“…From the friendly service, fair price, & amazing video, Shoeless Works LLC was the perfect match for what we wanted…” – Krystle & Jon
We are actually right in the middle of a HUGE change for our business. We are upgrading our cameras and equipment this fall in order to be able to offer and shoot in 4k for 2016! This an incredible jump in quality as 4k has twice the resolution as 1080p HD and more than 5 times the quality of standard DVDs!
With that being said, we are going to try and keep our packages competitive against even the low quality DVD pricing of our competitors.
We do have three main packages in order to start you off but we can tweak and custom build a package that suits you if needed!
Ceremony only or Highlights only package – Pricing starts under $1495
This package is for couples who are only looking for the basics in coverage for their wedding day. The ceremony and the main events of the reception. Setup begins about an hour before the wedding and lasts 4 or 5 hours in order to get the main events only. There are two options for this package usually: A highlight video ONLY. Without interviews, raw footage, or bonus footages etc. The finished product is an online highlight video fully edited to the music of your choice.
Or the finished product is just the ceremony and the first few events of the reception without any highlights, interviews, bonus features etc. The ceremony is filmed with two cameras and a wireless mic. The reception is filmed with one camera. All footage is shot and edited into 1080P format & the end result is a USB drive with the entire edited ceremony & reception.
This package isn’t very popular as our next few packages offer more coverage for a small price increase.
The “FULL COVERAGE” Package – Pricing starts under $1995!
This package is for couples who are only looking for everything on a budget! Coverage begins a few hours before the ceremony, gathering bits & pieces of the getting ready & emotions leading up to the main event. The ceremony itself includes three HD cameras, an audio device & a wireless device with multiple microphones for clear vocal audio for the entire ceremony. One of the cameras is set specifically to capture the groom’s face when the bride walks in the door.
The entire reception is then filmed using one camera (that works well in most low lighting situations without obnoxious lights).
For the end result you will receive an HD digital copy on a USB drive that will include multiple highlight videos, bride & groom interviews, the ceremony, the reception, & a wedding highlight video. This package does not include any bonus features (or raw footage) however we can add them for an extra fee.
Coverage usually starts from a few hours before the ceremony & goes through the end of the reception (we usually say 8 hours but aren’t real sticklers). Pricing for this package can vary based on any deals we are running & we do offer discounts for off-season or weekday weddings.
This package is shot with one videographer in order to keep your pricing down!
The “Cinematic” Package – Pricing starts under $2995!
This package is for couples who are not only looking for everything but looking for it to be in a cinematic quality style! We use different cameras that offer a shallow depth of field style and different frame rate that gives it that “movie style” (or cinematic) look.
The coverage is essentially the same as the last package, one videographer all day, three cameras for the ceremony, wireless mic, one camera for the reception, multiple highlight videos, interviews all compiled on a USB.
This package is shot with two videographers who work together throughout the day in order to keep your pricing down while still capturing every moment!
We also are happy to offer a 4k upgrade for the Cinematic package for 2016 as well! Not only do you add the added quality of the Ultra High Definition for your ENTIRE wedding day, we also throw in a 1TB harddrive for your completed & fully edited product as well as ALL of your raw footages from the entire day!! This upgrade is only $995+tax and only available with our cinematic package as an upgrade.
Contact us today for an actual pricing quote for your date!
We love to meet our with our potential clients prior to booking in order to show them examples of each of these packages. From there we can design a package that meets your videography needs & budget!
Wedding Photography! (Yes, we do that too)
Our photography pricing starts at $1995+tax, inquire for more details and how you can save by combining packages or how you can custom design your own coverage!
“The video was more than either of us could have imagined & beyond perfect. I don’t know how he created that video & so quickly…” Meagan & Erik
One of the best ways to get a feel for our quality of work & our personalities is with an engagement session. Even if you only want to work with us for video, engagement sessions can really be a bonding experience. You will get to see how we work, what quality of work we provide & even more importantly, for us to get to know each other. As photography goes, we will use the same opportunity to find out poses that best flatter you as well. We really work hard to build a relationship & trust with our clients & an engagement shoot is a perfect way to establish this relationship.
On that same note, we have also shot a number of actual engagements as they happen as well. Grooms to be, contact us now if you are thinking about proposing! Capturing this on video can be tricky but it’s an AMAZING way to document this once in a lifetime moment.
We offer engagement photoshoots for just $249+tax or this can be built into your wedding package or even act as a deposit.
Proposal videos start at $499+tax & they will be incorporated into your full wedding video as well.
If you looking for Shoeless Works for photography our prices start at $2399+tax which include one photographer for up to 10 hours, an engagement or bridal session & the finished product is all of your pictures in digital form & one complete & edited photo-book. Extra photographers can be added for $599 per shooter for up to 6 hours.
“Great people to work with & knew exactly what I wanted.” – Samantha & Michael
Shoeless Works LLC is comprised of me, Joe Jackson my talented second shooters Jesse, Jessica & David. We are always trying to learn different ways to improve our abilities & pride ourselves on keeping our prices competitive.
Over the past 10+ years I’ve learned a lot about film & weddings & I am always surprised at how much fun I actually have at each wedding or event I am privileged to shoot.
Not all weddings or shoots are the same & we know we aren’t necessarily the right videographer/photographer for everyone. That is okay. We are truly blessed with the clients that have chosen us & we know we will be continually blessed by our future clients 🙂 Please contact us for prices but definitely schedule a free consultation so we can meet too!

Turnaround time: We often boast of our quick turnaround to everyone. Recently we’ve been able to have our finished products waiting for our couples as soon as they arrived back from their honeymoon! We normally say 7-14 days for a finished product!
Deposits: We ask for a 10% non-refundable deposit to hold your date. The rest will be due on the day of your wedding.
Traveling: We will travel up to 100 miles with no extra charge. “Day trips” add an additional gas fee but we drive a Civic so even 2 tanks of gas can be well under $100. If an overnight stay is required we definitely want to work with you as a lot of times destination weddings are a joy for us & we will definitely work with you here.
Visual Quality: Every camera we own shoots in a minimum of 720P & we shoot everything in either 720p60 (for slow motion visuals) or 1080p24 for the cinematic look while maintaining the highest quality. We are aiming to shoot with multiple cameras in 4k very soon to take the next step in quality & leave DVDs dead in the water.
How we interact: We try our hardest to be as incognito as possible while we work. We do all of our planning in advance so there won’t be much to do once we arrive other than setup & shoot. We dress artistic & professional, yet comfortable. We will do our best to stay to the sides & back so as not to be a distraction or hinderance to anyone else working.
Extras/Add-ons: We offer a video booth for best wishes or a slow motion video booth for extra excitement at the reception for $299+tax on top of any package. We also can provide ALL raw footages in their original full quality forms for $99+tax if the client provides a blank or format-able external harddrive of 250GB or larger. Clients can also choose to have original, lower quality, SD versions of their wedding made onto DVDs too but we highly recommend digital copy as they can be copied for free in their highest quality with a simple click of a button.
Catholic/Greek Ceremonies: There can be a small fee added to these ceremonies but typically we don’t have any issues here as long as we are able to discuss everything in advance.
Alternative/Multicultural Weddings: Different is fantastic! We’ve shot many different styles of weddings, ethnicities, & cultures before & we are always up for a new style. Please contact us & we can talk about your wedding/event in more detail to give you a quote.
