A.B. Rich Films – Our Story – Award Winning Twin Cities Wedding Videographer

A.B. Rich Films is an award winning Twin Cities wedding videographer in Minnesota. Please take a moment to learn about how we became a business and why we love what we do.

A.B. Rich Films is who we are. Creating wedding films that tell a compelling story is what we do as a Twin Cities wedding videographer. Our passion for telling stories through film is why we do it. A.B. Rich Films came to be in January of 2012. It all started back in the day, somewhere in the early 2000’s. Brad had a video camera and therefore began filming various things. Sometimes people would ask him to film their wedding or he would be out filming events with his friends. That was back before he really knew what he was getting himself into. Over the years, Brad began to become more serious about his passion for videography. Brad has always been a very creative person by nature. When he was a child, he had a love for drawing. He studied under an artist in Kansas City, Kansas, where he learned a lot about drawing techniques and became quite good at his craft. That curiosity for creativity and art never subsided. It did however, manifest itself in different ways through film.

When Brad moved to Minnesota in 2005 to live closer to his girlfriend (me!), he started paying closer attention to the videographers in the area since he had an interest in videography. Over the years since then, Brad found a Twin Cities wedding videographer to be his mentor in the videography industry. He learned everything he could about filming weddings and telling stories through film. Eventually he became a second shooter for that company, and then a lead shooter for that company.

Brad and Amberleigh Rich of A.B. Rich Films

Finally, in 2012, we decided to take the huge leap and start our own business, A.B. Rich Films. Our business name is a combination of both of us, and our passion for Films. My name is Amberleigh, which is the A in A.B. Rich Films. Brad is the B in A.B. Rich Films, and telling stories through film is what we are passionate about. Hence, our wedding videography business is called A.B. Rich Films.

Over the years since we began our wedding film company, A.B. Rich Films, we have been graciously humbled by the amazing clients we have had the opportunity to work with. We have also loved having the opportunity to work with so many other professionals in the Minnesota wedding industry. We have made a great network of friends and peers in the Minnesota wedding videography scene. We have also had the amazing opportunity to work with some very talented Minnesota wedding photographers. The Minnesota wedding planners we have worked with have never ceased to amaze us with their ability to make sure everything falls into place perfectly on the wedding day. We’ve made great connections with various Minnesota DJ’s and Minnesota Wedding Bands and we’ve had the chance to film at some of the most beautiful and unique wedding venues. It is truly an honor to work in the wedding videography industry in Minnesota. We are so blessed at A.B. Rich Films!

We have literally worked as hard as we can to always become a better Twin Cities wedding videographer than we were yesterday. We tirelessly work to improve our video quality, and provide a video product that our clients love completely. I would dare to say that we are nowhere near perfection and we will likely never achieve it, but we set high standards for ourselves so that we always find opportunities to learn more and become better in every aspect of our business.

Finally, we would like to thank all of our past clients who have left us the most heart warming, uplifting and honest reviews of our company A.B. Rich Films. Because of these clients, we have won The Knot Best of Weddings and Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice Awards every year since 2012. Having won The Knot Best of Weddings 5 years in a row, we are also in the Knot Hall of Fame. Sometimes we have to ask ourselves “Is this real life?” and then we remind ourselves of all of the hard work, day in and day out, that we have put in to bring A.B. Rich Films to the point we are at today. Cheers to another 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 amazing years!

A Wedding Film Review that Made Our Day

We were so excited to receive this unexpected email today from a bridesmaid that was in a wedding film Brad recently produced. It gives us butterflies when we read such kind and honest words. This is why we film weddings. This is why we have A.B. Rich Films. We get to capture some of the most intimate and memorable moments on film for families. Wedding films are not the same as they used to be. They are no longer long drawn out documentary style point and shoot videos. Now they are story telling, attention grabbing, emotionally tugging wedding stories. Below is the email we received that inspired us to write this blog post:

Hi Brad and Amberleigh,

I just wanted to send you a note to let you know that your highlight video of Laura and Nathan’s day was truly a joy to watch. I never really gave much thought to having a videographer at my wedding — I always imagined something similar to home videos from birthdays, just capturing the day from the same vantage point, but not really bringing life into the memory. Watching your video, I was blown away. You don’t just have talent. You have a gift. Thank you so much for giving these memories to Laura and Nathan so that they can share them and cherish them with their friends and family, and one day, their children and grandchildren. You truly captured the joy of the day.

I’ll keep you at the top of my list when I plan my wedding some day! You have more than earned your place at the top of The Knot’s “Best Of”!

Krystal

How Minnesota Wedding Films Capture More Than Just The Day

How Minnesota Wedding Films Capture More Than Just The Day

Today I found myself meandering through my Facebook page when I was suddenly caught off guard. I realized I was reading a post written about our Minnesota Wedding Videography Company, A.B. Rich Films. The mom of one of the brides whose wedding Brad filmed posted this along with a Vimeo link to her daughter’s wedding film:

“Was feeling a little melancholy for some reason this morning, so decided to find one of those happy moments in your life when you know everything is good. Love that my mom is in this video as it was the last time she was out. I know I have posted this many times, but it just brightens my day and my world. I am so thankful that we had A. B. Rich Films there to capture these wonderful moments, so that no matter how old and forgetful I get, I can pull this up and feel happy. It’s the little things in life, make sure you look for them, they’re all around us. Happy Tuesday facebook peeps.” ~Karen

I expect to find Minnesota Wedding Videography reviews of A.B. Rich Films on The Knot and on Wedding Wire. I do not expect to read such a beautiful heartwarming review when I am perusing my Facebook page. Two things occurred to me when I read this review. The first thing that occurred to me was how absolutely amazing it made me feel when I read this unexpected wedding videographer review. I am so thankful for these little moments that lift my spirits and inspire me to become even better and focus more intensely on my business and my passion. The second thing that occurred to me which I hadn’t really thought of before is how our wedding films impact so many people, even those we would have never realized. In this case, our wedding film allowed a daughter to relive sweet memories of her mother. Our MN wedding film incorporated the last footage of her mom, the brides grandmother, while she was still living. Though she has since passed away, our wedding film has provided someone with beautiful memories of her mom captured on film that she can watch to “find one of those happy moments in your life when you know everything is good.”

Yes, a wedding film captures the important events of your wedding day and that is very important and a big reason for hiring a professional Minnesota Wedding Videographer. A wedding film also captures powerful emotion reflected through moving picture and audio that helps tell a special story that is uniquely yours. There are many interactions caught on film during your wedding day. Your wedding film is timeless. It will speak to you and others in different ways throughout different times in your life. Hiring a professional Minnesota Wedding Videographer to film your wedding day is one of the best decisions you will never regret.

Sincerely,

Brad and Amberleigh Rich

Twin Cities Wedding Videographer Reviews are so important to our small business as a wedding videography professional in the industry. Read the latest reviews A.B. Rich Films has received on The Knot from two of our awesome brides:

“WOW!!! Honestly, I would HIGHLY reccomend A.B. Rich Films to ANYONE!!!! You really can put all your trust in them!! They were the only “vendors” that I had not personally known before my wedding. But, due to reading reviews and staying up crazy late watching video after video of people that I didn’t know and crying with each one.. I knew that this was the videographer I was going to have at my wedding! .. Not only did I not regret hiring A.B. Rich Films but it truly was worth every penny! I am forever thankful for A.B. Rich Films capturing all of our special day! From beginning to end.. Brad and Amberleigh were nothing but professional, understanding, and generous!! Your wedding day goes by so fast, you can quickly forget many things throughout the day (that you put so much money into) how cool that you can have it all to watch back on high quality video!! THANK YOU A.B. RICH FILMS!! YOU’RE THE BEST!!!” ~Amber

__________________________

“My husband and I couldn’t be happier with A B Rich Films! Our experience was positive and straight-forward from start to finish. To start, Brad and Amberleigh met us to discuss our vision and hopes and had great prepared questions so that they could get a better idea of what was most important to us now and also got us to think about who and what we would want to have captured to remember in the future. As a result, our Wedding Story highlight video perfectly captures the emotion of the day with well placed bits of humor and fun in between. Throughout the video, you can tell who we both are as individuals and as a couple.

Brad was a total ninja and blended in throughout the day so that the cameras were not distracting and natural, genuine moments were captured. As a result, our Wedding Story highlight video perfectly captures the emotion of the day with well-placed bits of humor and fun in between. Through watching our video, you can tell who we both are as individuals and as a couple. Also, on a technical note, he’s very knowledgeable about microphones and the other camera equipment so audio is clear and the images are high quality.

We know we are biased, because it was the story of our own wedding day, but we also received a ton of raving reviews about our Wedding Story video from friends and family. Having this video also allowed us to share our wedding day with family and friends who could not make it. Our photographers even had positive things to say about working with Brad all day. Without a doubt, we will treasure our wedding videos for years to come! Two thumbs up!” ~Kelsey

When brides and grooms leave honest reviews such as the two examples above, they have no idea the awesome impression they are leaving on future brides and grooms. Their detailed reviews help people we don’t even know gain some insight on what they can expect from A.B. Rich Films on their wedding day. We are so appreciative of each and every review we receive and we certainly don’t take them for granted. Thank you so much for your Twin Cities wedding videographer reviews of A.B. Rich Films!

Brad and Amberleigh Rich
