How It Works

Here's a walk through of what it looks like to work with us.

Don't like to read? Watch this!

Every couple is different, no two wedding films we’ve created are ever alike, and the results are always beautiful. 

We start with a free in-person, FaceTime, or phone consultation where we'll have some questions for you guys.  We'll talk details about the logistics fro the event, what you want coverage of, but we're also going to ask you things like:

  • what’s your favorite way to unwind?
  • what’s your ideal getaway weekend?
  • what’s your favorite books or movies?

We'll see if we're a good fit for one another and if it's a go, we'll set up your package and officially reserve your date with a 50% nonrefundable deposit and signed agreement. 


"The advice I saw when trying to decide to book a videographer is absolutely true- Shelby was the one vendor I didn't know I needed/almost didn't book, but ended up being the best choice I made during the entire wedding planning process. We definitely would have regretted not having her there! She worked with us on package and price, was professional at the wedding, had great ideas, and WOW! Did she deliver. I couldn't believe how fast she got our video back to us, and even included bonus clips! It was amazing to watch the video during our honeymoon to relive the wedding from our guest's eyes- she captured every key moment and then some. She is also an awesome person! I would HIGHLY recommend Nest Productions!!!"  - Sara
 
 
 

Leading Up To The Wedding

We believe couples deserve the right to HAVE FUN while planning a wedding. 

For your wedding video we need the two of you to think of 5-10 of your faaaaavorite songs ranging from lovey-dovey, instrumental, to your favorite Flo Rida song you want in your reception dance highlights.  If you get stuck, think about your playlist you gave your DJ to give you some inspiration!


"Shelby is amazing!! We decided last minute to add a videographer, and she was so accommodating to our wants and needs. She is super easy to get along with, and the moment she started videoing on our wedding day, I knew she was going to capture everything so well. She has a wonderful artistic touch and did a great job with our highlight video, so you can feel confident in trusting her to make your memories last a lifetime."       - Caitlin
 
 
 

Your Wedding Day!

We will:

  • offer the no-hostage-guarantee; we will not hold you for ransom for ridiculous amounts of time away from your family and friends. 
  • remind you that you're human; you need to take care of yourself first, and, most importantly, that you should actually ENJOY your wedding! We want you to BE the beautiful couple that you are.
  •  capture you GENUINELY having the time of your life at your wedding, not just posing like you are.

"Shelby and her team do amazing videography work! I could not believe how well she was able to capture all the important moments of my wedding (and then some) without my even noticing. I was so surprised once I saw all of the footage she had and how she somehow was able to skillfully capture these candid memories. Something that is so priceless! I am so happy that I had Shelby do my videography. I studied video production as part of my degree and understand the time and devotion it takes to make good video (and the amount of shots you have to go through and edit). Having this as my background I would not have settled for an average videographer. Shelby exceeded my expectations! Not only does she do great filming and editing but she is very easy to work with and strives to tailor her work to your imagination and capture those moments that are most important to you." - Laura
 
 
 

Post Wedding

Congratulations! You did it!  Hopefully you've disappeared someplace tropical where there are no in-laws within a 500 mile radius. Well done.

Back in Charleston, we’ll start the bulk of my work in post production. Sheby will start staring at her trusty little MacBook Pro for around 30-40 hours to bring your wedding day back to life. She'll be editing color balances, piecing audio overlays together, and making you both look tanner and about 15 pounds lighter (just kidding! We wish! Your honeymoon will take care of that. The tan, not the pounds..it's time to EAT!)   

It’s a labor of love, but it’s where the real creativity is. We take hours of footage and condense it into your all-star, everything-you-need-to-relive-that-amazing-day feature film set to music in line with your taste.

Turnaround can be UP to sixteen weeks (usually MUCH sooner!), especially during peak season times. Patience young grasshoppa!


"I cannot say how wonderful it was having Nest Productions filming our wedding day! From start to finish they were so organized, easy to plan with, completely understood our ideas and what we were looking for in our style. Filmed, edited and delivered our video in a timeframe they said they would, and the highlight film was everything we could've hoped for! We felt so comfortable asking Shelby questions in our consultation, she's really sweet and really listened to what we wanted, which was really important to me. I would highly recommend Nest Productions for anyone's video needs! If I could give Nest Productions a 10 star rating I would!"    -Melissa
 
 
 

Then. It Happens.

The day you’ve been looking forward to for WEEKS.

 It’s like any other morning, you wake up, turn on your Keurig, step outside to grab the paper and OH MY GOSH THERE’S A BIG BOX ON YOUR WELCOME MAT FOR YOU AND IT’S NOT FROM AMAZON PRIME AND IT’S NOT DUCK DECOYS!  You open it up to find—whaaaat?? You find popcorn…movie candy…MOVIE SNACKS?! Tickets to see your OWN WEDDING MOVIE PREMIERE?!?! 

That’s right. You get your own personal Movie Premiere Party Kit. Whether you want an intimate celebration from the comfort of your couch over some Chinese take out and a bottle of merlot, or make it an all out event with your family and friends, we believe when your wedding videos are finished, it's time to celebrate (We know we will be!)

Your videos arrive (in the form of USB Flash Drives and/or DVDs + Links to HD Uploads for sharing with your friends and family), complete with popcorn, movie snacks, two memento movie tickets…Because who doesn’t like a movie night?!

Here's two real couple's examples of their final product they received from their weddings:

"Nest Productions was a joy to work with -- the video that the team provided was so worth the money we paid. It was so well put together and truly encapsulated the day, with highlights from special moments with family to fun times on the dance floor. She even provided footage from our toasts which we will forever cherish. Thank you Nest Productions for providing such a wonderful keepsake from the most special day of our lives!"         -Tori
