*first kiss films*

This past February I participated in Ottawa’s first indie wedding show Wed by Hand.   In my opinion there were a few vendors that really stuck out in creativity and professionalism.  Bridget Redmond of {First Kiss Films} is one of them.  Since my husband and I never had a cinema documentation of our special day, we plan on doing so when we renew our vows on our 10th anniversary {5 more to go}.  In the meantime I may just have to hire her for a small documentary of a jewellery photo shoot.  Bridget’s work is beautiful with a classy vintage feel.  In her own voice here is what to expect from {First kiss Films}.
Nothing compares to the richness of film – classic, gorgeous and decidedly flattering.  { First Kiss Films } are shot entirely on the beautiful and timeless medium of 8mm and 16mm film stock, in either colour and/or black and white, using traditional cinematic techniques. Your final 5 – 15 minute film will deliver an experience that transports you back to all the emotions you experienced providing an artful and nostalgic retelling of your wedding day. Set entirely to carefully selected music, your wedding film will be an heirloom that you and your family will cherish for generations to come.
Lead filmmaker Bridget Redmond explains the filmmaking journey: “To ensure your wedding film reflects your personality and tells your unique story, I prefer to meet with the bride and groom at least twice before your big day in order to get to know you, your tastes and expectations. During multiple meetings we discuss your film, plan locations, talk about your specific requests and any ‘must have’ shots you would like in the final edit. Each film is unique and the more I know about you, your family and all your wedding day details the better I can create a film that captures your unique story. Once the film is shot it is processed, digitally transferred and edited. When the edit is complete, you’ll receive two finished copies beautifully presented in a stylish DVD package.”
Bridget knows how excited newlyweds can be to see their wedding film so       {First Kiss Films} are available within 45 days of your event instead of the 90 day standard.
