How do I book a wedding?

Just call or e-mail us and tell us your wedding date. If we have the date available, we can tentatively put you on our calendar. From there, we will mail you a service agreement specifying all the terms of the particular package you have requested. When we receive your signed copy of the service agreement and your deposit check, that will constitute firm confirmation of that date.


How much is the deposit?

A minimum 20-percent deposit is required at the time of booking. The balance is due prior to or on the wedding day. Payments may be made by cash or a check payable to Studio M Video Production. Sorry, but we do not accept credit or debit cards.


What’s your cancellation policy?

You will receive a full refund of your deposit, unless the cancellation takes place within 30 days of the original wedding date. That helps us mitigate our losses, because at that point, it’s unlikely that we will be able to rebook that date on such short notice.


How far will you travel to shoot a wedding?

All package prices include travel expenses within a 30-mile radius of Maryville, TN, although we provide our wedding videography services to clients in Knoxville as well as surrounding counties like Blount, Sevier, Anderson, Loudon and others. Additional travel expenses apply for engagements outside the 30-mile radius.


What does your six-hour package cover?

First, note that on-location time does include set-up time, which generally takes just 15 to 30 minutes. Once we’re ready to shoot, we make ourselves available to shoot any aspect of your wedding day that you would like, including bridal dressing, photo sessions, guest arrivals, the ceremony, reception highlights and the bride and groom’s departure. We can also do pre-wedding-day shoots of photo sessions, rehearsal dinners, etc.


What if we book a four-hour package, but on the day of the wedding we realize we need you for five or six?

Last-minute extensions past the contracted time may be added at a rate of $100 per hour; however, additional fees are payable on the day service is rendered.


How many cameras do you use?

Two to three, depending on the setting. For the ceremony, I set up a stationary camera to get a wide shot of the wedding party, and I use one or two second cameras to get close-ups. Later, the different sets of footage are edited together seamlessly and in synch. For all other coverage, I use one camera to capture highlight moments.


What types of cameras do you use?

High-quality, Sony prosumer-level cameras, a Sennheiser wireless mic system and a Rode onboard camera.


What will you wear during our wedding ceremony?

I generally wear a solid black shirt, pants and shoes, in keeping with tradition. However, if you have a preference that I dress in a specific manner, I will do my best to accommodate your request.


What kind of music can I have in my video?

During the ceremony and portions of the reception, we generally try to use the actual live music that is playing during those events. During video montage segments, however, we will add instrumental background music from our extensive library that’s appropriate to the scene. Copyright law prohibits us or any videographer from using copyrighted music by your favorite artists.


How many DVDs will I receive with my package?

Three to five DVDs, depending on which package you purchase. All DVDs are produced with chapters and menu screens and feature a photo of the couple burned onto to the top side of the disk. Disks are presented in a full-size DVD case with custom artwork and menu. DVDs are usually shipped within three weeks following the wedding day. DVD copies (in addition to those included in a package) are available for $20 each and can be ordered any time, even after completion of the original order.
