How long have you been a videographer? My husband Alex and I started the business 6 years ago. Alex has been fascinated with film since he was a teenager. He has a degree in Television Production from USF and a degree in film directing from Princeton University. My background is in public relations and entertainment, so we combined forces to form Voila Cinematic.
What attracted you to the wedding industry, specifically? We love the opportunity to make personal connections with our clients centered on such a personal special day- their wedding day. We enjoy getting to know each couple’s unique story so that we can transform that story into a sophisticated film that perfectly captures their love story.
What was your most memorable wedding? I would have to say our own wedding; was our most memorable- but as far as one we have shot, we had the amazing opportunity to shoot at the Biltmore in North Carolina recently. Shooting at such a beautiful location amidst such a grand setting was incredible. The couple really recognized the importance of film so they made sure they spent the time with us necessary to be able to capture their beautiful story. They were also incredibly sweet- which always makes for a great day!
What would you say sets you apart? We believe that we offer a wonderful blend of artistic ability and customer service. It’s a rare thing to find a company that is able to do both well, but we truly desire for each couple we work with to feel like our only client and their film to be unique to their own personal love story and not a cookie-cutter wedding film.
If you could offer one piece of advice to every bride, what would it be? Take the time to meet with your videographers. Do your homework to make sure that your filmmakers are trained in their art and know how to handle stressful situations when they arise. Also, by allowing the filmmakers to get to know you, we are much more able to create a film that truly exemplifies your love and the nuances of your relationship.
Why do you love working with Event Design? We love working with Event Design because they are perfectly able to combine all of the elements of design and coordination to make the day extraordinary for the couple. Event Design always goes the extra mile to make sure both the clients and the vendors are well taken care of and well prepared for the event. They are wonderful people with great integrity and we always know that our clients are in great hands when working with Event Design.
