1. You book me….you get me

We are a boutique studio and we do not have […]

Tara + Andrew – Melbourne Wedding Videography

We received an inquiry via a referral at the end of April 2014.  Tara had seen our work via a friend who’s wedding we filmed.  However, at the time, Tara’s budget would prevent Hitched Productions from filming her and Andrew’s wedding ‘unless’ as Tara described ‘they won the lotto’.  We made a couple of suggestions […]

Wedding Styling – Melbourne Wedding Videographer

If 2013 was the year of the ‘photobooth’ then 2014 was the year of ‘styling’.  Sure styling at weddings has been around for a number of years but what once seemed to be something reserved for the most extravagant of budgets has now become more common.  This is due to numerous factors including increased competition […]

Tips – The Best Man’s Speech – Melbourne Wedding Videographer

As a Melbourne Wedding Videographer we see a lot of best man speeches. Some good, some…no so good and some that are just fantastic. This combined with the fact that I have been the best man at a couple of weddings myself I thought why not share some tips for the best man speech.

1. Plan […]

Courtney + Nick – Wedding Videography Melbourne

We packed our bags last weekend and made the trip up to Echuca to film Courtney & Nick’s wedding.  We decided to make a weekend of it and headed up Friday night so that we were good-to-go first thing Saturday morning.

Courtney & Nick’s family and friends did the same and it was a real party […]

Tammy + Shaun – Wedding Videography Melbourne

We love rocking up to shoot a wedding and seeing familiar faces.  Tammy and Shaun booked Hitched Productions to be their Melbourne wedding videographer due to referrals from Gloria & Sheldon and Libby & Chris whose weddings we filmed.

The ceremony was at the South Melbourne Greek Orthodox Church and we had the pleasure if working […]

Danielle + Chris – Wedding Videography Melbourne

I absolutely love it when brides contact me saying that they love our work and tear up watching other peoples weddings which we have filmed.  Always a good start when a client likes you work.  Danielle was one such client.

The risk with this is that when a bride-to-be knows what the standard of work is, […]

Tips for selecting a Melbourne Weddding Videographer

Congratulations!  You are engaged and you are definitely getting a wedding video.  You are about to enter into a fairly elite club.  Yes, you are part of what I estimate to be the 10% of couples who actually get a wedding video.  As a side note, getting a friend who studies film at University or […]

Claire + Tim – Wedding Video Melbourne

The beautiful Zonzo in the Yarra Valley was the backdrop for Claire & Tim’s wedding on 2nd August 2014.  To say it wasn’t cold would be a lie.  When you can see puffs of hot air coming out of Claire & Tim’s mouths as they said their vows, you know it is […]

The Benefits of a Pre-Wedding Shoot

All my clients will attest to me making the following two statements in the lead-up to their wedding.

One, don’t look at me.  Now, I mean this in a nice way.  I refer to the actual wedding day when we are filming.  I tell couples to only look at the camera if I tell them to and instead look at each other or the photographer.  I rarely ask them to look at my camera as my shooting style does not require them gazing into my lens.  Also, it can ruin both photos and video if the groom looks at the photographer and the bride looks at the videographer.

Secondly, I make it clear that I am much more comfortable on ‘my side’ of the camera as opposed to ‘their side’ of the camera.  Couples are often a little daunted by the thought of being the centre of attention.  This leads me to a discussion on pre-wedding shoots.
