- ABOUT ME -
Hey! I’m James, the one man team behind Erb Video Productions. I'm a wedding filmmaker, and I currently live in Buffalo, NY, but I've also spent parts of my life in Rochester, NY and New Haven, CT.
I never thought I’d end up calling myself a wedding filmmaker, especially since I was never very artistic or creative, but looking back, it kind of makes sense. Some of my favorite music growing up was movie soundtracks, and I was always the guy in my childhood friend groups shooting videos of all of us doing stupid stuff together on my cell phone. I started shooting videos with an actual camera later on in my life, & once I discovered wedding filmmaking a few years ago, I was hooked. I love all the challenges of shooting a wedding day, getting to know all the amazing people & couples that come with it, and seeing all of it come together in one awesome video that couples gets to watch for the rest of their lives.
The way I create these videos is a big reason why I like to refer to myself as a "filmmaker" as opposed to simply a videographer. I love being actively involved in planning & shooting, and developing a story out of all the content I capture. Editing & storytelling are huge parts of why I love doing what I do.
When I’m not shooting or editing videos, you’ll either find me hiking, traveling to ultimate frisbee tournaments, spending time with my family, or watching tons of football in the fall (Go Bills!). Pizza is my favorite food & I would probably eat it every day of my life if I could. I’m also a bit of a nerd and love anything that has to do with physics, space, or engineering. Naturally, Interstellar is one of my favorite films of all time.
Speaking of favorites, my favorite person of all time is my wife. We’ve been married for less than a year, and we love every day of figuring out life together. Getting married to Sara gave me an even greater perspective of all the emotions & special moments experienced on a wedding day. It was a whirlwind to me, but by far the greatest day of my life. Experiencing that day made me even more excited that I get to capture those incredible moments for other couples.
As much as my wedding day was a complete whirlwind, so was figuring out this journey of creating wedding films for so many people. I officially launched my business at the start of 2018, and I can’t believe how far it has come since. Life is an interesting journey with unexpected twists and turns, and I’m very excited to see where this part of my life will take me.
If you’ve read this far, I really appreciate you taking the time to read a bit more about me. Now, it’s your turn - I hope to hear from you soon! I'd love to tell your story.
Along with being one of the biggest parties a couple will ever throw, a wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell an epic story through film.
Think about it - every person who has played an important role in the life of you & your future spouse will be there on your wedding day to reflect and share stories about your relationship.
All the different stories shared by loved ones on your wedding day are exactly what I love capturing, along with all the candid, special moments between you & your partner. After shooting your wedding, I'll spend 20-30+ hours editing & crafting a film that not only captures memories, but also tells a story that you can share for the rest of your life.
I love that these films combine my creativity & passion for editing with couples vision's for their wedding day. The best part of all this is, by far, hearing couples reactions after all the effort I've poured into my films, knowing that they've received something that will forever bring them back to the happiest day of their life.
Read couple's reactions after they watched their wedding films for the first time:
"I highly recommend James! From start to finish he was fantastic to work with, and his video turned out more amazing than we could ever imagine. He captured every part of our day perfectly, and I feel like I re-live the day every time I watch the video. Trusting James with such a momentous day was one of the best decisions we made. Thank you so much!"
