Best wedding video makers ?

Can anyone suggest US wedding video makers who they regard as leaders in the field ? I am interested in seeing if there is a definable US wedding video style compared with the UK style with which I am more familiar. I am also hoping to add extra vitality to my own productions and have already enjoyed and admired a couple of clips by Glen Elliott - but that's about it.

Hello Mike. I was unnaware there was such a cultural difference in Wedding/Event Videography from the UK and the US. I recently became the topic of conversation on a UK videography forum in which the members went on for pages about how they didn't like my style and how it was over the top.

What is the UK style of wedding videography? I see so much diversity in American Videographers' work I'd think it would cover the entire gammut.

Anyway visit the link in my signature. All the producers of the training material are revered as some of the best in the industry in the US and abroad. They are products that will not only give you examples of their work but also take the time to describe pre/post productions workflow/techniques etc. I think you'll find a great deal of it very helpful.

Many thanks Glen for making me aware of the helpful list you have compiled. It looks like just the job ! I have a wedding today but I will get back to the forum when I have digested a little of the work of those on your list. I do know the work of Graham Fenton who I was acquainted with from wedding exhibitions in Manchester and through the IOV. His untimely death saddened his many friends and admirers in the business.
