Tell me a little bit about your business!
Just Hitched Films, started in 2012, is an award-winning wedding video studio consisting of three creative visionaries: Ariella Furman, Dana Custer, and Kylee Lenkiewicz. Together, we are on a mission to capture the human spirit and essence of the wedding day.
A wedding video should be a keepsake – a vivid capture of the most important day of your life. We are a modern, chic wedding film studio that focuses on telling the story of your wedding day, while also capturing the personalities of the two of you. We focus on the emotions behind the day, reactions of your friends and family, the side glances to your soon-to-be partner in life, and the nuances of two people in love. We want to capture the unique voice of your wedding story. The footage is unbelievably crisp, the close-ups are intimate, and the memories are relived! We are not just wedding video people; we are filmmakers with tasteful palettes who are dedicated to working with you!
What makes your work unique?
We’re fortunate; we get to make our hobby and passion – filmmaking – our living. We want all couples to be able to preserve their memories forever! We’re sure you have more than enough wedding-related expenses to balance, and no one should have to spend $4k or more on a wedding film!
We offer a ton more than most other videographers: two long-form video edits of the full ceremony and reception events, plus the beautifully edited highlight film. In addition, our highlights films are detail-oriented, shot heavy, and feature more sound bytes than any of our competitors. We want you to re-experience your full day, not just minimal snippets of it! We feel every film should be tailored to you, and that’s why we believe we offer the best value in the industry.
What is your ideal client like?
We love working with our couples. We would be nowhere without them! The most important factor in running our company is constant communication, because being on the same page with our couples means we are better equipped to capture their vision! We believe every film should be custom to who the couple is; our goal is to tell their love story. We have an incredibly organized three-step process in working together, starting with getting to know you, followed by carefully going over the schedule details and offering feedback, and last but not least, the pre-edit form where we can really listen to our couple’s wants and needs, and follow through with their vision for the day.
What is your approach to videography?
Anyone who has recently been married will tell you to savor and enjoy your wedding day because it goes by in a flash! After the day is over, it is impossible to remember the memories, the emotional moments, who said what, and how you felt. Let us be your second set of eyes and ears! We don’t want you to forget the sight of your little niece trotting down the aisle. The joy of seeing your grandma throw her arms up while dancing to “Shout.” The look of awe on your spouse’s face when they see you in your dress for the first time.
On the wedding day, we will see and hear you, but you won’t see us! Our fly-on-the-wall filming style allows us to snag every key moment from afar without getting in the way.
We pride ourselves in having a fresh and polished look, while still maintaining our small studio vibe. Therefore, we know how important it is to have the best people on your side. That’s why we only work with four excellent wedding videographers and why our owners personally edit every wedding video themselves, ensuring a consistent and cohesive look. We’re able to deliver a cinematic, movie-quality wedding video that remains deeply personal and customized.
