Wedding Videography in NYCReviewed by G.E. Masana on Oct 7Rating:
When it comes to wedding videography in NYC… actually I should correct that to say, “wedding cinematography“, as Adam Forgione of Pennylane Productions considers it.
He very much sees himself as a maker of wedding films, not wedding videos, as “wedding videos” conjures up images of cheesy, long, boring footage served up in decades past. Adam wishes to distinguish his craft from that typical fare. As he recently stated in a New York Magazine interview, “We’re not the company that will pass a microphone around – that’s very tacky.”
I’d have to agree. I’ve never heard anything beyond a quickly tossed out “good luck!” when mics are passed around impromptu at a wedding and often thought, if anything, a more meaningful contribution a bride and groom would wish for, would love to have, would need to be thought through and deliberate. A mother or father choosing a few succinct but deep messages to forever preserve in the memories of their children and family… would mean so much more. “Good luck” is what you say when someone catches you off guard and shoves a mic in your face.
Adam puts as much thought into what he believes makes a superior product and service for his brides and grooms as I do for my wedding couples. For this, I applaud him, recommend him and am not only pleased, but proud to say I’m one of the few, choice photographers Adam Forgione and Pennylane Productions recommends to take care of their clients’ wedding photography.
