Documenting Your Love Story …
So, why choose Shannon Chavez Production?
While technical skills, an eye for lighting are important, it’s the following qualities that I’ve found most invaluable as a filmmaker.
- Everybody feeling at ease!
It’s my mission to provide you with an exceptional experience from start to finish. I take pride in my desire and ability to build lasting relationships with my clients and the vendors I work with on a regular basis and when you work with me you can expect to feel heard, valued, and appreciated.
With 100 weddings and 5 years of experience under my belt, I’ve learned what my clients value most. It turns out, it’s not the cinematic drone shots or the emotional instrumental music that takes me days to choose, (although they appreciate these things too) but the RAW, natural, candid moments that bring them to tears. The in-between moments. The voices of their loved ones, the unexpected rainstorms, the words of advice from their grandparents, the pink sunsets, and the dance circles. The roll on the floor laughing kinds of stories their siblings spill in front of everyone! On your wedding day, I set out to document these kinds of moments. The ones that ultimately, will lay the foundation for your film.
Proposals, Rehearsal Dinners and everything in between!
Weddings and elopements are my specialty, but why start there when there’s so much to be celebrated in the months leading up to the big day?! I’ll help you plan and document your surprise proposal, chase sunsets around the city to catch that perfect shot for your save the date video, provide the Selfie Station for your bridal shower, and even doll you up ahead of the big day for a boudoir experience that will leave you feeling confident and empowered! Bonus: After all this hanging out, we’ll pretty much be best friends and you won’t mind having me (or the camera) around on the big day!
I have a superstar team of specialists to help me move your deliverables through the queue as quickly as possible while maintaining thoughtful, intentional, and quality work. Outsourcing a portion of my editing with private contractors allows me to spend my time doing what I do best: making connections, conjuring up creative ideas, telling stories, lifting you up and helping you to feel fully present in the most cherished times of your life.
When choosing a second shooter for your project, I bring along the kind of people I know you’re going to like having around. Yes, my second shooters have amazing credentials, but most importantly, they’re good people and I trust that they’re going to provide you with the same care and respect that you’ll receive from me.
Hear it from our clients:
“Initially, we weren’t sure that we were going to even get a videographer (which, in hindsight, would’ve been a huge mistake), so we hired Shannon on extremely late in the process. Even with us contacting her in such short notice, she made sure that everything we wanted filmed for our wedding day happened. She even showed up early to the venue when she found out we were doing a first look, just to make sure she was there to capture that moment. I think it speaks volumes to how much Shannon cares about her work and her clients that she would come early to make sure she captured such a special moment for us. Our first look was single-handedly my favorite and most treasured memory of the day, and it’s so comforting to know that we have it on video to watch for the rest of our lives – all thanks to Shannon and her willingness to make every wedding couple she works with as happy as possible!” -Nikki Jones
