I would describe my approach as relaxed and natural. I am discrete, easy going and will capture all the big moments on your wedding day as well as all the finer details. If direction is needed however i am more than happy to step in and offer some guidance. All weddings and couples are different so it is important to me that your film embodies who you are as people, and what the day was about. Your film might end up being fast-paced and jam-packed with people or it could be just the two of you on top of a mountain with a very slow pace and romantic feel. Whatever style fits your big day, i am confident that you will enjoy your wedding film for years to come.
I book a limited number of weddings each year to give each couple my full creative attention to document and edit their day to the highest standard. Please complete my contact form including as much detail about your wedding day plans and about you as a couple as possible, so I can make sure my style is a great fit for capturing your story. Once I check my availability, I can send you over a brochure with package and price details.
All of the music I use is licensed as I feel it is important to support the wider creative community. The music is a very important part of your wedding film and I invest a great deal of time in selecting the right tracks to edit your film. I aim to select tracks that are unique to you and your story. To help do this I’d love to chat with you about the sort of stuff you listen to to help with this process.
I am based in Edinburgh, Scotland but love to travel - nationally and internationally.
I usually arrive one to two days before the wedding to familiarise myself with the venue and the locations and to hopefully meet you in person (if we haven’t already).
I aim to have films completed between 12-16 weeks after your wedding. I dedicate a great deal of time to the craft of editing so i can perfect your film and tell your wedding story in a unique way.
I will upload your film to vimeo.com first as an easy way to share it with your friends and family. Your final film will be provided to you on a A Cinematic Life branded USB drive and packaged with care (depending on the package you have chosen).
I am constantly updating and upgrading my equipment but my aim is to keep it as light and mobile as possible for ease and flexibility on the day. Your wedding is an intimate celebration and not a film production but rest assured all my camera and audio gear is of professional quality.
I generally keep in touch via email but hopefully we will get a chance to meet in person for a coffee to discuss all the plans for your wedding day. If this is not possible it would be great to arrange a phone or Skype conversation.
If you make the decision to go ahead and book then I will send through my contract with all the details for you to look at. To secure the booking, you just need to choose your package, forward the deposit, email back the contract and we are all good to go. : )
