If you are in the process of choosing a videographer, you'll want to familiarize yourself with the different styles of wedding videos that are out there: Cinematic & Documentary.
Cinematic videography/editing is defined as a "filmy" look. This style aims to increase the emotional impact through use of slow motion and transition effects, saturated colors, creative camera angles and dramatic music. It has that "wow" factor to tell your story in a unique way. A cinematic filmed wedding can cost you a lot more and tends to be the most obtrusive of techniques due to the multiple cameras and videographers, lights, and equipment.
Documentary videography/editing focuses on simply capturing the day, as they happen, in the order they happen. This type of editing can have very little cut out of the final DVD, little to no dramatic camera angles, music added or special effects used.
At NH Images, our style is a combination of cinematic and documentary. We focus on telling the story of your wedding day in a way that is dramatic, artistic and fun to watch without sacrificing any of the important moments of your day. Your final DVD will have your ceremony, toasts, and any other moment of significance in their entirety but intertwined with those dramatic transitions and special effects. We also provide our Cinematic "Looking Back" recaps and Custom Highlight Videos in our packages so that you have the option of just watching a "mini-movie" of your day, or everything as it unfolds.
Our main goal, aside from capturing the feeling and emotion of the day, is to make your final DVD watchable by anyone, without giving them the urge to press the fast-forward button. =)
