Congratulations

I specialize in sophisticated and artistic wedding films.  These stunning and emotion-driven visuals are meant to tell your story and bring you back to those precious and priceless moments, many years from now.  Since I document events as they unfold naturally you won’t even know my team and I are there.  Capturing those once-in-a-lifetime glances and the littlest details, my team then edits them seamlessly.  And, I prefer to use natural lighting when possible to retain the ambiance you have probably spent countless hours trying to achieve.  

My Goal

My goal is to create the best wedding film.  A customized and personalized coverage plan will be designed upon request.  I take a limited number of engagements to ensure that I deliver first-class personal service and quality.  Are you ready for something different?

My Boutique Studio

My boutique style studio is based in Philadelphia, but I love to travel and have been asked to cover weddings all over the nation  as well as several countries as far away as Brazil (it was a 4-day event).   All of my consultations are by appointment only at your convenience and choice of location.

about me

I've always loved music and movies.  In the 5th grade I began learning to play the drums.  Around junior high, I began been assisting area photographers, learning posing and the technical aspect of the gear.  During my time at college for drumming, I thought I was going to be Madonna or Billy Joel's drummer (alas, those positions were filled), but I still loved cinema.  One-day a colleague did not show up and I was asked to step-in and film.  I ended up doing a better job than the regular video guy!  Somehow over the next few years, it seems that I liked making movies more than schlepping the drums.

Over the last 25 years I've learned a whole lot from listening and observing life, educating myself in the art of storytelling and cinema, and making sure my technical chops are the best they can be.  Truthfully, I love being a part of happy moments and celebrations and sharing in the excitement and joy.  There is no better job than to witness the joy of two people in love surrounded by generations of their family and friends.  The music, the lights, the traditions!

I call Bucks County my home along with my supporting wife of 17 years and three amazing kids (one set of twins).  I still love jazz music (electric/fusion), high performance driving, sports cars, and all sorts of new technology/software.

Enough about me...give me a call I'd be happy to talk to you about YOUR celebration.

Your Investment

My fee reflects more than just the time it takes to film the event.  If you're like many of my clients, price isn't the only factor that comes into play when deciding on who will document your event.  Even though your videographer really matters to you, I know that today, getting an incredible value plays a large part in the decision.  You can choose how much to invest...it's 100% up to you (my avg is ~$5,500).

Since I'll be working directly with you on your wedding day, I prefer to customize the scope and areas of importance according to your needs and wishes.  Tell me more about your wedding plans and I'd be happy to discuss how we can work together.

You can reserve me with a simple non-refunable retainer.  I will work with you to get you exactly what you need and give you my thoughts based on 20 years of experience  I try to deliver all of my clients work around 4-6 weeks post event.  You should not be waiting a year to view your finished film.

I wanted to take the time to tell you what an absolute unique "masterpiece" you created! Our wedding "movie" is not only incredible, but more than Rob and I could have ever envisioned the finished product to be.  After reviewing some of the raw footage you sent (you knew I would!)-we have an even deeper respect for all the time, hard work and creativity that went into capturing our wedding day.  Thanks to each of you for making our "Dream Come True Day" come alive again each time we watch it!... Wow!

Thank you again for the wonderful wedding video.  We absolutely love it and are so happy that we’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come.  We still can’t figure out how you managed to be in so many places at one time.  You didn’t miss a single moment of the day!  And you were such a pleasure to work with too.  We’ve been highly recommending you to all of our newly engaged friends!  Thank you again for everything!

Best Wishes,

We have just watched our video for the umpteenth time and are still amazed at what a beautiful job you have done.  We debated long and hard about whether we wanted a video of our wedding day, but we can honestly say that our wedding video is a memory that will last forever.

When we started looking for a videographer, it was a fairly simple process.  We made one call to you and knew immediately that there was a fit, in what our vision of the video would be and what you could provide artistically and technically.  We are so impressed by your professionalism and body of work that we do not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know who is getting married.

Aside from the beautiful job on our wedding video, we also wanted to thank you for your assistance and poise on the day of our wedding.  Your ability to adapt quickly to changing situations and your knack for capturing just the right moments goes without question.

Please feel free to use us as a reference for any potential clients.  We would be more than happy to share with them our positive experience and make sure that they end up choosing, in our opinion, the best video artist in the business.

Thanks again!

Marc and his assistant Brooke were so easy to work with-very unobtrusive.  The finished product was even more than we had imagined!!  It was truly a work of art that captured every special moment!  We would recommend them highly and will use them again in the future ourselves!  The video/DVD is without a doubt nothing short of a masterpiece.  We were speechless & captivated by it as were all our friends & family!  Feel free to contact us if we can be of further assistance!

Marc Smiler is an artist and a true professional. We looked at countless samples over other videography, yet Marc's work stood out from them all. For this reason, we sought him out first.  Of all of our vendors, Marc stood out as the most professional and put-together.  A true professional at his craft and also his business.
