Intimate Music Venue Wedding (16)

Intimate Music Venue Wedding (7)

This unique, intimate wedding comes to us from Marisu and Shannah of  ZoomWorks, based in Athens, Georgia! Here’s what they have to say about this beautiful wedding and the happy couple:

Robby and Anna spent time in the music world of Athens, Georgia, getting to know each other better when they played together in a band there. They had planned a trip together to San Francisco, and it was there, while walking the beach with their dogs in Carmel, that Robby asked Anna to marry him. They chose a music venue because they felt that reflected them as well as their relationship. It just seemed fitting. Their love of music and cycling was carried through the wedding design in their guest gifts: guitar picks made with their names and the wedding date along with an image of a tandem bicycle.

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Detroit, MI: Sculpted Films (1)

Meet a Wedding Videographer in Detroit, MI

Today’s videographer interview Brittany and Alex of Sculpted Films, based in Detroit, Michigan! Enjoy:

Tell us about your company, how did you get started?

Me (Brittany) and my fiancé (Alex) both went to different liberal arts colleges, Alex studied sculpture (hence the name), animation, and film editing, and I studied creative writing. For two years we lived in New York City primarily working jobs unrelated to our studies – I waited tables and was an urban farmer for an upscale restaurant on the East River while Alex worked at a frame shop in Brooklyn and performed freelance video work on the side. Our schedules were so opposite that we rarely got to see each other and we always talked about how great it would be if we were able to work together and we often spoke of one day owning our own business – an idea that seemed like something far in our future.

Then in December of 2013 we had friends visiting and these friends happen to make up the Michigan indie folk band, Less is More. They were telling us about the 3 ½ month long U.S. tour they were planning on embarking on in the fall of 2014 to promote their first album to which we of course said, “Wow, I wish we could do something like that,” to which they replied (probably jokingly,) “You should come with us!” The more we thought about it the less is seemed like a joke and it started to make a lot of sense – I would get to use my creative writing education for their PR and website copywriting, etc, and Alex would film our journey and make music videos, video blogs, and eventually a documentary of the tour. It seemed like the perfect launching pad into the next phase of our life even though we have no idea exactly what that phase was going to entail. On the road was where we realized how two creative minds are better than one while filming and editing and the prospect of working together as a videography team started to sound not so crazy.

Our chance to work together and work for ourselves came to us much earlier in life than we expected. On January 1, 2015 we officially became an LLC and we filmed our first wedding ten days later. We’ve hit the ground running working on filming more weddings, styled shoots, and promoting our business like crazy and though we are busier than we’ve ever been, it’s different when you are busy working for yourself and every hour that you put in is directly furthering your business and furthering the possibility of us continuing to do what we love.
