Our Philosophy


Our Philosophy

True authentic stories are the heartbeat of who we are.  

Whether we are filming a wedding or taking pictures of our son (which you can see on our instagram!) we are looking for real authentic moments.  Real life is epic enough on its own that we don’t need to fake it when we’re capturing it. 

This translates to how we capture weddings.  

When you look at your wedding film we want you to be taken back to that day as it actually happened.  It means we aren’t going to ask you to act for us.  We may help you find the right spot to get dressed so the light hits you just right, but we’ll never ask you do something that you’re not already doing on your wedding day.  Only authentic real moments in your wedding film!

It means you’ll probably forget that we are there and won’t be in the way of your guest.

We are incredible unobtrusive all day.  It means you’ll probably forget that we are there and we won’t be in the way of your guest.  Our style also means that we work great with other vendors!   Which is key to a successful wedding day!

Our Story

Our Story

How it all began

15 years ago (or so) in a medium sizes town in Texas I (Daniel) went to a college know for music and documentary filmmaking to learn how to be on the radio.  There's a special place in my heart for music.  While learning how to be a broadcaster I had to take a class on how to do video editing.  Boom, that class changed my life and I fell in love with filmmaking. From there I really started digging into the craft, began learning the technical side of handling a camera and changed my focus.  

Towards the end of college I was working at an investment firm to help make money and ended up staying with them after I graduated.  I would do video work for my Texas church, but it wasn’t my main focus.  My passion was still there, but I got trapped in the corporate world. 

Boom, that class changed my life and I fell in love with filmmaking.

Eventually it began suffocating my soul.  The daily grind of doing the same thing every day wore on me.  Fortunately, I had a friend who asked me to film her wedding.  I did it and instantly fell in love with documenting people’s journeys.  It was the first time I really knew what I wanted to do. Thus Latimer Studios began. 

Since then I’ve been able to transition to doing weddings full time.  I’ve added a wife, both as a cinematographer and to my life.  We had a son!

About two years ago we made another huge change to our business.  We started focusing on storytelling to really tell our couples stories and not only document an event.  There is no turning back once you start really getting into people’s life to tell their story.  It’s been a beautiful transition! 

I can’t wait to see what stories we will tell this year.

Lori Latimer - Cinematographer

Howdy!  I love orange.  I love storytelling.  I like cake, but love a pie. I play drums and can lip sync like no one's business.  When I'm filming a wedding I'm a ninja.  You're not going to know I was there, but I'm going to capture all those fun moments.  I'm also not afraid to get down and boogie on the dance floor.  Here I am recording a song on the drums.

Daniel Latimer - Cinematographer/Editor

Hi! I started my filmmaking journey early by making videos with my dad as a young child.  My love of film brought me to film school and I  fell in love with telling stories.  In addition to running Latimer Studios I am a commercial editor.  You can see some of my work on danlatimer.com.  Here is a picture of me with our son, Noah!

In case you didn't figure it out, we're married.  We made a video about eating our wedding cake on our one year anniversary (which was years ago now).  I still don't get why people eat that cake.  

Get to know us more on my (Daniel's) personal Instagram!  

Warning, it's probably a lot of shots of my son.
