The word LOISTE [lɔɪste] is Finnish and it means shine, luster, sheen, brilliancy. We chose this word because light, both visible and the light of emotions, are the most important elements of our films.
We make wedding films for those who want something different. For those who love to walk their own path, exploring and enjoying the world. For those that have big dreams and extraordinary stories. These are the kind of stories that capture and touch the viewer...

INFO & PRICING FAQ
WHAT'S A TYPICAL WEDDING DAY FILM SHOOT LIKE?
We make our films as a two (2) person team. This makes it possible for one of us to focus on the wedding couple and the other videographer can focus on details, additional angles, reactions or drone shots. We follow the couple during the whole wedding day and we document the day as it unfolds. Sound and music is a central part of our wedding films, therefore we capture both sound and speeches with various microphones and recorders. We also have professional DJI Inspire 2 and Mavic drones that we use for beautiful aerial shots. Note: Aerial shots can not always be guaranteed. Drones are used according to country regulations and possible rainy weather might be a restricting factor too. Ask us for more information about drone rules and regulations for your country.
DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Yes. Absolutely. Anytime. Almost anywhere. We love traveling. In 2018 we already have bookings for Thailand, Italy, France, Croatia, Norway and Lapland.
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR A WEDDING FILM?
We only do a full day wedding coverage. Our package price is 3500€, which includes a 4-7 minute cinematic highlight film plus a 30-60 second long trailer for Instagram / Facebook. With all the post production and editing there will be approximately 45-60 hours of work behind each wedding film. For weddings that last several days, destination weddings, elopements or other special requests eg. a longer documentary video with the whole ceremony and speeches included, please contact us via email for a quote. Shooting solo with only one videographer might also be possible for certain weddings, please ask for more information.
CAN YOU DO A SAME DAY EDIT?
Yes. And we love making a same-day-edit wedding highlight film that is showed on the wedding day at the reception. A same day edit will though require a third person in our team. The price depends a lot of the wedding. Prices start at 900€. Feel free to ask for a quote.
CAN WE CHOOSE THE MUSIC FOR OUR FILM?
Not likely. It's not possible to choose your favourite tunes due to copyright laws. We will choose and purchase licensed music from various professional music sites that give your film the right ambiance. This is included in the package. Music scoring and sound design is a process that we really love and we want to keep the creative rights for our Loiste sound designer to choose the music. We will ask you what music you like so we have a guide line and a sense of your music taste.
HOW DO WE BOOK?
Your booking requires a 20% booking fee (700€) and signing our wedding video contract. The remaing payment (2800€) is due 14 days prior to your wedding. Our travel expences and accommodation is added to the total fee. Ask for more details.
WHEN DO YOU DELIVER OUR WEDDING FILM?
We are quite fast. About 2-3 weeks after the wedding we will deliver your film as digital downloadable files. In case of the file size being too large or other download issues, we will send you a physical copy on a USB-drive via mail.
CAN YOU TAKE PORTRAITS AND PHOTOS TOO?
We only shoot video and we can not do both photography and videography at the same time. Shooting video is very work intensive and needs all our focus. We will be more than happy to recommend a few talented professional photographers for the job.
