Jewish Wedding Videography

The Bride & Groom's Page

Purpose
To create a living memory of your happiest day so that you can relive it and share it with your existing family plus your future children and grandchildren. To capture those moments, sounds and movements that you missed. To help you remember your vows and the community to which you have committed yourself.

Style
Do you like old Hollywood movies that were made during the big studio days when acting performances were most important? Do you appreciate editing that is subtle and consistent? I shoot with up to 4 cameras at once so as to be unobtrusive yet well covered. My gear is small and portable so I can move quickly and fit it anywhere.

Skill
Do you respect a film school education from LMU and AFI? Do you understand that a photographer is as different from a videographer as a bride is different from a groom - then I'm the videographer for you.

Substance
Your video is delivered to you electronically in High Definition so it will look incredible. You can download it to any of your devices. You can also purchase Blu-Ray or DVD copies at any time.

Here is a 7 minute summary of my work in this category.

Benching, Anticipation and Romantic Moments are interchangeable.

Every Wedding Video is a 3-Act Story

Act 1

Anticipation
Beginning about an hour before the guests officially arrive, I gather scenes of tables being set up, bridal party hanging around, decorations being placed, flowers being pinned on etc.. This is set to music.

Kabbalat Panim
This is that festive time when bride and groom are receiving congratulations and words of wisdom from their family and friends - in the respective rooms. Because the Tish tends to be a more rambunctious crowd, it is covered with a handheld camera. The Kallah is quietly seated on her throne so a stationary camera over her shoulder captures the activity in her room. I do travel back and forth quite a bit during this time to get shots of everything I can. 


 

Act 2

Full Chupah Ceremony
I use one manned camera and two or three strategically placed remote cameras for the most complete yet unobtrusive coverage possible. If yours is a stationary Chupah then I will be able to attach cameras to the posts for some really great angles. The Chosen wears wireless lapel mic and I'll place another recorder on the main microphone so we can clearly hear all the words.

Reception Highlights & Review
I’ll capture shots of you and your families, guests mingling & dancing, children playing, waiters serving, people toasting & laughing….No detail is overlooked! And of course, I use two cameras for all that dancing! You’ll be able to enjoy the party all over again and see the things you missed. The Review is set to music.

 

Act 3

Romantic Moments
This montage is all about the love between you. While you pose for your world-class photographer, I follow nearby and capture stylized shots as you hug, hold and smile. Mere photos cannot capture a glance, a giggle or the length of his gaze they way video can! This is set to music.

Benching

This is the final ceremony of the night and I dutifully record every last blessing, prayer and sip. Mozel Tov!

Wedding Day Review

This is the video that gets all the glamour and special treatment. The best footage from throughout the wedding day is recut into this final video segment. Add a few photos from your honeymoon if you wish! This is set to your favorite romantic song.

Sweet Dream

This is an abbreviated version of your whole wedding celebration underscored with instrumental music and natural sounds. This runs about 15 minutes in length.
