Wedding Video in the Florida Keys
It's always my humble joy to be part of your day, working alongside the photographer, the officiant, the planners, the friends and family. I LOVE being in the thick of it and the silence of your all alone and beautiful sunset moments along the way.
Hi I'm Nada Jones
I'm the sponge absorbing your inspiration
Wedding Video in the Florida Keys is busy, rocking, beauty & trending - well it is for me. Chic is my style. Elegant is my goal. Laid back is my method. I've been loving the world through SONY ALPHA glass since 2010. Your video will be stunning. Your photographs will be legendary. I am just repeating what my clients say.
how many hours will I need?
Elopements - AKA Mini Weddings - are usually up to 3 hours. Which is my minimum time to be booked. The rate is $2175 - it includes 2 films all edited to deliver your beautiful legacy moments. Pro audio, pro 4K film, pro drone, licensed and insured. drone - far and weather permitting.
how many films will I get
We always make 2 films. your full ceremony with some highlights either side of it and the longer documentary film with all the details. If you want 90 seconds it'll be a little extra.
rain, covid, hurricanes, emergencies
Even rain does not stop me, nor our brides and grooms. We've never failed to capture the beauty and emotion of any of our weddings or elopements. What is booked happens. Period. If I'm late for any reason - it's only happened once in 11 years - ask me and I'll tell you why, but you get a full refund. And we still produce the films.
can we edit ourselves?
Absolutely. $525 per hour for the un-edited RAW files. You got it. We upload to dropbox or you bring an external hard drive and away you go!
what is your rate?
We set the rate at $725 per hour. - INCLUDES EDITING. Whatever you need will happen within that time frame, you'll be able to have me sort through your borrowed and blue, keepsake memory box, arrange flowers, rings, dresses, shoes, and robes, hair and make up, brides maids, grooms men, grooming kit (for those who groom) and everything from beautifully captured walk, the ceremony, first kisses, dances, speeches, cake and wild party. Add ons like time-lapse sunrises, sunsets.
where is your work so I can see it
Whatever we just produced is usually on Instagram right away. Find me at instagram.com/nadajonesweddingstoday - AND all my wedding and elopement work is on Vimeo, here is the link..
how long until we get the films?
You'll want to supply me with your list of songs, and other preferences for the films ahead of time. Once we have all that we produce within 14 days. Delivery by digital download. We keep the films forever on https://vimeo.com/nadajonesvideo
do you work with a photographer?
Yes, we work with all the photographers on earth. We love it when you tell them we are going to be beside them every step of their way. And we work hard to capture your best footage, while they also capture their best shots.

WEDDING - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Based in Key Largo, we shoot elopements and weddings all over South Florida. We travel to Homestead, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, North Carolina, Vermont, Chicago, London. We add a little into the price for travel.

2) does your work get published?
Yes! We are Key largo Chamber of Commerce's Featured photographer since 2020 our cover shots as well as 30 other images are spread throughout that beautifully printed magazine. Also, our films are all over Instagram and YouTube. A big part of our focus after your wedding, elopement, engagement is submitting the photos and video to the online and in print magazines. We love to do this. We always do it, unless you expressly tell us not to. Sometimes they get printed others times they don't. It's a gamble.
3) do you do small elopements and tiny weddings?
Yes! We love small weddings. We charge a minimum rate for our services, typically 3 hours. But we are negotiable based on the season. If we are NOT booked there is a chance we can do a discount. We love the small is beautiful theory....our fave events.
4) do you do large weddings?
Yes! We also love the energy and grandness of the large weddings. We charge more for more than 150 people, but we are happy to quote you based on an hourly rate minimum of 3 hours. Our packages begin at $1800 for 3 hours for standard to large weddings. Our packages begin at $3000 for 6 hours for standard weddings.
5) can I have drone?
Yes! We offer drone photo and drone video. We shoot real estate, social media and weddings with drone. It TOTALLY rocks. We must stress it has to be within the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) licensing and insurance regulations. We can discuss it. But pretty much anything within our acceptable daylight hours, and weather norms and assuming there are no NOTAM's or airports within 5 nautical miles, we will be great.
6) how many photographers?
I work with a team, on occasion, but our best work is shot solo. Alongside a photographer or doing both video and photo simultaneously. I always bring a 3 or 4 cameras. One for the main ceremony, one for each of the bride and groom. And which captures a lot more than you'd imagine. We get the most important angles with the moving camera.
7) do you do preparations & the bridesmaid party?
Of course! Who would not do that!! Yes. We do love the prep. We enjoy the transformation of you and your brides maids, groomsmen, family members from pre wedding to fully made up and ready.
8) what do you capture??
We capture large guest groups, and in small groups, family, wedding party, the emotion and the joy. We get the dancing and the cake cutting and the bouquet tossing and the first dances and the honeymooning..we get everything. Unless you prefer we miss something.
9) what is your style?
Cinematic highlights, Journalistic, Candid & Documentary: we can shoot every thing posed or everything natural or a mix of both. Whatever you want planned. So we don't miss the memory you have in mind. Or any of the shots you hope to see. Candid & Journalistic: we can just follow you around and stop you when we know it is going to be a perfect memory. (This is where you may have to trust us a bit) we don't miss a lot. We tend to get the big picture. We feel like we are 360.
10) how long until I get to see them? Or the film?
We process fast. We would send you a gallery of photographs within 48 hours. Sometimes sooner. Your full gallery would come a few days later. Via download link. You have private access, you can print or not, you get full copyright certificate to print. Films come 10 days later, or more. Sometimes faster. We offer 2 edits any beyond that are $39.75 an hour for additional video editing.
11) how many photos do I get?
You will get 300 to 900 shots depending on the length of your event. Elopements would be shorter so we would send you about 300 - 500 shots.
We shoot thousands...but we don't feel like you want to see that many. We shoot 'portraits' carefully, these are the magic printable shots you'll want on the mantle piece or your walls.
12) will you edit them to look pretty?
Yes! Colour, tone, sharpness, blemishes that CAN be removed with a couple of clicks will be removed if you so desire. Our biggest love is to take that not quite well lit or not quite straight shot and make it perfection. We love to edit. We offer one full edit of the whole gallery. That is what we send you. If you find some you want edited we discuss how long it will take and if there is a further charge. $39.75 an hour for additional photo or video editing.
13) do you do photoshop?
We DO NOT DO PHOTOSHOP. It is a service we offer. We would go elsewhere to get someone to do the work a graphic artist would do on your photos. We get it. But no swapping heads here. Sorry!
14) will I get a refund
We don't offer refunds. We would book you, and turn another client away in order to keep your scheduled booking. If there is ever a time where we are able to refund you, we will, but we have never been asked to refund a wedding. We have refunded weddings, when things were not looking favourable for us all. Fully refunded weddings still cost us money. So we usually keep a $100 fee.
15)do you know my wedding venue? - see FAQ number 1 above.
Simply too many locations to list. from the Historic Walton House in Homestead to Schnebly's Winery to Sombrero Beach in Marathon and everywhere in between.
Ask us if we have been to your chosen spot. We've shot wedding video, elopement video, engagement video and real estate video all over this beautiful paradise.
16) how can I print photographs?
https://nadakhalafjones.pixieset.com/nadakhalaf-jonesprintstore/ We offer printing at the link or you can download the photographs you love and print them ANWYHERE!
17) how do I get my videos?
We send you a link to share, download and embed your videos. You SHOULD DOWNLOAD THEM on to your hard drive and save them somewhere for posterity. Also share them with everyone and they will keep them for you too.
