Real Moments Captured
For your future generations
Authentic moments only happen once and we're constantly looking for them. Like when your mother hugged you ever so tightly before you set off down the aisle, or that look in your father’s eyes when he realizes you’re all grown up. These are the moments you’ll cherish years from now when today's wedding film becomes tomorrow’s family heirloom.

Our Shooting & Editing Style
We want you to remember
your Big Day the way that it really happened.
That's why we shoot:
Documentary style & "fly on the wall".
Classically trained by film school & feature film work using fundamental filmmaking techniques to create story-driven short films.
Beauty is always a consideration. If it isn't your best shot, we aren't using it.
Your intimate portrait as a couple is curated by collecting breathtaking imagery on the day of your wedding, as well as sound bites from your most cherished moments like vows and love letters, coupled with unforgettable toasts by family and friends. In one way or another, your story will reveal itself; how you met, why you love each other, and the journey you've embarked on to arrive at where you are on this day. Once in the editing bay, I’ll artfully weave the narrative throughout your film, backed by a cinematic musical score fitting of your personalities, and bring your memoir to life.

"Oh my! We can’t say enough great things about Big Day Productions. Bianca and her crew made the most amazing wedding video for us. It couldn’t have been better. Bianca was so great to work with. Capturing every moment that I didn’t get to see, being the bride. And re-editing the video until we both were so happy with it. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Thank you Bianca and thank you Big Day Productions for all your hard work. We will enjoy our wedding video for the rest of our lives!
