What is the best time for the ceremony?
In my opinion, the best time for the ceremony is around 4pm. This is based on the idea that you are not planning to have a first look and 5pm if you’re having a fist look. Why not later?
First of all, it’s very important to have enough day light for photo and video after the ceremony. Sunset sessions are always the best and we need time with the couple to make some romantic shots.
Keep in mind, that your wedding organization depends on the work of a lot of people and sometimes everything runs late. Sunrise ceremonies are also a good idea. The light is perfect and the morning breeze is always nice.
What is your approach to filming a wedding day?
Our approach in filming a wedding day is purely candid storytelling, not stage direction. We’ll still interact with you of course, and have a laugh every now and then, but we don’t want to interrupt with the flow of your day. Experience has shown us that this is the best way to capture those real, natural moments as they happen.
When will I receive my wedding photos/video?
We need 2-5 months (depends on season) more or less to send you the video/photography. We are not offering a mass-produced packages, so the process is very time-consuming. It’s for all the right reasons though – we want to make sure that we’re delivering the best we can to our couples. Please rest assured it will be well worth the wait.
Will I receive my photos and videos separately?
Yes, you'll receive 2 separate emails with photos and videos. Normally some days or weeks apart (depends on season).
How long do you keep a copy of our wedding footage?
Once the videos/photos are signed off and you have received your final copies we will keep the raw footage for 6 months after which time it will be deleted.
Can I use my own music?

What type of payment can we use?
We accept cash payments and PayPal.
The client have to pay all the price of the chosen package on or before date of wedding.
When should I book a wedding videographer/photographer?
Better sooner rather than later, and usually 6 – 12 months before the wedding. So probably around the same time you book the wedding photographer. We can take last minute bookings if we have the date free.
Should I inform my wedding coordinator about using external video services?
It is very important that you let your wedding coordinator on the resorts know ahead of time that you have offsite vendors arriving on your special day. It is important that the vendor pass be organized and paid* for prior to our arrival and that all communication between your coordinator be saved and documented so there are no issues or complications when we arrive to the resort.
*no need to pay any fee for us in Majestic Resorts, Kukua, Jellyfish, Huracan, Pearl Beach Club and some other locations
