Complete Weddings + Events Videographer

Alex Oakes

St. Louis Videographers

Why did you decide to become a videographer?

I’ve loved video since I was ten years old and my parents bought me my first camcorder. I used to film my brothers having wrestling matches. After that I was hooked!

What is your favorite memory from an event you’ve worked?

My favorite memory is a time I got to shoot a choreographed father-daughter dance. It was so emotional, especially when they started doing the robot!

What is your favorite thing about being a videographer?

My favorite thing about being a wedding videographer is getting the opportunity to be creative. It gives me a lot of joy to have a job where creativity is a necessary skill.

What makes your work stand out?

My works stands out because of its style. That is the best part about working with Complete: the videographers don’t feel the need to emulate the same style – everyone brings their own creative vision to the team, and it’s that vision that gives our clients such amazing wedding videos.

What is your favorite part of an event?

My favorite part of an event is always the first dance. I’m constantly moving to try and capture multiple angles and views. My goal is to do everything I can to try to capture just how much the couple loves each other. That love is always present during the first dance.

What’s something about you most people don’t know?

I love thinking about mash-up tattoos to get. My favorite that I have is ET dressed as Indiana Jones.

""I loved Complete Weddings. Every time I called or had a question they were available to answer. They were very pleasant to speak with. Everybody in the main office were very thorough in their answers to me. I loved the planning guides online. These made it a lot easier when talking to the DJ, Videographer, and Photographer. They already knew many details of my wedding because of the online planning so it made these conversations very smooth. Henry, our photographer, and Alex, our videographer were great. They showed up on time to where the girls were getting their hair and make up done. They got many good shots and stayed until I was finally getting into my dress. They picked a great spot for our first look. It was very hot, 97 degrees and they made sure we stayed cool and hydrated. They let us take many breaks inside because of the heat and were very accommodating. Any pictures of certain groups I asked for or wanted they did in a flash. They were great at the reception and stayed well into the evening for all the main events." - Darcy C."
