Making your wedding
last more than a day

I'm John, and I really appreciate you reaching out and considering PGP Wedding Films for your wedding day!

Who am I, and do you want me around on your wedding day? It's a big question, and while we strive to be invisible during your wedding...I will be there.  Like many filmmakers, I got into this through a love of movies and TV, and you will definitely see a smirk of approval when you make an Office or Star Wars reference during your wedding day. I will also make sure to get any and all cute kids dancing at your reception, as they remind me of my kids!

I'm married to my wonderful wife, Carolyn, who allows me the time to get anxious before every wedding day, and two amazing kids, one who already has a camera in his hand and another who says she is going to be an "ographer" like daddy.

I love what I do because I know how impactful the people at your wedding are to you, and how big of a step it truly is to get married.  It's an honor to be the one responsible for not missing a moment that is important, and I take that responsibility very seriously.  I can promise you that I'll be doing all I can to make sure your film is a beautiful reflection of your love story (and if it's a summer wedding, I'll have the sweat to prove it!)

OUR PACKAGES

Q: Do I need a videographer? I have a photographer, isn't that enough?
A: The wedding videographer is saying you should have a videographer.  Shocking, I know! I don't think your photos will provide you with the same experience as a video (and vice versa). A photo is great for reminding you of the day, but a video immerses you in the sights and sounds of your day and can transport you back to your wedding.  I had one couple tell me that watching their wedding film was like being a guest at their wedding!

Q: You are there for eight hours and all I get is a five minute film?
A: I think the expectation of my parent's generation (and probably your parent's too) is a wedding video should be EVERYTHING from the day.  And we do offer that, but our focus is creating a film more about how the day feels than checking off boxes of things we need to get. The couples who work with us typically are looking for that cinematic take on their wedding day, which is why our packages center around our 5, 10, and 15 minute creative films.  With each package you get a little more documentary edits, and you can add-on any part of your day that you would like to have!

Q: What if we really don't like being on camera?
A: Our style is to be very low key, so other than a few moments during the day (doing your pre-ceremony letter readings, mic'ing you for your ceremony) we try not to make too many demands.  There's also so many important people you care about at your wedding, we become much less of a concern when you're in the moment, and that you have those moments to relive through your film!

Q: Will you work well with our photographers?
A: I plan too! And I always have in the past. Ultimately, both my team and the photographer's team are there to serve you, so it's our job to work together to make sure that you are getting the best images.  I try to touch base with your photographer ahead of the wedding so we can chat and get a feel for each other!

Q: What happens if you are sick on our wedding day?
A: So far, that hasn't been an issue (I'm knocking on wood as I type this). I would do everything I can to provide a replacement who could handle everything without an issue.  That's one of the advantages of having two filmmakers on your package as well - if one of us gets sick, the worst case scenario is the other would have to cover things by themselves.  If we are unable to provide a replacement, I would refund you 100%.

Q: When will we get our final films?
A: There are lots of variable.  We guarantee delivery in 3 months after the wedding day, but typically we deliver your final film in about a month.

John's work was absolutely fantastic, we are so glad we took the leap to hire him and his team for our wedding. He went above and beyond to deliver us an amazing finished product that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

NATALIE & ERICK

Our video was everything we could have wanted and more!!! It was so artistic and beautiful, and it captured the fun and romance we wanted to portray on our wedding day. John got a great sense of who we were as a couple and did an excellent job of making the video perfectly us. John is creative and passionate about what he does, and it shines through in the details of his work. Thank you John for all of your hard work!! We are so happy to have our wonderful highlight film to remember our big day for many many many years to come!

JENNY & KEITH

Where do I begin?!?!?! John was FANTASTIC from the start! The decision to get a videographer for our wedding was a decision we kept going back and forth with for many months (mostly due to budget). After searching many forums on Wedding Wire, The Knot, Google, etc. almost every bride that didn’t go with one regretted it big time. I now understand what they were talking about as he captured so many moments that were already forgotten about only 1 1/2 months after...John and his assistant were so fun to work with the day of and his work is simply breathtaking. I really cannot thank John for making this decision so easy for us and delivering such a precious piece that will forever be one of our favorite memories as husband and wife. If you are debating .... stop hesitating and choose Pure Genius!!!!!!!!!

Think We Are A FIT?

You know you HAVE to have us be a part of your wedding - so here's what the booking process looks like:
-Tell me the package/options you would like
-I'll send over a contract and invoice for you.  The invoice is 35% of the total due to reserve your day.
-The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding

After that, I'll be sending you some tips and tricks to help you as we move closer to the wedding, and I always want to talk about two weeks prior to the wedding to go over your timeline and identify any potential issues. At any point, you can reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
