What does Coverage mean?
Coverage hours is how long we are at the venue/event filming
The more hours, means the more time we have to film the best footage of your day.
It has no bearing on the length of the films we will make for your wedding/event.
The lengths of the films are explained in each package offering or addons.
What are the payment methods you accept
We accept payments by PayPal, Venmo or by check, mailed to our address.
You have 3 packages, but I am unsure on which to choose
We designed 3 packages to give our couples options when choosing the right one that fits their day and budget. Sandhill Limited is designed for smaller weddings at churches or venues, and the couple justs wants a short highlight film of their day. If needed though, you can choose from the Add On options, to add other film edits and time. Sandhill Base is designed for larger venues with an outdoor ceremony and reception party afterwards. It gives the couple more hours of coverage to help cover the day and offers a longer highlight film to showcase the special moments of their day, plus, it comes with the Full Ceremony Film. You can still choose from the Add On options to add other film edits and time, if needed.
Sandhill Complete works the same as the Base package but gives an additional 2-hour coverage, a longer Cinematic highlight film and all the Add Ons. This one is great for large venues where the couple will have it booked the entire day and gives plenty of hours of coverage. But you can choose to add MORE time on this package if needed.
Also, the pricing for each package not only covers the actual filming on the wedding day, but the many hours of editing required to craft each film in your package. As an example, an average highlight film takes between 10 and 20 hours to edit
How are contracts handled
We use DocuSign for all contracts.
It is an easy, digital way for all our clients to sign.
We simply send the contract by email or text, and you can then digitally sign it
(eSignature) and email or text back.
Do you have insurance
We carry $1 million dollars of liability coverage for all wedding events and venues.
Also, your venue and owners can be named on our insurance policy.
We can provide a certificate of coverage to the venue or couple 30 days before
your wedding day.
Do you offer photography as well
No, we do not, BUT we know many, very reputable and professional photographers that we recommend if needed.
How long does it take to deliver our wedding films
Generally we like to release the 1 Minute Teaser Film, one week after the wedding and then the Highlight Film around 2 to 4 weeks after the wedding and all other Add On Films within 2 months. Due to the number of weddings we have scheduled, during the spring or fall season, the times may vary. This is why we state 2 months in our contract for full delivery of all films, in your package.

What is your style of wedding filmmaking
Our style is definitely more on the dramatic, cinematic side. We feel that a wedding is a very serious commitment and we like to reflect that commitment in a dramatic way. We tend to have a more vintage look as well. We also love to incorporate audio and atmosphere into our films, to bring them to life.
What is your booking fee
We require a $750 non-refundable, booking fee at the time of signing and presenting the contract.
Can I choose my own music
Sandhill Films likes to retain full creative control of the films we produce, so that the music fits the "vibe" of the day. We also only use licensed music from sources Artlist, SoundStripe and MusicBed, to ensure that your wedding film will never be "dated" to a certain period of time and be legal to play on all social media.
Please Note: It is illegal to use copyrighted music on your wedding film, especially for public viewing on social media platforms. We do let couples choose a genre of music if they like.
I see you offer audio too?
YES! Before Sandhill Films, we actually started out as Grannys Studio. A full production recording studio and it still continues today. Over the years we have put together a couple of different PA systems to suit many needs and we now offer this for wedding and events. My son, Kory Middleton, heads this up and would LOVE to help you with all your audio needs.
