Infiniti Films Couples Guide

HELLO!

First of all – CONGRATS! You're getting married

How exciting! Be sure to give yourself a moment to take it all in.

Here at Infiniti Films, we believe it’s important for you to be able to relive and completely immerse yourself in your wedding day all over again for years and years to come.

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. What better way to relive all those memorable moments than with a unique film dedicated to you and your partner’s story as a couple?

This guide is designed to answer any questions you may have regarding our creative process and what you should expect when it comes to our creative workflow. It will (hopefully!) also answer any of the necessary finance questions you may have so we can get straight to the fun stuff – your wedding films!

But all the other wedding vendors have a PDF guide for us to read through, so where's yours?

Yes! We started doing that too – until we realised that having a web guide is far more flexible and modern than emailing around a PDF that can get quickly out of date.

What you’ll find in this guide

This is our Booking Guide – designed to introduce you to Infiniti Films and help you decide which of our packages is most suited to you. This is a companion to our Couples Guide, which you’ll be given access to upon booking.

In this guide you’ll find information regarding:

Behind the lens

Hey! I'm Jason – and I'm absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of your wedding day.

If you're reading this you may already have an idea of who I am – but if not – I'm a filmmaker from Cronulla in Sydney, Australia who's dedicated an (almost unhealthy) amount of time into perfecting my style of cinematography and photography.

I’ve been lucky enough to capture a whole range of content – from events to travel to nightclubs – and I’m extremely passionate about all forms of creative media. The art of storytelling is an integral part what makes us human, and it’s where my love for filmmaking and photography stems from. And if I haven’t got a camera in hand, you’ll probably find me at the beach or off chasing a sunset somewhere.

Booking Process

What to expect

Let’s be real – you probably had an infinitely large selection of wedding creatives to choose from. You probably looked at a tonne of different styles, trawled through countless photo galleries and so much more. Which is why we’re so grateful and honoured you considered us!

Crafting wedding films is so much more to us than a way to pay the bills. The best thing about what we do lies in that we get to capture the intimate connection that you and your partner share, and that we ourselves are gifted with the opportunity to build connections with each and every one of our clients.

We’re more than just incredible storytellers, more than compelling cinematographers – we’re here to support you on your big day.

If you haven’t already locked in you wedding date with us, take a quick look at our packages below and get in touch!

Here’s what you can expect from us during the booking process and beyond:

01

We’ll be in touch with you via email where we’ll ask you for some preliminary information about your big day so we can gauge whether we think we’re a good fit to capture your wedding. If you reached out to us via the contact form on our website we’ll most likely already have all this information from you.

This includes things like: your wedding venue, date, themes and style and other quick starter information.

You’re more welcome to ask us any and all questions you may have for us at any time!

02

We’re totally down for scheduling in a pre-booking phone call to answer any questions you may have for us and help you select a package that’s right for you. Sometimes couples find it easier to discuss over than phone rather than getting lost in email chains.

We also understand you’re probably very busy people! Emails are totally okay if that’s easier for you.

We’ll usually send you this guide fairly early on to help you out as much as possible!

03

Let’s book in your wedding date!

Once you’ve settled on one of our packages and you’re ready to move onto planning with us please reach out to let us know.

We’ll send you a link to our online bookings portal when you’re ready. And don’t stress – you’re more than welcome to switch packages or add any extras at a later date so there’s no pressure to decide on everything now.

We require a 50% retainer to secure the date for you and the final 50% will be due 14 days prior to your wedding day. Payment plans are available on request – just give us a shout!

04

Amazing! Let’s plan the photography side of your day.

I won’t lie, planning a wedding can feel intimidating. But don’t worry, I’m here to help!

Once we’ve booked you in we’ll send you our Couples Guide – which is a bit like an extended version of this Booking Guide. It’ll run you through a lot of photography-centric information you may find helpful in planning your special day.

This will include a typical day plan / timeline and list of important moments we like to capture throughout the day. Of course, it’s not a one-size fits all template, but it should give you a good idea of what we like to capture from your wedding day.

Your own personalised photography day schedule will also depend on the season because lighting is very important!

Reception at Chapel Hill Retreat

05

Let’s get to know each other a little better! This is where our Questionnaire Kit comes in handy.

You’ll receive your own Questionnaire Kit at least six months prior to your wedding day – personalised with specifics we think will suit you best based on the information you’ve already given us.

I’m quite happy to walk you through this in-person or over the phone to make the process a little easier and as stress-free as possible. And most importantly – you don’t have to answer ALL the questions – this is to help get you thinking about the photos side of your day and what you’d like us to capture (or not capture).

07

It’s getting close to your big day! We’re all getting excited ?

By this stage, we’ll have all the information we need from you to construct a full day timeline so we’re well prepared and we don’t miss anything on the day!

You’ll receive a finalised pre-production schedule brief from us at least 3 weeks prior to your wedding day. This personalised wedding photography timeline will detail exactly what time we’ll be showing up at your doorstep to begin capturing your big day.

Remember, we can only fill this out once you’ve completed your Questionnaire Kit. The earlier the better!

08

Things might start getting a little hectic in the weeks leading up to your wedding. But no need to stress – we’ve got a handle on all things photography and videography for you.

We’ll be in touch with you one week prior to your wedding with some final tips and reminders to help ease the nerves.

Sunset at Bendooley Estate

09

After we’ve captured all those incredible moments that make your day so unforgettable, it’s time for us to hit the editing studio.

All your films and photos will be delivered together. Generally, you’ll receive them within 8 weeks of your wedding day at the latest. Of course, this all depends on the amount and type of footage we captured, the season and the volume of our other bookings.

We prefer to give your wedding films and photos the attention they deserve rather than simply rushing them out.

Thank you!

Thank you for putting your trust in us. It’s a big deal, we know.

It is our greatest pleasure to have the opportunity to capture your special day with you. We want you to be able to relive the greatest day of your life, and we’re excited we get to be the ones to capture it for you.

Looking forward to it!

About the packages

Our packages are priced on the long-term value and high standard of production quality we maintain while working with you throughout the entire process.

Travel cost is included in all packages for wedding venues that are within 2 hours drive of either Sydney CBD or Sutherland Shire. We love to travel though so we’re more than happy to come to you! Destination weddings are definitely a vibe! These won’t pop up as sneaky fees either – one of the first things we ask you is where your wedding venue will be so we’ll let you know well in advance if this will be the case.

Drone filming is only included where practicable and legally permitted.

Payment schedule

Payment processing occurs through our online Couples Portal. We require a non-refundable 50% retainer to secure the date and the final 50% is due 14 days prior to your wedding day. Instalment plans are available on request.

Change of dates may be requested and generally won’t have an additional fee attached. We’re more than happy to accommodate you and totally understand that wedding planning isn’t easy!

For cancellations within two weeks of the wedding date, a full fee may still be charged subject to our Service Agreement as compensation for the loss of ability to book other couples.

Frequently asked questions

Got a question? Reach out – we’d be more than happy to help you out.

Capturing your day

What sort of coverage do you offer?

All of our packages include full day coverage. This means we'll be with you all day from start to finish (for a maximum of 12 hours).

Typically, we generally start with the groom's and bride's house (for getting ready shots), followed by the ceremony venue, a bridal photoshoot, and finally your reception venue up until your grand exit.

We believe there’s only one way to capture your wedding properly – to be there by your side from start to finish – prep to grand exit, sparkler tunnel, fireworks, you name it! We don't like forcing you to pick between packages based on time constraints. Instead we’ll happily cover it all (within reason of course).

We're open to extending past 12hrs on request only – just so we don't overwork our shooters!

We've never been in front of a camera before and we've no idea what to do.

That’s totally okay and perfectly normal! I’m here to walk you through everything and will do my best to ensure you're comfortable behind the lens. Video is all about movement, so rest assured I'll be there to direct and guide you through everything. I also like to use a mixture of the environment and prompts to bring out the best version of yourself.

If you've also booked another photographer or other creative – amazing! I love working with and bouncing ideas off other creatives.

We want candid, not directed. Do you direct?

Everyone directs in some capacity, but it's how it's done that makes the difference.

We prefer to use environmental cues and prompts rather than rigid poses, as often these are the ones that look the most comfortable in your wedding photos. And of coruse, if you have any ideas on the day we're always open to listening.

Our filming style is more 'as it happened' / in the moment rather than staged poses or acted scenes. Wedding films should feel natural and comfortable and sometimes the best way for us to do this is to simply capture the moment as you experience it.

Do you use a shot list?

We prefer wedding films to feel natural and comfortable and so would rather capture things in the moment and as they happen – sticking to a shot list is a little too rigid for our tastes. We do, however, have a shot list that we look over during the planning stages so we can keep a general idea of how things play out in the back of our mind and ensure we get all the shots we need to capture to tell the story of your wedding day and you as a couple.

Long story short, we do have a list of things we need to capture – first kiss, aisle walk, first dance, etc – but won't be working strictly by-the-book off it on your wedding day so that your wedding film feels more organic and natural.

Film Style & Editing

What's your cinematic style?

Cinematography

Our filming style is a natural blend of non-obtrusive, candid, professional and most of all FUN! Wedding films should feel natural and comfortable, and the best way for us to do this is to capture things in the moment and as they happen.

And when we feel we’ve got an unmissable shot on our hands, you can rest easy knowing that we’ll be there to guide you through our filmmaking process and walk you through every step of the way – always with a friendly attitude and a smile.

Editing

Editing is where the magic comes together.

Our editing style effortlessly blends together immersive storytelling and meticulously crafted rhythm and pacing. Bright, vibrant and warm tones are essential for all of our wedding films, as is the emotional touch that makes those raw moments so unforgettable.

Have a look around – you’ll get a feel for our style in no time and won’t be able to look away!

What if we already have a song in mind that we love and would really like to be used for our wedding film?

Yes, you certainly can! We will, however, need to ensure it fits the vibe of your film.

Just be aware that if your song is commercial / popular, you may run into some issues with being able to share it online and across social media.

Our team

Where are you based? Do you travel?

We're from Cronulla in Sydney, Australia.

We're ALWAYS willing to travel for you though, so please don't be afraid to reach out even if we're quite some distance away! We'll travel Australia-wide and world-wide in a heartbeat for you.

In fact, destination weddings are an absolute vibe and we'd love to join you!

Do your packages include a second shooter?

Both our packages – photography and videography – include a primary shooter.

We're more than capable of flying solo, however, we do recommend asking us about including a secondary shooter to your package. It's especially helpful with moments where one person can't be in two places at once and ensures comprehensive coverage throughout the day. There's also more good vibes to go around (and it's often slightly less stressful for us!)

Wedding planning

Can we meet before our wedding day?

Of course we can. In fact, I'll highly encourage it! Once booked, you'll have an unlimited number of coffee / tea / brunch dates, phone calls or video calls at your fingertips. This way, when the camera's rolling we're all comfortable with each other and you'll look great on film!

We've already booked a photographer. Do you play well with other creatives?

Amazing - of course! We love working with other creatives! Our approach to your photography and videography is fairly similar to other creatives, so we're sure there won't be any issues at all.

What if we have last minute changes to our schedules or dates?

That's totally okay! We're more than happy to postpone at no extra cost in most circumstances. But please let us know as soon as possible.

Packages and Payment Plans

We've having trouble deciding on a package. What's the difference?

Our packages are split between videography and photography to make it simpler easy for you to understand.

We used to offer all-inclusive packages and offer different tiers – but we found this far too complex and difficult to understand, especially when many couples are looking to mix-and-match add-ons and extras across the different tiers.

Instead, we offer two packages – one for videography, and one for photography (and a discount if you'd like both together!). This way, you get everything we think is absolutely essential and can decide on everything else in the lead-up to your wedding day.

As part of our Cinema package you'll receive both a Creative Feature Film and Full Day Film, with the option to add-on Social Media Edits and other extras

We've designed these to offer a perfect balance between flexibility and simplicity, but if you have any other questions please reach out!

The packages are a little out of our budget. Is there anything we can do?

Our packages are priced on the long-term value and high standard of production quality we set for ourselves throughout the entire process. This ensures that when it comes time to show you the final film, we're both equally happy and proud of the result. To uphold this high standard of excellence, we don't like to cut corners at any stage of production.

Yes, other wedding vendors may be able to offer a cheaper price – but we feel that this is most often at the expense of quality and reliability.

Do you offer payment plans? Will there be a retainer due?

Payment processing occurs entirely online through our Couples Portal. We take both online payments (fees may apply) and EFT.

We require a 50% non-refundable retainer to secure the date for you and the final 50% is due 14 days prior to your wedding day.

Payment plans are also available on request – just give us a shout!

How much does a wedding film cost?

We offer two packages – one for videography, and one for photography (and a discount if you'd like both together!). Please click the link to view our pricing information for wedding videography and photography.

We've designed these to offer a perfect balance between flexibility and simplicity, but if you have any questions please reach out!

Delivery

Do you provide RAW footage?

Ask any photographer and you'll find this tends to be a bit of a controversial point among them. One of the more common arguments is that if you hired a baker to deliver the best wedding cake in town, would you expect them to deliver a tray full of ingredients?

Our general stance is that RAW photos are unfinished work and delivering these files would not be up to our standard of excellence.

We do, however, offer RAW footage for our Cinema Packages only as an optional extra as we understand that many couples simply want to playback the footage in their own time. Be warned though – there is often in excess of 7hrs of footage (can reach 200GB+ or up to 1TB if we're filming in 4K!)

How will the films be delivered?

All your wedding films and photos will be delivered via online gallery, available for you to download for up to 6 months following your wedding day.

Generally, your films will be delivered within 8 weeks of your wedding date – however please be aware this depends on the amount and type of footage we captured, the season, and the volume of other couple’s bookings.

We'd prefer to give your wedding films the attention they deserve to preserve their quality rather than simply rushing them out.

Ready to let us capture the most magical day of your life?

We hope this Bookings Guide has given you insight into our creative process and helped you answer some of your questions.

If you’re ready to book in, we’d love to put you on our calendar! If you need some more help deciding, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Looking forward to capturing your special day!
