Description

Hey! I’m Aaron Datu…

I’m a wedding filmmaker based in wichita, kansas and it’s no secret that I love what I do. I filmed my first wedding for a family member in 2017, and was immediately captivated with the entire process. I absolutely thrive on capturing all the emotion, the fine details, and the organic love throughout the air on your wedding day.

I consider this industry to be one of the most rewarding careers out there. I am given the opportunity to serve amazing and fun couples with a film that captures unconditional love and genuine happiness as it unfold right before me.

Your wedding day is incredibly important both to me and to you, as it should be. My goal as your filmmaker is to capture it in the best way I can. I also want your wedding day to be stress free and exciting, so I strive to be as unobtrusive as possible. In other words, it is my goal to make your wedding day look even better than it already will be.

FAQs

You really only get one chance to do it right! If someone else offers to film a full coverage day and throw in all the bells and whistles, at under $1000. I would be very skeptical. It would be a hit or miss on the quality of video you will be receiving back. Would you really like to take that big of a risk for a day you can't go back and re-shoot to get better audio or footage? Your wedding film is one of the very few items you get to take with you that outlives generations!
Don't you worry! What we'll do is just put you down for the base package. Once you start to get an idea of the skeleton of your wedding day timeline, then we could add on either more hours or any extras that would benefit to telling your story! I'm here to be an additional guide to helping you plan out your wedding day. If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm just one text, call, email, or IG DM away!
The 2 aspects I focus on for filming your wedding day are moments and emotion. I try my very best to capture the genuine moments that are candid glimpses of laughter and happy tears. Also, audio is super important to me in telling a story, so there will be times I'll have to ask the music to be shut off during your letter readings at bride prep. Other than that, I don't really do a bunch of posing. The majority of posing is done at the couple intimate session of the day.
I send out a wedding day questionnaire that is filled out as you plan your wedding day. In the questionnaire, I ask what kind of vibe would describe your wedding day. From there I choose music that meshes well with the vibe. The music I use on my films is licensed through a music website in order to use artists' work legally!
Wedding films typically take a minimum of 4 months after your wedding day to get back. The reason it takes so long is to leave headway for unexpected events, such as illness or fatal accidents in my family or to me, as I craft each and every wedding film that I have the opportunity to capture!

    Amazing!!!

    Choosing Aaron Datu to video my wedding day was one of the easiest and most confident decisions I made throughout the wedding planning process. After ...our first time meeting together for me to simply inquire about his services, I knew his sweet personality and talented productions needed to be included in my wedding day. If I had the chance to give 6 starts for this review, I would, because Aaron really goes above and beyond in every way. Before our wedding, we met a couple of times to discuss my vision and to go through the schedule of the big day. He also scheduled a few shoots to take place during the engagement process, so we cold document a few date nights. Looking back, I am so thankful my husband and I will have those clips to reminisce on as well as our wedding day. When July 16, the day we had anticipated finally hit, Aaron and his sweet wife were the perfectly efficient and calming duo to accompany my bridal party and I throughout the day. The Datus together were incredibly easy going, readily helpful, surprisingly calm and simply amazing. The morning after the wedding, I had an email from him with a short little teaser video. What a sweet surprise this was for my new husband and I to watch just hours after the event and for us to showcase at the brunch we hosted that morning. Since then, so many people have asked about my videographer and I certainly only have good things to say about him. From his genuine and kind personality to his intricate and unique talent - he is definitely one of kind and highly recommenced for any video graphing needs. :)

    Book him now!!

    I can’t recommend Aaron enough! He went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared before our wedding day, then again on the big day. He was eas...y to work with, always polite, and just so easy to get along with. He brought his wife to help as well and she is just the sweetest person. We got our teaser video back early early the morning after our wedding and I’ve probably watched it 100 times it’s that good!! I can’t wait to get our full video. Aaron is amazing, if you’re debating on booking with him or just booking a videographer at all, I highly highly recommend. You won’t regret it!

    Aaron is the BEST!

    Aaron is absolutely amazing- as a human being and as a videographer. When looking for a videographer, you can preview their work and it shows their st...yle, editing, etc. What you can’t see is how they will help throughout the wedding process, interact with guests, and see the important details of the day. Aaron was the complete package! He really wanted to get to know my husband and I to really learn what was important to us and capture our love story. You can truly see that he’s so passionate about capturing memories and stories that you can look back on for years to come. We got so many compliments from our guests about him and they hadn’t even seen his work yet! He’s just a great human being. Aaron will capture your day in a way that’s better than you could ever dream! His work is so stunning and our memories with him as a person will stay close to our heart forever!

    Awesome videographer with amazing work

    Aaron was the best videographer to work with for our wedding! He was consistent and very intentional with the pre-wedding conversations. He made sure ...to understand what we wanted to highlight that during our wedding within the video - also had a preview video ready for us to see by the time we woke up the next day. It is no secret he is a hard worker and takes pride in his work. His shots are so unique and the video he creates will blow you away!! He was so nice and genuine to work with, brings ideas to the table, and respects your ideas as well. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is looking for a videographer for whatever they need - you can't get a video like his from anyone else!
