Couples Questionnaire - Happy Tears
A PERSONAL MESSAGE/DISCLAIMER, FROM THE FOUNDING 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). In other words; with the mass multitudes of engaged couples out there, and the multitudes of videographers as well, we realize that it’s virtually impossible for us to be a fit, for everyone, and visa-versa. So; we utilize this questionnaire, on behalf of our prospective couples, as an initial self-screening tool. With that being said; if, as you are progressing through this questionnaire, you may find yourself not liking the experience (example: if you may feel it's too long / too detailed / too unique for some reason), it might be a possibility that we may not be a fit for one another? If; however, you make it to page 2 herein, you will instantly come to see clearly, why we are purposely unique, to every other video/cinematography company in our marketplace.
Final Up-Front Note/TIP: If you are reading this questionnaire, via your smartphone; please close this questionnaire, and reopen/revisit it, from a computer (or a tablet/iPad at the very least). Your experience will be much better; quite frankly.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE! WE HOPE YOU ENJOY AND APPRECIATE THIS QUESTIONNAIRE EXPERIENCE!
VERY IMPORTANT: This is our niche. This is where our heart is; making wedding videography affordable to those who deserve it. Example; depending on your categorical eligibility, you may be entitled to a generous discount of as much as fifty percent (50%) off our full cinematography service! So please check as many of the following items, that apply to you!

What describes your experience, with our website? (Check as many applicable boxes as you'd like)
I/we did not, yet, have the time, to review the Happy Tears website
I/we only invested a minimal amount of time, into the Happy Tears website
I/we reviewed the Happy Tears website, but did not watch any of the video samples
I/we watched some footage, of some of the video samples, on the website
I/we watched quite a bit of footage, of multiple videos, on the website
I/we reviewed the packages, and the "6 Tear" package might be a good fit for us
I/we reviewed the packages, and the "5 Tear" package might be a good fit for us
I/we reviewed the packages, and the "4 Tear" package might be a good fit for us
I/we reviewed the packages, and the "3 Tear" package might be a good fit for us
I/we reviewed the packages, and the "2 Tear" package might be a good fit for us
I/we reviewed the packages, and the "1 Tear" package might be a good fit for us
I/we have not yet given much thought to any particular package...
Please tell us which of the below budget ranges best describes your budget range?
$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 - Remember that statement about "VALUE SHOPPERS"? This is our SWEET SPOT! We're quite realistic...
$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?!?
What is your impression / opinion of our Website? (PLEASE BE HONEST! Any constructive criticism helps us to continually improve...)
In your above evaluation, of our website, were you on our MOBILE site, or our DESKTOP site?
Both Mobile AND Desktop
If you may have taken the time, to thoroughly review our website, in its entirety, then by all means please feel free to let us know what, in your opinion, we could potentially do, to improve upon our website. (Please feel free to be honest! We have very thick skin!! Any constructive criticism helps us...)
What is/are your primary reason(s) why you have reached out to us? (check any/all that may apply...)
I/we love Happy Tears' sample videos, that I/we watched, on your website!
I/we am/are impressed with your extraordinary Online Reviews!
I/we are impressed with your very generous discounting protocol for those who are truly in-need...
I/we won a Happy Tears prize/discount, at a recent bridal show!
I/we are actually not 100% in agreement, with each other, for videography. While one of us would love to have it, the other half...seems to feel that "photography is enough...". So; the jury is still out...so to speak.
The person who referred us, to you, has given HAPPY TEARS a glowing endorsement!!
I/we are NOT "CHEAP", and I/we are NOT 'SPEND-THRIFTS' either! Rather; we are 'VALUE SHOPPER'S', and I/we can clearly see that Happy Tears offers MORE VALUE FOR EVERY DOLLAR... At least that's what we want: "MORE...FOR LESS...".
I/we have been videographer-shopping, and we do not feel we've found the right one, yet.
For what other vendor services are you still shopping?
Audio/Visual Projection, to show a photo and/or video slideshow-montage, at reception or looping on a monitor during our cocktail hour.
Same-Day Video-Editing, of all video events up to and including the ceremony, to be produced and ready to show via Audio/Visual Projection...
Venue / Catering
Dj / Emcee
Live (Band) Entertainment
Wedding Dance Choreography / Instruction
Cake / Pastries
Tuxedo / Groom-Groomsmen Attire
Wedding Planner (Planning Assistance)
Graphic Design (Invitations, Save-the-Date Announcements, Ceremony Program, Etc.)
Travel Agent (We need to book our Honeymoon!)
Real Estate Agent (We need to buy a home!)
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?
More than 3
How about other couples, you know, who are NOT YET engaged, but probably will be; sooner or later? 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! 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 pops the question! Maybe YOU can be that person to ALERT ALL EVENTUAL 'GROOMS-TO-BE', who you may know...?? ;-)
