Cinematic Wedding Videography &
by Curtis Brownjohn Films
Everybody has an AMAZING love story and it's up to me 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 obscure Anchorman quotes and being an extremely fast eater, I pride myself on giving people an incredibly unique Wedding Videography experience with a friendly face, a tonne of fun and a cinematic final product.
My style of filmmaking is a blend of candid videography and professional cinematography that I've developed over the many years I've been making wedding films. To sum it up: I love camera movement and lighting; I love getting that perfect shot and thinking "yes, this is the bomb"; I love creating spine-tingling films with stunning visuals and soaring soundscapes that will make you laugh, cry and want to get married all over again!
And most of all: "I love lamp."
I would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which these films were made.
I acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their ongoing connection to land, sea and community.
I pay my respects to the elders past, present and emerging.

"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 loved the way you present everything in the full edit. Thank you so much. You nailed it."

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you live stream our ceremony?
Yes! You can now include your loved ones who couldn’t quite make it to your wedding by live streaming your ceremony. A dedicated operator will capture and broadcast in real time everything from your aisle walk to your first kiss and all those precious moments in between. With razor sharp image quality and crystal clear audio, you can rest assured that no matter the distance — everyone will be able to share in your special day.
We only want our ceremony filmed, can you do that?
Most of my Wedding Video 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 gives me enough to tell the story of the entire day in your wedding videos rather than just a couple of hours. However for those on a tighter budget, my 'Economy Package' comes with 6 hours coverage and is enough to capture your ceremony, photo locations and reception formalities.
Are there any travel costs for rural or interstate weddings?
I am happy to travel by car to locations within 50km 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 price of your Wedding Video Package.
What's the go with drone videography?
Drone Videography is an easy way to add an extra cinematic touch to your wedding videos and I would highly recommend adding it to your package — especially if you are tying the knot in a particularly gorgeous part of the world. You will get see your wedding venues from a whole different perspective with breath-taking shots captured from above by a fully licensed pilot using professional-grade aerial cinematography equipment.
Can you do Wedding Photography for us as well?
Videography and Photography are completely different ballgames and I recommend investing in both services. However, every now and then I might capture something on video that your photographer doesn't which is why I offer a Still Frame Gallery. Along with your wedding videos, I can provide you with up to 500 still frame grabs from the timeline, all touched up with the same colour work as your videos and exported in high-definition. These images are perfect for upload to social media and can also be printed up to A4 size without losing quality if you would like to create a photo album.
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 music for your videos is a very important part of my editing process and I devote a lot of time to scouring a music licensing site called 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 films will be unlike anything you've seen before.
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.
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 around 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.
