Cinematography was something I had thought about but we certainly didn’t have the budget for it. About 7 months before my wedding I started to research it, considering every other vendor had already had been selected and I had some …
Monica & Brett Brock – May 14th, 2011
Location: Grant-Humpreys Mansion - Denver, Colorado Wedding
I knew from the beginning of planning our wedding that we wanted video of our day, but was not sure it was a necessity. And then the wonderful Rachel, owner of Intricate Icings, told us about Chris Orwat at Pure Cinematography. She highly recommended his Cinematography Services. Once we looked at his website, and viewed several of his highlight videos on his theater page, we were sold. We knew then we HAD to have video of our day! So we crossed our fingers and hoped his prices would be reasonable. And they were! We felt fortunate to have found him with only 2 short months to go before the wedding.
Chris met with us at his location, StudioWed. He was very interested in what we were looking for, and how he could personalize our video for us. He even came to our rehearsal and shot footage (which he later included for us), which we were not even expecting.
The day of our wedding, unfortunately for us, was drizzling rain. We knew that we had to move our planned outdoor wedding inside. But to our complete astonishment, Chris had brought with him over 20 white umbrellas (just in case), and we were able to have our ceremony outside, with our guests covered from the rain. Now that is what I call above and beyond!!
But the real review is for his cinematography. We were truly blown away by our finished Blu Ray DVD. The quality was excellent, the high definition made for very clean, crisp images. Chris is truly talented! He had some great ideas for shots, and was very professional throughout working him. With his eye for detail, his creativity, and modern artistic approach, he captured our day better than we could have ever imagined. Through video, he told a story of our wedding- starting with getting ready, and ending with us pulling away at the end of the night. Chris caught the emotions, the glances…everything so that we can literally relive our day whenever we want. Being able to hear our ceremony back, along with the speeches, and the well wishes of our guest, are all memories that we are so happy to have captured on DVD. It was the best wedding investment that we made!
