FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you have a question for us? Below are some frequently asked questions.
HOW DO I RESERVE MY WEDDING DATE?
Please Contact us and we’ll let you know if we have your date available. A consultation meeting will be the next step followed by a 25% non-refundable retainer fee and a signed contract. Once all of these things have happened, your wedding date is secured.
HOW EARLY SHOULD I HIRE YOU IN ADVANCE?
Most of our clients book our services six months-one year in advance. We recommend that you book as soon as possible to ensure that no one else will book your day.
DO YOU BOOK LAST MINUTE WEDDINGS?
All weddings booked with Pathway Media Productions must be 30+ days out from your wedding date. We require this time to ensure proper scheduling for shooters, planning, and getting to know you.
WOULD YOU TRAVEL TO DO MY WEDDING?
Absolutely!, Pathway Media Productions travels mostly around the states of West Virginia, Ohio, and beyond capturing beautiful couples stories. Destination weddings are available as well.. If your wedding is over 40 miles (round trip) outside of zip code 26101, we ask for hotel and travel fees in addition to our package pricing.
DO YOU ATTEND THE WEDDING REHEARSAL?
Yes, Pathway Media Productions does attend wedding rehearsals. We do this to get the best angles possible of the location of your wedding.
DOES 10 HOURS OF COVERAGE MEAN I'LL RECEIVE 10 HOURS OF FOOTAGE?
No, 10 hours of coverage simply means we will be with you for a total of 10 hours. During those 10 hours, we will be filming the most memorable moments of your wedding day.
CAN I PICK MY OWN MUSIC FOR MY HIGHLIGHT VIDEO?
We choose all of our music for our films for two reasons. First, we use licensed music (as required by law) for our videos, so we typically can't use a song that you hear on the radio. Secondly, while you may have a favorite song, that doesn't mean it will fit your film well. We like to choose a song that reflects your day and helps drive the emotions of your wedding film.
DO YOU FILM OTHER PROJECTS BESIDES WEDDINGS?
Not at this time. We only film weddings.
DO YOU CHARGE SALES TAX?
Yes, we have to charge sales tax as it is required by each state that we work in.
WHAT IS YOUR TURN-AROUND TIME?
Most of the work of wedding videography is in the editing process. Good editing takes a lot of time and effort. Please allow approximately 12-14 weeks.
DO YOU OFFER FILMING ONLY PACKAGES?
No, all packages offered include filming and editing.
HOW LONG IS THE FINAL WEDDING VIDEO?
Our highlight films usually range from 3-6 minutes, doc edits are generally 30-90 minutes in length.
