Where are you located? Do you travel?
Jakfoto is based in Orange County, California, but we love the fact that we get to work all over the world. We’re happy to pack our bags (and our passports) for your big day!
What type of films do you make?
We believe that wedding films should be emotional, honest, and fun to watch! We use quality HD footage, professional audio, and narrative editing to create artfully edited films that tell your story, with your personality. Our packages are based on the length of your film:
- 4-6 minute Highlights
- 8-10 minute Short Film
- 12-20 minute Feature

We also love creating films that tell your Love Story! Through interviews and [polite, even stealthy] filming of you and your sweetheart on a favorite date, your personal love story becomes your favorite romance film. Share it with friends and family, save it to share with each other or your kids years down the road… What better way to commemorate an engagement or anniversary?
What else is included?
In addition to your fully edited edited wedding film, your custom DVDs include a basic edit of the entire wedding ceremony and toasts, so you won’t miss a minute. You get three DVDs (additional copies are $40 each), plus your edited film will be hosted online so that you can easily share the link with family and friends.
How many cameras will be there?
We provide two talented cinematographers to capture your day (3 for a Feature). Kiera always leads the shooting and edits the feature films, so she is connected to every minute of the process! Josh usually joins her in shooting, plus we work with a number of tried and trusted filmmakers so that we can provide additional cinematographers when needed.
Do you charge per hour?
We think it’s important to capture your day from beginning to end. Every wedding film package includes two-camera coverage from the first event of your day (usually the bride and groom getting ready) until the last event of the reception, up to 12 hours. If you know beforehand that your schedule will run longer, talk to us about customizing a package. If the wedding runs late and you decide on that day to have us stay longer, overtime will be billed at $500 per hour.
What are your rates?
Our wedding video packages start at $3000, with plenty of room to customize. Love Story videos are just $450 if booked with a wedding package! Please contact us for details.
Can I get all the footage from my wedding day?
As an add-on to your wedding film package, we are happy to offer your raw footage on DVD or hard drive for just $600. This option is available for one year after your wedding date. Here’s an email we got from one of our brides, the day she received her raw footage DVDs:
“Our wedding video was already one of the best investments we ever made, but seeing the raw footage from the day was equally incredible. There are so many funny, sweet and memorable moments captured and even the raw footage is 100 times better than any amateur video we could have tried to capture. I know we will be watching these discs for years to come.” – Victoria
