Its been a really long time since I’ve sat down and written anything from projects over the past year. Its probably about time I get caught up (although I’m still swamped with more editing work then I know what to do with) In retrospect looking back at Gordon and Lauren’s wedding the first thing that immediately jumps into my head was just how worried I was that their video wasn’t going to be any good. I really liked this couple and I really wanted to do a great job for them. It was a terribly rainy day in September and as a result they had to ditch their entire Photoshoot. My productions were still pretty fragile at this point in time – and losing such a significant portion of the day had the ability to potentially derail the entire project. But once I got the footage I realized that it wasn’t going to be as big of a deal as I had originally made it out to be. I was getting better. As a shooter, in that I was acquiring more useable footage from places that didn’t normally provide me with many opportunities previously.
Their speeches might be the best to date I’ve experienced as a Wedding Videographer. Funny, Emotional, Articulate – it was becoming more and more obvious to me that the things that really mattered in creating a great wedding video – weren’t the visual elements I had always relyed on – pretty photo poses, multiple angles of makeup being applied etc. but instead they were the foundation – Great speeches. Great Ceremony coverage. Everything else was beginning to feel empty. It was real turning point in my aesthetic.
