Cinematic Wedding Videography
Everyone has an incredible love story. It's up to me as your Wedding Videographer to help you tell it.
Hi! My name is Curtis Brownjohn and I'm a Wedding Videographer based in Adelaide, South Australia. Apart from my wealthy knowledge of Anchorman quotes and being an extremely fast eater, I pride myself on giving couples a unique Wedding Videography experience with a friendly face, a tonne of fun and a cinematic final product.
My filmmaking style is a blend of candid videography and professional cinematography which I've cultivated over the 8+ years I've been making wedding films. To sum it up: I love camera movement and I love lighting; I love getting that perfect shot and thinking "yes, this is the bomb"; I love ceating dynamic wedding videos that tell the story of your special day using stunning visuals and swelling soundscapes that will make everyone you know (as well as complete strangers) smile through tears.
Most of all: "I love lamp."
Check out a few of the latest wedding films that I've made for my love-struck superstars.

"Curtis and his team are so easy to work with and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Our film was a videography masterpiece. Curtis is a true talent in this field and I would highly recommend using him.."
Roland & Anne
"Curtis was terrific. We couldn't be happier. Watching it all, the way you shot it, the way you captured every moment brought the whole day back to us perfectly. We also love the way you present everything in the full edit. Thank you so much. You nailed it."
Sam & Izzy
"Experienced, talented, meticulus, informative. Curtis went over and above to get an amazing product for us. Did a lot of preparation work so he was ready on the day. Great people too which we bonded with straight away. Is a gun so book early!!!"
Lizzie & Joel
"Curtis was fantastic. He is young and fun and captured so much that we missed out on and created a Territory wedding video that we will have forever. Liz and I would recommend Curtis to anyone looking to hire a wedding videographer."
Georgia & James
"Curtis is amazing and made us feel so comfortable at our wedding and in the lead up. He was there to document it all and his work is incredible. If you're looking for a videographer - look no further. He is a delight to deal with."
Frequently Asked Questions
We only want our ceremony filmed, can you do that?
When you book me to be your Wedding Videographer, you get me for the whole day whether you like it or not! All of my packages come with a minimum of 10 hours coverage which typically allows enough time for me to capture your preparations in the morning right through to the end of your reception formalities. This allows me to tell the story of the entire day in your wedding videos rather than just a couple of hours.
Are there any travel costs for rural or interstate weddings?
I am happy to travel by car to locations within 2 hours of the Adelaide CBD without any extra fees. If your wedding is happening outside of this area then travel, accommodation, car hire and other fees may apply. I will provide you with cost estimations for you to approve and include them in the final cost of your Wedding Video Package.
What's the go with Drone Videography?
If you're tying the knot in a particularly beautiful part of the world, I would highly recommend adding Drone Videography to your Wedding Video Package. You will get see your preparations, ceremony, photo and reception locations with breath-taking shots from above captured by a fully licensed crew using the latest professional-grade aerial cinematography equipment. Having these soaring shots in your wedding videos will make them feel that little bit more epic like you are both in Lord of the Rings.
What will having a Second Camera Operator give us?
Having a Second Camera Operator running around with me will ensure that we can capture poignant moments throughout the day that I might otherwise miss due the constraints of shooting solo. We can spend longer in the morning with you at preparations and film you both stepping into your cars to leave for the ceremony; we can capture the looks on both your faces at either end of the aisle as well as the reactions of your friends and family throughout your ceremony and reception formalities; and we can get some seriously cool shots of you at your photo locations with one person focusing on tight shots and the other on the more cinematic wider angles. Simply put: the more cameras, the better the film!
Can you do photography for us as well?
Videography and Photography are completely different ballgames and I don't pretend that I can do the latter. However, every now and then I might capture something on video that your photographer doesn't which is why I offer the option to create a Still Frame Gallery. Along with your wedding videos, I can provide you with up to 400 still frame grabs from the timeline, all touched up with the same colour work as your videos and exported in high-definition. These images can be printed up to A4 size without losing quality and are perfect for making a photo album and/or uploading to social media.
Can we decide to extend our video coverage on the night?
You are welcome to add extra video coverage to your Wedding Video Package on the night if things are going well and you would like me to stay on longer to film the impromptu dance-offs happening between you and your in-laws. Additional video coverage costs $110 per hour, which I will invoice you for after the wedding.
What happens if you are unable to make it on the day?
In the unfortunate event that I am unable to attend your wedding due to a personal matter, sickness, eaten by cats, etc, I have support networks in place and will be able to find you a replacement wedding videographer to film your big day. You will receive a full list of terms and conditions when you book with me that go over all of this in more detail.
Do we get the raw footage?
Short answer? No. I generally shoot around 5 hours of raw footage over the day and you definitely don't want to sit through all that! A lot of couples love sitting down and watching everything which I offer a wedding film called a 'Full-Day Edit' as part of my Deluxe Package. This runs for up to 2 hours (sometimes longer, depending on the length of your formalities) and includes every single shot that I took on the day plus synced audio assembled in chronological order with a high level of finesse. This way you can enjoy watching your entire day back like a feature film without having to lift a finger.
Can we choose the music for our wedding videos?
There are strict copyright laws surrounding the use of popular music (Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, etc.) in video productions which means that I cannot use songs owned by commercial artists without complicated and expensive licensing requirements or getting permission from the artist themselves. This also extends to covers of the same songs. Rest assured, choosing the music for your videos is a very important part of my editing process and I devote a lot of time to it. I use music licensing sites such as Artlist.io and Musicbed.com to find songs that match the look and feel of your special day. I guarantee that you will be absolutely thrilled with the final results and your wedding videos will be unlike anything you've seen before.
How long before we get to see our wedding videos?
If you are getting a Teaser Trailer as part of your Wedding Video Package I will fast-track this video to Facebook and Instagram within a day or two of your wedding for you to share with your family and friends. Your other videos will join the editing queue and will usually take me between 3 to 6 months to complete, depending on the time of year. I will keep you posted throughout the whole process and let you know when you can expect to receive your final wedding videos.
