Today’s wedding videographer interview is with husband and wife team David and Briana of Perk & Pearl, based in Los Angeles, CA! Enjoy:
Tell us about your company, how did you get started?
We’re David and Briana, a husband and wife filmmaking team. Our first real video project was a documentary we shot in Ethiopia, but our own wedding in 2012 sparked our interest in wedding videography. Our global travels and documentary experience most definitely influence our wedding films, and our goal with each wedding is to capture the story of the day in an unobtrusive manner.

What are some things couples should look for when looking for a videographer?
Briana: Couples should make sure that the style of the videographer’s finished product—whether the video is trendy, smooth, homegrown, or journalistic—is one they’d like to apply to their own wedding. A videographer’s presence and personality day-of is also an important factor. After all, couples will be spending a lot of time on an important day with their videographer!
What is your favorite part of the day to capture?
Briana: I love shooting packed dance floors!
David: The look of excitement/nerves/anticipation on the groom’s face as he spots his bride walking down the aisle.
How do you feel videography has changed in the last few years?
David: Videography has changed in so many ways recently, but social media brings an entirely new dimension to how video is created, consumed, and shared. In our business, this means that in addition to the long-form documentary edit, we create a 4-7 minute wedding day highlights video that can easily be shared with loved ones across the country and the world.
Do you have advice for wedding videographers just starting out?
Briana: We’ve found it’s so important to get to know our couples so that we can truly customize their wedding film into a video that reflects them. Not to mention, we’ve ended up becoming friends with several of our couples along the way, which makes things so much more fun!
If you were to make a blooper reel, what moment that you’ve captured would make us laugh the most?
Briana: Hands down, Grandma of the Groom busting a move.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
David: It’s a challenge we love – but the process of condensing such a momentous occasion into video in a way that accurately represents the couple and their wedding is hard work!
