New Years

My good friend Carl has a cabin in southern Ohio that is over a 100 years old. It was the perfect place to spend New Years eve. A bunch of friends. No TV. Games. Drinks. Laughs. And some wood chopping.

This is the first video I ever made with my 5D MkII. I just shot a lot of random stuff. When I got home and saw the footage, I thought it would be cool to edit a video to ‘Big Rock Candy Mountain’… which I had heard on ‘Oh Brother Where Art Thou’

Although the footage isn’t a little shaky… and rather random… I think the fun of the day comes across really well.

A side note on the song: I love the fact that even though he slips and says ‘Blig Rock’ at around :50…. it still made the final recording! haha… these days they spend days working on one song. This guy sits down, records the song… screws up one little part and they say… ‘that’ll work!’

What an amazing day in Cincinnati. Note to brides wanting to have an outdoor wedding in Ohio in late September... if it ends up being sunny it will be one of the nicest days of the year. This day was absolutely perfect. Ault Park is a fabulous location to have a wedding. Jessica and Jacob are two class people with huge hearts. Their love for each other is evident, as is their love for God and his providence. This film was fairly easy to edit due to the fact that I had so much footage to work with. Some of the most beautiful moments to date were captured on this day. I love the shots at the end of everyone dancing. The sun was just setting ...

Jeremy and Hillary were getting married in Key Largo... "would you be willing to shoot our wedding???" hmmmm, let me think... I guess I could travel down to that dump for a day or two haha What an awesome location for a little get away wedding. Small weddings like this are great because they really bring family together, and it feels all the more special. On a beach.... in June... in record high heat (yeah, record highs for Florida... you know thats GOT to be hot!!!) they got married. I was also given the task of shooting a video for this wedding that they could play at the reception back in Ohio to show their guests what it was like. I h ...
