Hi, I'm Richard
A Brisbane wedding videographer offering fun, natural & candid wedding videos in Brisbane, The Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Toowoomba and the Sunshine Coast.
Thank you so much for visiting my website and considering me for your wedding video!
I’m seriously so excited about your wedding! I hope I can convince you to see the true value of wedding videography. Not because it makes me money, but because out of all of the wonderful couples I have had the chance to work with not one was upset they got a video. Why? Because as a wedding videographer, what I do is more than film your wedding day. It is capturing the memories of the day. The voices and emotions of your special day.
This video will outlive you and me. Think about that. What if you had the technology to go back see your grandparents wedding? To see what they were like on their wedding day. That is what I am passionate about. Producing a video which you will love not just straight after your wedding day but 20, or even 50 years after your wedding. I produce herilooms.
I’m here to help you… so you can take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy the day. That’s why I help you along every step of the way. Just picture me as a member of the family, but with a fancy camera!
Binge Watch My Recent Wedding Films
A picture is 1000 words… so a 5 – 10 minute video at 24 frames per second is 240,000 words. Wow that’s a long story!

Affordable Wedding Videography
All-day coverage isn't an extra. It's a given.
I’ve got your back – you won’t miss a single moment (that’s my Nothing Missed guarantee).
My packages are flexible
You can add stuff at any time before or after your wedding. Want your FULL ceremony or speeches video edited after your wedding (not just the highlights)? No problem! We filmed that.
Your socials are covered.
I produce a killer 60-second social trailer 48 hours after your wedding day which you can share with your family and friends!
Flare Films isn't a big faceless studio.
I care about perfectly tailored videos for YOU and YOUR love story. Not pumping out another wedding highlight for Bride #243.
No more boring wedding videos.
My videos are never a boring montage of pretty clips with a backing track. We film documentary style, and try to capture as much audio as we can and include it in your video!
Your wedding is a day-long love story. It’s a special day between a loving couple and the people that love and care for them. As a wedding videographer I know my place. I arrive at your wedding day ready to capture priceless, candid moments, not orchestrate, interrupt or direct you. I blend in and are never intrusive. Working with Flare Films, you won’t be asked to constantly stop what you’re doing to pose, or smile. We shoot intimately, yet we do this at a comfortable distance. After a couple of minutes you will probably forget we’re even there, allowing you to be natural and relaxed.
I’m wary of creating a ‘template’ for my wedding videos. Why? Because every couple and every wedding is unique. Every single wedding video I aim to take a unique approach and create a distinctive story between two special people with their very own character and flavour based on their very own personalities and stories. If you are after a generic ‘just set and forget’ wedding video, we’re probably not the wedding videographers for you.
I understand the importance of hearing back from suppliers like wedding videographers quickly. You need to know whether we’re available or unavailable in order for you to make your arrangements. Don’t hesitate to check our availability and we’ll be in touch ASAP. I promise you’ll enjoy dealing with me from your first contact right through to the last.
My dream for my couples is for them to feel like they are watching a movie when they view their film. We shoot on modern DSLR cameras to capture your day with cinema quality equipment. We’re not in the business of just shooting wedding videos – we want to constantly push the boundries of what can be achieved.
One of the ways we differentiate ourselves from the vast majority of wedding videographers is through our incredible wedding packages. We shoot absolutely everything, for every wedding we attend, from bride prep to when the dancing starts to wind down. Why? Your wedding day only happens once, and we don’t want you to miss a moment! That’s why all of our packages include full day coverage, and we include all the ‘nice to haves’ in our cheapest package. That means you get drone cinematography (if allowed in your location) full audio coverage, and more at the entry level pricing. Our pricing changes based on the videos we edit, and you can upgrade to have more comprehensive coverage at anytime! Please visit our package page to learn more.

We are completely blown away by how amazing the videos are!!!!
We are over the moon and can’t thank you enough! The video you provided perfectly captured every part of our day.
So many people have commented on how great Richard was on the day as well as the video 🙂
Thank you, thank you, thank you again! Wishing you both all the best for the future.

“Choosing to have Flare Films document our wedding day was the best decision I could have made in the lead up to our wedding day.”
Richards’s ability to capture us, our love and all the other little things that happened on our wedding day (even though the conditions were less than ideal) was more than I could ever have imagined. Years from now I am going to look back on this wedding video and see the food and the reception and all the details I spent so much time planning. I can’t wait to eventually show this video to my kids, so they can see the same love and happiness that we have now. Richard gave us something that we will look back on forever! That’s priceless!!

Thank you for visiting my website!
Thank you for checking out my small patch of the internet and for even considering me to video your wedding day.
If you’re looking for a relaxed and easy going wedding videographer then you’ve come to the right place. When Flare Films started, I was truly focused on standing out from other wedding videographers in my space. I wanted to be different, but mostly I wanted to be better! As your wedding videographer, I don’t just ‘video your wedding’ I capture priceless moments and memories – the stuff you want to remember forever. I combine professional, cinematic imagery with a documentary style of editing to create a breathtaking wedding film that you can’t stop replaying. If this is something you are after please don’t hesitate to contact me, even if you just need an answer to a question, I am happy to help.
Let’s keep those memories forever!
Frequently Asked Questions
For anywhere within 90 minutes of Brisbane I don’t charge a travel fee. If your wedding destination is further afield please enquire about travel fees.
I believe in being transparent. You can view all of my prices on the Packages page if you haven’t already. Depending on your location there may be a small travel fee.
Unfortunately not. For two reasons: 1. I am often booked far in advance and thus prefer to offer only full day packages. 2. Wedding couples I work with are so thankful that we capture every part of their wedding day and they can look back on every moment after their day. I don’t want future couples to miss out on this!
The way my calendar fills up is a mystery to me! Often there are some dates that are left open and others which I end up having multiple requests for (first in best dressed!). My suggestion is to enquire with your wedding day and try your luck!
I specialise in wedding videography, however I’m happy to team up with your preferred photographer for the day. I can also recommend to you a selection of awesome photographers who I have loved working with in the past.
I use two cameras. I use one as a stationary camera on a tripod so I can capture multiple angles during the ceremony and speeches. The other camera is a ‘roving’ camera which I use to capture dynamic shots throughout the day.
Yes! I use a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom. It is a super portable drone that allows me to get cinematic aerial images at almost any location. *Please note* that at some locations I may be unable to film aeirial footage due to CASA restrictions.
