Bainis Films is a bespoke wedding cinematography company established in 2012. Our main objective is to create unique handcrafted and artistic wedding films, crafted in a style that we believe is approachable and simple but fulfilling for our clients and us.
At Bainis Films we have a passion for producing high quality documentary style videos at an affordable price. We believe in the art of storytelling. It’s the driving force behind everything we create. Filming all those great and small moments that happen and go by, the beautiful speeches and vows you make, the details from the getting ready to the late evening dance We pride ourselves on giving you more than just a recap of your special day. We embody emotion through moving images so you can relive it each time you watch.
Our business is all word-of-mouth. We do not pay for advertisements, buy e-mail lists, or send out mailers. We rely on the opinions and satisfaction of others.
Shooting a wedding is a lot more to us than just a business transaction – it is about the process of meeting new people, sharing stories and emotions. Our success is the result of the relationships we create with our clients and our ability to tell their unique stories. We look forward to telling yours.
Your wedding day should be just that. A wedding. Not a photo-shoot at which you just happen to get married. The couples who choose us want their shots to be an honest and authentic re-telling of the story of their wedding day. We like to work lightly, so we can move around and follow you instead of you having to follow me, thus allowing me to capture moments like they really happened.
Our documentary approach allows you to spend as much time with your family and friends as possible. Those are the unforgettable moments of your wedding. And it’s those moments that we’re there to film. This means that we won’t drag you around for hours and make you pose in a field.
In essence, we film the day from a guest’s perspective, and we’ve really made that work for us. It’s your wedding day, not a Hollywood production, so we actively make sure that throughout the day the videographer will blend with the guests, with minimal camera gear which is no bigger than that of a photographer. Strictly no clunky tripods and shoulder mounted cameras allowed; yet the quality of the footage we capture is superbly cinematic.
We look forward to hearing from you,
