H&K Cinema - yosemite elopement videographer // unique story telling
Based out of Dallas, Tx, H&K Cinema was founded in 2014 as one of the top Yosemite Elopement videographer and has been pressing the buttons on what you can expect from your video/photo team. Hunter who is the CEO and creative director of this team and started out specifically doing only photo but has since found his strong niche within video and telling stories through film. His rise to being one of the best videographers in the wedding industry started when he dedicated all of his attention to editing video and holding in his skills with run and type filming, which is the name of the film game for anything wedding and destination type shooting. His film back in 2013 in Costa Rica was nominated best film by his peers and has since been a staple for his destination films. Since then he has shot in Maui, New York City, White Sands, Crater National Park, Aspen Colorado, North west North Carolina, Cabo Mexico and the list goes on!
We have helped set an industry standard in what an Yosemite Elopement videographer should be. There is a sense of adventure that comes with doing a island destination wedding and an energy that feeds off being in a different outside setting with all of your favorite people, and that’s where Hunter and his team truly shine being the highly acclaimed shooter. When it comes to the preparation aspect of shooting a destination wedding for photo, there is a lot of scouting involved to find the perfect location for the pre/post day shoot that H&K Cinema always provides. Hunter will hunt out from locals the pristine locations and spend time going and testing the sun situations that day to ensure the best possible scene can be captured. We have also become on of the highest praised shooters and do a lot of outsourcing to utilize our team and maximize your day!
Experience of traveling the country and hiking through national parks, lends a helping hand to making the best Yosemite Elopement videographer. From knowing the best lighting and pushing through the challenges and obstacles of traveling with a whole cinematography setup and crew. Landing a gig in New York for an elopement shoot, shed a lot of light onto what would later become one of our trademark films. For that shoot, Hunter said that he traveled the entire east side of the island the day before the shoot to be able to get all locations nailed down fro the upcoming full day shoot with the couple. The locations he found were a few bridges that he ends up jumping off the side a cliff to get the shot with the couple. We were voted by love stories tv as the top videographer in US by our peers.
Adventurous Video + Photo. Based in Texas
Since 2017, we have started a passion project titled “The Lost Glaciers” that will release at the end of 2023 and be the first “Feature Film” outside of weddings and other paid for commercial projects. This film will focus on the pursuit of travel and the overall affect that mankind is having on the outlook of our planet. The lost glaciers is not be a political piece, but more so be about how precious of a place we live on this planet. The setting for this photo will be in multiple locations including Glacier National Park, Alaska and Iceland. One of the best films he ever shot was during the massive attack at the helm of day in and day out grind.
Another perk of shooting elopements is the variety of locations you get to work in. With traditional weddings, you're often limited to the ceremony and reception venues. But with elopements, the world is your oyster! I've shot elopements in everything from secluded forests to bustling cityscapes, from mountaintops to beaches. Each location brings its own unique challenges and rewards, and it's always exciting to see how the couple's personalities and relationship shine through in each setting.
But let's be real, elopements can also come with their own set of challenges. For example, sometimes you have to contend with unexpected weather (I've been rained on, snowed on, and even hailed on while shooting elopements) or unexpected guests (like the time a curious deer walked into the middle of our elopement ceremony in the forest). But you know what they say - the best stories are the ones with a bit of a twist. Let us show you how we are the most loved Yosemite elopement videographer
And let's not forget the crucial paperwork, when you're shooting an elopement, it's important to make sure that all the legalities are in order, that the couple is allowed to marry in that specific place and that they have the proper in-hand paperwork, which can be quite the challenge if you're shooting somewhere off the beaten path. But you know what they say, love knows no bounds.
Take a lot of pride in the editing and end/finalization side of things as well. video editing is a complex and challenging process that requires a combination of technical skill and artistic vision. It is a process that requires patience, attention to detail and a good sense of storytelling. As an editor, it's my job to take raw footage and turn it into a compelling story, and it's a process that I take great pride in. With every project, I strive to create a video that is not just technically sound, but also emotionally impactful.
