I don’t charge an hourly rate because the way I shoot is not conventional. My films are not linear or edited on the spot.I truly love to get to know the married couple, their story, who they are and what their ambitions are. I get all my research done on the wedding location and work alongside with the wedding planner and vendors in advance. I come early on the big day, to take in the surroundings, the mood, the atmosphere, to guide my inspiration. I pay attention to everything and everyone throughout the day and I envision the finished product as I am filming. I then return home to write down the story of their movie, since we are telling a story after all, the video editing comes after. I strip down all my rushes, listen to every word, and search out every clue that can help guide the story through the editing.
Being musician at heart, I put a lot of emphasis on the music. I go through hundreds of songs to find the perfect tune to best fit the story I’m telling.
Since perfection is found in the details, I try and retry and then try again when I put scenes together until the movie is perfect. I work as an artisan, and I pay meticulous attention to my craft.
