1. Ninja Skills
I want to respect the environment of a Wedding for the couple and their guests, so I use a discreet and unobtrusive filming style. I use small, and silent camera’s similar to what a photographer uses, no great big over the shoulder camera’s or tripod’s that some Videographer’s lug around and get right in your face! I blend into the background, looking for natural moments, and discreetly record them as they happen.
This way the focus can remain on the important things... creating a lasting legacy of memories of the couple’s day.
I get to know my couples well. I will arrange to meet my couple on several occasions. Starting with consultations and keeping in regular contact throughout.
I want to know as much about the couple as possible. What makes their perfect Wedding Film. What they want to see and what they don't want to see.
I want to know everything, not just how they met, but what makes them tick, what makes them laugh, cry, smile, it’s these kind of emotions and details that I want to show in my Wedding Films.
3. Attention to Detail
I take the time to make my Wedding Films perfect. Each film takes many, many hours of hard work and meticulous editing, colour grading, and sound mastering.
It is a lengthy process, but when I hear that one of my couples have re-lived their story for the very first time, I know every ounce of effort and every second invested has been more than worth it.
I typically complete each Wedding Film within 8 weeks from the date of filming.
4. Party! Party! Party!
I love Weddings.
It is one thing to love what I do, and to make people happy and able to relive their wedding over and over for eternity, but I also love a good wedding. At a Wedding, I am not just a Videographer, I am a also a guest. I am not just going to be a bore, stood in the corner of the room all day and night!
A Wedding is a celebration, and I am always honoured to be a part of them. I often stay until last orders at the very end of the wedding and mingle with the other guests with a beer when I have finished filming.
Warning – Be prepared for some serious dad dancing around 11:00PM!!
