a little bit about us lovebirds
HELLO, we’re Michael and Jamie
and we’re Wedding Videographers
Also known as Cinematographers, Filmmakers, Filmophiles, etc… We’re based out of the Calgary area and we love telling stories. Whether its through photo or videos, looking through the lens has always been a passion of ours and its something that we love sharing with others.
Michael’s the guy who started this whole thing. Cinematographer, Photographer, Editor, Website Designer, Marketing, and on and on. When he’s not working on our edits or filming our awesome couples, he’s behind his desk improving Stoney Trail, making sure the road’s are safe.
When she’s not second shooting for RFS or choosing our couples songs, Jamie’s busy nursing people back to health at both the Foothills Hospital and Peter Lougheed Emergency Unit (or being Michael’s emotional supporter, second in command and
Togther, Jamie and Michael make up the main team here at Red Finch Studios. In their off-time, they watch a LOT of movies (recent favorites include JoJo Rabbit, Parasite, & Marriage Story). Michael’s constantly bugging Jamie about why Parasite definitely deserved the Oscar for Best Picture, despite how much Jamie thinks Jojo Rabbit was the clear winner. When they’re not watching and arguing over movies, talking about how Scarlet Johannson and Adam Driver killed it in Marriage Story, they’re eating pizza at Una or having drinks at Eighty Eight Brewing Co (btw their “Good Mornin’ Coffee Stout is SOOO good)
If you made it this far, thanks for looking into us a little more and giving us a chance to film your super special day! We here at Red Finch Studios are always on the lookout for couples who love to collaborate and aren’t afraid to be themselves. Whether you’re a little shy on camera or love modelling for Instagram, we’ll make sure to make you and your S.O. look like stars in your own little Hollywood feature.
we don’t want you to take out a loan to fund your wedding
Every wedding has a budget and we understand that. If we had all the money in the world we would film your wedding on RED Monstro 8K camera’s, Zeiss Cine lenses, and a DJI Inspire 2 (total package price over $100 000) but that’s just not doable unless we’re in Hollywood (we still use good Sony camera’s, audio gear, and lighting to ensure your film is up to a certain standard). What we try to do here at Red Finch Studios is provide you a great narrative and story driven wedding film that won’t blow away your bank account and wedding budget. We’ll work with you and provide a custom quote that will fit most wedding budgets (starting at $2200). Our prices and packages can vary depending on what you want/don’t want in a wedding film so tell us more! We love to make new friends and we certainly hope to add you to our Red Finch Family.
Your wedding film is something that we hope you’ll watch over and over again, sharing it with all of your friends and family. We truly want you to see great value in your investment with us and we’ll work our hardest to deliver you something you’ll watch for the rest of your life.
