Fen Video Production is simply a one person company.

Hello! My name is Fen, nice to meet you online! I’m a freelance cinematographer and editor. I shoot about 30 to 40 weddings a year and edit everything myself. (No worries, I have lots of associates in this field and we back each other up at time of emergency.)

I have a pretty relaxed life because I still have a ton of time to kill after editing the wedding videos. (Ha!) In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. I shoot and edit 2 to 3 indie short films a year. I like to read fictions, watch TV and movies. I also dig TV courses about history and languages. I enjoy writing poetry and fictions sometimes; you can read them here: https://xiaofenzhangpoetry.wordpress.com/poems/

Since I started making wedding videos in 2012, I’ve been fortunate to document all types of weddings – some are high budget in fancy places and some are low budget in family backyards; sometimes in historical cathedrals, sometimes in tranquil mosques or mysterious Hindu temples, or very often in a barn or deep garden; sometimes for same sex couples and sometimes for straight couples. I charge the same price, immerse myself in people’s magic day, and 100% of the couples and families are sweet – it’s true – I’m lucky! I’ve never met a bridezilla.

I shoot and edit 100% with journalistic approach. The video is the ultimate re-live-the-day experience, with real-time audio and naturally captured visuals. “The video’s got stuff you didn’t think you need but actually do” – one day I ran into a bride I worked with the previous year because I was shooting her cousin’s wedding and that’s what she told me. I think she really said it for me. I do shoot a lot, a lot of times those little things that’s not expected. I once was at a beach wedding and captured with my zoom lens the moment of an old gentleman, one of the guests, by the look must be close to 90 years old – he leaned on the railing and stared deeply into the sunset-painted ocean. It was truly a quintessential movie moment, and I don’t even know his relation with the couple… I wonder what the couple might feel, watching this shot in their long version wedding video many years from now.

Here is to summarize the above – yes I make long version chronological wedding video, normally 2 to 3 hour long, the kind your parents might have from their wedding in the 80s or 90s, of course with modern cinema camera and guidance of indie film rules of cinematography – a total retro blasted wedding video revival!

If you think this might be what you’re looking for, shoot me an email and I’ll send you some of these long version samples. They are not on my website since they are password-protected.

I also make short edits – recap highlights and documentary-style short films. They are add-ons and the samples are on the website.

Thank you for your time reading about me and I hope to hear from you!
