You bring the fun!
At Michael Joseph Films, we love to capture the fun of your special occasions on film. Now you can get your silly on with the newest trend in event cinematography, Slow Motion Video Booth. It’s your time in the spot light, and we’re filming at the super high speed of 300 frames per second. We start filming, and you greet us with your motions, so much funnier than the standard frozen frame photobooths that you’re used to at special events. For larger events, we can even have the running footage broadcasted on a screen for all to enjoy and get in on the fun!
Then, once back at the studio, we take that raw footage, set it to fantastic music, and go to town speeding up, slowing down and piecing all of the raw the footage together. Wouldn’t this be a great addition to weddings, sweet sixteens and bar/bat mitzvahs?
Enjoy the Brookhaven Emergency Medical Physician’s holiday party! Oh, and don’t worry, they’re much more professional on the clock, you have nothing to worry about.
I’m rapidly realizing how quickly children grow up, and as I record more and more special occasions, I realize how fleeting special moments are. I’m utterly thankful for the incredible technology that exists within the art of videography and photography. I recently had the opportunity to take my first family vacation to Disney World with my beautiful fiance and step-daughter, Arianna. It was so special to have these magical moments on film.
Even now, months later, I see this film and am instantly happy. The moments, although they’re only memories now seem to come back to life and refresh in my mind. I’m going to cherish this trip and video for life, it was Arianna’s first magical moments. As I watch her grow up, I’m certain that she’s going to have many more special and magical moments in time, her first dance recital, her sweet sixteen celebration, high school and college graduations, her engagement and eventually a beautiful wedding day. I’ll be the one behind the cameras, with the biggest grin on my face, preserving the special occasions- preserving them to last a lifetime.
Think about your special moments, wouldn’t you love to be able to look back and relish in them again with just the touch of a play button. Event films shouldn’t be something that is considered as “extras,” filming an event that is important to you and the ones you love should be imperative. Everyone has a story, let Michael Joseph Films tell yours.
Remember that movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding? We can’t help but think about that movie and enjoy a good laugh every time we hear someone mention a Greek Wedding. This year, Michael Joseph Films had the immense pleasure to work with the incredibly talented, Julian Ribinick Photography on a gorgeous Greek wedding at the beautiful Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey.
This special bride and groom have such a sweet love story. Kathy and Ari met through a mutual friend at a cafe she was working at. From that moment on they became inseparable friends. Hesitant to ruin their friendship, Kathy kept turning down dates when asked by Ari. It didn’t take long for her to realize that resisting was silly, as she was already in love with him! Fast forward a few months, Ari proposed to Kathy on Christmas Eve at Rockefeller Center under the majestic tree. Ari crafted a wonderful story about how if one was to wish on one of the lights, the wish would come true. First he made a wish, and once he was done, Kathy closed her eyes to make a wish. When she opened them again, there was Ari, on bended knee with a ring.
With such a creative engagement, and a lovely couple, we were thrilled to be included in their wedding. Enjoy this wedding video highlight that we’ve created for them.
Now THAT is what we call a beautiful Greek Wedding! Congratulations to Kathy and Ari!

As I have had the pleasure of watching my step-daughter grow so quickly in the short time she’s been around, I’ve come to realize how rapidly so many special moments pass us by. This is why I’m so happy to grab onto memories caught on film. I’m so thankful for the fantastic technology that is able to preserve her special smile and silly laugh just as I viewed it in person. I’m certain that her mother and I will look adoringly at our videos for many years to come. It’s amazing to know that her children or grandchildren will be able to enjoy a piece of our time as well.
Part of the reason why myself and my crew at Michael Joseph Films enjoy our jobs, is because we get to get up close and personal during your special moments, and you don’t have to miss a beat. Grandpa isn’t stuck behind the camera, and you get to spend your quality time actually making memories!
Another reason why we love to create beautiful and fun event films for you is to honor all of your hard work! You spend lots of time, energy, effort and money on selecting each spectacular detail for your special event. Preserving the finest details on film creates perfect imagery and makes the viewer feel like they were present at the event. We love that we can highlight details that might have otherwise gone unnoticed or been long forgotten.
Come enjoy Calia’s Quincenaera with us and think about how amazing it would be to have a great film for your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah or Sweet Sixteen celebration. Memories will be preserved forever in a classic documentary style film that tells your story.
I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to take engagement pictures of a very special couple, Jay and Freddy. I’ve had the opportunity to know Jay since the day I was born, he’s my brother!
Jay works in IT and Freddy is an artist, and they are fun and fabulous! Getting creative during their photo shoot came naturally to them, and it certainly was showcased in their photos.
Feeling comfortable and natural is so important when a couple is booking a videographer and photographer for their engagement photo session, and their wedding. If a couple feels like they’re in front of the camera and uncomfortable in their session, it’s going to show through. This is a reason why at Michael Joseph Films, we have a natural and laid back approach to our art. We don’t want you to feel like there’s a camera shoved in your face, we want you to be lost in the moment with the one you love, and in the comfort of a friend.
Often, an ample amount of time, planning and consideration goes into popping the question. In a whirlwind of excitement and a blink of an eye, it’s gone. Why not let Michael Joseph Films get in on the action? We’ll artfully capture that special moment on film, and preserve your incredible memory forever!
