With the amount of experience Cheryl Meier of AWC Films has, couples trust in her completely. She has seen how things have changed over the years, so knows exactly how to make a quality, timeless video for her couples. Read on to learn more in this week’s Know Your Pro…


Bustld: What do you think makes you different in your field?

Cheryl: The biggest thing is my experience. A lot of videographers are just starting out or cap out at five or six years. The videography industry has been through so many changes and trends, so I know what is timeless. I balance trends with timelessness and have stay power for over the years.


Bustld: How would you describe your style and ideal couple? 

Cheryl: My style is a blend of traditional, leaning toward rustic. My favorite weddings are farm weddings. It’s somewhere between a venue and the environment. I do shoot a lot of traditional weddings, too. I love traditional weddings with rustic elements included.


Bustld: Why do your clients hire you? 

Cheryl: It’s the quick turnaround time I have. Everything is done in three to four weeks from wedding day.


Bustld: What is the best part of being a videographer?

Cheryl: I’m filming happiness. Wedding day is such a joyous occasion and I love being able to be a part of a happy occasion.


Bustld: What's your favorite moment on wedding day?

Cheryl: The vows, especially when they are handwritten ones. I catch myself smiling without realizing it.


Bustld: How long have you been in business? What is your business back story? Why weddings?

Cheryl: I was going to college to be a computer animator. I wanted to work for Pixar. As a part of the curriculum I had to take a video production course and I fell in love. I was always found in the video lab. I was also planning my wedding at the same time, so I was getting a taste of the wedding world. I had friends who filmed my wedding and I edited it myself. After that, I started filming for friends and built the rest from there.
