You are not pixels on a screen
Endlessly researching other videographers wondering: what should I be looking for?
It all starts with creating a remarkable experience with you.
You see, in today’s day and age anyone can pick up a camera, point it at someone, shoot a few (or many) weddings and then call themselves a filmmaker. But when you stop to look at the portfolio and look past all the flowery marketing language, what do you see and hear in the work? Magic? Something… wow? Or is it “meh” and same-same?
If you’re not happy, inspired and comfortable at your wedding and with your vendors, that’s what the film outcome will be too: “meh”.
With our experience both in narrative and documentary filmmaking, as well as in our 15 years of creating wedding films, we know that a powerful film starts with nurturing a remarkable feel on set or event. A vendor’s presence at your event — however tangential — makes a difference in the feel of your day and then in the wedding film you watch later.
When it’s fly-on-the-wall-time to capture what your event gives, we are barely noticeable. In the brief moments when we create a bit of directed movement and drama (like during your golden hour romantic session), we have fun together. We enjoy and play in nature as the light dances and delights on your faces and in your love.
You may not be a seasoned professional actor, naturally born for the camera, but together we will have fun and sure as heck get you feeling like you belong right there in that remarkable moment in time.
