Using these techniques, we are able to document your wedding day in a manner you will enjoy for decades.

Our Wedding Videography Collections offer a variety of coverage options to suit your wedding.

We currently offer up to 6, 8 and 10 hours of coverage with the option to add on additional hours as necessitated by your wedding timeline. We also include drone coverage for unique aerial views that will absolutely enhance your wedding film. Drone coverage is also dependent on the weather and local regulations and flight restrictions.

A Knoxville Photo & Video Studio
A Cohesive Final Story
There are many benefits of commissioning a wedding studio that offers both photography and videography under one roof. The first benefit is team cohesion, when you hire a separate photography and videography company, they have to learn to work around each other on your wedding day. This can cause stress and confusion. When you choose an all in one studio, there is only one creative director that can manage both photo and video angles and coverage.
The second benefit somewhat piggybacks on the first benefit, quality control. By having only one creative director that manages the entire production of photo & video from beginning to end, you can enjoy a matching photo & video aesthetic including color, contrast and toning, versus a video that looks entirely different from your photography.
The third benefit, simply provides you with a better experience. When you book a photo & video studio, you only have to deal with 1 contract. With most photo & video studios using online systems to manage bookings and payments, this also means simplifying the payment process. With only 1 contract to sign, this means you can combine your photo & video payments into one, paid to only 1 vendor.
Photo & Video Under 1 Roof
We understand that many couples would prefer to combine photography & videography services under one roof. Our recommendation is to book these services with matching coverage options. For example, if your wedding timeline leans towards 8 hours of photography coverage, book your videography coverage for the same 8 hours. This will allow comprehensive and equal wedding storytelling on your big day. Our studio makes this very easy by offering similar photo & video collections. Our most popular wedding photography collection, Collection II, offers 8 hours of coverage, as does our matching videography collection.
A Passionate Photo & Video Team
When you book both photo & video, our team will consist of 2 photographers and 2 filmmakers, for a total of 4 team members, not including lighting assistants and additional hired help. Although this may sound like excessive, in reality, any less would be doing you disservice. Proper Photography & Videography coverage carries plenty of logistics and angles that require adequate personnel. Take for example a bride walking down the aisle, looking down the aisle as the bride proceeds down is a moment that must be captured, but what about the grooms reaction as he tears up watching his soon to be bride approaching? That is an additional angle that requires an additional person to document it, see what we are saying?
Better Coverage = Better Memories
Although there are many Knoxville Wedding Videographers that work solo, or even attempt to offer photo & video solo, we feel that this is a disaster waiting to happen. Our studio opts to charge a bit more and provide two filmmakers that focus solely on filmmaking, this provides our couples with peace of mind and allows us to capture unique angles that are impossible with a single videographer.
We look forward to creating an amazing wedding film for you and your family, if you are interested in commissioning us, please contact us.
