WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
I’m based out of Chicago, but depending on the time of year I could be anywhere! Las Vegas is my second home and I shoot there regularly as well.
MY WEDDING IS OUT-OF-STATE. DO YOU TRAVEL?
I LOVE TO TRAVEL! I’ve shot weddings in 13 states and would love to add more to the list! Hawaii please...😊
I ALREADY HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHER - WHY HAVE VIDEO TOO?
I get this a lot! Photos are great, but 10-15 years from now are you really going to remember that amazing speech your parent or sibling gave by looking at a photo? Highly unlikely - and with every White Claw consumed throughout the evening, the likelihood of remembering these little memories is significantly reduced!
Let me make it easy…here’s the video I recommend to anyone wondering why they should have video coverage at their wedding.
WILL YOU BE MY VIDEOGRAPHER? HOW MANY OF YOU ARE THERE?
Most likely, YES! Any of the work demoed here on MunacoPictures.com are proud samples of my own work. I also have an assistant cinematographer who I tag in when I’m already booked.
This is Mike (on the right). I taught him everything I know and he follows the same shooting procedure as I would. We even use the same model gear so our shots technically look very similar! If I’m unavailable to shoot your big day, not only are you in great hands with Mike as your videographer but I’ll be sure to let you know before booking!
TIP: If you're going to be working with someone for 6+ hours on such an important day, you should and have a right to know who will be showing up! So be sure to ask this as you shop around for not just videography, but your DJ and photography as well.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Absolutely! If you or any of your venues require a COI (Certificate of Insurance) just give me a holler and I’ll send it your way.
HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY EDITED FILM?
Usually about 4-6 weeks after I’ve received your song choice(s). I made that last part bold for a reason. I can’t get started on the editing process until I’ve received your song choice(s).
DO I GET THE RAW FOOTAGE?
Yes! The majority of my delivered films are 3-5 minute highlight films. As you can imagine - a LOT of footage tends to be left out, so I allow you access to this footage just 7 days after the wedding where you'll receive a download link to your raw footage files. Remember, these shots are raw and un-edited - full of camera adjustments, shakes, focusing and all sorts of nasty eye-sores. Rest assured, I won't include anything unflattering in your edited film(s).
DO I GET TO CHOOSE MY OWN MUSIC?
Of course! In the same raw footage email I mentioned above, I will also include some suggested royalty-free song choices I have licensed access to. Hundreds of songs are available to choose from and sorted by genre.
DO YOU ALSO OFFER PHOTOGRAPHY?
No...but I know some GREAT photographers so if you need any recommendations just let me know.
HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE DO I NEED? WHAT IF I NEED MORE COVERAGE?
I’ve found that I almost never spend less than 6 hours covering a wedding. For this reason, my featured packages start w/ 6 hours of coverage (usually beginning at preparations).
Coverage usually begins about 1-1.5 hours before the wedding dress is put on.
Coverage usually concludes after about 30-60 minutes of open dancing has been captured - or after any specific reception events have been captured (i.e., garter/bouquet toss, special dances/traditions, sparkler exit, etc.)
If you think you’ll need additional coverage we can add this to your invoice before you book or we can always figure it out during our pre-event meeting before the wedding. Since timelines usually aren’t finalized until just before the wedding, I always recommend securing your coverage with the standard 6 hours of coverage and adding any coverage (if necessary) as we get closer to the big day. Additional coverage is $100/hr (as needed)
TIP: If you’ve already booked your photographer for a specific amount of hours, I recommend mirroring this schedule for videography.
CAN YOU USE THE DRONE INSIDE?
No. BUT THE FUTURE IS NOW!
Gone are the days where aerial cinematography is limited to only exterior shots. Munaco Pictures is now exclusively offering INDOOR aerial cinematography!
No drones. No cranes. And no, I’m not filming above you from a ladder!
If you want your wedding film to stand out from the rest, this is how to do it. Add indoor aerial shots to your package for a truly unique point-of-view of your wedding day - $499.99
IS TAX INCLUDED AND ARE THERE ANY OTHER FEES?
Yes, tax is included in any pricing provided here on MunacoPIctures.com or through your invoice. The only fee that would be applied would be a travel fee in the event of travel exceeding 150 miles (round trip) or out-of-state weddings. Any travel exceeding 150 miles (round-trip) will be billed at .75/mile for the total mileage. Travel fees for out-of-state weddings vary depending on the location.
I’M READY TO BOOK - HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK?
If you know what package you want to go with, just let me know and I’ll get a proposal sent your way. Payments are all handled directly through the contract, so after you’ve signed and secured your date, simply follow the prompt to make your deposit.
Want to save some $$?
I offer a quick-pay discount when making your deposit + final payment through quick-pay services, such as Venmo or Zelle. So if you use either of those services we can take $50 off your total - easy as that!
WILL WE CHAT/MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING?
Yes. I always reach out about 2-3 weeks before the big day to discuss your final details and timeline. I prefer to meet in person, however if our schedules don’t align or if I’m out-of-state at the time, I’m always willing to meet “face to face” via Skype or FaceTime!
