Cinematic Wedding Videography
Everybody has an incredible love story and 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 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 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?
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.
Do we get the raw footage?
You are welcome to purchase your raw files. However I can often shoot up to 5 hours of footage over the day and you definitely don't want to sit through all that! This is why I offer an epic wedding video called a 'Full-Day Edit' as part of my Deluxe Package. This film 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 synced with audio and assembled in chronological order with a high level of finesse. This way you can enjoy watching your entire day back like a feature-length 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 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.
