Brisbane Wedding Videographer
Hi! I'm Michaela
the Principal Videographer at Your Wedding Story.
If you’re the kind of couple who want to capture the warmth and joy between family and friends on your wedding day minus the cheesy, lovey dovey, Hollywood style footage that makes you cringe, we will be a great fit!
Weddings are this rare moment in time when everyone you love comes together to cheer for you. A rare moment when it is OK to cry in public, and talk about love, and acknowledge the people who have shaped you.
That's what I capture in a time capsule so you can relive it again and again, immersing you back in those moments in a way photos alone can’t.

Michaela and her team from Your Wedding Story were incredible from start to finish - I honestly couldn't recommend them more highly!
Do you only film Brisbane weddings?
Although I am Brisbane-based, my team and I are available throughout South East Queensland.
Do you offer wedding photography?
Find out what we offer on our photography page >>
Do you offer raw footage?
We don't offer the raw files, as these are quite unwatchable... but we do offer lightly edited extended footage from the whole day which is a wonderful keepsake. More about our videography packages >>
Can I choose the songs?
Most couples get me to choose songs that match the mood of their day and their story. Occasionally couples like input into song choices which is fine too. Just be aware that most popular music isn't available for licensing, so we will be choosing from independent artists, with only a few exceptions.
My fiance is camera shy - is that a problem?
I meet with each couple for a coffee prior to the wedding so that when I turn up on your wedding day you feel more at ease. And it's my job to make you feel relaxed in front of the camera, and in most instances, forget I am even there. So I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to achieve this!

What should I look for in a wedding videographer?
- An important question to ask a prospective wedding videographer is how many camera angles will be used. There is a marked difference in the quality of productions where more than one camera angle is used - even where the second or third cameras are "unmanned".
- Another thing to look for in a wedding videographer is not only their camera skills, but their ability to put together a compelling story in the edit suite. Storytelling is a different skill to camera work!
- And of course it's vital you hire a videographer you feel comfortable around!
- If you are based in Brisbane, it's often a good idea to hire a Brisbane wedding videographer, no matter where your wedding is being held. Being local allows us to meet in person before the wedding really easily.
Do you charge a travel fee?
Only for weddings located more than 90 minutes drive from Brisbane. Don't stress if you are at a venue like Gabbinbar Homestead, Spicers Hiddenvale, Maleny Manor or Weddings at Tiffany's as these fall within the 90 minutes - you're all good!
