contact & support

We are committed to making this process as smooth and easy as possible for you.  We are always available for questions and will maintain contact with you throughout the entire process. Feel free to reach out at any time!  Your photographer and videographer will also be in touch (within about 2 weeks of booking).  They will set up a phone call with you to get to know you, learn what's important to you, and go over the details of your big day.

 our team

We have built an amazing team of wedding photographers and videographers that are all extremely professional and trained to deliver a high quality product.  Every lighting, location, climate, and client is different.  While variation always exists, we have all worked hard to develop a consistent style so you can rest assured that every member of our team will deliver quality content. You will be contacted by your videographer/photographer within about 2 weeks of booking. They will call you to introduce themselves and go over general details of the big day! There will be a second phone call the week before your wedding to finalize and confirm all details.

 our style

We love the fresh look of trendy imagery, but also see the importance of keeping a timeless, classic look that you will love for years to come.  So our team combines the best of both of these in our unique and beautiful style of photography and videography. The photos and videos on our website reflect this.  We are excited to accommodate your special requests regarding style, but we will capture your special day consistent with our style.  We advise against referring our team to the specific work of others, as it hinders our creative process.

 

 wedding day

Timeline

We are so excited to be a part of your special day!  We will work with you to determine what you would like captured and the best timeline to accommodate that. We are happy to capture any part of your day (getting ready, first look, ceremony, bridal party, family, reception). This is your day, and we are committed to giving you the coverage you need.  Your photographer and videographer will go over the timeline of your day with you so that everyone is on the same page.  

We will be at your venue a minimum half-hour before the ceremony begins. If you’d like extra shots of you getting ready just let us know and we are happy to be there earlier! In most cases we are able to capture getting ready shots, ceremony & family photos all within the hours allotted for the ceremony.

 

If you would like to add extra coverage time to your current package please contact Becca at becca@tmtweddings.com. Extra hours can be added at the rate of $150 per hour per team member. We do our very best to accommodate your specific needs and even allow extra hours to be added the day of your event when necessary. If adding hours the day of please let your team know how much additional time you would like to add and check availability with them. Your team will notify Becca of the additional coverage time and TMT Weddings will invoice you.

Meal Breaks

It is customary to allow for a meal break for every 5 hours worked. This does not include travel time. This meal break can be substituted by a meal provided at either your wedding luncheon or reception. 

Time Splitting

Your coverage hours depends on the package you purchased. You can split coverage into two periods (ceremony and reception) with one break (60 min or less) in between.

I am so beyond thankful I found you all. I cannot tell you how much your prices are helping me with our budget.

This also applies to wedding day.  You will receive 75+ fully-edited photos ready for digital download.  Full printing rights included.

 first look | bridal videos

First look/bridal videos will be edited and ready to play at your reception as long as a timely request is made and they are filmed at least three business days before your wedding day. We are also happy to edit up to 10 photos from your bridal session within 24 hours so you can print them out for your wedding.

 

 deposit

A non-refundable retainer is due to reserve your date. We require a 25% payment at the time of booking and the remaining 75% will be broken into two or more payments. If you need a more flexible payment plan please talk with us about various options-we are happy to work with you. When you are ready to book, we will send a contract and an invoice via email. The contract can be signed digitally, and the invoice can be paid online with a credit or debit card. You also have the option of setting up automatic payments if you'd like.

 travel fees

Depending on your location, travel fees may apply. If you are subject to travel fees, the amount will be calculated and clearly stated on your customized proposal. No additional travel fees will be added to the initial proposal amount unless your location changes.

 final payment

Final payment for services are due no later than one week before the day of the wedding. Feel free to pay anytime before the wedding date.

If you need to change your date for any reason, there is no fee. However, please reach out first to make sure we are available on your new date.  If you have to cancel all-together, the deposit is non-refundable.  

 date change

 insurance

TMT weddings is insured with Auto-Owner's Insurance Company in general liability coverage ($2,000,000 policy).  If your venue requires proof of insurance, we are happy to provide it.  

inclusivity and safe environment

We love capturing memories of all couples. We strongly disagree with any group or organization which discriminates on matters of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital, family, pregnancy status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran or citizenship status and any other characteristics which currently feel hate from others or groups.  We also ask that our team members are afforded respect and a safe work environment - any behavior that compromises the safety or well-being of our team members or constitutes a hostile work environment (including, but not limited to, unwelcome sexual advances and verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature) will not be tolerated.   

 

video

Audio of  Vows & Speeches

Your finished video will be between 6-12 minutes in length (depending on package) and will be highlight style. This means that continuous audio will not be recorded live as we will be shooting many clips at different angles. If you would like to add audio of vows & speeches into your video we are happy to do that for you for an additional charge.

Drone Footage

If you would like aerial shots of your venue on the day of the wedding, we are happy to provide that for you! We do not fly our drones indoors. Because of the licensing and equipment involved, there will be an extra fee of $200

NOTE: There are some areas that are considered no-fly zones and we aren't allowed to fly drones there. Drone footage will also depend on weather conditions. Drones can't be flown in inclement weather as it can damage the equipment and disrupt the footage.

Music Choice

We want this to be YOUR video, so we allow you to choose the music.  Copyright laws are very strict regarding the use of music in wedding videos, so we have four subscriptions to music sites from which you may select your songs. You don't need to download anything, just let us know what you decide! If you would prefer that we select you songs, that is fine as well.  If we don't receive your song selection before your wedding day, then our editing team will select songs that go well with your footage.

  • FYRFLY
    This is where you will find most of the mainstream songs.  If there is a pink "P" next to the song, there will be an additional $35 charge.  If you choose one of those songs for your video, we will send you an invoice for $35.

  • MUSICBED
    There are some great instrumental songs on this site. If you see a crossed out dollar sign by a particular song, there will be an additional $59 charge. If you choose one of those songs for your video, we will send you an invoice for $59.
