Why did you become a Videographer?

I originally became a Videographer because of my love of photography and story telling. Making videos gave me an outlet that not only combined the things I love but allowed me the opportunity to travel and make a living.

What’s your favorite part about working for Kramer Events? 

The best part about working for Kramer is the people! Kramer has put together a great staff of individuals that really know how to work as a team and are some of the most nurturing, caring people I have ever had the opportunity to work with.

What’s your favorite moment to capture at a wedding and why? 

My favorite part of shooting a wedding is the ceremony when everyone is getting ready and emotions are running high. It gives me a chance to get to know the couple at their most vulnerable and establishes a trusting relationship. For me the bond I develop with the couple is the single most important and rewarding part of my job. It allows me to anticipate the important moments of the day as well as helps me to capture the the true personality of even the most camera shy individuals. I don’t just film the events, I become part of their story and leave them with a lasting memory that is preserved for generations.

What should every couple know before meeting with their videographer?

I think before meeting with your videographer its important to be honest with your self and be prepared to show your true personality. We want to get to know the real you, because on your wedding day there will be no time for pleasantries and we want you to be as comfortable with us as possible. Most of all, don’t worry about the details. We don’t expect you to have all the answers,  just have the desire for a great wedding video and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your wedding is all about you and we will be happy to accommodate almost any request.

What general advice would you give a couple preparing for their wedding?
Relax! Your wedding is supposed to be fun. Just take everything one step at a time and your wedding will come together exactly the way its supposed to. With Kramer events you are in good hands and our team will guide you threw the process every step of the way.
