Frequently asked questions

What's the story behind the name ``The Uncommon Weddings``?

We started The Uncommon Weddings with one mission in mind – to provide an experience so “out-of-this-world” for our couples they’d look back on their wedding experience with us and say, “Wow, that was different”. We intentionally make an effort for all of our couples to feel like our closest friends and family. Before, on, and after their wedding day, our couples are treated with love and attention at a standard that is far Uncommon in our industry.

How long are the ceremony and reception coverage videos?

Ceremony Coverage Video: This video will be the exact length of your ceremony. Whether your ceremony is 10 minutes or 60 minutes, we will capture the entire ceremony in its entirety. Of course, we’ll be incorporating multiple camera angles in the final edit.
Reception Coverage Video: This video’s length will depend on how long your reception is. Typically, this video is between 45 minutes to 60 minutes long. Again, this video will showcase all of the highlights during your reception in full length.

What is a video memory book?

Our video memory book allows you to share your wedding video in the most unique way possible! This awesome book is a wedding album with an embedded video player that plays your wedding video on demand upon opening the book.

When will I get to see my wedding videos?

In order for us to have enough time to make the magic happen and create the absolute best wedding film for you, the standard turnaround time is 8 weeks from the date of your wedding.

Is there a travel fee?

No travel fee. Period. If your wedding is in California, your travel fee is included in your wedding package.

Do we get to meet you before the wedding?

Of course! After our initial phone call, we will put you in contact with your day-of lead videographer to schedule a follow-up call, FaceTime or Skype, or in person meeting (whichever best works for you and our team).

Do we have a say on the music used in our highlight video?

Yes! Although our team is only allowed to use copyright-free music, you still are able to have input into which copyright-free song(s) we use in your highlight video. On your “follow-up call” with your wedding day of videographer, you will be able to chat about what mood/style you’d prefer for your wedding video. This will allow us to accurately choose a song or pair of songs just right for you.

What is raw footage?

In short, raw footage is the unprocessed, unedited, individual video clips that come straight from all 3 of our cameras. Think of these clips as the “puzzle pieces” to the videos that will be delivered. We’ll hold onto your raw footage for up to 12 months after your wedding so this is something you can always add on after the wedding as well!
