Happy Thanksgiving!! We are so thankful for the wonderful couples that we have the honor of photographing and truly thankful to be able to tell their stories. Today, we are so excited to share Jill and Gary’s love story. Their interview was so real and genuine and you can hear their love for each other in their voices. They are two loving and thoughtful people and we are so glad they found each other.
When we interviewed Tommy and Kristin, we were reminded how much we love what we do. It allows us to document something so real and authentic. We are there to not only to document love but also to tell the story of love. We often tell couples to come to the interview with tissues because most couples end up shedding a few tears in the process. In Kristin and Tommy’s case, we didn’t even have to ask questions before the tears started flowing. We knew it was going to be a great interview – and it was. They were so honest and real and we loved getting to know them on a deeper level. We hope their love for each other inspires other couples to wait for their perfect match.
Here is the wedding film from Alycia and Mike’s beautiful fall wedding. The film tells their love story and the video shows how amazing their whole day was. I love when you hear Alycia’s dad speak about promising that she would find the perfect man…and she did. Here are some images from their wedding.
Every time I edit a wedding film I am reminded how powerful audio truly is. Hearing Leslie’s mom give her speech and say “we love you little girl” as she tears up gets me every time I hear it. Obviously we think photos are strong conveyers of emotion and meaning but when you hear the words of a loved one, it brings you back to that exact moment. In grad school one of our professors always said, “You remember 1/3 of what you read, 1/2 of what people tell you, but 100 percent of what you feel.” Our hope is that Leslie and Lane remember these precious moments for the rest of their lives. Here is their wedding film.
We had so much fun producing this wedding film back in the fall.
After seeing this film again I am reminded of how important great audio is for a great wedding film. There is something about audio from a wedding that is so telling and allows you to go back to that day so vividly. From the vows to getting ready, its the sniffles and pauses that bring you back to that moment. I love hearing the pause when Matt is saying his vows. You can almost feel the tear stream down his face.
Here are some photos from their wedding in October.
We realized we had not posted some of our most recent wedding films and thought you might be interested in seeing them. Here is the film from Hillary and Brian’s wedding in Corolla. Here are some photos of their wedding and The LOVE Booth just in case you missed them the first time.
We savor photographing weddings like these because it allows us to implement all of our photo and cinematic skills to tell a timeless love story. It also allowed us to use an array of our gear. In the film, we were able to incorporate shots with the steadicam, dolly, a small jib and a video time-lapse of the dramatic weather before the start of the ceremony. We hope this film will be shown for generations to come.
