FEATURED ADD-ONS

Our featured add-ons are tailored to give your wedding video a creative boost.

Pre-wedding events are a big part of your South Asian wedding. The colorful and classical footage from these events are added into your feature film to drive your cultural wedding story.

 

Coverage of each pre-wedding event starts from 2 hours with one cinematographer. Additional hours are $150 /hr. Some larger pre-wedding events may require an assistant and/or an additional cinematographer. Traveling may apply for each event.

Sample pre-wedding event pricing
  • a 2 hour pre-wedding event (like a Maiyan, Haldi or Henna etc) with 1 cinematographer: $900 + travel
  • a 4 hour pre-wedding event (like a Sangeet or Jaggo) with 2 cinematographers: $1650 + travel.
  • a 6 hour pre-wedding event (like a longer Sangeet or Jaggo) with 2 cinematographers: $2050 + travel.

 

  • Combining multiple pre-wedding events into the same day will be a better value. Each additional hour after the first event is priced at $150 /hr (with 1 cinematographer) or at $200 /hr (with 2 cinematographers).
  • Pre-wedding events on a weekend (other than your wedding weekend), incur an additional $400 flat weekend rate. It is more cost effective to have your pre-wedding events on the weekdays leading up to your wedding weekend.
  • Larger pre-wedding events may require an assistant and/or an additional cinematographer. Please be advised that it’s best to reach out to us to get an accurate proposal.

Are you ready to book?

Have a question for us? Read our FAQ.
How do we reserve our wedding date?

Send us an email with your wedding date(s), your information and the package options you are interested in. We will send you a proposal that you can accept and sign. A 40% non-refundable retainer is required to book Aperina Studios for your wedding day. Another 40% is due 1 week prior to your events, and the remaining balance in exchange for the final product.

How far do you travel? And will it cost us extra?

We travel all over the world! In addition to filming weddings all over US from coast to coast, we have filmed in Russia, Ukraine, Mexico, and Punta Cana! So we will go wherever you’ll have us! We provide a custom package built specif­i­cally for your event so that you will know exactly what the expenses are.

What type of equipment do you use?

When you invest in Aperina Studios for your wedding – you deserve the best! We have invested in cinema grade camera and lenses that give your wedding a more cinematic and hollywood look. More specifically, we use Canon EOS 5D Mark IIIs, Canon 5D Mark IVs  and Canon L series lenses. We also use professional grade audio equipment, Steadicam, sliders, monopods and tripods. We have lighting equipment to capture your event in the best possible light!

We don’t want a production made of our wedding. How are you able to capture all those beautiful moments?

We need to be hon­est with you. We are a lit­tle bit self­ish regard­ing our motives for NOT mak­ing your wed­ding day a “pro­duc­tion” either. We sim­ply can not afford for you or your guests to notice us. So relax. Wed­ding films, if cho­sen cor­rectly, are the best invest­ment you can make in your wedding. We don’t set up shots, and we don’t have cam­eras in anyone’s face. We cer­tainly don’t con­duct cheesy table interviews. We try to capture the “gen­uine” moments you have felt watching our films in our portfolio.

May I choose my own music for the video?

Yes and No. For both creative and legal reasons, we have full control over the music selection for your film. Not only do we have a better perspective on the ‘flow’ of your wedding day, we also utilize properly licensed music. Additionally, all the beautiful films you have seen on our website, we have personally selected the music. The newlyweds absolutely love our music selection. However, feel free to send us a few tracks – they will inspire us to find the perfect track.

Do I get to see ALL of the footage that you captured?

Not by default. The morning preparations, first look, pre-wedding events, cake-cutting, and party dancing are filmed subjectively for creativity, not for entire coverage. The parts of the day that are filmed entirely are the ceremony, formal dances and any toasts. These, in their entirety, are included in the Documentary Edits (Documentary Edits are offered as an add-on to our base package). You may also add-on a documentary edit for each pre-wedding event for an additional cost. In contrary, you may want to add on “RAW footage” into your package. We’ll give you a hard drive full of ALL of the footage we captured on your wedding days. Unedited.

What exactly is included in the Documentary Edits?

Think of documentary edits as a LIVE feed of your wedding ceremony and /or reception. So once the ceremony starts and the groom starts walking into the church/temple/venue, the edit starts there even though we have film prior to that. We finish the ceremony documentary edit when the ceremony is complete – when the officiant says “amen.” So if the ceremony was 1 hour in real life, the documentary edit of the ceremony will roughly be 1 hour. As for the reception. The documentary edit of the reception will start from the bride and groom entering the hall, continuing  with any toasts, speeches, formal dances or anything that we felt should be captured in it’s entirety. You don’t loose any footage that we have filmed throughout the wedding days (for example, before and after the ceremony/reception). That footage, including footage from the ceremony and reception, will be beautifully edited into the wedding feature film. So don’t worry, you will get to relive your full wedding when watching your wedding film.

How long does it take to receive my wedding film?

A cinematic short film add-on allows us to deliver your short film to you 2-3 weeks after your wedding. However, a full wedding feature film requires us to put in a lot more time to tell your wedding story perfectly. Depending on the season and the amount of pre-wedding events booked, cultural wedding films are generally delivered 7-10 months after your wedding.

Are we able to view our wedding film online?

Absolutely! Every film is delivered online on your custom Aperina Studios page (here is an example). If you have ordered any add-ons, they will also appear there. You can share your private link with your family and friends. Our website is designed to work with all mobile devices as well. Best of all, all the videos online are in HD.

Do you offer photography as well?

Yes. Our photographer is amazing. What is even more amazing is that we work together perfectly as a team. Instead of competing for a shot, we compliment each other, creating exceptional photographs and extraordinary films to make your story truly and unforgettably yours. As an incentive, we give you a $200 discount on both cinematography and photography packages. Check out our South Asian Photography Packages.
