Elopement video process


Remote meeting

Send a message and ask for availability. If I'm free, we'll organize a relaxed remote call where we get to know each other and talk about the vision of your wedding adventure.



After the remote meeting, you will receive a completely customized video package proposal based on your vision. We modify it until it feels right for you.



When we have found the right video package for you, the filming of your elopement is booked by signing a written contract and paying a booking fee.



Once the filming of your elopement is locked down, it's time for planning. Together, we will come up with the activities, locations and ideal scheduling for your adventure.



The elopement adventure begins and I will join you to document it beautifully and in a story-like way. Above all, let's take it easy, and not make a performance out of it.



After the adventure, you will receive a beautiful and emotional short film, through which you can live everything again - and share it with your loved ones, if you feel like it.

Questions and answers

Elopement Video FAQ

How much is the investment?

Näytä vastaus

Prices start at €3,500 but every elopement adventure (and the need for planning and organizing it) is unique. So the pricing is always case-specific. I will give you a video package proposal after our first remote meeting. We will modify it together until you feel it's the right package for you. And don't forget – it's always okay to back out, if you feel like we are not the right fit.

How is the reservation and payment done?

Näytä vastaus

Reservation is done by signing a written contract and paying a reservation fee. The amount of the reservation fee is 40% of the price of the video package. The latter 60% of the package is charged 30 days before the wedding date.

Do you film elopements anywhere in Finland?

Näytä vastaus

Short answer; yes, I do!

What is the best time to elope in Finland?

Näytä vastaus

If you are looking to elope in the winter, I would strongly suggest March. The average temperature is -5°C, there is the most snow and there's eight hours of daylight. The daylight is super important when filming your adventure. In a way, we are chasing it. Compared to January, the day is twice as long in March. On top of that, January is always really really cold.

If you're looking to elope in Autumn, I suggest September. Especially if you're planning to elope in Lapland. Go ahead and Google "lapland ruska" and see how amazing the nature is.

In summer I would maybe try to avoid July, since that is when people are having their vacations and therefore all the prettiest places to shoot video are easily crowded.

What if we are really camera shy?

Näytä vastaus

Don't worry. Almost none of my past wedding couples have had previous experience of being in front of a camera. I will do my best to create a relaxed atmosphere. Even though the main idea is to document everything in a raw manner, I will quickly jump in to direct you whenever needed.

What is the delivery time for the video?

Näytä vastaus

The finished video will be delivered within 12 weeks after the elopement adventure. The delivery time depends on how many videos are in the editing queue before yours. The editing queue is longest in summer time and shortest in winter time.

Can any background music be used in the video?

Näytä vastaus

Unfortunately, no. As the creator of the video, I am responsible for copyright compliance. That's why I only use legally licensed songs in elopement videos. The music libraries I use are Musicbed, Epidemic Sound and Artlist.

Can you take photos too?

Näytä vastaus

This is possible in addition to videography at an extra cost, but I strongly recommend booking a separate photographer so that we don't have to make compromises when filming. When booking, I can give recommendations of photographers with whom cooperation at previous weddings has been great. I only recommend photographers with whom I have shot before. Good dynamics and chemistry between me and a photographer guarantees the best end result.
