Q. What is your approach to photographing and filming a wedding day?
A. We like to capture real expressions and stories as they unfold. We want you to look at your wedding pictures and have memories playing back in your mind allowing you to be in that very moment celebrating the day you made the biggest promises of your life.
Q. Is photography better than film ?
A. Both has its own dimension and merits, we certainly enjoy doing both using the same philosophy in storytelling. Bottom line, it should not be a choice of one or the other but one that complements each other.
Q. What is Cinematic Experience?
A. It is when you experience both of our combined photography and film services, which allows us to maximise what we can do for you. Whenever we work with our full team, we get to work a lot more freely and efficiently. You get to meet with both your photographer and film-maker prior to the wedding day at the same time. This instantly creates a great chemistry and relationships, which guarantees a much better result.
Q. What is a Same Day Edit Experience ?
A. A short film of your wedding, edited on the day to be watched together with all your guests on your reception night. It's hard to share in words what it's like.. the laughter, the happy tears and the rush of emotions. You've just got to experience it.
Q. What is a Pre-wedding film?
A. Pre-Wedding Film is a honest and personal short film that tells a story of what makes the couple unique and what it means for them to be together. Ask us about the process of getting your story told in a prewedding film :)
Q. You are more expensive in comparison to many other companies. Why?
A. We are a boutique production company that does limited number of weddings every year. We completely believe in our work in a way that it has the potential to be the best thing that you would have spent on your wedding especially after the test of time.
Q. What will I actually get, film-wise, once Paper Cranes has completed my wedding project?
A. All base packages will contain both a Main Feature and a Short Film edit (except upgraded). The Main Feature edit will contain all of your formalities in full while the Short Film edit is a short highlights music video of the entire day that you will watch hundreds of times again with your friends and family. There are also other types of films that you can upgrade, such as the Cinematic Trailer and the Same Day Edit. Please contact us for more details.
Q. Can I use my own music?
A. Yes and No. We purchase an annual blanket license that covers all music for your personal use, however, it doesn't cover online viewing. Hence all of the music that we have on our website would have a different type of license, which is not always available on every song. Please speak to us about the song that you would like to use and we can advise you if we can license it or not.
Q. What makes you different from other Wedding companies?
A. We believe that our work has an impact in people's lives. We truly do. For us it has never only about shooting from amazing angles, bring friendly around everyone and editing in a cool and creative way. It has always been about what impact can we create from telling the stories of the lives of our couples. This we believe has brought us to where we are today and separate us from the flock and if this is a value that you see as important in your photographers and videographers, then we would love to hear from you.
Q. What are the arrangements to fly you overseas to do our wedding?
A. We usually would Skype with you prior to booking with us as we really value the part of getting to know each other and make sure that we are the right people to capture your wedding. Our pricing for destination wedding will already be all inclusive of our travel fees. We see this as a simpler way for our couples and not troubling them with taking care of the logistics of our travel to their wedding destination.
Q. Do you require meals at the wedding day?
A. Yes, simple meals for the crew will be very much appreciated. Most reception venues actually do have vendor meals option available that will be a great option to have.
Q. How long do we have to wait until we get the finished photo/film?
A. We aim to a deliver all artwork within 3 months from the wedding day for both photo and film. We have been working hard to push our turn-around time down but please bear in mind that there may be delay as we are not offering a ‘cookie-cutter’ mass production, so the whole creative process can be quite time-consuming. Timely correspondence from our clients will also help to make the process smoother. 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 the end result will be well worth the wait. back to top
