that bring moments back to life time and time again!

Wedding videography documents your day in a way that photos can't even touch! There is just something about seeing moments in motion that brings out feelings you want to relive forever! Highlight reel films capture the entire day in a way that shows the best moments and doesn't drag on or lose your attention! JBP videos focus on the dancing, the happy tears, the laughter together, the magic in the unique moments, the hugs with Mom and Grandma, the toasts from best friends, the words of wisdom from your officiant, the moment of reflection right before seeing each other for the first time...and of course the drunken shenanigans from the party bus and reception! 

I'm like a bridesmaid with a camera... but am I the right fit for you?

I'm not everyone's cup of tea (or Pink Drink) and that is okay!

I am bubbly with a touch of sass, and I always have a smile on my face. I will be your cheerleader and help you pull pranks on your husband. I will teach you the moves to the Wobble and rap Lizzo with you on the party bus. I will bustle your dress, feed you sandwiches, deep breathe with you, hype your bridesmaids, and wrangle rowdy groomsmen. I will hug your Grandma and listen to her stories. But most importantly, I will make sure you have the best day of your life and I'll make sure I get your good side while you do!

If you're looking for a photographer who is low key, quiet, and hands-off, I'm not your girl. But if you're looking for a fun experience with your photographer and soon-to-be new friend, I just might be the right fit for you!

we need to meet. ASAP!

handcrafted wedding films

the process

let's chat

step #1

Before we get any further, let's schedule a consultation! This is our chance to get to know each other better, hear all about your wedding dream, and see if I'm the best fit for your day. That's what matters the most!

MAKE IT OFFICIAL

step #2

If we decide we are a good fit, a signed contract and paid retainer is all you need to lock in your day! Your date is not reserved until this point and I accept a limited number of weddings, so don't delay on this step!

schedule your session

step #3

Your package comes with one session and we can use that time to create any type of video you'd like! Most couples opt for a "Save The Date" video and those are often shot the same time as their engagement photos. Other's prefer to do an interview style video that can be shown at the reception!

pre-wedding prep

step #4

About a month before your wedding, I will reach out to you to talk about the logistics and details for your day! This helps me prepare for your big day, create your custom timeline, prep your family formal lists, and more! 

get married!!!

step #5

IT'S GO TIME! On your big day, your job is to have the best day ever and to SOAK IT UP! I will be there to capture it all and to celebrate with you! I'll see you on the dance floor!

SNEAK PEEKS

step #6

I know you want to see results right away! The only thing holding me back is the more involved editing process when it comes to video clips and audio recordings. My goal is to have your sneak peek ready the week after the wedding!

FINAL DELIVERY

step #7

You can expect to see your final, full-length wedding video 6 to 8 weeks after your wedding day. The video will be hosted on the Vimeo website where you can access a full resolution download. You can also add a USB to your package to have a back up option for your video file.

TAKE ME TO MORE SAMPLES

There's no reason to stress about how much coverage you need - my team and I will be there as long as we need to be! On a typical wedding day, this is 9 hours of coverage, or closer to 11 hours on Catholic wedding days!

The Breezy Videography Package

To keep things super simple for everyone, I offer one all-inclusive wedding package! I’m a firm believer that your wedding day should be the best day of your life! You deserve a stress free day that is focused on celebrating with your family and friends. To make sure it’s super stress free when it comes to photography & videography, I offer one package that includes all the things you need for an amazing experience!

The Breezy Videography Experience Includes:

all day coverage

I never shoot without one of my trusty assistants! This ensures a moment is never missed and that another camera is focused on those in-between moments! This also means we have constant help with hair-fixing and dress-floofing!

second pair of hands

The Videography Package includes a pre-wedding session. The main goal is to get to know one another and get you comfortable on film! The result will be a "Save The Date" video or an interview video!

Pre-wedding session

When I say handcrafted, I mean things like attention to detail, celebration of your family and friends, consideration of your unique style and values, and the essence of all those little decor items you worked so hard on. Your film will be my style, but scream MR & MRS "insert your new last name here"!

HANDCRAFTED FILM

Let’s be honest: what’s a movie without the sound?  I focus on capturing the words you never want to forget, from the “I Dos” to the speeches, to the rolls of laughter! Authentic voice-over is a huge priority for me when creating your film. What about the music? I’ll cover that, too!

high quality audio

Making a Wedding Film is not as easy as hitting record on a cell phone. I've trained for many hours with my equipment and how to get the results you expect in any situation. I will record your wedding day with two or three HD video-recording camera bodies, optional drone footage, and multiple microphones and audio recorders.

professional gear

The first thing you will see from your wedding videography is a social media "trailer." This will be 60 to 90 seconds long, feature a small snippet of your audio recordings and some of the best clips from your day! It will be a great teaser to show friends and family!

sneak peek

The final result will be a six to nine minute highlight reel format video of your entire day. I focus on using a storytelling format, which tells your unique love story instead of just a chronological summary of events. Videos have been known to make clients laugh and cry all at the same time and you'll want to rewatch it over and over!

feature film

Say hello to your new BFF. We are going to get to know each other pretty well though this process and my couples quickly turn into new friends. Just consider me a bridesmaid with a camera! I got you through the entire process, and all the way to eating cake and doing the Cupid Shuffle at the end of your big day!
