+About Us

The most important wedding to us...
is your wedding!

Violet and Iris Cinematography is a Long Island based photography/cinematography business. We have worked in the photo/video production business since 2013. Frequent wedding video requests outside of our commercial work inspired us to create a team that is entirely focused on beautifully telling each couple’s story.

Violet & Iris believe there is no “budget” bride, only smart and selective brides. The cost of wedding photography and cinematography is often opaque: over-priced while under delivering. Our featured wedding programs at every price point are produced to the same professional level, every nuance and detail. We promise to deliver true value for the trust you place in us on your most important day.

Samantha began studying photography during her time as an undergraduate student at Stony Brook University. She has been able to apply her talent and attention to detail, lighting, and aesthetic to not only the still image, but the moving image as well. Her calming nature has made the oft stressful time leading up to the ceremony a time of joy and fun which makes for great cinematic moments. Her experience working with brides and professional models has made her the perfect fit as photographer/creative director for Violet and Iris. Her full portfolio can be seen here.

+ Client Love

"Violet and Iris was the perfect choice for us when looking for a wedding videographer. Many videographers were not transparent with their pricing, and when they were, it was prohibitively expensive and you didn't get much for those prices either. Andrew and Samantha were very easy to work with; we were able to discuss all the details of my wedding day ahead of time so they knew exactly what I wanted. Our video turned out better than I could have imagined- it looked like a movie! Even the packaging we purchased was beautiful, we chose to get the custom engraved thumb drive and box. I can't say enough great things about Violet and Iris, I would highly recommend to any bride!"
