Cinematic & Documentary Films Explained

There are two basic types or styles of wedding films that we offer as a Miami wedding videographer:  Documentary & Cinematic, let’s define them:

Documentary: Think of it as just how your wedding happened from beginning to end, chronological wedding movie.  It’s just like how you see a documentary on TV.

Documentary type focuses on simply capturing the day, as it happens, in the order that it happened. This type of Miami wedding videographer film usually has very little cut out of the final product, and has little to no dramatic camera angles, music added or special effects used.

Documentary style wedding films tend to be 1-2 hours in length and most who watch them keep their finger on the fast forward button.  Why?  Sometimes people don’t want to watch a long drawn out movie.  Contrast that with the other type, Cinematic.

Cinematic:  A cinematic-style video captures the emotional feelings you have for each other on the biggest day of your lives.  Think of a cinematic type as the romantic feeling you and your soon to be spouse have for each other, the passion, the love, the fun times.  It’s that feeling of butterflies you get when you first met and realized “this is the one”.

It’s the “butterflies in the stomach” feeling you get when you realized “they are the one”.  It almost can’t be described; it’s a beautiful, magical movie of your wedding day, set to music.

Cinematic films are defined as a “film-like” look.  This style aims to increase the emotional impact through use of slow motion and transition effects, saturated colors, creative camera angles and dramatic music.  They are usually less than 20 minutes in length.

It has that “wow” factor to tell your story in a unique way.  A cinematic filmed wedding can cost you more and used to be more intrusive with large cameras but with today’s smaller equipment, a cinematic film can be captured as easily as a documentary.

So how do you decide which Miami wedding videographer style is for you?

It’s a personal choice of how you want to remember the day. Do you want a sequential account of the day or do you want the highlights presented in a cinematic expression of the day?  The cinematic style will take a little while longer to produce, to capture the essence of the day.

No matter which style of wedding video you choose, the same care in capturing your wedding memories is given to all of our Miami wedding videographer clients.
