Crafting a Unique Wedding Film through Story Sessions


What is a story session?

St Simons Island Engagement Session

You want a unique wedding film to showcase your once-in-a-lifetime event, and you deserve a stunning film that tells your love story. While traditional wedding videography is great, there’s another way we have found to add extra depth and dimension to your wedding film. This is where “Story Sessions” come in.

These sessions are more than just videography; they’re a chance to capture the essence of your love story in a personalized and meaningful way. Whether it’s a romantic date or a sunrise adventure, Story Sessions offers a special opportunity to create moments that will forever be captured on your wedding film.

So let’s take a closer look at these options for Story Sessions and how they can make your unique wedding film more personalized to you.

Before the Big Day

A story session before your wedding can be a great way to create anticipation before the big day. These shoots, which usually take place a few months or weeks before your wedding, help document your love and connection in a more laid back environment. Here are some reasons why a story session is a must for your unique wedding film:

1. Capturing Genuine Emotions

Story sessions give you a chance to capture real emotions. It’s a time when you can be yourselves, relaxed and carefree, without the stress of the wedding day. The smiles, laughter, and tender moments you share during this session will add depth to your wedding film.

2. Your Love Story with a Unique Location

Your love story is unique, and the story session is an opportunity to tell it. Choosing a sentimental location can be a great option to personalize your film. Whether it’s revisiting the place where you first met or a place that celebrates your shared hobbies, choosing a location that is meaningful to you as a couple can personalize your wedding film and make it truly your own.

3. Get to Know Us

Working with us as your wedding videographer during a story session helps build a rapport. You get to know us better, and we get to know you! Which leads to a more relaxed and enjoyable experience for you on your wedding day. This added level of comfort from familiarity before the big day results in even better footage for your film because you and your partner are more relaxed and open to being filmed.

4. Your Story in Your Own Words

One of the most important pieces of the story session is the audio we collect. We will put mics on both partners and ask questions to prompt you to tell how you met, what you love about your partner, and what you’re most excited about. You get to reminisce together and we weave that audio footage into your highlight film to craft the story in a way that feels personal to you.

After the Wedding

Another option for story sessions is an after the wedding shoot! Some couples prefer this to take the pressure off! And as an added benefit, you can wear your wedding fit again if you choose, maybe this time styled a little more casually with a different vibe 🙂 What bride doesn’t want an excuse to wear her dress again?!
