How do Wedding Invitations Work?
Winning or purchasing a wedding invitation teaser means our production crew will follow you to some of your favorite places and spend up to 5 hours dedicated to capturing your relationship and personality in it’s entirety. Second, we piece it all together back in the studio and re-present your personalized footage in a seamless taylor-fit love-montage set to a song of your choice. These prized teaser trailers incorporate 6 hours production time, and 5 hours of editing and typically have a studio value of $600.00
Our Favorite Sample: Joe + Kaylee Schaafsma
Love Stories are much like wedding invitations in content but with an added interview as the driving force.
Often, we tell people to draw from this lovestory for inspiration:
Love Story – Schaafsma’s [Part 3] from Envisioned Studios on Vimeo.
Love Stories are our favorite part of making any wedding come alive. As we have server restrictions, we’ve chosen to show you our favorite part of a very fun and exciting love story. The Love Story of Joe Schaafsma and kaylee Gifford

in 2011, we’re really excited to offer bigger and better wedding preservation options. Wedding preservation used to be just about getting a simple DVD that you could keep in a box in the attic for one day when you might want to watch it. Now-a-days, we can help you keep your wedding at the for-front of our every-day life. Share a few personalized statements with your spouse on a visual loop next to the bathroom mirror on a digital frame, watch your processional with a friend on your phone, strut your stuff on facebook with your very own Director’s Cut Wedding Montage in HD. The options don’t stop there. We’ve just recently ran the numbers and come up with custom compression schemes for getting your entire wedding on your Apple TV, iPads, iPhone4, and the entire suite of apple devices. With a few shakes, we can have our wedding pre-configured for your mobile devices, ready to share on your webpage, social media sites, google TV sets, youtube channel, and more. The sky is the limit! As we said, your wedding should be everywhere you are.
What options do the other guys offer?
Moth other options are going to be nothing more than a DVD of your wedding day. It’s fairly regular to find venders who will allow you to have a custom song for your DVD Menu, a custom DVD Case, Full Ceremony Coverage, and a couple hours of the Reception. If you’re lucky, they might allow you to discuss with them how things are edited on the computer and make some changes. Often, as DVD is as far as most of them can go, they ask you how many copies you want and they start looking at nailing you down at a rate for the DVD duplication. Some will even attempt to spread themselves out over both video and photos and offer you a package that requires them to sling both the video camera, still cameras, cards, tapes, flash strobes, jibs, tracks, tripods, audio gear, and more.
What’s wrong with having a friend or family member video tape your wedding?
Far be it from us to tell you how to capture and relive your wedding, but we can strongly recommend with confidence that people don’t do this.
Employing our services will save you from encountering the following:
Oh no, my photographer is charging me rediculous amounts of money for re-prints but I really really wish I had some way to share my wedding experience online, on postcards, or atleast something.
Oh no, my cousin said he was going to videotape the wedding with our camera but we don't even get to watch it on the tape because he ran out of battery in the middle of the officient's address.
Oh no, we didn't get the right type of tapes for the Camera.
Oh no, I thought it was HD and our kids would be able to share our wedding moments.
Oh no, his mother was gonna videotape but when the flower girl walked down the aisle, she got frustrated with the camera and chose to have a good time. we'll never EVER relive that day together or with our kids.
Oh no, I just don't think I can go on. Our marriage is a challenge and I really wish we could sit down and re-live those fun times. We really should have invested in our romance!

I was delighted to find that one of our seven finalists at the Anchorage International Film Festival in the “Shorts” category was my favorite ~ Nuit Blanche. I saw the movie this afternoon at the festival and have been watching it over and over since. I’m so delighted to see that it might win the competition. So … you all know why I’ll be so delighted if I announce this as the winner.
A quick after note: this video did win the competition
I had the opportunity to shoot the Jessica Young / David Woelfel wedding with a camera Op from Denver this past week. It was great getting to see the personality of the couple and their community up close and personal. He (David) works for the Ted Stevens International Airport and She (Jessica) works as a Firewoman. During the early parts of the day, we followed them from location to location as they prepared for the biggest day of their lives. With the nature of wedding cine-journalism, there was plenty to capture (My B-Angle Camera Operator, April Frame, reports having captured 5hrs of RAW HD Content at the end of the day.) but we also had plenty of chances to stop and set up some fun shots with both the couple and their respective bridal and groomsmen parties. I recall some of the funnest shots including the boys sitting at the couples house killing time with the Nintendo Wii, and the girls out on the lawn with their flowers.
David and his Groomsmen all had swords with them through the ceremony. Part of being a Wedding Cinematographer is being flexible and learning about the couple & their specific interests. At one point, we had 2 cameras rolling in 60p Over-cranked Slow-Motion while all 7 of them ran through a choreographed sword fight in the front lawn at David’s Parents Bed and Breakfast (Alpine Rose Inn).
As always, I’m not the only creative mind out on the shoot. Though I have been doing these wedding productions for years, I’m confident that those I bring with me bring as good if not better solutions than I do. This wedding was no exception. I had April Frame of A-Frame Productions with me and she did a great job coming up with really fun ideas for formal slow motion shots and general establishing shots along with great coverage of the Ceremony and the Reception.
Some of my favorite attributes to their wedding day included the Cake, Fire Engines, Fireman’s Axe, plenty of sporty Sun-Glasses, knives, and a whole lot more. An example of their creativity: the cake was half edible and half burning-building with flames, flashing lights, miniature fire engine, and heroic firemen.
