I'm Zach, a wedding videographer based in Manitoba. I created Zach Barkman Videography as a way to capture people's love stories and display them through film. My services include creative filming and professional editing to create memorable wedding films.
At Zach Barkman Videography, we emphasize capturing your wedding day in an authentic and captivating way. A Highlight Film is the staple product we offer, combining the precious moments of the day into one inspiring video. The Highlight Film includes all the key moments of the wedding day and seamlessly meshes them together with the best audio-visual elements. Our method emphasizes capturing the story of the day and letting it guide the edit, ensuring that the film is a fluid representation of the joy and emotion of your day. Captivating visuals paired with meaningful audio quotes and the perfect song creates a video that sweeps you back into the beauty and meaning of your wedding day.
Wedding videography is at it's best when it captures the authentic and unscripted emotions of the day. As the videographer, we allow the photographer to direct most of the formal portraits and instead focus on inconspicuously filming the moments as they happen. We typically operate with photographers on an 80/20 split, where we only direct the couple occasionally when there is an opportunity for a uniquely video-oriented pose. When it comes to filming the ceremony and reception aspects of the day, we try to balance capturing stunning visuals with the guests' experience. We ensure that we are subtle in our technique while still creating a beautiful and memorable film. That being said, it's great to hear couples' opinions of how subtle they desire the filming experience to be prior to the wedding day.
Wedding videography is unique in that it captures the memories of the day exactly as they happen. Couples appreciate reliving the laughs, the flickers of anticipation in their partner's eyes, the meaningful words, and the wiping of joyful tears that a wedding film encapsulates. Being able to sit back and relive the whirlwind of the wedding day is incredibly meaningful for couples, and also provides a great way to share the day with family and friends in a captivating way.
