Based in Newtown, PA, Ries Video Productions is a wedding videography company. Films from this business are centered around the people who will watch them, wanting to create something with tangible emotions. The creation of heartfelt wedding footage is this company’s sole focus. They want every couple to have a high-quality, in-depth, memento of their day. Kari Ries, the founder of Ries Video Productions, got her first taste of wedding films when editing her own wedding video in 1994. She didn’t enjoy reliving her day through raw footage, and so decided to create something people would want to re-watch. Kari has been in love with the art of videography since she was a college student, and decided to turn it into her full-time career. She has previously worked as a cameraperson with NBC10 in Philadelphia, so she is well accustomed to working under pressure. This experience taught her the art of visual storytelling, a skill that is apparent in her work to this day. Kari can document weddings in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware, alongside her home of Bucks County. Wedding videos from Ries Video Productions focus on capturing moments as they happen. Kari’s style is discreet. She prefers to document the couple’s natural interactions with each other and their loved ones, rather than interrupt with requests for poses. The story of the wedding day is told through moments both big and small, all of which are tied together for a cohesive final product. Understanding the importance of editing, Kari takes great care with perfecting her films. She is hands-on when it comes to finalizing the video, carefully choosing a soundtrack and designing cover art. This artist believes that a wedding video is something that should be watched over and over again. She wants to deliver the perfect blend of emotion that keeps the experience fresh, every time it’s watched.
