South Carolina Wedding Photography

Behind the scenes infor on the Columbia, South Carolina wedding videographers.

      We appreciate your visiting us and learning more about our high quality SC wedding video documentaries. We hope you've found enough information to move forward in choosing us as the perfect videographer for your Columbia, South Carolina wedding.

      We also want to give you a brief but more personal introduction to the people behind Absolute Productions and Media's awesome wedding videography. We enjoy getting to know each couple through the process of creating their wedding videos, and we thought it would be fun if you knew a little about us too.


      My name is James, and my wife is Marianna. (What a pretty name, right?) The two of us lead every aspect of your wedding video from couples' consultations to filming to editing, and we are proud of our great team, delivering the absolute best wedding videos available in Columbia, South Carolina. We guarantee every video meets the quality standards we have come to be known for, and we always enjoy the opportunity to meet every bride and groom.

      We can't call ourselves newlyweds anymore, as we were married in September of 1998. In a twist of fate, a catastrophe at our own wedding sparked our desire to create wedding videos for couples. While we hired one of the best wedding photographers in our area, we decided to skimp on the videography and hire an amateur. Surely he could hold the camera and give us something better than a family member cuold do, right? Unfortunately, very wrong. The people we hired had professional equipment, but did not know how to use the equipment or provide even adequate coverage of a wedding. It took us several YEARS to get our video from him, and we were sorely disappointed with the results - uninteresting picture with horrible quality and virtually nonexistent audio.

      After being so disappointed we began talking to other couples about their experience with their wedding video and it was very similar. It was then and there that Marianna and I decided that we would do something different and break free from the mold of your typical wedding video company. Since we began filming back in 2006 things have come a long way. We have developed a product that is like no other wedding video and is referred to by the brides and grooms we work with as our wedding movies. Our wedding movies are offered under our second company name, Player Wedding Films. We also have developed a very high quality documentary product which is offered here at Absolute Productions and Media and even though the style is far simpler than our wedding movies, the documentary videos allow all couples the opportunity of a quality wedding video no matter their budget.

      As Wedding videographers we don't have a ton of time for extracurriculars. The work involved with videos is gargantuan!! Even though this is the case Marianna and I do have a variety of interests, and the time we do have, we value as precious spending with our family and friends. We have two beautiful boys, Matthew and Daniel, who are two years apart. They are absolutely a blast to be around, and of course we love them dearly. They are a lot different, personality-wise, but thankfully they love each other and tend to get along for the most part.


All our best,
James & Marianna Player
