Lana & Sean - Cinematic Feature

Lana & Sean - Cinematic Feature

Hand drawn notes with the gift for each grooms-man. Vera Wang dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. The fort Garry ballroom looking resplendent in the year's most elegant colours. There was an enormous amount of thought and attention to detail that went into this wedding celebration. And what a great couple Lana and Sean make too.

My favourite parts of the day had to be the father of the Bride's speech and the live band playing as every single person in the room was in that big circle on the dance floor. I also love the open emotion that both Sean and his father-in-law-to-be showed at the first look in the hotel. Priceless. It's those real moments of joy that are the highlight of my day.

I'll let the cinematic feature tell you the rest of the story...

Ashley & Hugh - Photo and Video Highlights

It was a scorching day. We had been walking around in the park for a couple of hours getting some pretty spectacular images and footage....

So what do you do when you've been in a heavy suit and dress tramping around the forest? You go grab a two four at the L.C. of course... in your dress!

Now that you're suitably refreshed, you go down to the river for more breezy photos. 

And a little fun with the boys...

There will be time later for more emotions and a bit of romance when we get to the reception....

And, when it's all said and done, if you hire the right videography company, you will have a beautiful movie about the whole day too... 

Congratulations Ashley and Hugh. It was truly a pleasure to be a part of your day. We had so much fun shooting you guys. My only complaint... I wish I could have been there for the trash the dress session too... that looked AWESOME! (readers: it was out of town and I was shooting another wedding. They went into the bush hunting in a wedding dress!!!)

Cristylee and Darryl - Teaser

I am always looking for new and interesting ways to shoot video during the "photoshoot" part of the wedding. I prefer to refer to it as the "let's have fun and try stuff" part of the day. It's the one chance we as cinematographers get to actually experiment during a wedding. The rest of the day is stacked with unmissable, one take and its all over, type moments that you don't really want to try stuff out on. You have to nail those shots 100% of the time. No room for error. No take 2. During the part of the day between the ceremony and the reception we get to let our creative juices flow. We get to pose you. We get to experiment and sometimes we even get enough time to shoot something twice.

This was an interesting little move that will be part of the cinematic feature for cristylee and Darryl's video a few months from now. I just wanted to share a little teaser of it now. It's a first attempt at the technique, but I think you can see where I am going with this. Thanks to the wedding party for playing my game!

Ruby & Tanner - A Winnipeg Wedding Movie

Ruby & Tanner - A Winnipeg Wedding Movie

I smiled the whole way through this edit. It was hands down the funniest wedding ceremony I have ever filmed!

The whole week was a well oiled machine. Not a hair was out of place and everybody was so warm and welcoming. I hope I captured that in the feature film. It's a long one. Just over 30 minutes, but there was too much amazing footage to leave any more on the editing room floor. (Figuratively speaking).

The soundtrack for this one is a bit different from some of my other work. The couple had a musician (singer/songwriter) friend who performed at the second ceremony and reception. He also graciously sent me some of his original music to use. Mandippal Jadhu is his name and you should immediately go to his website here and buy his album.

No, wait... first watch the movie and then go!

And here are a bunch of stills of some of my favourite images from the film...

I get all choked up watching this

Cheryl and Adrian got married in the Summer at St. Peter's. Looking outside at the snow coming down as I watch this and write... well, let's just say I am looking forward to wedding season again. Even if it's just to be outside in the sunshine again. 

I have 2 favourite moments from this wedding. The first is the dance number the couple did when they made their grand entrance at the reception. Super fun. The second is a much more emotional one. It's someone reading a speech that was written long before the wedding by someone else. You'll have to watch it yourself. Grab a box of tissues first.
