Our Story: Founded in 1996, Snowbird Films has evolved into a second-generation, full-time media company that specializes in TV programming, corporate films, and bespoke wedding cinematography. With over two decades of experience in the industry, we've been honored with awards such as Asian Wedding Videographer of the Year London and the South in 2017, and the highest award of excellence from the Association of Professional Video Makers.
We currently use the Sony FX6 and either the FX3 or the A7Siii as our main cameras to capture your day. We use lapel sound recorders for professional sound and own a array of gimbals, drones and other cameras.
At the heart of Snowbird Films is David, our owner and Ricky our founder.

His passion for cameras, technology, and storytelling is evident in every film he creates. Ricky, with over 38 years of experience in the field, is your go-to person for all pre-wedding inquiries. His love for capturing memories began with his own family, and it has since evolved into a successful career.
Our approach to wedding filmmaking is simple: be unobtrusive, capture the details, and tell your unique story.

At Snowbird Films, we harness the power of the latest cutting-edge gimbal technology and slow motion to create breathtaking couple shots that are both visually stunning and emotionally captivating. Our skilled videographers use gimbal stabilisation to achieve smooth, cinematic movements that effortlessly glide through each frame, showcasing the beautiful connection between you and your partner and the settings around you. By incorporating slow motion into these shots, we are able to accentuate every tender touch, loving glance, and heartfelt embrace, further amplifying the emotional impact of your wedding film.
When you book a second videographer, we can elevate your couple shots even further by combining these gimbal shots with close-up moments. Our second operator uses a zoom lens to focus on the intimate details, such as tender touches and shared glances, while also highlighting the surrounding venue and beautiful floral arrangements.
We understand the importance of capturing the magic that unfolds before the guests arrive. Our dedicated team can arrive early at your venue to document the stunning preparation shots that truly set the stage for your special day. These early moments are essential in setting the tone for your film, and by arriving ahead of time, we ensure that no detail is left unnoticed, preserving the essence of your day from the very beginning.
We take pride in offering our unique Feature Film package, a documentary-style presentation of your wedding day that perfectly complements your Wedding Highlights. The Feature Film is designed to capture the essence of your special day in its entirety, showcasing the complete ceremony and speeches in full, allowing you to relive those memorable moments for years to come. Our skilled team meticulously crafts this longer film, seamlessly blending the intimate details, heartwarming moments, and joyous emotions that make your wedding day truly special. By combining the cinematic storytelling of your Wedding Highlights with the comprehensive narrative of the Feature Film, we ensure that every aspect of your celebration is preserved in a timeless and captivating way.
We understand that it's the little details that make your wedding day uniquely yours. Our experienced team keeps an eye out for those personal touches, from the intricate decorations to the meaningful mementos that reflect your story. We take great care to capture these elements, weaving them into the narrative of your wedding film. In addition to highlighting the smaller details, we also showcase the beauty of your chosen venue and its surroundings. When possible, we use drone technology to capture breathtaking aerial footage, adding a cinematic dimension to your film that truly elevates the visual experience.
We understand the importance of capturing the speeches, as they are an integral part of your wedding day memories. To ensure that these moments are preserved with exceptional quality, we utilise professional audio equipment for crisp and clear sound. When you book one operator, we employ a combination of one static camera and one moving camera, If you choose to book two operators, we go a step further by capturing the reactions of your guests, adding an extra dimension to your film that truly brings the emotions and ambiance of the event to life.
