It’s currently 1:34 in the morning, 3 hours since leaving Kim and Josh’s wedding, probably not the best time to be writing a blog post right now, but I’m currently still in that wedding high we get and it’s just a great mood to be in when writing one. I had met Kim and Josh on their engagement shoot way back last year where we filled a small concept video, which makes up the first part of their same day edit, so I’ve had their files sitting in my computer for a long time, just waiting to be put together. Today, while I wasn’t exactly active in filming too much of the day’s activities, I essentially lived it through the individual files my team was giving to me on their memory cards as they day went on. Meeting them for the first time, my first impressions were that they were both energetic, easy to break the ice with, and even though they say they aren’t great in front of the camera, they were so perfect and naturally….. in love with each other! The emotions and smiles you’re going to see in their videos are 100% genuine.
20 minutes to debuting their same day edit, I’m sitting in the 4×6 closet space they’ve given me to edit in and as I’ve watched the video again, giving it one last check through, in my head I worried if this video would be good enough for Kim and Josh. I was worried if this video would live up to their expectations because everything else leading up to this hour was incredible and beautiful so their SDE had to be of the same quality if not better! As we pressed play and let the video roll on, the laughter and tears and hollering within the crowd accompanied by Josh’s fist high in air as the scene of him and Kim having their first kiss as husband and wife definitely got rid of all my worries. I couldn’t be happier with my team yesterday as they did a fantastic job, and I couldn’t be happier that Kim and Josh had chosen to go with us as their videographers. Thank you two so much for having us out for your beautiful day, we loved your venues, we loved your enthusiasm, and we loved partying with you and everyone else!
