FAQFrequently Asked Questions

Have a look at the questions I have received and answered from my couples in the past. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease for your wedding videography process.

ALYSONKRISHER

I’ve realized through the years that video is just how I communicate. Even as a kid, I had that camcorder in hand so I could drop into the artist’s mind of truly seeing. Making videos helps me taste and express the world around me. I want to show people: “Hey, I see you, and you’re awesome. Watch this so you can see what I see.”

BUENA VISTACOLORADO

Alpine Tree Films began on the beach in North Carolina, but I now reside in the small mountain town of Buena Vista, Colorado. I serve all of Colorado with no travel fees.

HOW MANY HOURS FOR SHOOTING ARE INCLUDED IN EACH FILM EXPERIENCE?

One Rainy October In Brooklyn

To get the true feel of your wedding day, I like to give myself the freedom of no set hours. As we discuss your wedding film, you let me know what is most important to you. Sparkler exit?  Your maid-of-honor is a slam poet? CrossFit workout with your groomsmen? I’m there for it all.

DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER?

We Went To A Concert

I am a one-woman show, and I’ve developed the perfect wedding day flow for myself to create your wedding film.

WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCESS LIKE?

Weekend Getaway

First, I’d love to meet you either over the phone or coffee. Creating art is an intimate venture, and I think it’s important to have a quick conversation before you book. I’ll send you a proposed contract to sign electronically and an invoice for 50% of the contract total, which acts as your deposit. You can pay by check. The final 50% payment is due 1 month before your wedding date.

DO YOU WORK WELL WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS?

This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day: working with your photographer. I consider myself and the photographer “Team Visual”, and I love being part of this team. Photographers are great directors. I let the photo team lead, and I capture along their side. I am looking for laughter, movement, and fun in-between-posing-moments, and I need to give very little direction to capture the authentic moments of the day.

CAN I BE A PART OF THE MUSIC SELECTION FOR MY VIDEO?

I license music for wedding films from http://www.themusicbed.com. I have had many couples create a free playlist on this site for me to choose from to make sure I get the right style for their wedding film. This helps me easily connect the spirit of your wedding day to music, and it’s also a fun thing to do with your fiancé. Otherwise, I am happy to pick the music, and I choose songs based on the emotions I have captured.

DO YOU OFFER RAW FOOTAGE?

No, I do not offer RAW footage. I can assure you that in my post-production process that I select the best-shot moments to create your films. Sending you a hard drive with hundreds of disconnected files is just not practical. This is why I create the Ceremony or Documentary Films so that you can have all the moments captured with multiple camera angles synced perfectly with stunning audio.

HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE MY WEDDING FILM?

Within the first week after your wedding, I will send you a 1 minute teaser so you have something to watch and share with family and friends. You can expect the rest of your wedding film(s) between 1-4 months after your wedding date.

HOW DO YOU DELIVER THE FILMS?

I send you a link via Vimeo that allows you to share with friends and family and download the file forever.

WHAT IS THE REVISION PROCESS LIKE?

I want you to love your film. All revisions can be sent within the first two weeks that you receive your films.

WHAT IF MY WEDDING IS AFFECTED BY WEATHER ELEMENTS?

I realize it’s taboo to speak on this topic, but when you choose to get married in the mountains you have to be prepared for all that mother nature has to offer. I am like the post office: Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays this courier from the swift completion of my appointed rounds. Below are examples of weddings to show you how my gear prevails through heavy wind or rain. I’ve got your memories covered.
