Frequently Asked Questions

My name is Shawn and I am the proud owner of ValCinema. My beautiful wife, Sarah and I tied the knot in 2015. We have been blessed with two wonderful children, Jackson (son) & Tanner (daughter). 

On our Wedding Day, years ago - which is now such a blur - we had chose not to hire a Videographer. Had we hired one, we would have recordings of our hand written vows from the ceremony, the many toasts & prayers spoken over us, and meaningful moments with my Grandfather who has since passed away.

This is why we love what we do. We hope to share our story, to encourage others not to make the same decision, viewing Videography as only "another wedding expense”. It is truly an investment into your marriage and honestly one of the most important vendors you can book!

If you are likely to spend thousands of dollars on your ONE DAY, you should most definitely have something to look back on.

Something that lasts.

  • What is your Price Range?
    Our prices range between $1,750 to $3,600 per service, depending on how many hours are needs, length of your films or number of photographs received. We also have a substantial selection of Add-Ons that cater precisely to what you want. We highly encourage our couples to budget around $2,600 (per service) to get the most out of money spent. Please view this as an INVESTMENT, giving you a return after the wedding, versus another wedding expense. With this perspective in mind, the more you put in the more you will get back. 😉 Can't wait to speak with you!

  • How do you hire your videographers and photographers?
    Our hiring process starts one of two ways, they either come highly recommended to us or we find their online portfolios and reach out. We interview and screen each videographer and/or photographer's portfolio, confirming they meet all of our gear, quality, and experience requirements. This way we can ensure a consistent and high quality end product for all of our clients. We also offer our feedback and training for each member, so they can continue to grow as a creative beyond ValCinema.

However, there are two limiting factors that could affect our ability to capture drone on the day of your event, being the possibility of inclement weather and/or the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) ‘No Fly Zone’ Regulations.
  • Do I get to choose my photographer/videographer?
    Since all of our creative team members have been assessed and we feel confident in each of their abilities to perform, assignment takes place on our end. We are a company that services many states and offers both Videography and Photography. Therefore, we choose from a select group of individuals and designate them to your wedding event.
