WEDDING CINEMATOGRAPHY // NEW ENGLAND
"My husband and I are on cloud 9 with how our wedding video came out! Sean was so friendly and always got back to us immediately. Anyone planning a wedding knows how appreciated that is!!! We barely knew he was there when he was filming. The day goes by so quick… I’m so glad we have a video and highlight film to watch over and over and see the parts we missed! You can’t be everywhere! :) If you’re debating on hiring a videographer- I can’t recommend Sean enough. You won’t regret it! The memories are forever."
- Kate S
"The video that we just received from Sean far exceeded expectations! It was the perfect mix of edited and candid, so that it felt so natural and like it truly encapsulated the day. It was so beautiful and we already treasure it! We were also so happy at how quick the turnaround time was, which is especially incredible considering how well-edited it was! Working with Sean was so easy as well - he knows how to blend into the room and works very well with photographers so that the whole day is captured! Could not recommend him more!"
- Sara S
"There are not enough words to describe how much we loved working with Sean. He is authentic, genuine, easy going, fun to be around, and honestly the coolest videographers in New England. We worked together closely for over 1.5 years leading up to our wedding to discuss the style of video I was hoping to receive, music ideas, and what our most important parts of the day were so he could capture those. With so much ease, comfort, and confidence Sean just did his thing the day of our wedding, half the time we forgot he was even there (in the best way!). Just 3 weeks after our wedding, we received the most magical highlight video and a 1.5 hour video that captured all the big moments, the ceremony, the speeches, and dances. Sean - from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything, for capturing our love so perfectly, for being so easy to work with, and for being so talented."

YOUR FAMILY CHEERS AND APPLAUDS WHILE YOU KISS
You thought the day would never come, but before you can catch your breath, you and your future spouse are standing together in front of the people you love. In the middle of saying your vows, your voice catches as you see your mother’s tears, and you struggle to hold back your own. At the reception, your father offers a toast complete with that awful joke, but somehow it’s perfect. When the groomsmen and bridesmaids surprise you with that incredible group dance to “Build Me Up, Buttercup,” you laugh until your stomach hurts. Now it’s over -- today, the most important day of your life, has passed in a blur with no chance to push the “pause” button. Fortunately, you had the foresight to include professional cinematography of your once-in-a-lifetime event as part of your wedding planning. Wedding photographs couldn’t fully capture great grandmother dancing with her great, great, grandnephew or all those amazing dance moves. Thinking of what you might have gotten if you had taken Uncle Arnold up on his offer to record the wedding on his “smart” phone, you shudder. Now, your children will be able to watch this beautifully produced video over and over as you tell them the story, yet again, of how mommy met daddy. First, though, you can’t wait to press “play” and watch it with your spouse, so you can relive the day, this time not missing a single detail.

WHAT IS CINEMATOGRAPHY?
SHOOTING WITH STYLE
Cinematography is much more than turning the camera on and pressing “record.”
It requires advanced technical knowledge of lens selection, creative camera movements, depth of field, focus, audio recording, and visual storytelling. When all these elements are expertly combined, amazing visuals come to life.
Editing is the process of using technology to fully realize the creative vision. Raw footage is just the beginning; a good editor first takes the shots and then brings them to the next level. To avoid disappointment with your final product, it is important you engage a videographer who understands all the nuances of expert editing. We do. Color grading, color correcting, image enhancement, and super slow motion are only the tip of the iceberg. We understand when editing is done well, it is your story that shines.
