GENERATIONS cinemastories



Since 2004, husband/wife duo, Naomi Raiselle and Jack Brotman, have been producing videos together. Starting with their filming the first same sex wedding in Boston, the team has produced original wedding films and love stories; videos of mitzvahs and other social events; non-profit fundraising videos; and marketing/branding corporate videos. Generations was the very first wedding videography studio to be honored with the prestigious “Best of Boston” award, given by Boston Magazine.

Strong believers in the first person narrative, Naomi and Jack are experienced interviewers who elicit meaningful stories from each and every one of their clients.

Naomi Raiselle


All our weddings are filmed and edited by GENERATIONS cinemastories partners, Naomi Raiselle and Jack Brotman
All our wedding film packages include the entire ceremony, all toasts and special dances, unedited.
The style of each video is dictated by the couple's style. We are devoted to the first person narrative - the way in which the couple and the important people get to reflect on love, marriage, love story, etc. On the wedding day, we will sometimes spend casual time with the couple and ask them about their love story. We think that the "backstory" is as important as the main events of the day. Sometimes parents or grandparents have something special to say to the couple and if so, we want to include it.
When planning your wedding budget, you should check out some wedding films and the companies that produced them, and get a sense of their pricing. Often couples trust various wedding sites to tell them what they should plan to spend, and often those sites are less than accurate. People who film lots of weddings, often outsource their editing. They also tend to have a template for the film - so the film might start with a best man's toast, then go to the bride getting her makeup done, etc. Some of us film fewer weddings so that we can give each couple and each wedding film a lot of our time and creativity. In most large city markets, an inexpensive wedding video can be had for under $2000. A moderately priced wedding video might be between $2000.-$3500. A midrange wedding film would be somewhere between $3500. - $7000. and a high end wedding film would be anywhere from $7000.- $15,000. Most of our wedding films are in the mid-range.
I (Naomi) am also a couples' counselor; a wedding celebrant; a stylist and a film maker. It's the unique nature of love that draws me to this work - and frankly, I love weddings and often find myself crying at ceremonies! It's also a way to celebrate my own marriage to my life/work partner, Jack!
