wedding videography

As a bride you're going to invest a lot into your wedding, both time and money. You've searched the world over for the perfect dress, the freshest flowers, and the breathtaking venue. You've spent months, even years dreaming about this day. Each wedding is unique and unfortunately, it goes by in a blur. With all of the hustle and bustle of their special day, brides and grooms rarely get to see the fruits of their labor- the flower girl primping in the mirror, guests settling into their seats, a shy bridesmaid before her toast.

you're in good hands

ready for the big day?

that's where
we come in

We want you to be able to relive the nervous laughter, the quiet vows and fumbling hands when your kids can't imagine what you and dad looked like, much less acted and sounded like back in your day. Investing in your wedding video means you get to cherish, remember, and relive one of the happiest moments of your life. We take our time getting to know you, your venue, and your vision so we can tell a visual story unique to you.

We put great effort in this part of the process because we believe the better we know you, the more extraordinary your video will be. In order to create this special working relationship, we will only be accepting 20 wedding commissions each year. This allows us to give the time and attention to each couple that is needed to find what makes them special. That process begins here! Watch our videos, get to know us and say hello!

How involved do I need to be?

01

It’s entirely up to you! Some couples don't need a ton of correspondence and others want to check in every few months. Some are very hands-on and know what music they want in their film and others give us complete creative freedom. We usually chat about this in our initial meeting, but either way we'll make sure you're completely comfortable throughout the whole process.

When should I book?

02

We accept bookings up to 14 months out.

why do your packages only offer 8 hours?

03

We've found that anything less than eight hours isn’t really enough to capture your entire day. It's full coverage and builds your story. It's all about creating a way to re-live your entire day year after year. Starting with you getting ready, and ending with you getting in the exit car. Three months from now when you get your video, its going to be amazing, but twenty years from now when you look at your video it's going to be absolutely priceless. It's the difference between seeing a photo of your grandparents on their wedding day and actually seeing them move and talk and interact. It becomes a piece of your family’s history.

will you travel?

04

Absolutely! We're 100% ready to pack our bags and go where you go.

what does the process look like?

05

1- Inquire about your date by filling out our form
2- Schedule a call or a face-to-face. We'll answer any questions, get to know each other, and learn about what is important to you and your wedding film.
3. Reserve your date —- a 33% deposit reserves your spot in my calendar. Payable by check or PayPal.
4- Pre-meeting during the month of your wedding to hash out the final timeline,
5- Wedding day. We show up ready to document your day, correspond with your wedding planner, you won't even know we're there .
6- Sit back and enjoy married life while we put together your film and deliver it.
