How would you describe your style?
Our style is your story. We mix both documentary + cinematic moments to help craft your story-driven wedding film. Every love story is different, every wedding is different so every story we tell is different. We take the time to get to know you both throughout the entire process so that your film matches your style, personality and tells your story in the most authentic way possible. We have a few questionnaires you will out before the wedding that help us to get to know you, your story and all the important details of your wedding day.
Do you work with our other selected wedding vendors?
YES! This is huge for us! We truly believe that having a great team in place that works well together makes all the difference! We love to collaborate, share ideas and work along side your other wedding vendors, which mainly include the photographer, DJ/Band and venue coordinator. We always reach out to each vendor before the wedding to introduce ourselves, check if they need anything from us and make sure we are all on the same page for the wedding!
Who is the primary shooter and who is the second shooter?
Steph is our primary shooter for every wedding booked. All of our packages include a second shooter which is sometimes Justin or one of our personally trained second shooters. Tonemedia is Steph's full-time focus, while Justin works full-time as a video editor for NBC, so sometimes due to work schedule Justin is not always available to shoot every wedding. We have an amazing team put in place so there's nothing ever to worry about- we have you covered!
When do we receive the completed Wedding Highlight film?
Typically, your wedding highlight film is delivered to you 8-10 weeks after the wedding date. We are just as excited as you guys are to start going through the footage and editing together your video after the wedding!
When do we receive the completed Documentary Edit or Ceremony/Reception Edit?
Typically, our doc-edits are delivered to you 4-5 months after the wedding date.
Do you offer raw footage?
YES! We offer raw footage as an add on to any package. It is delivered on a 1TB hard drive with all the footage organized in folders.
Are you insured?

Do you travel?

Are there any other wedding vendors in the area you love to work with?
Yes, yes and YES! If you need recommendations for any wedding vendors like photographers, DJ's, Bands, Florist, Makeup/hair, Wedding Planners, etc. we know a bunch and have a list of the ones we LOVE to work with! Just let us know which one's you need and we will send you over the lists!
How do we reserve our wedding date?
First, we will set up a time to chat on the phone or meet in person to be sure we are the perfect fit for one another! (After all, we will be with each other pretty much the entire wedding day, so its important you like us, just a little!) Once you decide you would like to move forward with booking we send you our contract and quote via online, you pick your package, sign the contract digitally and then send us your first deposit (either 33.3% or 50%) to reserve your date. The last payment is then due 30 days prior to the wedding.

We offer 2 different payment options, you pick which works best for you! 50% due upon booking and remaining 50% due 30 days before the wedding -OR- 1/3 due upon booking, 1/3 due 6-7 month before the wedding and remaining 1/3 due 30 days before the wedding.
What type of payments do you accept?
