Cristian Marcelo Vélez
Primary Cinematographer | Owner
I'm the founder and owner of CINEMARVEL FILMS LLC, a New York/New Jersey based wedding photography and cinematography company.
My love for photography and film started when I got one of my first cameras over 13 years ago, I began filming my daughter's life from birth all the way until she was 7 years old. When I edited all of the short clips together to create a film capturing her first seven years of life, my passion for creating memories and telling stories through video began.
In the past 5 years, I have collaborated with SHLOMOTIONS, a video company based in NYC, worked as an associated wedding cinematographer at HAND CRAFT PICTURES (London base cinematographer), ROCK LIFE STUDIOS, ALYSSA KAUFMAN FILMS, DELIA STUDIOS, PACIFIC PICTURES (internationally acclaimed wedding films), KENNETH COOPER FILMS (luxury destination wedding film company), SOLIDITYFILMS, ROMANTIC WEDDINGS by LORENZO MEDIA PRODUCTIONS, and CINEMACAKE, a leading wedding video production company located in Philadelphia.
About my style: everyone can shoot photos and video, but not everyone can tell a story. Unlike many of the standard event photographers or videographers in the industry, my goal is to create dynamic cinematography that bridges together the emotions shared among your family and friends in a candid fusion of imagery, sound and movement while we remaining unobtrusive.
Here's a few fun facts about me!
I used to write songs, and have a couple of singles on iTunes and Spotify.
Big fan of "Star Wars".
When I'm not doing weddings, I like to spend time with my daughters, exploring new places, and cooking.
