Coming soon in 2014. I had the privilege to film a Marine and his wife get married. Not only that, but the bride's mother delivered our baby 4 months ago today! So in honor of the holidays, I wanted to share a glimpse at this beautiful couple's day. I can't cut the entirety yet, because I will be shooting more of them out on the west coast where they will live happily ever after, so STAY TUNED!
This is from a WW2 Reinactment at the Fort Worth Alliance Airshow. We challenged ourselves to shoot cinema ENG style. No direction, no re-dos, no 2nd takes. Get it in one or don't get it at all. This was fun. I want to shoot one where I can direct. If you know someone doing a WW2 reinactment with live ordinance, message me at email@example.com
So yes, another pretty flying short at the park. This time with stabilization and a new drone flying around. This was shot with the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition, the DJI FW550, using the Zenmuse h3-2d gimbal.

My very good friend Dara Maclean got married to Donnie Petty a while back out at a beautiful ranch in Sherman, TX. Upon my arrival there, I instantly realized why she fell in love with this place. It was PERFECT. I mean, down to the perfect little white chapel with a working bell tower, to the sprawling Texas Ranch where she was able to take a break from work to relax with her friends under the Texas Stars for a couple of days leading up to the big event.
The wedding was perfect, and even though everyone was packed into this quaint chapel, nobody seemed concerned. They were ecstatic that they were witnessing love set to motion, and that they would bear witness to two families joining together as one under Holy Matrimony. Cody Carnes sang a rendition of Dave Barnes' "On a night like this" as the service began, and as I watched through the lens of my camera, a truly special moment unfolded before my eyes.
The reception was exactly what you would expect it to be. Especially if you knew Dara. Elegant, but not over the top. Classy, but not black-tie ritzy. Perfect in every way imaginable. Friends and Family posed for polaroid photos in the photo booth, and a beautiful watercolor image of the world hung by the doorway as you walked in, with material detailing Donnie & Dara's heart for reaching out to the world and impacting lives in the name of Christ.
The evening was filled with great speeches, great music, dancing, and finally, chinese lanterns. Myself and the other photographers helped the wedding party assemble these off in the corner while everyone danced the night away, and then walked out under the Sprawling Texas night sky to say goodbye and good luck to the newlywed couple as chinese lanterns were lit and lifted off into the moonlight.
Perfect Wedding? Absolutely. See for yourself!
