FAQ - Weddings

How do we book you in?
Send us an email or visit our contact page and let us know what you are wanting shot and when.

Where are you based?
On the Gold Coast. But we're always happy travelling around to shoot!

How long are your wedding packages?
We offer a 6 hour half day package or an 8-10 hour full day package.
If you would like a custom package please don't hesitate to ask and we'll see what we can do!

What does a feature / highlight clip mean?
We take all the best, memorable, fun & sentimental moments from your day, paired with the most fitting music and combine it into one awesome video for you to watch back and re live over and over again.

When will the finished product be ready?
We care immensely and take a lot of pride in our work so editing your film & photos can sometimes be a lengthy process. We ask that you allow up to 8 weeks from the wedding date to have your final product.

Can I choose the music?
We like to play fair and buy / licence our music through some great sites for film makers & videographers. We're happy to let you browse through these sites and let us know your preferences. We are listening to your music taste all throughout your wedding day so there's a good chance we can get a feel for your vibe on the day. Music purchases are included in our package prices.

Will you make us do anything awkward?
I would hope not! We like to keep our clips super natural and candid. I'd love you to watch a clip that was so true to your actual day so we don't set up rails or any intrusive gear that can make you feel like you're in a commercial. We like to use a hand held stabiliser and a hand held camera for more of a documentary feel. Of course during the portrait session you might have a kiss and a laugh but only because you just got married, so heck why not!

Can I give you some inspiration or ideas?
Of course, inspiration, briefs & mood boards can be discussed before the date so we can be sure to give you the best product but ultimately creative direction is left up to Wilde Visual. By using us to capture your special day; you are agreeing to hire our unique eye for photography / videography and our creative editing style. We care deeply about producing a final product to your taste and that accurately represents you and your wedding day.

What audio do you choose?
Honestly (eeppp) we're not big on overlaying speeches and vows on our clips, there's already a lot going on visually and the music is such a powerful and emotive tool. A lot of the time ceremonies are outside so factors like wind, fuzzy or quiet PA systems or talkative guests can impose on the quality of audio we record. If there are important moments of  audio you want captured on the day then be sure to let us know in advance so we can arrange that.

Can you capture both of us getting ready separately before the wedding?
Yes! There are packages that you can choose either one or two of us to be shooting. Choosing two of us means we can split up and capture those exciting preparation moments leading up to your ceremony. If you choose to have one of us we do what we can to capture both of you but we'll need to know the times and distance from each other and the venue you're planning to be. 

Anything we can do to help?
Think about having an unplugged ceremony - no guests on phones, cameras, iPads etc. It's a shame when we see your friends and family missing these important moments because they're busy taking a picture or choosing the right filter. Let them leave the job up to the awesome photographers and videographers you've paid to capture this once in a lifetime moment. Plus there can be the heartbreaking moment their iPhone is in the way of a shot, eeeppp!

What about meals?
A staff meal while you and your guests are eating is a must. It's a long day and no one likes photos or video of them eating ;)

Can I have the RAWs?
We do not offer RAW photos or footage with any of our packages. RAW files to us are an unfinished product and we will never deliver a job half done. If your heart is set on seeing a particular moment let us know before hand and we'll make sure you do. Don't worry we make sure everything of importance and value makes the cut :)
