Weddings are crazy. Crazy fun, crazy stressful & crazy beautiful... especially with this couple. I first met Laura in Austin to photograph her in her wedding dress. I enjoy being able to be able to take a few photos before the wedding because we then print that photo up and place it at the entrance of the reception & everyone seemed to love the photo.
Most people know ColoredLion.com for our photography but we actually also do quite a bit of video: music videos, commercials and, of course, wedding video. I brought a crew of 5 people (4 plus me) to make sure we captured every angle of Laura and Ryan's special day. For wedding videos I like to more make them like a movie trailer. Lots of very cool shots cut to music that give it that high-end movie like feel.
The venue was Ashton Gardens in Dallas and was a wonderful place... except there were a ton of windows and the wedding was at night. The reason why windows can be tough is when you use flash it can bounce off the windows and create a glare. Luckily I had a lighting expert with me, William McNeil, and he was really able to bring the vibrance I wanted to the photos. We had a ton of fun and really enjoyed being apart of Laura and Ryan's special day -- I really hope everyone enjoys the video as much as I do.
