Your big day isn't just one day. It is a culmination of all your previous days together. Your first date, that first kiss, your first adventure together, or that one time you both tried that new recipe and totally botched it (it was harder than it looked). It's every good, bad, intimate, and fleeting moment you've had together. The best part? It's still just the start. You have a unique story together, and this is the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next. I want to tell that unique story in a way that is a reflection of who you both are and what's most important to you. Whether that's using old phone footage of your dates together, your shaky proposal video, old home movies, or just the wedding day itself, I strive to craft a true heirloom film for you that can be enjoyed for generations to come. This is your story so far! From that first moment together, all the way to those two words that mark the start of your next chapter- "I do!"
When I was planning my wedding, I kept going back & forth on whether or not to hire a videographer, but I'm SO glad that I did, and even more glad that I chose Wild Fern Weddings. Christian made sure to get to know me & my husband before the big day and was so easy to work with. I'm so impressed with the attention to detail + the way that so many moments, whether big or small, were woven together to tell our story beautifully (bonus points for getting footage of my dog in his ring bearer get-up). We're so glad that WFW was there to capture our wedding day, and we SO look forward to watching our film for years to come!

Weddings + elopements are what I love! There's just something about being able to witness the love that others share for each other, capture it, and create something that will outlive us as well as grow in value as time passes and it is shared with future generations. This is why I do what I do, and I LOVE what I do.
I get hundreds of inquiries a year and only take a limited number of weddings so that I can focus on each couple more in order to tailor a wedding film around their personal needs and their unique story. If I sound like a good fit so far, inquire as soon as possible so we can talk more in-depth and I can save your date on my calendar.
After inquiring, we will work together to set up a time to hop on a phone call or FaceTime and go over more details. I want to get to know you and your partner, how you met, how they proposed, and what's most important to you on your big day. All of this ties together to influence how I'll film and edit your wedding to customize it to you and your story.
After we've determined we're a good fit for each other, I will send over a contract & invoice to officially lock in your wedding date. You're now a part of the Wild Fern Family, and no one else can reserve your day!
On your wedding day, all you need to do is relax and take everything in. I will begin to film all the details and things that are most important to you based on our call. I capture candid moments throughout the day and may provide some general direction during the couple portrait session. I believe that you shouldn't have to stress about anything on your big day, so I am there to help you with anything I can, as well as capture the most important details so you can look back on them years from now.
Absolutely! I love to travel for weddings + elopements. However, I only do 5-7 of these a year. Let me know where you're saying your vows, and I can put together a custom package that fits your needs!
This depends on how valuable videography is to you. We only take a limited number of weddings + elopements a year. Because of that limited amount, it's first-come, first-serve. With that being said, even if you're not ready to book right now, still reach out and let's talk about your day and what our calendar is looking like for that year at the time of your inquiry.
A Discovery Session is a phone call to get to know you both a little more. Knowing your story, values, pain-points, and personalities helps me work more efficiently to tell your story and document the most important moments of your day so that I can be sure to deliver you a film that will only grow more valuable as time passes on.
A Storyteller is the person that will be there to capture your wedding day. I use this term because anyone can run to their local camera store, buy a cheap camera, and start calling themselves a videographer. However, we use professional gear and focus on using it to capture your wedding day and build the final film(s) around you and your partner's unique story.
All of this sounds great to you, so what's next? Reach out! I want to dive deeper into your unique story to be sure that I'm a good fit and can tell it the best. At the end of the day, my goal is to deliver a wedding or elopement film that will be cherished for generations! Knowing that you, your partner, and your loved ones have this special film to look back on is why I love what I do. My goal is to preserve those wedding day memories in a beautiful film, and that’s what I love most about my job!
