Having a professional capture your day in beautiful cinematic style is one wedding decision you will not regret! It’s the perfect way to look back at your wedding day and remember all of the little moments. Today we are happy to introduce you to a wonderful team who offers modern wedding video coverage, Mint Wedding Cinematography!
The Mint team, our newest Vendor We Heart, is based in Brooklyn, New York. They work with couples in the area to create cinematic wedding videos to capture their day perfectly.
We recently caught up with Chris, one of Mint’s founders, for a quick Q&A to help you get to know the company…
What inspired you to start your business?
Wedding videos of the past were traditionally perceived (in some cases, rightfully so) as tacky. We wanted to break the mold of your uncle lugging a fifty pound VHS recorder over his shoulder and shoot cinematic/creative wedding videos.
If you could give one tip to couples who are planning a wedding, what would it be?
Don’t over schedule the day. You need to be able to relax and have fun. We’ve seen so many couples too busy to even eat!
If you could advise couples not to overlook one key detail in their wedding plans, what would it be?
Lighting. Natural light is the best for photos and video, but when it is not available, try keeping the lighting simple and not too dark. Multi-colored neon club lights come across as harsh and unflattering on video.
What is your one must-have item/product/tool to have on-hand when you’re working?
Our cameras! We are pretty low mateniance bunch and prefer to keep our gear to a minimum as not to take away from the day.
If you had to choose one word to describe yourself/your business what would it be?
What is your personal favorite color used in weddings?
Why a coral orange of course!
On your day off you can be found…
At the movies
Wedding Cake, cupcakes, or a candy/cookie bar? Which is your personal fave?
Candy/Cookie bar because there’s so much variety. If you don’t like, move on to the next! But lets be honest, all of them!
If you could work on the ultimate destination wedding, where would it be?
We’d like to shoot in Iceland! A few photographers we’ve worked with shot there and we’d love the opportunity!
Do you have any tips or suggestions for brides when it comes to finding the perfect dress?
Make sure you’re comfortable in it! And have comfy shoes for the reception.
Here are a few examples of videos by Mint Wedding Cinematography. Not only do they offer wedding coverage, they also enjoy creating unique save the date videos and even offer a slow motion video booth!
