New Beginnings Films is a wedding film house based in Austin, TX. We strive to create cinematic films that captivate people while inviting them into the story of the wedding day. Our approach to filmmaking is that of lifestyle and narrative compositions that focus on emotion and passion in every frame of the story.
Meet the Filmmakers
Hey Friends! My name’s Taylor Perkins and am the owner of New Beginnings Films. I’ve been described as sincere, silly, and easy-going… but I like to pride myself as a connoisseur of queso as well. I’ve been making films for as long as I can remember. I remember sneaking into my parent’s closet as a child and finding my dad’s VHS camcorder for the first time (yes, you remember those big things - the “Shoulder Boulders”). Ever since that moment, filmmaking has been the only thing I’ve had such an intense passion for and am continually trying to improve my craft in any way possible.
Going way back, the first wedding I ever filmed was in 2011 for my friend’s cousin and, oh boy, was it a totally different experience from filming your own short films… But I loved it! I loved finding little candid moments between the Bride and Groom, witnessing such intense emotions, and being able to create a story for them that shares that love for one another. It’s been something very special to me and am always so grateful to be a part of the couple’s wedding day throughout all these years.
Frequently Asked Questions
+ Where are you based out of? Do you travel as well?
We are based in beautiful Austin, Texas and serve the surrounding areas. We also love to travel! Travel fees can vary based on distance.
+ What is your normal turn-around time for delivering final film?
We take the utmost care and attention to detail through the editing phase and keep you updated through the editing process. This generally takes about a month after the wedding date for completion but can take up to 2-3 months at most. Keep in mind we are sifting through HOURS of content to find the best moments in it all! We are constantly trying to minimize the wait though as we know you are excited to see all the moments from the day!
+ I see some films include audio from the day and some do not... Why is that?
While New Beginnings has their own style of shooting, we are always open to listening to what the couple wants in their film. Some love the way how only the music drives the film and others want more audio from the day put in. We love both equally! We want you to be thrilled with your film and keep it living on for years to come!
