Rather than simply capturing this one day,
I'm passionate about capturing and telling your entire story.
• Tell me what brought you two together.
• When did you know they were 'the one'?
• Who is here celebrating this milestone with you?
• Why are we truly here today?
See, I want to know and capture the heart behind this one day.
So that I can bring every element of your story to life.
Because your story began long before today.
And it will live on long after.
My love of story and filmmaking began at the age of ten when my uncle purchased a new VCR camera and bravely let us play and create with it. Countless memories and videos later, I realized that I was actually holding onto these memories I was making, these stories I was living, and the people in them that I loved so much.
Eventually, I not only became enthralled with filmmaking, but I built a successful career out of it.
And in 2007 that film career stumbled into weddings. A friend of a friend needed someone to film their big day and I was the man for the job. I never imagined that this one wedding would lead to over 600 couples trusting me with their memories. But, I'm so glad that it did.
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, which is why I like to make this process as streamlined and enjoyable as possible. I'll start by leaning into who you are and what's most important to you. Then I'll help guide you to what you most want and need. Using my experience, I'll provide insight and forethought as we think through and perfect your timeline. And I'm happy to provide recommendations and support however you need.
Like most couples, you're probably worried about minor hiccups and fiascos messing with your day. And you want to know that the experts by your side have got your back. Well, you're in good hands. After filming weddings for over a decade, there's not much that will surprise or throw me off. I know from experience what to do when the weather turns or the timeline runs behind. And I know how to make things look their best, no matter what.
Come wedding day, you'll already trust me and see me as an old friend or a part of the family, and I'll happily assume that role. I'll be sure to make you laugh, encourage you to breathe, and remind you of the significance of this day. And I'll go out of my way to be respectful and discreet. You’ll feel comfortable and free to stay in and enjoy the moments- while I capture them all on film.
There will be moments that you either don't see or that you might not think are essential to capture throughout your day. But I do. And as a professional filmmaker and nostalgic by nature, I anticipate and prepare for them all. You'll find that I gently encourage special moments between you and the ones you love. And I'm always on the lookout for the candid yet significant moments surrounding you. Not just because I know how beautifully they'll add to the story of your film. But because I know how much they'll mean to you long after today.
I learned early in life that diligence and determination bring results. And I bring that mentality into everything I do, which is why you won't see a one-dimensional, static formula running through my work. And you won't see the flashy new trends either. Because I don't create for the trends. That would be easy. Instead, I create classic, creative, and one-of-a-kind heirlooms. And I do it with diligence, creativity, and pride.
HOW I WORK
JOHN BUNN, IN REAL LIFE:
My wife and my two daughters are everything to me. When I film weddings, I think about their wedding days. And I understand and appreciate all over again, just how much this day means to you and your families.
After 15 years in the industry, I started sharing my knowledge with other wedding filmmakers in a podcast called How To Film Weddings. Now, tens of thousands of wedding filmmakers tune in each month.
From Italy to Mexico and across the United States, I've traveled worldwide, capturing love stories. There's just something special about experiencing new places with people from all walks of life. Where will we go next?
