Ok first of all a little commitment here: I do love aesthetics, I love when you tell me there will be loads of flowers and a beautiful venue. I’m excited to see your dress and the little details you probably put a lot of effort in. Of course I do. It’s just that I personally think there is so much more to weddings than the things just mentioned.
When filming a wedding I don’t want to focus too much on the beautiful flowers at the ceremony and because of that miss out on an opportunity to catch you hugging with your grandma on camera. I also don’t want you to focus too much on the perfection of the tablecloth, so that it keeps you away from dancing with your friends. It’s simple: in my opinion the focus should be on the very important things that cannot be kept other then on photos and film.
You can keep your bouquet, your wedding dress too, but you can never save that moment of your partner seeing you in your bride dress for the very first time. These are the moments that will make your eyes all teary even after decades. That perfect symmetry of the tablecloth won’t do that, believe me. The emotional moments are the ones that will remind you why you said „yes“ in the first place and why you will hold onto the love you and your partner share.
Some couples are worried about feeling too excited and uncomfortable in front of the camera. That’s why I think it’s important for you to know that I wont’t be directing but rather be in the background documenting everything as real as possible. Creating a safe space where for you to feel the most like yourself. I was told to have a calm and relaxing atmosphere and sometimes couples even wondered how I managed to capture certain scenes since they didn’t notice me. I’ll definitely try my best to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
Since I want to put all of my focus on that one craft, I prefer to do videos only. To me videography requires such a different mindset and on a wedding day I could never switch from filming to photographing or do both at the same time.
But of course I do work together with many talented photographers. Hit me up and I will recommend you some!
