Hi, we are Chad and Samantha Whelan! When you hire us you are hiring ONLY US! I am always the primary shooter and do all of the editing. Samantha is the 2nd shooter and assists with everything in-between. We currently live in Durham, CT and specialize in producing longer documentary style videos along with high impact upbeat short films. Our shooting style is very freeform and candid, NEVER posed, NEVER staged. We want you to be as natural as possible around us and want that to reflect in the final edit. Normally we start shooting a couple hours before the ceremony or the 1st look however that timing is entirely up to you. One of us will be with the bride and the other with the groom in order to capture all the moments from both sides leading up to the ceremony. I am a very musically driven person and that is reflected in my editing style which is generally fast paced and very upbeat. The music used is entirely up to you! Online proofing along with digital downloads are always provided for every video we produce.
Samantha and I are originally from St. Pete, Florida. We met in college and were married barefoot on on the beach at 20 years old. In 2001 I started the company and this has been my full-time job and passion ever since. We love being a small personalized company and shoot on average 30 weddings a year. I am very proud to say that 2021 celebrates 20 years of successful business! Work aside, you will find that we know how to run a business and take great pride in exceptional customer service, communication and professionalism.
If you like what you see I would love to talk in more detail about your wedding day! I am very easy to get ahold of via text, email or phone. You are welcome to come by our house in Durham, see some more work on the big screen and get to know us a little better anytime. You can of course also see plenty of work in the theater section on the website or by visiting our Vimeo page.
