“In the beginning stages of our wedding planning, I wasn’t even considering having video. Eventually my mother-in-law talked sense into me and I started doing my research.
With all the companies out there, there was nothing that initially caught my eye. I wasn’t looking for a videography company that did long, drawn-out wedding video’s where your family is forced to either watch the whole thing, or you have to fast-forward through.
Then I received a recommendation to check out Between Sleep & Awake. My photographer had worked with her a number of times, and mentioned her style was cinematography. like a mini movie/short film! I was so excited, I e-mailed right away, and within a short time I had our contract mailed to me!
She was willing to work with us which was one of my worries, because they are located on the Jersey Shore, and we are much North of that in the Hudson Valley area of New York.
Having never met in person until the day of our wedding, I felt like I already knew her…nothing but great remarks from our wedding party about her and her team. Sooo incredibly comfortable to work with, and those brides that worry about having a camera in your face, it’s nothing like that!
We were given our ‘teaser’ highlight film within two weeks after our wedding, which consisted of an amazing 3 minutes, it gave just the right amount of tease, and captured the most memorable moments partnered with an awesome song choice of hers.
We paid very little extra to enjoy a slightly longer cinema style video (because they typically run around 8-10 minutes) and for her travel, but it was nothing short of worth it!
They will give you, upon request, (or maybe it’s standard) some raw, un-edited footage on a separate chapter of your DVD..for those brides worried about not catching enough of your vows and such. We are so excited to see our day captured on film, and in the style of Dana Stanley and BS&A.”
