Red Orchid Productions
Red Orchid Productions did a fantastic job!
With a hesitant groom (in regards to feeling awkward in front of a camera), the production team made us feel very comfortable and helped us realize moments (like our dog following carefully behind us on our way back down the isle) of our wonderful day we would never know existed without them.
Red Orchid made an amazing 'same-day edit' to bring all of those who did not witness the ceremony a glimpse into what our day had been like. Looking through the crowd as they watched the video of what words were stated earlier that day made our wedding that much better.
They were also extremely patient, arriving before the photographer and not leaving until near closing time of the reception. They waited until individual persons involved with the wedding could come away from the reception to give advice/sentiments to the couple via interview. They were extremely mindful of the photographer and others involved (DJ, etc.).
The team has a unique and impressive ability to edit real events to make them into a movie-like production. Incredible quality of video and combined with subtle, yet very effective background music, made for a great end-product.
The time to finished product was also impressive. They were able to give us "teasers" of the finished product along the way and delivered the finish product before we even got our printed pictures back!! We got the video in 5 months which we believed was great when you think of all the hours of video they went though.
Overall, very impressed with Red Orchid's work and would recommend them to anyone considering videography (and try to convince those not yet considering such work)!
WOW! I LOVED THE VIDEO. We will treasure it for years to come. The editing was wonderful. We had a sign language interpreter for the wedding. Red Orchid took a video clip of her interpreting and incorporated it into our short 5 minute wedding video. Her signs matched the song perfectly. Red Orchid had to do their research to know what she was saying to match the song that wasnt even played at the wedding. The editing looked like it Was done for a TV movie. The short clips of wedding party and the parents made us smile, cry and laugh. Thank you so much for your hard work. The day went by so fast. We are so glad We have an amazing video to help remind us of our special day!
We are so very pleased and thankful we chose Red Orchid to capture our unforgettable ceremony! It is absolutely amazing and couldn't be happier with how the dvd turned out!
Red Orchid Productions filmed our wedding and changed our whole perception of what wedding video is supposed to be.
They had multiple cameras there all day, to capture everything from our separate preparations in the morning, all the way through to interviews of our guests at the end of the night. The coverage was amazing! They weren't intrusive during the wedding day, just quietly filming away in the background.
But where Red Orchid Productions really shines is in the editing room. They cut together a gorgeous short film from their footage. In about 4 minutes, they perfectly encapsulated the whole experience of our wedding day. Not just how it looked, but how it felt. The excitement and the beauty were all there with their beautiful footage cut together with subtlety and a sense of poetry. It makes my wife cry every time she sees it.
For a lot of people, wedding videography brings to mind of 80's style long-format video of the wedding ceremony - boring, void of artistry, lifeless. But wedding videos have evolved. Red Orchid creates a cinematic, breathtaking account of the wedding day that will make you remember the magic of your wedding for the rest of your life.
Since having Red Orchid provide their videography talents for our wedding, I have told people numerous times, that if I had to pick one thing to advise people to invest in when it came to their wedding, it would be QUALITY videography. Tory and Annie not only provide that, but every piece they do is a unique piece of art. They don't just apply their artistic views but YOUR own personalities and styles.
Travis and I just pulled out our DVD last year on our wedding anniversary. We both laughed and cried through the whole thing, remembering again all the moments of the day that helped to make it so special. So thankful to have that as a keepsake from our wedding day!
We've known Tory & Annie Hooton with Red Orchid Productions now for several years and their work is absolutely incredible! I would strongly recommend them for anyone who is thinking about hiring them to create a wedding video. They focus on the couple and the memories and help tell the story in a unique way that can shared with friends and family or watched years later on anniversaries. I promise you will love working with them!
Who we are:
Red Orchid Productions is led by a husband and wife team, Tory and Annie Hooton. We started out in video production as a hobby we could do together, but we quickly fell in love with the artistic expression we found. Over the past several years this “hobby” has moved from mild interest to near obsession:)
Why we love what we do:
