Our wedding films, are crafted with the such TLC, and layers of storytelling that will keep you watching from the first minute! Wedding days are a super magical time, but there is no question that it moves quickly. We always hear " That went so fast, I'm so glad you are here"
Creating a wedding film is like creating a real life movie that your closest friends and family get to star in. A film allows you to relive the day, hear your vows, see dad tearing up, see your best man moonwalk (or try) into the reception. It brings all the elements of joy and emotion as it depicts the love you and your partner share. Wedding Films can be a beautiful compliment to photography and the storytelling it provides. We are a talented team of cinematographers and love what we do!
As a boutique studio we take on limited bookings to provide the best capture and storytelling of your event.
(3 - 5 Minutes)
Our Highlight Films, are a candid capture of your wedding day. A five minute film to share some of the most magical highlights of your big day. This film is a carefully crafted love story; it focuses on your story and although may be shorter in length, it is still packed with emotion and fun.
(7 - 10 Minutes)
Our Short Films are a creative cinematic approach to your wedding. This film shares more of everything!

You heard us right! Same Day Edits! You may be thinking what does that mean?
Well a Same Day Edit, is a recap of your wedding shown on THE SAME DAY OF THE WEDDING! I know, exciting right! These are very popular, and something that guests love to watch during the reception. It makes them feel like they were there with them throughout the day, and gives them the opportunity to watch the fun unfold.
Here are some examples!
Concept Films are similar to "Engagement shoots" in the photography world. It is a film that specifically crafted for you before your wedding day. We meet with you sit down and decide what about you as a couple you want to share with your guests. Most times Concept Films are paired and shown on the day of the wedding as an intro to your Same Day Edit. Our Trailers are a collection of both Styled Editorial Shoots and One Minute Films that you receive just ONE WEEK after your wedding!!

Selecting Corinne to capture our special day on video was a simple choice. The only thing more impressive than her extensive resume is her finished product. The proof is in the pudding. Corinne is a consummate professional and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She captured our most treasured memories from the wedding and compiled them into a beautifully edited video that we love sharing with pride. Our video is our favourite keepsake and it's without a doubt the best way to reflect back on our special day. Thank you Corinne.

Oh wow we are blown away! What an incredible film you have created. We watched it a moment ago and were struck by the artful way you told the story and brought the magic of that evening to life. Thank you :)
~ LiSA + JAY ~
Corinne!!!! We are speechless! You've captured the heart and soul of the most amazing day of our lives! We watched it several times yesterday and cried each time. The tissue included in the package was a nice touch and definitely needed!
~ DARYL + ARIEL~
Corinne, it is extremely clear to us that you are a film maker, not a "wedding videographer". It felt like you hand picked your team based on their strengths. The level of coordination and communication amongst yourselves and the photographers was excellent. Lastly, it was clear that you all have a passion for what you do and this is likely why the results are/were so creative and professional.
~ OLIVIA + LUCA ~
I just wanted to send you another quick Thank you!! Our wedding video is seriously SOO amazing I can't stop watching it. You were such a pleasure to work with and really captured the best moments of the day. The voice-over's are so well done. The package you sent was so cute with the tissues and candy (we needed the tissues). The video really allowed us to relive our day and feel every emotion again.
You seriously are the best in the biz and did the BEST job with our film! Can't wait to re-watch this for years to come!!!
