What does it even mean, "to be a storyteller?"

Stephan is not going to lie: on July 21st 2016, he had had it. He couldn't do it anymore. He couldn’t use that word “storyteller” or read about others self professing themselves to be that, "a storyteller". If he had to sit in front of that edit suite even just one more minute pumping out what had become the standard dime-a-dozen wedding music video, he was just going to cry or worse, throw his MacPro out the window in a hissy fit.

On the one hand, the team had built a successful wedding film company that up until that point made so many couples happy, but on the other, they had become human tripods pressing a red record button as they let the insidious and often-mocked wedding video box dictate how they should do things. They had succumbed to the formulaic assembly of:

  • drone shot openers (here’s a challenge for you: preview any given wedding video out there, especially in Hawaii, and 95% or more of them will start with a drone shot, and what's worse, many of them will continue with a second and third drone shot, then formulaically follow those up with some detail shot of flowers or a palm tree or the admittedly beautiful Hawaii environment… go ahead, check it out);
  • haphazardly and randomly assembled speech snippets;
  • music video theme, oftentimes with lyric music underlaying those haphazardly and randomly assembled speech snippets, which of course creates a cacophony of words cross-moginating with other words.

Even though the business had been making the team a living, they couldn't go on doing the same old thing, expecting different results and happier creative lives. Something just had to change.

One day, Stephan received an email in his inbox. It was from a 5-time Emmy-Award-Winning Filmmaker, Patrick, who dared the reader to step-up and learn what it really means to "tell a story."

Stephan replied, days later plunked down $6000 and began a journey that would teach him the science and art of storytelling and would take him to far off places, really telling stories that were so far outside the box of wedding music videos that once again, he could cry. Only this time he would cry tears of joy as he and other hungry filmmakers journeyed to places like:

  • Japan
  • Okinawa
  • Fiji
  • The French Riviera
  • The Colorado Rockies
  • Portland, Oregon
  • and the Hawaiian Islands

… telling stories that actually applied scientific principles as well as the nuanced art of storytelling.

Since that fateful meltdown in July, 2016 in his edit suite when he exposed himself as a storytelling fraud, his team and he have been on a quest to blow up the wedding film genre box and change the expectation of what a wedding film can be.

They hope you already see the difference in their work. But what’s even more is that Stephan sincerely wants you to imagine your untold story as the one story that will top every other they have ever told and become the new gold standard that touches the audiences’ hearts and moves their minds. The team wants your story to redefine what a wedding film can be, your desires, hopes, dreams and love to raise the bar for wedding film storytelling.

Thank you so much for embarking on this journey of purpose-driven creative with Stephan and his team and they can't wait to discover your film and tell your epic story.

Thank you so much for helping create the best day of our life! We 1000% recommend booking him ASAP - you won’t be disappointed.

    Incredible Experience

    To the entire team at Stephan Boeker films - WOW. WOW. WOW. And THANK YOU! We found Stephan and crew from our wedding planner's recommended vendors. We were interested in working with a videographer that had the ability to provide a live stream for our guests back home as well as a highlight film from the day. We live in Orlando, FL, but got married in Maui, HI, a place we’d never been, but Stephan Boeker Films quickly became the right choice for us. After reading the team bios and looking at the films, we were in love with the team's dreamy, authentic, and stunning film style.

    Leading up to the big day, Stephan Boeker Films was very responsive and provided us with an overview of the live stream. We also had the link early enough to post on our wedding website and ensure everything was perfect.

    To capture people as their full selves and allow that to come through in film is truly a gift Stephan and Michael have. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to capture our day. Stephan and Michael were incredible. Although we’d never met them before the day of our wedding, they made us feel so comfortable. They quietly captured the sentimental moments and allowed for intimate, sweet moments to happen naturally, but they also effortlessly guided us in capturing their artistic visions as well.

    The live stream for our friends and family watching in person - WOW again. The video and audio were so clear, and the framing was fantastic to be able to see our emotions. Even the screenshots virtual guests captured were amazing! We're so glad we had the live stream and were blown away by the quality.

    The editing of our highlight film is truly breathtaking. The music, the voiceovers, and the beauty of how all of the footage was pulled together still make us cry happy tears because it takes us right back to that special, incredible day. Because of Stephan Boeker Films, we have a truly invaluable work of art that captured the day's love, emotions, and feelings. We are forever thankful we had the opportunity to work with the incredibly talented Stephan and Michael.

    Thank you again, Stephan Boeker Films, for capturing our day and giving us a way to relive that day over and over.

    Spectacular cinematography!

    Stephan and I communicated over several months leading up to my special day. You can imagine how many emails we exchanged throughout that time. In the end, our videos were exactly what we wanted! We highly recommend him❤️ Thank you, Stephan!

I've worked with Live Maui Webcast on numerous occasions and they always do such a good job of documenting the wedding. It's been such a treat for couples to share their wedding day with friends and family who could not make it. We recommend them to all of our clients.

Live Maui Webcast got it going on. I've shot SO MANY weddings, with these guys recording in live & sending it out across the world to family & friends that just couldn't be here for the BIG event. How cool is that? Gotta love technology & "Live Maui Webcasts & DVD!"
