WORDS I LIVE BY
I know exactly what you’re thinking.
You’ve watched wedding film after wedding film, and they’re all. the. bloody. same.
Epic sweeping shots of the dress, shoes, ring, all in slooooow motion and set to a cheesy love ballad.
Then insert couple posed in a loving embrace in the middle of a field, gazes drifting into the sunset.
You’d rather be leo in that bear scene than watch another one of those films.
No gimmicks. Only truth.
Your wedding film isn’t about any other generic couple.
This style and approach for a wedding video certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you’re vibing this then you’ll just want to remember the real stuff too.
I try not to focus on the “things” such as the dress, the shoes, the decorations… they’re trends. And I hate to break it to you, but in 20 years time they’re actually the things you’re probably gonna look back on and wish you could change. Instead I focus on the people. Because in 20 years time what you’ll want is to hear the sound of your grandad’s voice again, to remember the sexy comment your husband whispered in your ear when no one else was listening, and to laugh again at the banter and ridic jokes your mates were cracking all day.
Trends change. Just like fashions and wedding themes, technology, equipment, set up shots and colour filters are trends that I won’t buy in to. I don’t use drones or sliders. I’m just a chick with a camera, which helps me get all up in your face without actually being too in your face to capture your authentic emotions and reactions. I believe that the one thing that transcends all the fancy gear, editing styles and even storytelling techniques is the TRUTH.
So I’m here on a mission to seek the real versions of you and your day, and craft these into moving keepsakes that are fun, rad and totally true to you, for you to rewatch and relive for life.
