My name is Gordon Yurk. I was born and raised in Flint, Michigan and while I spend a lot of my time working in other states and locations throughout the world, my home state is my favorite place to be! I am the Lead Wedding Videographer for every wedding captured by Visual Reflection Wedding Videos because I want to be absolutely certain that every wedding is captured the way it should be. You only get one chance to capture the many, many great moments that happen during the wedding day so I take full responsibility in making sure that we capture everything to the very best of our ability. I'm a very easy person to work with. It takes A LOT to stress me out which allows me to be very flexible when creating a timeline, working around any unforeseen circumstances that may arise and always doing my best to keep everyone around me as calm as I am. This characteristic also allows me to work well with all of your other vendors and to help you and everyone in your wedding party to just relax and have a great time.

et's Have Some Fun
Any talented wedding videographer can create a romantic cinematic wedding film of your wedding but there's so much more to a wedding day than that. You'll see so many of the exact same type of shots in the majority of wedding videos you watch because too many wedding videographers care more about impressing each other than they do creating something that truly represents the wide variety of emotions you experience on your wedding day. That is the most distinguishing feature about the videos we create. While, we craft our videos around the love you share, the fun you have when it's just the two of you as well as the celebration with your family and guests is what really makes each story so unique. So, as you'll notice in the examples above, no two wedding highlight videos are the same. We do our best to customize each wedding video we create to fit the couple we're working with as well as the flow of the wedding day, which will allow you to relive your day the way that it actually happened!
We consider your wedding unique
There's no one size fits all package for wedding videos. Some couples want our Full Video to watch their wedding play like a movie (with credits and outtakes) while other couples are only interested in a Highlight Video and Teaser. Some couples need 2 wedding videographers and other couples only need 1 wedding videographer. For this reason, we prefer to customize every package we offer to fit the type of wedding videography package that you're looking for exactly! If you're looking for a ballpark of what couples spend with us, it's normally between $2,500-$3,500. So, please fill out our contact form with as much information as possible to help us determine a couple options to create wedding videos that will allow you to relive your day forever!
Descriptions for the edited videos we offer:
-Full Length Video **Signature Video**
One of the biggest things that sets us apart from most videographers is that we offer the opportunity to watch all of the events that happen during your wedding day in their entirety in a long-form video that you watch like a movie, complete with a credit roll at the end and outtakes of the most funny candid moments that take place throughout the day. Most current wedding videographers only offer a 20 minute version for their Feature Length Video and a Ceremony Only edit.. Our Full Length Videos are typically 30-60 minutes for 4-5 hours of coverage and 60-120 minutes for 6-8 hours of coverage. The amount of time varies depending on the length of your ceremony, speeches and other main events because you'll be watching them in their entirety, edited to give you the best shots from two or more camera angles. The other portions of the day (ie. Getting Ready, Photo Session, Decorations, Mingling, Open Dancefloor, etc..) are edited into montages throughout the video and set to a soundtrack of your choice. Our Full Videos are more personal, which is why we don't share them publicly. So, contact us to see a sample of these videos.
Highlight videos are designed to be shared with your family and friends. You and maybe your immediate family are the only ones that might want to sit through the whole Feature Length Video. So, the Highlight Video is a very condensed version of the Full Length Video with a duration of 5-10 minutes and is crafted to tell a short story about the most important day of your life. The Highlight Video is delivered through a link online that will allow you to download, watch and share it. To help make your story more compelling and personal, we suggest that you write your own vows or letters to each other. We do understand that some people are more private and/or too shy to do something like that so if you're not comfortable with writing something don't worry, we will still be able to tell your story by using great music and all of the special moments you shared with each other and your guests on your wedding day. We use Vimeo and Mediazilla to host our Highlight Videos and with most video hosting websites, it is illegal to upload videos without a proper music license. To stay compliant, we pick the music used for the Highlight Video from a few different music libraries based on the style of music you selected to be used during your wedding day and the music you choose for your Full Length Video. The cost for licensing the music is included with every package we customize.
-Facebook & Instagram Wedding Teaser
We realize that sharing something quickly, while people are still excited and talking about your wedding, is important. So, we include a 60 second trailer of your wedding day with all of our packages. This video is delivered through Facebook & Instagram within 3 days of the wedding and also included in the final link we send you when all of the videos are complete.
-Ceremony & Speeches/Toasts Videos
We use at least 3 video cameras and 2-3 audio recorders for all wedding ceremonies and at least 2 video cameras and an audio recorder connected to your DJ's soundboard for the speeches/toasts. We deliver the entire ceremony and speeches/toasts and edit them to provide the best shots from the multiple camera angles and sync them with quality sound recording.
Every wedding we capture Includes:
-Minimum of Three Professional Video Cameras
It is essential to have more than one camera angle for the main events on your wedding day! If the view from one camera gets obscured for a moment by a photographer or guest, we always have another angle to work with. We provide 3 camera angles for your ceremony and 2-4 camera angles for all of the other major events that take place on your wedding day. The more footage we have to work with, the better your video will be.
-Audio Recorders with Lapel/Lav Microphones
Clear audio is very important to us and should be to you as well! We provide two audio recorders and lapel mics, which we put on the groom and officiant during the ceremony to ensure that you are able to hear all of the important words spoken during your ceremony. For speeches/toasts during the reception we connect an audio recorder to the DJ's soundboard to make sure that we capture clear audio of anyone who speaks into the microphone.
We use 2 LED panels on stands when the natural light is dim. Both lights are elevated high enough to not shine directly into the eyes of you or your guests and small enough to be discreet. We don't use on-camera lights because they tend to create a spotlight effect and shine directly into the eyes of anyone the camera is pointed at.
-Drone Footage (Weather & Location permitting)
We love to use our drone to capture aerial footage of the venue(s) & the only thing that will prevent us from using it is the weather or a no-fly zone.
