Lenaig’s photos are so beautiful and well composed and yet still perfectly rock and roll, and we loved that she used a mix of digital, film, and polaroid cameras throughout the day. John’s highlight film is so perfectly us, and we’re absolutely obsessed with it! We didn’t want something overly serious or sappy and he created the perfect mix of wedding nostalgia and music video. We were so excited that he used almost exclusively Super8 and Hi8 video too, since we love everything retro. Working with Weiss Photo & Film was a total dream.
frequently asked questions;
01. What is included in your pricing?
Our prices are carefully calculated to reflect all of the things that go into documenting your wedding day. The main factors are; material costs of film, time spent on-site + editing, as well as our operating costs as a small business. Our collection costs are all inclusive so you will not see additional costs for travel even if your wedding day requires it. The only additional cost you can expect is the Washington sales tax for Washington state residents.
02. What is required from us in order to book you?
In order to book, we require a signed contract and a retainer payment. For individual services the retainer payment is 50% of the total service cost. For photo + video booked together, the retainer payment is 33%. The rest of your payment is due 30 days prior to wedding day.
Once we have created a proposal with a collection that matches all of your needs, we'll put together a contract and invoice for you to review before signing.
03. How far in advance should we contact you for booking?
We encourage couples to hire us 9-12 months in advance! Once you fill out our booking form, we will immediately let you know if we are available for your wedding date! If you do not have a wedding date selected yet, feel free to reach out. We are happy to put together a proposal for you without a wedding date but a date will be required when it comes to signing a contract and putting down a retainer!
04. Do you travel for weddings?
YES. One of the biggest perks of our job is getting to travel. If your wedding is outside of the Seattle area - let us know in your inquiry form. We make custom proposals for all of our inquiring couples and once we have some more information regarding your wedding day - we can give you more detailed pricing for travel!
05. Do you shoot film?
Yes, 100% yes. It's our favorite. Film is a big part of our workflow for both photo and video. Film has allowed up to approach wedding days with a slow, thoughtful eye - a drastic contrast to working with digital. We have a few different options for film that are laid out in our pricing collection. We offer 35mm film, medium format film, and instant film for photography as well as Super 8mm for videography! Our prices reflect the material costs involved in creating work on film.
06. What are the advantages of hiring you as a photo + video team?
If you are interested in both services, we highly encourage you to hire us as photo & video team. It's what we excel at! John and I have a seamless, non-obtrusive workflow that we've mastered over the years. Our level of trust and intimacy with one another allows us to anticipate each others movements and coordinate effectively. John and I push each other creatively and lean on each other for help & support throughout the day. Working together is a huge perk of this job that we enjoy so much! You may also contact us to book our services separately.
07. What will you help us with after we book you?
We will help with basically, everything! We have several touch points with you between booking and wedding day. We will see you for your engagement session, if you choose to have one, and your pre-wedding consultation.
We send out a comprehensive wedding questionnaire in the months leading up to your event - which we use to guide us as we navigate your wedding day. We also communicate with your other vendors to ensure that we're communicating our needs and hearing the needs of others so that we foster a collaborative environment.
We are always available via email to answer any questions you might have throughout the wedding planning process and often work back and forth with our couples to create a seamless timeline. It's most likely your first time planning a wedding but we've attended countless weddings and are more than happy to weigh in with our recommendations!
Lenaig and John really captured the mood and emotions of the big day. Their unique videography style and attention to detail really sold us. Take a look at the videos they’ve produced and you will understand why their work is so special. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to work with Lenaig and John.
Lenaig & John were a dream to work with. My husband and I cannot be more grateful for the beautiful work that they delivered, but also their professionalism throughout the entire process. Lenaig & John were able to deliver perfectly dreamy photos, a flawless highlight film, and full ceremony video that I'm sure we will continue to cherish in the years to come. To top it all off, their warmth and kindness simply enhanced our experience and we highly recommend working with them!
