How far out should I book

The sooner the better. Often times couples book me  anywhere from a year or more in advance for weddings. It's an important day and it pays to get all your ducks in a row.

What's the process for meeting with you

Contact me via e-mail, text or a traditional phone call. We can either do a meeting in person or via Skype. It's always nice to see a person face to face when you're planning this very important aspect of your wedding.

How much is the deposit

Deposits for bookings are two hundred dollars. That locks in your day. We also offer payment plans. Full payment is fourteen days prior to your wedding date. 

Do you shoot destination weddings

Yes, however the fee does vary depending on location. Typically the fee encompasses such things as flight, hotel and travel to your wedding.

How many videos do i receive 

It all depends on which package you select. We have packages that have up to three videos. We also do offer full films, teasers, highlights. 

What is a teaser film

Quick social media post to share with friends and family within forty eight hours of your wedding. Think of it as an amazing trailer for you and your significant other. 

What is a highlight film

This is a four to five minute film which encompasses the best parts of your wedding day. This isn't your parents wedding video, this is paced like your own personal music video. No clunky narration from your uncle or aunt, just some great tunes.

What is the full film

This is between fifteen minutes to an hour. There are lots of aspects that will influence the length of this film. Speeches, special moments during the day, different locations. 

What is a love story

A love story is a great chance for us to meet and shoot a short film about how you met and fell in love. This is a great opportunity to show all your friends and family the beginning of your story. There's many ways we can create this film and we really love it the more you share, locations, stories, photos. 

Can we get all of the video that you shoot

We call this RAW footage and you can get it but you will have to select it along with the package it coincides with. This is all the footage, every little inch of it that was shot for the day.  This is all unedited and singular clips. You receive this on a SSD hard drive because of the amount of data.

Would you be able to provide referrals

Yes, please contact me for this request and I can send you a list of past clients. 

Can you help us out if we're on a budget

We offer multiple packages to fit most brides and grooms. In the instance that this isn't possible then we also offer payment plans. You can also place this on a bridal registry.  

Do you offer a second cinematographer 

Yes. I offer packages with an additional cinematographer. Check out my packages to see what fits you the best. Having a second filmer there means additional footage from different vantages and perspectives. 

Do you offer referral bonuses

Absolutely. This is a great way to help pay for your wedding film and also introduce me to new clients. Please contact me with additional questions.

Shawn and his assistant did such an amazing job at our wedding. A lot was captured that Mike and I had no idea what was going on at our wedding or forgot. Half the time we didn't realize things were being filmed!!! Everyone says it goes by so quick plus you get an adrenaline rush where your focus is nearly gone. So far I have been trying to recap and it's nearly impossible. We are both very blessed we hired a videographer to remember everything. It's not like the 1980s and no your iPhone can't capture every detail in a unique way. He brought his drone to take a group photo outside the church and also to get amazing shots. It looks like a movie preview! I can't say thank you enough to Shawn and his assistant. Thank you for the blessed memories we can rewatch over and share with the people who weren't able to make it. Also for capturing the people who may not be around much longer to see the joy on their face. If I had to do this all over again, I wouldn't think twice on who to choose. Hope your future endeavors are just as lucky as we are. And we wish you nothing but the best!

Shawn is a great photographer who is always aiming to get the right models and themes together to bring out the best edits possible! Always accommodating with dates and times and is quick with at getting edits back to the models!! Not many can say that is the case from my own experience.

Can't wait to shoot with you again!

Im a Realtor and Shawn did a video walk through for me of a house that I had listed. He was very professional. He worked well with the homeowner, answered all her questions to make her feel as ease. He had the video back to me very quickly. It was part of the reason why the home sold quickly after posting. I would recommend Shawn for any type of camera work. He knows his stuff and the outcome of his work is top notch! Thanks Shawn!

I contacted Shawn about 2 weeks before my wedding to check his availability and pricing. Not only was he available but was willing to drive 2.5 hours to a midday ceremony on such short notice. He did an excellent job for us and included drone shots from outside. He captured the entire ceremony as well as plenty of pre and post ceremony shots that we're forever grateful for. I would highly recommend SP Photography for any videography you're looking to have done!

I worked with Shawn at three weddings a month ago and he was awesome. He was so awesome that I hired him to shoot some promo material of myself. This guy is the real deal.
