Cape May Joy on the Beach

Experiencing Joy on the beach would make anyone’s day. Taking Joy to the beach is something I get to do almost every day.

When my friend Jesse came up with the idea of a portrait video memoir–I was all in. Think super 8 movies meets high-tech. Jesse is a gifted videographer.
I first met Jesse when a group of young people were kicking a soccer ball down the Washington Street mall. It may have been the kind of “hey, what are you kids doing? exchange.”

About a year or so later while I was president of the Chamber of Commerce, I discovered a video that at the time, I thought was a fantastic representation of cool Cape May. A young person kicking a soccer ball in a variety of iconic image areas. The music was upbeat and inspirational.

The video was made by one of those kids from the mall–Jesse Lambert. To see that amazing video click here:

Jesse would eventually create Lambert Productions.

This summer, Jesse is offering a new service to both Cape May locals and visitors that wish to capture and create a special kind of keepsake. A couple of minutes of video, professionally shot and edited by Jesse that will be a memoir to last a lifetime.

Jesse’s time slots are filling up fast. He is willing to film families, couples and even family pets like Joy. Jesse is a perfectionist. He looks for the right settings. He will want the right light and will bring the best equipment to make the highest quality video.

The whole experience is actually quite fun. Usually shooting video for a couple of hours to boil down to one and a half to two minutes. You can see the rest of Jesse’s videos on his Facebook page, or his website. You can reach him by phone at 609.602.8309

Tell Jesse that Joy sent you!!
