A Subtle Touch

Jul 26, 2017

The days of intrusive videographers are numbered as more and more couples opt for professionals who are adept at capturing the essence of their wedding day without being an obstruction to the couple and their guests. Modern and sophisticated equipment have rendered bright spotlights unnecessary and have provided the opportunity for seasoned professionals to discreetly film as the wedding day unfolds, blending into the crowd as seamlessly as possible.
