Our film style is candid and authentic. We will do anything to make you laugh, but promise not to pose you like Barbie & Ken dolls. We like to keep things simple, and light while focusing on those precious moments that naturally occur between two people who are madly in love.
For this to happen best, it works so well when we meet you face to face or over Facetime. This way we can really get a feel for who you two are and learn about your journey as a couple.
Once we chat and you decide to book, we send out a questionnaire with all the questions to cover your big day. Including questions about your timeline, wedding films you enjoy, music you'd like in your film, etc. THEN - 2 weeks out from your big day, we like to meet again, treat you to coffee and just go over what to expect from our end.
Once the big day is done, you will receive your highlight film within 2 months of your wedding day with all your footage. Yay!
My husband & I have a hard time putting into words how much we LOVE our wedding video! You'll be hard pressed to find someone with as great a talent & passion for creating wedding videos as Katie is. And trust me, for all of you who are on the fence about hiring a videographer, having a wedding video is a decision you'll never regret!
Katie was so great! We are very happy with our video. Our family and friends can’t stop talking about how beautiful it turned out. Katie was very relaxed and professional on our wedding day. She worked well with our photographer. She had fantastic ideas for different shots. We highly recommend Anchored Films!!
I think I’m so speechless the only word I can come up with is WOW! Katie made us feel so comfortable while she was doing her thing, filming, we practically forgot she was there! She was extremely kind to the whole family & wedding party, it was as if she one of us! I’m so grateful we decided to get a videographer for our wedding, so we can look back on our happiest day & remember how much love we have for each other. Katie captures every heartfelt moment and put it together so well, I could watch it on replay every single day.
First things first, let's see if we are available. Once you inquire, we respond within 24 hours and let you know if we are available for your big day. If we are, woohoo! Then we will send you our packages with pricing information and all that jazz. If you feel like we would be a good fit for you, GREAT! You let us know and then we go to step 2...
Once you decide to book, you let us know which package is right for you, we send you a quote for that package and that holds your date for 14 days. From there, to lock it in your date, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required. And wha-la! We are now partners and SUPER excited to be alongside you for this process. We are so eager to learn all that we can about you both and your story - which leads us to step 3...
While we anxiously wait between booking and the big day - you can expect to receive a questionnaire about all wedding details - including things like timeline, other vendors, location, family, films you LOVE, music you want in your film, etc. We are ALWAYS available to you if you need ANYTHING - and we mean anything. You wouldn't believe the stories we have to share about things we've done to help couples prepare for their big day. We are here for you! Need to talk at 1am as you scroll through Pinterest? Call us! Need us to grab you coffee on the big day? We got it! We are here to serve you in whatever capacity we can. Just ask!
FINALLY - the big day is here! What can you expect from us? Well, we always arrive early to make sure we are set up & ready to start filming right away. Expect a hug from Katie when we get there - she's a hugger. Then we start! We try to remain as out-of-the-way as possible yet ready to serve. We let your photographer direct as we film all those precious moments. We follow you and capture every moment for you to look back on. And once the perfect night comes to a close, we say our goodbyes, another quick hug, maybe a selfie with you stunning gems, and we leave. Check out the next step to see what we do afterwards!
While you two enjoy your wedded bliss, we get cranking away to securely store and back up all your footage. We always, ALWAYS back up your sacred footage in at LEAST 2 locations.
From there we begin the editing process and promise to deliver your beautiful highlight film within 2 months of the wedding. We also promise to deliver ALL the footage to you within 3 months of the wedding so you can always look back & reminisce.
With your footage, we send a little instruction card of how to best store and care for the footage. We always recommend that you also back it up on a separate drive or location just in case.
If you ever were to lose your drive prior to backing it up, have no fear! Just shoot us an email and we will send you a new one! We always keep a backup of every wedding for 3 years just in case.
Once everything is done, and you've received all of your precious footage... this is the part where we say goodbye... or not!
Just because the wedding is done, doesn't mean we lose touch. We love hearing from couples long after their wedding. We usually connect over Instagram to keep updated with where your journey is taking you.
Or if you'd like, you can sign up to receive newsletter from us about where our journey is taking us! Either way, we love to stay connected with our amazing couples & share glimpses into each other's lives!
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.
The sooner the better! We only take on about 20-25 weddings a year so we can dedicate our best work to our couples. We are currently booking for 2019 and 2020 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!
Depends on how many you book! Normally we have Katie film your perfect day and whoever is there ALWAYS has at least 2 cameras for your big day. But you can always add another videographer to your package.
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 were referred by another couple, you can receive 5% off any package.
You can expect to watch your completed highlight film within 2 months after your actual wedding day. If you added a teaser film, you will receive that gem just 2 weeks after your big day!
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!
Choosing the people who will surround you for the big day can be overwhelming. Check out our free guide to choosing a videographer perfect for you! And don't worry, your information is only used to send these helpful tips and nothing else.
