EXPERIENCE: Matters. One of the biggest advantages of using All Because He Asked is our experience. We’ve shot over 400 weddings in 13 years from all over the world and have been live streaming for 9 years! That’s longer than most companies have been in business! Due to the onset of Covid-19, I’m sure there will be many videographers popping up offering live stream. And I don’t doubt that some of them will do it well. But if you care about experience, well there’s no comparison. We’ve won the “Best of The Knot” award for Videographers in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Orange County and San Diego for 8 straight years and are a member of The Knot “Hall of Fame” and if you Google anything related to Live Streaming Weddings in Southern California, you’ll see our names right at the top of every listing. See THIS POST for more on why experience matters when it comes to live streaming.

Remote Locations & Licensed Music!! Did you know that most companies that live stream might not be able to live stream the music in your Ceremony? Why? Because they use YouTube or Facebook's free service to stream live, but those sites might MUTE or SHUT DOWN the stream the moment it detects licensed music. But not with us. We have the option of using a paid service that allows us to stream it all without issue. As for location...how many other companies travel out to each and every venue BEFORE the Wedding Day and run extensive tests just to make sure everything will run smoothly? Well that's exactly what we do. Why leave your Wedding up to "chance". Getting married on a beach or outdoor setting? Or a church with thick walls? Chances are the wifi either doesn't exist or won't reach. So maybe you think “I can use my hotspot on my phone” right? Well, what happens if your phone doesn’t get great coverage there, or it’s “spotty” at the wrong time? Our top of the line Live Streaming gear incorporates Network Bonding Technology to combine the bandwidth from several sources to create one big pipeline to ensure we can live stream at a quality that makes you guys look and sound good. Our package includes travel to venues within 50 miles of us (we're based in Seal Beach, CA). Is your venue further away, or even out of state? No problem! We've traveled all over for our weddings! See ** below for more info on how we make that all work.

GUEST EXPERIENCE: I’d imagine that matters a lot to you. Imagine your live stream begins with an epic aerial shot of your location, seamlessly transitioning to the music of your Processional as you and your family and friends walk down the aisle. I think your guests will appreciate the extra attention to detail we provide. You might have had plans for whoever is watching to be there with you guys live. It’s likely really difficult to accept that they can’t be there with you. The savings of not having them there doesn’t come close to the joy that actually having them there would bring. But circumstances make it impossible. So at the very least you want them to be engaged and see and hear your Ceremony loud and clear so they can feel like they were truly a part of it. That’s our job. With our options below we’ve got you covered.

RELIABILITY: Peace of mind knowing that everything will go as planned. Weddings can be unpredictable sometimes. But when it comes to live streaming, we plan for everything so that there are no surprises. How many other companies will go to your venue and run a live test ahead of time? We do! It's all part of the package. We run extensive tests at the venue to ensure your stream will look AND sound great. As the owner of the company, I personally haven’t missed a single wedding in 13 years of filming weddings. And I’m not about to now. We’re not going to send a random group of people to your intimate wedding. From start to finish, everything we do is personal.

QUALITY: Because it should look AND sound good. Sure you could use a webcam or a cell phone, but I’d feel bad for your guests. See THIS POST for more on that topic! But I don’t think you would be looking into this if you didn’t think that the quality we provide would be so much better for your guests watching remotely. The cameras we use are top of the line cinematic, full frame cameras and the sound your guests will hear while watching live is all professionally captured using multiple wireless mics. We're equipped to handle any size wedding from an intimate gathering to a large scale wedding with musicians, etc. We give your guests multiple views of your Ceremony capturing close up shots of you guys makes a HUGE difference when it comes to how enjoyable a live stream is to watch.

Live Stream Packages
starting at only $1450*

Includes all of the following:

The All Because He Asked Team – Experience Matters. You’re getting a team with 13 years of Award Winning Wedding Videography experience creating over 400 wedding films and 9 years of wedding live stream experience.

Full Frame Camera(s) – The same Cinematic, Top of the Line Cameras we use to shoot all our Weddings. We zoom in close to keep your guests engaged as if they were in the front row. This package includes one camera but if you want more than one camera, no problem! We offer up to 3 cinematic cameras for each live stream. See our add-ons below.

Your Ceremony Streamed in HD to UNLIMITED Guests – From Processional to Recessional. Up to 90 minutes of live coverage (of your Ceremony only) to an UNLIMITED number of guests anywhere in the world. Need additional coverage? No problem! See our "Add-Ons" below!

Pre-Event Day Testing at the Venue in Person – While most companies will "assume" they can live stream from virtually anywhere, we travel** out to your Wedding Venue prior to your Wedding Day and do extensive testing in person to make sure we can. Why leave your big day up to "chance"?

Network Bonding Technology – allowing us to maximize the internet speed at almost any venue by combining multiple wifi signals, cellular hotspots, or hard wire connections in order to push out a high quality video and audio stream. Even if your venue has no internet or wifi, chances are our gear can still make it happen.

No Ads! – Imagine the couple leans in for the big first kiss and...a car commercial. Yeah, no thank you. While most other companies use a free service that requires ads, we don't. Our package includes ad-free viewing for your guests.

No Issues with Licensed Music! – Couples don’t often think about this, but licensed music is often a big part of the processional and recessional and the moment YT or FB recognizes a published song in a live stream, that live stream can sometimes be muted or shut down by those platforms, depending on the song or artist's restrictions. So we test everything and if there's issues, then our package includes the option to use a paid service so you can use whatever music you envisioned. IF you don’t have music or would rather stream to those sites, no problem! Either way, we'll make it work!

Crystal Clear Audio – Whether your Ceremony is amplified or not, we got you covered. We have multiple wireless mics to capture everything loud and clear.

Adaptive Bitrate Streaming – Not everyone watching will have the same internet speed right? Our service provides adaptive bitrate streaming to allow those with mediocre speeds to still watch at a reduced quality while those with a strong signal can watch in crystal clear HD.

Dedicated Web Page – we provide a dedicated web page for just your live stream giving your viewers easy access to the live stream.

Guest Backup – Let’s say your guests have internet trouble from wherever they’re at, or they missed your wedding entirely. Not to worry. We record every live stream so we can post it online immediately following the conclusion of your Ceremony, so your guests can watch it all over again and not miss a thing.

Digital Copy of Your Ceremony (RE-CUT!) – After your Wedding is complete, instead of just giving you a copy of the live stream, we take the original raw footage from our cameras home and completely re-edit your entire Ceremony and do a complete re-mix of the sound as well so everything is JUST RIGHT. We then export this new Digital Master copy of your FULL Ceremony and send it to you to keep forever.

“Optional” Features Included at No Extra:

Countdown Clock until the event goes live.

You create a slideshow (video or photo) and we’ll use it as a Pre-Roll or Post-Roll to the Live Event.

Post Ceremony Thank You! – If you want, we can pull you guys together at the very end to say hi to all those watching.

 

Add-Ons:

Additional Cameras: $400/camera – Using both wired and wireless transmission with zero delay, adding a second or third camera to your live stream only adds to the production value that your guests will enjoy. Want to see the bride come down the aisle AND the groom’s reaction? Add a second camera and we got you covered. Want to see the close ups of each of your faces during your vows? Add a second or third camera. While one camera is all you NEED, having a second or third camera truly makes the “Guest Experience” that much better.

Drone Intro: $150 – Part of what you are providing your guests is the “experience” they’d have as if they were there. While nothing can replace actually being there in person, allowing your guests to take in the beauty of the venue from the sky with an epic intro to your live stream gets you one step closer to that feeling like they were there in person. We can also use this as an outro at the end of the live stream to remind people of just how beautiful your Ceremony location was.

Additional Live Coverage: $300/hour (post-ceremony) – Our basic package covers your Ceremony from the Processional to Recessional. But let’s say you want to branch off and cover a bit more. You absolutely can. Talk to us about what you want covered and we’ll discuss ways to cover it live.

Interactive Setup: $350 – Want to see your guests watching from home, or even interact with a VIP guest that cannot attend during your Ceremony? We got you covered! And no, we don't just put your laptop on a chair. That would be sad. See our FAQ's below and contact us for more!

Amplified Audio Mic/Speaker Setup: $350-$450 – We've had several couples ask us for this so we figured we'd add it to our options. Need a one speaker ($350) or two speaker ($450) setup for your just your Ceremony so your guests in attendance can hear everything loud and clear? We can handle that. If you're planning a Reception or a full dance party with an MC/DJ, etc. then you're probably better off hiring an actual DJ company like VOX DJ's. But if you need a great sounding audio set up (DJ Speakers + Mixer + Microphone) for just your Ceremony and someone to play your processional and recessional music for you that'll sound great...we can make that happen! $100/hr rate beyond the Ceremony for this setup.

Photography: $400/hr (2 hour minimum) – Believe it or not, we are actually a Husband/Wife Video+Photo team! See our FAQ's below for more on this! Visit this WEBSITE to see TONS of examples of our photography style/work!

Post-Production: Contact Us for rates – You may want additional coverage of you two and/or the venue and your guests as part of a larger and more cinematic, fully edited video. Our site is filled with examples of our work. Contact us for ideas and rates on how to create more than just a live stream for your guests, but also an incredible keepsake for you to remember your wedding forever. See our FAQ's below for more on this.

Live Stream FAQ
Do you guys travel outside of Southern California?
YES! While the vast majority of our weddings are in beautiful Southern California, we've filmed and also live streamed events all over the country. From professional athletes and coaches from the NFL, NBA and US Olympics to those in all areas of the Entertainment Industry, we've covered weddings of all sizes. Over 13 years, we've traveled to Napa, NYC, Seattle, Wyoming, Texas, Connecticut, Alabama, Long Island, Massachusetts, Hawaii, the US Virgin Islands and more! We've been all over the map for our Weddings! You get us there and we'll take care of the rest! :)
Why are there other videographers that offer live streaming for less?
There will always be those that offer videography or live streaming for less. And some undoubtedly will do it well. We're not trying to compete with them and you absolutely could take a chance with them. What we offer is an unmatched level of experience with both Wedding Videography and Live Streaming. Most Wedding Film companies who now offer live streaming, just started doing so in 2020 because of Covid. We started live streaming weddings way back in 2011, probably before those companies were even in business. If you like their work you should absolutely consider them. But there are MANY reasons why experience matters specifically when it comes to RELIABLY streaming a wedding live (see THIS BLOG POST for more), especially for those venues that are in beautiful locations where internet connectivity might be spotty. We don't leave your live stream up to chance either. We run extensive tests prior to your big day and use the latest Network Bonding technology to make sure your live stream looks AND sounds great from any location. Weddings are intimate and personal. But they're also beautiful and fun. Let us help you give your guests a viewing experience they'll never forget.
Can you fly a drone during our ceremony as one of your cameras?
Yes. We can actually take the live feed from our drone and run that into our switcher as one of your cameras. BUT...we don't recommend it. Yes, it's cool. But honestly, a drone sounds like a pack of angry bees and that level of distraction might not be worth the one or two cool shots you'd get during a quiet, intimate ceremony. So we usually use our drones before the ceremony and incorporate that footage into the opening of your live stream so your guests can see the full scope of your venue's beauty.
What does your dedicated web page look like that our guests will see and when do we get that link?
It looks great. There will be a full screen video at the top (countdown clock available) with a schedule of events below and some pictures of you guys. It's your page, custom built for YOU and YOUR wedding. And we can have that page up and ready for you to share with your guests the week you book with us. Couples are now putting their link on their invitations which is a great idea!
You guys offer PHOTOGRAPHY too?!
Yes!!! We are a Husband and Wife Videography and Photography team with more than 13 years of Wedding Experience. Not only is Danielle (lead photographer) the wife of Jamie (owner of All Because He Asked and lead videographer), but her second shooter is also her identical twin sister! Did that make sense? You may wanna read that back again. :) There's nothing like the ease and fun of shooting alongside those twins! Their rates are just $400/hour per photographer with a 2 hour minimum. That's the perfect solution for the shorter/modified wedding! See the twin's website (HERE) for TONS of examples of their work! NOTE: If you're booking a full/all-day wedding or coverage for more than 4 hours, you'll save a lot by moving up to our full wedding packages that include two photographers and 6, 8, or 10+ hours of coverage (as well as options for engagements shoots)! Contact Us for more!
Can you guys stream to Zoom for more interactivity?
Yes. We are actually able to send our video/audio mix to Zoom IF you'd prefer to use that platform. Zoom is great for that extra level of interactivity since the delay is minimal (about 1/2 second). However, there are a couple trade-offs. Zoom can achieve only about 1/2 the quality/bitrate compared to our traditional live stream which goes through a dedicated CDN like YouTube Live where there might be a delay of several seconds. Additionally, Network Bonding is not possible when we use Zoom. Network bonding is the hardware technology we use to combine multiple internet sources (wifi/ethernet/cellular) into one strong signal so we can stream from remote locations where one internet source alone might not be strong enough. That is why most of our couples opt for a traditional live stream to a dedicated web page. But with us, at least you have the option! There is no additional fee for this however it is subject to acceptable network speeds at your venue.
Can we show or event interact with a guest (parent/grandparent) live during our Ceremony?
So you want the quality of a dedicated live stream, but you also want to be able to interact with a VIP guest that cannot make it as well? We got you covered with our "interactive" add-on above. Provided the venue has sufficient bandwidth, we provide a 40" HDTV on a mobile TV stand placed nearby so you can turn and interact with that special guest at any point in the Ceremony. They'll see you in our high quality HD stream, and you'll see and hear them loud and clear when it's time for them to interact. No squinting at a small computer screen to see/hear them. This interaction be added to your live stream if you'd like so that others watching remotely can witness the exchange live. Contact Us with your ideas and we'll tell you how we can make it happen! That's why our 9 years of live streaming wedding experience matters!
Our ceremony is not amplified. Will our guests be able to hear us?
Absolutely. First and foremost we are a professional Wedding Videography company who has shot over 400 weddings. We have multiple wireless mics and several audio recorders which we can run into our A/V switcher so everything will look and sound great. Even if your Ceremony is NOT amplified, your guests watching at home will be able to hear every word. When it comes to live streaming, clear audio is actually almost more important than the video for keeping your viewers engaged. Need a basic amplified speaker/mic setup? We can cover that too with our new "Amplified Audio Setup" in our add-on section above.
Does you package above cover only the Ceremony or can we stream more?
We can cover anything you'd like. Our base Live Stream Only Package that you see above covers just the Ceremony no matter how short it is, all the way up to 90 mins (contact us if it's longer than that). And yes, we can absolutely stream additional "main events" like a First Dance and/or Toasts afterwards if you'd like. Those rates are also listed above. We work with our couples on how to make that whole process a smooth transition for your guests watching from home.
How much is it if we wanted to get a short Highlight Video of our Live Stream?
We can absolutely make this happen! While the basic Live Stream Only package above includes a Digital Master copy of your Full Ceremony (which we RE-EDIT after the wedding using the original, higher quality, in-camera recordings, some couples want a Highlight Video as well! We have dozens of examples of our Highlight Videos on our SAMPLE HIGHLIGHT VIDEOS page. Those videos you see on that page are all included as part of our larger and more "all-inclusive" full coverage Wedding Videography Packages where we cover everything from getting ready to the end of the night! Contact Us for our traditional Wedding Videography rates. Rates for adding a Highlight Video to a Live Stream Only Package vary depending on how much content we're editing in post, but they typically start at $800 for a short Highlight of just the Ceremony and go up from there depending on how much we're covering. We ask that you let us know PRIOR to the Wedding if this is an option you are thinking of getting. A lot more time goes into editing any additional videos in post compared to the amount of time we spend filming an event, so we charge accordingly. In general, we are able to keep our Live Stream Only packages at a reasonably low price because there is limited post work beyond the "Main Events" that are streamed live.
