WHAT MAKES LIGHTCRAFT IMAGES DIFFERENT?
We believe that documenting important occasions is about more than posing photos or pushing record. It's about building relationships that make our clients feel comfortable enough to allow their personalities to come through in the images. You can't do that if you're just running a checklist and going through the motions. We want to learn about you, create a genuine rapport, and use that to create tangible memories you can cherish forever. Photography and videography are the only ways we know of where time can actually stand still.
WHO WILL BE SHOOTING MY PICTURES/VIDEO?
We will! Lightcraft Images is an exclusive partnership between Kynna as the photographer, Blake as the videographer, and you as our client. We only send out other shooters if there is no other choice, or if you have booked a second photographer/videographer.
WHY DON'T YOU HAVE PRE-MADE PACKAGES?
Every event is a different experience and needs to be treated as unique. What works for one couple may not work well for another. During our initial interview process, we'll ask you all about your plans, your needs, your wants, and use those answers to create an investment package that fits perfectly within your budget.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Absolutely. Accidents happen and it always pays to bring along more gear than we'll actually need for a shoot.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP SHOOTERS IF YOU GET SICK OR INJURED?
Yes. Even though Lightcraft Images is an exclusive team, life happens. Over the years we have built a lot of positive and lasting relationships with other photographers and videographers who provide solid work and a fun experience. If we ever need them, they are a phone call away.
HOW DO YOUR WEDDING FILMS SOUND SO GOOD?
Microphones for everyone! Very few videographers actually take the time to mic the bride's dress, the groom's lapel, and the officiant. Sound is probably the most important aspect of a good wedding film. Because of websites like YouTube, people have become fairly accustomed to subpar video, but only because they can follow it with sound. If the sound is bad, it doesn't matter how nice the video looks. This is why it's important to secure a good DJ or live band that's accustomed to collaborating with video: The speeches, music, and announcements at the reception are all recorded via their soundboard.
WHEN AND WHERE DO I GET MY PHOTOS?
Sneak peeks will be sent to you within 2-3 weeks of the event, and usually sooner. The full album is usually returned to you within 2 months, but is absolutely guaranteed within 6 months. You'll receive an online album link with a unique password to keep it your images private. No one will see your full album unless you want them to. Only the sneak peek will be posted on our social media. You will also receive a custom USB with your entire album.
WHEN AND WHERE DO I GET MY VIDEOS?
Social media teasers are usually delivered within 2-3 weeks of any event. The raw footage and complete formal events (edited together from multiple cameras and audio sources) will arrive on a custom USB when finished. Cinematic wedding film edits are more intricate, so you'll receive an unlisted YouTube link upon completion for you to watch and approve before finalizing the video for shipping. All videos are typically returned within 2 months, but are absolutely guaranteed back to you within 6 months.
