Meet the Team – Josie Pesce
From the day you watch an NST Pictures wedding video for the first time, to the day you receive your own gorgeous film, the NST team is working hard to make every client’s experience amazing and every video a work of custom art. Get to know the team members who are making your wedding dreams come true!
How did you make your way to working at NST Pictures?
I graduated from Occidental College, where I studied Media Arts & Culture and worked as the manager of the student run TV station. A month later I moved home to New York and found myself at NST!
Why did you choose the wedding industry?
It seemed like a way to put my passion for film to use in a way that had the benefit of impacting others and was new to me!
What do you like about working at NST Pictures?
Weddings are not something I’ve ever really thought about (I’m only 22!) so when I joined the NST team, my eyes were opened to an amazing and intricate industry. A huge part of my job is reviewing the raw footage we send to clients, so I get to see everything! It’s really special to watch the footage and get a sense of who these couples are their love stories.
What is your favorite part of your job as NST’s Production Assistant?
I love working with a small team. We get a lot done but also have a lot of fun together, and as the most recent addition to the team, it’s great to see how each person operates and get hands-on experience with all of NST’s inner workings.
You’ve coordinated hundreds of weddings (literally!) so what wedding videography advice do you have for couples?
Always opt for more coverage! With more footage to choose from you’re much more likely to have the perfect shot.
Outside of NST, what other artistic passions do you pursue?
I love to write—sketches, screenplays, essays, and one day maybe even a novel!
You’re more than just a wedding expert though, so to get to know you better, tell us about your ideal day off of work!
It starts with my convincing my sick best friend to steal his dad’s Ferrari and drive into Chicago… just kidding. I’d probably get up early, go to a café and do some writing, then meet up with friends to go thrift shopping and grab lunch, followed by a good happy hour.
