Wedding Film School is a wedding cinematography studio and education platform based in New York City. We provide the missing link between engaged couples and emerging wedding filmmaking talent. Kraig Adams is the lead cinematographer on all shoots and the educator on the Wedding Film School YouTube channel.

Here are some wedding films that we shoot for our couples:

Jade & Steve: Buttermilk Falls Inn SDE Wedding Film in Milton, NY

Connie & Sean: Gurney’s Inn Wedding Film in Montauk, NY

Kerry & Amit: Wedding Film at Hempstead House in Queens, NY

Beth & Phil: Wedding Film at The Westin Hotel in Greenville, SC

And here are some samples of the education pieces that we make about those weddings:

The next step in the booking process is to draft a package proposal.  We offer one wedding cinema package with the option for customization.  Note that every wedding also involves some sort of behind the scenes filmmaker at no extra cost to you. Weddings outside of New York City require travel expenses to be covered.  Our wedding cinema package starts at $6,000 and includes the following:

8 HOURS OF COVERAGE

The number of hours that are required to cover your wedding depend on the day’s schedule and your cinema package’s options. We can help you decide start and stop times in order to create the best film possible. We typically start coverage just before the bride finishes her makeup.  Customize your hours of coverage.

TEAM OF TWO FILMMAKERS

Kraig Adams is the lead cinematographer for every wedding shoot. An additional cinematographer will improve the quality and quantity of your coverage. Archive films especially benefit due to the ability to shoot multiple angles during the first look, ceremony, toasts and dances.

WEDDING FILM

This 5-minute video is the main film that we edit for most weddings. This length is perfect because it is long enough to include the entire story of the day but short enough to captivate anyone. Couples love sharing this video on social media with their family and friends.

ARCHIVE FILM

This film is a longer cut of your wedding in chronological order and includes all of the multi-camera sequences in their entirety. Meant to be more of a full account and archive of your wedding, this film can be anywhere from 45-90 minutes depending on your day’s events. Family films are chaptered and usually include: the first look, ceremony, toast and first dances.

After the wedding, all footage is immediately backed up to multiple drives. Editing only begins once final balance is paid in full. Our studio edits using Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and handles all work in-house. Custom music scoring is done using Music Bed. Exact delivery date is specified in the contract but typically falls 5-6 weeks after the wedding.  Format of delivery depends on your specific package options. All of our wedding packages are delivered online in HD via Mediazilla.  This high-end platform allows for you to easily view, share and download your videos.  We also upload most wedding films to our Wedding Film School YouTube Channel.  In order for us to know if our studio would be a good fit for you and your wedding, we need to know a little bit about you. Please contact us introducing yourself and why we might be interested in shooting your wedding. Next we will set up a time to talk on the phone, over FaceTime or in person.  Thank you!
