a marvelous way to capture the magic of wedding season

An affordable alternative for stylish brides on a budget

Cinema Petit Wedding Films are designed for the creative bride with discerning style, but not the grandest wedding budget. As wedding planning rolls into gear, it is often the cinematographer that is one of the first things to get cut in the bridal budget. We set out to create a super affordable way for brides to have a cinematic heirloom from such a momentous day, as well as the swirl of momentous events throughout the wedding season. Our memory films are an incredible way to preserve the magic: from engagement announcements to bridal showers and bachelorettes, to the honeymoon itself. Cinema Petit wedding films enable you to have a collection of wedding heirloom videos every step of the way - all from your smartphone videos!  

Cinema Petit wedding films are a fresh new approach to the DIY wedding video concept - no cheesy templates, no generic music - just a beautifully edited  memory portrait. A cornerstone to the whole process is our Cinema Petit Tipsheet that includes a custom shotlist, simple video upload info,  and how-to tips that are easy to follow and make the whole process a snap for whoever is designated to capture the day with their smartphone. What are the top 3 most important things to grab video of at the wedding? How do you make the shots look lovely once it gets dark? Don't worry, we've got you covered with the Cinema Petit Tipsheet.

Reinventing the concept of the DIY wedding video

“I am in love!  I received my little film as a surprise wedding gift from my maid of honor who secretly shot video day-of ... I didn't have a videographer at my wedding, and I was recently wishing I did. I am so, so glad she was able to pull off such an amazing surprise!"

A BIT MORE ABOUT ...

 

Wedding Films

Cinema Petit wedding films are created from smartphone video shot by 1 or 2 trusted people in attendance at the wedding, usually designated by the bride. (TIP: tap your most artistic bridesmaid and/or your graphic designer cousin!) Following our guidance, they grab little snippets of the day - pretty much the same concept of snapping a photo with their phone, only they are pressing play and taking video. We provide all the info they need ahead of time to capture the most important moments in the most beautiful way. Through our super simple shotlist and essential how-to tipsheet, we make it all extremely easy. And best of all, no one is stuck shooting video all night and can have a blast themselves!

Take a peek at some of our favorite Wedding Films above. 

 

honeymoon films

After all of the toasting and nuptial celebrations, it’s now just the two of you! Designed for couples who want a lovely memory of their honeymoon, but in a private, non-invasive way. We provide you with a simple honeymoon shot list for you to shoot little video snippets here and there of your adventure, and include some helpful tips to keep things fun and easy (for example, how to capture video with BOTH of you in the frame!). And since you take all of the video yourself, the result is a beautiful little memory film featuring the two of you fresh, relaxed, and gloriously happy … it’s the perfect keepsake of your first adventure together as husband and wife.
