Why We Became Wedding Videographers

Here's the TL;DR version: we turned down multiple people who wanted us to film weddings because we didn't want to be wedding videographers.

Now you're thinking... Why would we want to hire these guys? They Don't even care about their filming weddings! 

After researching other local videographers and different styles we decided that we could in fact, be wedding videographers. But the reason we hesitated was because of everything it takes to do this. You have to buy good computes that can handle HD video. Like... A lot of video. You also have to buy expensive camera equipment, travel gear, and create a business.

This is what got us motivated in becoming wedding videographers. At that time, there was hardly any wedding videographers doing what we wanted to do, or doing it good. Back when we were in college we knew we wanted to be own a production company, but after jumping into the "real world" we realized it was a little harder than just starting a company. But we knew that this could be a side project that shows us how to properly run a business.

If you've ever owned your own business you can relate to the struggles. There are licenses, tax requirements, state regulations, and all this fun stuff that you could really care less about. However, if you want to have a legal business, you have to care about it. That was one of our biggest hurdles that we continue to struggle with. Whether it's hiring employees, or budgeting for the year to come, we are constantly learning. This was a stepping stone in the right direction and we've just been following where it takes us. 

Then we looked to invest in equipment. Part of investing in the equipment is seeing how much you're going to spend, and how you can make it back. We maxed out some credit cards and got some of the best computers and cameras we could afford. Then we started scrambling for clients. 

After our first couple videos we started building a reputation of awesome videos. That's when it started to sink in that even though this was supposed to be a stepping stone, we were actually really good at filming weddings. We also realized how much fun we had, even though we were working. We started to become passionate for creating emotional videos.

Since then we've invested in WAY better equipment, we've gotten office space, and we continue to book more weddings every year. Last year was the first year we booked over 20 weddings and that's when it hit us. We're wedding videographers whether we like it or not.

SO HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?

We take pride in the time and creativity we put into each video, and we truly believe we have one of the best products out there. You can read more about our wedding package and what we offer when you view our pricing.
