What is it that you do?
I film weddings and love what I do!
How long have you been doing weddings?
I have been filming weddings for just over 7 years now, I basically fell into it straight after I graduated year 12
After spending just 2 days at university, I quickly realised that there are some lessons that can be learned from textbooks, and others that can only be learned by getting out there and experiencing life. Seeing the world through the lens of a camera is something that’s always made sense to me, and the feeling I experienced when capturing my first wedding is one I’ll remember for a lifetime. That was over 7 years ago, and in the time since, I’m incredibly proud to have captured the weddings of over 350 couples.
How long do brides normally book in advance?
On average about 1 year out from the wedding. However, it is not strange to receive enquirys two to three years before the wedding.
How can couples make their video personal?
Do your wedding the way you want to! Don't feel like you need to follow any tradition, take your time on the day, have fun and relax. Time will go very fast and as long as you have the most fun you can on the day the video will truely reflect that.
How would you describe your style?
Cinematic and timeless
If you could share one piece of advice what would it be?
Don't stress over the small stuff. Enjoy every moment of the wedding day!
Who do you think your style is suited for?
Anyone getting married? But honestly, a couple who wants a timeless film that reflects their day in an honest and real way.
Tell us more about you?
My name is Michael Kelly, I am 25 years old and live in Brisbane. When I am not filming and editing weddings, I am usually planning my own wedding along with my partner Carly or training for triathlon which is a new found passion of mine.
I’m passionate about the raw, real thrill in getting just seconds to capture moments that would otherwise only exist in the memories of a few, and creating a piece of art that will live on with families for the rest of their lives. There’s something uplifting and exciting about playing a part in capturing that special day. There are no takes, no scripts, just real emotion.
