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

      Thanks for taking the time to visit our website about our high quality South Carolina wedding video documentations. We hope that you have found all of the information that you were looking for as you search for the perfect videographer for your Gaston wedding.

      We'd like to take a minute and introduce ourselves on a more personal level. We really enjoy giving each wedding video our personal attention to detail and meeting our unique brides and grooms, so we hope you will enjoy "meeting" us through this page today.


      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 Gaston, South 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.

      We have been married for quite a while now, no longer newlyweds. Looking back, it's funny on one hand, but sad on the other - a disaster at our own wedding sparked our interest in wedding videography. We, like most couples, were trying to cut as many corners financially as we could, so we hired a cheap, amateur videographer. We had chosen an expensive photographer, and figured we didn't need much for a video, just a set up a camera and let it roll - how hard could it be? We soon found out. Well, I shouldn't say soon, since it took us several YEARS to get the videographer to give us our video. And we understand why he didn't want to give it to us, as it was NOT something to be proud of - the visuals were shaky, blurry, dim, bad lighting, and the audio, what audio? You mean you actually want to hear your vows? Sorry.

      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
