Book & Assign

book + assign

  • Available jobs will show when you login to the portal.

  • PLEASE KEEP UP YOUR CALENDAR - It's SO important that you stay on top of your calendar and BEFORE accepting a job double check everything.  If you ask for a reassignment less than 6 months from the wedding date, there will be a $400 reassignment fee.​

  • Contact Client - within 24 hours send a text to set up your first phone call.  You will be paid $50 as a deposit for the wedding.  For example, if your pay is $600 for a wedding, we will pay you $50 when you complete the first phone call, $50 when you complete the second phone call, and then $500 upon completion of the wedding.  Your hourly rate of $100 for wedding day coverage hours covers all of the work outside of the wedding as well.  

  • Travel Pay - The first 25 miles from the closest major city are included.  Every mile beyond those 25 miles, you will be paid $1.50 per mile.  For example, if the wedding is taking place 50 miles from the closest major city, you will be paid for 25 miles, or 25*$1.5 = $37.50.  We will always include travel pay in the original offer. Please look at the travel pay right away and let us know if you have any concerns.  If locations change, please let us know and we will work with the client and you to update it correctly.  ALWAYS ask about travel BEFORE the event takes place. 

  • Parking fees:

    • For weddings: It is the responsibility of the team member to pay for their own parking fees. When requesting a job, if you see that the venue will charge a parking fee, you may include that in your bid amount with a note indicating the additional amount is for parking. If you are awarded that job, you will be paid the additional amount requested for parking. However, once you have been awarded or accepted a job, no additional payment will be added for parking.​

    • For engagements: Once a location is determined by the client and the photographer, if there is a parking fee, please let the client know that a parking fee will be added to their proposal and let Alice know what the parking fee is so she can add it to your payment. This is the same policy for travel payment for engagement sessions.

Videographer

Management Team

phone calls

The primary videographer/photographer makes 2 phone calls for each wedding.  One within 2 weeks of booking and one 2 weeks before the wedding.  This is the minimum communication we require...feel free to text/call more if it works best for you.

Invoicing & Call Resources

  • Before each call, review the "Wedding Details" page & update this during/after your call.  ALL information you gather about the weddings NEEDS to be documented here.  

  • Use the Phone Call Resource documents to guide your calls. Resources can be found here: 
            • Phone Call Video:  https://www.ivorygrove.com/trainingvideos
            • PDF (Links) for the calls: Client Call DocumentPhotography Call Document  / 
    Videography Call Document 
     

  • When submitting your invoice after each call, if  there are unknown Wedding Details, input TBD or Unknown.  

  • You will receive a $50 deposit for the wedding after each call.  

  • The "Notes" section is for communication with Alice.  

Topics for call

  • Introduce yourself.

  • Ask about their love story.

  • Schedule the engagement session (if there is one).  Send Alice a quick text letting her know when and where this will be.

  • Find out what is most important to them.  What kind of style do they want (formal/stage, informal/reportage, or a mix of both)?

  • Ask them how they would prefer you to move during the ceremony.  Some couples want you to keep your distance, and others say "come in closer!"

  • Go over the shot list with them.  What do they for sure want photos and videos of?  

  • What audio do they want to be recorded?  

  • If they ask about songs, this page has all the info they need. You can refer them to Lindsey with any further questions about songs.

  • Ask if there are any sensitive family situations you should be aware of.

  • Please ask the couple what attire would be most appropriate.  Some weddings are very formal and others very casual.  If they do not specify, wear business casual.

  • Timeline (see below)

Create & plan the wedding-day timeline

  • It is ultimately the responsibility of the photographer/videographer to discuss in detail the client's needs/wants & create the timeline around the information provided. Any additional information you find out will need to be added to the wedding details page. 

  • Let Alice know if the client isn’t communicating so Lindsey can reach out and we have documented that we tried to get the information.​

  • Work together with other IG team members to discuss wedding day flow. Videographers will need more time for equipment set up & special audio requests, such as letter readings. 

  • If Carly or Lindsey has discussed a baseline timeline, it will be in the wedding details section. Always confirm with the couple this timeline & if it's the most recent. Carly & Lindsey are available to help build a timeline if needed. Sample timelines are linked below as a starting place, however, each wedding will have a unique flow to take into consideration. 

  • Things to consider

    • Golden hour - (2 hours preceding sunset) is the best time to take photos.  We recommend scheduling 30 minutes for couple portraits at some point during this timeframe.  Couples are often disappointed if they don't have any of these natural light photos.  If they haven't set a ceremony time yet, encourage them to set it so that there is time for all of the post-ceremony photos during golden hour.  Advise them on whether or not it's a good idea to do a first look based on the sunset time and the ceremony time.  In general, summer (later sunsets) is not a good time for a first look and winter (earlier sunsets) is. But it all depends on actual times.

    • Getting ready - If it is at the same location, usually an hour is enough for the girls and 30 minutes for the boys (as long as they are okay with us coming towards the end and getting the finishing touches.)  It's best if everyone is completely ready (except for the girls having their dresses on) before we arrive (we prefer telling everyone to be ready 30 minutes before our scheduled arrival time so if they are running late it doesn't throw the whole day behind schedule).

    • Detail shots - we typically snag these first and allow 30 minutes so we have time to arrange the items and take to natural light if necessary.  It's best if all items are gathered and ready to go before we arrive: wedding dress, shoes, rings, perfume, jewelry, bouquets (have the florist deliver before we arrive), two invitation suites, veil, lipstick, hairpiece

    • Transition/set-up for the ceremony - we like to plan on all photos/videos being done 30 minutes before the ceremony so there is time to set up for audio and get some detail shots of the ceremony before it begins

    • If the couple would like to do a first look and bridal party photos before the ceremony, we recommend starting this at least 1.5 hours before ceremony time.

    • Family photos after the ceremony typically last about 30 minutes. If they didn’t do a first look, allow an extra hour for bridal party and bride/groom portraits.

    • Reception - traditional receptions with the basic stuff: first dances, a few toasts, bouquet toss, cake cutting, I allow 3 hours (including a 30-60 minute break). We do not need to stay until the end of the reception UNLESS the couple wants exit photos (with sparklers generally).

It is not acceptable to book a session with a current client outside of Ivory Grove.  After the wedding is complete, you are welcome to maintain contact with clients and work with them independently on other events.

shoot the wedding

WEDDING DETAILS

​Please review and update this page. Second shooters may only be scheduled for part of the coverage time.  Be sure to review this.  The primary shooter to inform the second shooter when to be there and what they should cover.

SECOND SHOOTERS

  • Make sure to connect with the primary shooter 1-2 weeks before the wedding.  Use this document to guide your conversation & capture necessary info:
    Second Shooter Document

  • The primary shooter informs the second shooter when to arrive and depart. Remember that coverage hours for second shooters are often less than the primary shooters.

  • The primary shooter is responsible to inform the second shooter on what they should cover.

  • Second shooters should pay attention to the primary shooter and position themselves across from them (not in their shot) so you are getting different angles.  Don't simply follow them around, standing right behind them and getting the same shot.

  • The primary shooter should try to get both getting-ready events (if they are in the same location) to keep the gallery consistent.  Please pay attention to how the day is going and you can split if necessary.

  • During family portraits, second shooters can help with the shot list or get photos of guests at cocktail hour.

  • We recommend that the primary shooter gets all of the formal portrait shots to keep the gallery consistent.

  • Primary shooters and second shooters should be consistently communicating throughout the wedding day to ensure that everything is covered properly.

 

ARRIVE EARLY

(at least 30 minutes before the coverage time begins)

 

DRESS PROFESSIONALLY

Please ask the couple what attire would be most appropriate.  Some weddings are very formal and others very casual.  If they do not specify, wear business casual. Please do NOT wear flip-flops.

 

MEAL BREAKS

Keep in mind that our previous contracts had a section about meal breaks: We allowed one break (30-minute max for weddings booked after July 1, 2022, & 1-hour max for weddings booked before July 2, 2022) in coverage.  For example, the client may reserve 4.5 hours and have the schedule be 2-7 with a 30-minute break given during dinner.  We also require a break when coverage time is more than 5 hours.  This break may be substituted by a meal provided for you by the client.

  • As of March 1, 2023, all coverage is continuous and the clients may not "extend" their coverage by providing a break.

  • As of October 17, 2023, for all weddings over 5 hours, clients will be required to provide a meal to team members.

 

 

EQUIPMENT

  • You're responsible for your own gear.  Primary shooters DO NOT provide gear for second shooters.

  • Primary shooters are required to have a full-frame backup body.

  • Sensor & lenses for dust/scratches.  Clean regularly (DIY video or take it into a camera store).

  • Have plenty of batteries and empty SD cards (periodically switch out cards to safeguard against possible corruption)

 

HAVE FUN & THINGS TO REMEMBER!

Be a positive and calming force for them on what can be a stressful day. 

  • Take charge when needed (family photos, portraits of bride/groom)

  • Blend in when needed (ceremony, reception) 

  • Remember that especially with COVID, do NOT touch anyone without permission.

  • Ask how close they would like you during the ceremony.  Some couples prefer you keep your distance, and others want close-ups.

  • Make guests aware of where equipment is at, especially in tight spaces like the ceremony.

  • Remember to be conscious of the guest's view, and try your best to not block it.  A good zoom lens is really helpful for ceremonies!

  • Smile, and ask for a smile!  Help things move along without being pushy. 

  • Work cohesively with the other IG team members.

  • Be aware of conversations that happen while video/audio is being recorded.  Keep it professional - everything recorded is delivered to the client in the raw footage.

  • If you would like to bring an assistant to a wedding, please contact Alice first.  Don't take any additional people without getting it cleared first.

PHOTOGRAPHERS

  • Shoot in RAW. This is required. (Uncompressed RAW is preferred.  JPEGS & DNG are not acceptable.) 

  • Resolution needs to be 20MP or higher.

  • Shoot in MANUAL MODE. Set white balance to Kelvin.

  • Keep your Aperture/F-stop low (1.2-2.8) to produce a sharp subject and an out-of-focus background. (Use your discretion on larger group photos and special situations.)

  • 24mm wide-angle lenses are great for group shots and 50mm/35mm are great for portraits.

  • Keep your ISO as low as possible to limit grainy and low-quality images (portraits - shouldn't be above 600). 

  • Keep your shutter speed mid-high to maintain sharp subjects (stay above 1/250). 

  • External lights are a must for low-light situations!  Always DIFFUSE your flash. Speedlights, external standing lights, or video lights work well.

  • Be creative and don’t take the same shot too many times!

  • Remember the rules of composition: leading lines, rule of thirds, fill the frame, don't cut off limbs, use frames, and create depth.

  • Set the date and time on your cameras so that photos will be easily ordered in the editing process. Use  https://time.gov/ for the exact time.

  • Do NOT use a silent shutter if there are fluorescent lights.

  • If you want to shoot into the sun, be sure to use a lens hood and check that your lens is high-quality enough to handle that amount of light.  Sun orbs cannot be removed through editing.

  • Our editors have compiled a great list of tips just for you.  

VIDEOGRAPHERS​

  • We produce our films at a 16:9 ratio. (Please be aware of this ratio when shooting weddings for framing reasons.)

  • Codec: H.264, H.265, ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes RAW

  • Color Space: (okay to switch between color spaces when switching locations - going outdoor to indoor)

    • Rec709 or Standard (preferred for low-light conditions)

    • LOG (preferred for outdoor and good lighting conditions, do NOT use in low-light conditions)

    • HLG

    • If LOG profile is used, the appropriate conversion LUT for your corresponding camera and settings must be provided with the data.​

  • Bit Rate: 

    • 8-bit for Rec709

    • 10-bit minimum for Log Profile

  • Frame Rate:

    • 60 fps or 120 fps for most shots (please pick one and be consistent on each wedding)

    • 24 fps for shots where audio is being recorded and will need to be synced to the video.  Shooting in 24 fps can also help with low light conditions.

  • Resolution: 1080p

  • Stabilization: Gimbal (required for all the footage)

  • Keep your Aperture/F-stop low (1.2-2.8 is even better).

  • Set white balance to Kelvin.

    • Make sure the white balance isn't too warm or too cold (always adjust this after the exposure is set).

  • Please set up a stationary camera to run continuously for the whole ceremony, speeches, and first look, reading of letters (anytime there is audio). This is in addition to the handheld camera to get different angles.

  • Change up your angles and the movements of your shots.

  • Make sure that your focus is on your subject.

  • Be prepared with external lighting for low-light situations.

  • Do not continuously record everything and pick only the best moments. (documentary films are the exception here, but most films are cinematic). 
     

DOCUMENTARY FILM GUIDELINES

  • Lead shooters are responsible for planning the layout of cameras, audio & communicating this to the other team members before the wedding. All documentary films will have 2 videographers. ​​

  • Set all cameras during the day to the same Codec, Color Space & Frame Rate.

    • 24 frames per second for all cameras during audio moments.

  • Use 3 cameras (or more if available) to continuously record during the main events such as the whole ceremony, speeches, and dances. ALL CAMERAS WILL BE RUNNING CONTINUOUSLY FOR THIS STYLE OF COVERAGE.​​

    • Ceremony: Select 2 cameras to be on tripods to get continuous coverage & angles of the groom's reaction/officiant view, & a wide view of the ceremony environment. The handheld camera (3rd camera) will be used to get the bride walking down the aisle & to reposition as needed.​

    • ​Speeches: Select 2 cameras to be on tripods to get continuous coverage of the speaker & wide view of the environment. The handheld camera will be used to get the bride and groom's reaction.

  • Use all microphones available to capture audio from the officiant, groom, bride, and music from the ceremony. 

    • If the bride is comfortable wearing a mic, hide the audio device so it is not showing in the film. Double sided tape & a leg strap is ideal. If she is not comfortable wearing a mic, place a mic on whoever is walking her down the aisle.

    • For speeches, mic the speaker and the couple at minimum. 

  • Please see additional resources on this type of film: 

 

AUDIO RECORDING

  • DISCUSS AUDIO REQUESTS AT LENGTH WITH THE CLIENT BEFORE THE WEDDING.

  • Letter Reading: Mic both the groom and the bride for reading of letters.

  • Ceremony: It is required to use a lapel mic for both the groom and the officiant (The bride is optional - let the client make that decision and warn them of the risk of not micing the bride.). Remember to give them the option of recording their vows on their phones and sending us the files before or after the wedding day.

  • Reception: You may plug into the soundboard, BUT don't rely solely on this.  Always come prepared with a handheld mic or lapel mics.  If plugging into the soundboard, always test and check first.

  • Use a field mic or keep your on-camera mic on the whole time as insurance.

  • ALWAYS DOUBLE-CHECK THAT THE AUDIO IS RECORDING!

EXTRA HOURS

  • If the client needs to add extra hours on the day of, that is just fine.  Please let the client know that they will be billed for those extra hours after the event.  ($150 per team member is the client cost. $150 for just a photo or just video.  $300 for photo and video.)  You will be paid your normal rate of $100 per hour.)

USAGE OF IMAGES/FOOTAGE

  • You are welcome to edit your raw images yourself and use those images on your social media and to promote your personal business.

  • Don't post your personally edited images from sessions & weddings until after we've delivered the gallery to the client.

  • Ivory Grove will deliver all final media to the couple.

  • Please do not offer sneak peeks to the couple.

Photographers Upload Process

HIGH-UPLOAD SPEED IS NECESSARY.  CHECK YOUR SPEED. (10 mbps minimum)
download.png

*Please do not post photos on your own social media until we have sent the media for your approval.

1.  Back up ALL your media

  • First on your own drives right after a wedding shoot.  

  • Please keep them on your hard drive for 6 months after the event date - just in case they wanted a specific photo or they remember you recording a specific moment, or there were files missing in the upload.

  • Don't clear any media from your cards until you have confirmed that all files are on both your personal drive and our dropbox account.

  • Always shoot in RAW and only upload RAW files (if exported through a program, make sure they are at the highest possible quality setting)

2.  Cull your images

Here is a typical estimate of how many photos you should have in your culled folder for each wedding.  It is okay if it's slightly more IF all of the photos are good.  Please watch for obvious repeats, out-of-focus images, eyes closed, etc.  The final gallery is best when the wedding has been well-culled.

  • Engagement session: 100-150 photos

  • Wedding day (4+ hours): 400-500 photos

  • Wedding day (6+ hours): 500-600 photos

  • Wedding day (8+ hours): 600-700 photos

  • Wedding day (10+ hours): 700-800 photos

  • Second Shooters: 25-50 per hour

Photo Mechanic is a great tool for culling photos faster.  It's been a game-changer for some of our photographers! (We don't have any affiliation with them and it is totally up to you if you decide to purchase it

3.  Submit Your Invoice

  • Through the portal for "Final Upload." 

  • Invoices are processed every Wednesday, and those received in time will be deposited by that Friday.
    • The amount of the invoice will automatically populate with the remaining amount for the wedding.  If the total pay for the wedding was $800, and you received $50 for phone call 1 and $50 for phone call 2, then you will be paid $700. 

    • Include the total number of photos that you are uploading so we can verify that we have everything you uploaded.

    • Please text Alice about notes:

      • Anything helpful for the editors on this wedding

      • If you are missing any key photo/footage and the reason why.  (ex. no drone footage because it was too windy.)

      • Any extra hours (remember to tell the clients they will be charged for these)

      • Any problems or mishaps that we should know about.

4.  Verify Upload

  • This is VERY important!  Sometimes your browser will time out and files get missed in the upload.  PLEASE verify that ALL of your files have been uploaded. Use the "Raw Videos (Share)" link that is right below the "Raw Videos (Upload)" link in the Assignment Details on the portal.  The Share link will allow you to see everything in the folder that we will then share with the editing team to edit.

      • Any problems or mishaps that we should know about.

Upload folders to Dropbox Request links.png

Troubleshooting

If you're having trouble getting your files uploaded:

1. Check your upload speed

  • You can do this by a simple speed test:  https://www.speedtest.net/.  You'll need at least 10 Mbps, but it's best if you have something closer to 40.  If your upload speed is less than 10, I would contact your internet provider to troubleshoot and possibly look into getting a different provider.

 

2. Check your browser

  • Sometimes the browser puts limits on the upload speed and can make it so the upload "times out."  You can try updating your browser, clearing your cache, or using a different browser.

3. Upload outside of the browser

  • Another way around the browser issue is to have Dropbox downloaded and synced to your own computer.  There are two options for this.  Either of these will allow you to complete the upload outside of the browser.

  • Upload to your own Dropbox and send us a link to the folder.

  • Request that we invite you to the folder that we have already created.

4. Last resort - try a different platform

  • We really prefer that you upload your files to Dropbox, but as a last resort, if another platform, like Google Drive, works better for you, then you can upload to that platform and send us a link to that folder.

Edit & Deliver

edit + deliver

  • Edit - We will send raw files to the Ivory Grove editing team, and they will edit all images and videos.
