The Bolton Approach
This is not our wedding. This is YOUR wedding. After having a wedding of our own, we understand that every detail of the day is perfectly chosen and crafted. We take the time to get to know you and your significant other. We want to know every detail from the moment you met, to the first “I love you”, to the time he got down on one knee and finally asked, “Will you marry me?” We will not only capture all of the glorious highlights of your wedding day, but also tell your story. Getting the opportunity to tell that through the art of wedding videography simply makes it all the more magical for years to come.
Bolton Media Company was created out of a passion to tell stories through video. Until May of 2018, Allison and Zachary had been creating promotional-style videos and content for their alma mater, Liberty University. While still offering that, they decided to embark on a new adventure of filming weddings. In recent years, wedding videography has become more popular. Photographers have been in high demand for a while now, but the demand for videographers has finally begun! With the rise in technology, living in a world without a camera has become nearly obsolete. With cameras becoming smaller, better quality, and more user-friendly, many across the world have begun their own venture with videography. Today the wedding videographer has became a standard along side of the wedding photographer. Bolton Media hopes to stand out from the crowd with their creative touch in cinematic story telling, moving portrait shots, and a dynamic element in filming.
Meet the Bolton’s
Getting a great video for your wedding day goes beyond the equipment. You need a team that will not only keep your best interest in mind through every step of the process, but will represent you well to your family, friends, and other vendors at your wedding. Your wedding day is by far one of your biggest life events and it is vital to have people on your team who understand your wants and desires, are experienced in the fast-paced whirlwind of a wedding day, and skilled in the art of filming, editing, and producing wedding videos.
“Bolton Media did such an amazing job with our wedding video! They were so professional, and created a beautiful video that captured every single sweet moment of our wedding day. They included such a thoughtful touch by incorporating our first dance song in the video. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, they were so amazing!”Hannah Mertz – Bride
