THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Chris and his team was the best decision we made. They are super talented professionals who pay close attention to detail, are amazing to work with, and have forever left a beautiful mark in our lives. But let me tell you what also matters: Chris’ creativity & adaptability. This team isn’t just professional, on time, and caring. But they are smart and quickly change a chaotic read more…

I cannot say enough great things about Bells & Whistles! I would 10000% recommend them to anyone getting married. They did the videography at my wedding and the wedding video is literally incredible. A work of art. I still cannot stop watching it and the wedding was in September (here, check it out: https://vimeo.com/645406180)! Camilo and Anthony shot the wedding day and read more…
Alina & Richard
Bells & Whistles Photography + Video truly captured my wedding day and all its essence in a way that has made me feel so lucky they were available for booking on my special day. Chris (the owner) was amazing from beginning to end with booking, rebooking (thanks covid), and speaking on the phone for almost an hour on what I wanted in my timeline as the bride. German and Nunzio were on time read more…

Chris and German did an AMAZING JOB – better than we could have ever imagined. We hired them for our engagement shoot (German) and our wedding day (photos + video + photo booth | German, Chris, plus other members of their team). They never disappointed and were GREAT listeners (I’m very picky and they made everything feel calm and perfect). My husband and I did our read more…

Bells & Whistles was amazing! Very responsive, were flexible and kind. They worked amazingly with the other vendors and provided a top notch video in an extremely timely manner. I actually spent months reviewing different videographers in the Miami area, as this was a very very important piece for me, and I ended up going with Bells & Whistles based on how they captured the moment read more…

Having fun on the biggest day of your life is the most important element of our art direction, which is enthusiastically applied to both photography and videography. This results in the most natural photos and the most cinematic videos. Our method ensures that you don’t have to do things twice as our photography and videography direction works seamlessly in unison. You will know what to do with your hands! It's also nice to have one less vendor to coordinate and plan with. Add the photo booth and it’s two fewer vendors to coordinate. Let us handle it all. See our blog post for more information.
We don’t aim for a specific number as we want to deliver as many shots as possible. This works out to Approximately 80-100 edited shots per hour. On average, about 800 photos for an 8 hour wedding.
Unlike most of our competitors, we include a full-length movie in all our videography packages. We feel that the long movie will be the most meaningful, ten years from now. Our movie includes the full ceremony, grand entrances, first dances, speeches, etc. it will be edited and color graded, adding music and special effects like slow motion, but it boils down to the coverage of your special day, in a chronological sequence. The length of the movie will depend on your unique wedding, but will typically range from 1 to 2 hours.
Drone coverage is included in all our videography packages at no extra cost.
We know you are eager to see the photos and videos as soon as possible, but final retouching and editing requires time and attention. We are however reputed to be much faster than industry standards. The season your wedding is scheduled can affect delivery deadlines, but 4 to 6 weeks represents a safe estimate.
We deliver the images via online gallery: you get a link for downloading the images. You get a print release so you can decide if you want to print the complete collection or just some of them. We would be happy to print your photos or design your wedding album. Contact us for more details!
This depends on a few factors. If you are having a ceremony with less than a hundred people, if you are both staying in the same hotel/location, if you are doing a first look, you may be okay with 1 photographer and 1 videographer, but we'll be happy to address your specific questions more in detail. See our blog post for more information.
Yes, we'll be happy to deliver raw files upon request, at no extra cost.
Yes, we do. We will create a timeline that fully meets the requirements of your special day.
We are based in Miami, Florida and most frequently serve the South Florida area, however, we don’t charge travel fees from Orlando to Key West. We are also available to travel for destination weddings. We only require the cost of airfare and hotel for out of State Weddings.
We only require a 25% deposit upon signing the contract. The balance is due on the wedding day; however, this can be tailored to your needs as well.
We don't charge fees for paying with a credit card. So pay for your wedding and earn those points from your card issuer without any added fees.
