Kindred | Tampa, FL

Tampa Wedding Videography —

 
 

We craft beautiful, character-driven wedding films for people in love. No bells or whistles — just beautiful. Our films are captivating, short-form narratives that capture the quintessential moments of your wedding day. We operate from the idea that simplicity doesn't equate to lacking in quality: an excellently shot, masterfully edited Highlight Film will evoke feelings just as effectively as a longer, documentary style edit.

Aaron Rolston —

Yep, just like the trapped rock-climber in that one movie you probably never saw. I'm a lifelong creator that never really wants to retire — honestly, I have the best job on earth, so why stop? From portraits of friends, to folk music, to photos in magazines, and now films, there's quite the Internet paper-trail that leads to two facts: I love to create & I love people.

I married a wonderful woman named Adrianne (pictured here!) in my parents' backyard at the start of 2018. With only about thirty friends & family members present, and some glorious breakfast food, it was absolutely the best day of my life. Self-proclaimed coffee addict, minimalism fanatic, and follower of Jesus.

Have a few more questions about how we roll?


 
 

+ Do you shoot elopements + engagements?

Yes! If you’re planning an elopement or engagement and are on the hunt for a videographer that’ll work well with your photographer, look no further. We truly treasure the opportunity to capture an intimate ceremony between you and your love. For pricing + information, please fill out the connect form and we’ll be in touch.

+ Are you willing to travel?

Yes! Our travel rates are as follows: Weddings in the Tampa Bay Area are free, driving / flying in Florida is an additional $300 / $500, travel in the Continental U.S.A. is $1,000, and International is $2,000.

+ Do you have insurance?

Yes! For your peace of mind, and if your venue requires it.

+ How do payments work?

Very simply — a 50% Non-Refundable Retainer is due up-front to secure your wedding date, with the remaining 50% due one month from your wedding day.

+ Is the retainer refundable?

This is really just to see if you actually read the previous question. The 50% Retainer to secure your wedding date is absolutely non-refundable, no exceptions.

+ Methods of payment?

We prefer to use bank transfers — just as safe and quick as a credit card but without those annoying fees. Although, credit card payment is fine as well.

+ Can we meet you before hiring?

Absolutely! Most couples opt for a quick FaceTime call, although... I'm always down to grab a bite to eat or a coffee if proximity permits. Have those questions ready!

+ How much do you charge?

Our Collections for 2019 + 2020 range from $4,500 - $1,500.

 

+ Do you work well with photographers?

It's kindof sad that this has to be asked, but... of course. About 80% of our wedding inquires are referrals from photographers we've worked with in the past, if that says anything.

+ What's your setup like?

I believe that subtlety is a lost art form. While it would be neat to have a huge production crew, with tons of fancy camera equipment, I like to keep things simple — one backpack-full of gear, and a few small accessories. That way, the focus stays on you and your darling fiancé, and I'm not making a mess of your venue.

+ What if I really want a longer film?

We try to be open-minded and accomodating to what our couples want, including footage of as many details and moments from their wedding day as we can. However, we also know that compromises lead to more compromises... so, if you're looking for anything close to a documentary edit, I may not be the right videographer for you.

+ How do you approach choosing music?

As a musician of over 10 years, I know that music is the driving force behind anything that makes people feel deeply, which makes it absolutely crucial to be meticulous in selection. Most times, multiple hours are spent choosing the perfect song for a film, as every film is different. This is also why the length of highlight film varies drastically — the perfect song may be 5:25, or it may be 3:10.

+ How long until we receive the film?

We aim to deliver films in 3 - 6 months from your wedding date.

+ Where do we watch the film?

We upload all of our films to Vimeo and then embed them to a short blog post with some writing, screenshots, and links to all of your wedding's suppliers.

+ Do you offer revisions?

I do my absolute best to deliver a film that will knock your socks off with the very first draft. However, if you're deeply unpleased with something, at my sole discretion, I'm willing to make very minor adjustments (take out / add a clip of your grandma, etc.) — if more major adjustments are requested, our re-editing fee of $150/hr will be applied.

+ Do you keep backups?

We ensure safe local storage of your wedding footage for up to a year — if you're the nervous type, you may seek to purchase the Home Video Edit for your own personal collection. Please inquire for more details.
