us will be your point man (or woman) for the day-of :)

Who Will film on our day?

It's actually amazing how much we get this question. Short answer: No.
Mikey is more of the behind-the-scenes kind of guy. He likes to call himself the CFO.

His full-time job is coaching college football (his first love), HOWEVER -
He has in fact filmed weddings with me, Katie, before. And usually if we travel for a wedding - he is the second shooter :) 

Does Mikey actually film?

this sounds PERFECT!  We want to learn more.

An experience to cherish. A videographer-client relationship that seems more like a forever-friendship. Films that feel like "home."

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Katie Swider is one of the kindest & most talented people you will ever meet. Not only will she create the most memorable, professional + emotional wedding video you can imagine, but she will also be one of your favorite people you get to hang out with on your wedding day!!!! She is so warm & easy to feel comfortable with. I loved how intentional Katie was in getting to know me before our wedding and we had the best coffee date just talking about life and what I wanted in our video.

And speaking of videos- she absolutely knocked it out of the park with our wedding video!!! I let her pick the song & I was blown away by how it was more perfect than anything I could have ever picked. She captured all the small, sweet moments from our day I never want to forget. Her editing is amazing & you can tell she pours her whole heart and soul into her passion of videography. Overall Katie is an absolutely incredible videographer and an even better human being. THANK YOU KATIE!!!

"She pours her whole heart into her passion."

We were originally not going to use a videographer until we saw the amazing video Katie created for our friends' weddings (yes, multiple friends). They were all so beautiful!

On our wedding day, Katie was so easy and fun to work with, everyone in the wedding party loved her. Thank you so much for making such a beautiful video of our wedding!

"Katie was so fun to work with."

- Olga + Greg

I'm not crying... you're crying! Okay okay we're both over here bawling! Cant wait to watch it on repeat for forever now! One thing I did not understand that I've always heard people say is just how fast everything goes, it flies by in an instant, you blinked and you missed everything. Thank you soooo much for capturing it so beautifully and helping us truly relive. It is everything! If AnchoredFilms did not capture your day, did you even get married?? Cannot recommend them enough! All of our friends and family are blown away by the film and continue to share their awe! Incredibly professional, wonderful to work with, Katie helped us feel comfortable and focused on the day while she killed it on the taping, editing and everything in between! Thank you again, soooooo much!

"I'm not crying...you're crying!"
