About Us

 

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

We created our parent company Altamira Film Co. six years ago. At that time we were just a few friends with a passion for cameras, and we launched Altamira in January 2014 out of an apartment downtown Richmond. With bills to pay and no backup plan, we dove in headfirst shooting music videos for local artists, headshots for various businesses, and weddings for family friends. Since then we’ve had the opportunity to work with some awesome clients. 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 photos & films for hundreds of couples. Over the years we began to notice a disconnect between our wedding business and our other client work. After many brainstorm sessions, we decided we needed a sister company – a curated team of wedding cinematographers and photographers, cut from our same cloth. In 2017 we proudly launched Altamira WeddingsThank you for your interest in our work – we’d love to help tell your story.
