PRE-WEDDING TASKS

1. RESERVE YOUR WEDDING DATE
Once you’ve made the decision to have Hakim Sons Films document your most special wedding memories, the first thing to do is block your wedding date! This is easily done by providing a retainer and ensures your wedding is on our calendar.

2. SELECT A COMMISSIONING
We offer multiple offerings, all of which are customizable for your wedding celebrations. Selecting a package can be done at the same time you block your wedding date. If you need more time to identify which offering is best for your wedding, we’ll be here to help you out!

3. SEND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS
Your engagement photos will be used to share with our team, so they can start getting to know you and to celebrate your big day via Hakim Sons Films’ social media. Please send images to photos@hakimsonsfilms.com.

4. COMPLETE WEDDING INFORMATION QUESTIONNAIRE
You will receive a Wedding Questionnaire via email 10 weeks prior to your wedding day. The questionnaire helps our team become familiar with your wedding day, the people and events that will make it special and give us information that will be helpful when editing your film. Please take the time to complete the questionnaire and send it back to us within 2 weeks.

5. SCHEDULE A TIME TO MEET
We want to have an opportunity to sit down with the soon-to-be newlyweds. In this meeting, we will review your Wedding Questionnaire and wedding itinerary as well as give you the opportunity to meet your lead filmmaker. You will receive an email requesting your availability 4-6 weeks before the wedding date. Please respond and let us know when we can look forward to seeing you!

6. MAKE FINAL PAYMENT
Final payments are due 2 weeks prior to the wedding day. You will receive an email reminder for the final balance and can complete the process online.

7. EMAIL OR CALL ABOUT LAST MINUTE UPDATES
Just in case there are any major changes or additions to your wedding itinerary, please email or call to update us about them. We don’t want to miss out on anything during the big day!

 

WEDDING DAY TASKS

1. ENJOY!
You’ve worked so hard for this day, so enjoy every moment! They’re not kidding when they tell you it goes by so fast, but rest assured we’re capturing all the wonderful moments, so you’ll have them forever.

 

POST-WEDDING TASKS

1. SEND WEDDING IMAGES
Once you’ve received your wedding images from the photographer, please choose 6 to 8 of your favorite (both vertical and horizontal), and send them to photos@hakimsonsfilms.com. We’ll be using these images to complete your custom DVD artwork and menu design. You will also receive a reminder about this via email.

2. PROOF FILM
Once our team has completed editing your wedding film, we’ll email you to set up a time to come into the studio to proof the film. This is your opportunity to watch the film in its entirety and tell us what you think.

3. DELIVERY
After the proofing session, we will make the DVDs and get them ready for delivery. Please let us know if you would like to pick your package up from us or have it mailed to you.
