Well where do I begin with this incredible journey I have been on. I honestly believe I have the best job in the World when I think about it. I film happy people in some of the most incredible destinations and deliver Films that are treasured for a lifetime when you say it like that it is undoubtedly the best job in the World. I have won national awards, I have made new friendships with clients and I have got to be as creative as possible which I just love. I am purely driven by having an artistic approach to your Wedding bringing moments together. I think of it like piecing a jigsaw together making sure everything fits in the correct position, taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture.
When I look back on the last 3/4 years and how my Films have developed it makes me very proud and thankful to clients who ultimately it is down to as they trust and put their belief in you to create something uniquely special.
Filmmaking for me is being committed to a style and making bold choices. One thing I struggled with in my early stages is being confident to commit to a style of filmmaking. Now more than ever clients buy into the work I produce and also myself as a person. I believe in the simplistic methods of Wedding Filmmaking which in truth can be the hardest to master. My clients are provided a film that is a raw emotional storytelling journey that treasures every moment of a Wedding celebration. Solely based on being creative and challenging myself at every Wedding is what drives me.
The sooner I stopped worrying about filming everything instead of actually producing an engaging Film the shackles were released to be creative. My Wedding Videos are not based on filming things that don’t warrant it but more of the opinion of creating a Wedding Video that is to be treasured. I don’t work with big shoulder cameras and multiple bags of lenses. Most of the time I wonder around taking in what is going on and my need to film this. With a handheld camera it allows me to be creative and naturally focus in on light.
