CAPTURING beyond the ordinary and the in-between
Virginia | Maryland | DC | Destinations
They are absolutely amazing! They provided videography for my May wedding and we could not be happier with our decision. Our highlight film was delivered right on time, and left us speechless. It was beautiful, and we received so many compliments on the quality of their work. We’re so excited to see the feature film! I can’t thank them enough for capturing these special moments and portraying them perfectly."

More than a music video
Firstly, a wedding film should be more then your portrait photography moments set to music in slow motion. You are the kind of couple that values the in-between; a sweet glance during vows; your mother beaming with joy during getting ready prep; the best man reminiscing on childhood memories during toasts. Those moments are what our films prioritize.
unscripted and inspired stories
When so many wedding videographers, niche down to one style, we dare to be different. Be it you're getting married at a luxury waterfront estate with 300 guests, to an intimate affair, dining el freso at a countryside B&B, your wedding film is tailored to match who you are.
When you inquire with us, we send you our base video packages to give us a starting point. But that's where this gets exciting, as we truly want to create a film package that is custom for you. Want us there for multiple days to create you a 20 minute highlight film? Done. Having a quick elopement and need a quick teaser film and ceremony only film? Let's go.
proud, female-owned business
One of the biggest reasons I started my business is because women are the minority in the wedding videography world. Slowly but surely, times are changing, which hypes me up. I also serve all couples, LGBTQ+ are always and forever welcome here.

Client Review - Blue Valley Winery Wedding
If I could give them 18 out of 5 I would...From the original phone call to our wedding day, they were nothing short of exceptional. They were BY FAR our favorite vendor on our wedding day. If you are looking for a fun, professional, excellent photography/videography vendor look no further. You will not be disappointed.

My purpose for all of the work I create is to make something that truly brings you back to the moment. Firstly, a wedding film should be more then your portrait photography moments set to music. Second, I want you to be able to pass this wedding film through the generations, as a wedding day is the one time in your life where everyone you love is together in one room. This may be one film in your life that truly captures that moment.
From weddings, micro-weddings and elopements, this is about your love story and documenting beyond the ordinary and capturing the in-between moments. Your story is unique to you and we want to help tell it. Hi, my name is Kathleen (my friends call me Kathy) and I am a Virginia wedding videographer.

Why this option is pretty awesome
and my as perspective why you should and shouldn't have one
We are one of the most important vendors that make up your wedding vendor team. If there is any vendor that is with you the most on your wedding day, it's your wedding videographer (and photographer too).
This is my why
Get to know me - Virginia Wedding videographer and Portrait Photographer
Why is wedding videography important is a question I hear quite often. Most importantly, is is because we are capturing what is happening in real time, serving our couples beyond documenting the ordinary. Above all, a wedding weekend is full of fleeting moments; the sweet glance between parents during a ceremony, the heartfelt speech from a sibling, this goes beyond capturing the obvious. This is also about capturing the in-between.
Serving couples in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC and destinations, every time I capture a wedding, I am reminded that this is a moment that will make you smile for years to come. Because when you press play on your wedding video, it is going bring you back to that moment over and over again.
I am a ready to documentary beyond the ordinary and capture the in-between moments.
Hi, so nice to meet you, let me tell you a little bit about myself. Firstly, I am a wedding and elopement videographer in Virginia, serving couples in Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC and worldwide. How did I get started? I started Kathykins Creative, LLC in 2018 after being behind a camera for a decade, finding joy documenting people and the world around me. I offer videography services for full service weddings. In addition to this, I also videography and photography options for elopements and portrait sessions.
I am not getting married in Virginia, can you travel for my wedding ?
How far do you book in advance, when should I reach out to you?
Yes, our wedding video services are not limited to the immediate Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC area and we would love to come where you are. Most importantly, it is actually one of our favorite things to do. For all weddings 150 miles or more from our home in Northern Virginia, we add on a travel fee.
Most importantly, our calendar is already blocked the day before and after your wedding. With that said, we always recommend to our destination couples to bring us in for their rehearsal dinner, welcome party, video adventure session and day-after brunch, so we can capture all the emotional moments from the wedding weekend and add it into their final wedding or elopement film.
The sooner you reach out the better. For example, it is not uncommon for our calendar to have a date open on a Monday and then by Wednesday, we are booked for the same date. This is because your wedding date is only held with contract signature and retainer payment.
Our calendar currently is open through 2023. We accept approximately 15 weddings and elopements per year, as we don't outsource our wedding film editing. Above all, it is important to us to give our undivided attention to every wedding video we work on so we are intentional on how we book out our wedding calendar.
Do you offer photography services, as some of your reviews mention wedding photography?
Where can I find you on social media? I want to see more.
Currently, we are only booking photography services for small elopements and portrait sessions. However, we have an amazing network of wedding photographers to refer you to that we love to work alongside of. When you inquire with us, please let us know who your wedding photographer is or if you need a referral. P.S.: we also have referrals for other wedding vendors too.
