We have seen companies go out of their way looking of quality videographers in their local area. Unfortunately, the decent ones are not interested in shooting a wedding. So this leaves to most videographers who may no even be up to date with the technology or refuses to invest into technology for a wedding event.
Couples should be aware of those situations and we do advise to stay away! It’s your wedding day! Why spend a fortune doing a beautiful wedding only to have it captured with such low quality content?
These are the concerns we try to make aware for any couple looking for videography or cinematography. Live Picture studios strive to have up to date technology and ensure that the visuals will be high quality and nothing less.
We’re from NJ and you won’t find any other quality company that can tell your story better.
It seems that booking season is slowing down. We can’t wait to start working with couples that have booked us from New Jersey ( NJ ) and New York ( NY ). It’s going to be a busy year for Live Picture Studios, it’s going to be a fun one.
We are still offering discount rates for Same Day Edits. If you book us before March 30th, we will, at your reception, edit the recap / highlights of your wedding day and have it played in front of your hundreds of guest to appreciate what you have gone through in the day.
We hope to hear from you soon!
Live Picture Studios was working with SoundSurge Entertainment at the Bridal show in Secaucus, NJ. It was a pretty big show and there were a lot of Brides who attended. However, there were a lot of confusion with regards Videography and Cinematography. We would say about 90% did not know the difference. However, when looking at our Cinematic Wedding Highlights, they clearly can see the difference in what it’s about. It’s just they don’t know what it entails.
So this is how we explained to our potential clients of what Cinematography or a Cinematic wedding is versus a Traditional Wedding. Cinematic wedding is about telling stories in a very cinematic filmic form. It’s a different way of shooting and we do a lot of pre-production work before going into the wedding day as oppose to Videography where it’s like a reality show. Videographers brings a camera and follows you around like a reality series. There’s not much thinking involve besides trying to stay steady. At in the edit, it’s just “cross fades” of your day. Sounds boring and that’s not what Live Picture Studios is about. We are filmmakers looking to make films for our clients. We strive to make your wedding day an unbelievable and unforgettable story that can last forever. That’s a Cinematic Wedding!
This was a film where New Jersey collaborated with New York for a beautiful modern / traditional chinese love story. Setting took place at the Castle Oheka in Long Island where we had the opportunity to work with fantastic photographers. Having great photographers to capture your day makes our job easier when building a story. The photographers are like your directors for your wedding day.
When Live Picture Studios arrived at the entrance of the Castle Oheka, we knew exactly the story we were going to create. We stayed outside for an hour capturing the beautiful scenes. They have this gate that opens up and behind the gate is this amazing road to drive through. The scenes was what made this cinematic wedding unique. When we got inside the castle, another wow of amazement. Then we met the couple who were just fun and a talkative bunch. It made the story so much worth telling!
We have to admit, it was a very long day. A modern Chinese wedding isn’t your typical american wedding apparently. We don’t remember if there was any break time. We went from scene to scene to scene capturing everything that we can think of. It was exhausting, but it was exciting as well to know that the footage we are capturing are beautiful.
People ask us how we shot the Penny and TJ wedding especially the introduction “Red Carpet” entrance. First off, this was done 2 weeks prior to their wedding. We spent about 1.5 hours shooting it, but 16 hours of planning the shoot. We treated this as any film we would produce. We started with a concept/idea and then moved on with getting permission to use the locations. After that, we storyboarded the whole introduction from beginning to end.
What do we mean by storyboard? We animate the characters and make sure we complete a blueprint of our shots and how the story was going to pace. Once that is completed, our director would have a base to be creative on the day of the shoot.
