Wild Bridge Films
vignette | n. /vin'yet/
a brief, evocative account of an event
That's what we make at Wild Bridge Films. Wedding Day Vignettes. Brief — because long is boring and we have laid to rest the days of wedding videos that no one ever watches. But evocative — meaning we carefully pack your video with the most beautiful moments and memories to evoke the feelings of your day in a cinematic style that combines gorgeous high definition footage with the nostalgia of REAL Super 8mm film. We don’t just make wedding videos... we craft an experience of your day that you can watch 87 times in a row and it will never grow boring. Plus, it's the perfect way to share your day with those who can't attend, and something to look forward to viewing again every anniversary.
Review Wild Bridge Films

WOW, is all I could say when my husband and I received our video films! I am just in awe from beginning to the end how they crafted our wedding day film using the vintage film to the song selection to the different angles and moments captured! My husband and I had a wedding planner who communicated with them on logistics and scheduling of the meetings etc. but our initial interaction with them during the consultation meeting I knew they would bring nothing but peace, calmness, and excitement on our wedding day! As a working couple, they complemented each other perfectly in how they communicated and worked to make sure they grasped every detail we wanted and those we didn't know we would want at the time! The day of the wedding I can hardly remember them being there in the midst of what was going on but looking at the videos they CAPTURED every emotion and special moment! Watching the videos I cried and felt the emotion I felt on the day of my wedding! The video clarity, how they pieced together our vintage film, the sound of the videos, and angles during the ceremony were spectacular! They truly have a talent and have perfected their craft! From the littlest of detail packaging our films in colored tissue paper the same as my wedding colors , to personalized case and flash drive with our names and date of our wedding, to the quality of our videos my husband and I are thankful they were there on our wedding day to capture that special day for us! Our total rating hands down would be a 4.9/5 for as mentioned we had a wedding planner handle the coordination and communication of their contract and details of arrival on that day, but from our interaction and experience with them, we could not have chosen a better couple to be a part of capturing our special day!
We had extremely high hopes with our wedding video but we were completely blown away when we received our wedding videos!! My husband and I have not stopped watching them over and over and all of our friends and family cannot stop raving about how amazing they are!! We searched near and far to find the perfect wedding videographers for us, the exact opposite of a cookie cutter; videographers that would capture moments instead of acting and we definitely could not have found better! Derrick and Christy from Wild Bridge Films were such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process, staying in touch through emails and video calls whenever we needed to chat. They were so helpful and accommodating! Throughout the entire wedding day, they were both so professional, nobody even noticed them there, everyone was so comfortable and able to be themselves! It was exactly what we wanted!! I would highly recommend Wild Bridge Films to anyone in need of amazing videographers, who are willing to travel and all around AWESOME human beings!!! They're like a breathe of fresh air!! You will not be disappointed!!
Richmond weddings take reviews seriously. Our vendors cannot pay to modify or remove reviews.
We are Derrick and Christy Collins, a husband & wife team located in Richmond, Virginia, and we were made to tell stories. We believe the day you get married is one of the most important stories worth telling and re-living. That is why we choose to make wedding films that are an experience of beauty, emotion, and nostalgia, rather than just some nice footage put together cookie-cutter style in the order of your day. We truly love making art from wedding footage, our centering question to ourselves being, “If we could bottle up this couple’s love and commitment for each other and then transform it into a film, what would it look like, what would it feel like?” We love recognizing the beauty of how you choose to design your wedding as well as the honest candidness of natural interactions amidst loved ones, and we choose to focus on capturing those things in a cinematic way instead of seeking to direct events for the sake of cinema. We understand that weddings are first and foremost about two people giving their lives to each other, and, as videographers, we consider it our task to capture that inspiring act, and all the moments before and after, with as little interference as possible.
When it comes to planning a wedding, we know there are so many choices and details and vendors. And we know that the only vendors you will continue to work with once the wedding day is over is the photographer and videographer, so it is our goal as videographers to not only provide you with lasting memories with the wedding films we create, but to do our part in limiting the stress and making it an enjoyable experience for you throughout planning, the big day, and beyond.
