About this pro

Ryan was very responsive and made sure he understood what we were looking for before the wedding day. We appreciated meeting with him before hand as well as how organized he is. He was very positive on the day of and had great suggestions on the schedule due to lighting and timing of the sunset. He didn't mind adapting to get the best shots and always had a smile on his face!Mar 8, 2018
It was so wonderful to work with Ryan and team! The quality of work that they do is outstanding! The finished video really captures all the special moments of our wedding day and we are so glad we went with Seattle Wedding Videography! Ryan was excellent at communicating what he needed from us and explaining everything clearly. Sarah who shot our wedding was so friendly, professional and excellent at her job. I am so grateful and thankful that I came across Ryan at the seattle wedding show and was thankful that his pricing allowed us to have a videographer at our special day!Mar 4, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's actually not complicated at all. Once a potential client submits their details to me via the wedding estimate request form on my website, I always respond quickly and provide a customized quote that fully explains everything as well as cost, based on the details provided. Our reviews often attest to the quickness of my responses.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Here's how it happens, and it couldn't be easier! Here are the under-15-super-simple-steps-to-booking-Seattle-Wedding-Videography: 1) You get proposed to in a most excellent way, and decide that you want to spend the rest of your life with the love OF your life! (Congrats and two-thumbs up, by the way!) You decide, "Hey, we should get a videographer for our wedding!" (Again, two thumbs up.) 2) You contact Seattle Wedding Videography by filling out an online estimate request or calling in. 3) We respond with a detailed estimate with an automatic 10% off and great package pricing 4) After careful consideration requiring less than five seconds due to our incredible reputation and production style (humbly speaking!), you book Seattle Wedding Videography from an online contract approval link found in your estimate. You then pay your deposit which is usually a third up front. (Your balance is due the week of the wedding). In either case of payment, you can send in a check or pay online or over the phone securely with a credit card. 5) Upon booking, we schedule an introductory meeting with you, and coffee's on us! We'll even buy you a muffin or that banana you're eyeing on the Starbucks counter. We'll find out how you met and how you proposed, and explain the entire process, from start to finish, of what you can expect from Seattle Wedding Videography as your wedding day videographer extraordinaire. 6) Also upon booking, we send you a Videography Prep Sheet for you to fill out in advance, which provides us all the details we need in order to film your Wedding Day without having to pepper you with questions! 7) We show up with a genuine smile and film your Wedding Day. And if you have a multi-day or multi-venue wedding, we can do that too! 8) We can even transfer your footage to your laptop right then and there, so you can take your footage with you and enjoy it on your honeymoon! Most clients send us on our way with a hard drive, so we can always get it to you later as well. 9) Under 2 weeks following your Wedding Day, you receive a Review video so that you can review our production and make any changes you'd like. These changes include removal and addition of scenes/elements, font & coloration changes, stylization changes, music additions/changes, etc.. We want you to be *utterly* happy with your video, forever! 10) We take your changes, render the final video and await professional photos from your photographer for your disc packaging and disc's menu screen. Upon receiving your photos, we create packaging and send you examples for you to also be able to review/change/approve. 11) If you didn't request video production, we can send you an estimate for just the raw footage, and you can produce it yourself. 12) Everyone smiles and thinks, "wow, that was easy...and so much fun!" 13) Yay! YOUR music. YOUR edits. YOUR changes. YOUR tastes. At Seattle Wedding Videography, YOU have the final say before we do the final burn!
