FAQ's

Q. How long have you been filming weddings?

I’ve been filming weddings since 2016.

Q. How will you work with my photographer on the wedding day?

I strive for harmony with all your vendors on the wedding day! I love getting to work alongside photographers and work together with them in harmony to deliver you the best quality photos and videos on the wedding day. The key is collaboration and communication.

Q. When can I see my film?

Your wedding film will be delivered digitally 8-10 weeks after your wedding. 60 second sneak peeks are delivered the day after the wedding. If you opted for the raw footage this is delivered by mail 1-2 weeks after the wedding.

Q. How far in advance should I book my wedding?

I have a limited number of weddings I shoot each year. This is done to allow me to focus on crafting a unique film for each couple. The sooner you book, the more time I have to get to know you and make a film that will reflect you and your significant other.

Q. Do you travel?

I’ve filmed weddings in many states and love the opportunity to travel and visit new places. Because of this, travel fees outside of Virginia are very minimal.

Q. How do you choose your second filmmaker?

All of my second shooters run their own wedding film businesses, or have equivalent experience and professionalism.

Q. What does payment look like?

Your wedding day can be stressful. Payments and contracts don’t have to be. All payments and contracts are completed online. Payment can be easily made from your credit or debit card. I require a 30% deposit that's paid when you book me to secure your day. The remaining balance can be paid monthly before the wedding or 2 weeks before the wedding. The booking process only takes about 5 minutes.

Q. I’ve booked. What’s next?

I love getting to know my couples. Having the opportunity to meet new people and understand their stories is a beautiful thing. Once you’ve booked, we’ll setup a time to FaceTime or Skype so I can get to know you and hear your story. Feel free to reach out with any questions after you’ve officially been booked. As the wedding day gets closer we’ll talk specifics about the day. If you have a wedding planner I can also talk with them to make your life easier!

Michael Lemley


Hello!

My name is Michael Lemley and I'm the founder of Michael Lemley Films. My interest in filmmaking sparked at the young age of 6 years old when I began teaching myself how to edit and shoot video. I’ve loved the medium of video for as long as I can remember. I truly believe in the power that video has in creative storytelling. I love being able to tell the story of a couple in a creative way through my wedding films. It’s a moment in time that you can watch forever and I take great pride in being able to capture those memories in a creative and cinematic way and allowing you to share those memories with the next generation.

When I'm not behind the camera, I love to travel. Being able to explore new cultures and cities and capture the beauty of the world we live in is something that makes me happy.

 

 

Let’s talk.

I’m excited to work alongside couples that are full of life, not afraid to laugh, and possess a deep love for each other. I love getting to know my couples to be able to create a film that’s creatively crafted to fit YOU!

I can't wait to hear from you. Fill out THE form below and I will get back to you within 24 hours to set up a call (or text).
