Paperweight Films’ Creative Director.
We bring a combination of creativity, compassion, adventure and commitment to everything we do. Especially making films.
We’ve both worked in the wedding industry in different capacities, and we’ve also worked a lot in other fields. But when we began planning our own wedding, we were surprised at how much it felt like we were working with friends, not vendors (friendors?), who were genuinely excited to be a part of our celebration. We were inspired to apply our talents to provide a high-end service with the comfort and feel of working with an old friend. Our goal is to show couples the value and artistry of a wedding film, use our skills to document their public declaration of love in a beautiful and timeless way, and help preserve the memory of their wedding for generations to come. And with any luck, develop some great friendships along the way.
Let’s be real: you’re not actors, and your wedding is not a film set. We don’t run down the aisle with Steadicams, you’ll never have to hit a “mark,” and we’ll never ask for a second “take” of your first look because the light wasn’t perfect. Your wedding day will be full of expected moments (your first dance), as well as unexpected (your cousin’s dance moves), that we firmly believe should be documented, not set-up or recreated. During your wedding, we like to “disappear,” filming in an unobtrusive way that respects and captures the most exciting and joyful day of your life.
We’d love to learn more about you, your story, and how we can be a part of your wedding day.
