If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is a motion picture worth? A wedding day video is one of life’s priceless possessions and we think it’s a must-have companion for the wedding picture album. Trust all your pictures – even the motion pictures – to a video storyteller.
The modern-day wedding video is a stylish, love-song music video featuring the Bride and Groom in the starring roles. This is your once-in-a-lifetime dream day and you deserve a beautifully arranged video.
Pre-Wedding Love Story
Tell your own unique Love Story with a 5-10 minute long video. Our professional videos include interviews with your unique story: how you met, fell in love, got engaged, and your hopes and dreams for the future.
Our main goal as event cinematographers is to satisfy our customers. The best way to do that is to make sure the story of the couple is being told. Early on, even before signing the contract, we need to “survey” or research our subjects and determine what their story is. I usually take the time, before getting down to the nitty-gritty, to get to know the couple. For instance, find out how they met, what kind of wedding they envision, and what they love.
I’ll often speak to the couple’s family and friends as well. You’d be surprised how much insider information you can get from a five-minute conversation with the grooms best friend.
Mic your subjects
You can always spot the amateur amongst the pros by the way the audio sounds. In the wedding business, you only get one shot to capture that perfect moment. Having good, clean sound not only makes you stand out among your competitors but it can save you in post as well. Good audio can carry cuts and b-roll and help support your main goal, telling a good story.
Show Some Charactor
Well, character is about depth, desire, and intention. Truly developing a character involves imparting their personality on the audience. When you’re done, you should get a sense of who these people truly are.
But the reality is, most couples are simply interchangeable. That means that you could swap in a different couple with the same venue, attire, and details and you’d end up with the same wedding film.
The people, and who they are uniquely, have done little to influence the content being created.
