MEET CRISTIAN M. VELEZ
Hi, I'm the founder and owner of CINEMARVELFILMS, a New York/New Jersey based wedding photography and cinematography company, thanks a lot for your time on checking my work. My passion for photography and films started 8 years ago, when I got my first DSLR camera, and started documenting with photos and videos the best moments of my daughter Layza.
In the past two years, I have collaborated as a second shooter of many wedding films with SHLOMOTIONS, a video production company based in NYC. I would be honored to be part of your special day.
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 who just "point and shoot", my goal is to create dynamic cinematography that bridges together the vivid interplay of emotions shared among your family and friends in a candid, intimate fusion of imagery, sound and movement. I hate to be intrusive, specially during very important and intimate moments like your first look, or ceremony. My commitment will be to help you and many other couples not just to have a great film and photos , but to have a great experience with us along the way.
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"
- The name of my company has nothing to do with Marvel Studios, when I was a teenager, combined one of my names with my last name, and that was my personal logo: Marcelo Velez (Marvel)
- When I'm not doing weddings, I like to spend time with my daughters, and enjoy cooking at home.
Cristian was a fantastic photographer for our wedding day. He was extremely professional and accommodating to our request to make location stops we wanted. He expertly navigated the small venue as well without hindering wedding and guest activity. His deliverable was exactly what we envisioned. I highly recommend Cinemarvelfilms for your photographic needs!

We booked Cristian for our wedding ceremony and party. So far we've seen the sneak peek photos-- which he just sent us hours after the wedding! The photos were truly incredible. He captured some amazing moments which will secure some happy memories for years to come.
Cristian did a fantastic job with our wedding photos! He spent so much time with us and made sure to get all the pictures we wanted and needed. His attention to detail is phenomenal. The sneak peak pictures we just saw are breathtaking, I don't have words to describe them.
