How would you describe your cinematography style?
Our wedding cinematography is meant to compliment our photography and our style is ARTISTIC DOCUMENTARY. We love to document real moments that are unscripted and authentic to your story. Our videos are bold and creative. During the portrait sessions we do very little posing, rather we direct our clients to do activities or engage each other to create natural moments. But in the end of the day what sets up apart from everyone else, is our storytelling ability to capture the in-between moments that makes your wedding videography unique.
How long have you been in business? What is the history?
We introduced Wedding Cinematography services in 2018 when one of our clients expressed that they loved our photography, but was struggling to find a videographer whose work complimented our style. That gave birth to our videography services and streamlining what we would offer that would be of value to our clients who value real moments. We only offer videography services alongside photography services.
What distinguishes your work from that of other cinematographers?
We introduced cinematography to match our photography style. ‘creative documentary’ cinematography that values real moments. Not posed or cheesy, but natural and authentic.

We are the first ones to arrive at the wedding venue to scout out potential locations for pictures and prepare ahead of time.

We use Canon and Sony cameras for all out cinematography projects. Whenever possible we recored audio to use in our final edits.
