Filmmaker Marcella Hoekstra has been creating wedding films since 2005. Heirloom Pictures is a small, in-house boutique wedding film studio that crafts unique and personalized wedding films for its clients. 

What makes the experience "boutique"? Firstly, Marcella shoots lead camera at every Heirloom wedding and produces all highlights films herself. Also, the Heirloom Pictures team communicates with its clients every step of the way from "Hello" to "Here are your films, Enjoy!". 

By keeping our experienced production team small and consistent, it allows for intimacy with each project that ensures quality and attention to detail at every stage. Whether your wedding is "Big City" beautiful or intimate backyard elegance, we've got you covered.

Welcome to Heirloom Pictures!

HOW DO WE SHOOT?

I consider your wedding film and documentary, and rule number one of documentary filmmaking is never to get involved. We will never put our cameras in your face, we will never blind you with lights. We will also never direct you. The fun of documentary filmmaking is capturing natural and authentic moments. We simply aren't going to capture those moments if we are a constant distraction. Your wedding day is your wedding day, not our movie set. At the end of the night, the best thing my couples can say is, "We didn't even know you were there!", that means the couple was allowed to enjoy the natural flow of their day, that means a lot.



WHAT DO WE SHOOT?

Filmmaking is story telling, if we are truly going to tell the story of your day we will make sure we capture not only the grander moments of the day, but also the little things. The look on a grooms face when he sees his bride for the first time, the tear in your moms eye, the flowers girls giggling, the bride actually blushing...we love that stuff. We are a sentimental crew and genuinely enjoy capturing not only the images of the day but also the emotions.



HOW DO WE WORK?

Being a wedding filmmaker is being party of a team, a team of vendors that come together for a couple on one of the biggest days of their lives. Teamwork and communication are so important to make sure that all vendors are allowed to perform to the best of their ability. This is especially important for filmmakers and photographers. We are capturing the same subject all day...YOU! Without good communication we would be getting in each other shots and not providing you with the image quality you hired us for.
