Wedding Photography and Videography

 

I'm really proud to offer videography alongside my photography packages.

James is my partner in videography and also in life too! We are married and live in north Leeds with our little family and angsty cat.

His film style reflects my style of photography - natural, fun and relaxed. He finds the perfect light and lovely moments in the same way that I do, to make creative, funny and sweet films.

Wedding Photos and Films

I am so excited to now be offering combined and (literally) in-house photography and videography packages, courtesy of my husband James. For couples who are interested in a wedding film as well as photography, this means one booking for you and effortless coordination for us, from pre-wedding planning to editing everything for you afterwards. We are also licensed to use drones, so if you want that extra airborne perspective we can do that too, venue and weather permitting!

 

​The final edits will vary depending on your requirements and what your wedding involves, but you should typically expect a highlights trailer, a longer feature film and the option to have the ceremony and speeches in full. As with photography, we are always happy to discuss any special requirements.

 

James’ approach to videography matches mine to photography. Don’t expect distracting set pieces or intrusive filming, but do expect us to capture all the lovely details of your day in glorious high definition video. We are less drawn to cheese-heavy edits and tend towards a light-hearted and colour-rich retelling of all the special moments that make your wedding yours. That said, every wedding is wonderfully different and our wedding films are the same; there is no one-size-fits-all. But at every wedding we’ll be looking for the humour, the happiness and the love, and trying our very best to bottle it for you.

 
Wedding Videography with Photography

 

What to expect

First and foremost, don’t worry about equipment overload. James films with a DSLR just like mine, and to all intents and purposes he’ll seem like a second photographer. He sometimes needs to mount the camera on a gimbal for buttery smooth cinematic footage, but to you this will just look like a camera on a short pole. At times we’ll also set up additional cameras in fixed positions, but unless you’ve specified more, there will just be myself and James moving around. Just as with photography, we may occasionally need to light a scene up a little, or manoeuvre ourselves into the best spot to film, but we’ll always tread lightly when we do.

 

One of the most important considerations is sound and it’s important that we get good audio from the ceremony and from the speeches. To do this we’ll use professional microphones, which we’ll put either on or near to you. Don’t worry, these are small and unobtrusive little bits of kit, and we’ll only ask you to be as ‘mic-ed up’ as you feel comfortable with.

 

We’ve mentioned ‘the drone thing’ already. This is completely optional of course and we totally understand that remote controlled flying machines aren’t every couple’s cup of tea. If you do choose a package that includes drones, they really won’t be buzzing around up there all day long; we’ll be using them at key moments around the venue and surroundings and to capture some of the highlights of your day from a different angle. We are licensed to our very small, quiet drone almost anywhere, and a slightly bigger model away from congested areas, so there are very few places we can’t get airborne – it’s not all about big dramatic shots and sometimes just being able to get some footage from a few meters overhead can work magic.

 

Lets have a chat!

You may not have even thought about a wedding film until you read this, or you may be here because you specifically want a combined package. James and I would love to chat with you about our wedding videography packages and so if you have any questions please do fill out a contact form.
