Info

Thunder Bay is my home, but I will travel pretty much anywhere!

When I'm not shooting weddings, I love to travel the world. So if you’re getting married anywhere outside of Thunder Bay; a remote island, on top of Banff mountain, in the middle of the prairies, anywhere in the US, Mexico, South America, Europe, etc…. Bring me with you!!

What could be better than combining the two things I love the most, weddings and travel, and sharing that with you?!

Since every destination wedding is so different, please send us a message so we can discuss the details further.

How long have you been in business?

Before Cascades Photo + Video opened in 2017, I ran Family Creative Imagery in Vancouver, BC in 2009. With the help of my old business partner, I shot an average of 20 weddings per year, and with those years under my belt, I’ve got systems and checks in place to make sure that you have the best experience possible working with me.

When will we receive our photos and/or video?

For Love & Adventure sessions you will receive your online photo gallery within 4 weeks. For weddings, online photo galleries and wedding videos are usually delivered in 6-8 weeks. Wedding Heirloom Albums are delivered 3-4 weeks after you approve the design.

What is a Love & Adventure session?

A Love &Adventure session is basically an engagement photo session that allows us to spend a morning or evening together. We add a little adventure and fun into the mix!! (Note: Alcohol and food go well with L&A sessions!)

Do you provide the Raw footage/photos?

Just like an author of a book doesn’t hand out their rough drafts, and a painter doesn’t reveal their painting until it’s complete, I also do not let anyone see the raw footage or photos as it is not a complete representation of my work. I spend pain staking hours editing everything together so it looks perfect, and weaves into a story of your day.

What is a 20 min highlight VS a Full Length Film

Full Length Films contain about 85% of the footage shot on the day. I create a beautiful video montage of getting ready. The ceremony is cut together in its entirety, so you don’t miss a moment from the processional to recessional. Then I add in another montage from your photo session, of beautiful intimate moments, and fun behind the scenes. Finally, the video has everything important from the reception: the entrance, all the speeches in their entirety, cake cutting, and first dance, etc. The only footage that is cut out is usually redundant. In all the Full Length Film will encapsulate your entire wedding day completely, and usually ends up being 60 to 90 minutes depending on the length of the ceremony and speeches.

20 Minute Highlight is for those that don’t feel the need to have a Full Length Film. 20 Minute Highlights are snippets of all the best moments from the day, and cut together in a montage. They are ideal for smaller more intimate weddings with short ceremonies, and little to no speeches. Here is an example of a 20 minute highlight

Film Trailer is the short 3-4 minute videos that you see all over our website. They’re a beautiful way to relive your day over and over again, and to share online with family and friends!

Why should I get 2 photographers and/or cinematographers?

The short answer – because then we can literally be two places at once!

Photographers have such an amazing job, but it’s hard, and I literally need to be in two places at once sometimes. So having a right hand (wo)man that knows what they’re doing is crucial to insuring that you receive the quality of photos and album that you are expecting from me.

The reason my videos look cinematic is that I cut together two or more camera angles. If there was only one camera angle your ceremony would end up being one boring shot from the back of the aisle… You would miss all of the reactions, laughter, and happy tears. You obviously love our Film Trailers and examples you’ve seen so far for a reason, and we don’t want to compromise on that quality.

What is included in cinematography?

Available options include:
• Up to 12 hours of coverage
• 2-3 Professional Cinematographers — All with HD cameras, microphones, stabilizing equipment, etc.
• Full-Length Documentary Film — Typically 1.5-2 hrs in length. Includes a getting ready montage, the ceremony in its entirety, a montage of the photo session and cocktail hour, all the reception entrances, speeches, first dance, father/daughter & mother/son dances, etc.
• 20 Min Highlight Film —All the best parts from your wedding day.
• Trailer Film — A short film trailer of your wedding day you can share online with friends and family
