As I prep for next week’s wedding (the amazing Lottie & Ross) I thought it’d be helpful to shoot a little interview explaining about my style, the way I work and my favourite aspects of capturing your big day.
I treat every wedding and every couple as if they were my first and last. I think wedding videos and weddings in general have really come a long way since I started shooting them back in 2014. There’s so much more attention to the little things these days and it’s so important to have a memory of all the details that you otherwise might forget. Everyone of course has a photographer at their wedding and I think more and more people are coming round to the idea that a wedding film is another way that you can relive the whole day without sitting through hours and hours of footage, essentially seeing all the bits you didn’t see. Being able to listen to the speeches, the ceremony, the vows, and the guests arriving is something that my couples really love to look back on.
Working alongside your photographer I’m as discreet as possible, most of my couples say “oh they didn’t even notice you were there half the time” and I think that’s the key - not everyone likes the idea of having a massive camera shoved in their face. I use small cameras so for anyone who’s maybe not sure about having their wedding filmed they’ve really got nothing to worry about.
I think what makes me different from other wedding videographers is the cinematic look and feel their videos have - they’re like proper little films and being a drone operator really can make all the difference when seeing their venue from the air as well. I do a fair bit of corporate work too making videos for brands but weddings are my absolute favourite as they’re a love story that tells themselves and I love watching back the video for the first time with the couple and seeing their eyes light up. Hopefully I’ll make them cry, cause if they cry then I know I’ve done a good job!
