My approach to wedding cinematography is very ‘fly on the wall’ style, I aim to capture genuine moments with authentic emotions by only shooting handheld and letting you guys concentrate on each other.
The most important thing to me about your wedding, even more than capturing beautiful moments throughout your day, is for you guys to have the most stress free, enjoyable day possible.
I am super excited to hear from you, so let's chat and let's get your wedding date on my calendar before someone else books me and snags your wedding date!
I would absolutely love to be your wedding videographer. I am super excited to hear from you!

Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A VIDEOGRAPHER?
A: I first picked up a camera seriously when I was a teenager (2007). Starting out documenting moments in life as I traveled around Australia with my family to creating short films in high school. But it wasn't until I graduated with my Bachelors of Digital Media in 2014 that I took it on as a full-time career. So, we're talking 6+ years now as a professional.
Q: HOW MANY WEDDING HAVE YOU FILMED?
A: I've filmed over 200 weddings as the lead videographer, I was part of the team over at WayUpHigh Films for many years as a lead videographer while I was studying. And since there's only 52 weekends in a year, my weekends have been basically filled with love stories and late-night celebrations ever since I became a videographer, and I love it!
Q: DO I NEED A SECOND VIDEOGRAPHER?
A: Personally, I say no - unless you have more than 200 guests AND you want specific focus on them and/or you want the exact same moment captured from two different angles (I bring two cameras with me during the ceremony & speeches) OR if you have a really large wedding venue that would be difficult to move between two areas quickly. Otherwise, I have personally filmed more than 200 weddings completely solo and every single couple I have ever worked with has been 100% happy.
Q: WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
A: This might start getting a bit technical, but I personally use Sony A73's with prime lenses. Both are literally on me at all times throughout your wedding day so I never have to worry about changing lenses, switching memory cards, or changing batteries. Plus it's great having a back up camera at all times!
Q: DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
A: Yes, I do! Traditional payments are 30% deposit due at the time of booking (within a week) and the final 70% is due 30 days prior to your wedding day. But, if you wanted to do the payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/3's or 1/4's if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. It's that easy.
Q: HOW DO I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING DAY?
A: Love that question the most! To book me for your special day, simply let me know what you want included in your custom collection:
- Number of hours of coverage
- Highlight Package + vows & speeches or Extra hours (optional)
- Documentary Package + Extra hours (optional)
Click 'accept' on your quote and a deposit with be generated for you. Once we receive the deposit you're officially booked in my calendar, Yay!
Yep it's that easy!

Where do I start? Ed from Blue Vale Films was undoubtedly our most valued vendor throughout our whole wedding experience. From our very first interaction with Ed, he has been incredibly helpful, friendly, professional and supportive. Originally drawn to Blue Vale Films for the incredible quality of films, it was Ed’s demeanor and work ethic that truly set him apart. Ed was always happy to answer the million and one questions we had, whilst also taking the time to get to know us to create a film that was so perfectly unique and representative of us a couple. Even through all of the challenges and uncertainty of 2020, Ed was incredibly accommodating and understanding. On our actual wedding day, Ed’s calming and warm nature made the day flow effortlessly. Ed also allowed us to live-stream our ceremony to our loved ones from afar, which was so greatly appreciated during these challenging times.
THEN we received our film! What can I say? It was just breathtaking/ tear jerking (happy tears)! Ed had somehow captured so many special moments (many of which had gone unnoticed on the day) and encapsulated them into one truly moving film. We cannot wait to share our film with all of our loved ones and look back on it in years to come.
If you’re anything like us you might be thinking, do we really need a videographer? If so, I would strongly suggest making budgetary adjustments elsewhere to do so. Photos are beautiful memories of course, but there’s something about watching the film that takes you right back to the moments of your special day. You will not regret it!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!! - Christine & Lachlan
ME AT A WEDDING
Why should you book me? Well, I guess ultimately I don’t want to just be another fish in the sea. I don’t want you to book me because I’m a videographer within your budget in your area. I want you to LOVE my work, and to like me as a person. I want to work with people with whom I will be friends.
So, let’s be friends
