Virtual Reality Wedding Frequently Asked Questions FAQ
Q: Why should I add Virtual Reality 360 video to my budget when I’m already spending so much on photography and maybe even a videographer?
Motion video and beautiful photographs are great but they will not feel the same as being a person at your wedding witnessing everything around. Couples frequently tell us their virtual reality video helps them relive their special day in the most real and best way possible. The VR wedding video experience is far above and beyond what could be captured by other cameras and gives you the freedom to see what you want at any time
Q: Why would I want a wedding video?
The technology and wedding video industry has advanced in just the last few years and keeps evolving quickly. Today’s wedding video can be experienced in virtual reality and feels more like you are really there enhancing all the love, feelings, emotions, and special moments of your wedding day. These are the experiences you will look back on years from now and be able to share with your family, friends, and maybe even grandchildren. To view examples of what you have to look forward to, check out media channels

Q: Do we have to “Act” out our wedding or do re-enactments?
Firstly: we will get involved or be as discreet as you are comfortable with. Our professionals are there to capture the wedding as it happens but may guide you through some times where we want to make the largest impact. There is no need to fake scenes and usually few reasons to do entire sequences over, your wedding will be a hit and look great just as it was. Just as a photographer would ask for a pose, you might be asked to walk through some small special events to assure the best results
Q: How do you work with other vendors?
Our team will work with other media professionals to make a minimal impact on your wedding and reception. We will communicate with the photographer and others to coordinate and work with them sharing ideas and ways to capture the day. We usually will let the photographer lead and get everything we need alongside others. We will many times take photographs and “traditional” video shots to help enhance the final immersive 360 virtual reality wedding video

Q: How do you choose music for my video?
You can request the style or genre of music if you want for your VR wedding video. We will also try to help select the best fitting music if you do not have a preference and either way, we will look for the sound and provide you samples (from online websites) where the songs can be purchased legally then you can give the final approval of the song. If you are going to use commercially licensed music (We are not in the business of enforcing your legal copyrights) we will use it but it is something we try to avoid to keep a positive online presence
