Birchfields Video & Photo

Wedding Films

The highlight film is the focus of what Birchfields offers. We love to tell personal, meaningful stories and cater to the specific needs of our clients. Our films capture the essence of your day and highlight the best of your personalities. They’re meant to be enjoyed with friends and family. Our unique attention to detail goes into making the films feel timeless and personal.

Highlight films vary in length according to your preference as well as other factors. By default, our films are typically 3-6 minutes. Every highlight film also includes a full length video of the ceremony and toasts as well as any other important events in the day. All three videos, the highlight, the ceremony, and the toasts are usually about an hour in length when played together. The total length of delivered wedding footage depends on the length of your ceremony, toasts, and any other special events (Ketubah signing, moment of prayer, special songs, flash mobs, etc). We realize how important it is for families to have a longer, more historically accurate record of the day.

We also want you to enjoy the beauty of your wedding without feeling like you're on the set of a production. Your experience is the focus of our work, and we want our videos to feel personal. We've spent the last 8 years learning how to make cinematic wedding films without the distraction of a large camera crew or obnoxious extra equipment. We love to use drones, super 8 film, and other interesting methods to make your wedding film unique. We know what works and what doesn't. With our minimalist approach, your wedding can still be your wedding.

The music we use is composed and recorded by us, and reserved exclusively for Birchfields’ clients such as yourself.

Ceremony & Toast

The ceremony and toasts are important and sacred parts of any wedding. Every package includes the full ceremony and toasts edited and delivered as part of the final product. These are the real time edits of the actual events shot between several angles and the recorded audio.


All videos are delivered in custom designed boxes. DVD and Blu-ray are not included with either standard packages, but can be added at any time before or after the wedding day.


The same attention to detail from our videos can be found in our photography. A similar style is translated onto still images. We keep up to date with the latest in professional digital photography, and we also use medium format film photography, offering a unique way to artfully capture your day in analogue mediums for an increasingly digital age.

Additional Info

Wedding videos and photo albums are delivered as soon as possible. Photos always take first priority, and are typically edited within 1-3 weeks. Wedding films require more intense work and focus to edit well, and will typically take longer. We sometimes take an extended time to edit the films for the benefit of the client. We don't want a busy work schedule to interfere with the quality of your heirloom wedding film. If you need help printing photos of any size, technical assistance will be provided at no extra charge. Prints are not included. Ordering prints directly from your online album is encouraged but you are free to print from wherever you choose.

Birchfields loves the opportunity for travel. We've filmed and photographed events in California, New Zealand, Guatemala, Scotland, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. No distance is too far. Now accepting reservations for moon weddings in 2030.

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider Birchfields. We would be honored to help you in your planning and celebration. Let us know how we can help make you more comfortable and your day more memorable.
