ABOUT

Mwendo is the Swahili word for motion. Mwita started the company as an avenue for like-minded creatives to join together in crafting art from real world stories. Our team is inspired by the passion and beauty found in the world around us.

 

WHY US?

Our Signature Style | Utilizing cinematic camera movement, natural light and sound we artfully weave your story into true cinema. Crafting the experience in even greater detail than you remember. A true collaboration between editing and cinematography.

Our Team | We know that we’re not the most important part of your day. Our cinematographers understand how important it is to be able to take in the day without adding additional distractions. We work together behind the scenes to make sure nothing is missed. We know when and how to get the shot without ruining the moment for you and your guest.

The Equipment | We choose high quality small profile cameras that can create a clean image from natural light.

Licensed Music | Music is handpicked and licensed for every film. This allows them to be shared freely online with friends and family. Every couple also receives a thirty second teaser suited for Instagram.

Reliability | Accidents happen. Thanks to our business model, plus years of wedding and corporate experience, we go the extra mile with back up cinematographers, equipment, and digital storage. Our work-flow minimizes the risk of losing irreplaceable moments, when those issues arise.

If you could track how many times I alone have watched this video I would be embarrassed.
Every second of this makes me smile and feel like I am reliving every moment.
Thank you for giving me a piece of my wedding day I can look back on for years to come.
— Katie
