Family Film package available for bids this weekend!

20 Nov

It sure has been quiet around here! Fall is always our busiest time filming weddings and now we are focused on getting every film edited and into the hands of our clients before the holidays. But there are always side projects that come up that inspire us to get involved and share what we do for a good cause.


One such project is Bettye Hyde’s Co-operative Early Learning Centre’s annual fundraiser.  Thanks in part to the generosity our wonderful post-production houses, Niagara Custom Lab and Frame Discreet, we are donating and { Day in the Life } Family Film to their silent auction. There will be lots of other amazing items up for grabs such as original artwork, spa gift certificates, tickets to the NAC, and a fabulous photography session from Kim Ing Photography.

So if you have been wanting to book a Family Film session with { First Kiss Films }, this may be your chance to purchase one for much less with all proceeds going to an amazing school.

EVENT: Bettye Hyde Silent Auction
DATE: Saturday, November 23, 2014
TIME: 5:30pm – 7:30pm
LOCATION: All saints Church, 317 Chapel Street, Ottawa

Ridley’s first year

11 Aug

Ever since creating that first film for the Brooks family years ago, I knew I wanted to film my own family should I ever be blessed with little ones. So when my husband and I welcomed baby Ridley almost 18 months ago I kept my 16mm camera handy and during his first year I filmed him whenever I could. The final film is about 20 minutes long so I cut this trailer to share with you all…

Kate & Misha’s grand romance wedding

6 Jun

Words truly can not describe the beauty of Kate & Misha’s Russian-Canadian wedding day celebration. Their intimate affair was drenched in gorgeous and custom details and every moment filled with passion, romance and joy. The couple was married under a canopy of fresh flowers in blush, crimson and butter with vows shared in two languages. They then dined with their guests at dusk in a secret garden lit only by candlelight. Kate and Misha then celebrated their union with an impressive display of fireworks before dancing all night long. Now these are just a few of my favorite things about this wedding, but I invite you to watch the film to experience so much more…

A breathtaking NHL wedding

29 May

Oh my, do we have a treat to share with you! The vintage film we created for an NHL star is soon to be featured right here…it’s a wedding we’ll be talking about for a very long time. Soon, you’ll see why.

The beautiful bride and groom were one of the loveliest I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I was honoured they chose { First Kiss Films } to film their amazing celebration. They even exclusively asked me and my team to film the bridal and groom preparations the morning of the wedding – not even their official photographer was allowed to be there!

The incredible couple loved the film we created for them and emailed this note:

“Hi Bridget!!!! Oh my goodness, the film is absolutely stunning! You have done an incredible job, you included all the beautiful details, people and more importantly moments. I watched it with my family when they were here visiting and we loved it. I’ve watched it over and over myself since then. It is so special and I am so thankful to have found you to do this for us. It was everything I hoped it would be. Thank you so much for all your hard work and love you out into this project. Lots of love!!!”

Laura & Ryan’s gorgeous country chic farm wedding

18 Mar

A bride and her attendants in white,

Cowboy boots, bow ties, and handkerchiefs,

An outdoor ceremony under a huge tree,

Chandeliers, lace, and a barn reception,

And a huge rainbow filling the sky.

This was Laura & Ryan’s wedding…
