ABOUT US

 

We are a team of photographers, filmmakers, and wedding professionals. 

We offer high-end photography and cinematography services both independently and as a package. We are based in Virginia with correspondents across the country. Our team has captured hundreds of weddings, and we strive to ensure every wedding day goes smoothly. Thank you for your interest in our work. 

We’d love to help tell your story.

 

OUR BAckGROUND

We launched Altamira Film Co. in 2014 out of an apartment in downtown Richmond. With no backup plan, we dove headfirst into shooting local projects as the business began to grow. Since then we’ve covered international tours for artists like Florida Georgia Line and KSHMR, worked with hospitality brands like Omni Hotels and Park Hyatt New York, and created luxury wedding content for hundreds of couples. Over the years we began to notice a disconnect between our wedding business and our other client work. In 2018 we proudly launched Altamira Weddings – a curated team of wedding cinematographers and photographers, cut from our same cloth.

Our EXPERIENCE

Our team has collectively captured over 1,000 weddings. We are full time photographers and filmmakers with a wide variety of experience. While we specialize in weddings, we’ve also had the opportunity to shoot commercials, music videos, and marketing campaigns with celebrities, athletes and international artists. Our versatility helps us to navigate any situation we may encounter. In addition to our expertise behind the camera, our team is well versed in the wedding day procedures. We’ll help ensure that the day goes smoothly and everyone has fun, all while capturing beautiful photos and films.
