Why should we choose Copeland Film Company?
We believe you deserve a unique wedding film for your one-of-a-kind love story. We love what we do and are passionate about creating and delivering a special film for your special day. Our goal is to capture who you are as a couple, not just focus on the details of flowers, your dress and your centerpieces. We aim to capture your personalities, your relationship, your love for each other, as well as your family and all who attend. We know there are multiple wedding videographers in Bowling Green to choose from and we really do appreciate you taking the time to think about using us for your special day.
Do you use lights during the ceremony or reception?
Yes, we will use lights when necessary to provide lighting in some occasions. We want to be sure that your wedding video is of the highest quality and lighting plays a huge role in that.
Do you use drones for your videos?
Yes, we use a Mavic Pro drone that shoots video in high quality and provides aerial coverage of the venue and grounds. We include drone footage in every package. However, we do abide by local laws and won’t be able to fly in some circumstances, and due to weather conditions. If the laws and weather are on our side the day of your wedding, we will gladly fly the drone 🙂
Do we get to choose the music for our video?
The music industry is very tough on using music that is not licensed, therefore we are not allowed to use just any song in your wedding video. It would costs us thousands of dollars to license a popular song from an artist, if we are even able to get in touch with them. However, we do have a library of thousands of licensed songs that we purchase to use in your video. We choose the song based on the vibes we get from your wedding day, but we are always open to hear what kind of music you like.
Can we get the vows and toasts audio?
Yes. And we try to include that in our films. We will have multiple recorders with us and usually place a microphone on both the pastor and the groom. During the toasts, we will either work with the DJ or band to get sound or place an audio recorder nearby. We also do like to recommend having a microphone to use for the ceremony. It helps the crowd hear the ceremony as well as provides crisp and clear audio for your wedding video.
How long does it take to see our video?
It usually takes 10-12 weeks for us to get the video to you. We don’t want to rush editing your video, so please understand it may take some time. It also may take extra time during the fall wedding season due to popular demand.
Where do you travel to?
We are located in Bowling Green, Kentucky but are available for travel pretty much anywhere! This includes Hendersonville, Gallatin, Nashville, Owensboro, Lexington, Louisville and Evansville. Also, California, Maine, Australia, Ireland….you name it 🙂 We are always up for an adventure.
How do I book Copeland Film Co?
To book and hold your date, we require a 50% deposit of the total cost of your package. We accept cash, checks or major credit cards. You can even pay online.
How many videographers do you use?
We are a husband and wife team, so it will always be the two of us. Both of us have a camera and we set up a third stationary camera, as well. We want to ensure we get plenty of coverage for you.
How far in advance should I book a wedding videographer?
Ideally, you would book your videographer months in advance to ensure we are available for your date. However, if we are available and you wish to hire a videographer last minute, we are certainly open to working with you! Wedding planning can be overwhelming, we know.
I have a photographer, do I need a videographer, too?
Here’s something to consider – will your photographer get a recording of your vows, the laughter of your bridesmaids getting ready, the embrace from your father and his final words to you before he sends you off with your groom? Having a videographer will ensure you get to relive the day since it goes by so quickly. It is also a great way to share the day with those friends and family members who many not have been able to make it. Sharing 500 pictures from your day, or sharing a 10 minute video? Read our post about the 5 reasons you must hire a videographer.
Do we get a ceremony video with our package?
With each package, we provide a fully edited highlight video with music. At your request, we can provide a lightly edited ceremony video, as well.
Do you offer military discounts?
Yes! As a thank you for your service, we do offer military discounts. Please ask us about them!
