Tell me a little bit about your business!
I started my company, Traveling Heart Productions, in March 2014. I specialize in wedding cinematography, offering couples stylized, documentary style wedding films.
What makes your work unique?
My wedding films are bright and fun, and they capture the love that surrounds the couple on their wedding day! I blend documentary style shooting with some cinematic elements, giving people a wedding film that is authentic, and also artistic and fun to watch. I also pick music that reflects the vibe of the day, and use the song(s) to help tell their story.
What is your ideal client like?
I love working with couples who want to have fun on their wedding day! I love laid back couples who want to laugh and enjoy themselves, and who are excited to be tying the knot in front of all of their friends and family. They feel that love is everything in this world, and documenting the love they have for each other, as well as the love they have for their friends and family, is the main reason they want a wedding cinematographer.
What is your approach to videography?
I am a documentary style cinematographer. My main goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible. I don’t get in your face, I don’t use a big bulky camera with a blinding light. If I see an opportunity for a cool shot, I may ask if you’re willing to pose/turn/position yourself a certain way. However, for the most part, I try to stay out of the way, hang back, and capture everything that’s happening around you.
Video is such a powerful medium. Our thoughts, dreams, and memories are in moving pictures. Your wedding film brings you back to that day, and it’s a really cool thing to see such an amazing, meaningful, and very personal day from another perspective. It can be emotional, as well as a very joyful, I-can’t-stop-smiling experience!
I have a very straightforward, documentary editing style. I don’t use a lot of special effects or transitions. I want the footage to speak for itself, because those moments are what tell the story!
