Trailer + Feature Film.

A match made in heaven.

Now that you’ve officially taken each others hand in marriage, you certainly wouldn’t consider separating a match made in heaven, would you? Just like your flower girl and ring bearer gracing the aisle before your grand entrance, your Trailer was perfectly designed to prepare the way for your Feature Film.

Get ready.

You may want to check with your phone service provider to make sure you have an unlimited messaging plan for your phone, 'cause once your Trailer leaks online, your inbox may not be able to handle the traffic.

The perfect time to shake things up a bit.

Your wedding is over, a couple months have passed, and you’ve had a chance to settle in. We think this is the perfect time to shake things up a bit. Just before your Package is complete, we’ll post your Trailer online in hopes of nudging your family and friends to get excited about the Feature Film of your wedding day, which will soon follow.

Just one more. Please?

Oftentimes, a Feature Film is accompanied by two or more Trailers. If you’d like us to create two different versions of your Trailer, just ask. Adding just one more Trailer is a small adjustment to your Investment, but it could be well worth it.

Hollywood-style credits.

Remember, a Trailer is not a Trailer if it doesn't have credits. Other wedding videography and cinematography studios offer Trailers, but it is extremely rare to find one that includes credits.  We are intentional about working with you to create Hollywood-style movie credits at the end of your Trailer, tailored to your preference.

Featuring you and yours.

Adding Hollywood-style credits is a small touch that sets your Trailer apart from others and adds value to your Package. One of the things that we love about adding credits is that it features your wedding party, family members, friends, and the talented group of hand-picked wedding professionals that played key roles on the most important day of your life.

Watch every day. Not just on your anniversary.™

A timeless, artistic highlight reel of your wedding.

Knit with love, inspiration, and even theatrical-style credits.


“I can’t believe that is a wedding ‘video.’ It looks more like a movie.”

We tried thinking of a way to follow this statement with a fun explanation, but quickly realized that the quote itself really should stand alone. The only thing we’d like to add? We’re not quoting ourselves here, but others who’ve commented on our work. But don’t just take our word for it, check out what others are saying by reading a few of our Reviews. Then, watch the Feature Film above and see if you agree.

This is what it’s all about.

In the same way that the bride deserves the spotlight on the day of her wedding, the Feature Film deserves the spotlight of your Package. This is what an experience with us is all about. We don’t overlook the important details, apply cookie-cutter treatment, or rush through the post-production process just to check things off a list. Remember, we’re not just producing a wedding “video,“ we’re hand-crafting a “film,” which will eventually become a family heirloom that will be passed down for generations to come. After all, you’ been looking forward to your wedding day your entire life, why not invest in a Package that will capture it all and make it last forever?

Hand-spun lovin’ + cinematic storytelling.

Your Feature Film is delicately crafted using a contemporary yet timeless filming style threaded with cinematic editorial techniques. The result? A story experience which not only reflects your love, but is bent on sweet-talkin’ your wedding day into unraveling via film in a creative, engaging, and unique way.

Well worth the wait.

Patient intentionality is something that is hard to come by these days. Sure, other wedding videographers and cinematographers maintain a certain level of deliberateness during the filmmaking process, but few are willing to push the envelope in the area of intentionality in the same way that we do. It doesn’t matter if it’s something administrative, creative, technical, legal, or even a routine task, we are meticulous filmmakers, obsessed with perfection. We don’t cut corners and we are focused on producing our very best films for every couple we work with. We understand that our Turnaround is longer than the average wedding videographer, but in order to produce the quality of work that reflects the integrity of our style, this level of intentionality is required. And if we fast forward to the time that you have your completed Package in hand, we think you’ll agree that it was well worth the wait.

Videography. Cinematography.

Our approach to wedding filmmaking offers a style that is completely different from traditional wedding videography (to learn more about the differences between the two, please read “Videography vs. Cinematography,” an article we wrote that was published by Wedding Day magazine in 2011). Or, if you’re more of a visual learner, just watch the Feature Film above and we think you’ll notice the various differences quite easily, even if you don’t know a single thing about filmmaking. Our couples, their families and friends, (even complete strangers, believe it or not) are watching our wedding cinematography over and over again. As a result, we’re quickly learning that, compared to those investing in traditional wedding videography, cinematography is something that you’ll watch on a regular basis. Not just on your 10 or 25 year anniversary.

A family heirloom your kids may just be fighting over.

Our style of wedding cinematography translates into films that won’t just be sitting on the shelves in the basement collecting dust when you’re older. They’ll become family heirlooms your children and grandchildren may just be fighting over.

Save the Date

Your story, told well.

Considering the idea of using film during your ceremony or reception to tell your guests the story of how you met, fell in love, or got engaged? We’ll come alongside you to help tell this story, creating something meaningful, memorable, and entirely unique. Revealing your Love Story short film on the day of your wedding may evoke the most pleasant and flattering of remarks imaginable from your family and friends.


The new family heirloom.

Love Story is not only intended for use on the day of your wedding, but for years and years to come. Not only will you have this short film to watch for the rest of your life, but the story of your love will be preserved in film so that, when you’re older and the time is right, you’ll be able to pass this down to your children and grandchildren as a family heirloom.

Reception slideshows. Overrated. Outdated. And now, they’re outdone.

If you’re thinking about slapping together a slideshow and running it as a feature during your reception, you may want to reconsider. Watch the Love Story above and imagine how something like this might go over, instead.

Slideshows are slipping out of style.

Use film to tell the story of how you met, fell in love, and got engaged.

Save the Date

You never thought sharing could be so fun, did you?

Engaged and thinking about sharing the news in a creative way? Save the Date is the perfect way to not only announce the news, but a memorable way to celebrate her recent "Yes!" and generate excitement for what's to follow.

Mark your calendars.

We'll take you on a shoot (alone or alongside your photographer) somewhere that has special meaning to you both (or just some place fun), then edit and provide the film for sharing.

Get ready to invite your family and friends to mark their calendars!

Haven’t popped the question yet? Guys, you might just want to check out this idea.

We’ve all heard of crazy, ridiculous, funny, or romantic proposals. But how many of them have you actually watched? Well, if you’re the type to go all out and have spent months planning so your proposal is absolutely perfect, then Save the Date is the perfect Extra for you. You could even be "in" on your secret plan so we catch the whole thing on film when you pop the question, especially her reaction when you get down on one knee. Talk about the perfect "hidden-camera" b-roll for your Save the Date or Love Story short film.

Double up by showing it during your reception, too.

Even though a Save the Date short film is intended to be used during your engagement, it could also make for a lovely feature during your reception. Sure, your Save the Date is meant to draw attention to your date before your date actually arrives, but we’ll be sure to edit it in such a way that it’s not outdated the moment it’s first revealed. To explain what we’re getting at, just watch the film above. It’s clearly a Save the Date short film, but you’ll notice that it never actually says “Save the Date” anywhere in the film. It’s a subtle touch that nearly doubles the value of this Extra. Now that’s something to get excited about!

Roast or toast? Do booth.

A remarkably new take on your reception.

Video + Audio. A richer, more dynamic experience than a Photo Booth.

Wait, Film Booth? Yep, there's no typo or confusion here. Film Booth goes way beyond a traditional, "3, 2, 1 and click!" Photo Booth. Sure, Photo Booths are definitely valuable and have their place, but they do have their limitations. A Photo Booth offers only still imagery, while a Film Booth offers motion imagery and audio too, which makes for a richer, more dynamic experience for you and your guests.

The best, the worst, and everything in between.

We will paint with light, engage your guests, and breathe in the sights and sounds as we pull out their best. Or your worst.

Hip. No inhibitions. Intended precisely for your reception.

Your Film Booth is where all hell breaks loose (so to speak, of course). After the ceremonial events have finished, jump on in, the slate will snap, and it's free reign to toast the bride and groom, dance with a friend, share a hilarious (or meaningful) memory, tell a joke, or when it's your turn just stare at the camera without blinking until your eyes water, they throw rotten tomatoes at you, and a cane reaches in from out of the frame to pull you off set, cartoon style.

Catch the action.

Film Booth captures the priceless moments of your reception that you normally would be missing while you’re busy making your rounds, showing off your new last name and entertaining your guests.

Extend the value of your Investment to your guests.

After your wedding, we’ll preview the footage from your Film Booth, and cut up a 5-10 minute "best of" reel for a fun, memorable take on your party (um, we mean reception). A Film Booth can either be included as a part of your Package or offered as a stand-alone Extra. For your guests, it will be available for individual sale at a Thread Carpet Premiere, or when your Package is complete.

Customized fun.

The beauty of Film Booth is it’s flexibility. It can be customized to fit the space at your reception venue, as well as the style, design, and color palette of your wedding. About the only thing you don’t have control over is what your guests say when the camera is rolling!

There’s nothing old-school about the hand-knit approach that characterizes our dynamic style of filmmaking.

If you’re looking for traditional wedding videography or an old-school approach, you won’t find it here. Every Package is knit with exclusive offerings (i.e., an Edit Session, online Screening Room, choice of an iPad or iPad mini, custom-designed Artwork, the Original Footage from your wedding day preserved digitally through our Archival process, etc.), and to describe them all in one conversation would be nearly impossible. That’s why we created large number of exclusive  aspects we include in every Package we offer (to learn more, see our All Packages Include page) to describe them in one conversation, which is one of the reasons why we provide so much information on our website .

For the kid in you.

Children and newlyweds have a lot in common, especially when they’re filled with excitement. Both usually have a hard time sitting still, and it’s impossible for joyful impatience to be held within, you can spot if permeating from their persona from a mile away! We love this dynamic, because we see it in our own children, the couples we work with, and even ourselves. We understand how important your wedding is and know how excited you are to see some of the footage and relive the day. These are a few other reasons why why we’re now offering a Sneak Peek. This film is similar to your official Trailer, but is actually a separate film, released sooner than your Trailer.

Within this timeframe, your official Trailer will make its debut somewhere within 2 months of the release of your Feature Film. And we know that there’s a good chance that you’d like to preview footage or catch a peek sooner, rather than later.

Watch highlights of your wedding day.

Even earlier than your official Trailer.


The exclusive approach to our wedding filmmaking demands a delicate dedication to your hand-crafted story. And an entirely different Turnaround.

Every film we produce is delicately hand-crafted with the hope that they reflect our couples perfectly and eventually, become family heirlooms that live on for generations to come. We are meticulous filmmakers, intentional about every aspect of the filmmaking process. The specific ways in which we tailor our services and the depth we apply to the level of customization to the end-product provided within the overall shared experience with our couples are just a few reasons why we only only take on a certain number of weddings a year. As a result, the average Turnaround for our Packages is 9-12 months.

An early glimpse of what’s to come.
