I'm so excited that you're considering Familiar Joy for your wedding videography needs! I've been filming weddings as Familiar Joy since 2017, and I love that I get to call this my job. It's such an honour to witness so many amazing moments in peoples lives.
I have always been drawn to true stories - I studied documentary in university! I love stories with real people and real emotions - this is probably why I was drawn to shooting weddings. It helps that I'm also a hopeless romantic!
Having filmed over 100 weddings now, I am always excited to meet my next engaged couple. Could that be you?
To me, whether photo or video, what I produce is like a little mini documentary of a single day in your life. It’s not just a simple recording - I put time and care and effort into creating something watchable over and over again, like your favourite movie. That’s why I called my business Familiar Joy. When I'm working, the thing I’m most drawn to is the joy of a wedding day. They don't call it the best day of your life for nothing! When the couples watch their films or look at their photos again some time later, I want them to be reminded of that joy, to the point where they experience it all over again. An emotion you've felt before, it's familiar.
