Here are some of the questions we get asked the most. Take your time reading through them, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions that aren’t answered below.

 
 

Where are you based out of? Do you travel?

Our team is located in Bentonville, Arkansas. We frequently travel the state, region, and country to shoot, and are working on expanding to traveling the world. We’ll go just about anywhere in the name of story.


Do I have to hire the photo team if I hire the video team?

Not at all. While we love working with the photographers on the Miles Witt Boyer team we also frequently work with other photographers and photography teams. We pride ourselves on taking the team approach to every wedding, so regardless of who your photographer is you can rest easy knowing we will be great to work with - both with you and your vendors.


What is your turnaround time?

Typical turnaround time on our films is somewhere between 12-16 weeks, depending on which Essentials and/or Extras you purchase. We're happy to discuss expediting this time under special circumstances.

MWB Films went above and beyond for our wedding day! They not only provided us with the best video, but also made sure we were taken care of. They are true professionals. We will forever be thankful for the kindness and beautiful video they provided us!

Do you give raw, unedited footage?

We do not provide raw, unedited footage except for cases in which special circumstances arise. We believe that editing is half the magic of filmmaking, and is pivotal in our mission to provide the highest quality film(s) and service we can. We promise not to let you miss out on your memories or key aspects of your story.


What is your payment schedule?

To hold your date, we require a 33% retainer fee upfront when your contract is signed. We then collect your final balance between 7-14 days before your wedding day.


Can we use any music for our wedding film?

Not just any song can be used. Part of our process is licensing professionally composed music for your Essential edits. We spend several hours going through professional music libraries in order to find the perfect song for your film(s), pay for the license to the song, and make sure the legal end of things is squared away so you don’t have to worry about it.

From the moment they arrived on our big day, family and friends consistently commented on how professional and friendly they were.

YOU WILL NOT REGRET BOOKING THEM!

How do travel expenses work?

Rather than charge a set travel fee, all we ask is that you pay for the minimum (flights, transportation, lodging). As far as booking, we will handle flights and rental cars on our own. We prefer to book lodging as well but always welcome input regarding local hotels or Airbnb reservation options. We will make sure to confirm logistics and cost so there are no surprises on your end. Once booked, the payment for travel expenses is due within one week of receiving the invoice.


Do you bring a lot of gear to the wedding?

We believe in leaving a small footprint during the festivities. We bring only what’s necessary for proper coverage and typically try to pack everything into one messenger bag or backpack. We want all eyes on you for your wedding day, not on us.


Why do we need to have a film if we have photography?

A wedding film allows you to relive your big day in ways that photography alone simply can’t. Hearing the vows you spoke to your spouse, your father’s speech at your reception, and your friends laughter and cries of joy are something that only films are capable of delivering. We know wedding photography is a must, but a wedding film is something you will cherish forever.
