If you’ve never hired a videographer before, you might not know what to look for (or avoid).  

As you compare videographers and familiarize yourself with the world of videography, here are a few things from our 20+ years of experience that we think are important to consider…



Coastline Studios is the only videographer in Michigan that includes 3 or more camera operators on 80% of its 6 packages.

Having more operators results in better storytelling, more complete coverage & unmatched creative opportunities that can’t be found in 1-person, or sometimes even 2-person crews.


  • Avoid “1-operator coverage” packages.  One person is simply unable to professionally and adequately capture the most important day of your life by themself at a level of quality that your wedding day deserves.
  • Avoid packages that look appealing by adding multiple “unmanned” cameras. Having several cameras without operators is NOT going to yield a quality end product. Without an actual person running all or most of the cameras, you cannot ensure they won’t get blocked by photographers, guests, or others, and with no one there to pan, zoom, and reframe quickly, the video will quickly become boring and static.


Experience matters

Since 2003, we’ve filmed weddings of every budget and size… from 7-figure celebrity weddings to intimate backyard ceremonies… all around the world. As a result, we’ve learned how to adapt, be flexible, and work seamlessly and discreetly to minimize visibility on your wedding day and ensure we are working as a team with the other vendors you’ve hired. Simply put…

This day is too important to hire someone with minimal experience.

Coastline Studios has…

  • Over 20+ years of experience filming weddings.
  • Over 800 weddings filmed, edited, and delivered.
  • Filmed weddings all over the world including Italy, Brazil, and several US states including Hawaii, California, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Connecticut, West Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.



To achieve 20+ years of being in business, we put in the work building and maintaining a high standard of service, and a reputation of professionalism that has earned the trust of our couples and the wedding industry professionals that we work alongside.

  • Over 80% of our bookings are from “word of mouth” referrals.
  • Over 65 5-star reviews on “The Knot” and “Wedding Wire”. 
  • Trusted and recommended by several notable high-end event planners, photographers, and industry professionals to film weddings, parties, and birthday celebrations alongside them.



Beyond just filming your wedding, we place a high value on telling your unique story so your future kids and grandkids will get to know you and the story that led to this pivotal day in your life story.

  • In our “Cinematic Packages,” we conduct a short interview of each partner on the wedding day about how you met and masterfully weave your story into your wedding film in a creative and engaging way. (participation is optional).
  • Our films carefully balance your interviews (when available) vows, toasts, readings, and sermons to craft a wedding film that goes beyond just a musical montage.
  • We take pride in putting a level of polish in the editing process that is unmatched among our peers. From utilizing the latest software, plugins, and editing tools, to spending countless hours stabilizing shots, balancing audio, and color-correcting, we ensure every frame in your video is polished to perfection.

Packages start at $2900 …

… simplified into three payments of $966
