- Alex Gould
Hello there! Thanks for stopping by. We are husband and wife team Alex and James and we are Good Earth Films. We hope you enjoy watching our films as much as we enjoy crafting them.
Name(s): Alex and James Gould
Where you call home: Reidsville, NC (it’s a little town close to Greensboro)
Things you’d write home to your Momma about: We feel blessed that we are able to work together. Starting Monday mornings with a warm cup of coffee, editing side-by-side, is something we never want to take for granted. We receive joy from the precious moments of ordinary life. We believe we create wedding films that encourage couples and their families to reflect on the joy in their own uniquely precious moments. And we hope that each film inspires folks to remember that this earth is a good place to be!
Location/Coverage: North Carolina and Virginia but we love traveling so we’ll come to you!
Favorite part of a wedding day? This may sound so silly but James and I actually tear up the most at receptions! Something amazing happens when Mema and Uncle Joe are out on the dance floor with the bride and groom. In those spontaneous moments when everyone is filled with genuine joy and laughing uncontrollably, we get a deep sense of how perfect life can be.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Sometimes folks forget that a wedding is a milestone for the entire family. A wedding is inspired by the love between a bride and a groom, but it grows into a celebration that encompasses far more than that. It is the one time in our culture when everyone we love comes together to celebrate life! So the best advice I can give a bride and groom is do whatever it takes for you to be present on your wedding day. Take deep breaths and allow yourself to enjoy the moment. Don’t let anything steal your joy. However the day plays out, it will be uniquely wonderful because unlike any other wedding in the history of weddings it will be the best one you’ll ever attend -— because it will be yours!
Favorite Southern city? We love visiting Williamsburg, VA. Café dining on the cobblestone streets of colonial downtown makes us smile every time.
Early bird or night owl? Night owls – hoot, hoot!
