John Appleton Weddings is a boutique video production company providing professional yet affordable videography and editing services for modern wedding films primarily in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. 

I intentionally book a limited amount of weddings per year to ensure quality over quantity.

Being a filmmaker, I approach shooting and editing wedding films with a narrative perspective. I strive to create videos that will invoke the kind of emotion that brings tears to the viewers eyes the way a good film would. 

I also offer unique Vintage/Experimental Weddings Films for couples on a tight budget or who simply want something different.

I am an award winning filmmaker, have been working in video production and post production for over a decade, and I am fully equipped to handle all the your video needs. I attended the filmmaking program at UNCSA in Winston-Salem, NC before started my career as a videographer and editor in NYC freelancing for a multitude of companies including Time Out New York.  In my free time I like to read, watch films, write screenplays, and study Motion Design.
