Shooting the wedding of a relative can be a difficult line to walk. You’re not a guest but not truly a vendor either, and you want to treat the couple like any other client, while also not ignoring that things are a little different. The bride here is filmmaker Axel Marerro’s cousin, but the work does not suffer any for the connection – rather this is a beautiful and emotional trailer.

What do you when, moments before the wedding ceremony is about to begin, your beautiful mountaintop views are suddenly obscured by a bank of fog rolling in?
Well obviously you keep shooting and the result is actually kinda magical.

Fact: not enough trailers contain delicate dog grooming in the first 30 seconds. Or dogs with bow ties. Or dogs in general.
Joking aside, the presence of Hannah and Jamie’s charming wee canine is one of the things that makes this trailer by the guys at Pretty in White great – it takes time to include the little things. It’s warm, well paced, crisply shot, and full of the small moments that make a wedding day special making it totally personal but accessible too.

Oh. Wow. “Cinematic” is one of those words that can end up getting used just a little too often when it comes to wedding filmmaking. Not the case here.
With the glorious Windy City skyline and a stunning venue to play with, Chicago natives Orange Wedding Films have created this dizzyingly elegant trailer for Bhargav and Nicole. Blending grand backdrops with intimate moments, this is the kind of film we love. It uses wonderful tools and brilliant techniques, but still puts the couple and their story front and centre.

When an editor cuts dancing footage against music that you would never dance to… magical things happen. In fact, lots of magical things happen in this trailer: crying bridesmaids, more epic Lensbaby/tilt-shift shots than you can shake a stick at… that shot 1:48 of the whole congregation standing up… Ridiculous.

“I feel like my family gets extended a wee bit” | Sharon & Andy’s Scottish wedding by Little Love Films
A true Scotsman wears nothing under his kilt. Thankfully this trailer gives us no solid evidence of whether Andy is a true Scotsman. What it does give us is a beautiful glimpse into a wonderful wedding day.

Positano (and the Amalfi Coast generally) is one of those bucket-list places that everyone should probably visit before they die. I was lucky enough to go there when I was 12, but unlucky enough to go there when I was 12… and way to young and stupid to appreciate it.
Luckily this beautiful trailer is rooted in place – with both the stunning visuals and the beautiful opening words.

Happy Friday everyone. If, like me, you’re gearing up to shoot a wedding tomorrow, watch this lovely little beauty from Blighty to get your fired up.
I could not be more excited about my wedding tomorrow – amazing venue, ridiculously awesome couple and the added pressure of most of LensProToGo’s staff being in attendance. Happy shooting!

When you open with a shot like that… the hand trailer through the ears of corn… you set a pretty high bar for the rest of the trailer to live up to. Luckily the rest of the trailer features vows spoken in German, which makes it automatically good as I have little idea what they’re saying. Also luckily, the rest of the trailer is as much a visual feast as that opening shot. Enjoy.

Sometimes submissions come in for the blog and I watch the trailer and the couple in the trailer just jump off the screen at me and it’s awesome. Like here. I just *know* watching this that Josh and Emily were a delight for the folks at Kessler Films to work with, and when that’s true, beautiful films happen.
