Because it's not everyday everyone you love will be in the same room. Because you're going to spend your wedding in a dream-like state, and wake up barely remembering a thing. Because generations from now, your children's children will thank you for this one of a kind heirloom. Because life happens, and every once and a while you have to take a step back and remember the promises you made to each other.
Let's make your love story. I want to be an asset to you on your wedding day, bringing a sense of humor and calm as well as my camera bag. Fun is the name of the game, rain or shine we'll make your images authentic and heartwarming. When you look back years from now, you'll remember it as one of the best days of your life.
Here are some of my likes and dislikes when it comes to weddings:
Candid unposed pictures and video
Couples that write their own vows
Polaroids and film photography
Making out (doing it myself but also watching, sorry, I'm kind of a pervert)
Badass wedding planners
Being witness to raw and genuine emotion
Veils of all shapes and sizes
Families that love each other
All animals (especially dogs and raccoons)
Dancing at weddings
Having plenty of time
I don't really dig,
Highly posed pictures (a la Pinterest)
Stuffy, stressful weddings
Dance floor party poopers
Brides that have other people call me to inquire
Bossy or rude wedding planners
Train tracks, fountain or crossing the street photos
The Cupid Shuffle
Burlap & Mason Jars
Endless family grouping combinations
Words of love
"If you want to relive the best day of your life over and over again, book Cecile! Seriously my husband and I got married on 4/30/16 and have received our teaser as well as a couple short videos and CANNOT stop watching them. The way that she captures the day is unbelievable. The videos are romantic and breathtaking! We were back and forth about whether or not to book a videographer because we were trying to keep our costs low, but hands down, it was worth every single penny!!! Not to mention, her crew is awesome and hilarious. Our wedding party felt comfortable with Cecile and her crew! Best decision!!! Without her, we wouldn't have been able to see half of the amazing details from our wedding."
"Cecile shot a small engagement video for my fiance and I. It is so beautiful!! I have gotten endless compliments on the video and how magical it was. I cannot recommend Cecile enough! Her talent is beautiful!!!"
"Hiring Cecile will be the best choice you make about your wedding day ... other than marrying the love of your life. I guarantee it."
"I would recommend Cece and team to anyone. In the process leading up to the wedding, she was professional and very accommodating. On the day of, she was friendly and energetic - exactly the type of person you'd want around on such a special day. Most importantly, the videos she made are incredible - they capture all of the happiness and excitement in a way that completely exceeded our expectations. Watching them is like re-living the day all over again."
"I absolutely LOVE Cecile. She was pleasant and friendly. Great to work with. Very creative and sent me a teaser trailer two days after my wedding. She is such a great person and I love her creativity and style. If you want a wedding Videographer that will express your personality, HIRE CECILE!! She is amazing!"
My bride is a little different... not looking for the usual or traditional. Captivating, highly emotional images are the goal here. It's not just about documenting your wedding day, it's about creating art inside every frame. I offer medium format (120 film), digital and instant film (polaroid!) coverage. After the big day, we create a dynamic package of prints and display options and I even offer consultation on how to post your photos on social media.
Wedding Day expenses can add up quickly, and I completely understand the need to budget reasonably. With that being said, I'd like to encourage you to give additional thought into budgeting for a professional wedding film, as this is an investment that will remain with you and your spouse for the rest of your entire lives together. In fact, the #1 regret of brides after their wedding day was not hiring a professional film crew. Many past couples (and their mothers!) tell me that their day came and went so quickly, so much was forgotten, and to be able to relive time and time again every single moment from their special day is a blessing.
