Andrea and Nick – Wedding Film

What a beautiful day. What a beautiful couple. What a beautiful way to celebrate their marriage. I had a lot of fun hanging out with these two… they are a special couple. I can only wish them the best!

This is the second wedding film I shot this year. One of the things I love about weddings is that every one, although consisting of the same components in the same basic timeline, ends up being different. With photos that doesn’t change my job too much. However, with motion, it opens the door for a multitude of directions to take when editing. You can elicit a different emotion depending on what you choose to keep in and leave out. The music can make you feel happy, or sad. You gan go in many routes from the same footage.

Finding that route is the hard part.

I would say I am not as confident editing as I am with shooting, but feel I am slowly learning how to edit in a way that is best for me. Getting the music, timing, flow, and emotion of the video locked in is a really hard thing to do. I don’t think it will ever become easy. But, I do feel that it can become easier.

Wedding Dress: Since so many brides have been asking about the dress. It is Blue by Enzoani and the dress style was called the Dabra. Hope this helps!!!

Awesome film. I'm just starting out, can I ask how you appear to keep the camera so stable. Monopod, tripod, shoulder rig? And for focus, external monitor?

Lauren and Eric – Perrysburg
It was a cold Sunday morning. The thermometer read 28 degrees. But, after factoring in wind chill, snow chill, river chill, and cloudy chill it felt more like -28 degrees. The cold air did not freeze the hearts of all of those at this intimate ceremony and brunch. This was a very low key wedding, held in an amazing apartment living room in downtown Perrysburg. About 20 people came to share the moments with Eric and Lauren. It was a great setting for these two to seal the deal. We were able to slip outside twice for some photos. The ladies were wonderful and did not complain as much as they should have with their shoulders bare and all. Finger ...
Lauren + Ryan
Rarely do you meet a couple that has such an impact on you. From the moment I met Ryan and Lauren, I knew they were truly special souls. During his interview, Ryan said quite possibly the nicest things I have ever heard. Any girl would die to have their boyfriend or husband say these things about them; and yet if they did, it would still seem forced. When Ryan talks like this, he means it, and you know he means it. It's genuine. Lauren has a huge heart and her love for Ryan is as clear as day. You will also quickly learn of Lauren's love for Jesus. You soon realize that she lives this life of love day in and day out. I am honored to have had ...
Zac and Kristin
Zac and Kristin were not caught up in all the little things that can lead people astray on the day of the wedding. They were all about the people, the fun, and the food. This attitude led to a very fun evening, with lots of laughter... and lots of great food (good work Zac). They were married at Smith Bros., which is now Dock 580, and were able to do everything right there. The ceremony and the reception. This helps keep everything intimate because you don't have people wandering off. Everyone is right there the whole time. I had a lot of fun with Zac and Kristin, and come to find out, they are neighbors of mine! ...
