Cinematic Wedding Video

A FILM WITH YOUR MOMENTS, PERSONALITY, AND STORY.

 

We create cinematic wedding films and stories you won’t find anywhere else.

Langer Imagery is a creative wedding video production studio specializing in a blend of one-of-a-kind film-making, personal service, and the experience you have throughout the whole process.  Envision a film that captures everything about your wedding day — your moments, personality, and story.  We craft our films using defined cinematic techniques and classic editing to create a wedding film like no other.  Afterwards, you will have something to cherish that is unlike anything else you will invest in for your wedding.

STORY-TELLING

Every story has a beginning, middle and end.  Your wedding does too.  We craft your wedding film using defined cinematic film making with classic and timeless editing to create a wedding film like no other.

HIGH-DEFINTION

We use the highest camera and sound equipment to insure that your wedding film looks and feels like a film you would see in theaters.  There is so much that goes into making the perfect film for you and it starts with providing the best quality equipment.

PRE-PRODUCTION

Your wedding day can be crazy. To put you at ease and ensure your day will run smoothly, all of the necessary details that will be covered on your wedding day will be thoroughly planned out before the wedding itself.

DEBUT PREMIERE

Take your seats, grab some popcorn, the show is about to begin!  You and your friends and family are invited to a special premiere of your wedding film in the Langer Imagery studio.  This is a private gala where you and your partner will make your big screen debut!

EXTRAS

We understand the wedding film is not always enough and you would like more.  We offer edited footage by the minute to our couples who want to see their ceremony entirely or watch their toasts again.  Want a more personal touch? Our Film Booth is great way for your guests to say congratulations or to tell you how much they love you, something a traditional Photo Booth cannot do.  All of our extras can be bundled into your package or offered as a la carte items before and after your wedding.

TURN-AROUND

After your wedding is done, you are probably wondering when the film will be finished.  Since we put so much time into producing your film, we spend just as much time on the finishing touches to your film.  Our typical turnaround for your quality, cinematic wedding film is about three months and any extras typically take two months.

HIGHLIGHTS FILM

Just the essentials expressed through your moments.

Our Highlights Film Package is our base package.  
The package includes 2 cinematographers, 5-7 minute film, and 10 hours of wedding day coverage.
Typical turnaround is at least four months from your wedding day or trailer release on the media of your choice and online.
 

SIMPLICITY.

The Highlights Film is our simplest film.  The essence of your wedding crafted simply to remember the highlights of your wedding.  It has a bit of everything, nothing too long.  Sometimes less is more.

YOUR MOMENTS.

Although this film is shorter, don’t fool it for less.  All of our films, including this one, have all the visual elements of your wedding including key audio from the day.  We don’t believe in “wedding day music videos” and think you should still have the cherished moments with important speeches. 

I would like more, please!

Want even more footage from your wedding day?  You will receive all of the speeches from your wedding day and you can purchase your ceremony in full.  Even if this is the shortest film, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t receive more!

SHORT FILM.00_00_26_08.Still001.jpg

SHORT FILM

Little bit more than before.

Our Short Film adds four minutes to the Highlights Film and adds 2 hours of wedding day coverage.
Typical turnaround is at least four months from your wedding day or trailer release on the media of your choice and online.

POPULAR FOR A REASON!

Sometimes the Feature Film is a bit too much and the Highlights Film is too short, so why not get something in between?  This wedding film encompasses everything our Feature Film has, the classic story-telling elements and authentic audio from your wedding day without the longer duration. 

Still not enough?

Want even more footage from your wedding day?  You can still purchase the ceremony in full.  More footage plus a short film equals a happy couple!

FEATURE FILM

Your story, retold.

Our Feature Film is a seven minute upgrade to the Highlights Film.  
It also adds another cinematographer and 4 hours of wedding day coverage.
Typical turnaround is at least 5 months from your wedding day or trailer release on the media of your choice and online.  

“This is a wedding video?”

You might ask yourself this question and the simple answer is, “Yes it is!”  We use defined cinematic film-making and classic editing to create a real film from your wedding day.  We do not set a tripod up in the back and forget about it, we are always searching for the right moments to tell your story of your wedding day. 

The ultimate family heirloom.

This is as close as you are going to get to the best thing you can show family in the future, especially your kids.  Remember when you would sit around watching your home videos from when you were a kid, you will do the same with your kids when they ask what your wedding was like that day.  This film will be something you watch time and time again with every generation. 

This isn’t enough!

Want even more footage from your wedding day?  You can purchase complete, edited footage of different events like the ceremony and dances.  This is a great addition when the Feature Film isn’t enough!

CINEMATOGRAPHY INDIVIDUALS

TRAILER

Get ready, a sneak peek into what is to come!

Our trailer is 1-2 minutes long and gives you a quick sneak peek into your wedding film.  
Typical turnaround takes one month from your wedding day.  

Just a little something.

The wedding is over and the dust has settled.  You might have just gotten back from your honeymoon, opened all your presents, and/or finally written all the thank you letters.  You might be wondering, when will I get to see a little something?  Your trailer is released before your finished film so you don’t have to wait! 

Check this out!

All trailers are posted online so you can share them with friends and family!  Don’t worry about posting it on social media, we encourage it!  We love when everyone can see your trailer! 


LOVE STORY

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Typical turnaround is at least 1-2 months from the filming of your love story. The love story will be posted online before your wedding.

How I met your…

Mother, Father, Mommy, or Daddy.  Either one works when you show this to your future generations.  While you are at it, you can continue to play your Wedding Film too.  The Love Story is a great way to complete your package.

Reception Slideshows.

They are a thing of the past, why not showcase your new Love Story to your family and friends at the reception?  This is the perfect time to show everyone how you met and the story behind your relationship after just getting married.  If you would rather show a slideshow than our love story, it is cool, just make sure you share your story online with everyone! 

How I met your…

Mother, Father, Mommy, or Daddy.  Either one works when you show this to your future generations.  While you are at it, you can continue to play your Wedding Film too.  The Love Story is a great way to complete your package.


STORY BOOTH

I remember when…

The Film Booth is delivered with your Wedding Film on the media of your choice and online.

Roast or a Toast?

We will capture those priceless moments as your friends and family tell us all about you when you were young or tell us an embarrassing story.  Do you want something a bit more loose? we could even put together a roast for you as comedic gesture during the reception.  Either way, it is a great time to remember what is most important and remember all the great times everyone shared together.

Meet the new Photo Booth.

Our Story Booth goes beyond the funny faces, props, and limitations of a photo booth to something even more.  Our Story Booth incorporates audio and video to create a seamless dynamic experience you can relive again and again.  We film during the reception and create a space where guests are invited to share their stories. 

INVESTMENT

Our approach with every couple.

Are we the right fit for your wedding day?  Our approach is different from others because we work with our couples throughout the whole process.  We are with you before the wedding, planning out every detail of our coverage.  We show up on the wedding day, on time and ready to go.  After the wedding, we work hard crafting your film and make sure you enjoy seeing it for the first time. Not only is our product unique, our approach to wedding cinematography is unique.

Did you know?

The most important question I have for you before booking with us is, how will you remember your wedding day?  In 2013, The Knot and Wedding Channel surveyed over 17,000 brides from across the country in their annual Real Weddings Study and found that brides spent an average of 5% of their budget on videography/cinematography.  When you think about it, 5% is such a small number compared to all the other things that will easily be forgotten after the wedding.  We aren’t asking you to break the bank for us but want you to carefully consider all of your options when putting together your wedding.  We are here to document one of the most important days of your life through film, something that shouldn’t be 5% of your total budget.  

Why YOU need a wedding film!

In a couple of years, will you remember the flowers, or the great things your friends and family said, or even the food you ate that day?  Probably not. What we offer gets you the closest thing to your real wedding than any other part of your total investment.  We love photographers (we use to offer wedding photography to our couples) but there is something about a good wedding film — hearing your loved ones giving a toast, watching your friends having fun at the reception, or seeing yourself walk down the aisle one more time.  Video and audio from every part of your wedding will last forever.  In a few years, you can thank us because you will remember your wedding day!

Invest into wedding cinematography.  

Whether you book with us or someone else, wedding cinematography is one of the greatest investments you will ever make for your wedding.  We hope we are the right fit and offer what you are looking for in a wedding cinematography studio.  If we are, we look forward to meeting with you and being there on your wedding day.

FAQ

WHAT IS LANGER IMAGERY?  TELL US MORE!

Langer Imagery is a company started by Chris Langer, an avid filmmaker and editorial photographer specializing in wedding cinematography based in Cleveland, Ohio.  Chris Langer grew up and returned to Cleveland after college where he studied Photojournalism at Rochester Institute of Technology.  Chris pursued filmmaking near the end of college and cannot stop making films.  Anytime other than your wedding, Chris spends his time working on independent films in Cleveland and photographing for national magazines.  Some of his clients include AARP, NBC News, and Southwest Airlines.

HOW DO I GO ABOUT BOOKING WITH YOU?  WHAT IS YOUR DEPOSIT?

First, send us a message giving us the details of your wedding using the Contact form.  All of our clients are booked on a first come, first served basis.  A deposit of 25% of the total bundle is due at the time of booking.  Langer Imagery does not consider a date completely booked without a signed contract and deposit paid in full.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Langer Imagery is based in Cleveland, Ohio and is available for travel worldwide. For all of our weddings within the Cleveland/Akron area, travel is included in the bundle price.  If we have to drive a few hours but can make it home that night, we only charge mileage.  If we have to make accommodations, you will have to cover all the costs of traveling – car/plane travel, rental car, hotels, and food.  Please inquire about your wedding and we can put together a specialized quote for you.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

We shoot all of our weddings using professional digital cinema cameras and lenses used in independent films and professional commercials.  Our primary cinematographers use the Canon C100 and the Canon DSLRs for extra angles.  We use individual lavalier microphones to gather audio from very important people throughout the wedding (ex. toasts, vows, etc…).  If you wish to know what separates our equipment from others, please get in touch!

DO YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A THEATER?  THAT IS REALLY COOL!

When designing our new studio, we wanted to create an experience like none other in Cleveland.  We are filmmakers and avid moviegoers ourselves, we wanted to bring that feeling of going to the theaters to our clients, especially since that movie is yours!  It is something else to see your film on the big screen with your close family and friends.    Our theater comfortably seats the bride and groom and 12 guests, family and/or friends.  We pop all the popcorn you could eat and provide beverages/snacks at no additional cost.  This is our thank you for booking with us and a gift we want to give back to you!

WHY DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM OF TWO CINEMATOGRAPHERS, CAN YOU JUST USE ONE?

To make a successful film, you have to have different angles to keep the pace of the film flowing at all times.  Langer Imagery requires a minimum of two cinematographers because we feel you cannot capture enough footage for an edited film with just one cinematographer.  In some cases, we have to have three cinematographers so we can cover every moment of the wedding effectively without missing anything.

DO YOU HAVE BUSINESS INSURANCE?

Yes we do! We are covered up to a couple of million, so that should cover everything if something happens on your wedding day.  If your venue requires a Certificate of Insurance from us, please let us know!

WHAT DO YOU DO BEFORE THE WEDDING TO PREPARE?

After you book with us, we inquire about your schedule and put together a plan of what we hope to film on your wedding day.  We have a pre-production meeting together and go over everything about your wedding day.  At that time, we will scout the locations with you and go over where everything is happening during your wedding day.  We hope with enough focus on pre-producing your wedding day, we can craft the best film for you and show you what you can expect on your wedding day.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE UNTIL I GET TO SEE MY FILM?

We have various expected deadlines set for each film and individual item we provide to you.  Please refer to the cinematography page for more details regarding how long your bundle will take to deliver in entirety.  All of our films receive the complimentary debut theater viewing but if you are not interested, we can post your film online before we deliver your disc(s).  Trailers are released online and shortly after your wedding day.

WHAT IF I WANT CERTAIN EVENTS IN FULL?  WHY DON’T YOU OFFER RAW FOOTAGE?

We believe RAW footage is an incomplete product and offers no benefits to you.  Video cannot be compared to a similar concept used in wedding photography, RAW footage vs. a DVD of photos.  Video has various clips of the same moment in your wedding day and through editing we create the visual representation of the moment.  If we just hand over the RAW footage, you won’t be able to make sense of anything since we shot multiple cameras and separate audio.  With the edited footage, you get a complete product so you can watch your special moments from the wedding day.  Our Highlights Film Package includes your full set of speeches and you can purchase your full ceremony in addition.  We also offer edited footage purchased in increments of 10 minutes and can include anything from your wedding day – dances, first looks, etc… You can purchase additional footage even after your film is finished.
