Greetings! I'm Frank Guy, a leading videographer located in the charming Charleston, SC region. For me, videography is far more than just a profession—it's the very essence of my existence. I draw inspiration from my mother, who dedicated over four and a half decades to teaching piano and relished every moment of it. Embracing her wisdom that "When you pursue your passion, work becomes a joy," I've woven my love for videography into the fabric of my life. Retirement isn't even on my horizon because I'm fortunate to be immersed in what I adore.

100% Recommend!!

Frank was absolutely fabulous! I was hesitant on getting a videographer due to trying to stay within my wedding budget. Some people told me it would be worth it so I stretched my budget and hired Frank. Let me just say it was the best decision I made. Frank did an amazing job capturing literally every special part of my day! Ive been watching the videos over and over reliving the day. Wedding videos are a must and I 100% recommend Frank!! Not only did he make sure he captured every moment but he asked me questions to make sure that when he put my videos together that it would be everything I wanted. He nailed it. It was everything I wanted and more. It was the best day of our lives and we now have something to watch any time we want to relive it! Thank you so much Frank! These videos are going to be forever special to us!!!

Frank makes you feel like a friend, not a client

My husband and I planned our Charleston wedding from the Middle East, so we were really fortunate that our planner recommended Frank as he was so helpful and communicative the entire process. He takes his job so seriously, shows compassion and enthusiasm from every email to the actually wedding and even after the wedding. He is really creative and allowed us to share what our "vision" was and made it happen. I appreciated that he was happy to hear our feedback and requests and he went above and beyond to produce wonderful footage. Frank is the best and you'll be in the best hands in Charleston if you choose him as your videographer.

Jarrett/Garrett wedding

Frank was very professional and easy to work with. He did an excellent job and I would highly recommend him for your wedding and reception. The videos are high quality and very tastefully done. We couldn't have asked for someone easier to work with or a better quality product.

I have over 20 years of TV News experience and have been shooting weddings for over 8 years now. My news background accentuates my ability to story telling.
That is why the “Love Story” is a very important aspect of the wedding video. I try to personalize what makes each couple special to each other. This personal service and professionalism is what I believe, separates me from the other wedding videographers in the Charleston area.

Frank has done two videos on my business (they can be found here www.myArtistici.com). They still bring tears to my eyes when I watch them. My business was my dream! He has a great personality, easy to work with, and the best equipment around. He'll make you look and sound good...even if you're camera shy! Francis West Studios captures what photographs can't. Everyone should have a Francis West video of their special day...they will cherish it always.
