Take One Films


We are takeone films

Laura and I have been filming weddings for over 10 years. We started in 2009 and have been witness to over 200 I do’s, first kisses, toasts, tears of joy, laughter and that all important walk back down the aisle (one of my favorite parts). It’s one of the best moments in our couples lives and is truly is an honor and privilege to be a part of their special day.

Honestly, we are a little bit selfish regarding our motives for NOT making your wedding day a “production” either. We simply can not afford for you or your guests to notice us too much. So please relax! Wedding videos, if chosen correctly, are the best investment you can make in your wedding. You’ll actually notice your photographer more than you’ll see us. We don’t take up a lot of your time and we don’t have cameras in anyone’s face. We certainly don’t conduct cheesy table interviews. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to get the “genuine” moments and the moments that you didn’t even know happened or remember happening! Please read up on our reviews on Wedding Wire to learn more about our couple’s experiences
We will go wherever you’ll have us! Our normal coverage (without any travel fees) extends from Jekyll Island to Palm Coast. If your wedding is outside of that area, it is not a problem. We will create a custom package to fit your needs.
The last thing we want to do is to be in your wedding photos! Therefore, we make it a point to call your photographer the week before your wedding if we have never worked with them. This allows us to ease the tensions that some photographers feel, and also establish a “team effort” mentality with the ones that understand this is your day. Since we do have our own unique style, we request a little time for our “creative session”. We aren’t the type that sits back and just “shoots what the photographer is shooting”. Still photo sessions make for great photos, but boring video! We “dance” with the photographer during major moments of the day so you never even notice we are there. Hopefully the photographers honor your wedding day enough to do the same for your video! Honestly, we have found that when we mesh well with our couple, they choose a photographer that represents that as well!
Yes, and no. You are hiring us to create a piece of “art” that represents you. Naturally if you are adamant about having that special Celine Dion song from 1998 in your film but it doesn’t fit the mood or feeling of your day, we aren’t doing our job. For couples that trust us to film their day, we send a quick questionnaire that answers all of our logistical and timeline questions about your wedding. Included are a few questions that ask specifically what some of your favorite songs are, and even your favorite artists or genres. We even ask you what music you hate! From that starting point, we actually seek out and find music off the beaten path, based on your preferences, you might not hear on the radio. That way your wedding film soundtrack not only reflects your style and taste, but is unique to your wedding.
One thing that benefits you about having a full team of people like Take One Productions, is that we are able to collaborate to perfect your wedding film and produce it faster for you. Our current turn around time is approximately 2-4 months, compared to a lot of other companies that take between 6-10 months. We want you to be able to relive the moments as soon as possible!

    the absolute best !

    I could not recommend Take One Films enough! my husband and I had a crazy journey getting to our wedding due to the pandemic. So after 3 wedding dates... and 2 venues. We finally ended up at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island FL. But it was truly meant to be! and Doug was a huge part of that. We are obsessed with our beautiful videos and will watch them for the rest of our lives! he was also able to recommend an amazing photographer that they frequently work with and the whole team was seriously fantastic. My family and friends really cant stop talking about the wedding and now having these insanely beautiful videos to look back upon is the best!!!! We recommend them 1000 times over. Thank you SO much Take One Films!!!
