ABOUT US

We are an award winning New England based professional videography team with a passion for preserving life’s most precious moments through our cameras without intrusion. Our VISION is cinematic, BUT with a DOCUMENTARY VISION OF film making. Rather than directing you, we prefer to stand back and capture things organically and let the day unfold as is. WE DON'T WANT YOUR WEDDING DAY TO BE ABOUT 'MAKING THE VIDEO.'

  Our couples are not actors so we want to capture the essence of their love and who they are as human beings as naturally as we can! REMEMBER THAT The best moments happen when you least expect them!
