WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY

by Philippe Bouyer-Gray  [charlotte, NC]

 

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. It is an expression of your love, a celebration of your commitment and a reflection of your style that you will want to capture and relive for the rest of your life.

 

A wedding day film portrays this exciting experience, and allows you to share those precious moments with your friends, family and future generations over and over again.

 

Wedding Takes is dedicated to providing discerning couples with a dramatic retelling of their wedding ceremony, as well as the preparations and joyous reception surrounded by loving family and friends.

"Thanks to Philippe and Christine, all of my precious memories were caught on film and then put into one of the most beautiful works of art I have ever seen. Now I know that I am biased because it was my wedding, but the beauty is in the filming and editing. Every moment was captured perfectly and then placed in just the right spot to create a masterpiece. I am completely blown away by the gift that Philippe and Christine possess and am so thankful that they shared their gift with me."

 - Rachel Tolbert-Hanchey

"The video is so beautiful.  My heart is full... what a treasure to have it.  You captured the moments, the emotions, the friends, the pure joy of the day and for that I can’t thank you enough. Beautiful... simply beautiful."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What's included?

Much more than a simple recording of the day’s events, Wedding Takes gets to know each couple individually and creates a movie reflecting their style through appropriately selected scenes, music and imagery. Your final wedding movie is composed and edited using our professionalism, reflecting over 25 years of movie making experience and resulting in a memory that you will cherish for years to come.

 

I have a photographer – isn’t that enough?

We see videographers as complementary to photographers. Although both photographers and videographers capture your special day on film, the photographer creates still pictures and portraits, while the videographer creates a wedding video that is a moving portrait of your joyous day. We coordinate with your photographer to ensure that the still pictures and the wedding movie provide you with complementary souvenirs of your wedding.

When should I reserve my wedding date?

Please reserve your wedding date as far in advance as possible. In addition to securing the date, this allows the most time for us to get to know you and your style, and to develop a customized screenplay based on the details of your event. Advance scheduling also provides ample time for us to capture background and montage footage, and work with your wedding coordinator, photographer and venue manager on logistics and timing.

 

How long is the final film?

The length of the completed  full length movie depends upon the length of your ceremony and reception. The average length is approximately 40 minutes.

 

Is videography a hobby, a part time job or a career for Wedding Takes?

Absolutely a career! Filmmaking is a passion Philippe Bouyer Gray recognized as a very young child in France.
