Just apply a LUT and the footage will look perfect! That is what a lot of filmmakers think when it comes to getting great colors in your films. But the truth of the matter is that you REALLY need to know what you are doing, in order to get the right colors in your films. When you think of great color, if you are a wedding videographer, one of the names that always comes to mind is White in Revery. Calen is a bit of a coloring genius, and we really wanted to have him on to talk about getting the right color in camera, so that you can apply a LUT and get great colors.

So we sit down with Calen Rhome, and Levi Tijerina, from White in Revery, to discuss this. Also, they make a HUGE announcement in the podcast talking about a BRAND NEW endeavor that is going to help out so many wedding film makers. We break down some color science, things you should be looking for on a wedding day, tips and tricks to get great color every time, and so much more. We can not wait to share this episode of the How To Film Weddings Podcast!

01:02:15

Building Packages That Sell Do you feel like you are constantly leaving money on the table, or missing out on bookings? In today’s episode, Nick and John break down the different types of package options you can offer. Do you want to offer packages? A la carte? A hybrid of the two? What is the best of you in your business? Which ones of these options fits better for your clientele? We have been having a lot of mentor sessions lately, and are seeing so many things that could be better in the packages of the business owners we are talking with. The psychology behind what you are charging, how you lay out your packages, and what you offer in them really makes a big difference on whether or not you will be booking that couple. In this episode, we will walk you through the 3 types of package options you can offer, and why each of them is good, and potentially bad for your business.

064: Attracting the Right Clients with Becca Neblock || How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:06:16

Here’s the thing, weddings are personal. The people getting married, they are people. No two couples are the same. More and more, couples are choosing their wedding videographer based on personality, branding, and being able to relate to them.

So how do we become more unique? How do we attract the right people for our brand? You have to know who you are. Let’s say that again, you have to know who you are. What do you stand for? Why do you shoot weddings? What makes you keep shooting weddings? How can you infuse that into your branding? Into your personality?

When John met Becca Neblock at 2019’s Venture Workshop, he could tell she didn’t care what anyone else thought. He could tell she knew who she was, and what she stood for. Fast forward a half a year later, and we are having her on the podcast to talk just about that. How she knows who she is, and stands for what matters most to her. Nick met Becca at the first Venture, has done styled shoots with her, and has been impressed.

This podcast is full of info about your brand, but we also dive into feminism. We talk to Becca about what that means to her, and how people can be more aware of things they do at weddings to degrade women. We love bringing light to this topic, and are very excited for you to hear the conversation.

Becca holds nothing back on her website, and her IG account be sure to check her out.

062: Raise Your Prices with John & Nick II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:08:01

How much should you charge? When should you raise your prices? Most of us have just plucked a number out of thin air, and say “that is what I am going to charge! That is how much I am worth!” But to be honest, there really is no rhyme or reason behind why you are charging that much. So how do you know how much to charge? Nick and John break down exactly what they’ve done in the past decade to know their worth, price themselves competitively, as well as continually RAISE THEIR PRICES. It isn’t science, but there definitely is a formula when it comes to knowing what to charge, and when you are ready to raise those prices. So many people post about this in our Facebook Group, so we thought we’d spend an hour tackling the subject. This episode will help you to know exactly where you are in your market. Grab those ear buds, and pull up a seat for this week’s episode of the How To Film Weddings Podcast!

How in the world has it already been a year of the How To Film Weddings Podcast? Time sure does fly when you are having fun. Nick and John thought it would be fun to have a round table discussion with some of their favorites as a special 1 year episode. So we brought in Matt Johnson, and Eric Floberg. To top it off, we had Phil Danger host the conversation. Nick, John, Matt, and Eric basically cut up for an hour, talk about some behind the scenes of the podcast, answer some of Phil’s questions, and talk about why in the world we decided to do this thing in the first place!

060: Photographers and videographers can get along with Caroline Tran II How To Film Weddings Podcast
58:18

Wedding Photographers vs Wedding Videographers. We constantly see in different groups, one of these groups griping about the others. Can’t we all just get along? Nick and John have a treat for the How To Film Weddings listeners today. We have LA based wedding and portrait photographer Caroline Tran (yes, she’s #famous) on the show.

We tackle the questions all around videographers working well with photographers. What is the best way to get a referral from a photographer? What is the best way to drive a photographer insane on the wedding day?

We break down so many things regarding working together as a team, and think this episode will really help you see it from another perspective. Our goal is to help elevate the industry, and if we can get video and photo crews working together as teams on the wedding day, we can all have better work.

We also talk about some of Caroline’s educational resources that can help you in your posing, and in your business. Links are below! Put on the headphones, pull up a chair, and get ready for an amazing episode of the How To Film Weddings Podcast

059: Crafting Better Edits with Wedditor II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:08:51

Outsourcing. We get probably 10 emails a week from companies bugging us trying to edit our videos for us. Annoying is a nice way to put it. But here is the problem most of us face. The backlog monster. We get going in our busy season and shoot a ton of weddings, only to realize we have so many to edit. So do we just take forever to edit them ourselves? Do we hire one of these random companies that emails us?

The look and feel of your films is SO PERSONAL to your brand. Especially if you are a boutique video company. So trusting someone to edit your films is a huge risk.

Recently, John heard about a company called Wedditor. They didn’t reach out to us. We reached out to them. We wanted to make that point because they have NEVER cold called, or cold emailed someone. It has all been word of mouth (check mark number 1 in their favor). After chatting a bit with them, he hired them to edit one of his films. From the moment they began to work together, it was completely different than some of these other companies. Their attention to detail, and making him happy was number 1. John shared the news with Nick about Wedditor, and he began having them do his edits as well. We have both been blown away at how close they are getting on the first version of the films.

Fast forward a few months, and we worked out a deal for Wedditor to be one of our show sponsors. This is saying a lot, because we don’t just let anyone sponsor the show. Their team has been nothing short of amazing. Since we started spreading the news about Wedditor, their inbox has been inundated with emails and questions. So we thought it would be best to have them on the show to answer all of the questions about Wedditor, plus provide some knowledge just on the editing front. They edit hundreds of films, and see a lot of the same mistakes over and over again. We answer questions about editing, staying motivated and more. So great to talk to the CEO Michael, and the head of production, Sara, on this episode.

Thanks for keeping the HTFW community strong! Leave us a review, and share this podcast with a friend. Until next time, SEE YA!

058: The Importance of Mentorships II How To Film Weddings Podcast
53:27

Mentorships. You are probably too far along in your business to have one, right? Or you probably think that they are just for beginners? You are older than someone, or have been in business longer than someone, so you’d never reach out to them about mentoring you in an area you just can’t get over the hump with in your business?

Nick and John break down the myths behind mentorships, talk about how they have affected them in their businesses, and go through different ways their businesses have changed because of mentorships.

John was in business for almost 9 years before he even went to a workshop, and breaks down whether or not he wishes he would have sought out any help beforehand. Nick talks about spending a day with PenWeddings, and then doing a multi-week long mentorship with Forestry Films.

Whether you are brand new, or have been doing this for a while, we strongly recommend you listen to this episode. It just may be the push you need to make the changes in your business that take you to the next level!

We are giving away a 1 hour mentorship session FOR FREE. Check out the link for our giveaway here: https://www.howtofilmweddings.com/mentorship

056: Finding Your Passion Through Adversity with Kathryn Majic of BLNK Films II How To Film Weddings
01:03:33

We stumbled upon a crazy video from a company called Blnk Films, and we were blown away. So much so that we had to figure out who was behind the camera on the shoot. Turns out, Kathryn Majic created this film. We posted it in our group, and it went kind of crazy. So many amazing shots, so many amazing moments.

We break down the film, as well as talk with Kathryn about how she has gone from nothing at all, to a brand that is killing it, in 2 short years. So amazing to see what up and coming filmmakers can do, especially so soon in their careers.

051: 1.5 Million Subscribers on YouTube with Sean Cannell of Think Media |How To Film Weddings
01:00:23

Youtube. We talk about it all of the time. Literally we can’t stop talking about it. Why? Because it is SO IMPORTANT to your brand. John has grown his channel from 200 subscribers to over 11,000 in the last 2 years. Nick started his channel last year and has passed 6000 subscribers. But who cares about numbers? Well we do, but only when they mean that you will make more money.

YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine, and it is owned by Google. This is big. When a bride types in “wedding videos that make me cry” or “Wichita Kansas Wedding Videos” wouldn’t you want to be the first one to pop up? Both John and Nick have seen their business make tens of thousands more each year since pushing YouTube.

So today’s guest, is a YouTube rockstar. Sean Cannell is killing it on youtube. Over 1.5 million subscribers across his channels. Yep. We must be a big deal because he agreed to come on and talk to us about all things YouTube. He has over 55 million views of his videos, and is adding over 20,000 subscribers a month. But how? Why does it matter? We thought you’d never ask!

Join Nick and John, as they interview Sean Cannell about his Video Ranking Academy (https://bit.ly/2DJgBDE) and how you can grow your channel. We answer questions all of your questions about growing a YouTube channel as a wedding videographer! Until next time, SEE YA!

050: It is our 50th Episode. With Aaron Tharpe of 31 Films II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:04:30

50 episodes?! How did that happen? It is our 50th episode.

We knew we had to something big. We asked all of our famous friends, but they were all busy, so we settled with Aaron Tharpe (kidding). You may have heard of him or a little company called 31 Films. Yeah, that Aaron Tharpe. We think we are really special for having him on the podcast, because he is pretty much a legend in our industry. Not only is he charging $10,000+ for his wedding films, the films themselves are some of the best in the world. Using light, composition, crazy good gear and lenses, 31 Films crafts some of the best films you will ever see. You probably don’t need any introduction to Aaron, but in case you do, there it was.

Time for us to offer a HUGE thank you to the How To Film Weddings community. We had no idea what would happen when we uploaded our first podcast 50 episodes ago. The community we have seen grow is astonishing, and we pinch ourselves every day asking if this is real life. What kind of came from an accidental podcast recording has turned into the most listened to wedding film making podcast in the world (or at least we think so). We have come such a long way, but this is only the beginning. It wouldn’t be possible without YOUR support, so we just wanted to say thank you!

Thank you for listening in, for subscribing, for joining the Facebook group, for so many things. If we have never met in person, we hope to do so one day. We hope you know that we care about each and every one of you. Thank you for telling others about our show. We could go on and on forever, but just know that we are more than appreciative for you. Until next time, SEE YA!

049: Shooting 100 Weddings A Year wtih Kaye Shaye Films || How To Film Weddings Podcast
49:49

Shooting 100 weddings in 1 year. We will say that one more time. 100 WEDDINGS IN 1 YEAR. Is this even possible? Would you want to even do this to yourself? Well Kaylor of Kaye Shaye Films did that in 2018. Over 100. This isn’t a podcast to tell you that you should shoot 100 weddings in a year. Rather a conversation with Kaylor about all she has been up to, the HARD WORK she has put in to grow her business into a 6 figure company.

We also talk about the video. Yes, that video. If you haven’t seen it, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3Il1A_-vwI. She was featured in a Full Time Filmmaker video which caused quite the uproar on Facebook. Questioning whether a female in the industry can really make good money, and survive in a male dominated world. Well let’s just tell you this, and it is a spoiler alert, females are DOMINATING in the industry. John and Nick are pumped to share this interview with Kaye Shaye Films where we break down just how she shot 100 weddings in a year, what she is up to this year, and some helpful tips on growing a business through good ol’ hard work. We also talk about how she has gone from a few thousand, to right at 20K followers on her Instagram page.

Throw on those ear buds, and get ready for some #deepnuggets as we talk with Kaylor. Be sure to follow along live inside of our Facebook Group with the conversation!

047: Destination Wedding Q&A with Henry Martens II How To Film Weddings Podcast
57:21

John sits down with Henry Martens of The Brothers Martens to ask all of the questions about his upcoming trip to Italy, to film his first International destination wedding. The Brothers Martens travel all around the world shooting weddings, and although John has shot nearly 500 weddings, he hasn’t ever traveled outside of the U.S. to film one.

John and Henry chat about all of the things to be thinking about to travel for a wedding (not just internationally). What to pack, what to leave at home, and everything in between. This podcast is a bit different, because John was really wanting to just ask Henry all of the questions regarding travel. So this one is more of a podcast where you can listen in on the conversation, and hopefully pick up a thing or two about traveling.

We know this one is specific, but we KNOW that it will help you, even if you aren’t planning on traveling in the near future. Listening to the conversation will give you a behind the curtain look at what all we are thinking about for some of these bigger destination packages! We have actually interviewed Henry one time before, and it is a good one!

We also talk about the conference that Henry will be teaching at in October, Vision Quest. It is going to be insane!

We hope you enjoy! Until next time, SEE YA!

046: Crushing YouTube, Creating Viral Videos & More II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:01:42

📍Try out TubeBuddy the best tool to help grow your YouTube account: https://bit.ly/2DRHMfC

Youtube. You know that video platform that is owned by Google? The #2 biggest search engine in the world? Yeah, you need to be killing it on there. The truth is, that are not on Vimeo looking for wedding videographers. Other film makers are on Vimeo. So are you too late to join the YouTube game, or is it too late to take it seriously? Absolutely not. Now is the time to take your YouTube channel to the next level. More people are on YouTube than ever before, and you need to be active on YouTube!

Nick and John have both grown their YouTube channels slow and steady over the past 2 years. In November of 2017 John had under 500 subscribers. At the time of this recording, he has right at 10,000. Nick started his channel less than 18 months ago, and at the time of this recording he has over 5,000 subscribers. But who cares about subscribers if you don’t get any bookings from YouTube? Well, we can promise you it has gotten us several weddings, and a lot of destination and travel weddings as well.

Join us in this podcast as we talk about how Nick has added almost 4000 subscribers since January, how he got a video to go “viral” with a million views, and what it has meant to his business since growing his channel. John and Nick break down what they have been up to on YouTube, and how they are getting real clients from the platform, and how they are continuing to grow their channels each month.

This episode can change your entire business. So take some notes, and really lean in. We recorded an episode early in our podcast talking about how to get found on YouTube where we break it down on how we upload / what we are thinking about, so you might want to check that out here: https://bit.ly/2Ys3FwH

We can’t wait to see you all upping your YouTube Game! Until next time, SEE YA!

045: Finding Your Voice A Little Long Distance II How To Film Weddings Podcast
50:51

🖥 🛒 Visit the How To Film Weddings Website & Shop: https://bit.ly/2X5PoSz

We’ve all seen the “typical” wedding video. The couple loves it, but does it TRULY inspire you as a film maker? Do you feel like you created something that nobody else on the planet could have created? We all get in a rut of just pumping out edits, and getting into a routine with the way we do things.

Let’s queue up our conversation with Josh Helton, of A Little Long Distance. If you haven’t seen their work, they take it to an entirely different level. The edits aren’t perfect, rather they are more raw. They include moments from times that aren’t just the wedding day. Josh and his wife Jess now live in Ft. Collins Colorado, but just moved from the Nashville area. Their entire vibe is oozing with personality, and it is just so relatable, that they are charging nearly $10,000 for some of their films. He isn’t doing flashy gimbal shots, or crazy camera tricks. At the core, it is just really good content. It is hard to explain what he is doing, and we think that is why so many of us are looking to their films to inspire us with our own. But he takes his films to such a personal level that they sometimes are almost painful to watch. Because it is just that intimate. Don’t take our word for it, check his website out here: http://bit.ly/2Z4rjMP

The point of today’s episode isn’t to get you to shoot like Josh, rather to shoot like YOU. What does that look like? We don’t expect you to know it the first time you shoot a wedding. But we want you to challenge yourself to push to another level with your couples. To push to another level with your edits. Get out of your own box, and think to yourself “what would I make if I had no boundaries.” Work on that. We hope you enjoy today’s episode as much as we recording it!

Also, a huge thank you to our amazing community. If you aren’t part of the How To Film Weddings Facebook group, check it out here https://bit.ly/2DPCelB. It is a great place to get connected with other film makers, and to grow as artists and business people.

01:13:53

See all of the details from The Wedding Film Retreat Here https://bit.ly/2L566iH

We have been waiting to have these two on the How To Film Weddings Podcast for some time, and are SO EXCITED to bring you Rick and Sarah Pendergraft of PenWeddings. Widely acclaimed as the best wedding story tellers on the planet, these two literally travel the globe filming extravagant weddings with beautiful stories. When you watch a PenWeddings video, you know it is them because of their careful attention to detail, and their unmatched story telling ability. So Nick and John sit down to talk to these two about how they do just that, capture riveting stories. They have amassed nearly 50,000 youtube subscribers and have had several videos go VIRAL on youtube with well over a million views (and one with nearly 9,000,000)! They didn’t do this by accident, they did it by telling stories that connect with people.

We ask them their process of getting to know the couples before the wedding, deciding what stories to tell, coming into the wedding day with a gameplay, and so much more. You might want to listen through this one a couple of times, because it is packed full with great info. Not to mention, Sarah and Rick are fellow Tulsans (shout out to Oklahoma) and have known John for years.

We can’t leave without mentioning that we also talked about the Wedding Film Retreat. This getaway / retreat / conference is happening next January in Puerto Vallarta. A 5 day, all-inclusive resort style retreat where tons of amazing speakers are coming in to drop knowledge. Speakers in 2020 include Matt Johnson, Henry Martens, Jonathan and Kaye, and the Pendergrafts. What a ridiculous lineup for an incredible time to grow as a professional. Check out their retreat here https://bit.ly/2L566iH to grab one of the final spots!

041: Maximize Your Profits with Jonathan & Kaye II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:06:41

🖥 🛒 Visit the How To Film Weddings Website & Shop to purchase the BRAND NEW Consultation Guide: https://bit.ly/2X5PoSz

We have all been there before. We finally get a meeting set up with a potential couple, and we really don't know what we should do to make the biggest impact. How can we make more money, and not come across as a sleazy salesman? How can we get to a point in our industry where we are respected enough to charge larger amounts?

John and Nick sit down with Jonathan and Kaye (http://bit.ly/2YhKYIS), a husband and wife team out of Atlanta, Georgia that focuses on LUXURY weddings. What does that mean? Like the really big budget ones where they are dropping huge sums of money on their weddings. But did they start out in this position? Or did they have to work their way up to this spot?

We go deep with these two on how they are maximizing profits, building a brand that is synonymous with high-end luxury, and exactly what they are doing to continue to stay relevant in their market. This one is so full of information, you might want to listen to it twice!

Also, Jonathan and Kaye are teaching out at the Wedding Film Retreat, grab all the details for that event here: http://bit.ly/2JjjpZk

039: Lean Into What Makes You Different w/ Eric Floberg II How To Film Weddings Podcast
57:26

🍯📖 Save $200 & Get a Free Week Trial of Honeybook: https://bit.ly/31N9pQF

What makes you different? Do you hate that you can't be like everyone else? Are you constantly comparing your work to someone else's thinking you will never get there? We do this all of the time. We are our worst critic, and we usually try to hide the quirks that make us different than everyone else.

When John met Eric Floberg at Venture Workshop, it was love at first sight. Not really, he was actually kind of like "who the heck is this guy?" Eric was completely okay with just being himself, quirks and all. This is what makes him so easy to relate with. Maybe it is why his YouTube channel is blowing up with over 34,000 subs at the time of this recording (https://bit.ly/2X3B15u), or why his Instagram has over 25,000 followers (https://bit.ly/2Mp4CRb).

John sits down with Eric to talk about how numbers on social media don't really fulfill you. Being vanilla in your business, or just trying to fit in, isn't fulfilling either. So what do you do? You lean in to what makes you different.

We also talk about how Eric booked an insane Yosemite destination wedding, and how it has made him over $40,000 since he has shot it. Buckle up friends, you are going to enjoy this one!

037: How To Crush Your Facebook and Instagram Ads with Max Sadik
01:00:36

🖥 🛒 Visit the How To Film Weddings Website & Shop: https://bit.ly/2X5PoSz

Facebook ads don't work for me. Marketing on social media is a waste of money. Most all of us have said this from time to time. But what if we were just doing it wrong? What if there was a way to make more money, and find your ideal clients by using the tools created in Instagram and Facebook? We stumbled upon Max Sadik a few months back, and he is literally crushing it when it comes to Facebook and Instagram Ads. Not only is he a wedding photographer, he has an incredible Facebook Group (http://bit.ly/2Wji3SV) where he gives away a TON of free content on how to grow your business using these tools. Not to mention he is Facebook Certified for their ad platform. Which means the dude went and took classes on these things. Pretty much the Yoda of social media marketing for wedding professionals. Not to mention, the dude has an incredible beard and haircut. Buckle up, because this week might take you for a ride!

SEE YA!

034: Never Over Draft Your Bank Account Again
54:52

We have all been there. We wake up, open up our banking app, and see a negative balance. We frantically try to figure out what we can sell, what isn't bolted down at our house, and we wonder why we ever got into business for ourselves in the first place. It sucks. Straight up can drive someone to a state of depression if you aren't careful.

So what do we do to make sure this never happens again? Earn more? Spend Less? A lot of us creatives think we can out earn our stupidity when it comes to handling our money. You can have a high six-figure business, and still over draft your account if you aren't paying attention (trust us, John did this in 2017). We are all human, we all deal with this, so we figured we'd sit down and talk through what we both do in order to make sure this doesn't happen.

Nick gets a little vulnerable and asks John to go through his process of how he makes sure he doesn't over draft, and what systems he put in place to make sure he is solid, especially in the dry months, or the off season. This episode will give you so much PEACE if you follow what we are teaching. The truth of the matter is you HAVE to pay attention to this stuff or you won't be in business for long.

So pour yourself a cup of Joe, throw in those earbuds, and listen to John and Nick as they walk through EXACTLY what they do to make sure they don't overdraft their accounts.

033: Live Q&A From Venture Workshop in Denver, CO
01:32:29

Hold up, wait a minute. Did that just happen? We are still pinching ourselves to make sure this really happened. John was able to sit down with ALL of the speakers from Venture Workshop (https://bit.ly/2VEjdwV) for a LIVE Q&A in front of all of the attendees. We took questions from our Facebook Group (https://bit.ly/2DPCelB), our Instagram page (http://bit.ly/2z2NuIA), and we took questions from the live studio audience.

We had fun, we answered some tough questions, and we all teared up a little bit to a few of the answers. The thing that we took away so much from this week is the community aspect. WOW. What a community of wedding film makers, and we were blown away at how they treated us. A huge thank you to everyone who attended, and for the people who put on Venture Workshop.

The lineup included Jay Worsley, Jordan Bunch, Seth Dunlap, David Reynosa, Calen Rhome, Matt Johnson, Scott McKenna, and Kristine Rhome. What in the literal heck. What a lineup. Check links below to follow everyone!

032: Live Q&A 002 II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:04:52

We are pumped to release this brand new episode of the How To Film Weddings Podcast! This week is a recording from our LIVE Facebook Q&A we had in April. John and Nick sat down to answer any and every question that was thrown our way.

We love our Facebook community, and are amazed at how fast it has grown. We are now able to do things like this, where YOU the listener can help us create content that is not only timely, but relatable to what you are actually going through.

We promise that one day we will figure out how to make sure both of us are recording good audio (Nick accidentally didn’t record into his good mic), and that we get the Facebook lives working properly (John had to restart it twice, dropped his phone). Even though it isn’t perfect, we think the content is more than worth it. Our apologies this week as the audio is a bit rough on Nick’s end, but hey, you didn’t pay for this anyway!

If you’re interested in joining our Facebook group, the link is below. We’d love to have you join! Until next time, SEE YA!

031: Hello Tomorrow Films, Adding Personality To Your Brand
49:25

Not going to lie, we pretty much just laughed and cut up for an hour when we talked to Mac and Erin from Hello Tomorrow Films. They are so full of personality, and it is refreshing. To be honest, they felt like friends. Which is exactly what we talked about with them. How to infuse your personality into your brand. How to make yourself stand out and be attractive to the IDEAL clients for you.

John stumbled about Hello Tomorrow Films last year, and was immediately drawn in. Mainly because of a video they have on their about page (see the video here https://bit.ly/2UWkkTx) where they are in front of the camera. It shows them in all of these amazing locations, with a voice over telling THEIR story. This got us thinking, not too many people show their story too much. Especially on our websites. So we chat for a while about just how they do that. How they fuse their personality into their brand, and how that has affected the price they can charge, along with the couples they book.

It can be hard to put yourself out there. But in 2019, couples want to SEE who they are going to be working with on the wedding day. So we break down some thoughts on how to add personality to your brand, and help grow your business. We also chat about how they work together as a husband and wife team, and how great it is in Canada.

A quick thank you once again for the AMAZING community that has surrounded us at HTFW. Our Facebook group is growing so fast (check it out here https://bit.ly/2DPCelB), and our podcast continues to grow each week. THANK YOU for sharing our videos, and helping us spread the word! Until next time, see ya!

030: Building a 6 Figure Business in 2 Years with Jake Weisler II How To Film Weddings Podcast
45:59

$0 to $100,000 in 2 years. That is what Jake Weisler has done with his business. Is this typical? Not at all. So how did he do it? Spoiler alert, he put in a TON of work, has incredible films, and knows how to build his brand (mainly on Instagram). Don't worry, we talk through exactly what he has done to grow his business in a relatively short amount of time.

We talk about it on the podcast all of the time. The Crockpot method, not the microwave. This might feel like a microwave. But it isn't. He has slowly built this brand by doing more work than the average guy. So the question is, what is holding you back? Hopefully this episode of the How To Film Weddings Podcast will help you push into that 6 figure range with your business.

Also, a quick shoutout to all of you listening and joining in. It means the world with us. We are now reaching thousands of listeners, and are sort of blown away at how receptive this community has been to us. We don't take it lightly that you are giving us your time. So all we can pretty much do is send some good vibes, and digital high fives your way! Until next time, SEE YA!

We might be a little too excited about this week’s episode of The How To Film Weddings Podcast. Joining us today are Jay and Mack, from Jay and Mack Films.

028: How To Get the Best Audio on a Wedding Day with Ryan Cota II How To Film Wedding Podcast
58:02

Let’s be honest, most of us suck when it comes to capturing clean audio on the wedding day. It’s something that videographers really don’t take enough time to really pay attention to when they get started. We just get what we can, and try to work with it. But more and more of us are really diving into how to get the best audio possible for our couples. What microphones should you use? How can you get the best audio for letters or speeches?

We are so excited for a BRAND NEW episode of the How To Film Weddings today with Ryan Cota. Ryan is a professional audio engineer that has produced feature films, music, and more. His day job includes being the audio engineer for the Sacramento Kings. This guy is a “super geek” when it comes to audio. We interview Ryan about everything it takes to capture the best audio on a wedding day.

So grab a coffee, put in those ear buds, and hear from one of the best on an incredible way to up the quality of your wedding films.

027: LIVE from Las Vegas at WPPI With Charlie Hilbrant II How To Film Weddings Podcast
46:36

John was able to go to WPPI in Las Vegas this year, and scope out all of the new things they are doing for the Wedding Videography community. A couple hours after flying in, John sat down with Charlie Hilbrant, of Charlie Hilbrant films to talk. It was a bit weird, as it was the first in-person podcast that we have done before. (Much easier to edit by the way).

We decided to record the podcast right inside the casino, so if you hear some bells and dings, that would be Vegas! Charlie and John talked about WPPI, film making competitions, why it is important to submit your films for review, and the overall state of the wedding industry. It really was a great talk, and we can't wait for you to listen!

As a side note, our community is growing so fast, and we can't thank you enough for joining along! Every week we are hitting new records, and it is because of YOU! Thanks so much for all of the kind words. Let us know below where you are watching from, and what you thought of this episode! Can't wait to hear what you think!

026: Destination Weddings & Sound Design with Henry Martens of The Brothers Martens II How To Film Weddings
01:04:57

Not gonna lie, John fangirled out a little bit when we had Henry Martens from The Brothers Martens on the Podcast. If you haven't followed Henry's work, it is in a league of its own. Not only are the color grade and shot selection top notch, Henry brings in sound design and incredible edits to make true wedding FILMS. This isn't just a recap of the day, it is a film that constantly pushes the limit of creativity.

Henry is based in Texas (yay for another awesome Texan on the pod), but spends most of his time traveling the globe shooting destination weddings. He has filmed in countries all around the world including Bali, Italy, France, Iceland, Nicaragua, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, and the Bahamas. He brings you there with him, in his films.

In today's How to Film Weddings Podcast, Nick and John interview Henry on how he has gotten so many destination weddings, how he approaches the shoots when he is in another country, tips for traveling with gear, and then we talk about his awesome sound design, and how he goes about building such incredible stories.

We could have gone on for another hour, so we guess we will have to have Henry back on the show!

025: Adding a Photographer To Your Team II How To Film Weddings Podcast
55:32

In today's podcast, Nick sits down with John to discuss how John is earning an additional 6 figure income by adding a photographer to his team. Yep, you read that right! You might be thinking to yourself, "I don't want to add photography to my business." That is totally fine. We still think this podcast will be super helpful for you. By adding a photographer, John has created another revenue stream. We break down how he did that, and it just might get you thinking of ways you can add to your business by creating more revenue streams.

We all want to make more money per job, so give this one a listen and see what you think! If we can make more money per wedding, we can accept less work. Which will give us more time to work harder on each project. Give this one a listen for sure!

So excited about this week's How To Film Weddings Podcast with McKenzie Miller. She has been shooting weddings for over 10 years, and has built a brand in NYC that is pushing the limits in quality, and in budgets.

We talk to McKenzie about keeping a timeless look to her films, what she wished she would have known when she was starting out, how she shoots in NYC, and so much more. If you haven't checked out her work, it is incredible. We will link to her website below.

We posted in the group, asking questions from YOU our listener, and we were blown away by all of the questions and comments. Nick and John sat down for right at an hour to answer as many of your questions as possible. We talked about how to grow your business if you are just getting started, our ceremony setups and what cameras we use, tips for making more money and getting into higher end weddings, and SO MANY MORE.

This really was a ton of fun, and we can't wait to do another one. The thing that we are really starting to love about our community is that the overall vibe. Everyone is so helpful to others, newer people are getting advice from veterans, and we are focusing on what matters when growing as an artist, and a business person.

022: What I Learned From Planning My Own Wedding With Leslee Layton II How To Film Weddings Podcast
51:18

Excited to drop a brand new podcast, with someone you may not know quite yet. Nick sits down with Leslee Layton, an Oklahoma based wedding film maker, to chat about all of the things when it came to planning her own wedding. Through the stressful process, she has a lot to talk about that could help you, even if you are already married, or not yet married.

If you are in the wedding filmmaking industry and you are not yet married, you might have a leg up on those who get married before they get into this profession - you'd think so anyway. You probably have ideas for the style and look on the big day. But what would you say if we told you that even wedding professionals have a hard time planning their own wedding?

Leslee Layton of Leslee Layton Films got married in the Spring of 2018 and had been in the industry for almost a decade, yet the whole process was super overwhelming for her! Nick wanted to talk with Leslee about her experience as a bride and what she has learned from that process.

Two initiatives came from Leslee's experience as a bride - "Story First," and "Let's Revel." "Story First" is the direction that Leslee takes all of her couples through when planning out their wedding video. She walks her clients through everything that will help her tell a better story, even down to 'how to write personal vows.'

"Let's Revel" is a new blog launched last month that is aimed at giving real advice from wedding professionals to help engaged couples. Their message of the site is to help couples be real and authentic in their wedding day.

Buckle up, this one is a great one to listen to. We are excited to see what you think! Let us know in the comments below, or share this with someone that needs it!

021: Your Work Isn't the Most Important Thing with Tyler Herrinton II How To Film Weddings Podcast
01:04:36

Your work isn’t the most important thing. Let that sink in for a second. How many people do you know that have AMAZING work, but only get a couple hundred views on their videos? Why is this?

When it comes down to it, a LOT of people focus solely on the creative side of their business, and think everything else will just work out. They think that if they make good enough work, people will come flocking to them. For the most part, unless you hit the jackpot of luck in your business, this isn’t the case.

We get it, there are some businesses that just pop, everyone wants to book them, and they don’t have to focus as much on the business. But if that isn’t you, and you are really wanting to grow a business that will make you MONEY over time, this is the podcast for you.

John sits down with Tyler Herrinton of The Herrintons (see their work here: https://bit.ly/2HdRtHd) to talk about how they run a successful business. He and his wife, Ashley, have been building a solid business for years now. John and Tyler geek out a little about building a brand that will sustain you long term, workflows, taking care of clients, and why your work isn’t the most important thing.

On top of all of Tyler and Ashley’s success, they have a YouTube channel designed to help out other pros (check it our here: https://bit.ly/2tH1Rim). From tech reviews, to behind the scenes tutorials, these guys are pumping out some really amazing content for couples. Their website is full of freebies for wedding film makers, so you might want to check that out too!~

019: Building a Seven Figure Business with Jordan Bunch II How To Film Weddings Podcast
48:55

Hold onto your Cowboy hats, we have another Texan on the Podcast today! Nick and John sit down with the man himself, Jordan Bunch, to catch up and talk about all of the things that he is doing these days.

Entrepreneurship runs through his veins. He is always building a new brand, or working on getting more business. This is the guy that started the Wedding Film Academy Podcast, and has had over 100 episodes of the show. He teaches in conferences all over the place, and has a passion for teaching others how to MAKE MONEY doing what you love. He has made the business side of running a business sexy again (he may even have a t-shirt that says "make business sexy again"). But in all seriousness, this dude is building an empire and it is quite inspiring to watch.

He started a boutique brand, Jordan Bunch Studios, which then grew into the massively profitable Lady Bird Studios shooting hundreds of weddings each year. His team continues to grow, and he is definitely aiming for the 7 figure mark in his business.

He's recently rebranded the Wedding Film Academy into Film Mavericks to reach a broader audience of filmmakers to make a bigger difference. He is focusing on creating photo & video content for businesses.

There is so much more going on with this guy, so grab yourself a cup of coffee, throw on the headphones and give this episode a listen.

Do you ever feel like you are just editing all of the time, you don’t have any fresh ideas, and that your films suck? Yeah, we do that too. You’re not alone. What it really comes down to, is that you have to make sure you don’t get yourself stuck in a rut. You can’t just look at what others are doing, and say “oh, I need to do it that way.” We are so very excited to share with you our How To Film Weddings Podcast, where we sit down with David Reynosa of Forestry Films.

If you have been in the wedding film world for any amount of time at all, you’ve most likely heard of the epic work that is happening at Forestry Films. Today we chat about how David has built such a loyal following, and how he has continually pushed the limit with his creativity by not limiting himself. We talk about how he began shooting weddings, his long history with street magic (yep, you heard it from us!), and his passion for education and entrepreneurship. We may have gotten carried away a bit by goofing off and laughing, so you will have to forgive us a bit.

Such a great episode, and we are so humbled continually by these guests that are joining us for the show. Be sure to like and subscribe, leave a review, and most importantly, share this with someone who needs to hear it!

017: How Story Will Change Your Wedding Films with Patrick Moreau II How To Film Weddings
53:47

Not going to like, I (John) was a wee bit nervous to interview Patrick Moreau, from Muse Storytelling. To me, he is sort of a legend. Not only has the guy done so much for the wedding industry with tutorials, and story telling. But he has filmed some of the most incredible stories that the world has to offer. His company, StillMotion, began over a decade ago, and they literally changed the entire landscape for wedding filmmakers. He, and his crew were so far ahead of the curve, that they rather quickly were contacted by Canon to help them film tutorials for filmmakers. The films were driven by story. His crew was one of the first companies to do this. They opened up this whole new world (cue the Aladdin theme song) for people in our industry. Our eyes were open to the fact that you could literally have no boundaries when telling a story. I would catch myself watching his films and getting lost in the story. It wasn't just Uncle Fred with a camera and a big light. It was a production. A raw story, and it drew you in. You couldn't help but watch from beginning to end.

With their incredible passion for having no boundaries, and putting story first, their company exploded. Someone from the NFL saw one of their films, and hired them do a documentary on the Playoffs, then the Army vs Navy game hired them on a several hundred thousand dollar contract to product a documentary. This led to Patrick and the team winning an Emmy for their work, and SO MANY more opportunities.

After teaching so many courses on story, Patrick and his team created Muse Story Telling, and have broken down the exact science and psychology of telling a story. They taught courses and workshops around the world.

I owe a ton of my success to his work. I was so honored to get an hour of his time, and would love to hear what you think about this episode. A HUGE thank you to Patrick, and the Muse Story Telling team for letting us hear all of the things that are going on in your world.

016: Stop Creating Boring Wedding Films with Matt Koza II How To Film Weddings
56:00

Have you ever watched a wedding film and just thought, "this is boring?" Everything is pretty, but there is just nothing special about it? Do you feel like you are in a rut when it comes to your shooting and editing? This just might be the podcast for you.

Nick and John sit down with Matt Koza, from Matt Koza Cinema (http://bit.ly/2HByhop) to talk about how he creates such visually stunning films. If you haven't had the chance to check out Matt's work, do so today and see exactly what we are talking about. He somehow grabs these super creative, and solid angles of things. His films are anything but boring.

In a time where we are all trying to create work to stand out, this guy is doing exactly that. The way he composes shots, the way he gets the light to hit the subject is truly art. We sit down and talk with Matt about how he is running his business, and how he has become so successful.

Once we dive in, we really get practical on how he shoots different parts of the day. From the bride and groom getting ready, to how he lights things, to the reception speeches (you have to listen to this part), we talk about it all. We can not wait to hear what you think about this episode of the How to Film Weddings Podcast!

015: Gear, Matt's Music List and Beards with Matt Johnson II How To Film Weddings
59:45

We have to admit, the first time that Matt Johnson commented on one of our videos, we freaked out a little bit. The great and powerful Matt Johnson knew who we were, and liked what we were doing. Just goes to show how cool this guy is. Legitimately a friend within 5 minutes of meeting the guy. That's probably why so many people follow him these days.

Being able to sit down and chat with Matt was super helpful, and we hope it is for you too. We walk through so many things, including gear, his Music List, and of course, beards. Matt is a wealth of knowledge for sure. We had a hard time even giving this one a title because we talk about so many things. Advice for newbies, growing a following, and so much more. Why are you still reading this, get to listening!

012: No More 'Where's My Video' Emails II How To Film Weddings
53:53

We've all been there before. In the middle of editing a wedding, only to get an annoying email from a bride who had their wedding 2 or 3 weeks ago. We all know the email "Where's my video? It has been 3 weeks already?!" Instead of working on the wedding you need to be working on, you now have to go and send an email back to the bride telling her that everything is okay, and she will be getting her video soon enough!

We see it in the wedding forums so often. People frustrated at the bride for emailing them. Wait a sec, that is your fault. And we can explain why. What if there was a better way than this? Honestly, if you have gotten this email, you haven't done your job. Yep. Plain and simple, you should have done a better job.

Nick and John walk through EXACTLY what they each do from the time they book a couple for their wedding video, all the way through delivering their product. This back and forth conversation should help you see different approaches on what you could do for your business.
Not only will you be saving time, but you will be building a better rapport with your couples. Because after all, they are your customer. Why wouldn't you make sure to communicate better with them?

52:58

Little did we know that when we reached out to Musicbed that we'd get to chat with their CEO and Founder, Daniel McCarthy. Both Nick and John have used Musicbed for years, and have been blown away with their customer service, quality of product, and overall brand.

We wanted to pick his brain about the brand new memberships program they offer, as well as how he turned his business from an idea, to a company generating millions of dollars with over 50 employees. How do they grow, yet still keep those core values?

We can learn a lot from Musicbed when it comes to customer service, keeping your mission in front of you, providing a ridiculously good product, and building a brand. We were both surprised at how much wisdom Daniel dropped on us during the podcast. Be sure to check out MusicBed, and their amazing membership program by clicking here: https://bit.ly/2qSC97o

010: How To Build a Brand II Ray Roman II How To Film Weddings
01:08:13

When you think about charging the big bucks for weddings, one name comes to mind. Ray Roman. He is the official wedding videographer for the Trump family, celebrities, professional athletes, and so much more. His weddings are insanely epic. He travels the world filming multi-million dollar weddings, and hasn't slowed down in nearly 15 years. Ray's message is simple. Charge what you are worth. Don't give away everything and the kitchen sink for free. Build a BRAND that will allow you to demand the highest prices. If you don't, you will be stuck in the middle for the years to come.

So many of us undercharge for our services, thinking that we have to do so in order to "compete." But the truth of the matter is that if we don't raise the tide, you are hurting your market. We talk to Ray about how he charges tens of thousands of dollars for his weddings. You heard that right, TENS of thousands for his wedding films. It can be done. We also talk to him about the problem with our industry, and how we can all contribute to fix it.

Ray is a pioneer in our industry, and a wealth of knowledge about growing a brand that demands the highest price in your market. We sat down with Ray to talk about where he began, and how he got to where he is today. So many nuggets of info on this podcast, and we can not wait for you to hear from Ray on what he has been up to.

The hour flew by, and we will definitely have to have him on the How To Film Weddings Podcast again. Buckle up, this is a good one!

009: Working With Photographers on the Wedding Day II Peyton Rainey II How To Film Weddings
01:01:36

We've all been there before. Annoyed by the photographer at the wedding. They keep walking in front of your shot, they don't give you enough time with the couple, their flash is going off like crazy. But what if it didn't have to be the video team vs the photo crew? What if we took the time to work together?

John sits down with Peyton Rainey, a wedding photographer that has traveled the world shooting weddings, and talks through what it is like to be a photographer and dealing with us, the videographer. This reverse-role scenario really helped to show what it is a photographer is looking for on the wedding day when she sees a videographer. There's a reason that most videographers get a bad name before they even start. Most of us don't take the time to try to work WITH the photographer. So many amazing nuggets in this podcast that will help your experience with wedding photographers be SO MUCH BETTER.

Peyton has been featured on the cover of magazines, in numerous publications, photographed celebrity weddings, and has traveled to over 30 countries shooting weddings! She has a MASSIVE following on Instagram, and has some of the most amazing, and adventurous photographs of couples. Not only is her style incredible, she is a business-minded wedding pro that has not only grown a huge following online, but continues to grow her profits along the way. If you haven't found her already, be sure to check out what she is doing with the links below!

We also dive into how she grew her Instagram account to 60,000+ followers, how she is getting to travel the world photographing weddings, and many more things. She is KILLING the business game, as well as the Instagram game, so we thought it would be super helpful to interview an actual wedding photographer to talk the nitty gritty of what types of videographers she wants to recommend, and what types she wants to avoid.

Pull up a seat, and dive in, as we hope this episode really helps you look at the way you approach working with wedding photographers differently.

007: Following Your Passion II Kraig Adams II How To Film Weddings
51:39

We have a treat for you this week. We sat down with Kraig Adams, founder of Wedding Film School. If you have followed Kraig for any amount of time, you know one thing, he plays by the beat of his own drum. He isn't following the rules when it comes to what most people think of when running their company. There is something oddly refreshing when chatting with Kraig. He doesn't care what you think. That may rub some people the wrong way, and it might inspire others. But the truth is, he has the stats to back up his way of thinking. Not only has he created 1 channel with over 100,000 followers (Wedding Film School, http://bit.ly/2zOsg0G), his personal YouTube channel (http://bit.ly/2z3Esel ) just passed 100K as well.

We sit down to talk to Kraig about handing off the Wedding Film School brand to another wedding filmmaker, building his own channel, building his YouTube channel, strategy for using affiliate links, and what he is currently doing to make money.

Overall, we talked about one thing, following your passion. He does just that, every day. We hope you enjoy this one, and it helps you to remember why you got into this business in the first place.

006: Drones, Personal Projects & Sound FX II Jay Worsley II How To Film Weddings
58:56

Pull up a chair, put in your ear buds, do whatever you need to hear this podcast. Nick sat down with Jay Worsley of Everly Films (Check them out here http://bit.ly/2yVvCiD). He needs no introduction, but is well known for his incredible edits, visual storytelling, and work with drones. Not to mention he is one of the featured speakers at Venture Workshop (http://bit.ly/2DojRFo), and just released a Drone Master Class (http://bit.ly/2zuxtKB). This dude is legit.

This conversation will challenge you to step up your game, not only with your aerial work, but with sound fx, and personal projects. They talk about the importance of doing passion projects, work that you have complete freedom to create however you want. Jay even goes into meeting with Philip Bloom, and the advice he gave him that has completely changed the way he does his work.

This podcast will challenge you to search within, and stop just going through the motions on your films.

005: LoveStoriesTV CEO & Founder Rachel Silver II How To Film Weddings
01:02:22

So many of us have been getting strikes against our Vimeo accounts out of nowhere. If you are like John, you are frantically downloading films, trying to find a way to get them all off of your server in case you get the boot. Well, it happened to John the other day. Strike 3. A song that he had licensed was flagged, and the 3rd strike was given. The first 2 strikes came from private videos from before 2010 (Dance Recitals) that had unlicensed music on them. With all of this craziness, John cancelled his Vimeo channel, and looked for other option. 

Nick and John sit down and chat with the founder of LoveStoriesTV, Rachel Silver, on her platform that is build for the wedding filmmaker. Can we use her player to upload our videos to share with brides? Will it be as clean as Vimeo? We even get real with questions on what their plans are with LSTV, are they making money off our videos, do they plan to in the future, and more. Rachel wasn’t afraid to tackle some of the hard questions, and we are so happy she did. We sure hope you take the time to check out this podcast, as we know it will help your business.

004: Taking Your Client Meetings To The Next Level II Phil Harbuck II How To Film Weddings
59:33

A question was posted in a forum on Facebook, about "what things should I say to a bride on our first meeting." John read Phil Harbuck's response, and thought he was definitely onto something. The truth is, there is no formula. You can't just run down a list of questions, wave a magic wand, and book expensive wedding packages. It takes a lot more than that.

In this episode, John sat down and talked with Phil about his approach to client meetings, and how he has become quite successful over the years. They break down what they do when talking to brides, how they make sure they are taken care of, and their strategies for making sure brides book them if they are the right fit.

In the How To Film Weddings Podcast number 4, listen in as these two really get into the details of doing the hard work, the right way, over time, and seeing results. Can't wait for you to hear from these two!

003: How Nick Booked His First $5,000 Wedding Package II How To Film Weddings
52:50

Something huge happened for Nick this week. After 6 years filming weddings, he booked his first $5,000 wedding film. Yep, you heard that right. $5,000. 5,000 buckaroos. 5,000 smackeroonies. This is a huge milestone in a wedding videographers world, so John sat down and interviewed Nick on how it all began, and more importantly, how he got to booking $5,000 for a wedding. We start at the beginning of his business, and walk through the timeline of what he did, and how long it actually took to reach this milestone.

Sometimes as wedding videographers, we think we should be charging more, or our film should look better, or so many things. But the truth of the matter is, we all start somewhere. You have to build the house one layer at a time, one brick at a time. We take an hour to break down the process it took to actually get there.

Should you expect to charge $5,000 in your 2nd year of business? Not likely. But, there is hope. Tune into the podcast to see just how Nick did it!

002: How To Get Found on YouTube II How To Film Weddings
56:39

So here is the deal. YouTube is really important to your wedding video business. Google (yeah, the largest search engine in the world) owns YouTube, and highly favors the videos you upload to the platform. Also, your potential brides aren't necessarily scrolling through Vimeo for wedding films. Yes, it is impressive to have a great looking embedded video through Vimeo or other services. But where does YouTube stand in 2018?

Nick and John talk about everything YouTube, and how they have each grown their channels exponentially in the last year. We break down how we upload, how we title the video, description, how we tag videos (hugely important step), and how we get our brides to watch and share the videos.

001: Nick Interviews John on How To Book Big Weddings II How To Film Weddings
01:01:50

Nick and John were having so many conversations about how John goes about booking the right clients, and getting paid what he is worth for the weddings. After about 3 weeks of back and forth text messages, they decided maybe they should just do a call and record it.

Pretty much daily, John get a message on Facebook, asking about his pricing model, and how he goes about averaging $6000 and up per wedding film. So hopefully this conversation will help you with your mindset toward your bookings. Again, we don't think we know it all, but we think that the proof is in the pudding.

John is constantly connecting with brides that come in with the $2500-$3500 budget, that end up spending thousands more. They do this when they SEE THE VALUE that John can add to their wedding day.

We hope you enjoy this podcast, let us know if you have any more questions. We would love to hear from you!
