I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lee and the Clickspark team, and am consistently blown away by their authentic documentation of wedding days! Photographers and videographers don’t always peacefully coexist, but this is one team that is uber creative, professional, courteous, and I truly enjoy working with! Whenever my clients ask me for videographer recommendations in the Baltimore area – Clickspark is my go-to! I’m continuing the Wedding Vendor Spotlight series featuring Q&A with some of my favorite friendors (vendor friends!), and I’m pleased to introduce Lee Morton from Clickspark!
How did you get into cinematography?
Well thanks! Great word.. adore. I think when people sign up with having us capture their wedding – we go all in. It’s more than a wedding film for next month. We’re here to create a movie that in decades your children will laugh at – like your hairstyle at the time and what you were wearing. So in half a century your grandchildren will know what their grandparents were like in their hay day. *Grandma had moves back then* type comments. We’re here to create something that maybe in 25 years the path is rocky… re-watch this film to remember why. We’re easy going, passionate and love to be in the moment.
Whew – it doesn’t happen without a great team. I’m incredibly fortunate to be surrounded by insanely passionate artists. (Both internally and among the wedding pros that pour their hearts out for couples). People that care deeply about delivering beauty and memorable moments. Zach has been instrumental in being a storyteller with Clickspark – filming at events followed by editing the pieces creatively to tell a story. Always pushing himself to try new things and keeping his standards very high. He’s also a great athlete, has a cute lab puppy, bike rider… and a real wise guy, but he means well. Tim is a cinematographer that shoots with us. He’s talented, works his tail off and knows a beautiful shot when he sees it. He also has this crazy blonde hair like a surfer but actually lives in MD. We’ve also recently added Hannah to the Clickspark family and going to blog about her soon.
What should couples bring to a consultation?
Bring us your story. How’d you meet? How quickly we’re you head over heels on the first date or was it actually a bomb? Tell us what Sunday mornings are like for you.. Bring us your vision for the big day. Bring your specific likes and dislikes about films of ours so we can make yours awesome. Bring a palate for good coffee.
