Josh Gooden Cinema

What makes your work unique?

Our desire to tell stories using both quality audio and visuals. We tend to stray away from music video wedding films, as we firmly believe that vocal audio is key to telling your story in an authentic way. We film using a mix of High Definition and Super 8mm cameras – depending on which medium fits you best. Our goal is to provide a film that you will watch over and over again, and for complete strangers to feel that same energy and emotion we felt as we captured it. Our base package includes a 4-6 minute “highlight film” that captures the day and tells your story. We also provide documentary edits of your full wedding ceremony and dinner toasts.

Add-on items, such as a 10-15 minute “feature film” and raw footage, are also available. Please contact us for more details.


Will you travel to capture our special day?

Absolutely! While we are based in Virginia, we frequently travel for events and projects. We have traveled throughout North America for assignments and have also stepped foot in parts of Europe and Asia. We have a love for adventure, up-to-date passports, and are happy to journey to wherever your love story will take us!


I’d love to learn more about your availability and rates.

We only book a select number of weddings per year, as this insures a quality, high-end service for our couples. 2017 wedding commissions begin at 6,000 USD.


Who is your ideal client?

We love couples that have a story to tell. Our ideal client incorporates their personalities into the wedding so that we can convey a sense of who they are, along with the emotions of the wedding day. We firmly believe that love is love and are proud to serve couples of all cultures and orientations.


What is your typical turnaround time?

We strive to create films that are unique to each couple. From getting to know you, to choosing the perfect blend of songs that fit your tastes – we handcraft each story to build a one-of-a-kind film. Our turnaround times vary depending on the time of year, but you can generally expect to be able to view your film no later than 4-6 months.


We believe you are the one for us! How do we book?

We would love to meet you in person or via video call to hear more about your story and see if we are the perfect fit for one another. We book assignments on a first come, first serve basis. Unfortunately, we cannot hold dates without a signed contract and retainer.
