Filming style

As a wedding videographer, I was always asked the following question, “What is your shooting style, cinematic or documentary?” My answer is documentary. By the way, the next was “Are you filming with DSLRs?”

“Unfold your perfect day in a passionate and spontaneous way.”, now I found it is the most suitable sentence to describe my shooting style. I love to observe what happens to the couples on their wedding day, and people around them on the day, unfold it discreetly. I do not like planning a story board and directing the couples how to act so to get the required footage to make a so-called “Cinematic” wedding film. I am okay with that, but this is acting, not wedding.

Wedding films must be natural and candid.

Beside Grooms and Brides, I also love capturing the reaction of their guests and relatives, that includes kids, grand parents, aunties and uncles, friends from local or overseas, etc, whoever being invited to the wedding ceremony and reception. Having them captured in the video would be lovely and memorable when the couples watch the video every time.

I hope my sample videos speak for themselves.

(October 2014, Sydney) Cindy + Leo’s wedding highlights

When I first met Cindy and Leo, they told me I was one of their short-listed videographers for filming their wedding. I was very pleased to be part of their wedding.

It was my great pleasure to work with this lovely and sweet couple. At the wedding reception, Leo prepared a special dance session as a surprise for Cindy which was remarkable. The day started from filming Cindy’s preparation at Manly, the ceremony was at St Philip’s Church Eastwood, traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony and wedding reception were at Rhodes Phoenix Chinese Restaurant.

Last but not least, here the feedback received from Leo. (Original review please see Google+ of Sunny Siu Videgraphy)

“Sunny was a very friendly and professional videographer. My wife and I were very pleased with how beautiful our wedding videos were which captured our big day splendidly. Highly recommend Sunny.”

Betty + Andrew (feature highlights)

(Mar 2014, Sydney) A beautiful wedding feature highlights of Betty and Andrew. The day began with a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony followed by a civil ceremony taken place at Chinese Garden of Friendship. Reception was taken place at Fat Buddha Chinese Restaurant. It was awesome working with Vincent Lai (the photographer) and the team from Faces makeup and hair (hair and makeup), and the civil marriage celebrant Linda Marsden.

Elizabeth + Andrew’s wedding highlights (Sydney)

I really loved and enjoyed filming Elizabeth and Andrew’s wedding. Fun, smiles, tears, sadness all happened in a day. Remarkable and unforgettable. Like other weddings that I filmed, it’s truly candid, no posing or acting, simply captured the true moments of the day. I hope you’ll like this highlights as I do.

Joanne + Calvin – highlights of the day

I filmed Joanne and Calvin’s wedding in a beautiful day back in October this year. The ceremony was held at Eden Gardens and the reception was held at The Deckhouse at Hunter Hills. It was also the Fleet Festival Sydney on the day and luckily we could see the stunning firework in one of the best spots (I reckon).

I love this highlight video so much and Calvin’s vows was really touching. I hope you’ll like it as I do.

Traditional Wedding

I love to shoot traditional weddings, no matter Chinese, Vietnamese or Cambodian ones. I always find heaps of fun, love, and tears in these weddings, the basic elements to make a wedding video (or film if you like) looks great. Recently I completed a wedding video for Kerrie and Tin, a traditional Vietnamese wedding, every single bit and pieces impressed me and the most amazing thing was the effort that the bridal party and groomsmen had put in. Here shows the highlights of Kerrie and Tin’s wedding and I hope you enjoy it like I do.
