For a high creativity level and a modern style, look no further than Pierre Pro Photos. They display as much raw emotion in every wedding video they produce and are constantly making each video better than the next.
Bustld: What do you think makes the company different than the competition?
Paul: Our style of editing and the company’s creativity level that we put into every wedding that we shoot is the difference between us and anyone else out there.
Bustld: How would you describe the company’s style?
Paul: Very modern. Not really in a pre-wedding, ceremony, etc. order. We like to display as much raw emotion in the video. Especially if they are reading letters or doing a first touch. We cut that into the entire video so that there’s constantly something to smile at and for the couple to be emotional over.
Bustld: Tell us about the company’s ideal client.
Paul: We’ve had the best luck with younger couples who want to do all the fun things, like letters and first looks. We’ve seen older couples who don’t really want to do as much of that. A younger, hipper generation/age group is ideal for us. Not saying, we won’t shoot for everyone, but we get the better footage out of the younger generation.
Bustld: Why do you think couples choose your company?
Paul: Going back to creativity and style of editing. Of course, we aren’t too hefty on the price, as well. Especially couples with micro-weddings are looking for more value in their wedding videography than paying top dollar. I get a lot for referrals and almost every couple that comes to me is excited about seeing the last video we just did and we always try to make the next one even better.
Bustld: What is the best part of being a wedding videographer?
Paul: The best part is being able to really be there for these couples’ days; to catch all that raw emotion, those candid laughs. We really stress more candid and more relaxed footage because it tends to be more natural and emotional. But capturing those moments, being able to convey to the client later, has a whole other level of satisfaction.
Bustld: What's your favorite moment on wedding day?
Paul: The reception. It’s when everyone loosens up. The bridal party loosens up and everyone relaxes. And that’s when the fun stuff happens. People start dancing. Second to that is probably pre-ceremony, because everyone is hanging out and there’s more laughing going on.
Bustld: Tell us about the company’s backstory. How long has it been in business?
Paul: I left an extremely boring desk job in April of 2018 and opened up the business. Started as real estate photography, then moved to wedding photography and kept getting approached about videography. I bought more equipment and made the leap at the beginning of this year.
Bustld: Tell us about your role at the company. If you are the owner, tell us about your background and how you came to be in the wedding industry.
Paul: I’m the owner of the company. When I graduated high school, I went to tech school to work on cars. I worked in dealerships for over 10 years and ended up behind a desk with an automotive job. I had an old Canon camera, an old yearbook camera I got from a high school that I didn’t need it anymore. I started playing with that and eventually bought a real camera in 2012 and it was all downhill from there. I did landscape photos and family photos and modeling and that led into weddings. All while working full-time. I thrive in the pressure of weddings. I live in those high-stress moments.
