Afterglow Weddings Maui realizes that every wedding is unique so we make it easy to create a custom package that perfectly suits your needs.  Tell us your vision and we’ll produce a stunning visual memory that will expand your love with every viewing.   Above all, we are storytellers, and combine world class cinematography, personal interviews and a passion for film-making to produce a gorgeous wedding video that will be cherished for generations to come.

The 4 packages listed below are a great place to start.  They were specifically designed to document the wedding of your dreams while still fitting within a wide range of budgets.  Every package includes the first 1.5 consecutive hours of filming coverage, which is perfect to cover the ceremony and events immediately afterwards.  Consecutive hours of coverage is how long we are at your wedding filming, not the final length of your video.  If you would like coverage of your reception we can easily add on more time.

 

The primary factors that influence the price of a custom quote package are:

1) The number of consecutive hours of filming

2) The number of cameras and operators that film your wedding

3) Your choice of package enhancements

 

We also provide you with many interesting options that include:

• Aerial drone shots - Get an amazing bird's eye view of your wedding!

• Deluxe Highlight Montage - The best parts of your entire celebration set to your favorite music.  Your friends will love to see the most magical moments of your entire day in an inspiring 3 - 5 minute piece.

• Love Story - A beautifully produced feature that tells the story of your courtship and love.

• Same Day Edit - Film your wedding in the morning and share it with guests that night.

• Projector and Screen at Reception - Premiere your love story, slideshow, or same day edit with our stunning video projection equipment, or have visuals for your dance party.

• Online Premiere - Share your wedding with family and friends around the globe with password protected internet streaming.

• Live Web Broadcast - There is no limit to how many guests you can have with real-time internet streaming of your wedding.

• And Much More! - Full details are listed below.

 

Really, the sky is the limit for what you can do!  Our filming style is fresh, modern and unobtrusive, but we also love to get creative, so don’t hesitate to express anything else you would love to see.  

 

AFTERGLOW PACKAGES:

 

~CRYSTAL PACKAGE~ 

•  1.5 consecutive hours of filming coverage with 1 HD camera and 2 wireless mics

•  1 delivery format of choice (digital download or Bluray disc)

•  Light editing

Our best budget option, the Crystal Package includes enough time to cover all of your ceremony and key events.  Most wedding ceremonies are 15 to 30 minutes long so there is plenty of time left to get some romantic shots at sunset, along with coverage of the gorgeous Maui scenery.

'Light editing' is making sure all the cuts are clean and smooth, with nice titles and transitions, as well as removing any dead space or awkward moments that aren't aesthetically pleasing.  If your wedding is longer than 1.5 hours it's easy to add more filming coverage.

Why wait for snail mail?  View your video as quickly as possible by picking the eco-friendly digital download option.

 

~SILVER PACKAGE~ 

•  1.5 hours of filming coverage with 2 HD cameras (with 1 operator) and 2 wireless mics

•  3 to 5 minute Deluxe Highlight Montage set to your favorite music

•  1 delivery format of choice (digital download or Bluray disc)

•  Detailed editing

The Silver package includes 2 HD cameras for significantly better wedding coverage.  One camera is free to focus on important details, like the ring going on your finger or first married kiss, while the other camera (on a tripod) captures the entire wedding party.  One camera is adequate but can't capture close-ups, a wide view or guest reactions all at once.

Another bonus is the Deluxe Highlight Montage, which is a beautifully edited piece that features the most magical moments of your entire celebration.  You can pick your favorite love song, or portions of two songs to edit the video to.  This is something that you're going to love to share with your family and friends, as it highlights the essence of your wedding in one enchanting bite.

The Deluxe Highlight Montage typically contains pre-ceremony shots of you getting ready and location scenery, as well as moving dialogue from your vows or guest speeches.  It focuses on all the details that you chose so carefully, like your dress, flowers, and rings, and often highlights footage from your gorgeous sunset photo session.  You will receive the highlight montage as a separate digital file (in addition to your complete wedding video), which is perfectly optimized to share on Facebook or YouTube.

 

~GOLD PACKAGE~ 

•  1.5 hours of filming coverage with 3 HD cameras with 2 camera operators and 3 wireless mics.

•  3 to 5 minute Deluxe Highlight Montage set to your favorite music

•  2 delivery formats (the digital download and Bluray disc are included)

•  Detailed editing

The primary feature of the Gold Package is the additional camera operator.  Having a 2nd camera operator for the ceremony is highly recommended, as it's the best way to capture the close-ups of your rings and vows, the setting and the reactions of your loved ones.  A 2nd camera operator can roam around and rapidly adjust their shot to zero in on what's important to you.

Also, the additional 3rd HD camera is set up to capture the wide shot, which insures that absolutely nothing is missed.  This arrangement covers the complete story of your wedding and beautifully enhances the production value of your video.

Finally, the additional wireless mic can directly record musicians, additional speakers or the house audio system. 

 

~DIAMOND PACKAGE~ 

•  1.5 hours of filming coverage with 4 HD cameras with 3 camera operators and 3 wireless mics

•  3 to 5 minute Deluxe Highlight Montage set to your favorite music

•  A custom menu with music of choice (for Bluray disc option)

•  2 delivery formats (the digital download and Bluray disc are included)

•  Love Story interview that is integrated into an extended highlight montage

•  Aerial drone video of your wedding location

•  Detailed editing

This package is an amazing value and you get it all!  It features a Love Story interview (usually filmed on a separate day) which is a beautifully produced segment up to 8 minutes in length that captures the essence of your love.  It’s like a mini-documentary, told in your own words, about how you met, your special moments together, and your dreams of the future.  A love story is the perfect way to share the details of your courtship with your guests by projecting this video at your wedding reception.

The heart of the Love Story segment is usually based on interviews (both separate and together) with fun, insightful questions, but it can also include baby pictures, courtship photos and interviews of family and friends—really, any multimedia content you desire.  However, the love story can be completely told with music, written words and pictures too, and doesn't necessarily require an on-camera interview.

Other noteworthy features of this package include spectacular aerial drone shots of your wedding (before or after the ceremony), extra wireless mics, and 4 HD cameras with 3 camera operators.  The extra cameras with operators are the absolute best way to tell the complete story of your wedding.

 

PACKAGE ENHANCEMENTS

 

I’ve detailed the wide variety of enhancements you can choose from below.  Please feel free to mix and match anything you desire, or have fun dreaming up ideas of your own.  We had one bride suggest hiding a tiny GoPro camera in her bouquet--now that's a cool idea!  We have endless creative ideas that will make your video exceptional.  Call us anytime to talk it over.

 

Additional Hours of Coverage

Every package includes the first 1.5 consecutive hours of filming coverage.  Consecutive hours of coverage is how long we are at your wedding filming, not the final length of your video.  If your wedding is longer than 1.5 hours you are going to need more coverage, which is $125/hr. per camera operator.

If the wedding coverage you need is highly broken up (such as a morning ceremony with a big break in between, and then the reception), you are going to need a custom quote for the time.

 

Additional Cameras and Operators 

Adding a 2nd or 3rd camera and operator beautifully enhances the complete story of your wedding.  One camera is adequate but can't capture close-ups, a wide view or guest reactions all at once.  Additional camera operators can roam around and rapidly adjust their shot to zero in on what's important to you, as well as compensate for unexpected conditions.  Extra camera angles insure nothing is missed and provide complete coverage of all those moments you will love to see again and again.

 

Deluxe Highlight Montage (3 - 5 minutes) 

This beautifully edited piece features the most magical moments of your entire celebration.  You can pick your favorite love song, or portions of two songs to edit the video to.  This is something that you're going to love to share with your family and friends, as it highlights the essence of your wedding in one enchanting bite.

The highlight montage typically contains pre-ceremony shots of you getting ready and location scenery (if you want that filmed), as well as moving dialogue from your vows or guest speeches. It focuses on all the details that you chose so carefully, like your dress, flowers, and rings, and often highlights footage from your gorgeous sunset photo session. 

You will receive the highlight montage as a separate digital file (in addition to your complete wedding video), which is perfectly optimized to share on Facebook or YouTube.  You will love the comments and rave reviews from your social network!

Password Protected Internet Streaming for 1 month

Your complete wedding video will be uploaded to my professional streaming website for all your friends and relative to see.  This is perfect for anyone who can't travel to Hawaii for your special day, such as a friend with small children, or an elderly family member who can't leave the house.

The crisp HD quality streams flawlessly and looks beautiful on smart phones, tablets, and flat screen TVs. All you need to do is forward them a link along with the password protected access code, and you can share your day with everyone easily.

This option also includes links for downloading your complete wedding in multiple formats (Original quality, 1080p HD, 720p HD, and Standard Definition). This is one of most amazing and economical way to share your wedding video with your entire wedding party.  Everything is password protected, and no one can download the video unless you choose to give them the link.

 

Same Day Edit or Rushed Online Delivery-  Custom Quote

 A same day edit is the perfect way to share your wedding ceremony at your reception.  Some couples elect to have a small morning ceremony, and then a big (or REAL big) wedding reception party.  It's just not logistically possible to have 500 people at your wedding, but you can share your video with a crowd of any size in the evening.

Same day edits require a custom estimate because there are so many variables involved, such as:

1. The time and distance between the wedding and reception.

2. The finished length of the same day edit.

A rushed online delivery is often needed as well, such as when you have a small Maui wedding but then fly back home for a big reception.  There are many variables involved, so it's best to get a custom quote to fit your unique situation.

 

Aerial Drone Video 

Drone Option 1

A bird's eye view of your wedding is simply amazing!  If you order a dedicated drone operator for 60 minutes, they will film gorgeous setting shots of your location before the wedding begins, and shots immediately after your wedding, like an aerial family photo.  Also, don't hesitate to get creative.  The sky is the limit for what we can do!  It's not recommended that a drone is flying during the ceremony, because the faint buzzing sound can be a little annoying, but the drone can take off right after you say 'I DO!', and catch you walking out. 

Drone Option 2

The 15 minutes of drone coverage option is basically one drone flight after the wedding.  The typical shots usually include an aerial family shot, and custom shots of you during your photo session.  This can be really creative and fun, and adds a ridiculously cool perspective to your wedding video!. This option does not include a dedicated pilot, so when the drone is flying, only the aerials can be filmed (unless you order extra camera operators for your wedding).

 

Love Story 

A love story is your story, a beautifully produced segment up to 8 minutes in length that captures the essence of your love.  It’s like a mini-documentary, told in your own words, about how you met, your special moments together, and your dreams of the future.   It's the perfect way to share the details of your courtship with your guests by projecting this video at your wedding reception.

The heart of the video is based on interviews (both separate and together) with fun, insightful questions, but it can also include baby pictures, courtship photos, and interviews of family and friends—really, any multimedia content you desire.  The love story interview is usually filmed on a separate day before your wedding, and is then integrated into your deluxe highlight montage. However, the love story can be completely told with music, written words and pictures too, and doesn't necessarily require an on-camera interview.

A love story is an excellent way to share your passion for each other with the world, as well as a comprehensive piece of family history that will be cherished by generations to come.

 

Projector and Screen at Reception

We provide a 6000 lumen event projector with a 10' professional screen to premiere whatever multimedia content you desire.  The image quality is stunning, and the lamp is bright enough pierce through any competing lighting.  It's the perfect way to share a slide show or custom film about your courtship. 

Here's some additional ideas to utilize a projector and screen:

•  We'll create a custom light show based on any theme as you dance the night away, much like what you see at special events and night clubs.  Examples include a vintage themed wedding, modern or disco.

•  We'll edit a professional multimedia film for your reception utilizing your own pictures, music and video clips.

 

Custom Slideshow (for Reception)

We edit a professional slideshow, complete with titles, to be shown at your reception.  It usually features some of your baby pictures to start with, followed by some growing up shots, then your courtship photos.  The typical length for this presentation is 5 to 6 minutes, and can include up to 72 photos.

 

Unedited Footage 

All Afterglow Packages include a polished, edited copy of your wedding video.  However, there is sometimes a little extra scenery, a funny 'blooper', or 2nd take of a best wishes message that you might enjoy seeing.  Also, you can often pull great still shots from the unedited footage, as single frames.  We can send you the unedited, raw files on a USB stick (the price of the USB stick is included).
