Customers seeking a cinematic wedding video will find starting packages from within the $2,000 price bracket.  Although the definition of a cinematic wedding film varies widely within the industry, we generally apply the term to high image quality films produced for example, with DSLR cameras and lenses that utilise motion stabilising devices.  High quality cinematic films employ multiple camera angles during important scenes and utilise motion filming equipment.  All inclusive high quality cinematic packages start at $3,500 and increase in price with the experience of the film crew, use of additional specialist equipment and added inclusions.
