Marie & Mark ~ The Estate at Florentine Gardens ~ Feature Film ~ Wedding Cinematography ~ NJ Wedding Videography

Screen-Shot-2016-01-22-at-8.49.00-AM.png

On a absolutely stunning mid-summer day, Marie & Mark tied the knot at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. This venue, nestled near the NY/NJ border, hosted an intimate wedding with the ceremony and reception at the same location. Mark prepped for his day at a suite at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, a surprise for his bride later that day. A nervous groom fine tuned the details as he would see his bride at their first look just hours later. Marie, ever calm and full of smiles, prepared for her day among her bridesmaids.

The Ceremony at The Estate at Florentine Gardens was beautiful and romantic. The open space sat at just the right angle from the late afternoon sun, enhancing the tender words from Marie & Mark's officiant. The Reception took place in the Estate's Ballroom, which is enveloped in large paned windows which let in the beautiful setting sun. When day becomes night, the sparkle of the string lights outside creates the most magical environment for a wedding reception.

We were treated to a FANTASTIC display by a trio of belly dancers, who entranced the audience in a display of swords and lights. It's a day where a couple so deep in love shared their vows and committed to act other for an eternity, and it was an honor to be there as their wedding cinematographer to capture their day.

Working with Maryanne & Giuseppe was equally beautiful and we captured some amazing footage from a big party with a bunch of high-energy Italian folks. The fireworks display is a signature offering at the Palace, and we were able to incorporate some of the amazing cinematography. Getting married at The Palace at Somerset too?

Same Day Edit! ~ The Park Savoy, Florham Park, NJ.

One of the craziest undertakings for a wedding videographer, is delivering a same day edit for a client. Just as the name implies, we were just crazy enough to shoot and edit this beautiful short film that was ready in time to show at the cake cutting during the reception! In all seriousness, this isn't that crazy... we've developed a system that allows us to deliver a full featured package, and still create one of these for our clients. For us, it was truly exhilarating to see the crowd go wild after the final shot.

Contact us to learn how we can create one of these for you!

What is an INZI Wedding Film?

Bringing in the new year, it's time to start educating again. We want our clients to know what makes us unique so hopefully, they might find us to be the perfect wedding cinematographer for their event! Couples today are extremely lucky, there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to wedding video, I think that we can finally say that our niche in the industry has finally caught up to all of the other vendors that make up the perfect wedding day. So what makes INZI different from the rest?

It's true, I watch tons and tons of wedding videos, films, montages... and on and on. I admire some, skip through some, and like many of them. Doing so today got me thinking. Why do I think we are one of the best out there? Well, it's not because i'm conceited towards our work (I hope), but probably more so because I'm a fan of our style!

What i've noticed is that there are a LOT of flavors out there, you've got traditional documentaries, fast paced vignette's that work as "moving slideshows", musical driven highlights... all sorts of styles. when it comes to an INZI wedding film, I'd like to think that our films would be viewed as "magical".

I use the term "magical", since I am a HUGE cinema fan. From "The Third Man" to "Interstellar", I love all types, all genres, and you'd be hard pressed to name a film I haven't seen. And if I use one word to describe what I think makes a great movie, it's definitely "magical". It's true, we are documentarians on your wedding day, but I use every time tested trick in the book to make your wedding video..... I mean FILM... "Magical".

Even though we are certainly shooting candidly, and you might find us hard to spot on your wedding day, we shoot and edit to make your film feel like a narrative film. Thinking about this got me to focus on the three major keys to a successful INZI Wedding Film:

Imagery:

We shoot all types of images, each used in a certain way in your film. But what I really, really aim for, are a few of those breathtaking shots that show at the right time, raising the heart rate a little. They don't come out of our camera that way either, we spend a ton of time creating a color palette that lifts the film from a documentary feel to a true moviegoing experience. I love rich texture and warmth! I love soft, natural light whenever possible, and I love embracing the relationship of light and shadow. you don't always have to see a character in a movie to feel their emotion. And I love those times when we nail that in our wedding cinematography!

Editing:

This is undoubtedly the biggest factor. You've got no Steven Speilberg without his editor Michael Kahn! It's so hard to describe what makes a good edit to someone with no filmmaking background, but when you watch our films, I hope you can feel the pacing, and can feel the momentum in them. That wave of emotion while watching a movie (and wedding video) is created through great editing. We want your experience to be magical. I really want you to see yourself on that screen and think, WOW, how did they do that!

Sound:

Now, many clients can identify bad sound. And many ask about us how we capture things like vows and speeches. But the truth is, that most pro videographers will be able to handle this part of it. For us, it's daily routine. The other part comes down to the soundtrack and sound design. Does the edit and musical score flow together seamlessly? Do you have lyrics that compete with natural dialog? What about other sounds? Waves crashing, birds chirping, people mingling? Here's one of my hidden talents... My first degree is that of a recording engineer! Music is a big part of my soul, and I can spend days chopping, mixing and laying a beautiful soundtrack in our films. It's the unnoticed and under appreciated apsect of filmmaking!

Well, If you made it this far, congratulations! You now know what we feel makes us unique, and if our style is right for you, then we would love to hear from you!

Screen-Shot-2013-09-08-at-2.16.28-AM.png

I met Jerry & Fayella as a chance of fate, they brokered my first mortgage! These two are the type of people that you learn to like right away, and the only thing that stands out more than their work ethic is the love & passion that they share for one another. They are each other's rock, something that is easy to see in this highlight featurette, which is just a precursor to the full feature coming soon! When they booked with us, it was clear that their film was very important to them and that this production was something that they were thrilled to participate in…. this is one of those pieces that shows what can be when we have couples passionate about cinema!

"An Unplugged Wedding" ~Thoughts from Walter Mitty

AR-140109601.jpg

One frequent topic often discussed behind the scenes between wedding cinematographers and photographers, is the new wave of technology and it's impact on a wedding day. With everyone from your 5 year old niece to your 80 year old grandma now using smartphones and tablets, you now face the challenge of getting everyone to live your special moment with you, instead of experiencing it from behind a 4 inch screen. For me, it's something that I encounter in my personal life as well. It's very hard for my family to understand why I don't record all of the special moments in life, since i'm so great at it.... I mean, I'm a professional, shouldn't I be excited to do this?! If you haven't seen "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty", I encourage you to watch it, it's a great film but be warned: SPOILER ALERT.

Towards the end of the film, Ben Stiller and Sean Penn share a scene that really moved me. Walter Mitty finds Sean Penn at the top of a remote mountain range, where he has been waiting for weeks to catch a glimpse of a rare Snow Leopard, so he can take the very first photograph of it in the wild. When the magical moment comes, Walter Mitty becomes perplexed when Sean Penn's character decides not to look through the viewfinder, and never takes the photograph.

Sean Penn tells Stiller, "it’s more important to enjoy the moment for yourself." and  “beautiful things don’t ask for attention.” This scene really moved me because it was at that moment that I had an explanation for my family. I don't want to watch my daughter grow up from behind my camera, I want to live in those moments with her.

I encourage our couples to remind their guests to leave their phones in their pockets, and to live this moment with them. You've hired your professional team to preserve these memories for all of you (and trust me, we are all better at it).

To say that we had an amazing time working with these two would be an understatement. It felt like we were one of their guests, and there wasn't a shy soul in the building.
