Is a wedding film for me?
Watching video so much more of a emotional experience from looking through photographs: have you ever got the feels Watchung a strangers wedding video? Being able to witness a moment or action in real time - the emotion unfolds on your partner's face, the swirls of your first dance. These actions can be captured in photographs, but the fluidity of the moment, the reactions, and emotions - it is very hard to capture all of that in an image. With video, however, you can experience the moment as though you were there, with all its little nuances. Video captures a person’s mannerisms - The subtle movements and characteristics of a person that make up their personality. The way they tilt their head when they listen, or talk with their hands, or shyly smile, or twist their hair. Again, a still photograph may capture more broader actions, but those teeny tiny expressions are something that can only really be caught when you are continuously filming someone. The process of emotion - of these instances may have a peak emotional moment, but really, all these instances involve a range of emotion - from ramping up to recovery. With video, you as a viewer can experience the entire journey of the emotional moment. Audio is where video really excels in transporting us back to a memory. Hearing the voices of people, we may not have seen for years, the ambient sounds of the environment that trigger our sense memory of that place. Hearing the voice of a child who is now grown. Sound takes the nostalgia to the next level. Finally, we couldn’t talk about video, particularly edited video, without discussing narrative. By choosing how to arrange the video clips into a particular order, the filmmaker takes the viewer on a journey. Photographs are wonderful to look at, but video is a moving transportive experience.

Stabby and Jason were a pleasure to work with. They made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Every second of our wedding video was captured and put together with care, creativity and an eye for all of the special little details. If I could do it all over again I would choose Heartistic 100 times over.

Stabby and Jason captured our day perfectly. We are thrilled with our videos. Memories for life. Thank you, thank you! x

We were blown away by our STUNNING photographs and our out of this world Montage and Mini Film! Stabby and Jason made the whole process so easy, especially whilst trying to get married during a pandemic and postponing our day so many times! Thank you Stabby and Jason for being the best!
"We were absolutely delighted when we bagged Heartistic Productions to capture our wedding... considering they are based in South Africa! We first met Stabby & Jason at our close friends wedding. Being one of the bridesmaids at that wedding I got a glimpse of some of their videography before their day & understandably recognised how incredibly talented they're work is and why they were flying them over. So the moment I got my chance too, I jumped in to ask them to capture our big day too, six months later- We were thrilled when they agreed to fly over! Not only are Stabby & Jason reliable, professional, and incredibly talented and committed at what they do- they are also awesome people too, and they felt more like guests on the day! We feared that we wouldn't be able to stop and take it all in and the day would soon fade from our memories. Myself & Jack therefore want to thank you both for capturing all the raw emotions, laughter and love so perfectly. We have had so many compliments from friends, family and colleagues. I have watched our video so many times already, and it will forever be treasured. We couldn't recommend Heartistic productions enough!'
Stabby and Jason are the most epic team ever for wedding videos! I selected Heartistic because of their creativity and videography style! Stabby was so quick to respond to all my emails and made me feel so calm as a bride during Covid. On the day of our wedding Stabby and Jason had such an amazing energy and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Heartistic truly captured all our special moments of the day and we cannot be happier with our Montage and Mini Film! Stabby kept me up to date post the wedding on when we would receive all of our material and was extremely professional throughout our journey from start to end! If you want the best wedding video and a film that captures your day perfectly- Heartistic is the team to go for ♥️ Thank you Jason and Stabby!
