Your life is a story.

How you tell it matters.

This is so much more than a video. This is the story of your greatest adventure.

WHEN YOU FILM YOUR ELOPEMENT OR WEDDING, YOU CREATE A LIVING HEIRLOOM FOR GENERATIONS TO KNOW WHO YOU WERE AND HOW YOU LOVED. THIS IS NOT A WEDDING VIDEO, IT IS YOUR TIME CAPSULE.

We’re here to do so much more than Film your wedding. We are here to bottle up the absolute Essence of who you are, and help remind you what love looks like for years to come. We’re here to wave your banner–to help you experience a day that 100% represents who you are! We are here to make sure that you can relive your day, and the way you felt, forever. We’re here to help you make your love story, and how you tell it, whatever you want it to be!

What does that mean? Like, if you’re adventurous, go have an adventure! If you like traveling, take a road trip! Somewhere along the day or four of fun you’ll bind your souls in a marriage ceremony that completely encapsulates who you are and what you want to share together in life moving forward. Why not document the whole experience in a film that renders every blissful moment in beautiful artful motion? What if you still want a traditional wedding with your family and friends but want all the other experiences together too? We can do that!

Who says you can’t have a wedding film? It's SO much more than photography!

We are here to help you realize and capture not just your wedding, we’re going to help you tell your love story.

Every story is unique and beautiful, and it shouldn’t look like everyone else’s.

Your wedding film should capture you being your authentic selves without the stress and pressure of trying to look or act in ways that don’t represent you. We aren’t going to make you stand and pose all day. We’re hands-off once we get you in the right light and scene! Our job is to honor your uniqueness and leave you feeling acknowledged and seen in all your glory. We’re going to preserve this piece of your adventure in a film that honestly & artfully tells your real love story.

Your wedding film is so much more than just a wedding video–it is your legacy.

We have every option imaginable to capture your love story how you would tell it! Want us there for a sunrise beach session the day after your wedding? We’ve got you! Want us to come along on your epic 4 day road trip? Let’s roll! Just want a simple film that tells your story in 5-minute perfection with just one filmmaker? I’m there!

Wherever you choose to go, and however you choose to do it--honor yourselves and your love FIRST

WE ARE PEAR & THORN

YOUR STORY IS EPIC. OURS IS TOO.

Hi, I’m Samantha, but you can call me Sam! There’s so much to know about me and my team, but likely the most important thing to know is that I love stories about love. I really love the stories that turn into the love story.

I know a good story when I hear one.  Mine is pretty epic, too. It is full of highs and lows, love and loss. Every single moment has helped make me into the person I am today. I’m proud as hell of it all–even the bad. Why tell you all this? It’s why I do what I do. My story shaped me, and so does yours.

You might not realize it yet, but you’ve got a pretty amazing story, too. You went through something incredible (for the good or the bad) that started you on the path you walk now. Take a moment and think about the outline of just the life you’ve lived. Now think about the life you share with your partner. Pretty cool, huh? Don’t you think it’s worth telling? What if you could bottle it all up–all the emotions, sounds, colors and feelings. Did you know that capturing your story in film is truly the only way to remember it as closely as experiencing it all over again? Pictures won’t record the tremble in your voice when you promise each other forever. Film can. It does.

It’s time to get a little real. You need MORE than photos to preserve the most pivotal time in your lives. You need to record it. You need a storyteller. You need me.

Still with me?

You need a film

To remember the Best version of yourselves

The truth about your wedding film:

This may be a bit bold of me to say, but I’m going to say it anyway. This film could save your marriage. Yeah I said it

This film could Save your marriage

One day you will watch your wedding film and you may not be in the best place. You may be questioning everything. On that day, watch your wedding film. Watch your wedding film and relive all of the reasons you chose to do life together. Watch your wedding film and see how she couldn’t take her eyes off of you. Watch your wedding film and remember how good it felt wiping tears from his cheeks as he said his vows—tears he shed for you. For your love. Watch your wedding film and know that the clips of your loved ones allow them to live on for your children to see them and know them when time didn’t allow it. Watch your wedding film and see just how far you have come together. Realize that you aren’t as far from who you were after all.

Wedding Videography vs. Film

You might not actually have a clue when it comes to what wedding videography is. That’s ok, you aren’t alone!

Videographers are technicians. Filmmakers are Artists.

What makes us as filmmakers different? Lots. But let’s start with a couple things. We do not simply show up and record the events of the day. We get to know you–the foundations of who you are and why you’re in love and we strive to anchor your film in that love. We do not take gratuitous footage of your venue. We couldn’t care less about the building or the things. If you care about the things, we will definitely film the things, but we have a feeling you’re more into the things that matter, right?

What do we care about? You. We care about YOU and making sure your story and your next step into your marriage is Honored. It couldn’t be more important to us. That is why we strive to film your wedding in a way that compliments you. We do not strive to do what other videographers are doing. We portray your day your way.

You deserve a film that

Encapsulates your story in perfect Artistry

Your Story's beautiful and your film will be too

This ain’t our first rodeo. We’ve been around since 2013 and we’ve filmed weddings across the globe.

We’ve been featured by Junebug Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, Southern Weddings Magazine and most recently recognized in the top 10 wedding filmmakers of Florida by Love Stories TV.

We’ve filmed high budget weddings and no budget weddings. What do they all have in common? Love? ok Duh, but besides an awesome story, all of those weddings came away with a timeless piece of art their families cherish to this day. Our films are artistic, organic and authentic. You want a time-capsule of memories to cherish for years to come in the most beautiful rendering we can dream up. You want something that represents your love artistically and compliments your story without embellishment. You want to remember an important time in your lives and preserve your greatest adventure in a fully-immersive media. Hi! That’s what we do! And we do it really well!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

01

How do we reserve our date?

We only take a small number of reservations per year, so if we have your date available we then need to chat and make sure we are a good fit for each other! Once you have decided on the film package you want, we will send you an electronic contract and invoice. Your signed invoice and 50% non-refundable retainer is required to block the date from our calendar.

02

Do you allow rescheduled dates? Is there a fee?

Due to COVID-19 we have experienced a high number of rescheduled events. As long as we have the rescheduled date available we are happy to move the contract to that date. However, we will charge a reschedule fee if the event is rescheduled more than once.

03

Do you have travel fees?

Think of us as Amazon for weddings–We ship for free!

04

Will our film have narration?

We want your film to tell your story how you would tell it! If you like the idea of your vows or other spoken pieces of your date being the narration of your film then we will certainly use them. If you don’t want narration at all, we can do that too! We want this to be your dream film, so the sky’s the limit on what you can dream it to be.

05

Do we really need a whole day of filming?

We think the best stories are ones that are complete from beginning to end. Some of the best moments of the day happen before any of the formalities take place. This is why all of our packages are eight hours. We don’t like to compromise on this because your story deserves our time and your memories shouldn’t be limited by hours.

 

06

Who gets to choose the music for our film?

We must license music in order to use it within our films and we have two databases from which we select tracks. We like to choose music based on the footage and the story, and it’s very hard for couples to pick music without seeing the whole picture together. We ask that you trust us in selecting your music, but if it is very important that you choose, please let us know ahead of your event. We will of course get to know what genres you like and don’t like before we start the selection process.

07

When will we get our film?

We deliver edited films between 8 and 16 weeks depending on the time of year. The holiday season is challenging and can lengthen the wait time. This is why we encourage couples choose packages that include a social media teaser delivered within a week of the event.

08

Do you provide drone footage?

Two of our packages include drone footage but we cannot guarantee we will be able to fly the drone on the day of your event. The weather, time available and geolocation all play a part in our ability to collect aerial footage. That said, we always opt to do it when we are able!

09

Can we get raw footage?

Yes! Complete Raw footage (unedited, uncolored clips) can be purchased and loaded onto a hard drive for $800 if not already included within the selected package.

10

Can I add more time to my package?

Yes! We charge $250 per hour added outside of the 8 hours included in our packages.

11

Do you charge sales tax?

It’s tricky. If we deliver your films via the internet, no, we do not have to charge sales tax. If you opt to have raw footage delivered on a hard drive then yes, we must charge sales tax based on the complete total if the selected package.

12

What is the Documentary Film? Is there a way to see all the events of the day in one film?

Yes! We call this the Documentary Film. It is a cinematic edit of the day complete with music, narration, multi-camera edits of ceremonial moments, sound engineering and color correction. These edits are generally 50-90 minutes in length and can take up to a year to complete. This is the Documentary Film included in the Documentary Package.

13

What if we want to add a second shooter for either our video or photo package?

We are happy to add to our team! Having a second shooter guarantees more footage, secure angles and extra photographs of moments you might not be able to experience otherwise. We charge $450 per added team member and we can add a person up to two weeks before the event date in case you aren’t ready to decide if you need one at contract signing.
