When Kate and I flew to Fiji to photograph Ileana & Paul’s wedding we had no intention of shooting some video footage. We literally bought the video camera at the airport duty free shop for family purposes and we have absolutely no experience shooting video.
The day after the wedding we headed to the island across from the resort to shoot the trash the dress session. We took our video cam along just to play around really and shoot ourselves shooting. In the end we didn’t take much footage as Kate and I both were so into the shoot that we hardly picked up the cam.
After reviewing the footage we realized that while we may be über photographers, sadly we really suck at video. At the same time we wanted a way to replay the fun we had on the day.
So we approached Troy from Encore Media one of the videographers we recommend to our brides for weddings and asked him what he could do for us. He obviously liked a challenge and managed to merge some of the footage with our images to create a decent show.
A huge thanks to Ileana and Paul for trusting us to shoot their amazing wedding and letting us do our thing at the trash the dress session.
and a big thanks to Troy from Encore Media for using his über video post production skills to make the video what it is.
