Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Love Story?
A Love Story is an excellent way for your guests to get to know you as a couple better. We start off with getting to understand you as a couple months before your wedding via email/chat/skype. We find out more about your story, what you guys like to do, embarrassing and heart touching moments of your journey, all the good stuff. We then take that and develop, with your suggestions, a film all about you two. Then on the day of your wedding, we show it to all your guest; it is sure to be a crowd favorite as everyone will laugh, smile, and tear along with you.
Every Love Story is different, and that’s what makes it so unique; be it a short action love movie, or a comedic first meeting of you two, we want to bring your story to the screen and to your guests. Check out our Love Story we filmed for Korlene & Israel in our Stories section to see an example!
What is a Cinematic Trailer?
This is a 3-6 minute highlight of your wedding day. We compile the best moments into one cinematic film trailer that you can share with friends and family. We also include complementary napkins in case of teary eyes.
What is a Documentary Wedding Film?
We know how important it is your big day is to you, so we want to make sure we capture all of it.
Our Documentary Wedding Film is an edited film of your whole day, broken up into segments. From the prep to the last minute of your reception, it will have it all. Each segment is edited as dynamic short films with the shutterbug touch of magic. You can watch them individually, or play them all.
The Documentary Film can be anywhere from 45 minutes to 120 minutes, depending on the length of your wedding. Likewise, the documentary film segments can also vary in length depending on how long that segment was when we shot it.

ever since we were little, we dreamed of the big day…
20 years later, in and out of relationships, we find ourselves still dreaming of that big day. Funny thing is, we never knew we would be dreaming about other people’s big day also. We’re all about friends, family, and the breathtaking moments in life. 10 years ago, we never thought we would be doing this. We met each other in high school and went on different paths, but fate brought us back together; to create wedding films, that is.
P.S. we went to H.S. with Nicki Minaj so yea, we’re really, really awesome.
Will graduated from School of Visual Arts and works as an art director at a global ad agency. When he’s not getting mistaken for korean by grandmothers on the street, he likes to people watch, loves plaid shirts, and girls who love plaid shirts. He’s also a huge fan of “How I Met Your Mother” and his own mother wants some grandkids, so if you or anybody you know is a potential match, look for him at Mclarens pub.
Eymon is a product of public school education and currently works as an IT monkey for a major New York City Hospital. When he is not monkeying around with IT, he is busy working on ridiculous DIY projects such as a homemade projector, electric bicycle, and picnic-in-a-suitcase (patent pending). He has been shooting weddings for a year, and have come to appreciate the art of putting together a wedding in all aspects. Someday, he hopes to ride a Hot Air Balloon and propose to the girl of his dreams as they ride through the warm glow of a beautiful sunset.
