Michaelen + Jared
As I was editing Michaelen and Jared’s video I was struck by how many small beautiful moments there were throughout the day. Some were emotional, like when Michaelen’s bridesmaids saw her in her dress, and some were hilarious like the best man’s large cutout of Jerod’s first selfie, but all these moments were so sincere and natural.
Each year we are in this business we have been able to better define not only our personal style, but more importantly what we want to communicate through our films. This year we made it a priority to focus more on making our films feel more present, capturing sincere emotion and allowing some room within the edit to stay “in-the-moment” longer rather than always moving on quickly to the next fancy shot. I love that with this film we were able to create scenes that make you feel like you’re in the middle of it all, seeing a moment from all angles.
On top of that, these two had such a wonderful ease on camera and really made our whole day so easy & relaxed. We are honored to have been a part of this magical day, thanks for having us there Michaelen & Jared!
