Here are some FAQ we thought might help you when thinking about hiring a wedding videographer.
Q: How do I book with Rivion Weddings?
Q: What happens after booking?
A: Once a package is selected (or a custom package is designed), all we need is a deposit and signed contract and you’re good to go! Generally after booking we won’t need to correspond until around 30 days prior to your event. However we welcome any and all communication between booking and your special day.
Q: Do we have to pay the full amount up front?
A: We only require a 50% deposit to hold your date. The final balance is due 30 days prior to your event.
Q: Is my deposit refundable?
A: The deposit is not refundable. When we book and hold a date, we are then telling other clients we are unavailable for that date and forfeiting potential business. That said, please communicate with us the circumstances as there have been instances where an equitable outcome has been found.
Q: What kind of equipment do Rivion videographers use?

Q: How long after my wedding will I receive my video?
A: Contractually we promise to deliver 8-10 weeks from your event but our intent is always to deliver much sooner when possible.
Q: Can I make revisions to the video?
A: We do allow one round of revisions. Additional rounds will incur a cost.
Q: Can I pick my own music?
A: Yes, kind of. You can choose your own music but you will be limited to licensed music. This can best be explained by checking out our blog post on the subject: Music for Wedding Videos
Q: Do you do drone coverage?
A: Absolutely! However it should be noted that drone coverage can be subject to weather conditions or zoning. Particularly around the DMV there are many no-fly zones. If you’re interested in adding drone coverage, please let us know if you’re OK with the footage not being from the actual event date. In some cases we can come out the day before or after when weather is an issue.
Q: Do I have to choose a Rivion package or can I customize to my specific event?
A: We pride ourselves on being flexible so you can absolutely start from scratch and design a package that suits the specifics of your day.
