about me

the man behind the lens

I love to film love......

Shoot Me Now Films is headed by me (Daniel Armitage) a lover of all things love, fashion and wedding related.

A passion for old cinema, strawberry milkshake and Tiramisu.

I love to capture a special moment and then recreate it into a lasting memory, a legacy, in a cinematic, and sometimes unexpected way.

I draw from my love of old cinema to create wedding films that are naturally captured but with a cinematic feel and look.

I love to work with couples who want something different and out of the ordinary, capturing their day in an unexpected day, focusing on the people and places that matter.

Your wedding is a story waiting to be told, so let's tell it together.

After studying Film at University level, specialising in editing, I originally wanted to pursue a career in Film Trailers. 

I moved to America to follow my ambition only to find myself back home after a short while with a burning desire to film weddings, to this day I don't know why but something in my gut told me I could create something unique, cinematic and more immersive than traditional wedding videos.

I absolutely love to film couples who want something different, their story told in a creative, exciting and sometimes completely surprising way. I focus on the details of your day, the people, the places, the feel, the atmosphere rather than spending my time filming shoes, jewellery and dresses on walls that a photographer could photograph a lot better and a lot quicker than myself.

I love to document peoples stories because everyones is different and unique,

Your wedding is a story waiting to be told, so let's tell it together.

information

what i offer and why

 
 

Let's tell a story. 

Let's tell your story, together, and lets start from the beginning. 

It’s personal to you, so let's tell your story like no one has told it before.

It all starts with an answer:

“I do”

In a world with billions of people, millions of lives and thousands of moments happening all at the same time, it is a privilege to capture the special moment in which you give yourself solely to another person. For me this is something I treasure and it comes across in my work.

To witness, experience and capture this is an honour and my life's work.

I only take a small amount of weddings each year in order to give myself whole heartedly to your story in the way you give yourselves to each other.

Travelling around the world with couples, documenting their story, is something I will never take for granted. The amazing places I’ve seen and the incredible people I have spent time with shape the way I work and motivate me to capture the essence of what’s important to you and the special place you have chosen for your story to continue.

 

Whether yours is a one day wedding in the Scottish Highlands or a 4 day desert adventure in Marrakech, I approach each day differently and eager to create something that will immerse you both in the experiences and moments of your celebration.

I give each couple the opportunity to create their own bespoke film with the options below.

I try to keep the options as minimal as possible while also offering individual choice as no wedding is the same.

I offer a 3-5 minute trailer

An 6-8 minute feature film

As well as options to include a longer 15-20 minute film, full ceremony and speeches, as well as the option to own the original footage in full.

I would love to hear more about your adventure and work alongside you to bring to life the story that has already begun……….. so head over to my contact page to get in touch.

Dan was an absolute dream to work with. The night before our wedding it became clear the weather was not going to cooperate with our carefully planned itinerary. Dan is definitely the videographer you want in Iceland as he was easily and calmly able to help us form a contingency plan with sites he knew. He kept us both relaxed and comfortable; we even forgot we were being filmed at times. Looking at this video, there are so many small but significant details and I really don’t know how he managed to capture them all as it seems that every time I watch I find a new one. Our family has been blown away so far at the cinematic experience that is so much more than your typical wedding video. I can never thank him enough for so beautifully capturing our story.

Dan, we cannot thank you enough; we are beyond thrilled with our trailer!!! How did you put this together in 2 weeks?! Right from the get go, you’ve been professional, gone above and beyond to accommodate our very last minute requests and really put us at ease throughout. A genuinely nice guy, you made the whole thing that much more enjoyable and we’re ecstatic with the film - I hope you’re ready for the referrals :)
— Jaslene + Shuja - Marrakech - 2018
We cannot get over just how much we LOVE this film! Daniel is a true artist with a unique vision and a warm, wonderful personality. Daniel quickly became a part of our family during his time with us and we will forever cherish those memories! There is nothing better than feeling completely comfortable with your vendors on the day of your wedding— not only does it add a special component to the day, it helps to make the video feel even more personal! We hope more New Yorkers include Daniel on their wedding day so we can give him a thank you hug in person! Now i’ll go watch the film 10 more times.... :)
— REBECCA + MARK - NEW YORK - 2018
Dan, Dan, Dan...You have done it again!!

We are absolutely in love with it!!! You have done such a stunning job of capturing all the emotion, laughter and general atmosphere of our day. It transported us back and made us both very tearful (again!). Well done. You have an awesome job, you get to share some momentous moments with people and then give them the opportunity to relive those moments again and again. It’s something quite special.

Your work is an art form and you belong in Hollywood but I don’t think a genuinely heartfelt and sincere man like yourself would fit in well there. Such talent and humility.
— Farah + Frere - 2017
Truly gifted artist, our experience with Daniel was remarkable and an absolute pleasure.
ALL key moments were captured from the perfect angle and the result is simply phenomenal.
Thank you so much for this. All the best!
