Northern Ireland is home to some of the most beautiful green space in the Northern Hemisphere (see Game Of Thrones for evidence) and one of my favorite accents of all time. Neither of those things is particularly in evidence in this trailer from the land of my maternal forbears, but it’s really awesome nonetheless. And that look she gives him at 1:25… killer.

I think a lot of couples planning for their wedding think about the wedding location a lot, and think about the wedding film a lot, but don’t necessarily think about the two things together. And, actually, the probably the biggest factor that determines the tone, style and event quality of the wedding film is the location of the wedding. I”m not saying everyone should get married on a beach somewhere in the Pacific, I’m just saying that if you do, you should bring us with you, okay?

Happy Friday everyone and if you’re getting married this weekend, or if you’re shooting someone else’s wedding, consider incorporating a blindfold in to the first look. It’s kinda cool.

One of the things you, as a bride or groom, should evaluate when looking at wedding filmmakers is use of slow-motion. Not because it’s a good or bad thing, but simply a matter of taste. At most weddings we shoot we shoot some slo-mo, typically on the dancefloor or during our session with the couple alone. Most cameras that most wedding filmmakers are using these days are capable of at least 60 frames per second, which produces footage that runs a little under half speed.
This trailer is interesting because of the use of slo-mo during parts of the day where you don’t traditionally see it that much, like bride’s prep. Some filmmakers don’t use any slo-mo at all, so when you’re looking at studios to shoot your wedding, think about whether slo-mo is something you’d like to see in your own wedding film and discuss the possibilities with the filmmakers you talk to.

What I love most about this trailer is how much you feel you’re in the room, getting ready with Alicia and Kris at the start of their wedding day. And that can only happen when a filmmaker truly puts their clients at ease and earns their trust. It can also only happen when brides and grooms open up enough to let their filmmaker do their thing and capture real, awesome, candid moments. We sometimes hear brides and grooms say that their chief concern is a filmmaker who is unobtrusive or doesn’t get in the way. Which is fair enough, but for the best work – and the best return on the investment you’re making – be open to letting your filmmaker do their best work, however they achieve it.
P.S. I love Seattle. When can I go back?
P.P.S. More food trucks at weddings

I must admit that I remain bewildered by how obsessed some Americans are with their alma maters, long after they’ve graduated. But if it were possible to buy University of York high-tops, I’d be rocking them on the dancefloor too.

Elopements are pretty much a photographer and filmmaker’s dream. Totally uninhibited access, no Uncle Bobs getting in your way for the recessional, no strict venue schedule to adhere to, just lots and lots of opportunities to shoot amazing footage. Especially if the elopement is to Yosemite, like this one. Luckily for Pascal & Shamiah, the folks at Arroyo Films took all that opportunity, combined it with preparation and talent and served up a helping of awesome.

Ready for a good cry? Awesome. I’ll let Glenn from Threadless take it from here:
“Rob and Jodie met 13 years ago and have been lovers and best friends ever since. The past 12 years has seen them become parents to Tyson, Jaxon, Logan, and Grace, and happily settled in Ballarat. Rob was a heart kid at RCH Melbourne but survived to become the steadfast and wonderful father he is now. Jodie nursed her mother through her battle with COPD and she was by her side when Kathy passed peacefully 5 years ago.
Unfortunately for this family, 10 year old Jaxon was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, known as a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, in February this year. Initially he just had a bit of double vision but a week and multiple tests and appointments and scans later was given the devastating diagnosis.
He has undergone a brain biopsy and then chemotherapy and most recently, radiation therapy, and, then, shatteringly, an MRI scan- coincidentally scheduled for Jodie’s birthday- showed that there had been no improvement and indeed, the tumour has grown. There are few options left and the family have had to come to terms with the awful truth that Jaxon will not have long to live.
Jaxon himself has been an absolute fighter through all of this, going to school, and trying to remain as active as he can, being a keen basketballer amongst other sports. However, he has become increasingly dependent on his wheelchair as he has lost control over the left side of his body.
Jaxon has had only a few wishes. One is to see the New York Knicks play in Madison Square Gardens (thanks to the many kind donations this is happening!), the Starlight Foundation have granted Jaxon the other which is to see the Great Barrier Reef. And his parents are going to grant him the third; to get married while they are there.”

Hey grooms. How are you guys doing this morning? Just wanted you to watch this so you know that there is an alternative to a tux. And sure, tuxes are great for formal ballroom weddings, but if you’re getting married somewhere off the beaten path, consider a different option, like the razor-sharp single-breasted number Jon is wearing in this awesome trailer by Autumn Tree Films.
