Posted by Marion Abrams on Tuesday, March 22, 2011,

March 22nd was another snowy day in what has been a very snowy winter in Vermont.  But inside the Inn at the Round Barn Farm it was warm and colorful as an amazing array of wedding professionals gathered for a Prepare to Wed photo shoot.  Here is just a tiny taste of what went on.

Capturing Love - making a wedding video

Posted by Marion Abrams on Friday, December 3, 2010,
There are many ways to "capture" love.  It's what I'm hired to do as wedding videographer or filmer.  It's what wedding photographers do on every job. 

My niece was married this summer and wrote for A Practical Wedding about the thought and compromise that made her wedding so personal and so meaningful.  I had the privilege of creating a video for her, and attempting to capture the feelings of love expressed not only between her and and her husband, but among the whole community of friends and...

A fall wedding snapshot on Super 8 film

Posted by Marion Abrams on Thursday, November 18, 2010,

The groom is a film maker who knew just what he wanted.  He asked us to shoot just a few moments in Super 8 Film that he would use along with video shot by Open Eye Media of New York to create the final video.

It was a treat to shoot Super 8 Film and create a dreamy home movie feel.  Here is one minute of the footage we captured.

Location: The Inn at the Round Barn
Film: Tweed River Video

The power of video

Posted by Marion Abrams on Monday, November 1, 2010,
I just finished editing this wedding for a couple that were married in August at Pittsfield Vermont's beautiful Riverside Farm.  Watch this 3 minute preview, the last shot is of the bride walking down the aisle hand in hand with her father toward her new life.  This short piece of video (about :10 seconds of the brides walk) conveys the anticipation, nervousness, fatherly love, and joy like no other medium can.

Enjoy.

Christine & Tim's Vermont Wedding

Posted by Marion Abrams on Thursday, October 7, 2010,
What the bride said:

"Tweed River Video captured our day perfectly. We loved working with their team and couldn't have been happier! To all you brides out there who are considering not doing a video, do a video with Tweed River Video, they truly capture the feeling and essence of your day which photography just can not do! Thank you for letting me re live our wedding every day!"



 

 

This couple was such a pleasure to work with.  They were enjoying the heck out of the day, and so were natural an...

My Niece's Wedding

Posted by Marion Abrams on Thursday, September 23, 2010,
 


 I had the pleasure of making a video of my niece's wedding last week.  She had a beautiful, small ceremony with just immediate family.  I edited the video and she screened it at the Saturday night party.

Of course it was a pleasure because I had the chance to spend time with family.  But here are some of the other things I think she did right:
 

-  She and Eric asked "why" with each decision they made to make sure they were adding meaning, not just work.
 
- They kept me informed (for example - ...

:30 seconds with a wedding photographer

Posted by Marion Abrams on Wednesday, April 28, 2010,
Do you think you can get a sense of someone's personality in :30 seconds?  You won't get to know everything a bout them, but I think you get a sense of who they are. 

Here is the second in my series of :30 second photographer profiles.  This one follows dynamic photographer J.P. Elario as he shoots for Well Wed's Vermont Vows Magazine.  We spent the day shooting gowns for the Spring / Summer issue at the Tundbridge World's fair.  If you search back to my first blog post, you can watch Barrie ...

Emmy nominated .... no, really.

Posted by Marion Abrams on Monday, April 26, 2010,
I'm thrilled to begin this spring  with a new weapon in my battle against the stereotype of the cheesy wedding video.  I take only a limited number of wedding projects each summer so that I can remain fresh, attentive and enthusiastic with each couple, the rest of the time I work on other broadcast and corporate projects.  This spring my videography and editing work on one of those (Vermont Spotlight) was nominated for the New England Emmy awards.

About Me


I studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Film at NYU, then started a career in documentary filmmaking in New York City. I soon realized the city life was not for me. After time in Aspen and in Rockport Maine I came to Vermont for a seasonal television job in the ski industry and never left. I have run my own video production business, Madmotion, llc., since 1996. I started Tweed River Video specifically for wedding video work in 2003. In addition to weddings I continue to work in documentary, commercial and sports video production and design.
