I can explain my work ethic and style till the cows come home. The best thing to do is check out my example videos. You will feel a difference with my films. I’m a visual storyteller who has experience with several different types of documentary film. I began focusing on weddings because they’re just as fulfilling, if not more so, than my documentary work. In my opinion, wedding stories can be as good as any reality tv out there. The stakes are high and I love creating something you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
I’m not into making films which consist mostly of slow motion and music. Don’t get me wrong. I like beautiful slow motion shots just like the rest and my films will have those. But, I think a wedding film should be so much more than that. I mean, silent films are images put to music. I don’t do silent films. I want to incorporate SOUND. I’m out to capture the conversations, dialogue and ambience that surround your big event.
I aim to tell the story of your day which involves your story as a couple and family. My films mix observational storytelling with several other documentary styles. Although my goal is to create something which I think you’ll love and love to show others, you ultimately have the final decision on whether to include or exclude any content from the film. You may want to focus more on the day itself and less on the back story. How personal we get is up to you.
When you book with me, it’s guaranteed I’ll personally shoot and edit your wedding film. This allows you to receive a unique piece of art that I’m continually and meticulously crafting. Other companies are constantly farming local videographers in order to fill multiple same-day bookings. The videographer’s experience and quality of equipment can vary wildly and they have nothing to do with the editing process. In addition, other companies have their editors work fairly quickly and they usually follow a fixed template. This can leave the product feeling rushed, stale and cliché.
I don’t make anything I wouldn’t enjoy watching myself and I usually try to make myself cry. Each wedding is a gift to be explored. Let me tell your story.

Rick was our amazing videographer for our wedding and I am 110% sure that I made the right decision trusting him to film my wedding! From the very beginning Rick was excited to capture our wedding, he would have such fun ideas on how we could capture the couple of days, and was always prompt with my billion questions or comments I had for him. Rick listened to what I wanted in my video and went above and beyond!! Rick was with us for two full days (the cruise and the wedding- hence above and beyond!), on the day of he was always on time, professional and SO SO kind... everyone loved him! He was great at being in the background and not having the camera right in our faces, and captured so many moment that I didn't even know he was there! I felt so comfortable with him around, it was like having a family member hang out with us! His quality in his videos speaks for itself, such great picture and he is so good and editing:) He is able to tell a story through his videos that warms the heart. I could not recommend Rick enough, he is such a talented person and you could not go wrong with letting him film your wedding... trust me! Thanks Rick for the amazing videos, we will forever cherish these moments you were able to capture!!Sent on 02/28/2021

Two Thumbs Up for Weddings by Richard Scott
Richard delivered everything we could have asked for in a videographer. His documentary background shines in the final product and lends well in creating a memorable wedding film.Sent on 03/28/2021
Richard worked seamlessly with our venue, DJ, and photographer to capture the moments that were important to us. His style of editing was exactly what we were looking for in a videographer.
Richard is a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend his services.

Love our video by Richard Scott!
We absolutely love our wedding video from Richard! When we were shopping for a videographer, we really struggled to find someone who’s style we connected with. We almost just skipped the video because of it. But when we found Richard, I knew he would be able to capture our day perfectly. He does such a good job editing in some natural sounds from the day so you really can relive those moments over and over again. I can’t believe that I ever thought we didn’t need a video. You won’t go wrong if you choose Richard to document your day.Sent on 03/12/2021
