Your Pre Wedding Shoot Awaits…

Couples from all over the world come to Queenstown, New Zealand to experience the beauty of the mountains and rugged nature. A pre-wedding or engagement shoot is the perfect way to announce your upcoming wedding to friends and family or to focus more on you as a couple without having to worry about being overwhelmed on the big day. Traditionally, this has included a collection of photos, but with a pre wedding film there is an opportunity to add that extra flare to an upcoming wedding in the form of video invites, teasers and so much more. We’ve had the pleasure of shooting hundreds of weddings and elopements in Queenstown and we can’t wait to bring the start of your wedding journey to life. There are so many wonderful locations within driving distance of Queenstown or Wanaka for your convenience. For those looking to add even more excitement to the day, there is an option to add a helicopter to your journey. Let us bring your day to life and tell your story.

Most couples choose to involve other services such as hair and makeup, a celebrant, helicopter tour and photographer. If this sounds like your jam, we are happy to recommend other wedding planning partners to help make your day perfect. For those wanting to have a video-centric pre-wedding or engagement shoot with minimal fuss, we can recommend local spots. For those wanting extra flare, we can arrange a helicopter to take you on an incredible private tour of the Southern Alps.

Once you decide that a pre-wedding film is right for you, the next step is to click our big red enquire button to check on availability and chat through the details. From the beginning we want to make sure we’re a good fit for you. We start by getting to know you as a couple and getting a sense for what kind of film you’re after and what fits best with your plans. We love to hear all about how you met, what brings you to Queenstown for your big day and anything else you want to share (embarrassing anecdotes are welcome but not required). On the day, we take a relaxed approach to ensure you’re comfortable and looking fabulous on film. Throughout the day we get to know you a bit better and witness your story in action. Having the experience with you on the day as well as what we chat about prior gives us inspiration for how to best reflect you both in your film.

We tailor each film around the couple so if there’s high energy and elaborate dance routines on the day, you can bet we’ll be keen to showcase that in all its glory. If the day is a bit more mellow, we’ll probably choose some different music and pacing (unless of course you request techno jazz throughout the ceremony). The day always goes by quickly and then we get to work hand crafting your film in post production.

The editing process involves going through all the footage in detail, establishing a story, adding some cinematic flare, choosing the best licensed tracks and of course applying our famous colour grade skills. This part takes the longest and since we know that waiting for your film can feel like an eternity, we do offer faster delivery options. Once we finish your final film, we send you everything in downloadable form so you can relive the day and share it far and wide.
