We believe that your engagement and wedding highlight video is a movie trailer to your love story.
Typical wedding videographers are accustomed to showing up on the day of your ceremony for a few hours of wedding ceremony followed immediately by a reception. Imagine trying to convey the needs of a traditional South Asian Indian wedding to an unaccustomed, non-native photographer.
At Motion 8 Films, we specialize in capturing multiple events over several days. You have us from the moment we start an engagement shoot through the last moment of your reception.
Our wedding videography services are available to capture every moment that you want to memorialize forever.
