Why Video?

A photo may remind you of a moment - but a video will make you feel like you're there.  It can capture the words you say and all of the small details that make you who you are. There's nothing like video for reliving your day, and remembering the love you share.


The Process:


1. Tell us your story.

We want to get to know you and your story. We learn about all of the people you're excited to see and the moments you can’t wait for. Then, we work together on your timeline to make sure the day flows effortlessly.


2. Have the best day.

Our first priority is that you get to enjoy and take in your special day. We promise that if you’re having fun then we are absolutely making a good video. The less you feel our presence, the better our shots will be.


3. Laugh, cry, share.

Our edits are simple, we aim to let your moments speak for themselves. If you are just as likely to cry laughing at your own dance moves as you are to shed a sentimental tear then you’re going to love the film we make for you.



Where are you based? Do you travel?

We are based out of two cities - Richmond, VA and Syracuse, NY. We are currently taking 2019 & 2020 weddings in both locations and the surrounding areas. Our 'home territory' includes any city within a 2-3 hr drive of these two cities and we don't charge additional travel within that range. Any travel beyond that is also welcome and we have special rates for destination packages so please don't hesitate to inquire!

How many videographers do you bring?

We always work as a team of two people to capture your day, one lead shooter and one assistant. Both Zach and Gabby are lead shooters of separate teams, though they often shoot together as one team.

How many hours do you film?

Our standard coverage always includes up to 9 hours, which is perfect for the majority of our clients. However, you can always add hours if needed. Our goal is to arrive about an hour before the bride gets dressed, and stay until we have filmed about one hour of open dancing.

How long are your videos?

We offer both short and long creative edits as well as simple documentary edits of full ceremonies and reception speeches. Our creative film options are the 5 min. Highlight, the 7 min. Short Film, and the 15 min. Feature. For more detailed information about the different packages and what’s included in them, please inquire on our contact page and we'll set up a time to chat about what might be the right fit for you.

How much does it cost?

Our most popular offerings are in the $4-6k range depending on the quantity and length of the edits you choose.

How long have you been filming weddings?

As a studio we have filmed almost 150 weddings since we started in 2012. We love it even more now than when we started and continue to grow and learn every year :)
