Earlier this spring, we were fortunate enough to be asked to take part in a wedding planning conference put on by wedding planner Andrea Poisson Delucia of Elegance & Grace Weddings. The Elite Workshop took place the historic Dane Estate at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, MA and featured several of the top professionals in their field from the New England area. The conference was designed to help the younger professional in our industry begin to grow their business, but the wealth of information provided could have benefit the most seasoned professional in many ways.

We were honored to be one of the speakers at the conference, as we shared the importance of cinematography and the important things to consider when searching for a videographer or cinematographer for your client (as a wedding planner). Our talk was just the beginning of a day-long workshop that focused on growing your business through branding, stylized shoots, photography, getting published in magazines, incorporating a floral event designer, and utilizing specialized vendors to up improve your event. Some of the professionals who presented at the workshop included the event’s organizer Andrea Poisson Delucia, Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore, Danielle Duane of Boston Magazine, Binita Patel of Binita Patel Photography, Erica Jones of Orchids N’ Blooms Event Design, Jennifer Iovino of JMI Branding Forward and Crystal Mills of Wanderlush Boston. We have always believed in giving back to the industry that has been very good to us. And, Andrea and the team of professionals assembled for the Elite Workshop live by the same motto. Enjoy this short highlight film of the conference from this spring.

JPod Productions was honored as one of the top filmmaking companies in New England for the third straight at the annual New England Professional Videographer’s Association’s (NPVA) VISTA awards last night in Dedham, MA. Our short Film, Jennifer + Michael’s Love Story was given the Silver Award in the “other” category. This Boston wedding video captures the story of how Jennifer Singer and Michael Marcus’ paths crossed and the journey that brought them to their wedding day. We premiered their film at their wedding reception just a few months ago. The reaction from that night was rewarding and electric and very similar to the response we get when we show a same day edit film.

Boston Award Winning wedding video

We were also honored and very humbled as one of the other winners, Elena Coyne, thanked JPod Productions Owner Jamie Podworski for inspiring her with a presentation he did in January at the NPVA on creating wedding trailers. Elena said she used the knowledge and inspiration from that night to edit one of her weddings before the VISTA deadline, which was only three days away at that time. That moment definitely defined why we participate in NPVA group, as filmmakers share knowledge with other filmmakers. It not only makes our Boston wedding videos better, but it makes our industry so much stronger as a whole.  

The VISTA awards are a New England-based competition run by the New England Professional Videographer’s Association (NPVA). The NPVA is an organization of not only Boston wedding videographers and corporate producers, but also companies across New England who meet once a month to learn from regional and national speakers who specialize in the film making industry. Awards in the VISTA competition are presented in four categories including “Full Wedding”, “Wedding Highlight”, “Corporate”, and “Other”. The “Other” category is designed for videos that do not fit into the other three categories of the competition.


We were excited to announce that we were invited to take part in the Berkshire Wedding Collective. As a Boston Wedding videographer and cinematographer, we often find ourselves traveling to the western-most parts of Massachusetts to film weddings and events. The Berkshires is just an extremely charming area of the state with beautiful architecture, picturesque views and unique events that are exciting to film. The Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club has always been a popular spot on our calendar, but we find ourselves at new, different venues, as well as private properties for fabulous events and weddings every year. You can see our Berkshire Wedding Collective profile page HERE.


The Berkshire Wedding Collective was founded by Tara of Tara Consolati, marketing + pr. The Collective  is a carefully curated collection of only the finest wedding professionals serving the magnificent Berkshire hills in Western Massachusetts.  It is an exclusive, “by invitation only” group of businesses that Tara trusts and respects. Truly the best of the best!  As Tara puts it, “when it comes to planning your wedding in the Berkshires, second-best just isn’t good enough.” The Collective is the destination wedding resource in the Berkshires–operating as a “Berkshires wedding concierge.”

As Boston wedding videographers, one of the major reasons we enjoy filming wedding is that we get to meet and become friends with so many great families along the way. We love to watch their families evolve and grow through multiple family weddings and then the babies and children that follow. For JPod Productions, family is a key element to what we do.

On July 4th, as we take a break from our hectic wedding schedule, I thought it would be the appropriate time to share our family. Recently, we hired Massachusetts and Cape Cod Photographer Sarah Gallagher Studios to photograph a moment in time in our family’s life. As much as I have taken and will continue to take hundreds of photographs of our family, it was time to put the camera down and turn to a professional for a day. The greatest thing about the experience was becoming the client once again.  It was a humbling experience to feel the joy and satisfaction of capturing a moment in my family’s life as we perused through the dozens of pictures we received. The investment was priceless. It definitely has reinforced why we take so much pride in creating great family and wedding films for our families. So, on this holiday, I share our family because this is what life is all about! And, I think there maybe even a budding Boston wedding videographer in the bunch.

One of the things we always strive to do at JPod Productions is build great relationships with our couples. Our goal is to learn as much as we can about our couples whether they are from Boston, Vermont, Cape Cod or Southern Connecticut. And we are fortunate to learn a lot about their relationships, their families, their lives, and of coarse, their wedding day. Now it’s time to share 10 things about Jamie that you may not have known:

1. I proposed to my wife at sunset in Newport, RI with a chocolate lab puppy wearing a ring around its neck. If you want the longer version, just ask me the next time you see me.

2. I love my coffee. I usually drink a hot cup in the morning and a cup of iced in the afternoon.

3. I’ve played ice hockey since I was 4. I referee and still play on occasion.

4. I am dog-lover at heart. I have had two Labrador Retrievers since college, but am currently waiting for the right time to add another chocolate pup to our family. I do walk my neighbors two chocolates when I get the chance. So, if you are including your pooch in the wedding plans, we are a great fit for you.

5. My primary assistant, Anne, interned with me when I worked at WWLP-TV22 in 2001 and we have been friends ever since. She has been shooting weddings with me for over 6 years now.

6. My favorite foods are seafood and pizza. I have a wicked sweet tooth too. For dessert, I’ll take a chocolate molten cake with vanilla ice cream any day of the week.

7. I have skydived, parasailed and snorkeled. I have never jet-skied or gone down a zip line, but I want to.

8. I completed a Half-Ironman Triathlon (1.2 mi swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run) and two marathons. My training has slowed down since having children…

9. Girls. Girls, Girls. I grew up as a teenager in a house with two sisters and a Mom. Now I have a wife and two daughters.

10. I am the homemade pierogi-maker in my family. I have kept my grandmother’s amazing recipe alive…
