WEDDING FILMS

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I filmed my first wedding in 2011 and have since filmed more than 50. I specialize in a cinematic style that feels like an atmospheric documentary movie. I get very close to the action and emotion. I use camera movement to add depth and focus on telling your story as creatively unique to you as I can. There won't be any wasted space or long, boring clips. This won't be like your friend's smartphone video or your classic camcorder home video. The film will be well-paced a take a classic story arc. I take my time, plan my shots, and use only the best shots.

I want to tell your story in a beautiful artistic montage set to gorgeous high-quality music and your captured dialogue (vows, officiant, first look, etc).

If that is what you're looking for, then you've come to the right place!

THE DETAILS

I can produce any kind of film you'd like! I have some basic packages, but if you're looking for something a little different don't hesitate to ask. I am more than willing to change what I do to accommodate your desires. I am also more than willing to work with your budget to find the best solution for you. Typically, I produce cinematic highlight-reel and mini-documentary style wedding films. I have little microphones that I like to hide on the bride (if practical), groom, and officiant in order to capture the best audio quality. I also like to stick with the bride & groom as much as possible throughout the day so I can get as much footage as I can.

Because wedding filmmaking is not my regular full-time job, it will most likely take me 3-4 months to edit everything together after the wedding day. I know that it might feel like a long time to wait, but I promise you I will put hours and hours of care and polish into the finished film. I always deliver a "teaser" trailer on social media within a few weeks to help with the waiting process.

THE PROCESS

I love to meet my clients in person before the big day, whether that is locally in Redding or over FaceTime. I like to get to know you and get a sense for your story together so I can know how to capture it on the wedding day. Wedding days fly by FAST, so I like to do most of my thinking and question-asking before the day begins.

Please check out my portfolio below. This will give you a great idea of the kind of filmmaker I am. It will also give you an opportunity to request a different style or look which, of course, I am more than willing to accomodate if I can.

THE GEAR

For those interested, I shoot primarily with 4k mirrorless cameras, a drone, various tripods, and a steadicam. I also have lavalier and shotgun microphone systems that I use to capture professional audio. If the project demands higher-quality gear, I rent it. 

I edit using Adobe Premiere CC, After Effects CC, and Audition.

CONTACT

I would love to connect over the phone or at a coffee shop (if you're in Redding, CA) and share more. I would love to chat more about my services, filmmaking, and help you find the right package or service that's right for you, even if I refer you to someone else!
