Meg and Rob of Rogue Heart Media make up one of the very best videography/photography companies in the Inland Northwest. With a wealth of experience and a passion for weddings, these two are always leading our local industry in new trends and amazing customer service (just read the glowing reviews below!). I also think if you did a survey asking our local wedding industry who the kindest vendors are, these two would definitely be at the top! They have a solid reputation for creating amazing work, making clients happy and being a dream to work with.
Today they are sharing some of the unique offerings that make their services so special. Take it away Meg and Rob!
At Rogue Heart Media we have always served a unique niche. Our brides and grooms tend to be spirited, creative, and adventurous. They have a unique story to tell, and we are privileged to help them share it in the way that fits them best. We have yet to work with a couple that is anything short of awesome, and it’s some kind of crazy luck that we always seem to have a creative synergy with the couples who seek our services.
Honoring that, we have tried to keep our ears and our minds open to what these couples are searching for in their wedding videos. That is why Rogue Heart Media will be altering our video packages in the 2015 season to better suit the needs of our couples.
Wedding Prequels: Love is an Adventure
The wedding day truly is a turning point for any couple, marking the completion of your engagement and the start of your marriage. But your love story began well before saying “I do,” and we’ve realized how important it is to be reminded of the special moments that built your relationship’s foundation. Our couples want to look back on their wedding not as a single day but as a milestone in the greater journey of their relationship, and to create a legacy for their love that they can watch and remember as they continue to grow together. Which is why we are now including a “Prequel” session in our video packages. The footage of your Big Day will serve as the crowning point of the wedding film, but it will be accompanied by the story of what led you to your wedding day and preserve forever the memories that you never want to forget about what brought you two together.
Similar to an engagement session in photography, the prequel video session will be captured before the wedding, but it will focus on motion portraits and conversational interviews tailored to each couple. We might explore how you and your fiancé met and the journey you have had together, perhaps sitting in a restaurant at the table where you had your first date, or on the beach where your partner proposed. Every love story is unique, and we capture our couples’ stories in the ways that truly reflect them: with beauty, joy, and authenticity.
The feedback we have received from our 2014 couples that have had their stories captured this way is that the resulting video represents an even more meaningful keepsake, capturing forever their how-we-met story and recounting the unique and important elements of life together that led to the I dos, in addition to covering their Big Day. We feel that including a Love Story Prequel in our video packages offers more customization and deeper storytelling for our couples.
“There are very few businesses out there that still value human relations. Rogue Heart Media is doing everything right! Friendly, engaging, fresh, and full of passion. A great service and top notch people… If you have a story to be told- these are the people you want by your side. They not only have mastered the art of media, but the art of listening to all stories that deserve to be told.”
– Jodi Benson (2014 Bride)
Same-Day and Next-Day Edit Options
We have had several requests this year to screen videos as part of our couples’ wedding reception programming. Love Story Prequel videos are perfect for this purpose, offering guests a chance to know you better as a couple and celebrate your marriage all the more, and with Same-Day Editing we are able to include footage from the ceremony as the crescendo to your reception screening, as we did recently for Jodi & Amy (video above). Guests’ reactions have been incredible, as they get to glimpse behind-the-scenes moments from earlier in the day, such as the couple’s first look and other sweet interactions.
Similarly, Next-Day Editing is a service that we offer for our destination wedding couples, so that they can share their video promptly online with family and friends who weren’t able to attend. We leave the reception at the end of the night and go straight to work on your edit, creating a beautiful and dynamic piece to share the very next day. In this fast-paced world we live in, we feel that this is an option that we must make available to our dynamic couples.
Photo & Video Bundles
Wedding videos are a legacy investment that will be cherished for a lifetime, while wedding photography artfully documents the Big Day in a way that is tangible and displayable in a more traditional fashion. These two media work in tandem well, and about a third of our clients hire us for both services.
Amber & Joseph:
“Meg and Rob are, hands down, the BEST there is in the industry. Our engagement and wedding pictures were AMAZING and everything we had hoped for, and our wedding video was beautifully and thoughtfully put together and people are STILL talking about it! ”
– Amber Carter (2013 Bride)
Rogue Heart Media started with a primary focus on wedding videography in 2010, and when we added wedding photography to our services in 2011 we saw a positive impact on our couples, as comprehensive coverage of their wedding day suddenly became more accessible. We offer a significant discount when photography and videography are booked together, as there is a synergy between them. We are passionate that wedding videos are an essential keepsake, and we want to make them as available to our brides as we can.
At Rogue Heart Media, we are constantly refining our practices to answer the creative ideas and desires of our couples. We will continue to listen thoughtfully to our brides and grooms, and to tell their stories in the way that is authentic to them. We are excited to elevate our storytelling even further by bringing couples these new services, and as always we are just so grateful that we get to journey along with so many amazing people as they embark on the adventure of marriage!
