The Matthew Reid Films Experience
Less Missed Moments, More Authentic Moments
Wedding films have a unique characteristic — they can capture the fleeting but special moments that speak volumes. The hugs, the laughs, the little looks, the teary eyes… all these small moments come together to tell a complete story of your love.
So when you press play on your film, you can do more than just rewatch your wedding. You can relive it and get caught up in the emotions all over again.
The Matthew Reid Films Difference
As your day unfolds naturally, I focus on capturing what is happening instead of creating orchestrated moments.
Your video will be true to life, in color and in substance, and not follow current trends.
Raw human emotion rules my shots. Every time.
Your video will emphasize only what’s important for you, share your unique story as a couple, and stay 100% true to your personality.
By staying completely present, I am able to learn and discern your authentic wedding story, establish intrigue in the portrayal of it, and carefully pace its beginning, middle, and end.
Notes on Style
Because I use an unobtrusive approach when filming, I have embraced a simple filming and editing process, using minimal equipment and avoiding trendy filters. What you get is a beautiful film in a timeless style that’s focused solely on the parts of the day you’ll want to remember forever.
Your wedding will be ‘Pinterest-worthy’ — but not because it fits the current trends — but because it’s unique, authentic, and worth showing off.
The Easy 3-Step Process
03. Say 'I do'
I love meeting new people. When you get in touch with me via the contact form, I’ll set up a time for us to chat on the phone, click 100% with each other, and hash out all the beautiful details.
I’m going to send you a questionnaire and set up a storytelling session about 4-6 weeks before your wedding. This way I can get to know you both a bit more, dive deeper into your story, and go over any questions you or I may have from your completed questionnaire.
While you commit your love, surrounded by your family and closest friends, I’ll be there to capture it so that you can relive it for many years to come.

"From the get-go, he was flexible, understanding, and most importantly, asked questions and listened. He made us feel like he truly got us. It's very obvious that this is not a "mere job" for him — you can see the passion he has for film and his work overall. Lastly, we had a crazy wedding day, where last-minute crazy weather threw a wrench in everything we had planned and it threw a curveball at many things. Matthew kept his cool and even guided other vendors (and rowdy groomsmen!) making us feel like it was all going to be okay. In short, he crushed it. Hire him, he's your guy!"
“Matthew was one of the people from our wedding team who absolutely impressed us.”
"He truly cares about the people he works with and will deliver incredible work. I was — and continue to be — so amazed by our wedding video. It was beautifully captured and told our story perfectly. Matthew’s communication with my wife and I leading up to the wedding was prompt and organized and we always felt like we were in great hands and well taken care of. On the day of, Matthew was a dream to work with and made everything so easy all while effortlessly catching all the important details of our wedding. Matthew exceed any and all expectations and even surprised us with a song we mentioned was very important to us for our wedding video. 10/10 would recommend him!"
“Matthew is who you need to hire for your wedding/intimate elopement!”
He was responsive and personable to our questions beforehand and during the wedding preparations. Matthew was more than just our videographer on our wedding day too, he went above and beyond to help us. And his videos are true works of art! We are still so impressed with our wedding video!
"We knew right away when we saw Matthew's work that we wanted him to film our wedding."
