ROAM AHEAD WEDDINGS

VIDEOGRAPHY | PHOTOGRAPHY

Roam Ahead Media is a small creative content business located in Newcastle NSW, owned by myself, Jen (I'll be your photographer & or videographer) & second shooter / partner in crime - Andy (filmmaker, drone op, Super8 wizard, dog lover & my fiancé). We're certainly not your average filmmakers!

We have been proudly shooting weddings since 2014 & have grown our unique expertise ever since then.

In the days we're not shooting weddings, we're covering live sets or creating music videos for several artists such as Client Liaison, Thundamentals, CXLOE, Trophy Eyes, Hands Like Houses & so on. If not that, then it is working with small to large businesses on their branding awareness, or digitising old media like photo negatives or slides, video tapes from those old handycams or super8 & 16mm film from those cameras back in 1960's.

We love to explore & have adventures whether that be camping, roadtrips, hiking to waterfalls or just taking on the short & dangerous journey to get some shnitty! - Get in ma belly!

It's easy to say that we love the outdoors! That & our fur-baby (Shandy), whom we love to spoil rotten!

Anyway, that's enough about me, what about you?

How It Works

How It Works

I’ve built a range of packages to choose from, where pricing starts at $3,200 through to $6,250 with payment plans available & options to custom build your own package! Pricing varies depending on the service you desire: eg: video or photo or both.

Elopements & Micro weddings are lower than my standard wedding packages.

What about pricing?

Super8 film is a way of recording video back in the 60s era! Despite the age of this media type, it's having a HUGE come back where filters to fake this look is massively trending all over social media. Why fake the super 8 look when we can actually film on it? Trust me, its different but a whole lot better than those filters faking it. If you wish to give super 8 a go - I guarantee you won't be disappointed! In fact, you will be so glad you gave it the chance and everyone is going to LOVEEEE it!

What makes this media type so special other than the look? Not many people can master this craft & it is quite expensive to buy this film, develop it and digitise it.
Buying one film reel + processing alone is about $100. The cameras themselves are hard to come by and range from $700-$3K for working quality film cameras. Digitising can easily add up too.
In regards to your wedding - we cover those costs!

Your film reels will actually last for a very long time. Far longer than flash drives, dvds, vhs tapes, handycam tapes and probably even us and our life -time.

With this service, you will receive this footage incorporated into your highlight film + the added bonus of another edit specifically just of Super 8 footage + you get to keep the film reel/s too! Perfect for handing down as your family heirloom for your future generations.

One film reel (cartridge) records around 3 minutes, so we can use as many film reels as we can if you're keen? One massive positive with this also, is that we digitise and scan the film all in-house with our 4K (resolution) scanner. This is something we’re quite proud about and absolutely love (this is also our other business - digitising and archiving of historic and family films).

Here are a few examples that we have digitised:
• Spacey Jane Super 8 Video - Digitised by Hunter Lake & Coast Digitising 

Wedding video (Andrew & Phoebe) which has Super 8 footage we shot incorporated into their highlight video

What is Super 8 or 8mm Film?

Heck Yeah, we do!
Get in touch so we can tailor a package to suit you.

Do you cover Elopements or micro weddings?

Well, you’re going to receive double the amount of footage and shots, so why not? It’s a safer option if you’re wanting anything over 6hrs coverage as well, as the day is pretty non-stop for us. Having the two shooters, allow for a variety of different angles and perspectives, throughout the entire day.

How is an additional Videographer or Photographer a good idea?

FAQs

This shoot will be roughly a 1.5hr-2hr shoot of us frolicking around having fun, laughing our guts out and having an absolute ball whilst you two get a little more familiar with being in front of the camera in an easy going environment. You will get to know me a lot better too, and see that it’s not that scary to be in front of the camera too. IDEA - these images could be used as your wedding invites!?

Why should I consider a Pre-wedding / engagement shoot?

Turnaround times vary depending on the time of the year and to what services are provided. A good estimate is 6-8 weeks.

We offer a rush fee for a faster turnaround time of 2-4 weeks. This means we will bring out the coffee, and edit throughout most days and nights to get this to you in this timeframe.
Please enquire about this if this is something you're after.

What's your turnaround time?

The final products will be handed over via an online digital link where you can download your files. Images will be on an elegant gallery where you can view, download and share with your friends and family. The videos will be the downloadable link.
And flash drives are provided upon request.

The footage is filmed & delivered in 4K resolution.

FAQs

It's a common way to reminisce - to physically hold and feel something. But mix that with quality and elegance. These albums will outlast us all! They're made from long lasting quality materials and are customisable to colours, style and aesthetic that your hearts desire. A lovely physical memento to keep on the coffee table, to give your parents, or grandparents to cherish and flick through.

S & K

Jen was extremely helpful and efficient in her delivery. She gave us options on song choices and kept us informed on her progress. The final output exceeded our expectations and will be something my husband and I will cherish forever. It is clear that her attention to detail and of the particulars is why her work is so great. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone who wants wedding videography

P & K

We watched the full video over the weekend and absolutely loved it!
There's so many little bits we missed on the day that we could watch again on the video
