Creating artistic, movie-like wedding highlight videos isn’t something any old Joe with a camcorder can do. If you are just looking for someone to record your wedding, ask a friend or family member. However, if you want a film that you are proud to show everyone you know; a film that you can watch any time you want and be right back in the moment; a movie that truly encompasses one of the most important days of your lives, then you’ve found the right videographer.
We can’t all be famous movie stars with paparazzi following us around all the time. Nor would many of us want to be. But you’ve got to admit. For one day it would be pretty cool. Allow Stories and Stills Videography & Photography to make you the star of the show. The beauty of our approach, however, is that throughout most of the day, you won’t even notice we’re there. We make every effort to seamlessly capture the events of the day as they happen.
A major component of creating a cinematic wedding highlight video is to make everyone feel comfortable to be themselves. We want to recreate your day in an artistic manner. To provide perspectives that you otherwise would not have been able to witness and enjoy. In order to accomplish this, it is our job to get the shots we need without making you feel like we’re breathing down your neck. You have fun and go on acting like we’re not even there.
When I am filming a cinematic wedding highlight video, I am constantly striving to capture unique perspectives to make your film compelling. I’m not a videographer who is afraid to go for the shots that will translate into a theater-like experience. That includes filming with a drone. As long as your venue is in a safe location to fly the drone outdoors, aerial footage is included in every video option Stories and Stills provides (weather permitting).
Your wedding day will be full to say the least. While you’re busy doing your thing, I’ll be busy ensuring that you get the opportunity to watch it all back from the comfort of your home. The candid moments that you could never have possibly witnessed at the time, are now on display in full high definition. Through imaginative filming and professional editing, I bring the entire day together in a concise, entertaining wedding highlight movie.
In addition to capturing all the best highlights as they happen, Stories and Stills can also help you create meaningful moments that simply require a little direction. With my background in writing and directing the ‘What Could You Do?’ DVD series, I have the experience to help choreograph those cool scenes you’ve been envisioning for months. This is especially important if you are going for an ultra cinematic look and feel. It requires a little planning and time set aside, but it’s totally worth it.
If you have any ideas at all that you want incorporated into your wedding film, please make it known. Stories and Stills is not a one size fits all videographer. If you’ve seen something that you liked in a friend’s wedding video, or just an idea you picked up from the internet, tell me. Trust me, you won’t hurt my feelings, ha. As a cinematic wedding videographer and photographer, I actually prefer to know what your vision is. It takes much of the guess work out of the artistic process, and enables me to ensure that your expectations are met. So go ahead, don’t hold back those ideas of yours.
