Michelle & Chris! I can't really begin to express how thrilled I am that you reached out about your wedding. I adore small hometown weddings, at times it feels nostalgic like I'm watching a 90's movie about old friends coming together in ball of love and drama.
Artifacts and traditions are important to me. I've spent the last 20 years recording them for people and it has brought me immeasurable joy seeing all the sweet embraces, family rituals, and personal vows. You will make big promises to each other, my promise is to pay attention and participate as any of your friends would.
I've included a few sample items for you two to look over below as well as a little pricing.
Super 8mm is one of my favorite mediums. I love its versatility and the ease with which I can tell the story of your day. Nothing conjures up a memory like reliving it through the magic of moving pictures. I don't know quite what it is, maybe it is the imperfect nature of the tiny film, the little scratches and spots of dust flying by the screen, or the shakiness, whatever it is I find it captivating and hope you will too. I always shoot every event with 2 or 3 cameras, substituting one out for a Super 8 works seamlessly with my workflow. If you've been on the fence about hiring a videographer and just haven't liked what you've seen, or you aren't sure if you want 4 more cameras at the wedding, perhaps something a little less tech and more feel is what you need.
We require a 50% retainer with the remaining balance due 30 days prior to the event. Alternatively, if you wish to pay in full at booking you would save $500.
Just reach out and let me know if you would prefer to do the 50/50 payment schedule or the pay in full and I will send along your contract and invoice.
