FAQ

INTERVIEW

When does the interview happen?


We need to do this 2-3 months before the wedding day. Editing the interview is what takes up the majority of our time and emotional effort, so we always need a head start.




How long is the interview session?


You’ll be doing the interviews individually, for about an hour per person. This might sound like a long time, but it flies by much faster than you would think!




How do I prepare for the interview?


We won't be giving you a list of guide questions — because there isn't one! We also arrive not knowing what we're looking for. All we ask is that you come relaxed, open, and ready to dive inward in some capacity. Try not to rehearse anything in your head. You have permission to make mistakes, as does anybody. We embrace imperfection.




What if I'm based abroad? How do we do the interview?


It’s crucial that we get to do the interviews face to face. If you're based abroad, we can do it when we fly in a day or two before the wedding. A Same-Day Edit would not be possible in this case unless we can somehow arrange to meet a few months prior.





OUTPUT

What is the difference between The Wedding Portrait and the Same Day Edit?


The Wedding Portrait is our regular package. It includes the interview session and documentation of your wedding day. The finished film will be sent to you a month after.

If you’d like the film to be edited on the spot and screened on the same day, you may avail of the Same Day Edit. This is optional, and only available as an add-on. Since this is a rush-job by definition, a refined version will be submitted a month after the wedding.

Our team size also changes. With a Same Day Edit, we are a total of 4 on the team, but only 2 without.




Do you submit raw footage?


We like to keep raw footage off our official list of deliverables because they would naturally contain all our mistakes. But if you’d really like a copy, please let us know. We’d be more than happy to oblige.




How is the final product submitted?


The final film will be sent to you in full resolution through digital means, and a copy will be uploaded on our Facebook page for easy sharing.





CREATIVE

How is the music selected?


We choose music based on its emotional qualities and how that supports the story. We also take implicit cues from the couple. This is a crucial creative decision for us, so we ask for your trust on this one! Licensing is done via Musicbed.




How would you describe your style/aesthetic?


We might describe our style as authentic and uncontrived. These admittedly sound like buzzwords but we can’t think of anything more appropriate. Aesthetics are important to us, but not nearly as important as being truthful. As documentarians and storytellers at heart, we believe there is beauty in cadidness and vulnerability. That’s why we don’t direct when we shoot, or use big bulky equipment. We don’t create “perfect shots” but capture events as they unfold on their own.




Why don't you use a drone?


Don’t get us wrong, drone footage is breathtaking and offers a spectacular view of the world. We just prefer to draw closer to you than have a bird’s-eye view.





BOOKING

How early/late can I book Good Wolf Films?


We usually accept bookings as early as 1 to 1.5 years before the wedding date. As much as we would like to, we will not be able to accommodate projects with a lead time shorter than 2 months.
