Kristen was a dream bride to work with. From the very beginning of the booking process, she was excited to be working with us and to ulitmately have a beautiful CinemaCake film like her brother and sister-and-law had for their wedding. She really enjoyed every step of the planning process and paid attention to the little details that helped make the wedding day unique. For example, Kristen and Jim both love the Philadelphia Flyers, so they invited the iconic announcer, Lou Nolan, to introduce their bridal party into the room! We discussed all of these details with Kristen in our pre-shoot phone call, about two weeks before the wedding, and made sure that each shooter was on the look out to capture these special moments. The final product, was a beautiful film, that not only captures the love that Kristen and Jim have for one another, but also highlights all of the little ways they made their wedding day a truly personal event!
We loved Kristen and Jim's CinemaCake film, so were were absolutely thrilled to read Kristen's thoughts in her WeddingWire post:
"Using CinemaCake to film our wedding was an easy choice.
My brother and sister-in-law used CinemaCake for their wedding video in 2010 and I was beyond impressed. When I got engaged they were top of my list for videographer and was so ecstatic that they were able to do our wedding.
Initial contact was seamless, contract and deposit all done electronically through their website, super easy. Our production manager, Taylor, was a pleasure to work with. We had a preliminary phone interview to go over details about the wedding, voiceovers, and information about my fiancé and me. This preliminary part turned out to be so important because the things we discussed were exactly what was captured in the video.
Every wedding has its own identity and our video displays it perfectly. It really tells the story of our wedding without showing the entire day. The camera crew blended in perfectly to our wedding. They were great at coaching my husband and I through our voiceovers.
We opted for additional posterity chapters of the ceremony and first dance as well as all the raw unedited footage (highly recommend). Seeing the raw footage gave me an even bigger appreciation for how good CinemaCake really is at filmmaking. To film edit an entire wedding and tell the story so beautifully is really a challenge and CinemaCake delivered perfection.
The final product is top quality and very professional. No question a videographer is an added expense, but if you're considering it you should go with the best there is. Being able to relive the biggest day of our lives was absolutely worth the price. Thank you CinemaCake, we couldn't be happier with how our video turned out!"
