Fill out the contact form below and we’ll get this party started! We are currently booking 2021 and 2022 dates. To give our couples the best service, we take on a very limited number of 15 weddings per year. Our couples typically book us 8 to 14 months in advance and we do book up quite quickly. At Kemari Lyn Films, we believe love is love and we joyfully celebrate marriages of all genders, backgrounds, religions, and cultures.
Love, Kemari & Jacob
I'm so excited to work together! Filling out our contact form is the best way, and then we'll get in touch with you within 24 hours. We'll chat about you, your future spouse, and your wedding celebrations. We require both a 40% non-refundable retainer fee and a signed contract in order to book and secure your wedding date, film collection, and rates. The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days before your wedding date. Payment plan options after your retainer are available upon request.
we love you! How do we book you and reserve our date?
We deliver our wedding films digitally through a privately accessible online video gallery. Here you can view your films online on computers and mobile devices, share with others, and download your own copies for safekeeping. We don't offer DVDs or USBs because these physical formats deteriorate over time, can be faulty, may get lost, and also these formats are simply fading away as technology advances. Also, digital delivery provides full HD & 4K great quality. In the digital age we're in, online access and digital delivery is more reliable and enjoyable.
Do you provide raw footage?
How do you deliver the wedding films?
There is a long process to completing your films. I spend about 60+ hours editing each wedding. After the actual filming of the wedding, I offload and back up all of our media. Then I look through everything, filing and adjusting content as I go along. Next, I search for music, build a rough edit of the film, refine and complete the working version, adjust audio, color grade, re-watch the films and make sure everything's perfect, then export, and upload the films to the different platforms for delivery. The editing process takes quite a bit of time, and I (Kemari) personally hand edit and craft these special films for you. I want to make sure that each and every film is treated with the utmost care!
Not true raw footage, but we offer something better than that! There is still so much to be done after the wedding, so we do not provide our clients with actual raw video clips. This is similar to asking an artist to deliver a painting when all they have done is prepared the canvas. The raw footage is not a final or polished product and is not watchable in true raw state. We believe it's best for our couples to enjoy completed, final films and not just a folder with hundreds of unedited video clips in it. You can rest assured that your special moments will be displayed in your final films!
If you’re looking to see everything we captured from the day, this is the way to go:
The Wedding Legacy Documentary includes all the useable footage captured from the wedding day played back to back in chronological order with natural sound from the camera and/or microphones. It’s a lightly edited and color graded elevated home movie feel of the wedding day. Due to it’s nature, you’ll see some less cinematic moments and shots as well as a more “raw” video feel mixed in here.
Why do the films take weeks to be completed and delivered?
The Wedding Highlight Film, Full Ceremony Film, and any other wedding films you invested in are all delivered together typically between 3 to 4 months after the wedding date.
When will I receive my wedding films?
Highlight Films are our main wedding films that you'll watch and share constantly! Our 5-9 minute Highlight Films include the "highlights" of the big day from prep, ceremony, toasts, and reception moments all edited into a beautiful and story driven short film. To view some of our wedding highlight and social media trailers, click here! On top of the highlight film, we also offer a sneak peek trailer, a full ceremony film, a full toasts and formal dances film, a wedding legacy documentary, an engagement film, rehearsal dinner coverage, and multi-day coverage.
What are highlight films?
We believe in quality over quantity. We only take on a very limited number of up to 15 weddings per year in order to ensure that we are spending a good amount of intentional time and focus on each individual film. Every couple is important to us and we want to produce beautiful and story driven films so you can re-live your day for years to come!
How many weddings do you take a year?
Absolutely! We travel to any destination worldwide to capture your wedding celebration. Many couples also have us capture their rehearsal dinner and other festivities to further tell the story of the whole event. While we’re based in the Southwest Florida areas including Naples, Marco Island, Sarasota, Boca Grande, Tampa, St. Pete, we travel often. If your wedding is outside of these surrounding cities, we include our travel in the investment guide when you inquire. No place is too far to travel to capture your big day!
Do you travel and do destination weddings?
We want to create wedding films that you will want to re-watch over and over again! We look for those natural, intimate, sincere, and fun moments. Our focus as a videographer is your story. The story that brought you two to your big day. We want to get to know you and we want the wedding films to reflect you as a couple. We make a point to capture the footage in an authentic and non-obtrusive way. Investing in quality wedding films will allow you to continuously experience the love and excitement of your wedding day. The videos and your pictures are all you have left when the day has ended. It is extremely special for you to not only relive the day yourselves and people who were there, but also to share your wedding videos — the movement, the audio, and the feelings from the day with those that weren’t there, like distant relatives, your future kids, and future grandchildren, etc. You all will be able to hear your vows and speeches, see your dances, and feel the true emotion through your wedding films.
