Yeah, that’s me. I bet you’re wondering how I got here. Let me explain.
My name is Paul Quay, and I’m the founder of Watchtower Films. Photo and video was my passion during high school, but everyone said I should go to college and get a real job. After 4 years and way too much debt, I ran away to Kyrgyzstan to follow my dreams. Due to an untimely economic collapse, living in Kyrgyzstan was no longer feasible and I soon found myself teaching in a Korean kindergarten. After two years of absolutely mastering my ABCs and crushing all my kids at our “Count to 100 races”, I decided it was time regroup and follow my true passion.
I spent most of 2018 working as a freelance contractor in the wedding photo and video world, learning through practical hands-on experience. More importantly, I learned exactly the type of company I didn’t want to work for. On numerous occasions as a contractor, I would roll up to a wedding and be forced to ask who the bride was. Awkward introductions like these always left their mark on the final film, because we stayed strangers the entire wedding day.
When I started to branch out on my own, I knew that I wanted things to be fundamentally different. Meeting and getting to know my clients personally before their wedding day is one of my core business values. For Watchtower Films I will only book a client after we’ve had a consultation, because trust is a huge element in creating a beautiful wedding film together.
If you’re in need of wedding photo or video, and agree with what I was blabbering on about in the last few paragraphs, I encourage you to take a look through my portfolio! If you have any questions, or would like more information, there are contact forms on both the Photo and Video pages. I would love to hear from you soon, and help make your wedding day unforgettable experience.
