I have no power against this bitter cold,
this weakness and this trembling, I am old;
who am I, why do I wait here, what have I lost?
nothing or everything but I gain this

WEDDING SHOWREEL

TIME

One of the aspects of being a destination videographer that I really enjoy is that I often get the chance to meet interesting people from all around the globe and to travel to some of the most amazing locations worldwide to film their stories. For me it is very important to have the artistic freedom to design on a white canvas and tell a moving story that potentially other people are going to connect with. It is always a great challenge, but it is also a great stimulation of creativity and the main reason why I have chosen to become a wedding videographer. So, here is my Destination Wedding Filmmaker and Elopement Videographer Showreel. A collection of my “best” video moments, combined together to tell another story. A bit of my own story. A poetry about the concept of time. Watch the film above then keep on reading to discover the ideas behind the film.

This year has been a blast. I have met new people, and lived unforgettable moments. Embarked on 18 planes and missed twice my flights (yes shit happens).

I have received more than 30 awards from international film festivals and a few more from the most important professional associations. The year has ended in the best possible way by receiving 2 Golden Lens awards and being elected as International Videographer of the Year by Inspiration Photographers. One of the most prestigious International Professional Associations counting more than 2.000 members worldwide.

Destination wedding filmmaker & elopement videographer showreel: a story on the concept of time

Is time an illusion? Do multiple realities exist in the present? Is time even real? Can we freeze it or travel backwards to relive the moments? In our conventional way of thinking and within our finite conception of reality, our perception is that events are ephemeral. But when we experience the strongest of emotions we may feel momentarily that we can reach eternity.

Crafting a destination wedding film can be considered as a possible way to freeze the feeling and make it somewhat eternal. One moment can be so short, but at the same time one single moment can contain an infinite sequence of events and emotions…

Wow, that one greek wedding looks like right out of the set of Mamma Mia! This is amazing and makes me want to marry right now just to be able to book you for it. Amazing work, well done!

Thank you so much for these words Flavia. Filming destination wedding videos all over the Greek islands I get to see a lot of weddings that are inspired by the film Mamma Mia. Thankfully, because this is an awesome movie.

This is such a beautiful piece of art! You have gone on such amazing adventures with the couples you work with and have compiled the footage into something truly unique and beautiful. Congratulations!

The feeling that other people do connect with a story that you tell is really rewarding. When that particular story starts as an inspiration from your own personal experiences or thoughts and imagination, this feeling becomes even stronger and meaningful. For me this is the essence of creativity. Thank you straight from heart Jessica for your kind words!

These photos and your films are amazing as always
