WEDDINGS, ENGAGEMENTS, PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS
I love telling stories. Weddings, engagements, business promotions- everyone has a story. My goal is to make sure every video I create is powerful and has its viewers FEEL something. I love to work with people from all walks of life and am inclusive of every type of love story. Take a look at my recent work, and reach out if you have your own ideas or are ready to book!
I come from a long line of wedding photographers. I have been studying film editing for nearly twenty years and have recently found my home in videography. My passion is story telling. Whether it's a promotional video, a love story, or a wedding... I pride myself on making everyone who watches it FEEL something. I like to spend time with my clients to get a feel for what they want to convey and work passionately to make that happen.
This is my grandfather, Bill Rettberg Sr. He retired after a 65 year career as a professional wedding photographer. I started my career in weddings shortly after he passed away and am so proud to carry the torch for my family ❤️
I am a documentary style videographer. This means I find the moments to capture without manufacturing them. I pride myself on being able to re-tell the story of your day by capturing the true emotions, so that when you watch it back, you remember all of the feelings just as much as the nuts and bolts of your day!
HOW IT WORKS
We will meet and go over exactly what you're looking for and brainstorm how we will tell your story. I prefer phone or video chats to make sure we can truly connect and be sure we're a good fit!
When you're ready to book, I'll send over a contract and payment options. I do 50% down to book, the other 50% due after you receive and approve your video.
I will film your project on location for no travel fee within 2 hours of New Market, Maryland. I offer 1 or 2 videographers, drone footage and audio capture.
EDITING AND FINALIZING PROJECT
I will put it all together and send a dropbox link over to you to check out. I then give you an editing period of 1 week to go over the work and request any changes. After a week, your project is finalized and yours to keep! I will send you a flash drive with all of your raw footage and your finalized video in the mail.
We are so thankful we found Livvy to capture our big day -it was the best decision we made!! She exceeded all of our wedding video dreams!
Livvy is the absolute sweetest human and made our wedding experience unforgettable from our first conversation (sharing her knowledge, talent and incredible ability to bring a story to life) to well after receiving our wedding video (checking up on us to see how our honeymoon was). Livvy truly became like family during the process, being very responsive and capturing many events leading up to the wedding day (saying yes to the dress, bridal shower, etc). She dedicated her time to really get to know us as a couple and learn our wants, our needs and what was most important to us to be captured. She puts her heart into her work and clients and it surely shows! She was that someone I could trust to capture all the moments I would never have the opportunity to see, being the bride.
We are SOO in love with our final video and will cherish it for forever. Livvy was willing to make any edit we wanted and even provided us with all the raw footage from our special day. She was generous to create small videos for social media and truly made our love story come to life.
If you’re on the fence about hiring a videographer for your big day.. DO IT! Livvy captured moments in time that we will never get back (our grandparents, our little ring bearers, etc) and our video is something we can watch anytime we want to relive our magical day... you’ll be so grateful you did!
Hiring Olivia was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day!
Where do I even begin other than with saying you should absolutely hire Livvy for your big day and you will NOT be disappointed!!
Hiring Livvy was truly one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding. She is kind, professional, easy to work with, and so discrete with getting her shots that I never felt self conscious about being on camera on my wedding day.
We just received our highlight film and it is truly perfection - from the gorgeous detail shots to the music and the overall quality of the video, we were absolutely amazed at the final product. She also let me make edits and changes and worked with me to ensure that the final version was exactly what we wanted. And the best part is that she is giving us ALL of our raw footage so that we can relive our big day for all the years to come - what a gift that is! We are so thankful!
There was a period of time where we didn’t think we needed videography, but BOY were we wrong! If you are on the fence about whether or not you should invest in a videographer for your wedding, I highly recommend that you do and that you choose Olivia for your special day!
"We cannot say enough about Livvy. Not only is she a PHENOMENAL artist, but she is so down to earth and easy to talk to. She is organized, thorough, and passionate about her work. She effortlessly captures the love between the couple and leaves any viewer with tears and a feeling like they are apart of the story. Her first wedding video was our special day, and we can't thank her enough for all the hard work she put Into our day. The wedding fell during the pandemic and could have been a disaster but she helped us to have such a memorable day and move things along seamlessly. A wedding day flys by and during a pandemic it is gone faster than you could ever anticipate. Thanks to her video we get to relive all the special moments over and over again. She even helped us pull off our “Plot Twist” announcement and capture our parents reaction when we told them they would be grandparents. If you are not sure if you need a video for your wedding day, all we can say is if you do not get it you will regret it. This is such a special day that we can revisit any time we want. One of the best choices we made for our wedding was booking Livvy. We can’t wait to see what she will capture at our big revow ceremony and reception next year. "

Livvy’s talent speaks for itself through her videos. She is amazing! I highly recommend hiring her to capture your business or family. She recently put a collaboration video together for my business and friend’s business and exceeded our already high expectations! She was patient and open to our ideas. Livvy was quick to implement any changes needed and we couldn’t be happier with the end result!
I cannot say enough about Livvy Hill! My friend and I hired her for a joint video collaboration and with her ideas and her editing talents she was able to capture what we couldn't put into words! She was so accommodating with all of our 'isms and when we were awkward and camera shy during interviews, she knew exactly how to regroup and make our personalities come out the way we hoped! She was such a pleasure to work with and I will definitely hire her again in the future!
