Wedding Cinematography & COVID:
How We’re Adapting

The Impact of COVID on Weddings

COVID-19 has challenged weddings since early 2020. The pandemic has had a massive effect on our customers, as well as our regular projects. Our clients have suffered a huge emotional toll, and thousands of weddings across Los Angeles have been called off. At Vanilla Film, we sincerely care about each and every couple we work with. This is why we are dedicated to taking a flexible approach when it comes to re-arrangements, postponements and cancellations, as well as all other aspects of our wedding cinematography services.

If you’ve been planning your wedding in the last few years or so, there’s a good chance you’ve had to bite the bullet and delay your special day. We understand that this is a gut-wrenching, but ultimately sensible decision, that thousands of couples have had to make not only in Los Angeles, but across the country.

Letting You Know That We Care

We want to assure each and every couple currently reading this with one thing: we care about you.

Calling off the big day isn’t easy. Which is why we’ve put special considerations in place to accommodate for any couple that finds their scheduled date needs to be changed. We are also priding ourselves in our friendly and approachable communications, where we hope to give clients confidence in our ability to film safely.

What We’re Doing To Help

Just because your wedding has been put on hold, it doesn’t mean that your big day has to suffer. With us, you’ll be able to capture your wedding in all of its glory, with wedding cinematography that is professional, personal, and above all, safe.

Our role has never to simply catch enough footage and call it a day. We’re experts at making couples feel relaxed on camera (read this inspiring story how couple managed their 2 postponements after covid has impacted on their wedding). That means we help couples’ personalities and love for one another really shine through. Our goal is doing the everything we can to make our clients feel relaxed in light of COVID. We have adopted a stress-free and patient process to ensure that safety standards apply in this stressful period.

We adhere to all current government guidelines. Vanilla Film also takes extra measures to secure the health and safety of yourselves, your guests and our staff.

Here are just a few of the changes we’ve been introducing:

  • Extra flexibility in cancellations and postponements
  • Increased filming distancing and minimal on-site staff members
  • Staff equipped with medical grade masks and disinfectant
  • Longer grace period for deposits and cancellations

All in all, we’re doing our very best to make things easier for you. We all know how hard it has been, particularly for those hoping to have made some life-long memories in 2020. Our goal is to give every couple the chance to have the wedding day of their dreams.  We hope to hear from those of you looking to immortalize your special day very soon.

Sincerely Yours, Vanilla Film
