April 9, 2019
After months of keeping it a secret from my friends and family, I can finallllly announce that Dear Darling Films is open for business!
Someone pinch me.
Those who have been following me for quite some time know that running my own business was always part of the plan, but, quite frankly, I didn’t expect it to happen so soon. After working as a freelance corporate video producer for many years, I randomly came across a wedding video on YouTube that flipped my world upside down—and in that moment, I decided that I wanted to become a wedding filmmaker. To gain experience in the wedding industry, I spent all of last summer shadowing and learning from some of the leading wedding filmmakers and mentors in the Ottawa area, and I set off to film my very own wedding in the Fall.
The release of my first wedding film led me to book 11 weddings for 2019, at which point I was forced to turn down additional weddings because of my 9-5 job. I still can’t believe it! These 11 couples will be the first-ever Dear Darling brides and grooms, and I truly consider myself blessed to capture their love and to tell their stories. I have said this many times before, but the fact that I get to capture love for a living honestly gives me goosebumps in the best way possible. Being a wedding filmmaker just might be one of the most fulfilling jobs out there, seriously.
If you’re just finding out about us, I’ll keep it short and sweet: here at Dear Darling Films, we’re all about working with fun-loving and adventurous couples with a wicked love story to tell. We put our heart and soul into every wedding film to ensure that our films feel authentic and true to our couples. Most of our weddings at this time take place in the Ottawa and Toronto area, but don’t let that stop you from reaching out if your wedding is taking place elsewhere! I encourage you to take a look at our website for more details about who we are and how we can best serve you.
Stick around, because we will be hosting a huuuge giveaway next Wednesday, May 8th!!
Lots of love,
The Dear Darling Team
