New Zealand

I'm Jen & my partner Andy are both photographers and filmmakers from little ol Newcastle in NSW Australia. We're heading to the beautiful Aotearoa to settle our hunger to explore and take in nature and meet you wonderful people and celebrate your love.

We first visited Te Waipounamu in early 2018 and we truly loved it. Since then, we recently came back through all of September and October 2022 to photograph and film some weddings. We will be back here in parts of 2023 and 2024 with February fully booked out.

We shoot many weddings amongst other things such as live music and events, promotional and training content for businesses, digitising old media and so on. And when we're not busy working, we're out camping or doing something outdoors with our dog or hanging out with friends and family.

We cannot thank Jen & Andy from Roam Ahead Weddings enough for their incredible Videography services. They are true MASTERS OF THEIR CRAFT! We were blown away by what they captured of our wedding day and how amazing the quality is. Not only is Jen the most beautiful, kind, supportive human but she 1000% cares about making your day super special. She went above and beyond. Amazing communication and delivered an exceptional product that brought us to tears of happiness. Thank you for everything guys, we could not recommend you highly enough. You will not regret booking with Roam Ahead!!!!!! X

1000% cares about making your day super special

After having a stressful time trying to find a photo/video team we stumbled across Roam Ahead. They made the whole process a breeze from booking to the actual day and their communication was A++. On the day they made us all feel very relaxed and the quality of the photos and video that we received are next level amazing. All of the special shots that we wanted were achieved as well as some fantastic candid shots also. You absolutely won’t be disappointed booking this magic dream team and would for all future events.

Communication was A++

Thank you so so much to you and Andrew, you guys have done such an amazing job. So many people commented on how great you guys were. 🥰 So happy and lucky to have you guys there. You made it so fun 🤩

I LOVE IT! 😍 I can’t thank you guys enough for how you have captured our day

YOU MADE IT SO FUN

Thank you so much for our beautiful photos Jen, we love you. They are just amazing! Thank you so much for your constant hard work.

WE LOVE YOU

Jen was extremely helpful and efficient in her delivery. She gave us options on song choices and kept us informed on her progress. The final output exceeded our expectations and will be something my husband and I will cherish forever. It is clear that her attention to detail and of the particulars is why her work is so great. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone who wants wedding videography

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

We watched the full video over the weekend and absolutely loved it! There's so many little bits we missed on the day that we could watch again on the video

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!

I’ve built a range of packages to choose from, where pricing starts at $3,200 through to $6,250 with payment plans available & options to custom build your own package! Pricing varies depending on the service you desire: eg: video or photo or both.

Elopements & Micro weddings are lower than my standard wedding packages.

What about pricing?

Super8 film is a way of recording video back in the 60s era! Despite the age of this media type, it's having a HUGE come back where filters to fake this look is massively trending all over social media. Why fake the super 8 look when we can actually film on it? Trust me, its different but a whole lot better than those filters faking it. If you wish to give super 8 a go - I guarantee you won't be disappointed! In fact, you will be so glad you gave it the chance and everyone is going to LOVEEEE it!

What makes this media type so special other than the look? Not many people can master this craft & it is quite expensive to buy this film, develop it and digitise it.
Buying one film reel + processing alone is about $100. The cameras themselves are hard to come by and range from $700-$3K for working quality film cameras. Digitising can easily add up too.
In regards to your wedding - we cover those costs!

Your film reels will actually last for a very long time. Far longer than flash drives, dvds, vhs tapes, handycam tapes and probably even us and our life -time.

With this service, you will receive this footage incorporated into your highlight film + the added bonus of another edit specifically just of Super 8 footage + you get to keep the film reel/s too! Perfect for handing down as your family heirloom for your future generations.

One film reel (cartridge) records around 3 minutes, so we can use as many film reels as we can if you're keen? One massive positive with this also, is that we digitise and scan the film all in-house with our 4K (resolution) scanner. This is something we’re quite proud about and absolutely love (this is also our other business - digitising and archiving of historic and family films).

Here are a few examples that we have digitised:
• Spacey Jane Super 8 Video - Digitised by Hunter Lake & Coast Digitising 

Wedding video (Andrew & Phoebe) which has Super 8 footage we shot incorporated into their highlight video

What is Super 8 or 8mm Film?

Heck Yeah, we do!
Get in touch so we can tailor a package to suit you.

Do you cover Elopements or micro weddings?

Well, you’re going to receive double the amount of footage and shots, so why not? It’s a safer option if you’re wanting anything over 6hrs coverage as well, as the day is pretty non-stop for us. Having the two shooters, allow for a variety of different angles and perspectives, throughout the entire day.

How is an additional Videographer or Photographer a good idea?

FAQs

This shoot will be roughly a 1.5hr-2hr shoot of us frolicking around having fun, laughing our guts out and having an absolute ball whilst you two get a little more familiar with being in front of the camera in an easy going environment. You will get to know me a lot better too, and see that it’s not that scary to be in front of the camera too. IDEA - these images could be used as your wedding invites!?

Why should I consider a Pre-wedding / engagement shoot?

Turnaround times vary depending on the time of the year and to what services are provided. A good estimate is 6-8 weeks.

We offer a rush fee for a faster turnaround time of 2-4 weeks. This means we will bring out the coffee, and edit throughout most days and nights to get this to you in this timeframe.
Please enquire about this if this is something you're after.

What's your turnaround time?

The final products will be handed over via an online digital link where you can download your files. Images will be on an elegant gallery where you can view, download and share with your friends and family. The videos will be the downloadable link.
And flash drives are provided upon request.

The footage is filmed & delivered in 4K resolution.

FAQs

It's a common way to reminisce - to physically hold and feel something. But mix that with quality and elegance. These albums will outlast us all! They're made from long lasting quality materials and are customisable to colours, style and aesthetic that your hearts desire. A lovely physical memento to keep on the coffee table, to give your parents, or grandparents to cherish and flick through.
