Summer is around the corner and I’ve entered into the world of wedding videography. This is something that I never actively sought out and mostly avoided. However when I received a call from a fellow videographer that I’d met on a shoot only days before I decided to see what this niche had to offer.
My first experience was editing a hightlight video, which offered up fun new challenges. Using my emotions to lead me from one cut to the next has frequently been how I feel my way to the story at the heart of hours of footage. So it seemed easy enough to really bring forth the emotion for this special day. I learned a lot of using music and closeups to really pull that emotion to the forefront of this video. It was a fun project and I will look forward to more in the future if they come my way. I have more to learn!
Next was my first wedding shoot. 9am-11:00pm. What a day, I felt like I’d run a marathon when I woke up the next morning. Super fun though. It was a different style altogether with very little planning and the need to be ready to jump up and run to the action with your camera at a moments notice. I loved the team I was working with. Super fun and professional at the same time, I look forward to more possible collaborations in the future.
