Before I head out for the day to start (yes, start) my Christmas shopping, I wanted to begin our Holiday Film Fest! Over the next two weeks, we’re going to be bringing you wedding film after wedding film to drool and envy over … to make you get serious about all the different styles of film making choices that are “out there” and to simply remind you what this whole glorious business is all about!
Our LBB cinematographers have been sorely under-represented on the LBB blog … something we really hope to change in 2010. And so, during the next couple of weeks, we are going to bombard you with wedding highlights and same day edits from MANY of our fabulous cinematographers. All of the films will be under (or around) 5 minutes, so you KNOW you have time to watch! Just remember that when watching video playbacks, it works best if you first press play, then press pause and allow the video to load in the background. You’ll enjoy a much smoother playback experience:)
We also encourage you to leave comments for these fine folks that provide wedding memories in amazing styles and forever cherished detail!
And so … our first flick for your viewing pleasure is from Jason at Boston Wedding Films …
from Jason …
We had the pleasure of being introduced to this incredible couple through Francie and Linnea of Tangorra Wedding Planning. Like many of our clients, Kelley & Jim’s initial thoughts were that video was not a priority. They had also shared common concerns about obtrusiveness i.e. cameras, microphones and lights. Shortly into our conversations Kelley recognized that Boston Wedding Films cinematography is all about working in and maintaining “a natural space,” ensuring everyone around us is comfortable. We filmed at several locations including the hotel, church and of course a visit to the beach.
While the weather was a moving target, Kelley and Jim were determined to stay the course and just enjoy this amazing moment. We had the pleasure of filming with photographer Eric Barry for the first time. Suzanne Lowell and crew worked their magic to set the mood, and accent the wonderful floral design from Spruce Floral. The day was picture perfect in every sense. Kelley & Jim seemed to have all the people that really mattered to them. The love, stories, toasts and celebrations were wonderfully overwhelming. This was the first wedding we have filmed where a RUSH song was played. The night ended to a heartfelt slow dance to “Georgia”, the location of their new home. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room (yes even me…).
While I enjoy the film, it isn’t the images that put a smile on my face. It’s the wonderful relationship we have with Kelley & Jim, their family, and the importance they placed on having us produce their wedding film. What more can a Wedding Filmmaker ask for…
