Harlan Kramer Films is a documentary wedding videographer in the Northern New Jersey area. This videographer, Harlan Kramer, believes in capturing every moment for a couple’s wedding, even if it means staying late or going out of his way. He develops a relationship with couples before the wedding to find out exactly what they're looking for, because he knows that there is only one opportunity to get the perfect shot on the big day. There’s no staging of special moments, and this videographer aims to be as unobtrusive as possible, leaving couples with a wedding video they can cherish their entire lifetime.
Harlan Kramer had his hands on his first camera at age seven, right before he dropped it on the ground, thinking it would bounce. Later in life, working as a freelancer, he found the constraints of contracts unreasonable. Harlan didn't believe in leaving a wedding just because his time was up, especially when there were still moments to capture on film. He began Harlan Kramer Films to break that pattern in his work, now never missing a moment from a couple’s big day.
In the spirit of capturing every moment for a couple, this videographer films the rehearsal dinner, pre-ceremony, ceremony and reception festivities. Harlan offers the following video services for a wedding:

High Quality, Non Invasive, Down to Earth Videographer
Our photographer, Gary Flom, recommended Harlan to me as a videographer and I am so beyond glad he did. I will never forget Gary showing me photos of videographers at weddings completely blocking important moments and being very invasive. Something I never really thought about! Gary recommended Harlan, saying that they worked well together and he was very noninvasive. Well, I am SO THRILLED we decided to book with him. Harlan was always quick to respond and very flexible. With Covid times, plans changed A LOT. Harlan never had an issue and was always willing to accommodate the changes. He truly made it a breeze. One of my favorite moments of our wedding day was actually looking over Brooklake Country Club in the morning and just chatting with Harlan. He was one of the first vendors to arrive and he was so down to earth and genuine. Even though Harlan and I had not met until the day of the wedding, he took the time to really get to know my husband and me as a couple. That really meant so much to me. As for invasive? Harlan was not! I mean this in the best way possible, but you barely knew he was there! When we saw our highlight reel, we were beyond happy. Harlan had our highlight reel to us in less than a week from the wedding and it was absolutely perfect. He was able to capture each small detail and moment that made the day so intimate and special, so much so that we had people reaching out to us telling us that the video made them cry! I am truly blown away by Harlan’s performance. I highly HIGHLY recommend him. Book him now! I promise you will not regret it!Sent on 11/13/2020

Harlan is amazing!
From start to finish, Harlan was the most AMAZING videographer for our wedding day. He was flexible, understanding, and reassuring when we had to postpone our wedding celebration from April to August. He truly captured every single special moment of our day, and you would not even know he was there. He arrived early at the start of the day just to have more time to capture all that he needed to. We received our highlight film in less than one week and when we watched it, our jaws were dropped. It had all of our family and friends in tears. We cannot wait to see the fully edited version of our day. He is extremely talented and he does not miss any special moment. I would highly recommend Harlan to anyone. We can't wait to rewatch our special day forever!Sent on 08/10/2020

For anyone questioning whether or not to get a videographer, look no further than Harlan. He was not invasive (I hardly noticed him or his equipment!), and captured every important detail.
Harlan's work was so creative; we highly recommend his work! He blended seamlessly with our venue and the wedding day.
Harlan works hard at every wedding to capture weddings in a romantic, elegant way. He goes above and beyond to catch every little detail in a most artful way.
