Art & Life with Siarra Price and Ben Brinker

Today we’d like to introduce you to Siarra Price and Ben Brinker.

Siarra and Ben, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
We are what makes S. Price Media, which is a videography and photography business in the southern Illinois and St. Louis area, but we love traveling all over the bi-state area for weddings!

Ben and I both grew up with super creative minds and passions. My degree in college was Mass Communications with a focus on video production. I also love dancing and singing, and even once learned how to play the guitar! Ben has a talent in art and rehabbing furniture!

After purchasing my first camera to use for school projects, I fell in love with the entire video production process. From the filming to the editing (which is my ultimate favorite part – it’s where the magic happens!) I knew I had found something that was my passion. When a family friend asked me to film their wedding, I was hesitant to agree. Ben was the one who pushed me and convinced me that this was probably something I would love doing. He was absolutely right! And thankfully he was there with me every step of the way.

Ben started out assisting me at weddings, but we have grown so much together and we have truly become partners in this process! We officially opened our business together, S. Price Media, and we haven’t looked back since. We are only part-time, but we love meeting all our new clients and building friendships from that!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
We are videographers and photographers. Mostly telling people’s love story on the day of their wedding. We create highlight films that tell the most special parts of their wedding day, edited together to a song that the couple selects. We have recently expanded our offerings to wedding photography, too! Both photos and videos are so precious when it comes to weddings.

We want people to feel the emotions! Being able to preserve that moment in time – just like pressing pause. We want them to be able to re-live that day over and over again for the rest of their blessed lives together! Wedding photos and videos are all that’s left after the wedding day. Even the actual memories eventually fade, truly only leaving the photos and videos as the ultimate keepsakes! It’s so important! And hopefully, our couples now will be able to look back on their videos 50 years from now and they will be able to feel the excitement, joy, nerves, and absolutely overwhelming love that they experienced on their wedding days!

What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
We are thankful to have each other in this business. Since we are partners, we are rarely working solo unless it’s a special circumstance! However, we find the best way we have been able to connect to other photographers/videographers/artists in our area is by joining online groups and forums, and truly interacting with them! We also introduce ourselves to the other vendors at the weddings we work at and make connections there!

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
People can support our work, first and foremost, by sharing it on social media! Social media dominates the marketing world, and we are a small business who is leaving an even smaller footprint. The social media platforms make it more and more difficult for small businesses to break through the clutter and we can’t always pay for sponsored posts the way big businesses can. By following our pages, sharing our photos and videos, and even leaving a simple interaction is the best way to support us!

Social is the “new” word of mouth! And word of mouth gives us the BEST clients!

We share all of our work online – on both our website and social media!
