Authentic Cinematic Stories: My name is Jason and I’m a Wedding Videographer based in Ireland and look forward to creating an amazing film for you both, your families, and your friends. For me there’s little better than exploring all around this beautiful island and I look forward to travel anywhere to film your authentic story whether your wedding video is in Dublin, Galway, Belfast, Donegal, or anywhere in between.
Using a creative and discreet approach I video in a documentary style – your guests probably won’t realise there is a film being created! And you will have a luxury film that will be treasured for many generations.
I love natural light and creative framing to complement your story. For the best wedding video I love it if you just relax and enjoy your day, I’m just another friend on your journey so you can be yourself and enjoy what’s important to you on your wedding day. I will create a unique luxury wedding film that gives an emotional and accurate account of your wedding.
So if you are planning a wedding in Ireland, or further afield destination wedding, please let me know and I’ll be happy to craft a specific quote for your wedding video. Please get in touch for more information and to check your date for wedding videographer availability.
Your Wedding Video Collection
A short story-led film around 3 mins long that will be ready within weeks of the big day.This will have a real story of the day and will contain natural and spoken audio from the wedding.
This is what I'm most proud of and I know you will be also! It's around 25 minutes long, but sometimes goes over 30 minutes. It's fully colour graded and tells an authentic story of your wedding day.
All key moments from the vows to the speeches are included.
Long Ceremony Edit
This is all the personalised elements of your wedding ceremony from arrival at the venue, walking down aisle, the readings, vows in full. It contains all the unique moments and ends with and walking back down the aisle as a married couple.
I generally recommend 12 hours on location but I can include more or less depending on your event. These are the types of films you can look forward to then delivered to you within 10 weeks.
Speeches or Toasts Film
This is a realtime edit of the speeches as they happened. Filmed with 2-4 cameras and multiple audio sources to ensure the highest quality of audio. Running time is the same as the length of your speeches
My Filmmaking style
It's important for me to make sure that my style of filmmaking is a great fit for you both. I love creating wedding video packages that suit your exact requirements. I'd love it if you could tell me a little bit about you both, and also your exciting wedding plans. Each year I only accept a very limited amount of wedding commissions. The more details you can share the more helps me become more invested in you both and your vision.
Please also watch some of my wedding films from all around Ireland to determine if I’m the wedding videographer for you. There are so many varied styles of videography out there. There are a few items that I can recommend you watch out for in wedding videography to ensure you get the correct person for you.
Footprint: Discreet or Visible I’m discreet: I shoot as a single shooter, using small discreet handheld cameras, and approach your day with a light footprint. You won’t notice me there for the bulk of the day. I want to always position myself correctly to capture the real moments of the day. You may prefer a large team to film every single thing of the day and may like being directed all day long. I prefer staying in background though and recording the real day as I see it.
Style: Story led or a music video? I’m story-led but there’s no correct answer here again as this is your taste. I love to include natural audio from the day and spoken words from the event. I take pride in my audio quality and story telling abilities. However, some videographers, and couples, prefer a more music video style where there is a music track dominating the soundscape. This is your preference — I love to weave a story from the sounds and visuals of your day to create my films rather than to rely primarily on a song for the emotions.
Experience: My experience dates back to 2002 when I began as a photographer. After years watching the wedding videographer I always had the feeling that it was something I wanted to try. So in 2015 I bought a small video camera and started filming and editing. I fell in love with videography and knew I wanted to do this even more than photography. And since 2017 I have been exclusively video only. With video you can really capture a true and authentic experience. You can hear the voices, see the way people move and for me I love how immersive and real a good wedding film can be.
Cinematic or Traditional Wedding Video Packages? My inspiration comes from the Cinema and strongly believe that to be ‘cinematic’ we must make each film feel movie-like. The rules of the cinema are timeless but they do slowly evolve. I hope by watching some of my videos you can feel the cinema in them. I use cinema lenses which also enhance the feeling. But I appreciate not everyone wants the movie like feeling to a wedding video.
A more traditional style of videography would essentially be a really long documentary edit. There’s no really creative editing or storytelling. As a wedding videographer I don’t do this traditional style — however along with your creative shorter feature film I can provide a long ceremony and full speeches video in your wedding video packages.
Timeless or Trendy & Cool? Again, taking from the cinema, I don’t do the current trends just because they are ‘trendy’ or ‘cool’. If it doesn’t fit into my interpretation of the rules of the cinema then I don’t do it! My style always evolves however and it’s not static.
I’m always careful to ensure your wedding films will be elegant, heartfelt and timeless.
