Smartphones may be everywhere these days and capturing a moment through video (and posting it on social media) might be commonplace. But even in these linked, synced, and wired times sometimes it’s still best to leave it to the experts. Unlike strict videographers, which focus more on documenting your party’s play-by-play events, cinematographers add a degree of nuance. They are storytellers. And they’re eager to tell the best story possible, highlighting the many beautiful instants at your party.
The result, as the name suggests, is a movie-like experience. A video narrative that plays like a short film or a trailer to a longer movie. Packaged in this manner, today’s cinematographic pieces are perfectly adapted to social media.
