It is important that your wedding videographer and photographer have a good working relationship that compliment each other and offer you a product that you will be proud to show to friends and family.
We are passionate about wedding videography and photography, we enjoy the romance, passion, pressure, party and the honour to be involved in such a big and joyous occasion. We just LOVE LOVE! What puts us streets ahead of a lot of people in this industry is our genuine love for photographing and filming weddings.
It is very important that you must feel relaxed in the company of your videographer and photographer of choice, you can have the best wedding videographer and photographer to shoot your wedding but if you are not relaxed in their company it will show on the video and photographs. Our brides always say that we were like an extra bridesmaid at the wedding. We consider that as a compliment… it means they were relaxed around us.
