Lost Isle is a team of visual storytellers
based out of Charleston, South Carolina and Bali, Indonesia. We have been collectively shooting this industry for 5 years and we absolutely love what we do. There's something so magical about capturing life-embracing moments. Our creative style is much influenced based on the people we shoot with. We are here to help you tell your story whichever way you want to tell it.
there for the details that matter
moments in time, memories for life
“The camera is arguably one of the most important of all inventions... it is the single tool that has the ability to stop time, record history, generate art, tell stories, and communicate messages that transcend language like nothing else ever conceived”
Don & Andrea
“Lost Isle exceeded my expectations!! They were so easy to work with from start to finish, responding to questions promptly, and easing all my concerns. The staff on our wedding day was so awesome. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and seemed to fit right in with our photographer as well. The finished product was more than we ever imagined. The film portrayed all of the intimate moments between me and my husband, as well as the fun aspects of the reception.”
Why do we need a wedding film? Are photos enough?
Plain and simple... photos capture the moment someone cries, laughs, or smiles. But why did they do that? That's what a film will show you. We'll make sure you don't miss any of those precious moments while you enjoy your special day!
cinematography or videography?
Cinematography is more of how you shoot and edit to tell a story. Videography is more about shooting and documenting. Both are fine but we prefer to tell a story!
Do you travel?
We love destination weddings! Take us somewhere breathtaking and we will create a timeless masterpiece for you! Travel fees may apply.
What's your payment plan?
We require 40% deposit to secure your wedding date and the cinematographers. The remaining 60% must be paid at least one week from the wedding date.
how much should i budget for this?
If you decide to use us for both video and photo that would be 2-3 people for 8-10 hours, running around with heavy equipment and then editing everything to give you a priceless family heirloom that you will cherish for the rest of your life. You definitely don't want to cut costs on something you will keep forever! Any of our services typically start out at $1,500 and moves up depending on what you want. Contact us for more info.
Can i pick the music?
We absolutely welcome you to show us the music you want to use. We will always be honest with you and let you know if we feel the song is not the right fit!
When will I recieve my film and/or photos?
The film will be delivered to you via youtube link 2-6 weeks after the wedding. Photos 1-3 weeks after.
How do you film a wedding?
There is nothing more important to us than recording the story of the wedding day, the excitement, the laughter and the tears as they happen on the day itself. At certain times, we will give directions, but minimally not to disturb your natural actions on the day. This enables us to capture the day in the most natural way possible.
We like to film normally with 2 people, as this provides more dynamics. We do our best to get the shot and get out. You'll hardly notice we're there!
What is a documentary edit?
A documentary edit showcases your entire ceremony and reception! All of the speeches, toasts, important dances, etc. will be in your documentary film. These are typically about 15-45 min long, depending on the length of your ceremony/reception.
How do you capture audio?
We use lav mics and attach them to the officiant and/or groom. They're strong enough to pick up the bride’s voice which is crucial for capturing the vows! If you have a DJ during your ceremony, we will simply plug into his soundboard to record the sound.
how long will the wedding film be?
We personally do not like to set a limit on the actual wedding film. What's most important to us is we tell the WHOLE story! So it can be a 4 minute film or an 8 minute film.
Do you do other types of videos?
Yes we can! Contact us for more info
