Rachael and Michael started VirtuReel Productions in 2016 and after filming and editing a variety of different events and occasions, they found that weddings were the most rewarding to be a part of. Since then they have filmed and edited over 300 love stories and have established their own wedding videography brand - VirtuWeddings.
"We love everything about weddings. Their fast paced nature keeps us on our toes and always makes for a unique and challenging day. You only have one chance to capture a genuine fleeting moment so it is important to be familiar with how a wedding day unfolds. We really have seen it all. From intimate adventure elopements to traditional ballroom celebrations, Rachael and I have been responsible for crafting hundreds of films based on the memories we collect from these cherished days."
meet your wedding videographers...
Wedding films have grown into a unique art form of their own in recent years. Traditional videos of previous generations have evolved into feature length documentary movies and polished highlight films that showcase the best moments of your wedding day.
Our films have the ability to document your life in ways you may not have considered, the emotions and feelings experienced on your wedding day will be forever be at your fingertips. We personally handcraft these films to withstand the test of time, with classic coloring and timeless storytelling, this will be you and your soul mates first family heirloom.
We try to capture your memories in their most genuine form so when we are with you, we are always filming with intention.
Highlight films are popular "montage" style films that focus on the highlights of the day. These videos are ten minutes or less and are easily shareable with friends and family throughout the years. With six and eight hours of coverage, you can expect to see scenes of all the main moments of your wedding day in your finished Highlight Film.
Documentary Films really dive into the intricate details of your wedding day and are best viewed with an audience. These "wedding movies" are typically 1-2 hours in length and includes your full ceremony, and extended scenes of dancing, toasts etc. You can also include family or wedding party "interviews" upon request. All of these extravagant moments are creatively edited together into one perfect movie worthy of an audience at the end of your busy wedding season!

A signed agreement and a deposit will officially reserve your date. 2023 availability is limited and we are now scheduling consultations for the 2024 wedding year!
We will send a questionnaire a few months before your wedding to gather a few of the details such as wedding timeline, important moments you want featured, who will be giving toasts or speeches, etc.
Once you have all of your details complete, we will plan a strategy of how we envision the production day going. We prefer to film as naturally as possible with as little interference as possible, so being prepared with a plan before the wedding day is important.
Once completed, we will send an email with download instructions as well as a USB copy sent to your mailing address. After you receive your heirlooms, plan a movie night! Watching your films with the people you love most will be the ultimate finale to your wedding season and will bring back every memory you might have forgotten
"You HAVE to hire VirtuReel!! We hired VirtuReel for our wedding in June and we were blown away. We went with the highest package--documentary, trailer, and highlight reel. They went above and beyond to hear our story, get to know us as a couple, and give us footage that we will enjoy for the rest of our lifetime. Their videography is high quality and beautiful. They make sure to capture you as a couple with the intricate parts of your special day... moments that we could not see ourselves on our wedding day, along with our favorite memories of the day. Their work truly feels like a movie of one of the most special days of our life. I cannot imagine not having these videos. We have watched them over and over again and I know that we will for years to come. We LOVED their creative vision down to including "our song" in our video along with the special touches of interviews from our families and friends. We are BEYOND happy with our choose to use VirtuReel for our wedding and we know that you would be too! Book them now, you will not regret it!"
"So, I just want to say. 2 years later, I think that last minute decision to have a professional videographer was the best decision we made throughout the whole wedding planning, hands down. Having this video, with the music, getting to see our laughter, seeing our guests and their smiles, hearing the vows, hearing the poem written for our ceremony...all of it is just so special and so perfectly captured by y'all. Thank you for all you do and did then. You really made this bride feel so special, and definitely did NOT just make her cry at 1:30 in the morning! "
"My husband and I are SO thankful that we used Michael and Rachael as our videographers for our wedding day! VirtuReel Productions exceeded our expectations and delivered us film that truly allowed us to relive the best day of our lives. Not only are they talented videographers, but they are FUN! We recommend this couple to anyone in search of reasonably priced, superior quality videography. "
When you book with Virtu Weddings, you can be certain that we will do everything within our abilities to save all of the memories and surprises of your wedding day. We understand that this day is a culmination of decades of choices that led two families together, and it should be filmed with great purpose throughout.
