This wedding highlight film follows Lan and Jess on there big day. We started filming at The Holy Trinity Methodist Church which gave us some amazing shots as the priest asked everyone to stay seated as the bride made her entrance.

The sun was beaming even though it was shot late last year and the guests were happy for us to get some great stabilised shots of las and jess in the gardens of the venue.
We left the couple as they moved onto their first dance and loved every part of the day, Laz and Jess went onto enjoy the rest of their Wedding with their two children and we wish them all the luck in the future.

How to make a cinematic wedding film
As a Wedding Videographer or Cinematographer you always face the same challenge. Shooting, producing and editing high end cinematic wedding films with a cast you didn't choose and a non existent crew. Lots of people in the Wedding industry approach this task in different ways. Some people swear it's the film equipment they use, some people swear your gear doesn't matter. But here is the truth.
Black and white Photography is a favorite with nearly everyone. Ironically enough one of the biggest stages of progression in cameras was when color cameras became available at consumer price level.
Fast forward to this generation and we want to change everything back to black and white. Of course nothing in the digital age is shot and black and white, it's shot in color and then turned back to black and white in the editing process, giving you 2 options instead of one.
A lot of the time in meetings the issue of Photography / Videography style comes up. By style I mean the way in which you shoot. Essentially there are a few basic styles and then lots of variations in between, I aim to cover them in the next couple of blog posts to give everyone a clear understanding.
Nearly every Bride and Groom want a Wedding Photographer. Not all are as set on having a Videographer, but why? I've heard some people say its not in the budget and others talk about similar expense issues. What always seemed strange to me is the amount of money in the budget for the day it's self, but the lack of money invested in the memories.
The day it's self flies by and after the post wedding slump it's natural to rush back to the memorabilia from the day to relive the special moments. Photographs are amazing for this but video tells a whole different story in it's self. Here are some comments I saw when recently browsing an article on www.theknot.com.
"The only regret I have about our wedding is not having a videographer. The day goes by so quickly -- you really miss so much of it. I look back now and wish I would have spent the money for it."
"I was really worried that I might regret not having a videographer -- not only to capture my fiance and me, but mostly our family members. I know it's kind of morbid, but I know they won't be around forever and I wanted to capture their voices and mannerisms."
