#RANawaywithMartha Wedding Blog 6: My Chosen Photo and Video Coverage Team + Tips in Choosing your video team and theme + Wedding Photos and SDE!



In any wedding, couples have their non- negotiables; for my husband, it's food that's why he went all out and didn't skimp so much on the budget. For me, it's wedding coverage; Because I'm a content creator and I want people who are on the same page as me to document my most memorable day.

I'd be honest; I wanted Treehouse and Nice Print Photo to cover my wedding, but their rates are just way out of our budget. So I set out and looked for up and coming creatives in the wedding industry that have the same aesthetic as my preferred photo and video teams, and have finally settled for this husband and wife duo who don't only cover weddings...they tell stories.



After sifting through dozens of videos and wedding coverage teams, I decided to go for Meg and Jane because of their aesthetic, romantic vibe, and the way they create their videos: it's telling a love story, not just covering a wedding. Although fairly new in the industry, Meg and Jane is one of the up and coming wedding photo and video teams in Manila because of their impressive, cinematic concepts!

Meeting with Meg and Jane and Day One Project

Jane Moreno, the JANE of Meg and Jane, is the one who answers customer inquiries and I appreciate her prompt replies; they're also fairly easy to work with and I felt at ease on my wedding day because I felt that they knew what they were doing. I also loved the fact that Meg and Jane were present in my wedding to head their pack.

Our wedding footages were turned over in this gorgeous velvet box and hard drive!

The package I purchased was Wedding Photo + Video coverage; it's inclusive of an SDE (Same Day Edit video), photo and video coverage, footages, aerial videography and out of town fee; the footages were turned over in this gorgeous velvet box and hard drive (yes, we got to keep the hard drive!); plus points for the hard drive! They turned over the footages in a little over one week--didn't expect it would be that fast, but it's very much appreciated!

Our package, including the add- ons aerial videography and out of town fee, is around P120,000.00; Meg and Jane is a semi- premium wedding coverage company, but as the old saying goes: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and my husband and I did; our wedding photos and videos came out the way we envisioned it, plus they are professional!

TIPS IN CONCEPTUALIZING YOUR WEDDING SDE VIDEO:
1. Think of a concept; it doesn't have to be too detailed because your wedding coverage team will expand on this as it's their job; for our concept, we told Meg and Jane that we wanted ours to be light- hearted, funny, and romantic.
2. Choose a wedding theme song for your SDE; if you don't have one in mind, ask your chosen team for options and recommendations; this will depend on the overall concept of your SDE.
3. Inform your team of the mandatory footages in the video; do you want more shots of you and your husband/wife? More shots featuring the priest and homily? More shots of your wedding vows? More shots of your family? Balance it out.

TIPS IN CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING COVERAGE TEAM:
1. Set your budget for wedding coverage; it will be easier and quicker to filter your list this way.
2. Watch, watch, watch; check, check, check. Make it a point to watch their videos and check their photos to get a feel of their aesthetic in order to know if it matches yours.
3. Read up on a lot of testimonials; you don't want to deal with a headache on your wedding day, most especially with a very important supplier.
4. Photos and videos are the only surviving memories of your wedding so make sure you entrust it to a great team; piece of advice, if you have to shell out more to afford a really good team, then do so because as I said, you get what you pay for and great talent and professionalism ain't cheap; you can easily earn back what you spent, but the time spent and memories made in your wedding are hard to recover so make sure these are properly documented.

And here's your most awaited part: our wedding photos and same day edit video!

So many elements to handle and settle all at the same time. Despite the hardships, the wedding looks so effortless. Kitang kita naman lahat ng hirap ay nag pay off sa mga printed photos.
