"Our photos and video are breathtaking. We even plan on showing the video at our reception for all those who could not join our zoom wedding. Both the photographer and the videographer were extremely easy to work with. I felt like I had known them for many years!" - Trisha
"Stephen, our cinematographer, made every effort to capture all the special moments and truly made me feel like a star. My husband and I had the BEST experience. I highly recommend the GHI and would give them 100 stars ⭐️ if I could" - Emily
For many couples, hiring a Cinematographer to capture their wedding day is an expense that feels out of reach. We are so happy to be able to offer a beautiful, quality, professional Cinematography package, that is not only amazing, but also affordable. A wedding highlight film is the perfect way to capture your day so that guests who weren't able to attend, actually get to hear your voices, see your emotions and feel as if they were right there with you. And years from now, you'll delight in looking back at your younger selves, hearing your pre wedding thoughts, and seeing the spring in your step as you made your way down the aisle. Stephen Tusing (our onsite cinematographer) and Heather Tusing (our onsite photographer) are a husband and wife team, well versed in working together to create the most beautiful memories for you, and we think with each passing year, your wedding film will become even more of a treasure. We invite you to take a look at some of our recent films below! Wedding Cinematography may be added on to any Elegance Elopement, Afternoon Tea or Boutique Wedding package.
We think a wedding Highlight Film is the perfect way to share the excitement of your special day. Long enough to capture all the best moments of the day, but short enough to easily share online and with friends and family! Most Wedding Highlight Films run about 10 minutes or so, each film varies slightly in length.
We are so excited to provide an affordable Cinematography option exclusively to our Golden Horseshoe couples. Included in the cinematography package is:
-up to 6.5 hours of onsite filming
-editing and creation of a high resolution Wedding Film
-fully licensed background music
-delivery via high resolution download
*please note that raw footage is not provided
Your completed Wedding Highlight film will be available about 4-6 weeks following your wedding day! Although we are happy for you to make requests prior to editing, we encourage you to understand that you are hiring us to create a film and use our creative vision to do so. We do not provide raw, unedited footage, as it does not represent our finished product. Once finished, you'll have the ability to save, download and share your film in whichever manner you like!
Couples are welcome to hire any vendors they wish for their big day! We aim to provide professional, affordable options for Photo and Video, but are more than happy for you to hire the outside vendors of your choice.
Please note that our in house Photography and Videography packages are only compatible with each other. If you are hiring an outside photographer, you'll need to hire an outside videographer and vice versa.
Our love for our couples and for helping them create a day that perfectly reflects them keeps us energized and always giving 110%
