I prefer to film things as they occur naturally. I won't try to direct or set up shots.
I want to capture your story in an organic way that is true and authentic. I film your day discreetly which allows for those un-posed natural moments to occur without people noticing I was there. From the bridal preparations, to that all-important kiss, I want to ensure that you can relive your special day over and over again.
I feel this gives the film real emotion and this is what reflects the real people that I film. As everybody is unique, no two films will be the same.
What equipment do you use?
I use high quality cameras to capture the best possible quality footage for your film. With a variety of lenses to capture the various elements of your day.
My approach to equipment is a light and minimal set up in order to not be a distraction. This lets me capture all of those important moments as they happen.
I regularly invest in new equipment to make sure that I have different options to help the creative process and provide a film that suits your requirements.
What music and audio would you use in a wedding film?
Music and audio play a huge role in videography. The right music can make or break a video and poorly captured sound can leave the viewer with half of an experience.
Music also helps set the pace and build emotion. I only use Licensed Music in my videos which means you will be able to share your films on all social media platforms without the risk of it being removed or taken down. I believe that good quality music should support your video and so I use multiple tracks to convey different elements of your day mixed together to enhance your viewing experience.
To capture great audio and sound I use high quality lavalier microphones alongside, digital recorders and camera mounted microphones to make sure that I get clean ,crisp audio in a discrete way.
What happens after the wedding? What does editing look like?
Editing and post production is an important part of the film making process. In post production I carefully craft together the footage captured from the day into what becomes your cinematic film. Editing can be a time consuming process but spending time colour grading, selecting the right music and shot selection ensures the best visual and audio experience for the viewer.
I want your film to stand the test of time and so I use minimal special effects which I believe can cheapen the footage and instead I work on telling the right story.
This, I ultimately believe leads to a more captivating viewing experience.
