Calgary wedding videography isn’t all we do. We’re story tellers, and our wedding videos capture the story of your day: the emotions, the love, the laughter, the people.
I (Ewen) am the main wedding videographer at Ring Tail, and I have filmed over 200 Calgary wedding videos. Yet every wedding video is unique to me, and I always aim to portray you authentically as you are. I take the important moments of your day and weave in the intricate details such as the decor, the location, even a small glance between two people sharing a moment. I see a lot of beautiful wedding films that look like movies, where every shot is staged and planned. Sure they look nice…but if that was your day, wouldn’t you want to remember all the moments and emotions of your wedding day? Not just the glossed over, Instagram ready version? I aim to make a video that is real, but also beautiful.
I try to avoid staging things, or getting you to do the first look twice so I can get the right shot (gasp!). I like to anticipate the action, and make sure I am in the right place at the right time to capture authentic moments. I strive to be unendingly creative, and to make each and every wedding film my best work yet.
Wedding days go past way too fast. Trust me, I’ve been to a few. There is so much going on; so many old friends, so many close family members, so much fun, so much emotion, so much love.
It’s our job as wedding videographers to capture the true story of your wedding. Capture all the emotion, all the love, all the people. Capture all the moments, the vows, the moving speeches. Capture it all in a way that will move you, your friends, your family, and even people that don’t know you to tears when they watch the video of your wedding day unfold. That is our goal with every wedding video we make at Ring Tail Films.
That and raiding the candy buffet.
“Um…excuse me…can you just do your vows again? I’m afraid I missed that,” said no one at Ring Tail Films ever. We have back up cameras and microphones with us on your wedding day, along with excessive spare batteries and memory cards. We also keep two copies of your footage in different places once we start editing.
We are constantly improving our work and pushing ourselves with the goal of being the best wedding videographers in Canada.
We’re located in Calgary, but we don’t only do Calgary wedding videography. We also shoot Banff wedding videos, Canmore wedding videos, and regularly do Moraine Lake Elopements or Lake Louise wedding videos or Lake Louise elopement videos. We also visit the mountains of B.C. such as Invermere, Revelstoke and Kelowna to provide wedding videography services. We’ve also filmed destination weddings in Hawaii, Mexico and Phoenix and would really like some more of those! Especially in winter time please.
What is our style? Every wedding is different. We make our videos to capture you authentically. So, natural would describe our style, I suppose. But still cinematic. We’re always open to your suggestions and ideas about what you want, but we also have plenty of our own.
We’re not directing a movie, we’re making a wedding film, and most of the time you won’t even notice us doing our job. We’re just always sure to be in the right place at the right time. That’s what 10+ years of experience and over 200 wedding videos does for you.
Man that’s a lot of candy buffets…
With all of our packages you can choose between a USB flash drive and a BluRay disc. Or even a DVD if you really want (but maybe it’s time to get out from under that rock?). All of our wedding videos come beautifully packaged with as much care as we put into your editing your video. This is a memento of the biggest day of your life, after all.
We generally start booking at least a year in advance, so contact us early. We do book up completely each year. Shoot us an e-mail, contact us through the site, or give us a call – we can set up a meeting to get to know you and tell you more about what we do. It is also possible to do all the booking, contract, and payment through e-mail if you’re too much of a busy bee, or live out of town. We require a 50% deposit on booking.
Check out our prices and packages. If you don’t see something you like, or that doesn’t fit your wedding day, we can do a custom quote. Destination weddings are all custom quotes.
