My philosophy as your Wedding Videographer in Lake Como
Because of my multi award-winning experience and aesthetically astute eye, I believe that I am the perfect videographer to capture your Italian destination wedding along the bountiful banks of Lake Como. The beautiful landscape and the luxury venues can be very inspiring. However my core philosophy as a filmmaker is that your wedding video should focus on you and your story, in the first place. As the premier wedding videographer in Lake Como, I will guarantee that you will forever hold the best memories from one of the most important days of your life captured in a personalized and authentic way.
Documenting the events exactly as they ocurred on your wedding day is probably what most videographers would do for you. But I guess that you are here because you desire a more subtle and personal representation of your special day. My manifesto as a wedding filmmaker is to tell your story as a couple through your wedding day, not simply the story of the day. This requires more dedication, empathy and connection but it’s also what makes things different and unique. This is what I will do for you!
“Let Kostas tell your story in his superb style. He is a great, kind, humble human who will really get to know you as a couple. He is not just a filmmaker who puts A roll and B roll together. He is an amazing storyteller!”Jo Mae & Greg
