$500 Grant Date
A documentary-style approach to wedding videography that captures the emotions of all who attend the wedding.
Wedding videography has become a hot commodity in recent years.
While wedding photography has always been an important aspect of capturing a couple’s big day, wedding videography has become a popular way for brides and grooms to be able to relive their wedding day in 4K, play-by-play detail.
Nowadays, it’s easy to find photographers, but wedding videographers are few and far between.
Brooke Richison’s natural talent for capture emotions and editing them into emotional time capsules for couples to enjoy again and again is what brought her into the realm of wedding videography.
Brooke started in the field as a second shooter for another local videographer and was able to learn tricks of the trade and build up her own clientele in the process.
After shooting her first solo wedding in July 2021, demand for her services picked up that August and she officially began BrookeRichy Videography. Brooke has a documentary-style approach to filming and that captures the emotions of not only the featured couple but also the guests in attendance. This creates an immersive experience for the bride and groom to look back on for years to come.
In addition to wedding videography, Brooke has started working with small businesses, couples, individual, and group shoots, and has even dipped her toe into photography.
Although Brooke loves shooting weddings, one of her long-term goals through BrookeRichy Videography is to work with nonprofits and ministries to promote their services through storytelling and videography.
The $500 Grant from the Fortitude Fund will help Brooke improve the audio quality of her videos with new equipment and cover the cost of a video editing course to hone her skills in that realm.
