Please say hello to another of our fabulous sponsors, Jennifer Zinchuk (and her husband, Alex) of Zinchuk Studios! They specialize in capturing weddings in HD, and have been doing this for almost 5 years now. Jennifer says, “It has been a really wonderful journey learning the ins and outs of the wedding cinematography business, and we love working with all the amazing couples in Seattle!” And they do it beautifully!!
Jennifer, what do you love about your work? We love being able to work with people on one of the happiest days of their lives and capture the emotions of the day in living pictures and sound. It is a real challenge to get live action, high-quality sound, and capture the event in a cinematic way, but we revel in that challenge. We learn new things every day! And one of the best things about this business is meeting new people all the time: our brides & grooms, their families, their vendors, and everyone in this creative community!!
What drew you to Get Hitched, Give Hope? I heard about this event last Fall and couldn’t wait to participate this year. Many of the women in my family have been affected by breast cancer, so I am always glad to raise awareness. Get Hitched, Get Hope is a fun way to plan a wedding, have a great night at a fab location, and support a really important cause. How could we not take part?!
How are you participating in GHGH? We are donating a “Love Story” film for the auction. It is the story of “how we met.” These videos are usually shot in a 3-4 hour session; which creates a short edited film (up to 10 minutes). This is your chance to be creative, show your personalities and HAVE FUN! Many couples like to show their Love Stories at their wedding reception. Here are two fun examples of recent love stories: http://www.vimeo.com/10454136; http://www.vimeo.com/7019145
What is your favorite product or service you provide? Love stories are a good way to get to know our couples; weddings are amazing events to take part in. But Trash the Dress sessions tend to be the most fun–they’re day-after (or week or month-after) sessions where our brides & grooms relax, have fun, and take cool shots in their bridal attire. Usually their dresses don’t get ruined; rather, they let their hair down a bit without the pressure of a wedding ceremony. Totally fun!
Why do clients choose you? When we capture a wedding (or special event), we really like to take the time to get to know our couples through style consultations, Love Story shoots, etc. Yes, we like to get pretty shots, but more important are capturing the emotions of the day. As we get to know a couple and their families, the unique qualities of each relationship and love stands out. That is why we do this; that is why clients come to us. That, and we’re a pretty fun pair ourselves 🙂
Anything else youʼd like to share with the world? We are so excited to take part in Get Hitched, Give Hope for the first time! Can’t wait to meet everyone there!
WE are so excited to have you on board! Thank you!
