1. Tell us about PhotoHouse Films?
This is a great story. We started the business in 2007. It was one person, one camera, one monopod, and a dream that we could create something that would be more than just the same old wedding film. A friend of our had been in the business and asked if we had ever considered trying to go full time after hearing my ideas about what and how we would create differently. We came home from our day jobs, told our wives & husbands we wer quitting and after picking them up off the floor, (JK) they told us, We know you can do whatever you set your mind to, and off we went. 800+ weddings later, I’m glad we took the leap of faith.
2. What separates you from your competition? What can you offer that no one else can?
PHF:– A Complete and Defining Story: There are so many “music wedding videos” out there today. With all of the new technology being the main part of the story through over use of slow-motion and drone, wedding videos today look more like aftershave commercials, that wedding films. Our focus will always be the story of the Bride and Groom. Everyone has an amazing story to tell, and we spend a great deal of time finding out what brought them to this day. It’s not only important, but one of the key elements to a unique and timeless film.
– A World Class Customer Experience: We won’t give too much away on this, but you have to be focused on more than just the film. To create an amazing film, you have to know your clients. Really know them. We have created the ultimate experience for our clients from the day they contact us well past their wedding day. Shhhhh. This is our best kept secret!
- Turnaround Times to Die For: Through a tremendous amount of work, we have been able to deliver these world class films in 30 days (Destination/Premiere ) 4-8 weeks ( Standard) 2-4 weeks (for photography) from the day of the wedding. Our clients love knowing they will be able to relive these moments while they are still fresh on their mind. Sharing this amazing day with all of their family and friends.
3. When you’re working on a wedding or event, how do you usually interact with the other vendors? What is your experience working with wedding planners?
PHF: It is absolutely crucial, and we love every second of it. When you can embrace the entire wedding team, and help bring out the best in all of them, it’s simply magic. We are pretty big pranksters, so we love to play small practical jokes throughout the day to keep everyone on their toes and keep us in the moment. Event Planners to us, are the coach of the entire day. Our job is to support their plan for the day, capturing the essence of what was created for their clients. A wedding can never achieve its ultimate vision without the orchestration of a world-class event planner.
4. How would you describe your style or aesthetic?
PHF: Ever changing. One of our great successes is we are fluid in style. We spend a great deal of time working with our clients on their vision not ours, creating what matters to them most. Our favorite style to shoot is one that gets better with time, not dated. Classic, real, timeless.
5. What or who inspires you in life and in your work?
PHF: That’s easy. Our Families. They are my rock and foundation. They are the greatest source of inspiration, love, and support. They keep us grounded and at the moment, and because of that, it allows us to dream the impossible dreams with our work, artistry, and life. This, in turn, makes us one heck of a videography company, but most importantly an amazing spouse, mother and father to our children.
6. How would you describe your creative process?
PHF: Ha! You are going to laugh at this, but what we do for every wedding is try to think of what could go wrong in the day, and then build in safeguards against them. We are a little OCD so the details are crucial for us. Once we have all of that worked through, We LOVE to think of ourselves as a guest attending the wedding, and film and edit through the eyes of that guest. Sometimes we're the mom, dad, sister, grandparent. Sometimes we're the bride, groom, etc.. you get the picture. We then think of everything we would want to see, hear, and feel throughout the day. It works for us this way, and hopefully, our films show it.
7. What’s your favorite way to unwind?
PHF: Spending every second we can with our families. We love them, and love doing everything with them. Specifically, we love to listen to music (albums of course) playing board games, dominoes, dancing, anything that makes us laugh and share in experiences.
8. If you weren’t a videographer/photographer, what would you want to do?
PHF: Tough one, but we would lean towards something that involved speaking and helping others. We love to be around people and could easily see us as motivational speakers!
