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.
