photo + film packages

Do you offer rehearsal dinner coverage or other pre-wedding videography?

Yes, we offer rehearsal dinner coverage as an add-on to our wedding videography packages.  These sessions allow us to get to know you better and to create beautiful footage that will showcase your unique love story. 

Can we request specific shots or moments be captured? 

Yes, we welcome your input and ideas.  We will work with you to create a shot list and to ensure that all of your desired shots and moments are captured.  

Do you travel? If so, what is the travel fee?

We typically only travel within a few hours of Raleigh. We are open to travel but handle travel pricing on a case by case scenario.  

Where can I buy wedding insurance?

WedSafe. A WedSafe policy will protect you if you need to cancel your wedding for severe weather, sudden illness, lost/non-refundable deposits, vendor bankruptcy and more. 

Will you be the only videographer at our wedding?

As the owner and lead videographer of Thomas Blake Films, I am committed to capturing the essence of your day. However, depending on the package and availability, I may be accompanied by a skilled team of videographers who uphold the same high standards and artistic vision.

What if you get sick on our wedding day?

It has never happened, and I would have to be in the hospital to not shoot a wedding, but if it did happen I would have another professional videographer shoot in my place. I have connections with several amazingly talented videographers.  

If we select the photo + video package will we have a contract with Thomas Blake Films as well?

Because of COVID-19, we are no longer creating joint contracts.  While our teams will be working seamlessly together, you will be signing a contract with both Thomas Blake Films related to videography and also Pamela Jahnke Photography related to photography.  

Do you backup your footage?  

Yes. After the wedding we upload your memory cards to an external hard drive.

What is your style?

Our approach is rooted in authenticity. We understand that the most powerful and cherished moments are those that are natural and unscripted. With a blend of unobtrusive documentary-style coverage and carefully curated artistic shots, we strive to capture the genuine emotions, laughter, and tears that make your wedding uniquely yours.

What is your booking process?

We recommend scheduling a consultation with us to discuss your specific videography needs and to get to know us better.  Once we have a clear understanding of your vision and requirements, we will provide you with a detailed quote and contract.  A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to secure your wedding date. 

How long are the films?

You can expect about an hour of video if you choose the photo + video highlight package. This package includes a 4-5 minute highlight film, full ceremony, dances, and toasts. We also offer a photo + video feature film package that includes an 8-10 minute feature film. *Longer films are available upon request.

How are the films delivered?

We will provide you with a digital link to download your final edited film.  

Are films HD? 


How long will it take to receive my film after my wedding?

We pride ourselves on delivering your film in a
timely manner. We officially quote 90 days, but it is often much sooner depending on the time of year.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Canon C70s, a variety of high-quality prime and zoom lenses, tripods, drone, gimbal, and more.  

Do you offer aerial footage via drone?

Yes, we are pleased to offer drone coverage as part of our wedding videography services. Our skilled drone operators are experienced in capturing stunning aerial footage that adds a unique perspective to your wedding video. Drone coverage can beautifully showcase your venue, capture sweeping landscape shots, and provide breathtaking cinematic moments. Please note that drone services are subject to location regulations, weather conditions, and venue permissions. We will work closely with you and the necessary parties to ensure a safe and spectacular aerial experience for your wedding video.

How is the music for the film selected? 

We understand that music plays a significant role in setting the mood and capturing the emotions of your wedding day. We welcome your input and offer the option for you to provide a selection of preferred songs or genres for your wedding video. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that the chosen music complements the overall narrative and enhances the viewing experience. We also have access to a vast library of licensed music, which allows us to find the perfect soundtrack that aligns with your vision and the style of your wedding.

Sarah Sterner, bride

"Pamela and her team were the most perfect thing about our wedding. From the moment I met her during my bridal portraits, I knew that she would care of every single detail at the wedding and felt so relieved. I have a lot of self confidence issues with certain parts of my body, and Pam was so sweet to ask me ahead of time to figure what I like and don’t like. She was extremely cautious of the poses and how the pictures were taken to ensure I loved myself in the end product. And don’t get me started on how sweet she is. Every single person at our wedding fell in love with her. She was with me from the beginning to the end. I would 100% recommend her to any other bride. She just makes you look/feel like the most perfect bride in the world."

Kylie Flanagan, bride

"Pamela was the nicest, sweetest, most professional, comforting and best photographer we could have ever asked for for our engagement shoots and wedding. The way she captured special moments between my groom and I was better than I could have hoped. She came early, was prepared, kept up with a timeline (making the day flow so easy) and was by our sides the whole night (never missing a shot). From the start of the day to the end of the night she was not only a pleasure to be around - but really took the time to capture the happiness and love we both felt. I did not think it was possible to cry anymore after the wedding - until we got our wedding pictures back! We cannot thank Pamela enough for being our wedding photographer, and we cant wait to use her again for more of our lives stepping stones. We highly recommend her!"

Lauren Hartnett, bride

"Pamela was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Photography was really important to us because it’s one of the few tangible things you walk away with after your special day. We chose Pam for her natural yet realistic style in photos. She keeps the beauty of the shot while not making it look too photoshopped/styled. After we hired Pam for our wedding, we did a trial run with some fall family photos to also double as engagement photos. We immediately knew she would do an awesome job at the wedding as she was so calm and easygoing. On our wedding day, she got all of the shots we wanted and I never had to worry. We got so many compliments from our guests that they rarely saw her yet she was always there to capture the best moments. We absolutely love all of our wedding photos and would definitely recommended her to anyone getting married!"

Noor Ahmed, bride

"I am absolutely obsessed with these photos! I can’t explain to you how much I love every single one of them! I am beyond grateful that you guys were able to capture this day for me. Your work is absolutely beautiful. Before contacting/booking you, I looked at so many other photographers work but truly no one compares to your work. I knew from the get go I wanted you to capture the day, and those pictures prove that I’ve made the best decision ever! It was awesome working with you on Saturday. You really brought the vision I had in my head to life, so I can’t thank you enough! I think people are getting sick of me because I talk and show the photos to everyone I know!"

Alexandra Mercel, bride

"Pam, I just want you to know how incredible we think these pictures are. I know I said it yesterday but my family and friends have been calling me non stop with "I've never seen pictures so beautiful" and "she captured everything about the day more perfectly than we could have imagined." So I just wanted to echo all this and say thank you once again. It is all so so so beautiful, I am literally speechless. You are so talented and we feel so lucky to have found you!"
