Videography & Photography

Iowa Elite Events offers two styles of wedding video.  Our documentary film, is for those of you on a budget, but would like a professionally produced video of your wedding.  We offer our documentary style film with our "The Main Event" package.  Documentary style wedding film captures the events, as they happen in the order in which they happened. There is very little special editing with a documentary wedding film.  The final product  will be a professionally produced film of your ceremony, from beginning to end, that you can enjoy with your family and friends for a lifetime of enjoyment.

If you are looking for more of a love story type film of your day, then our cinematic wedding film is for you.  With our cinematic style film, we capture every moment of your wedding, grasping the small details that you might have missed during your busy day.  Our cinematic wedding film tells the story of your day, with sound bites of you and your guests, infused into the final film, creating a dramatic recreation of the events throughout your special day.  Every element of your day is blended into an amazing short film, filled with the emotion, sounds and ambiance that you can relive forever.  

Videography is truly different from photography of your wedding.  Our approach is that there is absolutely no script or special poses required.  As your videographer  we always dress appropriately and blend into your event as best we can.  We want you to pretend that we are not even there.  Our goal is to obtain a spontaneous observation of your special day and create  a masterpiece that you can appreciate the rest of your life.  

Loren Gingerich is our lead videographer/photographer at Iowa Elite Events.  Loren studied photography and marketing at University of Iowa and Kirkwood Community College.  He is well versed in electronics and very fluent with Adobe and Pinnacle editing software, which is the software we use to create your memories.  He has been busy as a chef & restaurant owner for past five years, but has recently closed the restaurant to pursue his passion with film and music.
