What Makes Us Different
Our wedding video packages offer fair, honest, flat-rate pricing. Every couple we work with gets a videographer's unlimited time on the day of their wedding, so that every memory gets captured. We don't charge by the hour and don't cap the number of hours we work. All of our packages also include the entire raw video library, and (weather permitting) beautiful drone footage, for no extra charge.
Who We Are
FourFour Pictures is based in Detroit and operated by its founder, Zachary Bucholtz. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan's program in Film, TV and Media, and the director of several films and local commercials. In addition to Zachary, we have a stable of highly-skilled, professional videographers with over 50 years of combined experience in the industry.
Why You Should Choose Us
We know that weddings are not cheap. And we know that a wedding video is a luxury that many couples can't afford. We pride ourselves on offering beautiful, cinematic 4K wedding videos at a price point that makes our services affordable for everyone. We've simplified our business model to cut out all the excess and offer you the best service for the best price. We are proud to be the most affordable full-service wedding videographer in Detroit (seriously, go look).
Where We Serve
We shoot regularly throughout Michigan, Ohio and the Greater Chicago Area. We charge a $0.50/mile travel fee for weddings outside of Metro Detroit, and a $100 hotel fee if over 150 miles away. We will also travel to anywhere in the world, with no upcharge for travel (expenses are billed at cost).
Our primary video cameras are the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. We chose the BMPCC4K for its industry-standard color science, high dynamic range, and low light capabilities, which contribute to a video that is both vibrant and true to real life. Aerial shots are taken from the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, the top consumer drone on the market. And we use exclusively Canon L-Series prime lenses for sharp, detailed images.
We edit our videos using DaVinci Resolve Studio and the Adobe Creative Suite, the same tools trusted by major film studios around the world. In addition to the drone, we use the state-of-the-art DJI Ronin-S for stable, cinematic-looking handheld shots, as well as a slider and jib for smooth motion. Audio is captured using a Sennheiser wireless microphone and a Tascam field recorder to pull a line from a PA or DJ booth, providing high-fidelity capture of your vows and speeches.
Our booking process is fast and straight-forward. We have a two-page e-signable contract that guarantees the service. The date is secured upon payment of a nonrefundable deposit equal to 50% of the total cost. All of our billing is done through PayPal for convenience, security and transparency.
After booking, we have a short intake form to get a better idea of how your wedding day will function and what you are looking to get out of the video. We then have a check-in phone call before the wedding, and again after the wedding to make sure that all of your wishes are being met to the best of our abilities. There, we will ask for your direction (if you are inclined to provide any) on the edit, and send samples of music from our royalty-free music licensing partner, Artlist.io.
Raw footage is delivered shortly after the wedding via Google Drive digital download. Final delivery of edited videos is done through Vimeo and Google Drive to maintain the highest possible quality. And client review is available upon request using the interactive frame.io interface.

So great to work with and a beautiful product!
Four Four Pictures was AWESOME to work with! Zach and Kristi made us feel incredibly comfortable and adapted quickly when the weather didn’t cooperate for some planned shots. My grandmother was in the hospital and unable to attend the wedding and Zach quickly turned around a video of the ceremony so that she could watch. This meant more than he will ever know to her and my entire family. We highly recommend their professional, friendly, and accommodating service throughout the entire process. Everyone was very communicative and made us feel at ease the whole time. Thank you for capturing our day so perfectly!Sent on 09/25/2019
FourFour Pictures's reply:Thank you so much Kendall! We can’t wait to share the video with you; watching the raw footage I was just blown away by how beautiful a day it was (despite some weather). -ZB

hands down the best guy for the job!!!
Zach was AMAZING! The moment I saw his work I knew I HAD to have him to capture our day. He kept in contact the entire time, and made sure he got any specific shots i wanted. I have only received the Raw footage so far, but it makes me excited to see the entire video. Zach was very professional but very laid back, a great guy to work with. My husband was VERY impressed with him as well. Thank you so much ZachSent on 10/09/2019
