Your personal film
A personal film is a long term investment into a vision of your legacy. As you creep towards your twilight years you will look back with fond memories of your personalities, your facial expressions, your body language, even your voice will seem so different, With attention to your personalities, you will be glad you had a more personal film made.
Your Comfort with minimal fuss
My films are completely unobtrusive. I use minimal equipment, no huge shoulder cameras with cables and massive tripods stomping over you. Just small cameras appearing once in a while. I want the experience of your wedding to be no different to your guests filming you walking down the isle with their cameras.
Your unique Art direction
I can assure you that the quality, personalisation and emotion will be there for every wedding that I do. Your wedding will benefit from unique storytelling, interesting compositions, and the use of light. Your film will be methodically directed, with minimal intervention.
Relaxed + ready
Due to my personalised storytelling style, I only shoot up to 25 films per year. My approach to your day is very hands off as I stay out of sight during the relaxed moments and i’m not scared to get in the middle of the party during the fun moments. The biggest attribute I bring with my storytelling style is a much higher level of personalisation and being able to be relaxed around your guests without interfering. I am more understanding of your peoples needs and boundaries and I work flexibly around your day. It’s just much more comfortable and nicer for you over 8-10 hour period.
THERE ARE 2 APPROACHES TO WEDDINGS - VIDEO MEDIA OR CINEMATIC FILM
I have worked with dozens of videographers and I know the industry so well, I can safely say there are 2 approaches. Cared for cinematic film or high volume video, or as I like to call it, Gordon Ramsey vs McDonalds.
The video approach: 25-90 videos a year.
90% of wedding videos on the market are created with an assembly line approach, and are generally supported by paying the venues per recommendation. Key words like 'film' and 'graded' and ‘storytelling’ are used but your video ends up being a rushed copy of another brides wedding. This systematic way of making your video is a very hands-on and an awkward experience for guests on your day.
The film approach: 15-25 films a year.
10% of the market are artists like myself who prioritise the art and the storytelling. My level of personalisation and being able to be relaxed around your guests without interfering, is more in-tune with your wedding. I am more understanding of your peoples needs and boundaries and I work flexibly around your day. It’s just much more comfortable and nicer for you over 8-10 hour period. I design the narrative of your story from scratch and grade your films which actually anywhere between 1-3 months to produce. I would definitely recommend a cinematographer who limits their amount of weddings to prioritise the quality of service.
recommend the best
Being a wedding cinematographer, is like being a Hollywood film director but in a real world event, there is so much I storytelling to do. I know many cinematographers and photographers throughout the world who share this same passion and dedication for storytelling. Wherever your wedding is in the world, if I am unavailable, I can point you in the right direction.
