It has been a crazy end to the summer and beginning of the fall at JPod Productions. We traveled with an extra shooter for the last six weeks just in case Hannah tried to make an early entrance into this world. But, like every good woman, she was fashionably late. One week late to be exact. So, without further ado, here is Hannah, New England’s newest little award-winning filmmaker.

 

We continue to film at new wedding venues every year across New England, but one group of venues has really made an impression on us. Longwood Events out of Boston, Cape Cod, Newport and Nantucket has six top-notch wedding sites and they are our Vendor of the Month for October.

We last worked in the heart of Boston at the State Room  this past summer, as we teamed with Bob Manning, who owns Robert Charles Films out of Savannah, GA and Pittsburgh, PA. The former New Englander contacted us to shoot with him as he created a Boston wedding video which I have shared below. The State Room sits on the top of 60 State Street and provides tremendous views of the Boston Harbor and other sights in Downtown Boston. In June, we were lucky enough to enjoy a ceremony and reception in the State Room. I have shared a few photos from the State Room below.

The other venues that are part of the Longwood group are the incredible Belle Mer which is an oceanfront property in Newport, Rhode Island. A second waterside location is the Wychmere Beach Club in Harwich, Massachusetts on the south side of Cape Cod. Both of these locations have incredible ceremony and reception options for a Newport or Cape Cod Wedding video. A fourth location is Alden Castle which is a modern vintage venue in the center of Boston. The last two sites are the laid back Nantucket Beach Club on Jetties Beach in Nantucket and the intimate Longwood Bateau which can accommodate up to 8 people for an event on the water.

I love the professionalism that is displayed at these venues, as they are tops in New England for service, attention to detail and overall delivery to their couples. Below is a Boston wedding video from the State Room that I was part of in June. As mentioned earlier, I teamed with an out of town company to bring the Boston highlight video to the couple. So, if you’re looking for a top-notch wedding reception venue with elegance and modern style, check out Longwood Events.

We didn’t catch this when it was first posted, but it’s always nice to be respected within the wedding industry. We always strive to work seamlessly with the photography team so that both of us can produce the best products for our couples. It was kind of ironic that two vendors living in the same area from the I-91 corridor had never crossed paths, especially seems we both shoot our fair share of Vermont weddings. Here is Cronin Hill’s quick snippet of their experience with us:

      “We had the pleasure of recently working with the team from JPod Productions.  It wasn’t known until wedding day that we were both from Western Mass, and here we were shooting a wedding together in    Killington, Vermont!  From the moment we met Jamie and Mia, we knew it was going to be a great day!  For us, communication between vendors is so important!  We quickly chatted about how each team worked to achieve the best shots possible for our clients. Having two photographers and two videographers can sometimes be tough because each jockeys for position to get ‘their shot’.  We can honestly say, there was none of that with this team :)  We all watched out for each other, got the shots we needed, and had a great time doing it!  We hope to get the chance to work with Jamie and his team again.  We highly recommend contacting JPod Productions for all your videography needs.”
