Frequently asked questions

What is the process of booking a shoot?

Give Christopher Helkey a call, text, or email to schedule a date. 805.708.6807 or . You will then be sent a contract that once signed will lock in your date. Keep in mind I stay very busy so the sooner in advance you book the better.

How long will it take till I get my video?

The editing of the video is quick and takes approximately 3 business days.

How long does a standard video shoot usually take?

3 - 4 hours depending on the home.

What music do you use?

I license my music through which is included in the video package. If you want a more popular song you can look through and purchase a license to the song.

What if I need to cancel a shoot?

No problem but you must cancel at least 48 hours in advance. If you cancel after that timeframe a $300 cancellation fee will be billed. There is a high demand for my services and last minute cancellations hurt my business.

How do I pay?
