We’re super excited here at Cinemate as Gregg along with his partner Claire are expecting a baby. Simon and Tom got involved to create a gender reveal video for them as you can see above.
Gregg here now: Going into the shoot we were filled with excitement and nerves, I can now relate to all our couples who say they don’t like being in front of the camera. However, as soon as we arrived at the park Simon and Tom put myself and Claire at ease and it instantly felt like a walk in the woods with friends.
Because Covid is playing havoc with us sharing the excitement with our families in person we wanted to create something we could share with them to announce the gender of our baby, the reactions over facetime and zoom as we sent the video to everyone was amazing! Once the excitement calmed down one of the main comments was, you should offer this to other couples it’s awesome! And it’s not something we’ve decided to do lightly we’ve been considering family films and photography for a while, Simon had his first of three babies 8 years ago and it was something we thought about and it’s been bubbling away since then.
So we’re finally offering family films and photos to our couples and other families in Scotland, as you know we’ve focused on films for the wedding market however for our family shoots we are going for a hybrid photo and video offering.
