Wedding videography has changed drastically over the last ten to fifteen years. If you hadn’t considered adding videography budget, you might reconsider after this post. Today we’d like to introduce Seth Stafford from Sea Isle Films. Sea Isle Films specializes in natural and candid wedding videos. Be sure to check out the preview video at the end of this post.
- What is your story? How did you get started/Do you have training? For the past 15 years I’ve traveled the world as a professional travel photographer, where i learned to shoot on the go and go with the flow. Over the years I have photographed many weddings but recently I have realized that i really enjoy the storytelling quality of video.
- Where is your favorite venue and why? The Abbie Holmes Estate is a fantastic venue. They have the facilities for Preparation, Ceremony and Reception all on the same grounds which makes the day much less hectic. A quaint site with a friendly staff.
- What would you want to share with prospective future clients? Enjoy your wedding day and let your videographer capture all the fine details of your big day, so you can relive it forever.
- Where are you based out of and how far do you typically travel for clients? I live in southern new jersey just inland of stone harbor. I love to shoot within driving distance of my home.
- What are tips to have a stress free wedding/event?Controlling everything is impossible so smile and enjoy all your hard work. Once you see all your friends and family together smiling and laughing on your big day you will forget all about the stress of planning your wedding.
- What is your favorite thing/person/place to film?Definitely my son is my favorite person to film. He constantly amazes me!
- Many people have an outdated idea of videography. How would you explain the difference between that outdated idea and what you offer?
Traditional wedding videos lacked feeling and emotion. They were very slow and hard to watch more than once. The films were hard to share and usually just collected dust on the bookshelf. We try to capture every detail of the day with a photographic eye and edit it into a finished product full of energy and easy to share in this smartphone era.
- What is your favorite moment of a wedding? My favorite moment is when the bride and groom finish their first kiss and walk down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife. They always look so happy and relaxed at that moment.
- What would you want to tell yourself 5 years ago as a business owner? Communication and organization are the keys to happy growth.
