What is your approach to filming a wedding day?

Our approach in filming a wedding day is purely candid storytelling, not stage direction. We’ll still interact with you of course, and have a laugh every now and then, but we don’t want to interrupt with the flow of your day. Experience has shown us that this is the best way to capture those real, natural moments as they happen. Sometimes we also have to stage few moments and scenes so that we can make a beautiful story out of it. Don’t worry we are here to make your wedding into a fairy tale.

What is a Pre wedding shoot or outdoor shoot ?

A pre wedding shoot or outdoor shoot is a short film that represents the couple. We do have different themes and ideas that you can choose from, but the purpose of having a Pre-Wedding Film is to tell YOUR story and your beautiful moments.The ability to watch it with all your friends and family at the very best time, the day itself, is an incredibly powerful thing – this is where the tears and laughs flow. It brings us so much joy to see the pure emotion these films unlock, and we look forward to sharing this on your wedding too. Please contact us for more details about these options.

How do you present yourselves on the wedding day?

We will come with smart casual attire. We have no company uniform because we feel that even though we come from one company, we are all different individuals with different personalities. We are not a wedding factory; our films are never the same, so neither should our look.

I never really saw or heard you much on my wedding day. Did you guys do any work?

Well, we hope the finished product will answer that one! We will be mostly silent when we’re shooting, for two reasons. The first is that we don’t want our voice recorded in our shots. The second (and most important) is that we actually strive to be invisible so we can capture natural moments without prompting. Though we will interact a lot and will keep you comfortable .

OK, I get that you’re great storytellers. Nice. But what about the equipment? You haven’t mentioned that! Am I going to look good on my video?

Well, you’re right, we don’t brag about equipment because ultimately we don’t rely on it to tell our stories – that’s more our natural sense of framing and observation. However, you’ll be pleased to know that Cinewedding by Nabhan Zaman uses all the latest bells and whistles in wedding video production, including Glidecams, Sliders, Monopods, Tripods, Jibs, 50mm HDSLRs Canon5D mark3, 5D mark2, 7D,6D, 70D and Most importantly all our lenses are designed to shoot at low light evnironment! What we always tell our couples is to watch our samples and see if you like the quality of imagery as well as the stories told.

Are you strict with the duration of the final video?

No, they are all only approximate durations. The duration that we put on our packages is the minimum that we will give you. If we edited your piece a little longer because the story requires it to be, then so be it. What matters the most is whether we have told the story well or not.

You are more expensive in comparison to many other videographers. Why?

It’s simply a different approach. We offer a boutique video production as opposed to a wedding video ‘factory’ that performs hundreds of weddings per year. We are pleased to serve a market that values a personal and unique wedding video for their wedding – handcrafted from their own story, not formed by template. Therefore, it is important to value our work by taking into account the time, skills and effort that we put in to each of our projects. Our clients’ satisfaction with the finished product has proven that our service is simply worth everything that they have invested in us. We just don’t upload trailers like other companies , We upload the whole video so that everyone can judge our work.

What will I actually get, film-wise, once Cinewedding By Nabhan Zaman has completed my wedding project?

You’ll receive a once in a lifetime experience that can be relived over and over again! Depending on the package you will get the Videos. Some of our package offers the Cinematography video , which is basically the videos you see on our pages and websites. But if you think it’s too short , you can choose our other packages which offers both the cinematography and full video.

Can I use my own music?

Of course you can. However, we kindly ask you to give us freedom in choosing the final music. The reason being that we don’t want a set of music to dictate the flow of the story that we want to tell. On the positive side, it will certainly make things easier when you give us a list of songs that you like and we’ll use it as our starting point of selections.

Is my cinematographer going to be friendly to my guests and me?

There is only one way to find out!

Do you accept pencil bookings?

So long as the pencil is worth a 25% deposit payment! Due to the nature of our business, this deposit is required to book the date – otherwise, the date is still single and searching for its soulmate…

What makes you different from other video companies?

That’s a tough one. We are who we are. It’s very hard for us to praise ourselves, and we don’t know what makes other companies tick, so ummm….we’ll have to pass on that one. But hey you can be the judge yourself , browse our videos and compare them with others.

What are the arrangements to fly you overseas to do our wedding?

We always love telling stories from different parts of the world! However, we don’t have wings or time machines at our disposal, so there would naturally be extra charges involved regarding travel costs, accommodation and an out-of-town fee on top of our standard package prices. If you’re still with us, please get in touch to arrange a customized quote to fly us out to your side of the world.

Do you require meals at the wedding day?

Yes, we do. We may have 4 or 5 crew on the day depending on whether you book a same day edit or just the normal package.

Do you have preferences with the photographers you work with?

We do know some great photographers that we wouldn’t mind sharing another fun day of shooting with. However, we also love getting to know new ones! If there were a preference though, we would rather work with those photographers who don’t “pose” too much. As capture-artists, it makes our job so much easier when things ‘just happen’.

Why does it take so long for the video to finish its editing process?

We aim to have each film to our clients by their 10th wedding anniversary….just kidding! Seriously though, we are not offering a ‘cookie-cutter’ mass-produced video package, so the process is very time-consuming. It’s for all the right reasons though – we want to make sure that we’re delivering the best we can to our couples. Please rest assured it will be well worth the wait.

How much do you charge for Cinematography outside of Dhaka ?

We charge an extra fee of 10,000tk/Day with the package for transport , food and accommodation. But the amount can change depending on the location.

Do you need transport from us ?

Don’t worry we won’t give you so much pain. We have our own transport, But yes we do need transport from you if there is any political situation like Hartals or if there is any situation which might make it risky for us to travel.

Can i change the songs or scenes after the final edit is received ?

We can change few scenes that you may not like , but however we won’t be able to change the songs once the final edit is done. Our editing totally depends on the song so if we change the song , we will have to re-edit again. That’s why we encourage you to choose the songs and give us a huge list which will help us to choose the right song for the right moment.

Do we have to meet you before the Wedding day ?

We recommend you to meet us before the wedding , that way you will get to know us better. We would love to know about your weddings and how you’re planning it. It makes our job much easier.
