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!’

Fun of SAM
Having dogs is like having children. The second one never gets as much attention as the first one. You have gone overboard with the first one and by the time the second one comes along you no longer feel like documenting everything. I didn't want that to happen to Samson. Although Mc, our frist ridgeback, naturally ends up in front of the camera more due to his persona and expressive eyes, Samson definitely has a personality of his own, which is worth capturing. In this video you will see Sam the very first time we saw him, his first day at our house, Mc's impression of the new guy and also wondering if he is going to stay. The second half ...
Brandi + Josh
Had so much fun with these two! As you will soon see... their whole group was an absolute blast to hang out with. After the ceremony we headed to 'The Shoe' for some shots and after that they took a little break at a long standing popular bar at OSU, the Varsity Club, to get a drink and have a few nice toasts. The reception at the Columbus Athenaeum was beautiful. The toasts were really moving on one hand, and hilarious on the other... thanks to Josh's brothers raking him over the coals. Looking forward to seeing what these two do in the future! Congratulations! Songs: The Album Leaf: 'The Light' itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-light/id18 ...

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 ...
