How many talented videographers and photographers will be there to capture the magic of your special day?
Our basic packages are designed to cater to a variety of wedding sizes and requirements, offering the flexibility to meet your specific needs. For intimate weddings with up to 60 guests, one videographer or photographer is typically sufficient to capture the essence of your special day. However, for larger weddings, we highly recommend considering the addition of an extra videographer or photographer from our team. This allows us to comprehensively document your wedding day, ensuring that all events and guests are captured from multiple angles, providing a more complete and immersive experience. Our goal is to create a visual narrative that truly encapsulates the depth and beauty of your wedding celebration.
Art has been an integral part of my life from a young age, captivating my passion and fueling my creative spirit. However, it was a pivotal moment during my own wedding that transformed my perspective on videography. Faced with the challenge of finding a videographer who truly resonated with our vision, my partner and I embarked on a journey to redefine wedding cinematography by incorporating techniques typically reserved for cinema. We became pioneers, capturing weddings in the mesmerizing anamorphic cinema format.
This groundbreaking experience ignited a profound love for our craft, infusing every project with a sense of wonder and delight. We take immense joy in crafting breathtaking videos and capturing the essence of the most cherished moments for our clients. Our goal is to create timeless visual narratives that evoke emotions, stir memories, and become treasured keepsakes that will be cherished for generations to come.
What is your approach to weddings?
At our core, we approach each wedding with a deep sense of reverence and personalized attention. We understand that a wedding is more than just a family gathering; it is a sacred milestone in the journey of two individuals deeply in love. We hold immense respect for the union of souls and find joy in witnessing the birth of a new family.
To truly understand and honor the vision of our couples, we take the time to listen and learn their unique desires. We meticulously follow their wishes, ensuring that every aspect of our work reflects their authentic selves. We believe that weddings are joyous celebrations, and we strive to preserve this spirit throughout the entire experience.
Drawing inspiration from our passion for editorial composition, genuine moments, and the interplay of natural light, we create imagery that is both breathtaking and true to you. We curate specific moments of the day, such as capturing intricate wedding details, preserving heartfelt exchanges of written vows, and assisting in finding the perfect locations for official portraits.

Full length film? Trailer Style? Short Movie? What’s the difference?
The difference is the duration of the video. The trailer is a video up to 60 seconds, which is ideal for social networks. You can post it to Instagram or Facebook. Mini clips are 3-6 minute long videos which highlight the important parts of the day. Mini clips don’t show everything, but they do capture the mood and atmosphere of the day very well. A big film is a film lasting up to 30 minutes, depending on the number of hours of video shooting. It is artistically assembled to include all the events of the wedding, including greetings and entertainment.

What is your recommended duration of coverage for our wedding?
The duration of coverage we recommend for your wedding solely depends on your final timeline and preferences. However, as a general guideline, we usually suggest starting approximately 1.5 hours before the bride is scheduled to get dressed. When it comes to the reception, there is no need for us to stay until the late hours solely for dancing and celebration footage, as we can capture those moments in between your reception events. Therefore, it is typically best for us to stay until your last main event, ensuring we capture all the important highlights of your special day.
How do you capture the vows, speeches, and audio throughout the day?
To ensure pristine and clear audio, we employ a variety of techniques. First, we discreetly mic up the groom and the officiant, allowing us to capture every heartfelt word of your vows. Additionally, we connect to the house audio system, ensuring that we capture all the important moments with exceptional clarity. During the reception, we collaborate with your DJ or band, seamlessly patching into their feed to capture the speeches and other audio moments, guaranteeing a comprehensive recording of the day's special moments.
Will we receive the raw footage?
Yes, we include the raw footage as part of our package. While the final edited film showcases the highlights and storytelling of your wedding day, we understand the value of having access to the unedited raw footage. It provides you with a complete record of all the moments captured, giving you peace of mind and the option to revisit any specific moments in their original form.
Have a question?
Remember, our main goal is to help you capture your special day in the most beautiful and authentic way possible.
We are here to make your wedding photography and videography experience smooth, enjoyable, and memorable.
