I get excited every time we add a couple to our S|F family. I love to travel, but also love welcoming our couples to this beautiful city of Charleston! My process is making sure it is all about you and your partner. It is so special learning about each unique couple that connects with me.
I love seeing what your story is...which makes it that much more fun on your wedding day to see what story happens. People ask me all the time, how do I get my couples to say this or say that in a wedding film? I don't. There will be moments like a first look or maybe even you and your besties having mimosas while getting ready. I simply want to film these moments as they happen, I won't tell you to say anything or act a certain way.
The way I go about filming your wedding day is that I like to say I am an extension of your photography team. This is a big reason why we love working with photography teams that welcome a cinematographer and love coexisting with us to make sure you get the best pictures and video of your special day.
You won't hear much from me at all on your wedding day other than a few times during your portrait sessions. By the time your wedding day arrives, I will know what is the most important to you as far as your film is concerned, who I am putting microphones on, and the schedule your planner has organized.
When the wedding is over, the magic on my end begins! I will stay in communication with you during the production process of your films so you have an idea when to expect everything. Check out my IG Stories and you might be able to catch a glimpse of what I mean.
We connect! We'll chat it up and find more about each other. I may talk about the latest piece of furniture my son is currently climbing on in the house and may learn that you know or don't know your partner's phone number by memory, haha! Our meeting or phone call will be a no pressure conversation, I simply want to take the time to not only learn about your wedding day, but also the two of you.
And guess what?!! You can pick the music for your films if you want! Hooray! With a minor exception... the music you select has to be from the website libraries I provide for you so we can make sure my company, as well as you, are legally covered when sharing and distributing your wedding film material with friends and family.
