South Carolina Wedding Photography

Behind the scenes infor on the Charleston, South Carolina wedding videographers.

      We appreciate your visiting us and learning more about our high quality SC wedding video documentaries. We hope you've found enough information to move forward in choosing us as the perfect videographer for your Charleston, South Carolina wedding.

      We also want to give you a brief but more personal introduction to the people behind Absolute Productions and Media's awesome wedding videography. We enjoy getting to know each couple through the process of creating their wedding videos, and we thought it would be fun if you knew a little about us too.


      My name is James Player, and my wife is Marianna. We are so proud to be the couple behind the wedding videos that are the absolute best available in Charleston, South Carolina. We are very hands-on throughout the whole process of creating your video, from consultations, to filming, editing, and delivery. Every step of the way, you can count on us and our team to deliver a wedding video you'll love.

      Marianna and I got married before either of us had ever thought about having a wedding videography business, and we hired an amateur videographer for our wedding, trying to save on budget because we had hired an expensive photographer. Let's just say that if you pick the wrong videographer for your wedding day, you can't go back for a do-over. The day only happens once, but our video turned out so poorly, we have been regretting it (and in my wife's case, literally crying about it) for years since and years to come. The video of our beautiful wedding day was shaky, blurry, uninteresting, whispered from a distance through a tunnel during a tornado, and took literally YEARS for the videographer to hand over! (We see why he was holding it hostage, definitely not the best work in town.

      More than disappointed, feeling angry and cheated, we talked to other just-married couples, and heard very similar stories of pitiful wedding videos. Inspired to help other couples absolutely love their wedding videos, we plunged headfirst and passionately into acquiring the skills to become the best wedding videographers in Charleston, South Carolina. Along the way, we began offering cinematic wedding movies with the feel of Hollywood blockbusters, and these unique and captivating wedding videos became so popular, we branched off to create a second company, Player Wedding Films, to focus specifically on them. Absolute Productions and Media still focuses on its original intent of providing documentary style wedding videos of the absolute highest quality that every couple can afford.

      Our wedding video business takes up the majority of our time, and we find it very rewarding, but we value our family time as the most important. We have two wonderful sons, Matthew and Daniel, who are a blast and a joy. We're so lucky to have them, and love watching them grow (although it happens way too fast!). They are so different in personality, are two years apart, but thankfully get along well (for boys). Marianna and I have a variety of interests, but not much time for extracurriculars after weddings, family and friends.


All our best,
James & Marianna Player
