Videography & Photography

Iowa Elite Events offers a cinematic documentary style video.  Our approach is to create you a beautiful video that is in chronological order of your day's events.  You may view samples of our creations below.   With our cinematic style film, we capture every moment of your wedding, grasping the small details that you might have missed during your busy day.  Our wedding films tell the story of your day, with  appropriate sound bites of you and your guests, infused into the final film, creating a dramatic recreation of the events throughout your special day.  Every element of your day is blended into an amazing short film, filled with the emotion, sounds and ambiance that you can relive forever.  

Videography is truly different from photography of your wedding.  Our approach is that there is absolutely no script or special poses required.  As your videographer  we blend into your event as best we can.  We want you to pretend that we are not even there.  Our goal is to obtain a spontaneous observation of your special day and create  a masterpiece that you can appreciate the rest of your life.  

Loren Gingerich is our lead videographer/photographer and producer, at Iowa Elite Events.  Loren studied photography and marketing at University of Iowa and Kirkwood Community College.  He is well versed in electronics and very fluent with Adobe and Pinnacle editing software, which is how we create your memories.  Jake Gingerich is our second videographer/photographer and also drone pilot.    Jake studied photography through Kirkwood Community College and has been mentored by Loren for the past five years.  Jake is our tech and mechanical wiz kid and is just an all around good guy!
