Heirloom Films for Nostalgic Hearts
Melayna + Grant,
I really enjoyed our recent conversation and hearing about your wedding vision! Everything from the coastal backhdrop with an emotional feel, to wanting those small, meaningful moments documented - this sounds like our kind of celebration. And we want to help you relax and take it all in by fully trusting that your video team is capturing all those candid and in-between moments of you two and the people you love.
It isn't lost on us that you're considering inviting us into one of the most sacred days of your life. Our prayer is that your wedding film will help you keep those memories close, pass them down to your children, and bless your marriage all over again for many years, in the good times and the hard. Congratulations again on this monumental, magical moment in your life story. God bless you in your journey to come!
We're Josh and Jess.
It isn't surprising we fell in love through writing while we were living across the world from each other (Nashville to Nepal), because that's who we are — travelers and storytellers. Though thousands of miles away, our hearts did not feel far apart. Shortly after marrying in 2013, we formed A Little Long Distance and never looked back. We’ve been lucky enough to travel the world and document weddings and elopements. Our passion seems to grow by the day, and we believe in what we do more than ever.
We are currently located in Nashville, TN, but would be honored to travel to you.
It's just a little long distance, after all.

When you work with us, you can expect . . .
Handcrafted, non-formulaic films.
Our hearts and souls are poured into our 8-10 minute Heirloom Films. No two films look the same, because no two couples are. We start with a blank slate for every film and always strive to create something one-of-a-kind and tailored to your style. We love incorporating archival footage and aspects of your larger story outside of the wedding day.
Our Story Exploration process includes questionnaires and video calls to ensure we know our couples on a deeper, more personal level. We make it a point to know details ahead of time like when you fell in love, what tunes you're currently jamming, and whose empty chair at your wedding will bring a tear to your eye.
A relational experience.
By the time your wedding rolls around, we hope to be in more of the "guest" category than "vendor." This is critical to our philosophy because we want you to be fully alive and present and comfortable - not nervous about cameras or strangers around you. You'll know we're rooting for and praying for you, and our clients beome dear to us for life.
Every moment will last
For those looking to preserve and relive as many moments as possible through video, this is the Collection for you. All the laughs, tears, jokes, and timeless moments you want to bottle up and drink in again and again.
Let's tell your story
Collection Two focuses on the creative Heirloom Film as well as two of the main events of the day:
the real-time wedding ceremony and speeches from loved ones at the reception.
A wedding day heirloom
The focus here is solely on creating a timeless Heirloom Film of your wedding day. This is our signature product that you've probably seen by now since you're here! Pairs well with a Narrative Shoot and/or Archival Footage, as listed below.
$1500 | REHEARSAL DINNER FILM
Do you want to remember the feeling of this intimate night before the big celebration? This is an edited video to remember the night with your closest people. Includes any speeches given.
Up to 3 hours of coverage.
$950 | SOCIAL MEDIA TEASER
Delivered within 7 days of your wedding. Get back to those feelings right away and share glimpses of your wedding without the wait.
$750 | NARRATIVE SHOOT
Like an engagement shoot, but for video. If we are traveling to your wedding, we typically do this the day before. Your story is greater than just the wedding day, and this shoot conveys that as it shows you two together outside of the wedding.
$750 | ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE
Incorporation of childhood home movies and/or content from your relationship (iPhone photos and videos, etc.)
$800 | SUPER 8 FILM
Film shot on a true 1970s Super 8mm, then developed and incorporated tastefully into your Heirloom Film. For those with a taste for classy nostlagia.
We hand-picked these films for you to check out. Based on our conversation, we thought you would resonate strongly with these:
SARAH + COLSON
JULIA + MIKE
KYLE + JOY
Get back to that feeling.
