“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”
- Irving Penn
Who We Are
Ballantyne Media is a husband and wife team specializing in photography, cinematography, and design.
Ethan & Bethany Ballantyne
Lancaster, PA is where we call home. We love our little town and all that it has to offer. A quick walk around downtown and you'll find several amazing coffee shops and even more delicious restaurants that we frequent often. The two of us met in college near Philadelphia and ever since we got married, we have spent so much time together - behind the camera lens!

We have been given the privilege to work with some amazing clients. Each and every project is a new adventure. Our style is not based upon the experience of the people behind the camera, it really comes from the unique subjects on the other side.
We love to be there to capture all of life's moments.
Our clients range from families and small businesses to weddings and engagements.
Here's a peek into some of what we offer!
We specialize in wedding cinematography. Wedding films are a great way to relive your celebration!
We have enjoyed working with these wonderful couples and are always eager to meet new couples to film their special day. In need of a wedding video? Let's chat!

Contract And Deposit
Protecting our business and protecting our clients are very important to us. In order to make things run smoothly, we have created a contract that everyone benefits from. Our contract is emailed to you once you decide to book with us. You will find a section to fill in information about your wedding day. A 50% deposit is required upon return of the signed contract.
Once the big day arrives, we hope that you can sit back at relax - let us do the work! We show up 15 to 30 minutes prior to our contracted start time. This allows us to get familiar with the venue and set up our gear. During the pre-ceremony time, we like to stay with the bride and groom and capture those detail shots while the bridal party gets ready. During the ceremony, all eyes are on the bride (and maybe sometimes on the groom). It may be obvious, but we tend to keep our cameras pointed at the couple during the entire ceremony. From that point on we stick to your schedule and just keep shooting until our time is over.
Our work takes 8 to 10 weeks to process, edit, and prepare for your viewing pleasure. During this time we like to stay in contact with you about our progress. We even share teasers of the final product during this time. Once our editing is done, we make our videos and photos available online right away (no sense in making you wait any longer). You will also receive a gift in the mail that includes a thumb drive with your video or photos.
