Marriage Videography Budget Calculator Data
A PERSONAL MESSAGE, FROM THE FOUNDER / OWNER, OF HAPPY TEARS:
"It is my deepest desire for our company, to work 'with' our couples, rather than 'for' them. More specifically, not every couple is a fit for 'Happy Tears' (or visa-versa) admittedly. I have an undying passion, for my company, my industry, and the art of marriage story-telling cinematography itself."
With the above being said, we do not want to 'SELL' you... Rather; we want to get to know you. Beyond that, we'd like for you to get to know us. And then, we would like for our decision to work together (or 'not'...) be a mutual one.
Note: If necessary; please revisit this questionnaire, when you have at least 15 minutes of your undivided attention to invest in its completion. To otherwise attempt to rush through it, will not do you any justice; in all honesty.
What are the full names of the Wedding Couple?
VERY IMPORTANT: This is our niche. This is where our heart is. This is actually the foundation upon which our company was built. Since there are no "Do-Overs", with weddings, one of our goals is to enable as many brides, as possible, to not be in a position of "regret" (i.e. to not end-up being one of those brides who simply regrets NOT HAVING A WEDDING VIDEO, after their wedding is in the history books!). If 'affordability' is an issue...we want to bend-over-backwards; to help as many couples, as we can!! So please check as many of the following items, that apply to you!
Military / Vet (past or present) - HAPPY TEARS THANKS YOU; FOR OUR FREEDOM!
Law Enforcement (Those who 'SERVE & PROTECT'...) - BLUE LIVES MATTER!
Nursing / Rank & File Health Care Provider / EMT / Etc.

Here's something really cool! Many couples, nowadays, are hiring a caricature artist, either instead of, or in addition to, having a photo booth... Hmmmm; Right??
What do you think about having a Caricature Artist, at YOUR wedding?
WE LIKE THIS! How much would it cost??
Just out of curiosity, would you like to have your dog(s) in your wedding party? Could your dog(s) use some "K-9 Wedding Etiquette" training? Please let us know if you're interested...and by all means please tell us about your dog(s)! We'd love to know all about your dog(s)! We are insane animal-lovers, here at Happy Tears!! :)
How many other couples, if any, do you know of, who are also engaged to be married? Both you AND the couples you refer to us, will get an added bonus discount (on top of whatever discounting, to which you are entitled, pursuant to our discounting protocol).
More than 3
How about other couples, do you know, who are NOT YET engaged, but destined for such?? We actually do 'Hidden-Cam Proposal' videos, COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE! For those who are at the PRE-engagement ring stage, maybe you'd like to let them know that we'd love to film their eventual proposal...?!? There are no strings attached, to this amazing offer (other than that we would have to of course be available, on the planned date of the Question-Popping!). Bottom Line: We sincerely LOVE doing these hidden-cam video's! It's as if it's not even "work"! Hence; why we charge $0. What do you think about this? Can you imagine if you knew about this, before YOU got engaged??? Please feel free to tell us what you think about this amazing opportunity! This is something of which we'd love to do more...but quite frankly; this is an area where most 'guys' need some help (probably from the girlfriends of the eventual bride-to-be). In other words; somebody has to alert the "boyfriend", about this opportunity, BEFORE he pop's the question! Maybe YOU can be that person to ALERT ALL EVENTUAL 'GROOMS-TO-BE', whom you may know...?? ;-)
Which of the below budget ranges best describes YOUR budget range? TIP/HINT: We encourage you not to "Low-Ball...", possibly thinking that such will ultimately get you the lowest price... This is not 'car-shopping'. Rather; it's much more important than that. Be realistic, with your selection, and know that regardless of your selection...we always strive to give our clientele as much as we can...for the lowest possible price! That is our pledge, to you, for sure!! :)
$3,000 to $4,000 - While cost is certainly a factor, what's more important, to us, is quality of both product and service.
$2,000 to $3,000 - Cost is a bit less important a factor...but we cannot afford to exceed $3,000, and actually need to be closer to the $2,000 bottom end of our range.
$1,500 to $2,000 - We would say that 'cost' and 'product/service quality' are equally important, but product/service quality isn't important enough, if such would cause us to exceed our maximum figure of $2,000.
$1,000 to $1,500 - We realize that we would very likely have to settle for something less than "ideal", with most videographers, in this low-budget range. BUT we were hoping that 'Happy Tears' could possibly be our salvation?!?
Let's be honest; weddings are insanely expensive; Right?!? We hope that you have gotten the feel, by now, that we are in your corner! Our objective is NOT to 'sell' you on buying our highest package, or anything of that sort! Actually; quite the opposite is the case. Our MISSION is to provide you with as MUCH as we can, at the LOWEST possible cost! Quite frankly, accomplishing this mission, time-after-time, is precisely how we've managed to amass the extraordinary reviews, that you've seen... So; this is what we'd like to achieve with you, as well. But we don't want to stop with just 'videography'! We actually want to be instrumental, in saving you, as much money as possible, on your overall wedding budget!! One of the best ways, for us to do this, is to invite you to as many of our bridal shows, that you'd like to attend! If you're still vendor-shopping, this is how you will end-up saving a lot of money; simply put! Check out the very short video, below, to get a flavor...
GREAT NEWS! YOU'RE ALMOST DONE! The next, and final, page is ALL ABOUT YOU! :)))
