JUST SOME BASICS TO GET THINGS GOING. YOU READY FOR THIS?
For starters, tell me about you guys! How old are you? How did you meet? What do you like to do?
Tell me about the proposal. Who did what? Where'd it happen?
Now, onto the wedding. When is it? Why'd you choose that date?
Where is your wedding? What drew you to that location/venue?
How many guests do you expect at your wedding?
Does your wedding have a theme? If so, what is it and why'd you choose it?
NOW THIS MIGHT BE A DOOZY. I WANT TO KNOW ALLLL OF YOUR VENDORS. LEAVE BLANK ANY THAT DON'T APPLY.

Anything else I missed?
Why'd you choose me to document your wedding day?
OKAY YOU ROCK. JUST A FEW MORE I PROMISE.
Are there any special moments or details, big or small, that you want to make sure are captured?
I almost always bring a second-shooter with me to help on the wedding day. Is there any reason you wouldn't want or couldn't accommodate for this person?
Will there be dinner? If so, do you plan to provide meals for me and my second-shooter? Just a heads-up - we are both vegan! We totally understand that this isn't always easy to accommodate for, so we are more than happy (seriously) to pack our own dinners if that makes things easier, just let me know!
Let's talk song(s) for your wedding film. I choose the songs because some work better than others and only select songs are available for licensing. I try to match the theme and feel of the wedding day, but if you have any input as far as genre or vibe, let me know and I'll do my best to make it work. Or if you don't really have a preference and just want to leave it to me - let me know and I'll take the reigns.
Unless you don't want this for some reason, I usually put a little microphone on the groom's jacket during the ceremony so that I can get good audio of your vows and whatever else happens during that time. Is there anything else you might want me to mic you guys for? Some people read letters from each other, some couples pray together, some couples like to read their vows privately to each other instead of at the ceremony, etc. Let me know if you guys have anything in mind and I'll make sure to mic you!
Do you have any specific expectations or requests in regards to your wedding video? Or any creative ideas that you think would be cool or were hoping to incorporate? I won't make any promises, but I will do my best to give you exactly what you want, so don't be shy I want to hear it!
Depending on the number of hours we decided on, roughly what time would like me to arrive and leave on your wedding day? If you're not sure yet, no worries. We can discuss this as the days gets closer and more details are figured out.
Do you have an itinerary/timeline for your wedding day? You can write it here or even better, just email it to me separately. (If applicable, please make sure your itinerary includes times and locations for getting ready, first look, bridal photos, wedding party photos, family photos, reception entrance, dinner, speeches, cake cutting, first dance, father/daughter and mother/son dances, bouquet toss, garter toss, formal exit, etc.)
THAT'S IT. THAT'S ALL I HAVE. YOU DID IT.
But before you go, do you guys have any questions for me? Ask away! And if you think of more later - know that you can always email me anything you're wondering about.
