IT'S PRETTY AMAZING WHAT
A CAMERA ACTUALLY DOES!
We are Brett and Alex Sandridge, a husband and wife team who run Gardenia, a wedding cinematography business out of Charlottesville, Virginia. It was about a year after our own wedding when we questioned why we didn't get it filmed, and found ourselves regretting it. It was at that moment when it clicked! We were going to start filming weddings. We both love the fact that we are able to capture one of the most important days of a couple's lives for them. Through a camera, we are able to capture those special moments you feel, conversations you might not recall right away, and reproduce all the raw emotion that the couple in love has on their wedding day. It's pretty amazing what a camera actually does! Pictures are great of course, but the number one thing that couples always tell us after filming their wedding, is that we've captured parts of the day that they already didn't remember, or didn't even realize had happened. Needless to say, that's why we highly recommend having your wedding day filmed!
