Behind the scenes infor on the Durham, North Carolina wedding videographers.

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

      Now, we'd like to take a brief moment, and give you some more personal background information on us. We hope you'll enjoy our little intro blurb as much as we enjoy meeting every couple whose wedding video we create.


      My name is James Player, and my wife is Marianna. We are so proud to be the couple behind the wedding videos that are the absolute best available in Durham, North Carolina. We are very hands-on throughout the whole process of creating your video, from consultations, to filming, editing, and delivery. Every step of the way, you can count on us and our team to deliver a wedding video you'll love.

      Marianna and I got married before either of us had ever thought about having a wedding videography business, and we hired an amateur videographer for our wedding, trying to save on budget because we had hired an expensive photographer. Let's just say that if you pick the wrong videographer for your wedding day, you can't go back for a do-over. The day only happens once, but our video turned out so poorly, we have been regretting it (and in my wife's case, literally crying about it) for years since and years to come. The video of our beautiful wedding day was shaky, blurry, uninteresting, whispered from a distance through a tunnel during a tornado, and took literally YEARS for the videographer to hand over! (We see why he was holding it hostage, definitely not the best work in town.

      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.

      Our wedding video business takes up the majority of our time, and we find it very rewarding, but we value our family time as the most important. We have two wonderful sons, Matthew and Daniel, who are a blast and a joy. We're so lucky to have them, and love watching them grow (although it happens way too fast!). They are so different in personality, are two years apart, but thankfully get along well (for boys). Marianna and I have a variety of interests, but not much time for extracurriculars after weddings, family and friends.


All our best,
James & Marianna Player
