Let's Get to Work
WEDDING VIDEO EDITING
Hi, I’m Kathleen, a private wedding video editor who works with limited number of select clients to create amazing films to not only enhance their brand and their storytelling, but reduce their workload. This page goes over all the details of working with me to make sure we are the right fit. So let’s get started.
I am not accepting new editing clients for the remainder of 2022, with the exception of unique projects or non-traditional weddings/elopements.
For 2023, I am accepting 2, new editing clients, and will be conducting interviews for those slots through the end of 2022. This is to find the best fit for me as an editor, to produce the best films for you.

Let's work together
What makes you different than other editors?
So, how does this all work?
As a wedding videographer myself, I have a unique perspective to bring to your wedding video that is more than someone who has not been present on a wedding day. The type of clients I work with want more than just someone to help clear their backlog. They value my judgement and know that I will bring more to their film than a standard cookie cuter edit. I am more than just your standard wedding video editing service.
Once I have determined we are an editing match, I require my clients to do the following:
When will I receive my film?
Once I receive your files, I have a 4-6 week turnaround for films. Once it is completed I will upload to Vimeo via private review link where you can leave timestamped detailed notes.
I allow for 3 revision rounds per film and I require film review within 72 hours of me sending it over for review. If you're unable to provide prompt review, let me know before the start of the edit.
I will mail your drive back with the full resolution film and Final Cut Pro XML file in case you want to make any tweaks yourself before delivery and/or your archive.
How much do your editing services cost?
My current pricing for editing is the following:
What is your editing style?
I accept clients who have a similar wedding video editing to my own. Not only is this more enjoyable for me, but it leads to less revisions, faster turnaround.
My style is heavily music and audio based. As an example, I may use 3-4 songs within a 5-6 minute film to make sure the moment is properly hitting with rise/falls within a song. It is very important to me that the music is matching what is happening visually and work with clients that give me creative freedom to explore other music if the edit direction needs it.
I edit in Final Cut Pro.

Wedding video Editor
I require all of potential editing clients to view my work (and send me examples of their film style as well), to make sure we are good fit before proceeding.
For full transparency, I enjoy editing for people with similar styles to mine, as it less rework, and this job for me is so much more than editing and collecting payment. If you don't like my style, that's totally cool too!
Why I Do This - My Story
Quickly however, I realized what I do want to work on and don't want to work on when it comes to editing for others. I discovered I was not and never will be a film factory. I do not enjoy working for videographer clients with complete opposite styles as to my own wedding films. While I do my best to match my client's style, my wedding video editing is strongly influenced by whatever I see in front of me. I am strong believer that we shouldn't recreate the same film over and over again, but allow the day itself to truly guide us to create unique films for each couple. This is why I keep a very small client roster at any given time to I can give individualized attention to each wedding video edit.
My editing career began when I noticed my wedding videographer peers struggling to find an editor that could do more than put clips to music. They wanted more; looking for an editor that could not only help with their never-ending backlog, but also someone who understands storytelling fundamentals, using songs to pull on emotions, able to create films that match their own if they edited it themselves. Mostly, they wanted an editor that could create a film that they wouldn't feel the need to redo themselves or end up with 20 rounds of revisions. As a wedding videographer myself who doesn't outsource, I could only empathize with their frustrations, but knew I could provide a solution and that was to become a wedding video editor myself.
