Wedding Packages

My approach to wedding cinematography is very ‘fly on the wall’ style, I aim to capture genuine moments with authentic emotions by only shooting handheld and letting you guys concentrate on each other. 

 

The most important thing to me about your wedding, even more than capturing beautiful moments throughout your day, is for you guys to have the most stress free, enjoyable day possible.

I am super excited to hear from you, so let's chat and let's get your wedding date on my calendar before someone else books me and snags your wedding date!

I would absolutely love to be your wedding videographer. I am super excited to hear from you!

FAQ

Ask me anything, I'm here to help 

Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A VIDEOGRAPHER?

A: I first picked up a camera seriously when I was a teenager (2007). Starting out documenting moments in life as I traveled around Australia with my family to creating short films in high school. But it wasn't until I graduated with my Bachelors of Digital Media in 2014 that I took it on as a full-time career. So, we're talking 6+ years now as a professional. 

Q: HOW MANY WEDDING HAVE YOU FILMED?

A: I've filmed over 200 weddings as the lead videographer, I was part of the team over at WayUpHigh Films for many years as a lead videographer while I was studying. And since there's only 52 weekends in a year, my weekends have been basically filled with love stories and late-night celebrations ever since I became a videographer, and I love it!

Q: DO I NEED A SECOND VIDEOGRAPHER?

A: Personally, I say no - unless you have more than 200 guests AND you want specific focus on them and/or you want the exact same moment captured from two different angles (I bring two cameras with me during the ceremony & speeches) OR if you have a really large wedding venue that would be difficult to move between two areas quickly. Otherwise, I have personally filmed more than 200 weddings completely solo and every single couple I have ever worked with has been 100% happy. 

Q: WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

A: This might start getting a bit technical, but I personally use Sony A73's with prime lenses. Both are literally on me at all times throughout your wedding day so I never have to worry about changing lenses, switching memory cards, or changing batteries. Plus it's great having a back up camera at all times! 

Q: DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

A: Yes, I do! Traditional payments are 30% deposit due at the time of booking (within a week) and the final 70% is due 30 days prior to your wedding day. But, if you wanted to do the payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/3's or 1/4's if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. It's that easy.

Q: HOW DO I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING DAY?

A: Love that question the most! To book me for your special day, simply let me know what you want included in your custom collection:
- Number of hours of coverage
-
Highlight Package + vows & speeches or Extra hours (optional)

- Documentary Package + Extra hours (optional)

"Amazing! Absolutely Amazing! His dedication, professionalism, and creativity he provided throughout the entire process was seamless and easy. Ed was very responsive to any questions and concerns we had along the way which was very reassuring. On the day, Ed was brilliant! He blended in with our guests; we hardly knew he was there and worked great with our photographer and other suppliers.

Our finish product (which wow, we received within a month) is far beyond our dreams. We had no words, just the ugly face crying emoji and multiple air fist pumps. Ed captured the emotion of our day which was EXACTLY what we asked for and wanted. The highlight film was perfectly tailored to include all of the best bits of the day but most importantly capture lots of our personal words from our ceremony and reception. Without any hesitation, we would absolutely recommend Ed and Blue Vale Films to anyone. He's a great person, and immensely talented as a videographer.

For the final time, thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Pia & Travis 

ME AT A WEDDING

Why should you book me? Well, I guess ultimately I don’t want to just be another fish in the sea. I don’t want you to book me because I’m a videographer within your budget in your area. I want you to LOVE my work, and to like me as a person. I want to work with people with whom I will be friends.

So, let’s be friends 

THIS IS ME DOING WHAT I LOVE TO DO. I CAN USUALLY BE FOUND WITH A HUGE SMILE ON MY FACE CAPTURING YOU MARRY THE PERSON YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT.
