Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: One of the reasons we love this job is that every wedding & event is different. Each has its own thumbprint, and we want to capture that not only when we're filming, but also in the editing process! On the day of your wedding or event, we come in, say hi to everyone, and then we film, film, film. We work really well with photographers, making sure they have the space & set-up they need. We also do not bring in big gear or lights, because we don't want to be a distraction to you, your photographer, or guests. While we might stage shots with your dresses, shoes, jewelry, etc., that is the only thing we'll stage that day. Everything else we just capture as it happens. All the emotions and details we capture are authentic and real! After your wedding or event, we talk about things we noticed - the mood, the music, the special things that made your day so unique. We decide which one of us is going to edit the footage and create your final films; we never outsource our editing work. We also do not use templates for your highlight or full feature films. It's why, when you look at our work, you can see a difference in the types of music, style, mood, colors/fonts, etc. Each one has been custom made to fit the couple and their day. Because we do all of the work from scratch, this takes us a little longer when we edit than some other companies who turn around everything in a week. We never want to just throw something together for the sake of speed! We also go through all of your footage very carefully, making sure that we don't miss anything that you might want to see or remember from that day. The comment we hear back most often from our clients is that they can't believe how complete and detailed their final films are! To top that all off, we're also a male/female videography team that has known each other for 22 years, and have worked together for over 9 years. We are practically mind readers at this point! We are both videographers & editors, and our styles meld together so you can't tell if more than one person worked on your project. We both love what we do & have the same philosophy: We are driven by wanting to do good in this world, and nothing makes us happier than a happy client. We are very grateful that we get to call this our "job!" Since we were children we loved creating stories, but we realized as we grew older that we enjoyed capturing the stories of others even more. There is nothing more rewarding than providing someone with a keepsake that will let them not only relive the day or event, but will often surprise them with things that they didn't notice at the time but bring a smile to their face or happy tears to their eyes.

Maurice and Carrie did a wonderful job for our wedding! I debated and debated on whether a videographer was necessary for my wedding and decided to go for it best decision ever! We just received our highlight video and it brought tears to my eyes. I LOVE it! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

We had a fantastic experience working with Maurice Barnes of Firefly Productions to create an overview video of one of our events. He was easy to work with, flexible, fair, and most importantly, provided us with high quality video in a timely manner. He'll be the first one we call when we need video services again.

Maurice did our wedding video and we can not say enough good things about him! He is a great person, easy/fun to work with, and very talented in what he does. We have many friends getting married and after they saw our video they booked him too. I highly recommend Firefly Productions

Maurice and Carrie were amazing. We just received the highlight video and it brought me chills because how well put together it was. It is as if we got a front row view of the entire wedding. I would highly recommend Maurice and Carrie to anyone that wants a nice, friendly, and expert videographer.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For weddings, we do have pricing that starts at $875 for up to 5 hours; each additional hour is $125/hour. This includes two videographers & cameras, along with professional audio equipment to capture everything from vows to speeches and everything in between. Each package comes with it's own unique deliverables, so please visit our website at captureyourfire.com for more information. Pricing is similar to weddings for personal events. For corporate, non-profit, or creative/theatrical work, please contact us directly for pricing! We do have light kits for interviews, along with a variety of audio capturing sources to work in any condition.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We typically let the customer dictate what works best for them. For weddings, some couples want to just book the date & provide the details later, while others like to meet or arrange for a call upfront. We are extremely flexible, so we will work with you at whatever pace or method of communication is best for you! To secure a date for any event, we ask for a $200 deposit (part of the fee, not in addition to it), as well as a signed engagement letter that outlines services, deliverables & time frames.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Maurice has had a camera in his hand since he was a small child, and he & his brother were obsessed with storytelling - and still are, truth be told! He has taken courses at Cincinnati State, and has been capturing weddings & theatrical events for almost 20 years. Carrie studied at the former Brown College in St. Paul, Minnesota, a liberal arts college where her focus was on graphic design and marketing. She first picked up a video camera in 2005, where she began filming & editing to create educational & motivational videos for over 10 large hospital clients across the country.
