Wedding Film & Engagement couples shoot was SO AMAZING

Hiring Fine Art Wedding Film was the BEST decision we made! Their work is immaculate, they are so kind and professional. Their communication was also the quickest of all of our vendors and it was so appreciative. I cry happy tears every time we watch all the versions of our videos. They made sure to get all the best angles and all the editing of scenes and the timed music pieces are incredible. You can tell they are passionate about their work and truly care! The investment was worth every penny! From our engagement film, to our wedding day, we felt like movie stars with incredible films we can watch over and over! Thank you SO MUCH, we can never thank you enough!! Desmond and Vera, you both deserve every moment of happiness this world has to offer, every day!!

Previous Review from engagement shoot: Desmond is SUCH an artist and a joy to be around! Our couples shoot/engagement session video is absolutely stunning and we are SO excited to have him film our upcoming wedding day!

True Artists

I could not be happier with my wedding video. I did a lot of research on photography and videography because at the end of the day, after all the planning and expense of ALL THE THINGS, the only thing that truly preserves the moments are the pictures and the videos. And because there are family members and friends you know you won’t have forever, I really wanted to be able to look back on speeches, etc. and hear their voices, see them dancing. I looked at a LOT of wedding films, and educated myself a little bit about the different styles of videography. I wanted artistic moments enhancing specific moods, light, and movement, but I also wanted a feeling of natural authenticity. What I got far exceeded my expectations, and I would venture to say that Desmond and his team were also more affordable than many videographers out there, which helped me stay on budget. Desmond was so easy to work with, and the beauty and artistry of the video made us very emotional while we watched it for the first time - we can’t wait to share it with our friends/family. I also found that Desmond and his team worked very well with my photographer and demonstrated absolute professionalism at all times. They even helped us keep the mood light when we had a teeny bit of family drama that was making me a little crazy lol….for which I can’t thank them enough. Desmond was willing to work with me on last minute “a la carte” requests as well. I know people generally wait a long time for fully edited “feature length” wedding films; Desmond told us at the beginning that it would take approximately 2-3 months to get the video and he delivered it on schedule as agreed. Bonus: the thumb drive arrived within a beautiful wood memory box with intricate logo and thank you card on heavy stationary. Even the thumb drive looked like a piece of art. It’s something we are proud to display. I would recommend
Fine Art Films ten times over.

Since a young age, I had a strong fascination with explorers, discovering new worlds, where myths and legends were told from generation to generation and ancient rituals formed part of being. What I love about weddings is that I am invited to a very sacred event to tell the story of two worlds coming together. I step into the universe of two unique people and combine what I learn about them into a highly personal cinematic wedding film.

For as long as I can remember I have always been in performance arts. From playing music in front of people to acting on stage and later producing my own feature films for cinema, there has always been something quite surreal about stepping out onto the stage, a live audience watching closely holding their breath at tense moments, shedding a tear during sad ones. It is a very special bond between artist and viewer… This same excitement and tension I feel when I hear how our artistic impression of your day brings back memories and even tears.

For me filming a wedding is a big deal. I capture every wedding as if it is my first, my last and most important one. In short, I take a very detailed approach to filming and I am always on the lookout for better angles, creative ways and perfect lighting.

I believe that every bride deserves to be the star of her wedding. I strive to find a way to show just how gorgeous she looks and if she tells me that her left side looks better than her right, I take her word for granted and keep it top secret.

What really inspires me about my work is the magic between two people in love. Their genuine connection to each other is perhaps never more evident than on the wedding day. I am really grateful to be a witness to their genuine emotions and I feel connected to the couples we have the privilege to shoot. As they say it takes two people to tell a love story, so meet the love of my life Desmond.
