Co-pro­duc­ers Kris­ten Brown and Jane Ni­chol­son met with study­ing broad­cast jour­nal­ism and it shows in their work. With a strong fo­cus on sto­ry­telling, Ar­row & Knot’s videos take you on a doc­u­men­tary-style jour­ney, let­ting the key play­ers and can­did mo­ments speak for them­selves re­sult­ing in real, raw footage. Authen­tic and cine­matic, this pair knows how to get you in the feels.


It made sense when cre­ative power cou­ple/real-life part­ners Ash­ley Brown and Rich Don­a­van joined forces with the Applehead gang, known for its epic, ad­ven­tur­ous cap­tures. Sweep­ing drone shots of cou­ples run­ning through vine­yards and pad­dling across lakes are among the many stun­ning, scenic vis­tas on this photo/video duo’s high­light reel, prov­ing that the nos­tal­gia of a place and time can be just as vis­ceral as the peo­ple in it.


Twin sis­ters and co-pro­duc­ers Marie and Meaghan Wright are nat­u­ral born sto­ry­tellers. While their work in­cludes doc­u­men­taries (see The So­cial Shift and Trans­form) as well as cor­po­rate, non-profit and event-based films, they have a knack for cap­tur­ing the drama and de­tail of the big day, and the gen­uine emo­tion of all the peo­ple who are part of it.


Based in Cape Bre­ton but happy to travel to wher­ever your hap­pily ever af­ter is tak­ing place, Jourdan MacNeil cap­tures all the tiny mo­ments you might think no one’s pay­ing at­ten­tion to. Gen­tle kisses, cack­ling laugh­ter, ridicu­lous dance moves and the heart­pound­ing re­veal of a first look—her fine art films strive to catch ev­ery wed­ding emo­tion and de­liver them in a time­less, cre­ative pack­age.
