Bill Poznanski attended art courses at Carnegie-Mellon University before graduating with a degree in music at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. This visual and creative background leaves an imprint on all of his video work. Since 1988, Bill has videotaped nearly 2500 weddings. He has shot in every exclusive venue/location in New York City and has worked alongside the elite of Manhattan wedding photographers such as Philippe Cheng, Julie Skarratt, Christian Oth, Karen Hill, Lynn Hughes, T. Lawrence Wheatman, as well as the studios of Sarah Merians and Fred Marcus.
Bill pioneered a New York City shooting style that combines natural and low lighting with compact equipment to yield spectacular motion picture results while keeping a discreet presence at the event. For this reason he has been the videographer of choice for brides whose weddings have been reviewed in Vogue, Town & Country and Martha Stewart Living magazines and the New York Times. These same brides of distinction have requested Bill and his low profile technique when they have had such high profile guests as Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Michael J. Fox, Joan Rivers, Ralph Lauren and Susan Sarandon, to name a few.
Bill's long time love for New Orleans culminated in his purchase of a historic house there in 2001. He is excited about bringing his New York City wedding video background and expertise to the New Orleans bridal market.
