True emotions can't be staged, but they can be captured.

Yes, I actually love traveling! I live in Bratislava – Slovakia, but I’m willing to go wherever you are – and the crazier the better, so hit me up with your plans to marry inside a Hawaiian volcano or among the llamas in the middle of Patagonia.

Capturing moments among people with minimal intervention and maximum emotional commitment. We strive to give you a realistic but at the same time dreamy film from a modern artistic viewpoint. Our style is very laid back and casual. We love capturing real emotion. The best video comes from simply letting you be you.

I film your entire ceremony and reception is edited as it happened to the live event recorded audio. I am mobile to capture the most interesting angles and emotions. I also record audio from various recorders and sync them up in the editing room. Your ceremony & reception sections are edited, audio mixed and color graded. The ceremony and reception sections include your entire ceremony and main events from your reception such as introductions, first dance, parent dances, speeches and cake cutting.
The final part of the reception section is possibly the most fun part of the film. It’s all of the awesome dancing moments that didn’t make it into your Cinematic Wedding Film. I edit these dancing shots to a fun dance song to cap of the night!

Love Story
The Cinematic Wedding Film is a 3 to 6 minute short film that captures all of the very best moments of your day edited into your unique story. Your film is creatively edited to a song that best fits you as a couple and reflects the feel of the wedding day. It’s super fun to watch over and over again and share with family and friends online and mobile devices. You can see samples of these in our portfolio and view over 50 of them on our Vimeo page.

Wedding Film
Wedding Film usually ranges between 20-90 minutes, depending on events of your wedding day: Prep & Portraits, Ceremony, Reception

Using the very latest 4K cameras (Sony A7S2, Sony A6500, Dji Mavic Air) along with our experience in wedding cinematography. My cameras are small so we do not draw a lot of attention. I don’t use big lights when filming your day. My cameras and lenses allow us to capture footage in low light situations. I also use professional audio equipment to record audio from your ceremony and reception main events.

 

Even in post processing, I look for a particular aesthetic. Although I meet the highest standards, I don’t try to correct the little defects (noise, lighting). These are even exaggerated because that’s how they become honest and true to themselves.

A hot meal would be greatly appreciated. I’m often with you for 10/16 hours non stop and during the course of a day it isn’t possible or practical to leave the venue to eat.

Your final film edits will be supplied by way of a secure online download facility. We simply upload your film files to our online facility and supply you with private login details to enable you to both view them online and download the films locally in high definition, which can be saved on a USB stick, held on a hard drive or written to a disc. The online facility can also be shared with your friends and family to allow them to view the films wherever they are located.

 

Your trailer is a public video for you to share with the world, post it where ever you want to and everyone can share it and love it. There are no hidden fees, once you have paid your final balance the film is yours, what you do with it is your choice. Anyone and everyone can watch it and download it in its full quality for free. We do this because we hate the idea of ripping off your friends and family to buy a copy, they can all have a copy of both for free.

For a 1-3 months turnaround, depending upon time of year and work load. I don’t rush the editing as I want to get the best out the footage. The films are then uploaded to a secure client area you can access online by way of a unique link to view and download them.

It really depends on package you select, for example a package with 1 cameraman will come with 2 crew members, which are 1 cameraman and 1 assistant.

I’m videographer, not photographer; a lot of people see our kit and think we can do both, but we are simply too busy filming to take photos as well.

First of all reasonable and tailored to your personal request. I put a lot of my own emotions and heart to all my wedding films. Money is not my first priority, but of course you have to keep in mind that this is seasonal work and I only do this in my life. My packages current start at 850€.

Congrats on making your decision! Next you need to check my availability. You can email me on info@matejsalat.com or you can fill out the form on the CONTACT page. The first steps: we get to know each other a bit, I confirm my availability, you can reserve your wedding date with me. Now here’s the boring part: you sign an agreement, put down a payment of 30 percent of the total cost and you pay 70 percent -here’s the fun part- after you get your Story.
