Who are we and what do we do?
Blackbird Wedding Productions is run by husband-and-wife team, Kevin and Olivia.
We understand that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and we go above and beyond to create beautiful and authentic wedding films for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
We steer away from forced smiles and have a real focus on capturing the relationship and natural chemistry between the couples we film. This enables us to create bespoke wedding films that have an organic feel, and reflect the couple's unique relationship.
Our highlight films are documentary-style and include audio from important moments throughout the day including wedding vows and speeches. We are discreet, unobtrusive and down-to earth, and we do what we can to ensure that your wedding day is stress-free!
How Blackbird Wedding Productions began...
Kevin had been working as an established videographer for several years in Melbourne and had decided to try his hand at wedding videography after being asked by a friend to film their wedding in 2016. Olivia joined Kevin as his trusted second-shooter.
We loved the experience and began to look more into wedding videography, watching hundreds of wedding films and identifying elements that we loved and elements we didn't feel worked as well. Through this we developed our own style with a focus on cinematic, story based wedding films with an organic, genuine feel.
We moved to Ireland in 2017 to County Cork (Kevin's home town), and this is where we established Blackbird Wedding Productions, before eventually moving back to Adelaide (Olivia's home town) in 2018. Since establishing Blackbird Wedding Productions we have filmed weddings in Cork, Dublin, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and even Santorini!
We have filmed weddings across a range of cultural backgrounds and we love opportunities to see different wedding traditions, and ways of sharing and celebrating love!
We love wedding videography and see it as a real privilege to be invited into couples lives to capture their special day. After the wedding we are always exciting to get back to office and see our footage from the day and start editing!
What equipment do we use?
We use Sony Cameras (A7iii and A7sii) along with a range of lenses, Zhiyun crane gimble camera stabiliser, and professional sound recording equipment for clear, crisp recordings of audio throughout the day.
Who are we outside of Wedding Videographers?
We live in the Adelaide Hills and are the proud parents of a very cheeky cavoodle called Joni, and our very (sometimes) affectionate cat, Molly. We love going for long walks with the pooch and on our days off we enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and family, and trying out new places to eat.
