Why Choose Ethan Film and Photo for Your Creative Wedding Video?
At Ethan Film and Photo, we redefine wedding videography, transcending the ordinary to craft visual symphonies that resonate with emotions. Unlike the commonplace, we utilize gimbals as our tools of choice. While most videographers rely on monopods or tripods, resulting in static videos, our gimbals seamlessly capture motion and activity within the frame, reflecting the dynamic essence of your day. The result? Videos that feel as though a handheld drone is tracing your journey.
But we don’t stop there. We extend the magic, offering the option to include drone footage in your wedding movie. When fused with the footage captured on our DJI Ronin gimbals, the effect is nothing short of stunning.
Imagine the power of motion breathed into first dances and first looks, transporting you back to those precious moments. Not as a distant observer, but as a participant in the very essence of the experience.
Ethan Film and Photo takes immense pride in our creativity and the ability to craft a wedding video that is as unique as your love story. We create memories that mirror the authenticity and beauty of your bond, capturing the heart and soul of your journey together.

Adrian and Alisha came to me after they had a disaster of an experience with doing engagement photos at a resort in Mexico with the hotel photographer. I felt bad that they had such a terrible experience and wanted to make them something really unique. So we set out in Denver, Colorado and Rocky Mountain National Park to do an engagement shoot. I wanted to make them an engagement video that would incorporate all the photos we shot, put into a film strip and used within the video along with film burns for a creative retro effect. We always shoot high quality 4K videos, so when you apply film burns and mattes on top, you get a high quality looking video that’s a mix of modern and vintage.
“The Ring of Fire” is one of my favorite creative in-camera effect to use. It works great for photos, creating an epic composition, but also works very well for transitions in videos. Typically family portraits don’t make it into the videos, because there are so many other great moments of the day to feature in a wedding video. For Andrew and Jamie’s Wedding at Great Marsh Estate in Bealton, VA I used the “Ring of Fire” Effect to transition from a shot of Andrew’s dad fixing his bowtie, to a walking bridal party shot with the couple. It adds warmth to the shot and is a creative way to add some unique flare to your wedding videos.
