How we Make a Wedding Film

With a blend of candid and structured moments, we capture emotion in the present to save you your own piece of history. We know the experience of creating an image is more important than the result so by focusing on experience first, everyone wins. 

It’s important you feel in a state of grace on your wedding day & are at ease with our cameras. As camera ninjas we’re going to be where you need us to be. From capturing a cheeky exchange to encouraging a few minutes of solo time at golden hour to being the comedic relief when you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed we’re the crew who will give you the presence you need.  We will not interrupt your ceremony or speeches – unless something is on fire – to provide you with a film that is warm, natural & true to your experience.

A little adventure is good for the soul and downright incredible when you’re part of a wedding. Mountains, rooftops, planes, kayaks, gondolas and bicycles – we’re no stranger to getting creative for a good shot. Heart is at the centre of our role as filmmakers and we are frankly humbled by the stories we get to share. 

What's happening? I don't even know these people & I'm crying at work!

If our videos give you goosebumps or you’re sneaking a peek at some random person’s video on incognito mode in your office, maybe we’ve hit the sweet spot.Our films are fun, emotional & charismatic. The energy of each wedding determines the music, sound bites and how we share stories. We recommend watching a handful of videos to find a style that speaks to you.

Do we really need both - video and photo?

We know wedding planning can add up quickly and video is often something people leave to the last minute. Our films are designed to compliment your photos, your memories and your experience overall. The power of motion and sound – hearing what comes from the heart of your favourite people – it can be hard to put into words, but you’ll know it when you feel it.

With the energy, focus & enthusiasm we pour into each and every film we create you’re bound to fall in love with the film we make for you.

How many videographers will be at my wedding?

We work as a smiley, stretchy-pant wearing camera crew of two. For ceremonies, we each man a camera and have a 3rd static wide angle camera to film the full scene. Our cameras fit in one hand & our lenses give us some pretty incredible flexibility, which means we will be following the natural flow of the day capturing what we need to make your film true to you.

I've booked a photographer who I'm really excited about, how will you work with them?

We adopt a collaborative approach with each creative on your wedding day so everyone can enjoy an awesome experience. We’ll reach out to your chosen photographer(s) in the weeks leading up to your wedding to learn about their approach and discover how we can work as a team. Our favourite photographers are friendly, considerate and want you to have the best experience possible. Great minds think alike.

We love your highlight videos and are curious if you offer longer edits?

Our creative 3-5 minute films are what we do best. Filled up with energy & good feels, these videos are created with heart and story front of mind. We often hear from people they’re left a little stunned after the first viewing & immediately hit play again (and again). As awesome as our creative highlight films are, we totally get sometimes you just need to see more.

We offer a chronological edit of your ceremony, toasts & first dances to pair with our highlight films. You can add on a few hours of filming to capture your rehearsal dinner or embark on fun post-wedding creative session we’d build into your film.

Where are you based and do you travel?

We call Victoria, BC home & will film anywhere we can venture to. Ask us about the one time we drove all the way to Port Hardy from Victoria on one tank of gas.

We’re heading backpacking in Banff/Lake Louise the last week of August 2018 & would love to film (a sunset ceremony) somewhere in the Rockies. We’ll be on Hornby Island for Labour Day weekend and in Tofino mid-September. Say hello if you’re thinking we might be fun to have tag along for your wedding. 

Can I get my film faster than 3 months?

Some of the couples we work with do this cool thing where they have a small-scale wedding and a reception to celebrate in different locations.

We had a couple host a destination wedding and opt for a Next-Day edit to recap the day with everyone who traveled to join in on the experience and it was so fun! We turned around an edit overnight and joined the guests for a hotel room viewing. Having the instant feedback and request to put it on repeat was an incredible feeling.

So yes, you can get a version of your highlight film faster and if you have something in mind just ask us here.

We'd like to book you for our wedding - how can we make it official?

Yay – fun times ahead! After you’ve scoped our Pricing Guide we’ll make a plan to meet and connect over FaceTime or in person so we can learn more about you & escape our editing cave. You’ll also get a feel for how we’d fit into your big day. 

Once you’ve decided on the film collection that fits best, we’ll send over our contract. With it digitally-signed Service Agreement & 50% deposit, the date is officially yours!

How far in advance do you accept bookings?

We’re happy to accept weddings up to 18 months in advance with most couples booking us 6-9 months ahead of their wedding date. Don’t worry if you’re thinking of having video last minute – send us a message (with fingers crossed) to see if we’re available!
