We are Kiss the Bride Films: a Brooklyn-based cooperative of wedding cinematographers.
We believe that your memories should last a lifetime. We’re here to make sure that happens.
For the past nine seasons, our artists have collaborated to produce personal and profound mementos that integrate and synthesize documentary and editorial styles. Our approach is team-oriented and proactive, placing a premium on technical prowess and creative story-telling. Our signature aesthetic is cinematic and sentimental — but never saccharine. We are proud members of Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book and are thrilled to be counted among “the best of the best” in wedding films.
It is an honor and a privilege to share in your joy — and to make a memory for you!
