Luma specialise in capturing your unique story, the intimate parts of your wedding day and hand crafting those moments into a creative, high quality, cinematic narrative that reflects and expresses all of the love and affection surrounding the most important day that you can spend with another person.
My passion for wedding videography actually came quite late, but my love for story telling and film-making in general came at the age of 16, when I was given my first video camera way back in 2002. For years I'd been working in the film and television industry on big budget productions but something just didn't feel right. I was feeling like a small cog in a huge machine; not really making films that were genuinely personal, emotional or sincere. Toward the end of 2015, after I had shot and edited a friends wedding film, I truly realised that wedding videos were providing me with everything that I had been craving for all of those years. I was out with my camera, having the freedom to do what I love - telling stories that matter; stories that are unique, stories that are personal, and stories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Having an inherently quiet disposition comes as a huge advantage when working as a wedding videographer. I have been on the other side of the camera plenty of times, so I know how uncomfortable it can be for some people. That's where I come in and do things differently.
My goal is to make you feel at ease and capture those important moments naturally and honestly; so discretion is key. I'm always in the background observing the moment for what it is. So while you're enjoying the biggest day of your lives together you won't find me being obtrusive, demanding or distracting - leaving both of you to relax and enjoy your wedding day just like you should.
With all of that said, I should mention that I am also a very proud husband to my amazing wife, Lois, and by the time we we're married we had been together almost ten years to the day! We had the best wedding we could have wished for and, having filmed and experienced so many other peoples weddings as a part of what I do, I knew the importance of capturing the day. Despite being uncomfortable in front of the camera, knowing that memories fade over time was enough for us to book someone to shoot our wedding video. Here's a quick glimpse below.
