Fantasy Wedding

TYLER and EMILY
Tyler and Emily hired photographers to take lovely traditional photos documenting the big event; however, Emily wanted me to do some 'high fashion' and 'fantasy' type shots just for fun.  This was taken before the wedding in the meadow next to my home.  The wedding day was perfect in every way.  I was especially impressed with the photographers they chose - a husband and wife team.  She shot stills and he shot video.  The ceremony was from 3:00p to about 4:30p.  Right after, the photographers took pictures out and around the temple until about 10 minutes before the reception/dinner/dancing that started at 6:00p.  As part of the 'entertainment',  they set up a large screen and played a beautiful video that the videographer had just taken 15 minutes earlier.   I was amazed he could put this together on the spot and that fast.  He said it was a short sneak peak at what the final one will be.  If you want a little romance today,  HERE you go!  (P.S.  I don't know if it is because it is HD or what, but you have to start the video,  then pause it, and let it 'render' or 'load' or do whatever it does for a few minutes.  Then hit the start arrow again, and it should play without stopping.)

This sepia toned photo is beautiful! I also find it unusual. What a wonderful wedding, I can't believe how he made a video in time to show everyone! This video kept quitting after 19 seconds! But I did get to see the big romantic swoop and kiss! i'll try it again this evening, maybe it will run later.

It was a beautiful reception! During the reception I was thinking the same thing and impressed that the videographer put together that beautiful video so quickly!

the video is breathtaking, the temple is spectacular. the man who did this is very, very talented. But the bride and groom are a perfect couple, she is beautiful, he is handsome and the video of them is very touching to the heart. loved the music also. I like her shoes and really, really like the stroll showing close up of shoes. never seen one to compare. I wish them lives full of happiness.

Karen,
Really enjoyed that video, he did a great job with the super wide angle lens and the motion. He obviously had one of those camera stabilizer units. Very smart of you not to try to be the photographer.

I sent a reply to Scott's comment via email, but thought everyone else might like the same info. I guess I was so surprised at how lovely the video was because he just didn’t seem to take much time or effort while he was shooting. He had a fairly large, regular video camera. It was on about a 3 foot pole. He hand held it in one hand, usually at about waist or knee level, and literally ran circles around Tyler and Emily while shooting. He must have perfected how to run and hold that camera without jerks. Pretty impressive!
