What We Do
Zinnia Films tells the stories of lives. Our videographers capture and preserve the details of your wedding day in an unobtrusive, documentary style. We work closely with you before your wedding day to tell the unique story of your day, while leaving you free to enjoy it. Our small footprint on the day of the wedding keeps the focus where it should be: on you, your family, and friends.
Our shooting style
At Zinnia Films, we take a boutique approach to our event video production. We work closely with you to tell the unique story of your day, without writing ourselves into the story. Coming from a background of documentary film and news journalism, that perspective creates the context by which we shoot: We make sure your day isn’t about us making a spectacle. What you can expect, in general, is that we don't set up lights or staged shots, and we don't put the camera in peoples' faces for candid interviews.
What we deliver
Our contracts are typically for an 8-hour day, for a single- or two-camera-person shoot. We transfer the raw footage to your external hard drive and provide the edited video as a high-definition file for your computer. We post a full-day montage of the event online that you are free to share with friends, post on Facebook, etc.
Getting to know you
We believe the best way to find out more about you is to have a face-to-face meeting. That gives us the opportunity to address all the questions you might have, tell you more about what we do, show you some samples, and learn a little bit about you and your fiancé. Contact us to meet for coffee, lunch, or happy hour to discuss options. We're available during the day, after work hours, or some weekends.
