Most wedding videographers who claim to be shooting wedding cinematography are actually shooting journalism and, by the way, there’s nothing wrong with that, nothing wrong with being inventive and spontaneous. A cinematographer, however,  is obligated to work within a pre-determined design, and he/she usually follows a themic preset which typically requires orchestrating light both natural using tools such as silks and reflectors, and artificial using powerful lights to aid in the telling of a designed story. For most weddings such artistry is too time-consuming, too costly.  The first video below that I shot was scripted but I did not creatively orchestrate light.  

In the second scripted wedding film (below) I did orchestrate light and shadow.  It’s defintely cinematic.
