What is your approach to filming a wedding day?
We established an exclusive signature style to our wedding films with couture approach and distinctive modern techniques. Our style is purely candid storytelling, not stage direction. We’ll still interact with you of course, but we don’t want to interrupt with the flow of your day. This way we can capture those real, natural moments as they happen and produce a cinematic style movie, with a unique and compelling storyline, Yours.
Why should we hire you?
We know you have many choices. But you have only one wedding, so if you want to play it safe, you should choose a recognized, multi-award winning company with the touch of female sensitivity and you can’t go wrong.
We have all the international experience in different cultures. We have filmed Muslim weddings, as well as Hindu, Persian, Christian, Jewish, Bahá’i and New Age.
Our skills and abilities allow us to enter personal spaces that are the domain of women and where women feel comfortable with female crew. Our “built in” services include: Sensitivity, Empathy, Attention to details.
What’s the difference between videography and cinematography?
The short answer is: videography is more like the nightly news with the aim to document the day.
Cinematography is more like cinema, where the aim is telling a story by capturing all the details, sights, and emotions.
Longer version: Cinematography prioritizes quality over quantity, and is more like a short film than a straight recording.
– Different look. Cinematography is more characterized by a shallow-depth-of-field look, smooth camera movement, good quality sound, and the feeling of high production value.
– Different equipment. Cinematographers use DSLR cameras, a lot more expensive gear, and usually a larger quantity of it.
– Different shooting style. Cinematographers shoot more like photographers, using different angles, and trying to record beautiful images. Also, multiple cameras are used for recording, to add interest and meaning.
– Different editing style. Cinematic films emphasize story, and much more work goes into the editing.
Who shoots the weddings?
The weddings are all shot and edited by myself, Hans Muggesen and my assistants. However, if I get double booked on a particular day, I’ll send out an extra cinematographer to cover the second wedding. I personally choose all the crew I work with to ensure the end product is consistent. These cinematographers are also available in case of any emergency situation where I would not be able to make it. It would have to be a dire emergency to keep me away from your Wedding! It’s good to know that we do have back-up options worst case scenario.
What kind of setup do you need?
Ideally, having the ability to freely move in both the church and reception hall produces the best footage. In case of editing a Same Day Edit, we would love to have a separate table and access to electricity. However, we are very flexible and able to work in all types of environments.
What is a Same Day Edit? What exactly is the big deal about these that you are so proud of?
Yes, we are very much proud of our Same Day Edit! It is a short ‘highlights reel’ of your wedding day, edited right on the day and shown on your reception night. The ability to watch it with all your friends and family at the very best time, the day itself, is an incredibly powerful thing – this is where the tears and laughs flow. It brings us so much joy to see the pure emotion these films unlock, and we look forward to sharing this on your wedding too.
How soon after the wedding will we get the video?
Our turn around time is generally between eight – ten weeks after the wedding.
