Videographer: Kari Ries
By the time I got married in 1994, I had sat through so many three-hour raw footage marathons of friends’ ‘home grown’ wedding videos that I had had enough. My wedding video was going to be fun and watchable! I edited it myself, got an enthusiastic response, and so a business began… A similar thing happened when Lilly, my first daughter, was born. I captured her first laugh, first steps, and first birthday; edited the footage neatly with music, and Presto! A video that actually makes it to the DVD player over and over, not a bunch of tapes that live in a closet or files that never leave the computer. Capturing those family moments on video, selecting the perfect songs and editing them together for families to enjoy is what I love to do!
While raising my family in Bucks County, I spent 13 years as a camerawoman at NBC10 in Philadelphia– a non-stop, adventure-a-day race that I grew to love somehow. One day I would be at (then) Mayor Rendell’s press conference; the next, videotaping the Philadelphia skyline at sunset from a helicopter; the next, interviewing Carlos, who couldn’t pay his heating bill… I learned everyone has a story to tell. From behind my videocamera, I captured these stories in creative and compelling ways.
My experience as a news videographer, a bride, soccer coach and a mom give me a unique perspective on capturing moments and creating memories. I’m intuitive and unobtrusive. And I’m personally involved with each step: the filmmaking, the editing, music selection, right down to the DVD cover design. I love the whole process. I still get giddy when people tell me, “your video made me cry!” I look forward to helping you tell your story.
