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

      Thanks for visiting our site, and learning about our high quality Southport, North Carolina wedding videos. Hopefully you have learned enough here to choose us as your wedding videographer in Southport, North Carolina.

      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, and my wife's name is Marianna (pretty, isn't it?). We are the two "behind the curtain", overseeing and having a hand in every step of your wedding video from consultations to filming to editing to delivery. We make a great team, and you can count on us to give you the best wedding video in Southport, North Carolina.

      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.

      Disappointment led to conversations with other couples - we wanted to know if their wedding video was actually decent. Unfortunately, many of them had similar stories and experiences. Marianna and I felt the calling to wedding videography, and set about to get the skills to start a unique wedding video company offering videos couples would be thrilled with. We have grown a lot since we started filming in 2006. Our wedding movies, as they have come to be referred to, are like Blockbuster hits, starring the bride and groom, and were so wildly popular we had to create a second company to handle the business - Player Wedding Films. Absolute Productions and Media has continued offering the highest quality documentary, "as it happened", wedding videos available, so that couples of every budget can have a quality wedding video.

      Wedding videographers don't have a lot of time for extracurriculars, even though Marianna and I have a variety of interests, we spend our weekends at weddings and our weeks editing massive amounts of footage and meeting with couples interested in our services. 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
